Tried to test knoppix with apacher 16G pendrive,which was made 2 partitions (one in ntfs, another in XFS),downloaded to /dev/sdb5(xfs)  with opera bruiser,
once it was finished,

the file name
"KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso" can't be shown  and displayed at all under console at all.....

using partition tool and other disk tool  found that /dev/sdb5 was occupied with big 4.2G file, but file name can't shown at all....

any special commands available to sort out missing file name? currently, with ls command,"KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso" can't be listed at all under console  although /dev/sdb5 was occupied with this knoppix dvd iso already

Using VB version 5.1.4 with a standard vbox (1gig ram, 12 gig hd ) the VL-7.2-light B1 iso from OSL booted in the voptical drive and using the automatic option on the graphical installer, installed light 7.2 b1 in about 10 or so mins, reboot took a min or so to desktop. looks fine to me.
 I had to adjust the display to show the full desktop as the virtual window was not showing the icebar. On this machine (acer e5) the qualcomm atheros qca9377 wireless was not detected, but not a surprise. I think linux mint has included it in their current offering if you want wireless out of box for that (qca9377). (edit..appears on board wireless does not work in virtualbox, you need a usb wireless stick for that..lal)
Perhaps checking the iso and or vb settings would help the previous poster. or adding addition information if assistance was desired.

I started the installation of VL 7.2 Beta 32bit light version on my laptop under virtualbox and I for whatever reason it is taking forever to complete the installation. I pause the installation after an hour as I need it to go to bed. Is there any reason why the installation is taking forever on a virtual machine? I have installed other distros and the installation has been pretty fast. I wonder if the issue is just with VB. I just thought I mentioned this in case you guys need to do something about it.

I am not sure, but changing the icon theme solves it and all icon themes seem to work.

I am Scot and I have been around Linux for years but, quite recently, I began to install and use it.
I wanted something resembled xp but, was not xp.  Thus far, I really like having Vector 6 and 7.
I took on a dual install for a while.  Then, I tried out several flavors on a desktop and and OLD laptop.  So far, it's been a great adventure!  I feel that Linux is finally becoming less scary for us newbs.  I think I am going to try another dual install with xp and deepin.
The only things I am having any trouble with are 1-finding a good camera for the webcam. 
2-figuring out how to connect my laptop to the internet.  The desktops have worked fine!
Aside from that, it seems to be going well!  Thanks for having me aboard!

Hi igoreza, automatic partitioning does not always work, my advice would be to use Gparted for partitioning the disk and run the install again.
Let us know how it goes!

Hi folks. I am trying to install Vector Linux 7 on my old Intel Core Duo iMac. I boot the dvd and choose the option Automatic Partitioning, but the process is taking too long, actually it is taking hours and hours and never gets done. Please I need your help on this issue. I really want to have the Distro on my computer. I appreciate your help.
