what are you doubting, that ios7 does not work or that ios 4.2.1 does  Wink

Appears a common issue but I have seen no fix outside the newest still unstable 1.1.6 and depends. they are not packaged for simple ./configure make make install, they use /usr/local I think...anyway

No Dice Sad

I get in and when I get to the part that says pick your screen size it says HOLD TIGHT SCREEN MIGHT BLINK

then it says loading root
and checking for existing user

then this comes up:

then it says rebooting..............

I tried it with nogui

I tried letting x configure the screen

Tried 1024, my native 1280 same result. just shuts down and reboots.

grab the iso and try this, which is our "supported" method for installing from usb stick

switch to root
Code:
su -

change directory to where the iso is
Code:
cd /dir/of/iso


"hybrid mode" which can be booted from either CD-ROM or from a device which BIOS considers a hard disk or ZIP disk, e.g. a USB key or similar.
Code:
isohybrid name-of-the.iso


find your usb sticks drive designation (e.g. /dev/sdb)
Code:
fdisk -l

create a bootable usb stick  (please double check your drive designation, if you supply the wrong designation (i.e. your hdd instead of the usb stick) you will wipe that particular drive irreversibley)
Code:
dd if=name-of-the.iso of=/dev/<your-usb>

note: fdisk -l will return something such as /dev/sdb1 for your usb stick, however in the dd command above (the very last one) do NOT include the digit 1. just use /dev/sdb (for example)

Hi folks,

Tried 3 times to install VL just wouldnt budge...

I used both UNETBOOTIN and one thats built into Ubuntu.

first try:
http://i886.photobucket.com/albums/ac69/CMAR606/VectorLinux/0414141236.jpg

2nd try:
http://i886.photobucket.com/albums/ac69/CMAR606/VectorLinux/0414141328.jpg

3rd and final try:
http://i886.photobucket.com/albums/ac69/CMAR606/VectorLinux/0414141248.jpg


On this custom built pc.. I have to disable the hardrive in the bios then reboot and it picks up on the usb sticks and boots to it. But as you see thats as far as I got.

Now I am stuck on Linux Mint Debian Sad

I was really hoping to try VL... Weird it installed perfectly in the VM but not on this pc

I even redownloaded the ISO a 2nd time ( screenshot 2 and 3)

I am using SQLite v 3.7.5 which is the latest in the gslapt list of packages.  I have run into a problem that a number of others have encountered apparently.  Some of the functions in the SQLite docs are not available in v 3.7.5 - instr for example.

The SQLite web page indicates that v 3.8.4 is the latest.

Has anyone installed SQLite from the SQLite web page?  Is it reasonably straightforward?  Bearing in mind I've only used gslapt and installed from packages before.

Any and all help appreciated.
