Made another install with vinstall-iso-ng.

This time I did no vasm configs in X like adding a user  or changing root
password. Instead I stayed in root console and did vasm there. So far so
good survived 3 (now 4) reboots and logins as user. Internet, sound card working
as well as mouse and KB.

1: old text installer is missing some finishing touches, try booting into TUI, running depmod -a, then reboot to GUI

Tried that, on 64 bit B0.17 in a vm. No improvement.

Installed B0.19 (64-bit)

Flawless install.

Still running into the issue where dhcpcd.conf isn't being written.

Mixer still crashing when trying to adjust volume with mouse wheel.

No suitable plugins found error still with Exaile. (.m4a and .mp3 files)

Will put this one through its paces later today.

Edit -- Almost forgot. During the install process, GRUB isn't picking up all the OSs on the system. It tends to ignore the SOHO installation which resides on /dev/sdb1. Running grub-mkconfig picks it up, but it SHOULD detect it during install. Happened on B0.18 as well.

B0-19

It is now very clear that the problems I get is due to alsaconf in vasm-legacy while in X.

Installation and first boot smooth. Internet connected and sound card found.
Mouse working in console.

Startx opens Xfce4. All working correctly.

Opening vasm-lagacy, trying to start alsa sound vasm-legacy crashes.

After that mouse can be moved, however, not clicked.
Get out to console with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.

Reboot

No mouse in console, no Internet connection, no soundcard found.
Starting X no mouse/keyboard.

I can only solve it by reinstalling and not touching vasm-legacy-alsaconf while in X.

BTW audio CD does now play with umplayer and gnome-mplayer.

Mixer still crashing when trying to adjust volume with mouse wheel.

I tracked this down to this: xfce4 -mixer crashes if you dont run the configuration tool (right click, properties) and pick your soundcard, etc.
Even if it looks like the default settings are alright you need to get to the dropdown and select a card.
There is some talk at the xfce4 mailing list about some patches for this issue, I will stay alert.
Let me know if doing this dance fixes it for you or you are facing a different bug.

I can confirm this. I was recently building my own xfce-4.10 packages (I build all the libs and apps as separate ones) and then started to use them. I thought: dang... xfce4-micer still crashes!!! Then I realized that after configuring it, no more crashes... ;D

PS: FWIW, they should probably program in a call to the config window on first run...

VL64-7.1-STD-B0.37. installer bugs
« Reply #37 on: July 01, 2013, 07:58:12 am »

there's other bugs for VL64-7.1-STD-B0.37 installer as well.
installer can't distinguish samsung syncmaster  920nw lcd well,which should be working at 1440x900 resolution  in standard...when installing with sync master series of lcd, installer keeps flashing,thenshut off,have to press  switch on  every 2 minutes.....even chosing auto install,
once booting into
vl64  7.1 037 ,it can't  load graphic driver for  intel G41   chipsets, then xvconf  can only configure it work as vesa, still samsung syncmaster 920nw  can't be able to work at standard 1440x900.... which s old bugs for xorg, addressed many times since 2010 but still didn't put fix in xorg yet...mandriva does have good support to syncmaster lcd./

B0-37 32bit

Burned DVD. Tried to install from with GUI. It does not go Forward when a partition is
assigened as root no matter if set to format or not.to format

Tried TUI installer. Same after assigning a partition as root and clicking on Next
it jumps out to console as root.

Tried good old Setup and it will not find the CD.

Might try vinstall-iso-ng tomorrow.

B0-38 32bit

I now copied /packages from the iso to VL7.1-38 box and run upgradepkg
./packages/*/*.txz. It showed some packages were not installed, therefore,
coud not be upgraded. Cancelled it and run instead installpkg.

Rebooted. This time no error messages, however, it did not go into init 4.
See below Error.

Started xfce4. It opened, however, the language beside the icons looks
like a pile-up of sanscrit, uintelligent.

echo $LANG gives enUS

No program could be opened not even xterm.

Tried to start fluxbox, failed since setting in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.kde
instead of xinitrc.fluxbox.

Changed it and coud open fluxbox. Could open a terminal. Commands
opened some progams like exaile or abiword.
Firefox failed:$ firefox

So for sure the GUI Installer did not load all packages even given to FULL.

Question:

How do I change the language characters in Xfce4 to English?
