The Vector team has released the third and final release candidate of VectorLinux 6.0. We really hated to do this, but there were some issues we resolved that we thought warranted it. With any luck we can simply rename this one as FINAL.
This release builds on the previous beta's and release candidate with a all new 188.8.131.52 kernel with patches to the alsa sound drivers that insures functionality for many of the new netbooks. The gui installer has been further tweaked with bug fixes and some new language translations. Many hardware related issues that were reported in the last release have been fixed. There have been security related updates to critical packages such as samba and a few others. Xfce4 has been rebuilt to include patches for better audio/video functionality. Lxde went thru a major overhaul so that all works as expected. There were some minor tweaks to the graphics and some new packages were added. We hope everyone interested will give this a good test drive and report any problems/bugs back to our forum development area. With any luck the final release should not be far off.
We have found a way to include a version of nvidia drivers for all 4 generations of cards. please let us know if we get your right.
