Can ConnochaetOS be installed frugal or
does it have to be full install?

Godano made it possible for frugal.
Sad that he lost all of his code due to no backup.

I installed slackware 14, but so far no luck to getting it to boot. I am probably going to wait until slacko 5.4 stable before adding it to my multiboot usb drive to get slackware to boot. I am not really in a rush to boot into it.

I think it has to be a full install, but I'm not sure - the ConnochaetOS forum is probably the best place to ask.

A quick update; just tested the alpha release of AntiX 12.5, and it's looking good, as is the latest release of Absolute except for the lack of package / dependency handling - a common fault with Slack-based distros but one Salix has managed to overcome (and I think Zenwalk too).

I see that the fourth Alpha release of Haiku is out today... and over 1000 bugs have been fixed since Alpha release three. Supposedly, it is a stable enough platform now for third party developers.

Apparently, it will run on as little as 128 mb of ram... and has been tested on a Pentium ll @400mhz --sound familiar? Wink

Has anyone besides sneekylinux had a go at trying this distro? Colonel Panic?

Hi,

No, I'm still using Mint, which looks pretty good right now. I may consider Haiku in the future though.

Just discovered that NimbleX is back after a period of inactivity. NimbleX 2012 Beta......
http://forum.nimblex.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4166

Just gave it a quick live run....not bad. Full KDE4 with most everything included,newer up to date kernel and no, it's not 200 mb anymore. Laughing

Cool thanks for telling us. As I get it?
Nimblex where a kind of Slax or Slackware
with a personal touch? How does it work
compared to Proteus and other Slax versions?

Currently running Bodhi Linux 2.1.0 - a little disappointing imo 100+ mb increase in download size and 20-30mb increase in ram usage on my laptop from the previous version.

Been a while since i last tried crunchbang but think i will give that a go next.

Good idea IMO; Crunchbang's a bit dark for my taste but you can change that and it works very well even on an older machine.

The latest one I've tried is Sabayon X (Xfce version); the download was ridiculously slow but when I finally got there I found it to be a good distro with attractive wallpaper.

All three are based on Slackware and use the Linux Live Scripts, or modified Linux Live Scripts in the case of Porteus. The previous versions of NimbleX were much smaller,200 mb or less, and mainly intended to run live or frugally.The newest Beta release is over 400 mb now.
I have no idea about running on NTFS though.... Smile

The *special* thing about NimbleX is that it lets you choose which programs to include in the iso you download. That means no more arguments about which text editor, browser, etc., should be included. No more need for all these derivatives which detract from the main release.

Yes its been a while since i last used Crunchbang (pre puppy) if i remember it was pretty much all black.

Decided to crunchify Bodhi - base ram usage is about 75mb now so not to shabby, think i will leave it installed for a bit Very Happy

That looks really good. Love the wallpaper. Solar eclipse, a recent one?

Also, is that Conky in the background? I like the config there.
