Vectorlinux 7.0 has been the most well received Vectorlinux so far. Just recently I posted the install instructions for Vectorlinux Light. So I thought I'd follow that up with the install instructions for Vectorlinux 7.0 Standard Gold, 32bit and 64 bit vlocity, and soho. Luckily, they all use the same installer. VL std gold is out already 64bit and Soho are coming soon.

Enlightenment on Vectorlinux-Light 7.0 installing and running.

Vectorlinux-Light 7.0 is an outstanding operating system for older hardware, requiring only 128mb of ram to install and runs on as little as 55mb of ram at start-up with JWM desktop environment and 85mb of ram with LXDE. Enlightenment is famous for being glitzy and light, two things that don't usually combine well. So I thought I'd give it a go and put Enlightenment on Vectorlinux-light and see how much more than 85mb the ram requirements would go. The results were surprising.

Installing Bodhi 1.4.0 a little commentary and a question about ram usage.

So after taking a look at Vectorlinux-light's release on Distrowatch.com, I noticed Bodhi Linux released right after. Knowing the Enlightenment is also a light desktop environment, thought I'd give a bit of instruction on installing this distribution as well. You can watch the installation instruction or skip ahead to the commentary, or even skip further ahead to a comparison between Enlightenments ram usage in Vectorlinux-light vs Bodhi Linux 1.4.0

File Sharing with Thunar and SSH on your Local network.

I've done my fair share of tutorials on Thunar, but somehow I missed this. So for the sake of completing what I started, he is a look at "File Sharing with Thunar and SSH on your Local network."

Check out the video here....

Vectorlinux-Light 7.0 highlights and install.

Vectorlinux-Light 7.0 just hit distrowatch.com, so I was quick to have a look. Installation is old school, so I wanted to put up a tutorial so nobody walked away from trying it just because the installer was not what they expected. This distribution is a must for Legacy hardware. 85mb of system ram usage on the LXDE desktop, 55mb of system ram usage on JWM. This video is not the review or the tour, but will show highlights at the front end then instruct on how to install.
