The Sources in the gslapt package manager for http://na.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/vectorlinux/veclinux-7.0/ are not correct.

How so?
The link above is the correct one. I changed the wrong one with it and do not remember what was the default one.

defaults are as follows
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/packages/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/patches/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/extra/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/testing/

enabling testing will give you access to the most packages as all new apps are going there first, but may or may not be buggy.

By default, I mean that the default source for mirror.garr.it after the installation of VL 7.0 in the gslapt package manager is not correct.
For example this source ftp://rmrm.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/vectorlinux/veclinux-7.0/packages/ is not correct.

i just try install VL7B2.1 with the minimum installation option and I cannot login to my user account saying login incorrect. I can log in as root but when i want to use VASM to change my root and user password, it say change password FAILED. Do anyone have this problem?

EDIT: I can change the password using passwd but not VASM thou. Thanks to uelsk8s's advise...

EDIT: Install expect solve the VASM change password problem but now I cannot log on to super VASM in my user account, VASM just hang. Uninstall expect will give me a wrong root password error.

I have tested all the sources in slapt-getrc for VL 6.0 to find out whether they are still present or no longer available and these are the results:

Monfen,
I appreciate your effort on this.
how did you test each source?
I am surprised to see so many mirrors not working.
I did a quick test of ibiblio and found this: http://distro.ibiblio.org/vectorlinux/veclinux-7.0/

I tried to get my Canon Pixma MP160 scanner working after installing the Canon scangear driver (two files converted from rpm). No luck. The scanner was working in VL6 Standard Deluxe a couple of years ago and I don't think I ever got around to installing it in newer VLs when it was attached to my now-older desktop (Athlon 64 X2). Now I'm trying to get it working on my VL7 b2.1 on the Sempron computer.

Scangear starts and I've even gotten a preview (once in a while :-(  ) But when it tries to scan, it reaches a certain percentage on the progress bar and then just stops. After 20 minutes I give up and use ps -e to end the process. I start it from a terminal prompt but there are no informative messages at all to give me a hint of what's wrong. The highest percentage of completion it has ever reached is 28%. When it actually does start a scan, it usually stops at 17 or 18%, but it has also stopped at 3%. There is plenty of free space on the hard drive.

I googled but couldn't find anything. Most of the hits were several years old (2007 or 2008) and none of the ones I checked described this problem. The printer works fine (though with very limited options).

VueScan supports this scanner and I may decide to buy it. I'd like to avoid that, if possible. I don't use this scanner for anything but quick and dirty.

I tested each source via Firefox. I have added to the post that these are the sources for VL 6.0, updated sources for VL 7.0 will be available soon.
It is good someone else to check the availability of the sources, too, for sure.

Update on the Pixma MP160 scanner--

I did a lot of googling on the problems I was having and concluded that it's a lost cause. xsane won't write the file (working as root doesn't help), scangearmp can't complete a scan or even a preview. Google revealed that these errors are widespread and there is no obvious solution.

The good news is that VueScan didn't have a bit of trouble producing excellent scans. There's just one file to run and no actual installation to do. I downloaded the trial version and was very impressed with the ease of use and quality of scans. So I decided it was worth $40 US to have something that worked. The alternative was to buy a new all-in-one with better Linux support. VueScan was cheaper than that.

Now I have to determine if I can tolerate the CUPS printer driver for the Canon Pixma MP160. It produces okay prints but has very few options (color only, 600x600 dpi only--the printer can actually do quite a bit more than that). TurboPrint has what's supposed to be a better printer driver but at about $40 US I don't know if it's worth it to me.

I have tested the sources in /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc for VL 7.0 to find out whether they are still present or no longer available and these are the results:

Just notice missing lapack-3.3.0 as dependencies for numpy and inkscape...
lapack is not found in the VL7 testing repo...

I downloaded and installed Vector 7.0 beta 2 yesterday and unfortunately found two problems;

1 / The X11 keyboard maps seem to be missing, so I can't load the UK keyboard map; the only one available is the US map, so " and @ are transposed in X Windows on my machine.

2 / I had a preexisting installation of 6.0 KDE Classic on my machine. The automatic install of LILO evidently misread my Vector 6.0 KDE Classic boot folder, so I got a "kernel panic" when I tried to boot VL KDE Classic from the LILO boot menu.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news and all that but you did ask for problems! Also, a couple of apps I've come to rely on in Vector are apparently no longer present; Chestnut Dialer for PPP dialup, and K3B for burning data and ISOs to CD and DVD. Is this intentional?

Regards,

Colonel Panic .
