VL 7.1 64 bit BETA test results
« on: August 27, 2013, 12:06:00 pm »

Don't know where to post this as it appears I can't post a new topic under "Distro Releases."

I installed VL64-7.1-STD-B0.42.iso for testing on two 5 to 7 year old early dual core AMD boxes --

1. Gateway GT-5228 AMD 64x2 3800+ (2g ram 500g disk)
2. Dell E521 AMD 64x2 4200+ (2g ram 160g disk)

Results -- installed using Text Installer as the GUI didn't recognize the video mode on my Dell 20" lcd monitor. Outside of that everything seems to work fine so far (after 1 day of use). I'll test for a few more days and post if I discover any problems. If I don't post, all works fine.

Thanks.

The name is a little misleading, only mentioning B20, but it would fit in to the discussion here:
