Well i found one method to get VectorLinux 6 back. i broke out the old Dell D610 and installed it, and now it's nice to be back in a REAL Linux again, with root logins, terminal logins out of box, and an actual properly working package manager. sometime in the future i'll figure out how to make a real hard disk work in my Chromebook so i can use a VM to run Vector. Vector remains to this day my fav distro.

Crouton runs ChrUbuntu in a VM, meaning slower and less reliable. i'd prefer a real linux running natively if possible. if i could only get Vector to install on the Chromebook like it did the Dell. Vector is so, well, EASY. maybe it's that i'm sort of a power user of Linux and perhaps Ubuntu is too dumbed down and protective to allow me to do things i like to do. but i can do Vector config in my sleep

EDIT: oh, Vector responds to the brightness control hotkeys. so wonderful.

Some screencaps:
