On both machines, 32-bit had no volume control on panel. The entry for adding it is grayed out.

The entry for notification area and volume are gray out because they are already implemented and can only have one instance. the volume is on the auto hidden upper panel.

The dual install option from optical disc was also present in 32 bit for me as posted.

Some work on fluxbox for user VL7.1 B3 32

https://www.dropbox.com/s/k0ydbv36e6ujkfn/fluxfix.png

Already posted thunar icon fix and menu

have stock VL7.1 wmdrawerrc, can post if anyones interested

to get devices and trash in thunar added following to .fluxbox/startup:

# Start DBUS session bus
if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ]; then
   eval `/usr/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`
fi

currently using "Meta" from fluxbox menu/system styles

thunar seems to work for user but likely needs additional work as root

Hi everybody.  Can someone direct me to the latest beta, or is it the one at the start of this thread?   ???   I have been away testing other distros.  I just tried the latest Salix, and while good, it sucks compared to Vector in my humble opinion.  One thing I did learn over at there site was that they use Duck Duck Go as their default search engine.  Every time someone does a search, they get a small amount of revenue, kind of like Google.  I prefer Duck Duck Go as it doesn't track you like Google does.  Just a thought.

Thanks-

B3.8 32 and 64-bit.

 :)  Installed from USB stick on 4 computers so far, without any problems. One machine gave me some problems after install and messing around in that the grub selector screen would not respond to USB keyboard, but did fine with PS/2. This was not the case with two other boxes with usb kb, so I'll go back and look.

 :(  On a laptop where wifi worked with module wl in previous version, now I get a problem, both versions. Module wl will not load because "unspecified license taints kernel". I remember this issue with the drivers for a usb wifi stick a while back. I had to change the code to refer to GPL, and then it worked.

Well, my suggestions are worth nil, perhaps one of the new bloods will have an impact.
cheers

I personally detest Firefox.  It seems to hang on a regular basis.  How about Midori, like Salix uses.  I would also vote for Seamonkey as it seems faster and more reliable than FF.  Just my opinion.

Midori, Seamonkey, Opera and Netsurf are all available in the repository.  BTW, I also can't stand the Firefox upgrade treadmill.  I wish the LTS version was offered instead the way the various enterprise distros do.

Firefox ESR is available in Salix and is the default in Mageia.  I like it better than the latest version because it seems faster and doesn't freeze. :)
