You need to use the one for your installed kernel. If you're using the final VL 7.2 version, it will be version 4.4. Check by using command "uname -a" in a terminal.

Staying in the terminal, become root by command "su" and enter your root password. Next, "slapt-get -u" and then "slapt-get -i kernel4.4-stripped-src". That will do the job faster and easier.  ;D

You need to install some of the kernel sources first. Search gslapt for "stripped-src".

Thank you. There are three ones in Gslapt as pictured. What's to do next? Shall I try --ignore-excludes?

We talked about this in IRC last night (read "this morning"), and we hacked it into a working condition. Today, nightflier dropped into the channel and straightened me out on the xinitrc difference between STD and Light:

There are several ways to get from a terminal session to an X session. Two of those ways are fairly standard:
  • Edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, or link it to an existing xinitrc.<DE> to select the system-default X session. Users wanting something else then write their own ~/.xinitrc. 7.2 Light does this.
  • Place a .xinitrc in /etc/skel/, so newly created users have one. The version in skel starts the usual DE, of course. Users change that by editing. 7.2 Standard does this.

Slim's notes suggest providing a ~/.xinitrc somewhat like its own template. You did that, which overwrote the existing, working ~/.xinitrc. And now you know a lot more and had more fun than if everything had gone smoothly first time.

For someone looking in on this, what finally got the session to start with needed auths was to replace the end of Slim's "login_cmd" line with . /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.xfce. But that left no choice of session either at login time, or by a regular user's edit of ~/.xinitrc.

How 'bout this?:  Think of Slim as a startx substitute. Read startx(1) and write an /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.slim that works as that manpage describes, Allow for a "system-default" session to be started if no parameters are given, and for startup of the indicated session when one is. Hint: xinitrc.* are in the same directory. Don't get in startx's way, nor in gdm's.

Enjoy

Hallo!

I have just installed Vectorlinux in Virtualbox. There is no full size screen available - maximal size of the display is 1024x768. Not 1280x1024.
I have tried to install Virtualbox Additians, but there was a failure - "The headers for the current running kernel were not found".
The question - how can I install the missing headers. The system is VL-7.2-STD-FINAL (32 bit)?

One thing to check:
Code: [Select]
su root -c 'diff -u /home/<user that fails>/.bashrc /home/<user that works>/.bashrc | less'

I got  a strange thing.
I installed slim several times on VL Light using the same config files, without any problem.
But, when I installed it on VL-STD I got the following error, when attempting to open the USB memory with spacefm:

Code: [Select]
Error creating textual authentication agent: Error opening current controlling terminal for the process (`/dev/tty'): No such device or address (polkit-error-quark, 0)
Error mounting /dev/sdb1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorizedCanObtain: Not authorized to perform operation

However I do not get this error if I login as another user.
The only files I changed on the account with this problem were .xinitrc and .bashrc
I changed those to match the config of the user that works, but to no avail.
