Let us hope, no let us pray, that Argentina upholds the dignity of this hemisphere tomorrow.  This side of the world is badly in need of some soccer respect.

 Hi Jabar.. I have (somewhere) a toshiba 4070cds with 192 megs ram, I recall it does 640x480 and 800x600 at a lower bit rate, and better if you use an external monitor rather than the lcd. Yours may be similar, I think the cdt had a higher res so perhaps yours is 800 and 1024 thus the black boarder, it's at 800.

Anyway try a monitor if you have one or lower the bit rate on the higher res or perhaps use vesa rather than xorg, not sure how you make that selection with vector anymore but someone will likely help.

I used puppy linux as it is designed to run on as little as 128 megs and runs in ram so my 4 gig hd could be used as a save file and swap file. even with puppy I had to tweak the vid setting to work at the higher res.. damnsmall was also used on this but one or the other would not allow use of my pcmcia backpak cd burner.. eventually hotmail would no longer work on the resolution so I upgraded to vector on a desktop with more ram, and better graphics..

The whole screen went corrupt it was almost full screen but i could not read anything just multi color lines everywhere ,that was after i rebooted.

In a root terminal, run command "vxconf" and follow the prompts. When it's done, reboot and try again.

DistroWatch went down because of an issue with its domain register. This would not be the first, nor last, time an important site went down because of a such a problem. The website's last update, a listing for the new version of Scientific Linux, was posted on July 4.

Welcome Jabaruk1

I still use foxpro2.6 dos on vector 7.0 (dosemu).  I've been going to update that for about 20 years. 

Too bad about the windows thing.

Hi, my nick online for many years has been Jabar i say it as J Bar and no i am not related to Jabber the hut Smiley. I have been using computers since 1980 when i got my first computer a ZX80 followed by ZX81,CBM64,CBM16,BBC Micro then i stuck with my CBM Amiga for many many years (the best machine i ever had) in fact i still have a A500 in the attic boxed as new along with a TI99/4A a oric 1 and many other classic computers.I have over the years used many OS's from CPM,QNX,AmigaOS,BEOS,BSD etc etc and still tinker when i get time,i also tinker with my Arduino and Raspberry PI.
I have been using Windows as my main OS since 1998 (job requires it) and gaming of course.I have had a Tux box for about 3 years nothing special i use it for network testing with Kali now and back track before that.i have installed most popular linux distro's where my limited knowledge would let me but often have to give up or loose my hair trying.That is why i am here to learn.
