You should download the 7.1 LIGHT iso.  That fits in a CD

Well the burn of VL 7.1 is on hold as can only burn CDs and they only go to 700 MB with the 7.1 having 719 MB [may be able to find a specialty cd that large, but will have to wait].
In meanwhile, since I do have command line operational, I thought I'd try to download and install the missing KDM.
Can't get internet access, since 'firefox' command gets 'command-not-found' as do 'bootpd xinitd ftpd'; /usr/bin gets 'no such file or directory'.
Only netstat and ifconfig yield results, so know have eth1 available, if not active.

Does anyone know the command sequence I'd have to use to get my internet active and access KDM?

A0.3 is now available.  Please test and report back.  Most of the bugs that were filed at the bug tracker have been resolved.  Keep checking for the list of current known issues.

This is our best build yet.  This release features the LTS 4.1 version of the linux kernel.  Build A0.3 has 4.1.13.
A lot of work has been done to ship a functional and good looking default desktop that works out of the box.

Thanks everyone for testing.  Keep the reports coming.

Almost forgot the links

OK, it seems there is no md5sum provided on that install disc that I got from icewalkers. Double-checked by running it through a different os with app for checking discs and was informed that no md5sum available and so unable to check except as to readability.
Tried a new full install anyway, and got same result.
Next will try download and burn and install of the non-SOHO new gold standard 7.1 {can't find any other SOHO apart from that one from 2012}.

Thanks for your attention and suggestions; problem was likely always in the disc.

Bit Bucket entry installer reads VL7.1---- loaded installer indicates VL7.2. Seems ok . Complaint liked xfce whisker menu in A0.2.4 with applications on the right side of menu.

Ah,I am using 32bit this error must be 64bit.

You say you did a full installation, but it sounds like that's not the case.  You should try checking the MD5SUM of the iso and re-install after you've verified it

Sorry for delay in response, but I only have internet access when at library.
Both which kdm and which gdm give same response of: which: no gdm (kdm) in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:etc. for over dozen more)

.~/.xinitrc  gives   /root/.xinitrc; Permission denied  Tried many other variations, su, etc. but no access.

cat  .xinitrc  gives  exec  startkde
which .xinitrc  gives  no .xinitrc in (all the above)

whereis  gives command-not-found
vi  .xinitrc  gives  command-not-found

just 'xinit' gives command-not-found
