- About Us
"Nothing is stopping power-users from installing the programs they want after the initial install."While this is technically true, I know the Vector devs are working on answering the problem of dependency issues. So, as for right now, Vector SOHO will NOT be a bleeding-edge distro. Every package that will be made available to the SOHO user base is built specifically for Vector, and tested on VL systems. Only after a package has been tested in real-world conditions will it be moved from "testing" to "stable". If one were to look around the SOHO directories, one would notice that NOTHING has been moved to a stable release - it's ALL in testing so far. But as an RC tester, I can report that the majority of the packages work quite well.
"...the script demanded that I reconfigure all the other options that were subsequent to keyboard configuration on the initial install. Needless to say, this would have been a huge waste of time, so I simply killed the configuration process."
"My next step was to get X11 up and running. I typed startx, thinking that after all the auto-detection done by Vector my X server would work properly upon first try. It did not..."
"Perhaps Vector Linux should consider editing that error message to read 'Sound will not be activated' instead of 'Sound will use<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/dev/null.'"
"I was forced to modprobe the module myself, edit the configuration files, and restart ALSA. That made two aspects of my hardware that Vector failed to auto-configure -- sound and video."
"I question Vector's decision to use such a bloated suite when space is so limited."
"Vector Linux is fast, secure, and up to date, but I'm afraid that it doesn't yet meet its goal of being friendly enough for home and small office users."
"While there was nothing major wrong with Vector Linux, there was nothing to distinguish it from any other distro either."
