Any new small (50-100MB) Linux distro's?
 
Good-morning-just wondering if there were any New, but small distro's made recently?
I already know of DSL-4.4.10/Puppy-4.2/Slitaz/Goblinx-Micro/TinyMe
Thanks

Try Slax. Not new but my favourite Live / Light distro so far. imho, better than Knoppix. And based on Slackware.

USB and ISO versions available. But it's 190 MB minimum. It's customizable (at download time as well) to have as many packages as you want.

Yes-I didn't mention Slax-Can Slax be installed to HD yet or No?

I think it can, problem is that Slax is compressed. Thus it'll end up taking more space once it's installed.
Or you could installed it compressed, but simply copying over stuff and running bootinst.sh. This usually is used to install Slax to a USB-stick or SD-cards, but should work equally well with hard-drives, although I don't know if there's any limitation on the FS used.
But then you probably still have the limitation if it being a read-only system.

Yes, this thread on the slax forum discusses it - http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action...parentID=30926

No. Slax is read-only only if it's on a CD or read-only media. The USB version is writable as well, keeps track of your settings and you can install additional modules and packages. So I would assume that the installed HD version is writable.

persistent changes will be described here: - slax is readonly - usb slax is writable - when you reboot incorrectly, changes may be broke - there is no option to not save changes - there is an option to start slax fresh without changes
