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.

This Pb loading kernel reminded me a previous experience and I decided to burn a CD rather than use unetbootin and it worked flawlessly. I could install GOLD edition.

I am using it now !

Edit : The problem I met came from the livecd installer

@otherthere : The difference in reactivity vs Light edition is important. I'm currently doing an upgrade with gslapt and will see after a reboot what free -m reports as ram usage. Perhaps something to see on the services side...

Edit 2 : I ended by installing LXDE meta - and it makes a big difference as far as speed is concerned ! - So the light edition might be the best solution for ole non-pae machines...

Back to debian. The Gold edition won't boot... pb = kernel/sata...

So light edition install in progress...

Same way for me, tried  lot of distros for this old machine. It has a Pentium M inside so U can try to boot with the forcepae, but it's so slow... I use it for the moment with a debian 8 server + lxde, it's acceptable but it's impossible to listen to music and write a text in Abiword for example, which is frustating.

I'm downloading the gold edition of Vector to give it a try. Perhaps the installation process is more powerfull than the one that is embedded in the Live edition.... experience will tell us

I'll reinstall the light edition if it does'nt work and give here a feedback Smiley

I did not try adding xfce to the Light install and rather installed fluxbox and customized it. if xfce is available you will find it in the gslapt package manager. update the package list after install and search xfce. it will not be customized like the std version as you may expect, but likely possible.

If the d600 has the same spec as my d400 you may find pae the issue and will have to search for non pae distros. I tried several at the time like xubuntu and solydx but not everything worked out of the box, so I was happy to find Vector Light worked perfectly and is still installed at the moment. My answer for the STD version with xfce was to install to a pae complient computer. perhaps I am off base or mistaken...just my experience with the d400 as I recall it.

Hi overthere and thank you for your answer.

I already tried the light edition which works OK on this machine. I was just attracted by the look and feel of this Xfce version...
Of course I could re-install the light edition and install xfce on this base but I'm not sure to be able to customize it so friendly.

Is there such a batch somewhere ? Could'nt find any...

You could try the VL7.0 install cd rather than install from the live cd.

I installed the LIGHT version to my dell d400 from the install cd and every thing worked except the volume rocker which was easily added after install. the d400 has a Pentium m chip and preferred a non pae install as I recall. the d600 may be similar spec
