I've actually been very happy with my Toshibas.  They're reliable.  The Libretti in question are coming up on 10 years old.

I installed VL-Mini onto a partition of my Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204.  Nice.  Tarred and gzipped up the installed, working contents of the partition and dropped them onto the waiting partition on the Libretto.  Still no go.  I guess that the Libretto will go back to VL 5.8 for now.

It doesn't work with VL 5.9 Light (any alpha version) or VL 5.9 Mini A1.  Oh, it installs everything as it should, tells me install is done, and then issues a segmentation fault telling me my kernel (I assume the DSL kernel) is too old.  DSL uses kernel 2.4.31.

The highlight of SCALE 6x for me so far has been meeting Robert Shingledecker, whose Damn Small Linux is one of the best distributions out there for hardware that's seen better days. I won't go into all we talked about, but in the way of news, Robert told me that Damn Small Linux will soon go beyond the 2.4 Linux kernel and put out a release based on 2.6 at some point in the near future.

we are getting close to a release of vlocity...it lives up to it's name also by the way with decreased boot times running live as well as freeing up some ram  requirements...the iso size is down to 251.7mb at this point

VL Light is definitely creeping in the opposite direction. Considering that the starting point is a 1.3 GB chunk based on VL Std, this version will not be anywhere close to small. It has become more of a different choice in WM/DE's and default applications. We're gonna need to do VL Mini after this one.  ;)

I agree.  I've been very impressed with VL Mini Alpha 1.1 and I do believe there is real potential for a little vesion to be popular, particularly for the new wave of machines using little RAM devices in lieu of hard drives.  When you only have 4GB or less to play with a small OS Is crucial.  VL Mini fits the bill beautifully. 

Personally I'd like to see the next build of Mini include the latest LXDE as the default desktop.  I've always liked JWM but LXDE does take the concept to the next level.

Unless you found some secret place where ISOs are posted, you installed VL-LIVE 7, not VL-lite 7 (and it's "light," not "lite").

If you want to keep using VectorLinux, it's recommended that you install the Standard ISO, not the Live version, which is intended for demo purposes and for having something portable you can take around when you can't install on a hard druve,

There're light live alpha versions in a not-so-secret place, but the file date of the first was one day prior to your post; I don't refresh three times a day either :P    I'd post a URL, but looks like Nightflier has chosen other methods here for passing on the info. Must be testing his inbox capacity :)

Nods to the idea of using an installation rather than a live ISO for install as of now. Don't know whether Light 7 will continue to have different live vs. install discs, but as stated in the link above, what's there hasn't been released for public testing, let alone general installation. If you're interested in testing for testing's sake, though, see the link.
