I can't find ".fluxbox" anywhere cause MC can't see hidden files or what?
I'm gonna have to install a graphical file manager that has the "show hidden files" option-yes?

Ok, I'll try it.
What's up Repo; my brother in the Sweetleaf, where have you been lately?

I got "Portable-Slackware" working with XFCE4 and now Fluxbox version too.
The portable, symbiant OS is here!

Runs independent of file system type(FAT32/EXT2/etc), runs on Windows and Linux, and also runs off USB!

Most important, just like an installed OS, it saves everything back to the vhd.

I'm uploading the 3.2GB XFCE4 version now, no errors or anything; comes up at used-2.2GB of 3.2GB, so still space left.
Put it on a 4GB USB and roll.

Did you read about it/download it?
Repo, nobody's told me whether they've actually wittnessed it saving, etc-Can you download it and check it out?
It is the KDE version, so it has little errors, but works good

I noticed you did a lot of work
I have downloaded it and tried it, but didn't install on usb.
Looks ok, but I didn't try to safe it, because I can't get the network to work in qemu.
Perhaps I need to create my own qemu, so networking is setup.
Also it is slow, perhaps there isn't enough memory assigned.
Will look further if I have some time.

About the website, in the download section you still have links to the page where you copied the layout from.
If you click on

you get redirected to
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...small/?C=N;O=D
So best to remove the link in the source from the page.

Yea, the KDE version is bogged down I think.
The XFCE4 version runs good and I installed dillo and it runs alot faster than firefox.

Oh, networking works fine on mine-I configured the network setup for DHCP, so maybe change it?

You can adjust the memory with the script( -m 256 ), you know that....

you know how to make one Repo with portable qemu? Why didn't you tell me that and I've been searching for Like 3 months to put this all together-no one told me I could do this...or how, but it works!
Just edit a file and shutdown, then when starting the edited file will be there.

I tried DHCP
Perhaps it also need to be setup in the conf files, no idea.
No network card was found.

It is setup to work on your computer, difficult to make it work on all computers,
I is difficult to make it portable to different hardware.
I tried it as a newbie would do :-) I have 0 experience with slack.

OH, no Repo, I didn't build the portable qemu, nor did I design it.
I did however install slack into the vhd with qemu on this computer; but it still has internet access on my other computer and on my brother's XP too.

OK, so, I'm sorry, I will post the complete(I hope) instructions here in the slack forum under "Roll your own Portable-Slack!".
I haven't posted it yet cause still working on it, but will now...

It will be a long post so come back in 30min cool?

I also forgot to mention lxappearance for changing Gtk themes.

Oh, and if you use a panel like lxpanel I recommend making .desktop files for software you want listed that does not already have a .desktop file. Put them in ~/.local/share/applications. It really is not that much work.


linus72,

I'll have to get back to you about the screenshots, etc when I am on another box. I won't post them here, though, as they would clutter the thread.
