VectorLinux 6.0 RC4 has been released
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 126.96.36.199 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"
