Advice or comment on using VL7.1 untested packages.  Also gslapt does not execute from menu but will from terminal,asked about that before.

you can also use ntpdate, ntpd, or the command timeconfig

No..adding RC repositories would be unwise to say the least. VL7.0 has been maintained and the most recent additions would be found in the untested repository..this is by default turned off in gslapt as it can be problematic when updating for obvious reasons. however it may help you to find some additional packages that are stable but have not yet been moved to standard repositories. you would toggle it in gslapt under edit preferences sources. and refresh the packages list. this should be unchecked and the list refreshed when finished and used with caution as the packages may be yet unstable and cause the forum new packages are posted for testing in package news and updates.
naturally there is a limit to the updatability of any system at which time a new build is required. the developers are actively working on the same and have released alpha, beta and rc1 to date. this is a completely new process and rebuild and as such is taking longer than any previous release. Although newer RC are being built they have not been posted for public testing thus I can only suggest patients.
What version of VL7.0 did you install? VLocity, Standard gold or Light?

I'm kind of surprise that no one has responded to my question about upgrading v7.0.
I have another question, can we make slapt-get point to the RCx repositories to upgrade packages? If, so, how do we do it?
Would upgrading the packages from RCx repositories be OK?

I downloaded and installed vl7.0 last night on a laptop and updated the packages. I noticed that a lot of packages are out of day. Is 7.0 been updated? Am I missing something?

Thanks. I can't find anything in the menus that allows time change, but your fix solved my problem. I cleared my desktop of all icons, so moving icons isn't an issue now.

If you happen to find a stick of ram (DDR pc2100 @266mhz) to add to your d600 it will also improve performance, in addition to lxde. I think the max is two d400 has 1 gig and is rather snappy with fluxbox.

See if there's anything in Menu > System > vasm/vasmcc that handles this. I never ran this particular version of VL (I'm assuming 7.0[.1] 64-bit), so I don't know.

If that doesn't pan out,
/sbin/hwclock -u -s

If that fixes it, save the info for next boot:
printf  '# Hardware clock is set to:\n\n%s\n' UTC >/etc/hardwareclock
If the above leaves you with just what you have now,
/sbin/hwclock --localtime -s
printf'# Hardware clock is set to:\n\n%s\n' localtime >/etc/hardwareclock

One or the other should do it. The system time will be properly saved to hardware clock on shutdown and reloaded at next boot.

Wish I had something to offer on rearranging the desktop. Does right-clicking on the background help?

I just yesterday came back to Vector with the VLocity (64-bit) version. It looks good, but somehow I can't change the time, which seems to be set at Greenwich time. I tried "hwclock --utc" from the cli, but nothing happened on my desktop.
Also, how do I unlock the desktop so I can move the icons around?
Sorry if these questions have obvious answers, but I haven't found them yet.

Welcome and thanks for the Statue of Liberty.  Perhaps you could talk the powers that be into giving us another one. The one you gave us is no longer working.
