Blank Desktop - VL5.9-STD-LIVE.iso
« on: October 14, 2008, 08:23:35 pm »

Hi I believe all distros should have a verify disk option on the grub menu.

This one boots up on two computers  but ends up with a blank desktop on both. I have tried burning the iso file several times.

Emulator MobaliveCD replicates the startup of CD, so it definitely is a faulty iso download; first time I have had this!

This means having to download the >600mb file again oh well!
Cheers,
Alistair.

Thanks for that I'll definitely use it next time. Hope that eventually this distro does have a self test as it seems pretty well standard for all others.

BTW Vector Light plus Ubuntu are the only two distros that correctly got my wifi pci card recognised with no drama whatsoever; this is out of another 10 different Linux versions.

If I remember correctly, the installable versions do check for file integrity.
Do you mean the live cds?

Yes I do mean live CD. But no, it doesnt have self test.
Also, I was dissapointed that this version seems to be missing many items that are in the run menu eg you click on a program to run, and its not there. Most outstanding of these was the package manager!

Oh, I meant the installable versions check for file integrity.

What happens when you click the gslapt icon?
