Very sorry to hear about GrannyGeek....I had been wondering about her for quite some time.  I knew she had cancer,...but thought maybe she was too caught up in the chemo treatments to post.
I myself, just underwent the surgeries and 6 months of chemo, and know how rough it can be.  Fortunately, my last scan shows that I am in remission.  And unfortunately, it looks like GrannyGeek did not win her battle against the beast.

I agree with you about the Salix community. Salix itself is a pretty decent distro from what I've seen of it but heaven help you if you try and do something like use a graphical application whilst logged in as root. The error messages are very sarcastic, along the lines of, "Wouldn't you rather be watching TV instead?"

I also agree that Midori's not stable enough to be used as a distro's main browser.

A quick update: I booted Vector 7.1 RC1 up again today and oddly my internet connection worked even though the network icon on the desktop showed a cross, indicating that networking had been disabled. Still, all's well that ends well...

On another note, swap wasn't enabled by default when I booted it up as it is in other distros I've tried, so I had to set it manually, and there was also no option to enable swap when I installed Vector (or to set the other partitions to load on bootup), even though other distros I've seen which are based on Slackware, such as Salix and Absolute, do have these steps.

It's as though a decision was taken to truncate the text-based installation process in the interests of brevity.

Sorry, but IMO there's still work to be done before it's ready for release.

Thanks for that Christopher. Just realised from that that I knew her from somewhere else.

I was a big WordStar user in my pre-Linux days and she wrote a free users' guide for WordStar for Windows (I used the next to last DOS version, 7.0c, but I was aware of her contribution).

Small world.

As I was reading the documentation for it, i noticed that it said that I need something called "mkisofs 1.13". Where do I get a copy of it?

Just read that GrannyGeek passed away in 2012.  Cry

A new user to the forum CMAR606 knew her and related this very sad news.

I knew GG also known as " JUDY M. " on the CompuServe Linux forums I am very active on and she was always on there giving good advice I do miss her she was a riot and fought back if she thought you were not correct on something about Linux or an app. She was a good ol' gal!

here is her Obituary.. I had to look it up

Thanks hata_ph..I suspected ios7 but thought 4.2.1 may have a chance however both had the same issue so perhaps a newer libimobiledevice will help, if you find the time later.

thanks for the link also, did not see one of them and has some good info to try.

A great friend of the distro and a supportive member to all.  Will be sadly missed.
