Thank you for making this preliminary version available for testing.
Allow me to write, first of all, that I am submitting this message using Vector Light 7.0!!
A couple of issues: I doubt that these are really problems, for 99% of VL users.
I cannot login as myself. I am writing this as "root". Further, my password, for root, is not recognized. My username, and passwords for both root and user, are all single characters, but when I type those characters, either as user or as root, I am informed that the wrong password has been entered. I am obliged to login as root, without a password......
This gives no problem with other versions of Linux, Debian based, including Debian itself, and PCLOS, but I suspect that with Slackware, my habit is viewed as an error. Hence, my message today is this: Please enable single digit entries, else, if that is unattractive to the developers, then, please raise an error message, signalling to the user that single characters are not tolerated by VL.
Though working as root, I am insufficiently clever to succeed in downloading and installing Opera. I receive the file, ok, but then, with other linux distros, I would right click and "extract", then, "install" the browser. Three steps (XP requires only one mouseclick). I was smart enough to fetch the compressed file, I can see it in the file manager. But then I am stuck...... Perhaps there is a link to a reference which explains to those confronted with not very user friendly interfaces, how one should proceed....
Autologin is just essential for my application. I don't know how to enable it.....I did look in VASM. Maybe I simply missed it....
Finally, again, this may not be a true "bug", but I think it may be worth mentioning.
I found the directory "VASM", which does not mean, counterintuitively, Vector Assembly Language Machinations, but rather, Vector Architect's Solitary Muse.
Well, ok, I don't know the meaning of the acronym, but I get the idea, this is supposed to be the control center, that enables one to adjust things.....
Well, tried, and failed to create myself as user, again. I entered my single letter, which I use to identify myself, and VASM reported back an error, indicating that this user name had already been specified. WEll, yes, it had been, during the installation. but, then, why does it not accept that name, when I try to login?
All in all, good job, few little quirks, but basically: ENCOURAGING.
Now, if only some kind hearted soul could instruct me, how to get the VL light 6.0 Norwegian winter landscape as desktop for my new 7.0 installation!!!
hahaha. Great. Thanks again Vector and everyone for such a good effort....
