as far as I know there is not a known distro at all that has only FluxBox
well there is/was this
and this
or maybe this
all old mind you

although far from a regular here

strip out anything you can
i think ive said this before but
everybody uses different stuff
i bet i use a different final four (browser, filemanager, terminal, editor) than everybody else
apt-get is our friend
and smxi does all the hard work

i can add my beloved openbox back in
even though flux kinda grows on ya

anything having to do with better sound is ok in my book
and if thats pulse...

and once you get ikey's installer happening
when ikey gets ikey's installer happening

winner 8)

I think Debians installer may be made to work with VSIDO /SID in the future

now that is indeed some good news
it ain't pretty but the old text-expert is still my favorite

themes and tint and conky etc are easily changed by the end user

i too found it a bit  "shiny"
although i'm not sure thats the right word
polished is more like it
but that is a good thing, shows that someone knows their shit
as in:
    i'm surprised at how polished looking it is for a brand new distro

i just sanded off the bits i didn't like
like everyone will do

openbox and xfce are what they are
and what you want
you said from the beginning that this was a spin of what you used
run with it

seems like theres a couple i3 guys here if you want to add a tiler
im too lazy for tilers
install x-tile for when i want to goof around

i like my openbox
but arnault at livarp has an awesome flux setup that i have been using
i see vrkalak is now in the house
i believe is an expert in that field
(or is he just out standing in his field)

do what you do vast
you've got a couple great minds here in their respective disciplines
point people to all the themes and configs and let them have at it

not that i give a rats ass cause im on amd64
but if your BORED
whip up a 32 bit for folks
that seems to be the only real thing that i hear is missing

keep up the awesome job

then stayed in live
chrooted and installed lvm again
then restarted

hey hinto

don't know if its too late
installer doesn't see lvm

but if you set up in fstab after it'll work
i cant remember if lvm2 was there or i installed it

vast could probably help with that
