Tried to load /veclinux-7.2/iso/VL64-7.2-STD-A0.3.iso on an EEE PC and got the following error:


the kernal requires X86 64 CPU but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot. Please use a kernal appropriate for your CPU. Edubuntu 4.04 loaded OK on same machine but is unacceptably slow.

Really impressed with how far along this is for an Alpha Build.

Other than
1. vasm-legacy fails when launched as normal user and then trying to go to super from within the program. (Launches fine when started as root)

2. Root terminal needs it's .desktop file re-written. If you check it in /usr/share/applications/gksu.desktop
 It's trying to launch a terminal we do not have.

Had some weird screen behavior, but not sure of the cause of that yet.  A window of one program will become unreadable but toggle to another program and it's fine.

Can you tell us about your video hardware?  What does 'lspci |grep -i vga' say?

OK, but "sledgehammer" is taken on bitbucket..  Pretty strange.  I tried to reset password but no luck.  Said it sent me an email with instructions but I didn't receive it as john@lawquest.com.

sledgehammer:

I visited "sledgehammer"'s account on bitbucket. If you recall creating the account about two years ago and can remember creating the repo "my-play-ground" as a test, then maybe you can try checking some other old email addresses of yours. If not, someone else has it. Pity the name is unavailable and the user isn't doing anything with the account.

It is helpful to have Bitbucket user names match forum names when they can, but not necessary. Create an account with a different name. In your first several posts, sign "sledgehammer" or "John" at the bottom of the post itself. People tracking the bug posts will learn quickly to recognize your Bitbucket username as being you.

Thanks for your reports so far, and for helping to make them even easier to follow.

Trying to load lyx on this little eee machine. Installed  libsigsegv-2.10-i486-1_SBo.tgz and texi2html-5.0-i486-1_SBo.tgz from slackbuiilds. Couple of library problems but they compiled. I am getting no killer errors. But texlive from slackbuilds.org wouldn't compile.  Stopped at following point:

I have no clue where to get the gd library.  Apparently it loads php5, but I can't find that either.

As far as AO 3.1 goes, it seems to work flawlessly.

Thanks retired1af

The eee machine is 32 bit.  I installed gd 2.1.1-x86_64-1vl72, being the only one I could find in the repository, but still get the "gd" error on installing texlive.
