Cons: ‘something bad has happened’

This version of Slackel was far less successful than the KDE one. The disk is not live and the installer is the traditional keyboard-based one. Installation was successful, but when I rebooted, I was told ‘something bad has happened’: it turned out to be a segmentation fault. Working from the command line, I tried a complete update, re-installing the video driver, and re-installing xorg-server, to no avail. I could have re-installed the whole system using the core option (CLI) and then added X and Openbox from the repository, but the idea didn’t appeal.
