January 2015,7.1 release announcement,yet all of the talk is from back in 2014. I have just started with Vector,tried 7.0,7.1RC1,7.1RC2,7.1RC3.Right now using RC2 other than password,grub,gparted,xarchiver and running text on boot O.K.
Using RC3 grub actually finished but old BCM4306 no go did not start xfce4 . quit using RC1 because of password issue,thought RC2 may be improvement same issue,if I want dumb warn and let me choose dumb.Not Big Brother here. Seems to me I am the only one with current posts,as I asked in another forum or whatever,is VectorLinux in neutral?

Are you trying to indicate finances are a problem? Seems as though nothing has moved since somewhere in 2014.

Your email reminded me that I have been so busy spending the money I made winning cases with Vector (5.8-7.0) that I have sorely neglected my duties to the good folks at Vector.  I just donated $100 to the cause.

Installation asks fo user and password,enter my usual stupid simple and O.K. get finished with install can't login invalid user or password. Try VASM must do this and that, should allow simple  and warn you accept it and done.Change user and password requirements. My computer if I want dumb allow it after warning me.
Grub2 never finishes installing,maybe doesn't like installing in /.
Xarchiver wants packages,all don't seem to be in repository,by the way when was it last updated?
Is Vector Linux moving forward or just chugging in place?

First thing I would check is that VLC is looking at the correct device, under Media > Open Disc > Disc device

Another way of doing it is to first mount the DVD, then use VLC > Media > Open Directory, and navigate to the mounted VIDEO_TS folder.

My wife got me the first season DVD set of Game of Thrones. I have loaded vl lite onto my Asus  eee 701b pc. I am using a Memorex slimline portable optical drive. When I try to play a DVD I get the following message "File reading failed. VLC could not read file". I know the DVD is good as I watched some of it on the DVD player connected to the TV. Any ideas on what I need to do to get this to work?

I'm considering purchase of a latop having no buttons on its touchpad. What's the usual way a 3-button mouse is emulated on a "plain" touchpad?

I can look at the actual method of setting this up later. What I'm wanting to know is which gestures/actions/key presses are usually used to emulate each of the 3 buttons?

The dd method works well, but going the fat32/syslinux way has advantages. You end up with a simple, single storage volume where you can stash additional files and carry with you. There is less danger of borking your system.

If you dig a little deeper into syslinux, you can put several distros on one thumb drive and create a startup menu with several options, and still have space left over for other data.
