When I log in to text mode, I get the welcome messages twice. Same thing if I use "su -" (but not just "su").

Looks like /etc/profile.d/vasm.sh gets sourced by the login script, and then .bashrc?

This annoyance is caused by your ~/.bash_profile

.bash_profile sources your ~/.bashrc again, so to get rid of the annoyance, what I do is change that line in ~/.bash_profile where is sources .bashrc like this
Code:
. ~/.bashrc > /dev/null 2>&1

That way, you only get the message once.

B1.6 via vinstall-iso-ng:
On reboot gets to:
Code:
ldconfig: Renaming of /etc/ld.so.cache~ to /etc/ld.so.cache failed: No such file or directory
gtk-update-icon-cache: Failed to open file /usr/share/icons/Faenza/.icon-theme-cache: File exists
(gtk-update-icon-cache:XXXX) GdkPixbuf - WARNING **: cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache': No such file or directory
The last line repeats until I hit Ctrl-C, upon which it goes directly to text login screen without completing rest of initialization. I can run Autosetup, users, passwd etc, but the loop re-appears on next boot.

There is a directory /.hg with some junk in it. Digging down to /.hg/store/data/ I find a file referencing sbbuilder-0.4.12.2-noarch-5vl60.tlz

I got a new computer to replace my geriatric 1.3 GHz Celeron. It's a HP Debranded Sempron LE-1300 with 2 gigs RAM, NVidia nForce 430 chipset and GeForce 6150SE graphics. This is a slow CPU, single core, but considerably faster than the Celeron computer. It is also upgradable to multicore AMD processors. It is all-SATA and totally different from my old Celeron desktop. The Celeron was a very Linux-friendly computer. I was holding my breath that the new Sempron would continue that tradition. So far, so good. Video, wired network, sound worked without effort on my part.

I got the new computer because it had modern things I wanted, such as SATA support, support for huge  drives, and  PCI-e. Also, it was very inexpensive. It appears to be brand new and I think HP wanted to clear out inventory. The CPU is slow but it also runs very cool and uses little power. I wasn't looking for anything near state-of-the-art. If it proves to be too slow as I use it for a while, I'll upgrade the CPU.

I want to transfer my Linuxes from the old computer. My first attempt with tar files did not work and I didn't want to wait for ideas about how to do it, so I installed VL7 beta 1.8 from a CD I burned. It installed without issues, though I had to use 800x600 in order to have a picture that fit on the monitor screen. I was using an extremely old 1024x768 LCD monitor. However, when I first rebooted after installation so I could continue with vasm, the startup stopped at a point pretty deep into  loading. I turned off the computer and booted again. Stopped at the same point. It all happened too fast for me to get much information about where it stopped.

So I tried installing with my VL7 beta 1 CD. This went fine and the first reboot loaded VL without a stop. I always boot at runlevel 2. The open source nv driver is loading. I do have an issue of the desktop screen overflowing the monitor screen. The new computer now has its permanent monitor attached: a 19" LCD with 1280x1024 resolution. I did rerun X setup with VASM. I'm wondering if this is an NVidia problem, as VL7b1 with the same monitor and the old computer had no screen-not-fitting problems. That computer had a Radeon 9200 video card and used the open source radeon driver.

Anyway, whatever difference crept in between VL7 beta 1 and VL7 beta 1.8 gave me a severe problem. Once I get the desktop screen aligned with the monitor, things should be pretty good.

Granny......... we tried something new with beta 1.8 which is supposed to reboot your computer. Would you mind trying beta1.7 as its the same but without the new code. Trying to find out if that is source of your problem....... Huh

No luck with Beta 1.8:
On the first boot it said it had to run mkfontdir and some other stuff, upon completion of which it said that VL installation was complete and it had to reboot. Well, after it did reboot, it gets to the same place and reboots again. And then just keeps rebooting whenever it gets there.

Is your locale set correctly (affects fonts)

How is Utf-8 /unicode  utilized

I would, except that I'm no longer having the problem. When I couldn't get the right aspect ratio for the screen, I decided to install beta 1.8 to another partition to see if I could get the correct ratio there--and also to see if the reboot problem repeated on a new installation. When I originally installed VL7b1 and 1.8 on my new computer, it was attached to a 15" LCD monitor. I wondered if I'd have the same problem if I installed with the computer attached to the correct monitor (19", 1280x1024). This time when I did the first reboot in beta 1.8, it got to a login prompt. I've done a few reboots, warm and cold, and the hang hasn't repeated.

I still have the aspect ratio problem. It should be 5:4 but it looks like 4:5. Things are distorted so that the screen is too long and disappears at the bottom of the monitor. I didn't use the monitor buttons to resize the screen because doing that messes things up for other OSes or VL versions. I found that running vxconf set nouveau as the driver. I think that's the "improved" open source NVidia driver. Actually, when I used that one, I got a screen of garbage. The nv driver messes up the aspect ratio for the 1280x1024 resolution. I discovered that the vesa driver does okay at 1024x768. I haven't tried nv or nouveau at 1024x768. I haven't tried the proprietary NVidia driver, preferring to wait until it's included in VL7. I'll use 1024x768 until there's a solution for the 1280x1024 aspect ratio.

My old computer with an ATI Radeon 9200 card had no problems displaying 1280x1024 correctly, so my guess is that this is somehow related to NVidia.

Other than the aspect ratio, the things I've tried so far in beta 1.8 have worked fine.

W/due regard to this topic as to report beta results, that ignores why any may be  reported

This "aspect ratio" appears to be a common complaint
As far as can be readily noted, it's directly related to ability of any driver  DMA being adequately  probed,
then  applying  found parameters

Varied utilities may assist, (xrandr,  xvidtune etc)
While all above is known to users experiencing such problems, how to aleviate is their  question

ATI catalyst doesn't support Linux running older cards~  often requiring  generic drivers (ati, vesa)
Generic "nv" may not render virtual sizing correctly
Nouveau seems an improvement to nv

Opensource released proprietary drivers are still best (unless strict observations to Gnu.org  Re FOSS is desired) 

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=562255

Example - View above, download bug file, note  results

How any user wishes to apply data is a personal choice:

There is no right vs wrong, all boils down to matter of least inconvenience  desired vs desire
to accept status quo or keep the faith in any developers' capability

Until feb 2011 beta, I have repeatedly found this line
|-----handy-ruler------------------------------------------------------|

(After DESCRIPTION: and Before the Real description)

I believe that a 'quality packager' have to 'polish up with care' files before up-link (to avoid appear not nedded lines like this 12^ as inside [old link] http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/packages/a/consolekit-0.4.3-i586-1vl70.meta).

(For instance inside:

atkmm, autoconf,
cairomm, consolekit, cython
dbus, dbus-glib,
epydoc,
perl, pstoedit, python-lxml,
vala,

PACKAGE NAME:  directfb-1.4.3-i586-2vl60.txz
directfb|-----handy-ruler------------------------------------------------------|
directfb: Packager: vl60@vector.Linux.vnet on 27-Apr-2010

hyphen,
libcanberra, libcfg+, libdc1394, libffi, libgee, libgexiv2, liblastfm
and so on...)

@ nightflier
I'm not requested 'What' ruler is, but (if you 'want talk') 'Why' nobody see and erased all this (duplicated, no more needed) rulers before 'yesterday nite' beta!

Vink

How that packages list is generated may be automated
What quality assurance checks are run is unknown_

Maintainers do best ,  mistakes  Shocked "will"  happen,  all Vectorites are encouraged to participate
w/this effort (*BIG job)  to prepare V6 Pkgs to V7 (Pls note how rapidly   beta versions are uploaded)
This is ALL part & parcel of  polishing any version prior to release class announcements

 If you believe present procedures are flawed:
VL community would welcome any  script supplied  to check data-base for errors

E.G.: Naming conventions  of Pkgs, version corectness etal

Please NOTE:    There ARE  guides posted to use of sbbuilder

Since I have often  expressed  Embarrassed   opinions Re what may seem preferable option to solve  temporary VL glitches
(using VL default utilities vs CLI methods)

It seems only fair to point out, critiquing sans offering alternatives is not helpful to any

However, as all are  personal viewpoints, the final arbiter is acceptance or rejection by peers

Best wishes
