VectorLinux Light 6.0 Beta 3

Posted by Rodrigo Bistolfi at Mar 08, 2009 06:55 PM |
Filed under: Releases

It's testing time again. Light Beta 3 is here:

To create a version suitable for older/slower computers, the Vector team started with VL6.0 Standard Gold and replaced XFCE/LXDE with IceWM/JWM. The most resource hungry applications were removed, and where feasible, replaced with lighter alternatives. Running services are kept to a minimum. ISO image file has been re-done with less compression that can be handled by lower spec machines. Download is 615 MB and a full install consumes 2.6 GB of hard drive space.

Light is biased towards simplicity and performance, but you get a complete and capable system. It can easily be expanded using the gslapt package manager or by compiling your own applications. Package selection includes Pcmanfm 0.5 as your file and desktop manager. Opera provides a fast and standards compliant web browser with Flashplayer 10 and Mplayer plugins, as well as e-mail and bittorrent clients. Firefox is also available. For local multimedia playback you will find Xmms, Gmplayer and Xine. Vburn takes care of basic CD burning tasks. The Wicd network manager makes it easy to manage wireless connections. Pidgin Instant Messenger works with IRC, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Google talk and several other services. The ultra-light Siag Office provides basic word processing and spreadsheet functionality. Graphics are handled by Gqview, Xpdf and Mtpaint. Additional programs include Xarchiver, Leafpad, Ripperx, Xchat, Gftp, Dillo, HV3 and the Fox applications. You can choose between the GDM or KDM login managers. GDM has the advantage of offering easy localization for non-English users. Default auto-mounter for removable devices is vl-hot.

Fearless volunteers are encouraged to give this one a torture test and report their findings here:

Filed under: Releases

The final release of VectorLinux 6.0 (code name 'Voyager') is now available. This release is a major milestone in the ten year history of Vectorlinux. With the unbridled enthusiasm of a community gone wild, we have forged our very own stable GUI installer and our repository now hosts over a thousand packages.

The main desktop is based on Xfce-4.4.3 with a custom theme and artwork again unique to VectorLinux. LXDE is installed as a secondary desktop option. Much work has been done on localization and we know users from all over the globe will find VectorLinux a stellar experience.

The best of the Open Source world is included: Gimp, Inkscape, Gtkam, Gqview and Xpdf for Graphics; Firefox, Opera, Dillo and Seamonkey for Internet Browsing; aMsn, Pidgin and Xchat for instant messaging; K3b and our very own vburn for CD burning; Mplayer, XMMS, Xine and VLC for playing most available media formats. The office applications are Gnumeric, Abiword and Scribus.

With all the improvements in installation, usability and hardware Support, we believe this release will finally give Vectorlinux the desktop recognition it deserves.

VectorLinux 6.0 RC4 has been released

Posted by Rodrigo Bistolfi at Jan 27, 2009 03:59 AM |
Filed under: Releases

The VectorLinux team has released the fourth and we hope final release candidate of VectorLinux 6.0. There were more issues then we anticipated and some major upgrades to key programs that we feel requires another RC before we can feel comfortable with a final release. With any luck there should be no more RC releases.

This release builds on the previous release candidate with a all new 2.6.27.12 kernel and the new alsa sound release 1.0.19 that insures functionality for many of the new netbooks and fixes a ton of problems with the intel-hda sound module. The gui installer has been further tweaked with more bug fixes that address some smaller problems. More hardware related issues that were reported in the last release have been fixed. There have been security related updates to critical packages such as openssl, ntfs-3g and a few others. We have included 4 versions of nvidia drivers that should cover all generations of video chipsets. There were some minor tweaks to the graphics and some new packages were added. Internationalization and localization have been improved with additional fonts and bug fixes. We hope everyone will give this a test drive and report any problems/bugs back to our forum development area.

Thank You, Vector and the "A Team"
