I know it does, but in my case it causes some problems.

In case anyone is interested. I am downloadng it from sourceforge for later.

Quote:

This version is very small, (c 157MB), very basic and very ugly.


Includes:

* 3.12.1 kernel
* JWM
* xfe
* iceape suite.

That's about it!

It is installable to hard disk using the cli-installer. If you do install you MUST edit as root user this line in etc/inittab line before installation. Simply change demo to your new user name.

1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f demo tty1 </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

Repo is set to Debian Testing.
To reboot or halt, use sudo reboot or sudo halt.

Have fun!

Md5sum is at sourceforge.

The forum leaves my post blank on preview with a clickable link so

Saintless here in our forum created something similar to that one
but using another browser and use apt-get to download the browser
you want.

I know too little though http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=90586

It's based on Debian Squeeze nooby. The one I posted is newer. I run Guydog which is
based on Squeeze and it can be a pain in the butt with the debian package sources list
it has for downloading packages. Kinda hit or miss for a lot of stuff.

Since I got the .devx for it finally. It does not hurt so bad anymore.

Oops that explained it then. To squeeze the Wheezy
seems to be hard and the one you mention succeeded?

Stella 6.5 (a CentOS respin) is out now and I've installed it this past week. It is working well as Stella always does - unflashy, plain-looking and almost boring, but thoroughly competent with no unpleasant surprises.

I see the Red Hat / CentOS family of distros as being like the Windows NT of Linux; somewhat retro and "behind the times" (Stella uses Firefox 17 ESR, for example), but they're stable and reliable and get the job done, and Stella is the most user-friendly Red Hat-based distro I've seen - even Flash works right out of the box.

The only downsides it has are that its repertoire of applications isn't as extensive as Debian's, and it probably runs more slowly on older machines than some other distros.

Installed Debian 7.2 using the a Debian live image with xfce and non-free hardware support. Maybe I'll build a little debian live modification using the saintless's method but with Wheezy instead of Squeeze.

PostPosted: Fri 13 Dec 2013, 11:20    Post subject: SUSE Studio kame your own version?  

I am too confused to read all that text
and to get the implications. But seems
they promise you can tailor make your
own Suse using the SUSE Studio tools.

Sounds interesting to me. It is easy they say?
Has any of you tested to do it ?

Download from links on Distrowatch?

Switched from Bodhi to Crunchbag for my full HDD install - going to try and leave it be and just use it as my main OS over the Christmas period.

James C thanks for the link to Vsido
New to me so that was interesting.

Being Debian based did you test
if it allow you to boot as root?

If you did that could you share the code needed
on the menu.lst ?

I failed getting it to boot using a grub4dos menu.lst
on NTFS it lacked something that it exoected be there

It had a directory I had no idea how to relate to in the code
