I have though.
Nothing seems to "wake up" my Thinkpad X30 with VL 7 Standard installed. The CPU fan is spinning like crazy.

its really best to stick with the package tools supplied with vector.. slapt-get from cli or gslapt from gui are all you'll need........if you find that thre is a package you want/need that arent in the repos just ask and we'll build it for you

This method can be used with partitions on the stick that are formatted to ext filesystems. Just use the extlinux command instead of the syslinux command.
For example, if the target is /dev/sdb2 mounted at /mnt/tmp, instead of 'syslinux /dev/sdb2' use 'extlinux -i /mnt/tmp'.

One advantage here is that it seems to be easier to boot using the ldlinux.sys generated by extlinux when the target is an extended partition. Can be done if your boot record is set up for extended partitions (lilo -M /dev/sdb ext, for example), or you use an initial loader for the whole USB disk that understands them.

The directory for the configuration files is still called "syslinux" and is still created the same way.
Note: Some of the 7.1 RC releases reference the isolinux directory in their config files, so copying the isolinux/ contents to syslinux/ (then renaming files within syslinux/ as suggested) is more likely to work than renaming isolinux/ is.

Please move the Unetbootin in 7.0's testing repo to the stable portion of the repos.

Unetbootin is not the currently supported way to get a VL release onto USB, but many will choose to do that. Moving it to stable will make it easier for those who've recently installed 7.0 to use Unetbootin to prepare a 7.1 install USB if that's their choice when release comes (or before).

nope, it is not because the problem of cd errors, memory errors, etc .. i faced this problem when installing VL on some new PCs , while other PCs had no such problem when VL7 installed.

I think this is because the installation GUI of VL7 failed to work on some VGAs.

If you still want to install VL7 on your machine, try to install it without GUI :
short after the PC boots to VL7 CD, it shows you "boot:" at the end of the bottom line, the simply type 'install' (then Enter) to start instaling VL7 in no-GUI mode .. the rest of the process is on your own..
(actually this hint is shown above "boot:" line)

if you miss to type 'install' , VL7 CD automatically select installation in GUI mode.

one more thing : at the end of installation you would have to select VGA setting mode. selecting AUTO always works in my experience. probably you can try to use VESA. if it fails, you can re-install and try AUTO.

Good luck ..
