Hmm...how long is a piece of string?
I would think I should have something quite stable by the end of the year.

Please give it a try and tell me what you think so far...
It has the refracta installer included if you have a VM to give it a whirl.

I logged in and did a startx and I am into Awesome

I tried running gparted from the menu, I always setup my partitions before the installer. It would not start from the menu.  It started fine from terminal and from within the installer, just wanted you to know

@ mrneilypops

I have tried your version of the refracta installer and it worked as it should.  When I tested it, it did not allow me to create a  new user.

Did you alter the installer at all?  If not, can you link me the version you have?

Thanks

Hey VastOne,
Thanks for the testing, I really appreciate your feedback on my project.  8)
I will investigate gparted....
As for the installer I will check with Mr.Refracta...
Thanks for your patience and remembering that this is project is 'alpha' for me and the distrolette.

I will try and keep you updated my friend.  ;)

EDIT: I thought about gparted...common problem...gparted appears in  the menu but does not start on many different distros..
EDIT: i have not altered the installer as of yet...
The only answer I have is;

Code: [Select]
gksu gparted

mrneilypops...
Installed your Alpha distrolette and have decided to give the tilers another chance.  The install went fine, but personally I think a newer user (which quite possibly isn't even your intended target group) would be a bit overwhelmed.

It installed for me without any problems/troubles what so ever.  I did it of course in a VM using VirtualBox.  So far you have a nice looking distrolette as you call it working pretty great in its Alpha stage!  Nice work.  Including the copycat themes was a real plus...

@Jedi
You are my hero!  8)
Thanks so much for the testing and yes the distrolette is not intended for new users.
I am an awesome fanboy but still learning and this project is part of the process.

@Vastone
Thanks for your valued input also  8)
This might help in creating a new user;

Is it 32 bit or 64 bit ?

There is no indication on any of your sourceforge projects.

New release of Puppy Linux -

Been a while. My favorite rescue distro now comes in 64-bit; based on Slackware 14.1 -

Hi there Snap,
Puppy linux is built using binary packages from another distributions. This is done using a build tool called 'Woof'. What this means is that you can built your own version of Puppy linux using Woof. Currently Woof supports Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, Arch, T2, Mageia and of-course Puppy. Ubuntu and Slackware based versions are official versions but there are countless other spins-respins out there developed by community. Here is a useful link,

Puppy Derivatives

Cheers!!!

Thanks for clarifying, hackerdefo. Puppy has been always a bit confusing to me. It's like a thousand different spins out there. Also in my few tries with Puppy the rox thing put me away soon. Cannot get used to it. That's the reason why I'm never too tempted besides I find it quite interesting.
