I came across this little gem and gave it a look. It seems to have some great potential. However, there are a couple issues for me.

1. Getting xload to function like it should.
2. Getting xnet to function, maybe it is called xnetload ?
3. Changing the color of the panel

And possibly to move the resize function that accompanies an open app "rox, firefox" It is in the way of scrolls and other functions. Though this would require somehacking of code unlike the mentioned items above.

Here is a pupget pkg. w/ source. You can start it by typing from prompt "startx hazewm" The config file is located in "/root/.hazerc Anybody interested in messing with this wm simply reply with answers and or questions.

Seems like a very small and fast wm. I really do hate manually "fixing" menus so I just added a few and then added kde kicker to give me everything:)

Neat find!!

Hmm, I find its webpage, but there are no download links there:

That's why we always need new forks of old projects -sometimes old projects simply disappear.

@amigo

The download link is on the [home] page http://www.escomposlinux.org/jes/index.html
I compiled it with that src2pkg thingy that someone came up with...
Trouble is it (HaZe) cannot find any fonts or the xpm's it needs, even though they are where they should be. Consequently it never quite loads and not a lot happens.

You have to set it up in the rc file to use fonts that are actually installed

Done that, but it still can't find the xpms it needs. Messages appear in bar across top of screen, but no desktop. There should be a default colour in the absence of a piccy, but nothing happens. Program just hangs.
Now running it without a hazerc gets a nice black desktop with a tile bar that has a 'File' menu (only has a quit option, but it works), and the desktop number. And that's it.

Are all of the icons in one of the IconPaths (default is:)
IconPath /usr/local/share/haze:/usr/local/include/X11/pixmaps:/usr/share/pixmaps:/usr/share/icons:/usr/share/icons/mini

I would recommend starting with a blank rc file and adding a couple of lines at a time.

I just kept removing stuff that gave warnings to make it run.

I got Haze.....

Used your hazerc and just changed the icon path back to the default /usr/local/share/haze. No amount of fiddling on my part (copying the icons to the other paths etc) would work previously. This had severely irritated me, so thanks for easing my pain.
Did you get compile errors? eg "-I- is deprecated use -iquote instead".
I'm on 214R at the moment, and had to recompile but didn't get the error this time, older GCC presumably.

To get xload actually showing change
Code:
Swallow "xload"   Action Exec "xload" exec xload -geometry 100 -fg orange -bg black -nolabel -update 1
to
Code:
Swallow "xload"   Action Exec "xload" exec xload -geometry 25x25 -fg orange -bg black -nolabel -update 1
in hazerc.
Should we hack on this? Add systemsounds, desktopicons or other additions?

I wouldn't spend time working on the themes and such until the code side is improved to handle missing items in the rc file gracefully.
For fonts default to -*-*-*-....
For images default to a builtin xpm
For swallow don't run if its not runnable
etc...

other than those its kinda nice, and it has a permissible license
other thoughts:
the whole B&W thing is about pointless when the icons are in color - maybe make it theme-able or (optionally) grayscale the images
I found myself missing minimize/restore
