VL-7.2-Light B2.1 has been rebuilt with these fixes, as well as several package updates. Everyone is invited to test it.   ;D

installed the 32 bit light b2.1
cups is better..just added the drivers this time, then added the printer.
 scan to pdf with added xsane and printed the pdf from viewer.
 typed and spell checked a note in abiword and printed..looks good so far.

noted the switch to wicd..liked the previous after fix but this seems to work.

Thanks

Good feedback, thanks. You can easily get NetworkManager from repo. Remove wicd, then install NetworkManager and network-manager-applet, and edit your startup script to launch "nm-applet" instead of "wicd-client". Reason for the swich is that wicd is less complex, it does not insert itself as deeply into the system as NM does.
