Menu --> IceWM --> Default Programs

They have to be previously installed, of course.

I like VL LIGHT customisation (icewmvmods) but why the heck it depends on 240 packages?! It prevents from changing default web browser or terminal, thus prevents customisation.

Hey Caitlyn, ltns, good to hear from ya.

This would be a bit of a challenge here, considering we have 0 EFI support still.  You're probably right about the ISO... would need to be re-done, but it'll almost be like starting from scratch.

Hey all,

With the spectre/meltdown bugs in mind, I made a test build of the 4.14 kernel wich will be the next LTS.  I'd like to see if anyone is interested in testing it and reporting back results please.

To test, enable the untested reporitory (can be done via gslapt).

Code: [Select]
# slapt-get -u; slapt-get -i --no-upgrade kernel4.14{,-modules,-headers,-stripped-src}

After installing, be sure to run grub-mkconfig or update your lilo.conf and reboot.

Intel Atom SOCs introduced in 2015-2017 use a 32-bit EFI to boot a 64-bit OS.  SUSE (Open and commercial) supports this well in their iso.  Ubuntu, Debian and Mint do not and you need to use a script from Linuxium.au in to remaster the iso into something that will boot.  It's hit or miss in other distros.  To support this you'd need a new iso (7.2.1?) and a very new kerel for full hardware support on the various SOCs, but if it can be done by script with Ubuntu I can't believe it would be too hard to create and issue such an iso.

Configured with netconfig and I'm posting from VL64 7.2 light.

Looks like you have a handle on it, nice.  :)

Light is aimed at tinkerers. If you don't need wicd, just uninstall it and press on!

...This release is mainly an upgrade  and bug fix release to our prior 7.1 release. The base and desktop packages have all been updated to their most recent stable releases. The kernel is the latest stable lts release for better hardware compatibility. The repo contains all the latest versions of the most used software in the linux community and much more if the system needs to be expanded...

why is Chromium missing? I didn't find Qupzilla either. And I think my 15-year-old PC was more happy with 3.x kernel than 4.x.

(VL 'Lite' 32bit).

@M0E-lnx, Sorry about the delay but family matters got in the way.

Did as suggested with version 108 on clean install of vl-7.2 light. I suppose that wicd is the default network config tool, but it didn't work.

Wicd needs to access your computer network cards

Entered root password and got

Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface.
Check the wicd log for error messages.

No /var/log/wicd/wicd.log!!! then popup saying

The wicd daemon has shut down.
The UI will not function properly until it is restarted.

I don't use wifi so used netconfig to setup and all works fine.

Always wanted to try VL64 so did an install and kernel upgrade to 110.

Wicd says nothing but seems to be trying to connect every 3minutes or so, wicd.log

Thanks very much for your time and effort.

Good work on the distro. It's along time since I touched the nuts and bolts, lotta learning to do.
