Installed VL7.1-STD-RC4.1 to sda2 on the toshiba satellite A-100
gui install/advanced/existing/sda2/xfce4/lilo to sda
install went well, kicked cd and rebooted with option for sda1 (vl-light)
auto booted to login screen, user name and password logged into xfce session...Firefox updated, easy connection to wifi,
velocity 7.0 installer screen
two options for same sr0 to install..just clicked next.
flash of text prior to boot splash (perhaps hardware related..something like..drm..i810..does not support smp.
some text flashed prior to login screen but to fast to read
no xfce4-timer or weather plugin in gslapt
when updating package list in gslapt it has issue with added testing source "http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86/
", reading the list appears to freeze and gslapt disappears.
removing the source and refreshing the list freezes at patches and required force close..reopen and clicking update appeared to work.
same happens in Light but worked fine yesterday, Bad time perhaps..or list has moved elsewhere..whatever..managed to install 32 bit on the laptop.
adding: fluxbox and awesome appear in the session menu, adding fluxbox via gslapt then offers a session when selected, awesome appeares to be already installed in gslapt but gives a 10 sec timeout error when session is selected.
