Welcome Smiley
You are using VLocity 7.1 or 7.0.1?

slapt-get --update does not work. it goes through the motions just like youd expect but it does not find new packages. it is not updating and finding new packages and there are no errors.

gslapt DOES work, works just fine...finds new packages just like youd expect.

well if gslapt is merely a front end gui for slapt-get why does the front end gui work but not the command line program itself that the gui is using?

it seems to be local to my machine, others have not been able to reproduce this issue

Greetings to VectorLinux.

I am here because I want to 'upgrade' all my family & household PC's from Windows to Linux.
(I have Win 8.1 and hate it; all 10 other PC's run Win XP 32 or x64, some multi-boot)

In my previous life I used to be a HP-UX sysadmin, so the CLI is no problem for me, but that was a long time ago, and times have changed.

Currently researching my most 'safe' option to enable wife and kids to still use their PC's, but not with MS.Windows.  AND I need to make the transition as painless as possible; ~ no CLI/command promt for them.
I plan to dualboot their PC's to accomodate their off-line Windows games, but all on-line actions via Linux.

So, I am trying out the VLocity 7.0.1.   ~ 1st installation last night went reasonably OK, taking about 55 minutes on a clean PC. However, there are a couple of problems:

1. I cannot create a user (using the GUI), and have to do everything as root.
2. Realtek sound does not work.

Initial impression not bad;  I hope to get this first installation working asap, but there will be a steep learning curve!

Can you try libimobiledevice-1.1.6 v2, libusbmuxd-1.0.9 and usbmuxd-1.0.9_20140417git from the untested repo?

No worries hata_ph, I appreciate the kind effort

According to this thread the problem was solved with the new builds of libimobiledevice 1.1.6,and depends.

the 1.1.5 package set you built worked but had the trust no trust loop issue with iOS-7 on the iphone4 and no gtkpod

with the 1.1.6 package set ifuse gave error for libplist so.1 and the rebuild of ifuse gave error no connection

my understanding is that usbmuxd looks for libplist and libimobiledevice looks for both, ifuse uses libimobiledevice to mount device

The pkgs from imobiledevice want to install to /usr/local rather than /usr so I was not sure how to configure and make them.

however this information should point anyone interested in connecting the newer iphones in the right direction.

with ifuse working one can mount the device however this has limited understanding is that shotwell will allow photo extractions and gtkpod, amorak and perhaps other music apps allow transfer of music and video files.

I downgraded as mentioned earlier and had success with ifuse and gtkpod with the iphone3g iOS 4.2.1 I suspect this would also work with older ipods and other devices using 4.2.1

Although the iphone3g iOS 4.2.1 is obsolete in the apple world it is still popular with those who like to jailbreak the units and install cydia. The redsnow works well and the iboot hack that allows install of the iboot loader and dual boots android is interesting.

I played with both but restored the phone and use it as an ipod music player with the utube app and game of solitaire...not very exciting but it is nice to be able to add music via my Vectorlinux laptop

The newer iphone with ios7 can work with itunes on windows or copytrans manager with copytrans drivers installer as alternative if anyone still dualboots xp or 7, I unfortunatly formatted windows for the added drive space.

If this hasn't been resolved by this weekend, I will do an install of 7.1 RC1 with unetbootin.  I am using 7.1 RC1 now, so it will be the version of unetbootin in the 7.1 repository.  I am sure it will work, but will detail my steps and forward them to you.  Further, II am reasonably sure I have loaded 7.0 via unetbootin several times.  Memory may be playing tricks.  So I will try that too, and report.  But can't do it for a few days.. Unetbooten is so easy if you have a large enough usb stick.  Just download the iso, put it in /home/src, open unetbootin, at the bottom navigate to home/src and highlight the iso, then press OK.  It will install to your usb stick.

When installing in the "new"computer, put the usb stick in and reboot.  Depending on the age of the computer, you can select a special boot order (usually F12) and just install.  If its an older computer, you have to go to bios, enable legacy usb, then to boot order, then if usb doesn't show, open "disk" and that should show you the usb disk as a hard drive.
