Removed the KVM switch Used 7.0 to add 7.1 to lilo.conf and restore my MBR.  7.1 wants to login in TUI mode it should have been GUI, still no keyboard, mouse or power switch.  Will try reinstalling with out using Lilo (or Grub).  Posting this from 7.0.

I'd like to give everybody an update on the status of the 7.1 release.

Earlier this week, the release process was set in motion.  As a result, the untested repository has been merged into the stable areas.  This means that all of you who are currently running one of the RC releases or if you already installed the FINAL iso available @ vlcore, please update your SOURCE lines in slapt-getrc to point to the stable areas.

Everything that was in untested has been merged into these areas.

For the 32-bit installations
Code: [Select]
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.1/packages
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.1/extra
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.1/patches/:OFFICIAL

For the 64-bit installations
Code: [Select]
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.1/packages
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.1/extra
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.1/patches/:OFFICIAL

Everything is lining up now... we should have an official announcement on the 7.1 release soon.

Enjoy.

RC 4.6.6 32-bit, tested in virtualbox and on real hardware:
Google Chrome and Chromium browsers segfault.

Verified. On actual 32-bit hardware.
Unfortunately, the nature of the google-chrome package does not help this issue.
Google does not distribute the source code, so we are not compiling and linking it to our installed libraries.  Instead, they distribute a .deb and .rpm binary (precompiled).

This means that any progress on our development may render the binary useless, and because we dont have the source code, we cannot recompile it, patch it or fix it in any other way.

Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about the 32-bit version at this point.

You're very welcome. Did you try it? If so, did that get you a working java?

I had an ulterior motive here. It has been discussed whether, instead of hashing out exactly what Oracle's license means to VL, we should provide an "install or upgrade jre" package that would automate almost all the process.

If this worked on 7.0, that's a good sign. Someone still needs to make up fresh scripts and rearrange those as a package in its own right, if going that way is decided on.

Thing is, I'm not sure you're still on 7.0. Mind letting us know for sure?

Ah, boot installed system, not the installer. I misunderstood.

use "linux root=/dev/sdb2 ro 2"

I've already typed "install" and run the installation - twice!  Both times, it would freeze at "Installing boot loader".  The MLB is hosed so that I have to insert the CD and type
Code: [Select]
linux root=/dev/sdb2 roand the system runs until it asks for user and password.  At this time, the keyboard and the mouse have no effect.  Most other times, if I touch the power button, the system will go through a normal shut down.  Now I have to hold the power button about four seconds until it shuts off power.
So I ask again, is it possible to enter the system on HD from CD in text (TUI) mode instead of GUI?
