What number are we on at the moment?  Would quite like to test on my p3 Compaq machine with less than 400mb ram and 10GB hard drive

Installed VL-7.1-STD-RC3.1.iso via dvd to toshiba satellite a-100 sk4 (32 bit 80gig with 2gig ram)

checked md5, OK, burn gave no errors, install went well both gui and text installs

used existing ext3 (empty), and default lilo to mbr, checked xfce4 for install

on reboot disk was kicked and system booted to gui log in ( and also gave option to boot existing installed os win 10 preview)

however username and password results in 10 sec timeout for xfce.

attempts with alternative sessions same result

rebooted tui, login user and startxfce4 gives gui desktop.

notice no network applet in panel guessing no driver available.

VLocity RC3.1 on dell optiplex 745 (80 gig, 4 gig ram) does login to xfce desktop and does have network applet in panel, easy connect.

this computer will not boot gui installer but did kick back to text installer. used existing ext3 /sda2 and default lilo to mbr however install proceeded to 100 % but did not replace existing grub on mbr.

not an issue, existing os still boots as usual and booted VL with disk via "linux root=/dev/sda2 ro"

the 64 bit being more useable (relatively speaking) I did some usual desktop customizations and used some of the apps with no issues so far less the annoying umplayer nag screen on each open. added smplayer via gslapt which is better, updated flash. added xfce4-timer.

not much help perhaps, but current observations. thanks

keep up the good work

adding: with toshiba laptop lspci lists network controller as  intel corporation pro/wireless 3945ABG (golan) network connection (rev 02)

adding2: there was a gdm error like modprobe.. cannot load i810 ..module  or something to that effect that flashed bye not sure it is related

This maybe a udev problem. That is the program that
usually probes the hardware and decides which kernel
module to use.

I am not sure how to answer your question
Who is in charge and where is the information.

Was going to do ndiswrapper for Realtek 8187SE,downloaded driver,rebooted VL7.1RC3.1 and network found and working,magic. I did nothing,it is  now using kernel driver r8180 seems O.K. Question is this what VL decided is what to use and if so why all the discussion about no appropriate driver? Who is in charge and where is the information?

@Dot_Dot: On a Windows system you can use unetbootin.

You'll most likely need to download the windows driver from Realtek and use ndiswrapper to use the driver. As far as I know, there is no native linux driver for that card.

This will give you an idea of what's involved.

Any driver available? Seems like all Linux has problem with this card.
