I installed VL6.0-STD-A0.12.iso (finally after 4 failed attempts) on a Toshiba Satellite S2800-100, Celeron 650 MHz, 192 MB ram, Savage S3 video, 30 GB HDD
Like I said in the 'Install' comments, setting the keyboard region to Norwegian in the installer did not work, and I could find no way to set this on any menu when finally running. The Vector Control Center should have a Region Settings menu (for keyboard, time zone, ...)
I get the feeling with a lot of these distros that the menus are based on the 'never mind the quality, feel the width' philosophy, with sub-menus stuffed full of all sorts of items which pop up in more than one place. This needs to be streamlined, too many things are repeated. For example the Vector Control Center menu item is buried in a long list, but when you open it most of the things blinding you on the previous list are then repeated... Utilities, Settings, Setup are common in a lot of distros but there seems to be no clear logic behind what goes where..
Now something which MUST work for me to use a distro, WIRELESS!!! I cannot be bothered spending time in a console trying to get a distro to work properly with wireless - its usually a waste of time anyway. (you don't have to with Xubuntu or Kubuntu). The promising thing here was that this version actually detected I had Wifi connected (DLink USB DWL G122 C1, Ralink RT73chip). When I clicked on the WiFi button it helpfully asked me if I wanted to set it up.. this is progress. But something is still wrong. I was asked if I used security, WEP or WPA, I was asked for the SSID, and password - and then it told me no wireless network detected!!
In Xubuntu and Kubuntu the wireless is scanned automatically and I get informed of the detected network name(s) and the security type(s), all I have to do is select a network and give the password... and it functions.
More work must be done on wireless functionality.
