Presently though both apt-get and Synaptic are inoperative so temporarily stuck with old kernel. Laughing

Guys this is really funny.

http://distrowatch.com/7622
SparkyLinux 2.0.1, a lightweight Debian-based distribution
featuring a customised LXDE deskto

Yes finally a lightweigt Debian. How small it is?

Download: sparkylinux-2.0.1-gameover-i386.iso (3,913MB

3.913 MB that is even smaller than my DVD having some 4.70 or 4.37 GB?
(Jasper Thanks for correction) Typical of me.

I mean come on Puppy Linux. You have to cut size to fit in
among the really light weight guys Smile

My regards

Nooby and Jasper,

I believe nooby's post referred to the games version.

The authors also offer a "Venus Lite" iso at 673M, third entry at http://sparkylinux.org/download/. It's based on Debian Squeeze.

BFN.

Hi musher0,

I see 3913 MB for a Games version, or

"SparkyLinux ???GameOver??? is available as a large DVD media of 3.9GB."

Can you please advise the current Canada v England match score?

My regards

I grabbed the Venus Lite, and installed it. Nice.

It uses the new Remastersys as the installer.
It is as good as, and very like Bodhi 1.2, but no root logins, so I will keep using Bodhi. Pity.

Also a pity that Bodhi lost the plot after 1.2.

Not being very adventurous, I've been playing with Lubuntu 12.10. Nice, compact, reasonable feature set. Still prefer Slacko though.

Guys I am the most lazy tester of OS on this forum.
Month after month or is it a year and I still ahve not
tried to learn the Subito way of doing things.

He has an account at GitHub and I have no idea what that is
but others maybe can explain. there is something about his
way of doing things that makes me very interested but
I am not on that level so I fail to use his stuff. That is life
as we say Smile

https://github.com/iguleder/roar-ng-ii
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=75753

So would be happy if somebody retold if you have used
subito and how on earth one use the "windows" in it.

Yes I know a friendly soul did tell me some details in PM
but I failed to get that good advice too.

Using PCLinuxOS (KDE version) at the moment. My first attempt at installing it failed but (an admittedly drastic step) it worked once I'd allowed the installer to delete the previous partitions on the drive and start from scratch.

Pclinux has been a solid os for me since 2007, although later releases seem to be slower. I usually install a linux os on a small 1st partition(20 gb) then a Puppy save file on a larger 2nd data partition.
Cheers

Very Happy

My Raspberry Pi should arrive this week - I want to move the development from GitHub to it, then set up a website and a wiki maybe, then publish the distro. Don't worry, everything will be documented Smile
