Good to know.

doing a slapt-get update now wont do much good... nothing has been updated since the ISO was built, so you are up to date if you installed RC3.

Updates will become available after the release has been announced.

thanks for the prompt reply. Since it's a test distro I won't worry too much.
As for the first impression it works very well, everything is smooth, the spanish keyboard set up worked fine both in vasm and in xfce setup, everything's  quite polished.

I just installed VL-7.2-STD-RC3 as a test distro. I tried slapt-update and got an error, sources not found. I checked the given url and efectively there's nothing in
so i edited the /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file and changed the source url to and run slapt-get --update and it worked fine.
I just wish to know if the source it's OK before I run a system upgrade

Glad so see you find our distro. The information on your list is a little outdated though, those specs are for version 7.0, released in 2012.

Current versions (7.2 should be finalized in a few weeks) require 256M of RAM, 5G of disk space, and a PAE capable CPU.

Of course I run VL Light on my older computers, that what it's for.  ;)

We have this list of the best Lightweight Linux distros. And we included VectorLinux in our Bonus list

Any other recommendations? Any feedback on our list? What do you use on your old hardware?

well, screwing up keyboard configuration for root might well be another effective way of  preventing users from messing up the distro. It certainly would have benn better for me that way a few times

Yeah, several things are involved in setting a user's environment, and they can conflict with each other. Advanced desktop environments like XFCE have their own keyboard selector, VL Light's IceWM does not. By default the root account is intended for limited use.

The issue is not unsolvable, with advanced tweaks you can make your root account whatever you like. At your own risk, of course.  ;)

Bug report received.
