What version of VL 7.0 you are using?
32 or 64bit?

Please do "Update" in GSlapt and try again.

If that fails, post the output of the command:
Code: [Select]
grep ^SOURCE\= /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
Firefox 27.0.1 in the testing repo requires libpng >= 1.4.8, which was already installed here and is available as libpng-1.4.8 in the repos.

NOTHING in the 7.0 repos requires libpng 1.4.11, and the only "1.4.11" that's a package requirement is "gnupg >= 1.4.11", which is needed by playonlinux and gpgme. Gnupg 1.4.11 (and for that matter gnupg 1.4.13) is available in the repo.

All I know is that I accessed the testing repo (using GSlapt), tried to install Firefox 27.0.1, and the following window popped up:

I just recently discovered why I was having rouble installing the software I ws complaining about not being able to install - I happened to notice that what I was rying to install was for VL64, instead of Vector Linux 7.0 (32bit) which is what I have, so it seems to me that when I went to check out the testing repository via GSlapt, it updated using the 64-bit repository instead of the 32-bit repository  >:(, but I think I now have the situation corrected (at least as far as my own computer is concerned).
