Well... I have the video issue resolved (thread in Installation) thanks to Stretch. I've also updated flash but when I try to post to this forum, it just tells me "Waiting for vectorlinux.com". If I let it, it will still be there 1 1/2 hour later!
Tested to see if I could post on LinuxQuestions.org and got the following alert
Could not initialize the browser's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your browser's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the browser and fix the problem. If you continue to use this browser session, you might see incorrect browser behaviour when accessing security features
When clicked OK on that message, it posted!
I remembered my /usr partition is almost full:
cleo:$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 4.0G 329M 3.7G 9% /
/dev/hda3 4.0G 957M 3.0G 24% /home
/dev/hda4 4.4G 4.1G 251M 95% /usr
tmpfs 186M 0 186M 0% /dev/shm
shm 186M 0 186M 0% /dev/shm
Will boot 5.9 Live and attempt to adjust sizes.
