4MLinux
 
Hello,

I would like to inform you that a new (mini) Linux distribution has just been released:
www.4mlinux.com
It was designed in the way, which makes it easier to build your own system (even from scratch). Please refer to the second chapter of our help file for more detailed information:
http://www.4mlinux.com/help.txt

Looking forward to your comments
4mlinux@gmail.com

I have just downloaded 4mlinux.
Unfortunately I can't use it as I don't know the user login and password.
I have read the documentation, but alas no mention of these.

@tonhou: you can login as root without password.

@zk1234: How do I get ethernet working in virtualbox?

@zk1234: How do I get ethernet working in virtualbox?

Hello,

4MLinux supports wifi and (USB) modems only, but ...

From our help:
"Nearly none of Slackware applications will work under
4MLinux (and vice versa), but nothing stands in the way
to use Slackware kernel modules. This is the easiest way
to add support for additional devices."

Step by step:
-> download your driver:
ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/slackware/s...smp-i686-2.txz
-> put your driver somewhere in /lib/modules/2.6.29.6-smp/kernel/net
-> run 'depmod'
-> edit /etc/interface (I guess: eth0)
and finally run 'restart' command (this will restart the entire system without rebooting your machine).
You should be connected now.

The question is if the above makes sense when 4MLinux is run from LiveCD :-)

1.1 M like Maintenance.
What is the first 'M' for? This is the main function of
4MLinux (one can say: 'for maintenance linux'). Let's
suppose that your windows refuses to start. You want to
make a backup of some important data. 4MLinux should be
able to help you.
What sense makes this if your Linux isn't even able to use ethernet-connection out of the box?

When you build 25 MB Live CD you have to choose something. It is impossible to include everything. Wireless networking is supported by nearly all laptops, netbooks and a huge part of desktops.

Thank you for your remarks,

Wired networking is supported by all laptops, netbooks and all desktops.
Maybe you should have a look at Slitaz Linux, 30 MB with X and network support. Why dump you down your Linux to 25 MB if you burn it on a CD (700 MB), even a business-card CD has at least 30MB, up to 100 MB?
No offense here, you made good work, but I don't understand your design decisions.

BETA versions of 4MLinux 4.0 Have been released:

4MLinux-4.0-core.iso
This will be a core system (4.8 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 4.0 series. The system includes: Linux 3.4.2, glibc 2.14.90, and Busybox 1.20.1. All 4MLinux-4.0 applications have been compiled under Fedora 16 (x86/32-bit/SMP).

4MLinux-4.0.iso
The main features are: maintenance (4MLinux Backup Scripts and Clam AntiVirus 0.97.5), multimedia (MPlayer SVN-r34993-4.6.2, FFmpeg Git-0.10.2, and xine 1.2.2), mini-server (FTP, HTTP, SSH, and SFTP), and mystery (meaning a collection of small Linux games). The FOX toolkit 1.6.45 with X File Explorer 1.32.5 are also included. Both Ethernet (including WiFi) and dial-up (including mobile phones and fast USB modems) networking are supported. Basic 3D acceleration (via X.Org X11R7.6 with Mesa 8.02) can be enabled for Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD/ATI video cards. The size of the 4MLinux ISO image is circa 50 MB.

4MLinux-4.0-allinone-edition.iso
The development target for this release has been defined as follows: the relatively small operating system (ca 65 MB LiveCD) must include the newest stable Wine (i.e. 1.4.1) that should be able to open full-screen flash movies (e.g. from YouTube) in the newest stable Firefox (i.e. 14.0.1). 4MLinux-4.0-allinone-edition BETA passes this test for many Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD/ATI video cards. The automatic downloading and installing of some additional components (e.g. Opera 12.01 and LibreOffice 3.5.5) is also possible.
