^ Which one? I like FreeBSD - mainly because it supported my hardware - NetBSD was pretty good, too. OpenBSD install failed for me.

I think I'll stick with this Fvwm setup - no titles on browaer, or terminals:

I've tried FreeBSD a few times. And PCBSD once and that was enough for me.

EDIT: just install FreeBSD in a vm, simple enough. I have sudo working and want to install xfce. If that goes ok, I'll install it on my netbook and see whether I can get the wifi working. ;D

Dizzie, what exactly are those sexy launcher icons in the tint2?

I do not believe in any God nor do I believe there is a heaven, but I do believe I will sit in a room with Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix and play with them.

@VastOne
Tint2rc:
Code: [Select]
launcher_item_app = /home/dizzie/.config/apps/medit.desktop

medit.desktop
Code: [Select]
Icon=/home/dizzie/.config/apps/medit.png

And if you ask me if I can remember where I got them from?

No, but I can make an archive of my icon folder for you

Checking out the Porteus (Slackware based) live CD. Slackware is my other distro of choice -



pretty smooth; should make a nice rescue CD. Boots into X or console; as well as loading into RAM like Puppy.

I have always wanted to give slack a try PackRat, I might just have to do that. Porteus does look inviting

I built Porteus with Xfce and it still fits on a CD. Not a hybrid that can be directly burnt to a usb stick, but one can be created manually. Not designed to be installed on a HD.

If you want to try Slackware in a VM or an actual install, I recommend Salix OS (or it's sister project Slackel which is based on Slackware Current - the testing branch). Salix has a fluxbox edition and good selection of apps; their slapt-get repo is pretty complete.

Why not just experience the original !

Slackware is still my primary distro. VSIDO is a nearly displacing primary. However I still feel somewhat drawn to the basic unix-like simplicity of Slackware, and how much I am in control of all aspects of my operating system, more so than with Debian, which I still do love.
