PostPosted: Mon 14 Apr 2014, 03:09    Post subject:  PROOF OF CONCEPT: SLAX + PUPPY  

After having resorted to using Puppy after a long time, I am a big fan of the speed that puppy brings with it.

However, I also equally like the eyecandy and ease of use of the KDE.

Way back when I was a Puppy v1 user I had forked SLAX KDE packages to work within puppy.

So this time I have used the same concepts to get KDE running in puppy.

DISCLAIMER: I am only a novice, this is an experiment. So, please may use of any instructions given in this post in a fresh frugal install with a blank save file.

Step 1: download LXpup 14.03 (I have made the install in compuzpup 14.03, however had to disable it from .xinitrc as it was not working) properly) or stock puppy slacko 5.7

Step 2: download latest slax zip

Step 3: make a frugal install of puppy with a blank save file

Step 4: extarct the slax to the home folder (/sda2 in my case)

Step 5: copy the 03-kdeps.sb, 04-kde.sb, 05-kapps.sb to the puppy folder, rename them to .sfs, and install in that order using the sfs load on the fly

Step 6: if you are using compiz pup disable the compiz start section in the .xinitrc section

Step 7: reboot

Step 8: logout to promt, then type xwin startkde


it works, even the puppy taskbar icons are showing, networking works but there are glithces, that why is is proof of concept only


Request? are there any takers to make a SLAX + PUPPY SLACKO = "SLAPPY" and also rewire every thing in the kde sfs so that it run smoothly

Sorry for no screenshot

This looks good. I would sure use SLAPPY, if you build it.

I would try it too.
But what does it require as to overhead. What I want to know is the estimated minimum specifications one would need to be able to use it normally without having to wait on execution of an application.
