VectorLinux 7.1 official beta (almost)
« on: September 18, 2013, 12:08:33 am »

Hi Everyone,
Well at long last we are ready to do our first public release of VL-7.1 beta. We just released on Monday build #45 of our prebeta testing iso's and it turned out pretty damn good. There are two minor glitches, we still have a desktop folder showing on the desktop of the user account for the 32 bit build not sure on 64 bit maybe someone can clarify? The cups web interface if used will throw an error saying no htmlview present this was due to a missing dependency with the cups build (xdg-utils) that is fixed now and will not be present in the official beta release. My testing shows most everything else in working order and performance is top notch with the 3.10.12 kernel (thanks to Uel for keeping up with the constant kernel releases!!) I Would like everyone to take our #45 release for a test run to see if there are any other fixes to be done before we go beta  and report back via this Vector forum topic. Thanks to all the developers who have spent so many countless hours on this release and thanks to you testers for letting us know how we are doing. You can find the #45 release iso's here:
 http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/

Looking forward to hearing from everyone and thanks in advance for testing!!


Cheers,
Vec

Just in case anyone wants to try cups for printing the fix is pretty easy open /usr/share/applications/cups.desktop in an editor and replace htmlview with xdg-open or even firefox will work.

Cheers,

Yeah, Desktop folder is showing in the 64-bit version as well. Be nice to knock that CPU bug out of the park, too. ;)

I can see the Desktop directory in the actual Desktop in 64-bit

vcpufreq still crashes from the menu.  This should either be addressed or the app removed (unless people still use this)

I am still downloading B0-45, it says for 17 hours. I assume there is water
in the providers system or is it at VL. :P

Anyhow, I installed the kernel-3.10.12 in B0-44 64bit and sound
is subdued as what I have noticed with kernels starting 3.9.up.
I have to turn the volume up a few notches for same volume as I get
with kernel-3.7 and lower.

Has anybody the same experience?

That is the case as well in other slacky distros. Whenever I change to the
new kernels volume is subdued. All volume controls are the same 100%.

I'm noticing some instability with this version. Have experienced numerous lockups and other "strangeness".  I'll keep playing with it and see if I can nail down some causes.

I installed 64-45 a couple of hours ago on my backup laptop (a lenovo N586).  The installer is beautiful.  A work of art.  I put 7.1 in / and did not format /home.  Can see all my files.  Pretty slick I say.  Pretty slick.  Lyx installed from repository.  Am now downloading texlive.  Wondering whether to go to bother to install dolphin.  I sure like that file manager but its a lot of trouble to install.  So far everything I have tried works.    Fn F6 (rather than Fn F4) turns off the keypad.

This is my first venture with 64 bit Vector.  I see two penguins on startup.  Can't think of anything else right now.  Texlive sure takes its time downloading.  Texlive prefers that it not be installed as root, but VL seems to require that it be loaded as root.  Don't suppose it matters much.

B0-45 32bit

Top and gkrellm show that kworker is continuously using up to 48% of CPU. Scary!

And congrats, Suspend and Shutdown are finally working! :D
