The Vector Linux team would like to invite everyone to test VL6.0 KDE-Classic-Live Beta 1.

This release retains the solid KDE 3.5.10, but has has many updates compared to the original, install only release. Further upgrades to the most recent Firefox and Flash plugin are planned for the final version. The Live-installer has been improved. Live mode makes it simple to test compatibility with your hardware before committing to a permanent installation.

To make it fit on a single CD, we had to trim the package selection. Presently, koffice, kdegames, kdeaccessibility, kdedevelop and VLC media player are not included. It looks like there will be room to put something back in, and we would like to get your opinions on that subject.

Unlike VL Light Live, the Live-tools will not be available after install. Those who want to re-master their own version will need to install that package afterwards.

Great, will set it to download tonight. BTW, vlc has my vote to return if at all possible. I really can't live without it... Grin

Downloading it now. I was hoping that a live version would be released. The live CDs make it easier to demonstrate VL to others on the go. Of course I always be sure to stress that an installed version of VL will be much faster. Thanks! I will post bugs if I see any.

KDE4 will be included with SOHO. I've been playing with it for a month, and while I've gotten pretty good at modifying things to my liking, I'm not overly impressed with it.

vlc has my vote to return

One of my must-haves as well.  Smiley
After some more tweaking, vlc is back in. So is kdeaccessibility.
Removed kdetoys and kdebindings.
That leaves about 25 MB. Room for something like kdegames and kdeadmin. Or maybe wine?
