ClutchOS v12.2 A Pure Slackware 12.2 Live CD/USB with Persistence!
why another slackish distro?
Mine (will be) better than most:)
Please try it before you criticize it
It is quite unique in many ways
I really did it to show how easily one can make their
own 12.2 install into a live distro
So, it is a proof-of-concept thing:)
Desktop: My own JWM creation heavily based off Vector's JWM
Display manager: Slim from Slackbuilds
Packages: All pkg's are 12.2 slack, sbopkg's, and slapt-get/gslapt from Slacky, some others converted from absolute/salixos/source.
I custom built the JWM desktop, systray-volume-control, and many from-scratch scripts.
Heres some of the pkg's
Games: Xgalaga sbopkg
Graphics: Gimp, Imagemagick
Office: Abiword, Gaiksaurus, Xcalc
Multimedia: Mplayer, XMMS, Audacious, Alsamixergui, Pulsaudio
Misc: Roxterm,rox-filer, PCMANFM, lxterminal, lxtask, leafpad
xarchiver, catfish, lxappearance, nitrogen
System: Gparted, ddrescue, testdisk, Gnome net tools, WICD
Network: Firefox, dillo, xchat, gftp, grsync
also has all the make/build libs too
Hard drive install:
Not yet; I have made a installer based off Vector but still testing it
It runs just like Slax and has all the features(persistence,etc)
Will be releasing it here in the morning:)
here I am running off live usb persistent:)
its 640MB iso, easy transition to usb too
be ready in mornin:)
its ready for download
move mouse pointer away from logout button after clicking it
Slim sometimes takes a sec to load if you logout
Very very stable Slack!
I should be releasing also the slack 12.2 pkg's
I made for it, and I'm gonna give the detailed "How To"
on making your own!
I also included a slaxsave.zip, just unzip it somewhere, unzip the
persistence file size you want, copy the slaxsave.dat to usb or hdd partition, and boot with the persistent boot choice
remember to edit syslinux.cfg if you put slaxsave.dat anywhere besides
root of usb or hdd (/)
Some more info:
Kernel: LLS 18.104.22.168 (slax)
Build: LLS 6.3.0
no users made.
Heres the md5sum
Now at Softpedia too
heres the slax boot cheatcodes which also apply to ClutchOS
on ClutchOS isolinux.cfg/syslinux.cfg I used the code "noauto"
as I never liked slax's automount all drives at boot!
so, it wont automount anything
Just use pcmanfm to mount partitions,etc
Please feel free to ask any questions...
First, stop bumping. It's not nice in any way.
And why is it based on 12.2? I easily made a Slackware 13.0-based LiveCD (the same distribution that you are stealing the website from).
your not too nice either there junior
stop being a troll
and why dont you share with us how you made your 13.0 livecd?
A troll is someone who criticizes without a reason, and I have a reason: bumping.
First, let's start with the kernel. I'm using the original script provided by Tomas M on the SLAX ftp, I modified it a little bit.
Basically, I have package lists for every lzm module. Then, a script installs all the packages in a given package list in a temporary directory and converts them to lzm module, which gets placed in the given directory of the LiveCD root (let's say linvo/base).
Then, everything in the /boot directory of the 01-base module gets moved to the liveCD root (which is basically a pre-made skeleton).
Some kernel modules also get copied to the initrd root (aufs, squashfs, fuse).
The initrd I use is a standart initrd generated by Linux-Live scripts with heavily modified linuxrc and slightly patched liblinuxlive. I don't re-run the Linux-Live scripts every time I build, I just use the same initrd ;)
That's basically the process. Contact me if you are interested in the build scripts and so on.
PS I'm using the old 12.2 kernel in 2009.1, but I already have a ISO with the new kernel.
I didnt know what bumping was anyway
thought you were calling me a Q%$#r or something
In what way is Linvo Arch associated?
My process involved actually installing the 22.214.171.124 kernel,etc
from LLS and building it all from scratch including JWM, and some other stuff.
Does Linvo have the remaster-livecd-yourself stuff like Vector?
thats pretty cool too
how does one determine how to make the modules like yours/slax?
like 001-base, etc as opposed to default LLS build?
I use a lot of packages from Arch in the new version I develop. I mean, I use the PKGBUILDS, not the precompiled packages. I pre-compile them on a Linvo base.
It doesn't have a remaster thing, but there is a slax module for that and it can be used. I'm not sure if it will work.
I make the modules manually, I have defined packages for every module:
I would love to check out your scripts,etc
especially any xorg auto config stuff
also, your new kernel
is it slack's kernel or what?
Last time I looked this was still a Slackware forum.
If you want to start a new forum here at LQ for your new distro(s?) then by all means, go ahead.
The kernel that I'm using for 2009.1 is built using the Slax scripts and slax configuration. The kernel I'll be using in 2010.3 is an original kernel from kernel.org + zenkernel patches. If you are interested, I'll upload it before the release.
I am now trying to compile the default slack 13 generic kernel with aufs and squashfs
will it work?
definitely interested in the zen kernel too
is it the same one as fanthoms at slax forum?
Yes, you can have squashfs with lzma compression only with zenkernel patches in newer kernels.
And BTW, SquashFS 4 with LZMA rocks! It feels much much faster than squashfs 3. I'm not sure on that however, because it may be just because the new squashfs-tools work with both of my processor cores.
BTW isn't this thread supposed to be moved, like AlienBOB said?
