Why is "at" not anymore included in the services of VectorLinux? One has to copy it first from /etc/rc.d/init.d/sample to ../init.d. Then run services. Is it that no one is using "at" anymore? I use it all the time. It's fast and easy. Other distros have it still as a standard.


I think you and I might be the only two people in the world that still use atd Wink Ok j/k, but it is surprising that no one else in VL has noticed and commented on this. I've taken the liberty to lodge a ticket on the issue tracker for this. https://bitbucket.org/VLCore/vl70/issue/5/package-at-should-have-init-script

Has anyone else had the problem of no VL-themed backgrounds when logged in?

All of my users desktops are showing the XFCE mouse for the background. It has been like this since the first time I logged in after installation.

I noticed the default xfce background on one machine when running Live. I tested it with another live xfce distro and same thing. Machine is an older Celeron 2.7 GHz, 1G RAM and a Radeon 9250 AGP video card.

This is from a full Gold installation, not from a Live disc.

I guess one thing in common here is ATI. This box has an onboard ATI 3300HD card.



===EDIT===
Just remembered I'm on a dual monitor system, using the default open source ATI drivers. This causes the display to be cloned to both monitors. In XFCE wallpaper manager I notice that it has the correct VL themed walpaper set for Monitor1, but Monitor2 has the XFCE-stripes wallpaper set (mouse image with horizontal stripes.). I think my problem might be that XFCE is putting Monitor2's wallpaper on both monitors.

And the problem with the GUI installer in VL7 for not being able to enter
user name and password I think I have already reported it last year and
possibly more than once. That the root password now does not
register and being a blank is a new twist.


I had absolutely no issue in creating the root password or users with the GUI install.

Well it seems I am not alone with this problem. To avoid that the GUI installation aborts
when asked for user and its password is to skip it
and enter it later with vasm. I learned that quite some time ago during previous testings.
However, a newbie will not know that.

As user klicking at xfce4-panel to quit there is no logout dialog, instead it goes
straight to the log-in screen.

Weird. I'm running an ancient ATI x1250 on this notebook and I get that beautiful VL 7 background.

Pita, will build mailx and sendmail for VL7...pls help to test it soon Smiley

Thanks! Found now mailx and waiting for sendmail.

On this line the following oldies seem not to be in the repos as well:
joe, xv, xpaint. Joe has always been my major editor, xv and xpaint my gimps.
All a fast and easy to use.

Come to think of it, I thought I had them installed in  VL7-Light-Live.
Can't check it now since I overwrote it with the GOLD. May be I pinched
them from somewhere else.

Now running vl7gold with kernel 3.1.4 on sharp mebius laptop, but due to the IC design flaw of savage(twister K) IGP chips(R&D contracted to taiwanese and evil red china slave factory in shenzhen-canton after SARS pendenmic,etc...a kind of gift contract awarded to evil red cina but they still cheated all endusers for that line of products),
details about Graphic chip:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8636A [ProSavage KN133] AGP4X VGA Controller (TwisterK) (rev 01)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

occasionally keyboard  and mouse touch pad goes to dummy , so i 've got to edit /etc/lilo.conf

-------------------------------
append="idle=pool"
append="maxcpus=1"
-------------------------------
thus make system  work longer and stable

Installed sendmail, testing it I get the following error:

 /usr/sbin/sendmail: Exec format error

. . . message not sent.

ls -l /usr/sbin/sendmail

Pita,

thanks for testing sendmail but it would be more appropriate to post your sendmail error in the sendmail pkg own thread

Looks like a job for gPhoto.
You should be able to find that in the repo.  Look for gphoto2
