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.

I load 7.1 with a usb stick and can't figure out how to copy the iso to root.  With the usb stick in, program can't find vinstall.

Also, I can't download the iso to that Dell laptop as it apparently does not have an internal wireless card and 7.1 won't light up my little external wireless card that normally works on all computers.

B2.2 32-bit

Neither my Epson nor my Brother printer is detected.  :'(

I installed Slackware-14.1 and both printers are detected and I can
print with both. Just for info.

Installed B2.2 (VL64), was able to log in (once).  System went unresponsive after about three minutes (I attempted to install Opera, got a GLIBC_2.14 error (didn't take a picture), and then couldn't do anything else.  Rebooted, selected at GRUB, and got the attached picture output.

did you install a 32bit glibc pkg?
where did you get your opera pkg?

I think the idea is if you have an existing system 7.0 or 7.1 installed,  you can copy the new iso file (ie:via usb or from download folder) to the existing  filesystem or / as root, and then either install the vinstall pkg to that system and run vinstall as discribed to install the iso in /, or if you have an iso image installed to usb via unetbootin and boot the usb, it will see both the iso on the partition and also the one on the stick (ie:if older) and you can choose which one to install.

this is handy if you have an installed system and are installing to a second partition but if you have a unit with no os or replacing existing system then direct install from cd or usb is logical.

uelsk8s: I didn't install any additional libs.  I attempted #slapt-get -i opera and ended up with the failure result.

Just to note. had an issue with login text and session menu had no text

installed mate pkgs from gslapt to test and noticed that I had text in the session menu, etc

will install B2.2 again for better conformation. not a solution perhaps but still curious

@Masta...you had a thought but did not express due to time perhaps

Expect vl7.1 64 bit will  put software for Making voice calling and txt messages possible  with 3G modem in next beta release,
thus VL7.1 64 bit users worldwide no long need to waste hard earned cash on  keep buying mobile phones.

VL7.1 should help 3G modem users worldwide to own a super mobile phone  beyond apple iphones!

There's already software for that. It's called Skype.

Proprietary Skype is garbage compared to open source Yate.  Skype is mainly for people who don't mind having their conversations monitored by the NSA.

Ugh. Couldn't figure out why the B2.4 install was not working properly. So I blew off the partition and reinstalled completely from scratch, rather than installing to root and leaving /home alone.

Let's say I'm not sure I like the new XFCE.

VL7.1-B2.4-32Bit

via dvdrw, gui install (enter), advanced, existing, lilo to partition.

kicked  cd/dvd drawer then flashing cursor, held power button to shut down.

boot, no splash (did not check box)

same issue at login, no text, documented

login/out fine, create new user

observation, adding wallpapers to /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce lists wallpapers on wallpaper chooser list and clicking loads wallpaper like the mate chooser. The default wallpaper should be in this folder.

The current plan is to stick with kernel 3.10, since it is an LTS release.

I, too, had thought this was going to be the case. Any reason why it suddenly jumped to 3.12?
