GUI on VL 7 Gold Live fails to load
« on: August 10, 2012, 07:36:53 am »

Hi all  :)

I'm new here.  I have been trying few of the linux distros, such as ubuntu, mint and opensuse but just couldn't get to like them much for one reason or the other.  I decided to give vectorlinux a try.  Downloaded the live cd iso and created a bootable usb using unetbootin....it boots fine starts loading up things, but at the end it says it fails to load the GUI because I dont have KDM, GDM etc...

The live CD is supposed to have it working by itself...am I doing anything wrong here?



Regards

I've never tried installing from USB.  Any reason you don't burn the iso to a CD and install from it?
