From its outward appearance, siduction may appear to be just another Debian-based Linux distribution, but don't let that fool you. Here be dragons!

I have put together a few short, but essential, tips for newcomers wishing to install and use siduction which is a full rolling Linux release based on Debian Unstable (sid).

Tip #1:
As an absolute minimum, it is essential to read the siduction Quick Start Guide before even thinking about proceeding further.

Posted 03-02-2015 at 04:01 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled an Android x86 system (KitKat 4.4.4), which can run live (from CD) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer, HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions.

New PC:-
Blank HDD - the shop actually used FreeDos to test the HDD
& gave a leaflet on how to Erase that & install W7.

But- that didn't happen

so into the DvD drive went a Puppy4 cd & thus create four new partitions & erase the FreeDos

and then:- the Mepis11 onto sda3 & /home on sda6
followed by Mint10 onto sda1 & /home onto sda6
with sda4 in reserve, for future use.

works well ...
