Hmmmm, yea 8gigs is small, my 7000ct toshiba only has 160MB RAM and 4GB hd
and I was using slackware-12.2 in it with XFCE4, but it was at like almost 3gigs used
even after slimming it down alot.
Slackware is very nice, but not for minimal installs
anyway, I have just installed Tinycore-2.0 to it and it runs Fast!
and you can install or un-install anything at anytime, the base is only 10MB!
and you add apps from there-and there's lots of apps too.
ok, I have alot of stuff I'm getting ready to release for tc-2.0
and so if you wanna check out tc I can tell you whatever you need to know.
TC doesn't "install" like a reg os, it is the culmination of what DSL was supposed
to be, a "nomadic" os that runs in ram(or not).
The man who created MyDSL is the founder of tc(not the creator of DSL).
So, it's cool and if you wanna check out my beta Portable-Tinycore-2.0
that would help both of us
Now, portable runs off portable-qemu, like dsl-embedded, so you don't gotta reboot pc, install anything, etc.
just download it, untar it and double-clk either "tcrun.sh" or "tcrun.bat"
yes, it runs on windows too.
This way you can check out my custom tc-2.0 without having to burn cd, install to usb, etc.
It's portable 'cause it plays via qemu and can go on usb, etc
you don't gotta have qemu installed either, it's already there.
it's safe, can't hurt your pc or anything, it's virtual!
so, here's screenshots of lappy and portable
And I need to know now if you wanna check out the portable, as I can't put link here
as it's beta, but if you, or any member wants to check it out, private
message me or send email to thepenandpaperATgmail.com
so, answer this post and we'll talk,
also, other good distro's for small hd are
and lots more too
