loaded bo 51 64 on my paralegal's ibm desktop (over vector 7.0) and it loaded fine.  She had been complaining about difficulties in getting into the gui (she uses two monitors).  I used the advanced installer as I wanted to make sure it used the old partitions.  I forgot to tell VL 7.1 to NOT format the home drive but it didn't format the home drive anyway.  Apparently that's the default.  THANKS!  Thanks again.  And thanks a third time.

She loaded the kde stuff (like me, she likes Dolphin) and everything seems to be working great.  Her plan is to keep using bo 51 until 7.1 final comes out.

Installed BO51 64-bit.

The passwords issue reported by roarde is fixed ... Thanks for reporting.
Everything else working as far as I can tell.

My setup is somewhat limited though... no sound, so none of the audio aspects were tested.

Another flawless install (B0.51 64-bit)

CPU MIA bug still there.

Mplayer and UMplayer works now.

Still surprised that Mesa drivers aren't current.

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

overthere,

you are right, it does need gnome-icon-theme-symbolic...it seem like gnome-icon-theme-symbolic is the symbolic icons from the gnome-icon-theme package...
I try evince and it look awfully ugly with the UI...I would suggest to use evince2-light with it much more polish UI

Thanks for whatever you can do. I am not an evolution fan myself, but she really likes it.

As to cups, I tried it and as she said, it won't run.  There are several older versions of cups in the repositories.  I will try them tomorrow.  And perhaps some other stuff.

Ok..the upsteam bug in xfdesktop is a known issue and will be fixed in vector eventually so the fact that I have installed that fix and it appears to be working is not worth acknowledgement. granted, appreciate the confirmation. I am not in the loop, was not ask and have no business here and will cease now.finally
look forward to try the next final release.
cheers

@overthere: Congrats on post # 1000  ;D

I'm sure the appropriate devs took note of your report and will address the issue in time. Thanks for helping out with the testing.

I tried the older cups program in the vl7.1 64 repository and that did not help. 

Even though cups shows as running in the run level 4 services, when I click on cupsservice (paraphrasing) in vasm, it says that cups is NOT running and so I say to start it and then I get the error: check your cups installation or some such.  So she still can't print except  by putting file on dropbox so someone else can print it.

Other that this, she said it ran fine today.
