I did not try adding xfce to the Light install and rather installed fluxbox and customized it. if xfce is available you will find it in the gslapt package manager. update the package list after install and search xfce. it will not be customized like the std version as you may expect, but likely possible.

If the d600 has the same spec as my d400 you may find pae the issue and will have to search for non pae distros. I tried several at the time like xubuntu and solydx but not everything worked out of the box, so I was happy to find Vector Light worked perfectly and is still installed at the moment. My answer for the STD version with xfce was to install to a pae complient computer. perhaps I am off base or mistaken...just my experience with the d400 as I recall it.

Hi overthere and thank you for your answer.

I already tried the light edition which works OK on this machine. I was just attracted by the look and feel of this Xfce version...
Of course I could re-install the light edition and install xfce on this base but I'm not sure to be able to customize it so friendly.

Is there such a batch somewhere ? Could'nt find any...

You could try the VL7.0 install cd rather than install from the live cd.

I installed the LIGHT version to my dell d400 from the install cd and every thing worked except the volume rocker which was easily added after install. the d400 has a Pentium m chip and preferred a non pae install as I recall. the d600 may be similar spec

The situation is... amazing !

The D600 (512 MO RAM) goes very well with the LiveCD, but when I install (without any message error) on the HD and reboot, nor the keyboard, nor the mouse work.

is there a way to take the files of the livecd and copy them to the HD ?

Any idea would be precious Smiley

I've got an ole Dell Latitude D600 with 512 MB of RAM and am searching for a distro that would give him sort of a revival Smiley
I'm fighting for the moment with the LiveCD in order to install Vectorlinux ! Hope I'll succeed as the liveCD is perfect Smiley

I live in France and do enjoy Ukulele !

I downloaded and installed vl7.0 last night on a laptop and updated the packages. I noticed that a lot of packages are out of day. Is 7.0 been updated? Am I missing something?
