Try this pup,

I hope you'll like it.
Cheers!!!

that's a nice puppy build.

Do you know if the puppy frisbee network manager has been ported, or is otherwise available for, debian-based systems?

You can give a shot at compiling it. Here are the required sources,

You'll also need 'wpasupplicant' and 'dhcpcd' installed. Let us know if it compiles and works. And yes modify the frisbee source to use the notification application of your choice it defaults to 'xpupsay' which is another puppy specific thing. According to jemimah, author of frisbee, frisbee could be modified to use the splash program of choice.
Cheers!!!

I'll give that a shot - maybe later this weekend. American holiday of Thanksgiving today, then a fishing trip.

Speaking of Slackware, they've come out with a live version. You can check it out without the need to install.

And it appears Slackware has moved to eudev - no systemd. First time I have read/seen anything official in that regard. Appears they will still go with the BSD-style init, but openrc will be an option.

...Mayhap I can find time to get openrc as an alternative for VSIDO

^ maybe a HowTo if anyone wants to switch. I can see where making a switch will send you to Dependency Hell next time you try an upgrade.

I wonder if Slackware is getting close to a release; 14.1 is just over 2 years old now. I think Patrick V. had some health issues which may have slowed things down, but maybe a Slackware 15.0 this spring (keeping fingers crossed).

So long as sysvinit is alive and well it will be doable.  I just switched over a test x32 build to openrc and sysvinit all booted well without issues

The interesting thing is the network right now.. it still is using the systemd created enp0s3 interface which may be all right in itself, just a different standard than wlan0 and eth0

I am sure I can change back to those standards now and would have to fix a few scripts but it looks very doable

Got a fully functional x32 with network interfaces back to eth0 and wlan0 and the vsido-exit scripts working...

very interesting indeed, no systemd and full upgrades and builds

all seems fine

I would love to see a systemd free Vsido. That's only my own wish, but I'm a dreamer.

Whew... 1.8 gig?  That is a huge one... Will dload it a bit later to look at it

What installer?  What build method? Do you not have an x64 machine?  Using V-Box you can build using x64 and x32

1.7 gig because, 1) it has some extra apps, 2) it is squashed by gz, rather than xz. With xz, it would be 1,4 gig. Build using a simple method; clearing up username, hostname, localtime etc from /etc, clearing up unnecessary files from /var, leaving /dev, /home, media, /mnt, /proc, /run, /sys and squashing the rest. Installer is adapted lmde one.

My machine is 64bit. This 32 bit install was there for a long time, starting from wheezy, moved to sid.
