rokytnji, Lite is too light for me Smile

I tested Antix and it did not allow me to mount the HD.

But the sad thing is that Debian varieties are very much at it
with protecting the user in ways that one need to be very good at
understanding computers for to use Debian at all if using a Live distro
in frugal install on a NTFS HD.

And some 90 % of all sold home computers are NTFS
and you need to be very good at resizing the NTFS
for to do full install. And one need Ms Win for to upgrade
the Smartphone and you need it for games that does not exist
on Linux and for ID Certification when you show IRS who you are
and Bank may use such Certification that does not work on linux.

Sure one can buy two computers and use one for linux?

Or boot using USB or to switch out the HD and use another Hd
in it's place but very few ordinary users that are not into Linux
would do such things.

My former work mate is better at using computers than what I am
and he still has not tested Linux despite me have nudged him
since 2006 and despite Linux rescued him when ms win acted up.

So I feel very concerned about the way Debian and it's varieties
treat the majority of computer users. They force us to do full install.
That is not nice behavior. Both Knoppix and Puppy and Slax show
that one can do frugal installs on NTFS. Not ideal but it works.

Minino works using isobooter on USB
but the Midori does not have a modern version
of Adobe Flash so youtube and local TV refuse
to show videos.

those distros that works on isobooter
and does have working adobe flash
AFAIK MintLXDE, Solyd Linux, Solus linux,
Zorin Linux, ChrunchBang linux.
Which of them to prefer have no idea
so I keep all of them just in case Smile

Sub_title: Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail
 

I installed the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail on my
intel imac.
It is booting either OSX or Ubuntu from the hard drive + I can also
boot a puppy live cd with a save file on a partition of the hard drive
or a SDHC card.
This 64 bit version is fast!

Is intel imac very different from MacBook Pro?

Hideho has a thread where he ask how to get Puppy
booted on his machine. Maybe your success can help him?

link to his thread none has suggested any answer.
Macbook Pro / grub 2 errors -any ideas

Can someone help me understand SystemRescueCD?
How does one look into sda1 using the file manager
it ask for some kind of command. What can that be about.
Could it be root and toor or whatever?

I made a frugal install on NTFS HD

SystemRescueCD is based on Gento
which is rather big OS I downloaded it from Sourceforge?
You can read about it at several places.
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=systemrescue
http://www.sysresccd.org/Download

I took the grub4dos from their own text
but had to change it a bit.

here is their original?
title SystemRescueCd from hard-disk
root (hd0,0)
kernel /sysrcd/rescuecd subdir=sysrcd setkmap=us
initrd /sysrcd/initram.igz

But I could not find any rescuecd file but instead found
rescue64 and rescue32 and guessed them had same purpose
and my computer is 64bit so I ended up like this for sweden.

title SystemRescueCd from the NTFS disk
root (hd0,0)
kernel /sysrcd/rescue64 subdir=sysrcd setkmap=se docache
initrd /sysrcd/initram.igz

But being lazy I copied these file out to the Dir and did not let them
be in their original subdirs like isolinux
so if you are less lazy add a subdir there
and see if it works.

Midori but now Adobe flash .

Just installed Mageia 3 RC, the open source successor of Mandriva. It looks good but I haven't figured out yet how to add any software to it.

I've also installed Descent OS recently, which used to be based on Ubuntu 12.04 and is now based on Debian though with the MATE desktop. It's a lot like Mint but with different, somewhat darker colour scheme and decorations. Seems to work well but I'm not sure yet what advantages it offers over "vanilla" Ubuntu.

No, I haven't tried it yet. Antix 13 beta 3 came out today instead and testing reinstalls are gonna take up my time.

livarp try to take the best part of available Debian GNU/Linux applications without loosing accessibility or design.

special attention was paid to the documentation and livarp-help-center to let you discover the easiest way these 9 window managers.

livarp can handle PIII with 128M ram but is better with a PIV and 512M ram. higher config are just bonus Smile.

livarp is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian squeeze and built with the Debian Live project.
livarp is available in iso9660 (format cd) Live/Installcd or img format for usb use.
made by arpinux : contact@arpinux.org
95% free (conky, some firmwares and flashplugin for the last 5%)
light, fast and stable: livarp is based on Debian Squeeze, one of the most stable distro atm..
anynoob-inside livarp is made for every user that can read and want to discover alternatives window-managers.
9 sessions available from live to install: vtwm, dwm, echinuswm, awesomewm, evilwm, pekwm, wmfs, fluxbox and compiz stand-alone.

But they do say that one can install it.
They even give detailed instructions and
code for both grub4dos and Grub2

What they think users already know is to mnt a HD
That is the knowledge I miss. On Linux Mint
I don't have to know if I use Isobooter on USB

So it could have to do with such considerations.
But they say they have done their best to make an easy to use distro

It aims to be very easy to use.

Sub_title: Ubuntu 13.04 + Gnome
 

I installed Ubuntu 13.04 + Gnome 64 bit version.
It is running well on an Acer desktop pc with an intel i3 processor
and 6 gb ram.
It takes a few minutes learn about using work spaces etc, but
it's interesting.

thanks for making me curious on that one. I first used Isobooter
and booted it from an USB and that failed on my Compaq 64 machine
Maybe I should have used compatibility mode it maybe failed to get
the drivers for the graphic going.

So me thought that Debian can boot on HD using grub4dos so why not try?

I gave it this code borrowed from their isolinux example.

Code:
title descent
root (hd0,0)
kernel /live/vmlinuz2 boot=live username=descentos hostname=descentos union=aufs locale=en_US.UTF-8 keyb=en swapon noprompt quiet
initrd /live/initrd2.img


I had used puppy for to open up the iso and then copied out the live directory
to the HD and it booted just fine in compatibility mode but the screen is slightly off
to the right but no big deal.

And the best news despite this being a absolutely frugal install on NTFS
it actually save edited HTML files without needing any su or sudo.
Not even root Smile Surprise indeed.

The only bad part is that the Adobe Flash is too old for the local TV station
and too old for BBC have not tested CNN so don't know.

How do one set up permanence in this debian? Would be cool to be able
to update the adobe and have it as an alternative to knoppix?

Wow indeed. That is really surprising. Don't tell the developer that he
has changed from the very strict rules of Debian never allowing what it do here.

I trust next version will fail like the other debians do except Pussy Linux
