Hey, Locater,...

I have an old PIII I keep around for the grandkids when they come.  It's running W2Kpro,...since I have dozens and dozens (or more) old dos and windows games on it for the kids.  I'm running an old Nvidia in it (can't think exactly which one just now).  But I had the old driver on a CD for it.   I think a lot of the older 2-dimension cards will work fine with W2k (like Matrox Millinium).  That's one of the old cards that I had in it, before I added the Nvidia.  (Got my Nvidia off of Ebay).

Yeah,...I use Vector for all the important stuff on my main computer,...but for all those old dos and windows games for the grandkids, I use an older windows.  Got wine on the Vector box, and can run some nice win games on it for the kids, as well.

EDIT:  The Nvidia card I have in the PIII W2k box is a ...Geforce4 Mx 440  AGP8x.  Had to use an older driver for it.  But it works really well.

At present the 7.1 testing repository isn't used, and it looks like it will remain that way through the release cycle. This is an intended change; later RC's ship without the http version of the testing repo even mentioned in slapt-getrc. The untested repo is there, but commented out in such a way that it can be uncommented only by direct edit -- not via GSlapt. I assume that's also intentional because the rest of the disabled repos have the "#DISABLED" tag that GSlapt latches onto.

The 7.1 testing repo is empty. Note that this does not apply to 70 which still uses testing.

on my netbook (32-bit VL 7.1) with the testing repository enabled
Now slapt-get --update fails if the testing repository is enabled.  I checked it, and the package list is missing, which is the error I'm seeing.  Without testing it runs but I still have unmet dependencies.

It might help if we knew the make and model of printer you are using, what driver(s) you're using, the version of VL...

Almost anything from Epson should work.  My XP-200 printer/scanner/copier works perfectly and was inexpensive.  I believe I had to install a driver from the Epson website when I installed the VL 7.1 RC to get it to scan, but that's minor.
