If you did not supply a root password during installation, it should be blank. Just press enter when it asks for it.

Resolution: X is unable to figure out the capabilities of your screen. Try selecting "TUI" when booting, log in as root, and run command "vxconf".

Hello! i installed Vector 7 light with ICEwm... the main problem is the monitor's resolution!
In the attachments you can see that the biggest resolution is 800x600... but as you see... there are big banners black!  Huh

Someone could please help me? Is there any possiblity to add a correct resolution?

PS: i would use laptot only to write my notes at university, no more... i haven't big expectations!  Grin
PS2: root password? empty or i write "root" the password is wrong... :-(

Thank you!

Just wondering if the shellshock vulnerability in bash has been addressed in slackware or if it is a concern for vector users. this issue is front page news and patches are being applied although apparently not a complete fix have lessened the severity. If a patch is available will it be posted to security or how should I address it if it is a concern for vector? any information would be appreciated as I have currently no info on what the risk is to users or how patches are being applied.

there is a newly found exploit in bash

bash for 7.0 and 7.1 has been patched and they are in their respective untested repositories.
its strongly suggested that users update bash to these new versions

7.0 is  bash-4.2 "3vl70" in untested
7.1 is 4.2.048 in untested

mtp-gvfs has been merged into upstream gvfs.  I got the gvfs package built for 7.1 and it is currently in the untested repository.  Please test and report back.

Build logs are here
Fantastic.  I'm going to rebuild the netbook with the latest 2.2.6 build this evening and then I'll test it.
