No mouse or keyboard could be a signal pointing to kernel-modules package. Unfortunately its very hard to debug without those devices :(

I tried installing LibreOffice 5.3 but it gave me this error.

javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
/opt/libreoffice5.3/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

Please help.

The link you provided was installed.  It also froze when trying to install LILO.  Reinstalled w/o boot loader - both gui and cli login have no keyboard or mouse.
I've also learned NOT to do a mass upgrade - finally got b1 re-installed and finishing the upgrades to the packages I'm using.

Tried starting to cli - still no keyboard or mouse.

Thanks, that also confirms that it is not an X issue, but a system problem.

Not sure what to suggest next, except maybe see if Light does the same thing?  :-\

Thanks for being patient and persistent with the testing. :)

When at the login screen, can you press "Ctrl-Alt-F2" and get to a text login?

Reinstalled VL7.2b2 (32 bit) with/out boot loader.  Started from CD - reached login screen - NO keyboard or mouse.
I still have b1 usable.

Tried starting to cli - still no keyboard or mouse.
Sorry!  Didn't see your post below.  Since ctrl-alt-del has no effect, I don't imagine your method would work.  I used
linux root=/dev/sda5 ro 2

If you never got the "All tasks done" and "Reboot" button, the installation didn't finish. I'd try again and select either GRUB or "none". If you elect not to install a boot loader, you'll have to boot from the CD, then install the boot loader of your choice.

Installed 7.2-B2 (32 bit):
Stalled installing (LILO) Boat loader.
Power off
used cd to boot to sda5:  gets to log on - no keyboard or mouse!  (Would using B1 cd to install from HD or boot make a difference?)
md5sum checks OK.

Just installed VL64-STD-7.2 B1 from a USB stick (used instructions found on an Arch Wiki). Used the Automatic option.

After installing, I got an error message that the Xscreensaver was very old. Did a system upgrade (probably shouldn't have) and istalled JRE runtime environment and Google Chrome.

Under most circumstances, doing upgrade is "the thing to do" as test releases progress. The problem here was a needed change to Network Manager that breaks existing installs due to path and other changes.

If you decide to reinstall, you may want to try the unreleased B2.

B2 already includes the changes introduced by the new build of NM, so that will go smoother. John, your current installation is still salvageable if you wish. One tip: the location of NM's pid file has changed. Also, make your /etc/NetworkManager.conf look as much like /etc/ as is practical on your system. Especially, the dnsmasq line should be commented out unless you're specifically using that. Internal mutations of hostname are also involved, which may be the reason for your connection problems.

I wanted to install some extra applications, but couldn't find them in GSlapt. Tried to add the "extra" repo but got a message after trying to add the repo and reloading:

"This package source failed or is not available."

Had the same problem when I tried to enable the patches repo. I checked the forums as well as this page

but can't seem to find a solution.
It's normal now to use only the untested repo until just before release. Part of the release process is populating the stable repos such as packages, extra, and patches. More packages need to be built for 7.2. We already have the scripts for almost all of what's needed, but just haven't updated the versions and triggered the builds. Too many out-of-date packages no longer maintained upstream were built for 7.1.

Please continute to test B2 and mention which packages you miss, so they can be updated. Half (or more) of the staff is taking a fairly long breather at this point before pushing on to release, so responses will be slow for now; but your input won't be wasted.

would it be fair to say as the upgrade would likely come from an untested repository, I would not suggest it during early or beta testing?
 you may try packages that are available for testing via gslapt. but installing them all at once may be problematic.

Add: I may be mistaken but I think the B2 includes a newer kernel. re security advice threads. and also some fix for network issues, thus may solve some issues.
