Thanks Dry Falls. What is your convention for listing downloads for each update? The download folder contains many more files than the ones you listed. Which ones should I download to have a complete system? Which ones to skip? Of course, older versions of isos and sfs files can be skipped. But what about the other sfs files? What about those that start with a Number"_"?

Hi Step. Tough question. "Convention" may be a bit strong a word because of the madness in my method! Actually, I haven't gotten around to a decent help file.

SFS-update (Tazoc's 'lhp-update') is a zenity program with a brief description of the sfs files available. It seems limited to around 60 entries. Browsing gdrive isn't really very friendly, but it's what I'm stuck with.

Basically, numbered sfs files load first, then caps alphanumerically. I've continued Tazoc's use of 5_DISTROVERSION.sfs for desktop enhancements -- like an adrive. Not critical but contains gimp, evince, xsane, extra fonts and themes plus some dependencies.

2_perpy contains perl and python for running without devx. (gcc, boost are also available as sfs files). Because it's slackware, some bit of perl, python and qt are required. For example, wpa-gui needs qt4. So these are included on the iso.

I wanted Lighthouse to be even more modular (makes it a lot easier to upgrade) but also, to trim down the base file to a more manageable size (for handling as well as memory usage) and remove old stuff which gets in the way. Proper package files (in /var/log) are essential when using gslapt manager, which is the preferred package manager in JL64.

Here's what I run for everything:

1 5_JL64-704.sfs
2 Backgrounds-JL64.sfs -eyecandy
3 Devx-JL64_704.sfs
4 Xfce-4.12.0-1-x86_64-16.sfs -powermanagement, parole, midori
5 compiz- -eyecandy compositor
6 ffmpeg-3.0.9-x86_64-lt.sfs -required by pmusic, among others
7 gstreamer-14.2.sfs -all gst files needed by xfce
8 icecat-52.3.0.en-US.linux-x86_64.sfs -big browser
9 qtlite-4.8.7-JL64-7.sfs (in /opt) [full qt4/5 is required by kde/plasma]
10 xscreensaver-5.37-x86_64-JL64.sfs -eyecandy

samba for networking (prone to upgrading)
NLS_base contains locales and internationalization tools so is necessary outside us
DOC has full documentationn, info, etc.
man_tools contain the man pages and manipulation tools
InstScripts will be moved to devx (/var/log/scripts) handy for removepkg.
kernel sources for building modules, etc.

zW32 are the 32bit libraries (taken from Peebee's lxpupsc) now separate from Wine. This will autoload if present.

Minimally, while it will run as a standalone, I'd recommend 2_perpy, gstreamer, qtlite and your choice of browser (although surf works pretty well). Xfce pretty much completes it.

ps. If you run an all-intel box like me, I found this kernel boot parameter seems to prevent freezing/loockup coming out of sleep:
