I just loaded 64 B2, using the automatic option. I hope to try hata_ph's sflphone tomorrow after I reload VL 7.1 as an "expert.".  Nonetheless, I report that 64 B2 automatic loaded fine on my Lenovo N586.  The graphics are excellent.

Some additional information is needed to assist in deciding whether to choose automatic or expert load options.  For example, the user should be told that on selecting the automatic option his drive will be formatted into one partition, plus a swap partition and that if he wants both a root and a  /home partition he needs to select the expert option.

And don't forget to change 7.0 to 7.1 on the initial screen before 7.1 goes beta.

And keep up the good work!

It is possible to run the new installer from a running system.
you can get the pkg here http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86/vinstall-0.1-i586-1vl71.txz
it should work on 7.0 or 7.1 x86 or x86_64
you need to have an iso in / or in the root of any partition or in the cdrom.
you can start it with "vsuper vinstall" as a reg user or "vinstall urwid" from a root terminal, I would like you  to try both.
Let us know how it goes.

This is weird. Ran into the same issue I ran into with B1.1.

Slapped the B1 CD into the drive and it detected B2 iso on /dev/sda. Started the install (format root, leave home intact) and let the install fly.

Upon reboot, only B2 is visible on the grub menu as if the grub OS prober didn't detect the other partitions or operating systems. Once logged in, I'm able to manually update grub and it works fine after that.

Now, when you select the disable boot animation during install, what exactly is that supposed to disable? Because I'm still getting animated graphics during boot.

Testing on 7.1 B2 64bit, if install without XFCE in advance mode, cups complaint missing libavahi-common.so.3. Install avahi via gslapt solve the problem.

Had B1.iso in downloads folder of first partition, as root, copied to file system.

installed linked pkg via right click install pkg

Opened terminal and typed vsuper vinstall.

checked xfce and included splash

Smooth advanced install to third partition, boots as expected.

Then installed B2 via usb to partition 3, the option for B1 was available, I chose B2 for again smooth install.

chose lilo to sda3 and booted partition via boot manager.

Installed VL7.1 B2 32 bit via usb (using unetbootin on B1.1) smooth install

love the wallpaper, may discard my V7, sorry I skipped the boot splash on this one

have an issue with the login screen though where if I click session or action all I see are underscores and a red x for cancel. If I click language I see choices and if I  cancel then click either session or action all is clear and I can make choices. this happens with each logout/in. guessing my vid card but thought worth mention.

You should not see the red X unless you are logging in another user, while a user is currently logged in. If this is the case, then you're running low on a resource somewhere. An idea to check this I think would be to ctrl+F2 , log in, run htop. Go back to F7 and then trying loggin in another user. When the issues start showing up, go back to F2 (while still keeping the new login running) and see what's hapenning there. Let me know. Thanks.

I agree with the xpdf replacement :)

B2 32 bit

The red X are on the cancel buttons of session, language and action. if I click session all I see is a list of underscores and the X on the cancel button. If I click language I can see the text for them and the cancel on the cancel button. if I click it and then click session or action I can then see the list..fluxbox..etc. it is a consistant text issue. it did not happen with the previous login screen.

just an observation, the 1920x1080 wallpapers do not scale well on 1280x1024 perhaps 1920x1200 or larger would look more like expected. not an issue just observation.

you will need to update urwid: "slapt-get -i urwid"
is this on 7.0 or 7.1?

Oh those red X's :-) . OK got the picture now, thanks.  It seems like there may be a font selection issue in the configuration. I'm on it...

I notice some app are missing comments at the start menu...so I have update the desktop files for below packages to make it look more polish :)
all should be available at the 7.1 untested repo...feel free to test out the new builds

Quote
gkrellm-2.3.5
tuxcards-2.2.1
pysol-2.0
leafpad-0.8.18.1
epdfview-0.1.8

PS: same problem to vcpufreq so maybe the devs should update the desktop files as well...

BTW, when u look at the screenshot, you will notice there is a black line at the xfce panel. Reduce the panel row size to 23px instead of 30px (default) will remove the line. It seem it only happen to elementary-VL theme...it seem also only happen on 32bit only

I feel the xfce4-timer and weather plugins should be stock options. that would add 3530k but improve default customizability

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/Stock%20options.png

I like this wallpaper but changed to 1920x1200 from x1080 to get the essence at 1280x1024>

my default quick fix

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/B2Default1.png

Added package manager and leafpad to favorites list

Replaced root folder with media player next to volume on the upper panel giving volume control more purpose in that location.

Moved the wifi indicator to the std location

Changed the menu icon

Reduced lower panel row size to 23 as mentioned by hata_ph
