vector linux deluxe cd's for 6.0?
« on: February 10, 2009, 10:53:37 pm »
I installed 5.9 some time ago and have been having a great time with vector.

I'd like to buy the 6.0 deluxe cd set, does anyone know when this will be available?

Thanks,

Steven

Hi,

Development of VL-6.0 Standard is coming along and I would guess that about 6 Months after it's final release you may see Deluxe nearing release. Maybe Vector will chime in here.
in any event VL-6.0 is going to be a good one.

Cheers

Quite probably not too long after VL6 goes final. It is still a release candidate at the moment.

I don't want to wait that long... :)
I'm having a problem with my windows pc burning the iso for rc4...

can anyone suggest a freeware windows vista app for doing so?

I suspect you're confusing VL6 Standard Deluxe with VL6 SOHO. The Standard Deluxe CD set has come out very shortly after the release of VL Standard Gold in the past and I doubt it will be different this time. I have no inside information, though.

your Right Granny I was thinking of SOHO, yes the deluxe 6.0 standard should not be far behind the Gold.

Like I said, I didn't want to wait that long to check out 6.0.

I found imgburn for vista and was able to burn the iso. Tomorrow, I will have some extra time so I will install it to an extra machine of mine. Still, when 6.0 deluxe cds come out I want them, I like them coming on the cds with the multimedia bonux cd.

I hope that milkytracker, renoise and some other newer music applications are included on the new multimedia bonus cd.

When I have time, I'm building a new tower just for vectorlinux. I have been setting aside parts and stuff for a few months.
Have tower, video, hard drives, sound, need motherboard and RAM, lots and lots of ram...

Hi Steven,
I Built Milkytracker it should show up in testing repro soon.  as for renoise, it seems to be a propritory package. that is it's not free or open software and thus I doubt it can be built for linux /VL. Sorry.

Dave,

How about adding skaletracker? www.skale.org

I guess I can just download and install renoise, I registered the windows version and I think they let you download the regged linux version free too, though I have not tried...

If you contact the renoise developers, I am sure they would like you to include their linux version on your cd...

From what I understand, the trial version is free for windows/linux and mac.
