1.4 is a dud that did not build right. Please discard, but thank you for the report. :)

Lyn, RC1.3 is the most representative of a final version. That said, the whole base is getting a refresh, so it will be some days before we are ready for another test.

RC1.4 has been fixed. If you would like to help us test it, delete your old download and grab this one.  :)

perhaps directed toward Lyn but wanted to try...

No issues installing and booting to desktop with the current RC1.4 download.

nice looking and like the selection of apps so far

connection to network was simple, gslapt appears to have updated package list when selected , did not find vobcopy but not an issue


perhaps known or just here, but observed

The commercial cd's (3 random) I played are clipping per sec and a half, ..dvd movie audio appeared ok and utube music played.

cupzilla search crashed browser, using start page.com search for vector forum provided link and loaded forum...however typing a search ie "mouse tapping" in vector forum search box and clicking search crashed browser.

how would I turn off tapping on the laptop mouse? looked for synaptics in gslapt but available was already installed, previous version I installed a synaptics gui package and simply toggled tapping off. was searching for other solutions but the crashing browser got in the way. will look for firefox and try later.

Turn synaptics tap-to-click off:

cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

Add:
         Option "MaxTapTime" "0"
to the copy under /etc. Restart X -- I think just logout/login will do. Or you can issue 'synclient MaxTapTime=0' and leave the automatic part for the next reboot.

Overthere, my "you" was plural, appreciate your feedback.  ;D

I am unable to duplicate the qupzilla crash, but don't doubt it happens. The browser has limited capabilities, and still in early development. Most people will probably install the browser of their choice, whatever that is. If you launch qupzilla from a terminal, do you see any error messages when it crashes?

Another way of issuing synclient commands, is to use ~/.icewm/startup. If you look in the file you'll see examples of other uses.

Thanks nightflier..yes sorry for not including

open qupzilla in terminal and type vector linux forum in the search box and click search button and browser closes
vector:/~
someone:$ qupzilla
QupZilla: 0 extensions loaded
Illegal instruction

----------------------------------

open qupzilla in terminal and type www.startpage.com in address box and enter or select a bookmark

someone:$ qupzilla
QupZilla: 0 extensions loaded
QNetworkDiskCache::prepare() unable to open temporary file

this repeats several  times after each enter ie type vector linux forum in startpage and enter, then select forum link "QNetworkDiskCache::prepare() unable to open temporary file"

QNetworkDiskCache::prepare() unable to open temporary file

when the forum loads if you type something in the forum search box and enter the browser disappears and you get the same as the qupzilla search

Illegal instruction
vector:/~
someone:$

I do not dislike the browser, it simply is malfunctioning for me, will look for an alternate in gslapt.

overthere:
It's taking a while for me to download the new ISO due to my location, so it'll be a while before I can try it myself.

Would you mind trying
Code: [Select]
wget https://bitbucket.org/VLCore/vl71/raw/HEAD/var/vabs/VL-ISO-LIGHT/src/VL-ISO-LIGHT.SlackBuild please?

Only if it fails to download, please post output of 'ls /var/log/packages/openssl*'

Checking whether this is an SSL issue. Firefox carries its own SSL, webkit (thus qupzilla) and wget rely on the system implementation.

well unable to get a desktop - crashes without loading - no errors I can see, it may be the problematic graphics card an onboard intel i810 graphics - we have problems with this before.
