slapt-get --update && slapt-get --install sdl

"more light" means what? smaller size?

For me it means SPEED. You can make a small 200MB iso with heavyweight apps as XFCE and GIMP and you can make 700MB iso with lightweight environment and many small simple apps (usability of which is usually questionable).

If it cannot be usable let it be fast though  :-\

Thank you for your help. I mean more smaller size and more speed. VL 5.1 standard was a very good choice for me. I'll use vl5.9 light after final release.

VL5.9-Light-A2.3 is ready for download here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/Uelsk8s/iso-test/VL5.9-Light-A2.3.iso
Thanks to some heavy work done by Nightflier we have a good looking and usable system.

I guess we dont need to ask this question anymore. :)  so I am locking this thread, thanks for all the comments, and suggestions.
