i come across a neat little app called "lshw" so i packaged it up for 7.1
 ive run it on my machines and the amount of detailed info it gives is pretty awesome
its currently in the 7.1 untested repos.

lshw (Hardware Lister) is a small tool to provide detailed information on the hardware configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory configuration, firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86 or EFI (IA-64) systems and on some PowerPC machines

use xboot 14 beta, it does in 2 min. but then, as here somewhere seen,  you need to open usb drive and open the image of vector linux with winrar and then copt vector linux folder to your usb drive, so that you shall have image and folder, then install, if does not work with 1 point, use 2 point - mount hard drive partition.

In your other post you mention VL7.0 Light, so that's what I'll assume.

Abiword is found in this repository:
direct link:

After installing it, run command "abiword" in a terminal and see if it runs.
If not, you might need additional packages, like goffice. Here is the list of requirements:

Hello, i've got an old laptot with Vector with IceWM... it's very poor (oviuosly) but i need only to write some documents... but i have a big problem..
There are only abs (similar to excel) and ePDFviewer... but there isn't any word editor similar to word...

For 3 hours i try to look for some packages (ready to install) to install at least one word editor.. but  Huh i can't look for any packages ready to install.
Someone, could link to me at least one link to download a .txz?  (abiword or similar)

PS: i haven't got internet connection so i must move file with a key to laptot.
PS2: laptot has only 64mb-ram

Thank you.

After rebooting, I did the 'lspcmcia' and there was no driver associated with the card.

Please post the make and model of your card, and the output of running lsmod in the terminal.

You didn't comment on my remarks about the 'HowTo' being out of date -- are you familiar with the document I referred to?
Do you know if it is in revision? Do you know of a similar, better written document?

Thanks again -- Ray

I am familiar with that document and it is, indeed, old. It was written for VL 5.x iirc. There are no plans for updating it since we expect network cards to work out of the box now, without user intervention. Of course things can still go wrong and we will be happy to help you.

HTH, Rodrigo
