I was given a nice Latitude D820 the other day; core2;
4Gb ram.
Needs a battery and sata drive so I can do a Snow Leopard
Hackintosh.

Until then; did a full install of Vector Gold 7 to external usb
ide drive.

Looks and works terrific! Smile

Today I did a Vector 7 light version install on my r51 Thinkpad, seems to fit the bill nicely.. even has gtkdialog-0.8 as a default app.

I've run Vector Linux 6 classic and loved it. I have also booted Vector 7 gold live, but it is a lot different.
Cheers

I just tried Vector 7 gold live installed in a usb thumb drive.

It was booted using standard grub installed on the usb drive and ran very nicely except that making a persistent directory on the boot thumb drive did not work.

Has anyone been able to make this work with a persistent save?

Cheers,

Interesting. Vector Linux is a traditional Linux OS. The Live CD is for demo purposes. It is possible to install the Live CD to HDD per Vector Linux documentation. However, it is recommended that the user install the operating system from a standard installable CD.

Hi Guys,

This is not to put down any distro, especially Vector Linux which I can't test very much as it does not support my wifi OOTB.

But I tried to a while back because I liked the possibilities of Xfce. But now we have Saluki which uses Xfce. And a Xfce pet for Lupu/Lucid. The latter works fine, although customizing it is not as simple as doing so in Saluki. And, of course, there's Grey's various NOP puplets.

So, the questions arise --especially suited for this forum-- (1) What advantage does Vector have over Puppy? and (2) Can it be incorporated into Puppy?

The gslapt package manager is better than the ppm, fast downloads and more recent versions of programs to choose from.
More packages in the repo too.

That's the main advantage that I see anyhow.
