Hello All!
I have always been very impressed of Slackware. Many years ago i used Slackware and found it to bee keen to old computers.
Some how I found, I believe it was on the official forum of Slackware, i.e. LQ, a reference to Vector Linux. I gave it a first test by running the VL 7.0 gold live, and it impressed, so then I installed the VL SOHO 7 on my old Dell Latitude D-600 from 2003. I must say it runs smoother than windows 2000 did at those days... Smiley Most Impressive! -But I am still a little concerned about accessing my USB-external, hard disks (NTFS file systems), which worked well with VL 7.0 live, and in Slackware, but not in VL7.0 SHO.

I guess that will be sorted out in the future. My preferred key map, sv-latin1, was even not possible with the graphical installer Huh, I solved it by adding it to /etc/profile.
I'll might participate on IRC in the future. I have big hopes for VL.

Howdy and welcome. I ran into something you describe but in my Semplice Linux install. I fixed it by copying over a working /etc/fstab over to Semplice /etc/fstab.

which worked well with VL 7.0 live

Maybe just copy over the working one to your install. But I am guessing here in case we are talking about udev instead.
I am not sure if you are talking about hot plugging in external drive or have it being already plugged in before booting up.

I also made manual entries for folders in /media as sda1, sdb2,sdd1. Just whatever I needed for external drive names in /media.

Happy Trails, Rok
