Actually,..things are about the same for me. VL 6.0 works on most everything just fine. It's most likely my dinky little dialup service that isn't playing nice with VL (and/or the Chestnut-dialer). Seems the only thing I CAN'T do with VL 6.0, is to get on Ebay (which I can with any other distro). That kind-of keeps me busy trying to find a solution that works. Otherwise,....not any more problems at all (runs smooth as silk). Not able to be at my computer very much right now, though (just mainly on the weekends).....so Vector is sooooooo nice to have and use.
EDIT: Oh shoot! Just solved part of my problem,...so there goes the fun of "tinkering". I replaced my own dialups DNS and put in the OpenDNS. Now I get Ebay. Couldn"t get addons for Firefox (from the Mozilla site) before. Now I can. Ah well,...maybe I can amuse myself with changing wallpapers and Conky.
