DistroWatch has DreamStudio 11.10 for download.
11.10 could refer to 2011 October
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=dreamstudio

Quote:
Dream Studio is an Ubuntu-based distribution containing tools to create stunning graphics, captivating videos, inspiring music, and professional websites. Some of the included and pre-configured applications include Cinelerra (a powerful non-linear video editor), Ardour (a professional digital audio workstation), CinePaint (a tool for motion picture frame-by-frame retouching), Blender (a 3D graphics application), Inkscape (a vector graphics editor), Synfig Studio (a vector-based 2D animation software), Kompozer (a complete web authoring system), and many others.


I am using my simplified code that I got inspired to use
by d4p while he had a more complicated one that did not
work on my gear.

title dreamstudio_11.10
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /dreamstudio_11.10.iso
kernel /dreamstudio_11.10/casper/vmlinuz rw file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/dreamstudio_11.10.iso noeject noprompt
initrd /dreamstudio_11.10/casper/initrd.lz


Sadly DS use Unity? which is not so user friendly.
In System Tools I fail to find Terminal or Console
so they has renamed it to something else?

So I can not set Swedish keyboard map.

Due to the size of the program it is very slow to use
on my small 1GB Netbook. But everything seems to work.

The biggest surprise is that despite Ubuntu claim them have
plugged the ?Bug? that I thought I did find?

Maybe I misunderstood but I can still do things that
Ubuntu usually don\t want a noob to be able to do
without using sudo and su and whatever they fancy.

So that is a good thing for me.

So to all clever guys and girls out there.
What is the name for the Terminal Console CLI thing?
on DreamStudio?

"Just don't expect to run SolusOS frugally from NTFS..."

It works fine on NTFS, just I got a message "volume is dirty" while booting.

"Not so with Solus OS. Imagine a full colour, luxurious Gnome desktop, using about 119mb of Ram at bootup... Everything working out-of-the-box and amazingly fast!"

I guess Austrumi v2.4.8 is amazingly fast. It can boot even faster than slitaz.
The iso size is under 220 Mb, ram usage is 115Mb

Are we talking about the same thing?

As I vaguely remember you have the menu.lst on another partition than
where you have the iso that you boot with?

Even on USB? The usb may be in ntfs but the menu.lst may be on a ext2 formatted partition on same usb or on the hd?

My body tells me you even have three partitions?

While when most of us talk about using frugal install we talk about using the HD that is formatted in ntfs and having the menu.lst on same partition
as the iso is placed upon and boot from.

And why don't you give the code?

So if one want to boot Solus what to put there instead?

No problem, just change (0xff) to (hd32)

Grub4dos is still the best bootmanager.
It support NTFS, VFAT, Ext2/3 & CDFS.



So what to use for Solus?
http://solusos.com/
suppose I download SolusOS-DEV-063.iso

title SolusOS using iso boot for SolusOS-DEV-063.iso
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /SolusOS-DEV-063.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /SolusOS-DEV-063.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
kernel /live/vmlinuz live-media-path=/live iso-scan/filename=/SolusOS-DEV-063.iso quiet splash union=aufs
initrd /live/initrd.lz

I tested four different codes and one of the error was that

Error 60 File must be in one contiguos file area
From poor memory.
The other error where something I failed to know what it says well enough ti remember it.

So would be nice if you tell us how to get a contigious file area or what code you use.

Solus being debian maybe one can learn from Sickgut how he boot PussyLinux? What other Debian does boot on NTFS?

I have to travel today so I can only read your answers late afternoon local time.
Hope somebody give code for solus

Subject description: Thinking to make new distro with this name
 

Hi, everybody!
This is my first post-reply since joined the forum and one month of using Puppy Lucid 5.2.8. Yesterday, was a bad day by all means of the word. A virus appeared from no where when I was using a trusted WindowsXPSP3 application and ruined my world. I swore to use Puppy from now on and if I could have time, I will make a distro called: "God Damn Windows".

So, welcome to open world! open source! this is the real life of freedom and happiness!

CHEERS!!!

Alhumaidy:

Welcome to puppy.

Many of these things can be fixed easily enough with Hiren's and the
Falcon boot cds...and of course Puppy.

Have a look at my How To Fix Windows pages.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58305

Hitman Pro is good...allows a one time free fix.

Use Majorgeeks 4 downloads....never >> cnet.

http://majorgeeks.com/

Keep away from Nortons, Mcafee etc.

Chris.

Did someone ask about a small version of puppy that they could customize? Am I going slack in the head here? I know I saw it somewheres, so my response lands here:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Barebones

PupNGo with GUI is only about 8 Mb... but I haven't tried it yet

Subject description: Vector Linux Light 7.0 rc1
 

I installed Vector Linux Light 7.0 rc1 to my eeepc701 using my usb cd/dvd drive.
It's got the gslapt package manager which works well for installing applications and doing updates.
It's a tight fit on the 4gb hard drive which only has 257mb free now.
It's working well so far.
