the whole unetbootin thing baffles me. i know there are people who can get it to work, however i have never once gotten a bootable usb stick out of it with ANY distro. and it sure wasnt for lack of trying when i finally gave up.

with that being said the official supported method for creating a usb stick from inside linux is the above process. i wrote a how-to on our bitbucket not long ago but i cant find it atm. if anyone with more luck with unetbootin than me would like to do a how-to please feel free. actually we could use a how-to for making a bootable stick from inside windows too but i havent run windows in roughly 10 years so again thats outside of my knowledge

Sure, Will give it a go and post back if I can mount and unmount the two devices. there is very little one can do beside mount unmount, perhaps retrieve a photo but at least we will know if it works....Thanks

Edit:Ifuse gives error for libplist.so.1 (both devices)

root:# ifuse /media/ipod
ifuse: error while loading shared libraries: libplist.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

did reinstalls, reboot, downgrade to 115 gives same error. downgrade ifuse gives error libimobiledevice so 1,

If you really would like to try Vector linux then the first step is understanding your hardware. if you have a fairly new computer it likely employs uefi. or secure boot options. If you installed linux mint to the hard disk then the procedure may be similar. If you dual booted with windows then the procedure may be differant again. perhaps you have a second hd or need to disable secure boot. If the computer is five or six years old then you have a better chance of installing with a few mouse clicks. even ubuntu is not immune to the kleenex boxs that look so great on the table but are full of disposable fluff. Perhaps you are well versed and have discussed this in other threads. just a thought in passing. Best of luck
Cheers

Welcome to Vector.  I have been with it more or less since 5.8 or earlier.  In reading your posts, I suspect you will like it quite a lot.  Simply put, its more fun (and more work at first, as you are finding out).

Tried 3 times to install VL just wouldnt budge

I had trouble getting 7.1 RC1 to load via a unebootin-creaded usb stick, so I headed down to Best Buy, bought some CDs, burned the iso to one of them and it loaded fine from the CD.  I would try that before giving up and also, as you are not familiar with VL, I suspect your hunch to go with 7.0 is what you should go with..  Switching to final VL 7.1 when it finally arrives will be a pain, but, as you probably already know and in any event which has been noted, if you partition into 3 (swap, root and home) and don''t reformat /home, you won't have to reload your data and if, as also mentioned, you copy your config files, you can probably save some additional hassle.

There will be more programs in the repositories for 7.0.  

Good luck!

John


Thank you! Cant wait to get my hands in VL if I can ever get it to install lol.

What if I dont have a CD rom, the friend kinda built it real fast just has a dummy dead CD ROM in it heh.

In the car metaphor, VL/Slackware is like manual admission and ubuntu is automatic admission. Both drive you to the same destination, only the handling is different.

For easy upgrade in the future, create swap, / and /home partition separately.

The short answer is maby,

 they do NOT work on iOS-7.0 for mount/umount which is the purpose of the posting

they did appear to  work allowing mount and unmount of ios-4.2.1, I do not have 5x or 6x to try. but of no particular value without gtkpod or some other such app.

I would rather you build the newest LMD 1.1.6 and associates when you feel comfortable it is stable or worth your effort as it will also require gtkpod and will hopefully work with the current apple iphone models 4/5 with iOS-7.0

personally speaking I am content with the current downgraded set for the somewhat obsolete ios 4.2.1, but happy to try the new LMD 1.1.5 with gtkpod if you want to build it.

Does that make any sense?

well that really would depend on your knowledge of linux. you could just do a fresh reformat and install or you could upgrade everything. what ive been doing personally throughout the development of 7.1 (which i also do on all my slackware boxes) is keeping a seperate partition for /home which keeps all my reg user configs so there is no need to go through and customize xfce to my liking all over again, and then before i do a install of a new version i just copy any pertinant config files and so forth (my sshd.conf my ftp servers conf and so forth) from wherever they may be to my /home. that way when i reinstall i DO NOT format my /home partition and i can get my system back up with minimal fuss.

WELL when it comes to slackware... I know nothing.. Starting to dabble in it now I wanted something abit harder than the buntus / debian
So I wouldnt know how to upgrade from a RC to a full stock ready system.
