Re:where are the packages ?

" Use the packages at linuxpackages.net. Vector linux is an attempt to make a user friendly desktop distro based on Slackware. You don't need "Vector" packages, since they are really Slackware packages. So if Slackware has the package, Vector does also. "

OK, handy to know, will be interstting to see how compatible these packages are.

" Please note that this is also a release candidate and not the completed product. Perhaps you should try Vector Linux 4 which is a completed product. SOHO is Vector Linux Supercharged. "

I tried VL 4.0.
For the life of me I could not see what VL 4.0 does better than Slackware...<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... but I am happy for people to use what ever they like.
