yes it looks rather like a root terminal and in a more perfect boot would not be seen..not sure why I was compelled to post about it.

will have a look at light

edit..light has just one line..like..gdm..no security token could be found

I clicked the tutorial desktop icon but the channel no longer exists

Put RC4.6.1 on cd and put it in my DEL.  After the comment that the screen may flash, I get a pop-up saying video input out of range.

This is on a Gateway flat screen through an IOGear splitter.

Don't know what video settings the installer use, but I've seen several monitors complain about it. Usually I can still continue, though.

Can you type "install" and use the text installer?

Thanks, nightflier.  It wasn't until you mentioned it that I rembered I had gone through that option.  It is now processing the requested operations. 

Mouse would not work - had to use tab key.

Oh! this is 32 bit.

Lilo picked up two other OSs but slipped by too fast to see what they were.  I like that all of the hd partitions are on the screen and in Thunar.  I'll see if I can rename them -  opps!  They're not in fstab!  Nor on either Desktop!

Menu/Web browser started Firefox which opened its start page and another tab was loading - don't know where, canceled and closed.

Started gslapt, removed all packages except testing[qoute]Source failed
ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-7.1/testing/
This package source failed or is not available...[/quote]Will try later.

It only took 3 tries but I finally got my HP Officejet to print.  It helps if I would read!

It's about an hour later. Gslapt still fails to load.  It may be a week or more before I can try again.

For 32 bit, use this as your untested:  http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86/

That's strange. I just tried it and it flew right on through with no errors. I'm on 64-bit, though. Someone else who's using the 32-bit RC needs to test as well. If push comes to shove, I'll install on another partition and see what happens.

Assume you copy pasted the link to gslapt/ edit/preferences/sources/ add and then updated...this worked for me recently..but did not try this particular link today..although it is a valid link

I may have mistyped it.  It will be a few days before I can try again.  Thanks for your replys.

I normally turn laptop off,it is a old Gateway with Realtek 8187se nic uses driver rtl818x. Today Lid got closed on Laptop,went into suspend mode opened Lid gave password all good except wifi connection did not start icon normally shows activity when looking for router no activity. Clicked on icon showed networks selected network asked for password did password connect no response.I tried this a few times sometimes notification network disconnected other times no notification. Network is set to start automatically. I tried nmcli seems useless ifupdown same. Seems as if NetworkManager goes to sleep not suspend and does not want to wake up.


Would prefer shut down option in addition to suspend in power management.
