Any goodies on there for intel i915 users? Smiley
Yes, there are some.

Ok did an install directly from the iso using the vinstall-iso-ng script (im guessing the "ng" doesnt stand for new and great since i had to boot to my vl6 install to edit the fstab before it would boot Smiley )

I created a new user, logged in with that uid and did a startx, screen freeze at xfce tips and tricks, this is the last bit of the Xorg :

Stock install of 2.1 no modifications other than the above mentioned edits to /etc/fstab to make it bootable.

Thank you all for your efforts. Im a huge VL fan and look forward to either getting the dev stuff i need to make this hardware work or getting a new video card, either way, i look forward to a solid stable install of VL2 soon. Smiley

EDIT: I suppose i should mention for the sake of completeness that im booting from lilo installed on /dev/hda to a 2.1 install located on /dev/sdb5 with this lilo entry and kernel commandline:

Quote
image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38.2
root = /dev/hdb5
label = linux-beta2-1
append = "root=/dev/sdb5 ro video=640x480"

I made the above modifications you suggested so that my lilo.conf looked like:

root = /dev/hdb5
label = linux-beta2-1
append = "root=/dev/sdb5 ro nomodeset acpi=off "

and ran lilo and booted to my 2.1 installation. Logged in as root and ran startx. I typed out two of the last pertinent (i thought) lines of output from the screen and saved them to a file:

I believe it is missing from GConf. Current VL7 Beta 2 come with version 2.32.0. I try compile 2.32.1 and the file is there.

So far no problems installing, Yet it is missing the ability to Set Static ip's on installation.

One wierd problem is my Cursor? its squashed and stretched out and looks like 4 pointers, really hard to see and cant change it ive been trying.
otherwise i dont see any other problems as of yet, like the new XFCE style, and that it now supports 1680x1050, Also i think i may have chosen the wrong
at the begining to Probe X, it checked my hardware but didnt install Nvidia drivers, no problem can add those in. Will hunt down more oddities as i come across
them.

Fixed mouse problem thru Vasm by running Xwindows setup and using Auto2, or possibly disabling gpm fropm my init boots.

Known problem for me, using Vasm to setup Inets they all come up as blank configuration files when done inet2/3/4/5 ect, and attempting
to change/Set new parms to a current makes no changes at all. has to be done manually via /etc/rc.d/ .

One problem with testing new releases is if one wants to test programs not 
included in the iso one can and have them installed later with gslapt.
Comes a new release theoretically one has to install again those programs which
becomes rather time consuming.

My way around this is to make an installation on two different partitions.
Partiton 1 is kept permanently with original install and added programs. 
On partition 2 new releases are installed and then copied over to
partition one with the command "cp -au /mnt/part2/* /mnt/part1".   

This has worked fine for me. May be there is another way or somebody will   
tell that it is not acording to protocol. Who knows.

I have tried "upgradepkg -i /iso/packages/*/*.txz" from a mounted iso. That one
only partially worked.

Installed B2.1 using text installer. My previous attempts to use text installer failed and now I realise why - I didn't read the instructions! To run the text installer in VL6 you typed "linux" at the boot prompt, but that's changed to "install" in VL7 and I hadn't spotted it until recently...

A couple of things missing from the text installer compared to previous versions: the ability to check the CD for errors and the ability to choose packages. Personally I use both of these options and would be happy to see them included.

Whilst most everything worked fine, a couple of things seemd odd to me. Firstly, when I open a terminal the background is initially white and then turns black, so the terminal appears to flash every time I open it. It's especially noticable on an old P3 I use for testing. It happens on both computers I use, though the "flash" is quite fast on the P4.

The second thing is the Wicd applet. I have never used it before as I always set up the network during the install or in VASM, but I opened Wicd just out of interest. I have no wireless network. When I looked at the settings for my ethernet it showed only the host name and domain, vector.linux.net. I have static IP settings but these don't show up. Should they?

I installed a dozeon or so packages and had problems with a few. Since I can't see entries for them in the new packages section I'll list them here.

VLC - won't install, missing mesa>=7.10_84b6857e
Firestarter - installs but won't run "A proper configuration for Firestarter was not found..."
Audacity - installs but won't run "Error while opening shared library libwx_gtk2u_richtext... "

Cheers

VLC should be fixed now.  In gslapt you may need to go to Edit -> Preferences and 'Delete Cached Package files" then update, but it should work after that.

Firestarter, I have pulled that, until it can be rebuilt.

Audacity- installed and ran just fine for me, so I will need some confirmation from other testers, please. 

Thanks Andy, I'll try to fix anything that people make me aware of some please keep the repository testing coming.

Thanks Stretchedthin, I did as you suggested and tried VLC again; it installs ok now.

I checked for the libwx_gtk2u_richtext library and it's not present in the file system, though libwx_gtk2 is. Could there be a naming problem or are they different libraries?

One other package I tried last night, the latest wine in the repos, 1.3.15. It installs ok and I installed a couple of Windows apps in it too, but when I first ran wine -config it offered to download the Gecko rendering engine which I accepted, but it failed to download correctly. I'm pretty sure this used to work in VL6.

Has the NTFS external drive mounting via udisk been fixed?
Ok, so I finally fixed it by adding a 99-ntfs3g.rules file with this udev rule:
Code:
ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="ntfs", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}="ntfs-3g"

Installed RC2 today and it's working pretty nicely.  Looks good also. only problem I've had so far is that Gslapt will not download some files.  other download and install fine so I'm wondering a bit about that.

Good work gang it's looking good.

I have the same problem with Audacity (VL7 beta2). VLC is running but I haven't used it enough to know if it's running well.
