Greetings to VectorLinux.
I am here because I want to 'upgrade' all my family & household PC's from Windows to Linux.
(I have Win 8.1 and hate it; all 10 other PC's run Win XP 32 or x64, some multi-boot)
In my previous life I used to be a HP-UX sysadmin, so the CLI is no problem for me, but that was a long time ago, and times have changed.
Currently researching my most 'safe' option to enable wife and kids to still use their PC's, but not with MS.Windows. AND I need to make the transition as painless as possible; ~ no CLI/command promt for them.
I plan to dualboot their PC's to accomodate their off-line Windows games, but all on-line actions via Linux.
So, I am trying out the VLocity 7.0.1. ~ 1st installation last night went reasonably OK, taking about 55 minutes on a clean PC. However, there are a couple of problems:
1. I cannot create a user (using the GUI), and have to do everything as root.
2. Realtek sound does not work.
Initial impression not bad; I hope to get this first installation working asap, but there will be a steep learning curve!
