Just tried B0.50 in a 64-bit qemu virtual machine.
Installation went flawless using automatic mode.  I was unable to reproduce the user+passwords issue reported by roarde.
I did run into the same problem with midori as reported, so the package has been fixed and updated to the latest available version.  Build log here: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/buildbot/builders/midori/builds/20

One minor little detail is that the 64-bit 7.1 ISO when booted, the message says "7.0".

Other than that, looks good to me, but bare in mind that my setup has no sound or real hardware for that matter, but on a VM it is nearly perfect.

Installed B0.50 (64-bit) yesterday. Flawless install.

CPU bug still present where CPU0 is MIA on boot.

Gnome mplayer doesn't work (never use it anyway).

UMplayer also doesn't work (never use it, either).

Exaile works very well.

bo50 32bit

Reinstalled selecting advanced and edited partitions then installed to first of two created partitions

equally easy install with logins/outs ok. attempted to use wrong passwords, root password for user, etc. but got the typical error for incorrect password.

@retired1af

update gslapt and then add libvdpau then try gmplayer..I was able to play dvd, avi and mp4 media samples with sound/full screen and actually works better than bo49.

Installed B0.50 in a 32-bit Virtual Machine.  The passwords issue is confirmed, and will be fixed on the next test ISO.

I have to say, that while I like the fact that whiskermenu is included by default, I hate the way the default desktop is configured.  I think we should be shipping a desktop as configured in the 64-bit edition accross the board, but use whiskermenu accross the board too.  Also, the bootsplash screens are way too different for a distro that's shipping both architectures... I would like to see more similarities in the end result for both architectures.

BO50 32 bit

added xfdesktop 4.10.2 and can now change to solid color, horizontal, vertical gradient background. turn on and off icons or switch to single image wallpaper. when chose list can add images to list which appear at random when item selected . not sure this is correct but better function than with the included 4.10.1 thus far.


The okular pdf reader may be a worth consideration as add on for the repository as it also reads ebooks and comics etc in addition to pdf. just a thought

Just to be clear, I added gnome-icon-theme-symbolic.

gnome icon theme had no effect so I removed and added gnome-icon-theme-symbolic and got icons

will remove evince and gnome-icon-theme-symbolic and try evince2-light v2? when available

bo50 32bit

so far no issues with xfdesktop 4.10.2 although I was changing the brightness and saturation of the vertical gradient color and rendered my single image wallpaper black and white until I realized that was the cause.
