Simple n Perfect Linux Distro


Friends iam using linux from past few year and i had try mostly all distros (More that 1000+) but i never stuckup with a distro because one distro is good at KDE and another is Good at gnome iam waiting for a small perfect linux distro with the following featurs:

--Full core utils (example: ifconfig, mount etc...)
--GCC that compile KDE applications normaly
--Non modifed KDE desktop
--Latest version of KDE desktop
that's all

few days back i found slax live CD and is only 185MB in size. When i try it i did't find any developers pack. After some days while broswing there web i found another ISO of 235MB and i downloaed it i was very happy trying it because i had compliled more that 30 applications from www.kde-apps.org with out and problem.

iam saying all this because many people are wait for such a distro i think if u try it u will not leave it.

For any help on slax post it here are email me at abimanyu007@gmail.com

slackware isn't hard to install. Can you even install slax to the HDD?

You can get slax from slax.linux-live.org
Slax install is like windows installation first we have to setup partaion using CFDISk and format the paration using mkfs.ext3 or mkfs.xfs and run the program
mntall this will mount all patation in /mnt/*
lastly run slax-install that alll

example: (Example how i install slax)

$ cfdisk (and make partation)
$ mkfs.ext3 /dev/&&& &&& = partation
$ mntall
$ slax-install

that's all

any more questions?
