Well.. I installed VL 5.9 pseudo 2 using both install methods.
The default method (without the "linux2" boot command) was apparently an all-text option.
It showed white text on black backround without the blue boxes.
The install took 23 minutes. From the "Here we go" message to the "Installation done" message.
The other method (the linux2 option) was showing the blue-boxes like seen on
vector 5.8. The install took 39 minutes... that's 16 minutes more than the other option...
could this be right
? hopefully I didn't do anything wrong
I'd say (yeah.. like someone cares what I think
) definately go with the "text only" method if it really
is that much faster. It's not like the "blue-boxes" are providing much extra eye-cande or anything
And anyway.. If - by just disabling some eye-candy - something can be made faster... always do it
Some notes (could be useless.. just posting to make sure) :
- The first install option seemed to be doing something wrong... because at the end
it claimed it was installing package 431 of 428. Where as the linux2 method did not seem to do this.
- Also the "show boot image 640x480" option did not work after the first installation method.
- There were two shortcuts for "vector docs" when logging in as root on runlevel 4.
- There were a shortcut for "gaim" on the desktop when logging in as root on runlevel 4 (which did not seem to work...
it opened somekind of text document)
Well... hopefully I was of some help here. Or - atleast - did not harm anyone(/thing).
