Vector Linux 6.0 Light LIVE RC1 is available for testing
« on: August 22, 2009, 05:49:08 pm »

The Vector Linux team is happy to announce the release of a Live version of VL6.0-Light.

This version is intended for those who want to test before installing, or as a live toolbox for troubleshooting and/or repair. For the adventurous, you have the option to install to your hard drive, modify it to your liking, and creating your very own, personalized Live CD. Just use the icons on the desktop.

Password is "vector".

This version includes an updated kernel, as well as vlati and vlnvidia packages. These packages enable the proprietary graphics drivers to be built.

Comment and request from nightflier: Nvidia GF 5200 and 6200 cards work great. Not so sure about vlati, though. Maybe someone who have a known good ATI card could test it.

Known issues: The CDROM icon on desktop does not work correctly. After install, you have to edit /etc/fstab manually to enable proper operation of optical drive. If installing to an existing partition, make sure to format it. Otherwise, existing files may interfere with your new installation.

Your donation of your time and effort is much appreciated. Please report bugs/feedback here:

Thanks very much!

VL 6.0 SOHO latest alpha on one box, VL 5.9 Lite on the other.
