I downloaded last night and so far everything is good to go.  I really liked 5.8 SOHO but when it did not have xorg 7.2 it was a show stopper for me. Glad you fixed it.
The only thing I can complain about is every time I start up I have to turn on Beryl.  It will not stay when I shut Down.
I think Vector is going to the top of the pile.

Why exactly is not having xorg 7.2 a show stopper?

The Beryl settings need to be tweaked for KDE. For instance the default screenshot program is "gnome-screenschot", this should be changed to "kscreenshot".

Also, I noticed that some things sometimes show up as black windows with beryl, like konsole. Also, kmenu's sub menu's sometimes show up as black rectangles.

ps. it would be cool if the unused sides of the cube had a VL logo rather than the default beryl logo on it.


[edit]

Some programs think the win32 codecs should be in /usr/lib/win32, but the codecs package installs them to /usr/lib/codecs. AFAIK this place is correct, but can we please have a symlink /usr/lib/win32 pointing to /usr/lib/codecs for backward compatibility? There is one in 5.8 standard, but not on SOHO. Programs built on standard might look for codecs in /usr/lib/win32 (like my kaffeine package does).

Well on my pentium M 1.7 sony laptop VGN-fs840) with a gig of ram nearly everything ran perfect, with the following two exceptions:

The substitute for windows fonts package did not install and the beryl package would not load and fell back to the default windows manger.  (I also don't like the initial boot menu - looks really drab).  It found my default resolution (let X figure it out) at 1280 x 800 - perhaps that option and also 1600 x 1050 should be included in this xorg.conf too?

Aside from that wonderful app, very fast as usual and all the other stuff works (wifi, sound) well outta the box!  I like the default background with the Vector Linux Logo chiseled into rock.  Good job!!!

Addendum:  X picked up the proper resolution for both my monitors.  But I cannot move system type apps in my panel.  Example:  Laptop Battery Icon can't be moved.  Kwifi Icon can't be moved with rt click.  All apps installed by "Add App to Panel move around."   Can you fix this?

I have had a few problems, first I didn't get the non USA keyboard settings, I got the file not found error that we had previously in an earlier soho beta.    Secondly when starting Beryl I got a crash error message.  Thirdly you can't change the individual desktop backgrounds.  Also when you try to add more virtual desktops it does it in groups of 4.  I have to say I found the eyecandy of Beryl very very distracting and not at all useful... a case of bells and whistles getting in the way, but that is a personal issue.

I am trying out the RC1.

Beryl crashes for me also, same dump as already posted.

Additionally, networking works fine sometimes but after most reboots I get "Network is Unreachable" messages.  I have switched e-net cards and get same results with both cards.

I haven't tried the live CD yet, I'll try that next.

I hope we can get past this show stopper, because, so far, I think SOHO is a keeper!

So you have 2 network cards? in that case, you'll probably want to check this thread out:

The Headacher -

Thanks for your suggestion.

I don't have two card in the system at one time.  I switched the cards to ensure the problem wasn't just that SOHO didn't like that particular card.

I've installed this RC1...
looks like there is no Dvorak keymap in the installer (there small come on!! :) )
after installing looks like running KEYMAP in the installer yields an "Error no X11 keymaps installed", hitting exit will exit the whole installer -> auto reboot
running vasm->keymap in mode 3 will yield the same error
running vasm->keymap in mode 4 (in KDE) will let me choose from a list of keymaps, but looks like the DVORAK one is broken, it keeps getting me back to the selector and not ask me to test the layout, BUT selecting other keymaps will work fine :(

btw, some of the keymap options are for text mode and some for X, but iirc did not see any info about which is which.

running vleasytables from the KDE menu will start but none of the options work. running from vasm or the console works ok

that WindowDecoration is awful (big, ugly) :( i would prefer Glow -> Glass (19x19)  as a default

Well, I built i965 drivers and I get:

libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x5a

when starting glxgears, wine, openoffice, etc.. Something bad with X?
What should I check?

run glxinfo and check to see if you are actually getting a visual at 0x5a
from what i found on google this is "Note that this is completely cosmetic and has no functional impact."
