General Development / Re: VL-light RC1.4
« Last post by StrayBit on April 09, 2015, 04:40:34 pm »
burned to cd and tried to install to usb stick - no go!  changed to VL-7.0 on same pc Disk Utility said the cd was bad so re-burned it from VL.  tried to boot from cd,  just sat there with dark screen and the cd tray flashing.

I realize the documentation is way behind during the build, but some of them are for Vlocity version 6.  There is even one from version 5.  Is there any chance that the installer is using a cd format invented by W$ 8?  No, I guess not if I can read the files on the cd.

My other thought was perhaps the 64 bit got mixed in to the above iso?  I don't believe that I can work with it as my newest machine is an HP 620 laptop with W$ 7 to which I added VL 7.0 STD.
Installation & Updates / Re: VL7.1 Source

As it sits, right now, the extra repos for 7.1 do contain pkgs missing from the untested repo.  But instead of using extra for them, we should be re-generating them in untested.  Should be as easy as requesting the build from the buildbot.

Eventually ALL of the stuff currently in packages, patches and extra will be removed and replaced with the stuff that now sits in untested, so I would advise everyone to only use untested for now.

Extra still contains packages that aren't in untested.

I'd say leave only untested and extra enabled, but back up slapt-getrc, then do a manual edit of /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc to move the untested line above the extra line. Except for position in slapt-getrc, extra has no special priority. Putting untested above it will grab all packages from untested if they're there, and grab the ones that aren't from extra.

During the process of release, any part of the repos can become non-operational for a bit, though that's minimized as much as possible. After release, revert all this and disable untested -- except for when you're testing specific packages there.

I note that M0E-lnx is "only" the guy who handles all this stuff, every day. So if I get gainsaid, I'd go with him :)

Loaded VL7.1RC4.2 64 tonight.  Probably won't get to play with it much until this weekend. But its cool.  Totally cool.  Amazingly fast.  Functional out of the box. wireless works great.  Bunch of  linux geniuses! Now to load texlive, lyx, etm, chrome, dolphin (or strigi or whatever program now indexes files for quick search), kmail and a couple of others no doubt.

Only thing I noticed was that machine froze on suspend.

Thanks folks!

I would disable the packages, extra, and patches sources from a 7.1 installation at this point.  untested contains the latest and most tested versions of the packages available.  These will be moved to the stable areas after 7.1 goes final

I'll have to check out that VLocity issue on 32-bit... that's minor
The firefox package got replaced by the latest ESR release.  Firefox updates too often to consider it anything close to stable.

Rc4.2 now available. Installer screen still says Vlocity 64 bit even though I install VL7.1RC4.2 STD. What happened to FireFox36? Now default FireFox 31.6 ESR. Any way installed no problem so far all is good.

It would seem that packages in source are added and removed almost daily. I needed to get  package checked 7.1 untested not there day before was there,try to load from normal source,has dependencies which if loaded does not recognize. I tend to mess things up so I do a .lot of package searching, after all is  that not what we do with RC release? I imagine response will be check source again or maybe make request,OK request file-roller
