I'm a French user of VL, from the 5.1 with which I've tested the blood =;) and used it on a old Pentium 133 laptop and I'm regulary writing for the magazine Linux Pratique ...
I'm so happy to see this 64 bits version on my AMD 3700+ and I'm ready to test it and to compile the programs I would eventually be missing, but if i'm not bad with installing and configuring Operating Systems (Linux, Mac and Windoz) and networking, in coding or programming, my knowledge is limited to "./configure, make & make install" =;)
So, I'm in the same case as posted by alec, vcpufreq won't start for me too, with the same error message! And I decided to get the sources and to compile from the tarball. But:
- the sources that I 've checked by SVN are very strange compare to what I'm used too =:) it seems I need the program Gambas to compile it, right?
- Gambas needs a lot of libraries and programs that I don't need now (sql, ldap...) but I could take this occasion to test them... But that's quite complicate just to compile a program for a x86_64 =;)
- I hoped vPackager would help me by checking the dependancies for me, but it just talk about System Architecture i586 and I'm surprised. It is not supposed to mention x86_64 as a choice? Anyway, by trying it with the Gambas tarball, it breaks and tells me to install manually! And for that, I need the other stuff that Gambas wants...
Do I am missing something? Is there another way to compile vcpufreq? Any help is welcome ...
The second error is the same as posted by wcs with Adobe Acrobat Reader, the ""unable to find HTML rendering library libgtkembedmoz" error and also, giving the right path of Firefox or Seamonkey still give the message.
But using Internet with Flash is working and VL found my Nvidia VGA and my two soundcards (SB Live PCI & Nvidia AC97) without trouble, just had to choose ALSA driver in Xmms after an error message and lt rocks =:)
I will have more time to test that nice beast further the next week, but for now, the speed of boot and halt is the quickest I've ever had with an OS on this PC, a great "bravo" from France to all the VL peoples!!!
