Light please.  Though Vector Zero does sound interesting.  Zero Vector could be bad though.

What about 'Pure Vector'

It's better to die 10 times, than never to have loved at all.

Another burner: Austrumi provides SimpleCDR-X for remastering and creating your own live CD with Austrumi.

A couple of annoyances:

If I right-click a video file and try to open it with mplayer, mplayer fails to open it (it happens in ubuntu too).

rxvt does not catch parameters of ~/.Xdefaults (at least, I haven't come to a way of sorting it out)

Great work btw. 20Mb on a cold boot! I don't remember this since vl 5.1 .

I don't know if these are bugs or if I've done something wrong:

-I get no bootsplash, just the text whizzing by after I select VL from lilo

-the text stops for about 15-20secs here:
Performing Coldplugging
/dev/.tmp-3-0: unknown volume type
/lib/udev/ line 31: cannot create temp file for here document
  Read-only file system
grep: /etc/udev/rules.d/cd-devices.rules: no such file or directory
chgrp: cannot access 'cdrom{NUMBER}' : no such file or directory
/lib/udev/ line 59: /etc/udev/rules.d/cd-devices.rules: Read-only file system

and then continues at the same fast rate as before.

And a question too: what does VL Light B2 use for login? I would like to change it, but don't know what it is. I've been told it probably slim, but I can't find it on my disk.

To get bootsplash, you need to select so during the installation of LILO. Some times the video system/video driver combination does not support it, and will default to text only.

Those errors involve the probing of cdrom devices. Not sure what is causing them, but if your cdrom drive works you can ignore them (one reason for bootsplash is to hide those errors  Wink )

B2 did not have a mechanism for changing login manager, but if you delete /usr/bin/slim, XDM should take over.
