Hi mikeslr!

Start with either BionicDog, or --perhaps better considering the later step--stretchdog


i avoided bionic cuz it's relatively huge, and avoided Stretch cuz it's called "Preview" on git. But ok, i'm downloading bionic and stretch now. I just finished trying out XenialDog, MintDog, Jessie, trinitydog, and MintPup-Trusty. I'll post my impressions to a separate thread shortly (hint, trinity is the only one i like).

Don't worry about the Window Manager for the moment.


window manager is on my short list. Before i make a time investment, I have to know a distro supports xfce (or now, Trinity) without much/any implementation (i don't mean customizing, that's fine. I just mean effort to make it work at all).

unique tools built into the DebianDogs, including those relating to remastering. Saintless was very conscientious about providing solid documentation, and fred has continued to do so.

well that's awesome, and thank you saintless! Tho' his documentation here is confusing, cuz he says to use root to give boot as puppy-user.... Confused

....9 pages on rcrsn51's starter kit thread is packed full of useful information.

grrp... hrm... um... did you say 9 pages? See note above about "without much/any implementation" Very Happy Mikeslr, i understand you're trying to get me to be a puppy dev, but not likely. Apologies to everyone that i simply want to be a user (and puppy proselytizer Smile

there appears to be very little advantage in an Ubuntu based operating system over a debian

i'm not partial, and we can add slack to teh list.

unlike you using apt isn't something to which I've grown accustomed.

me neither, actually. I have used it a bunch no probs, but, when i share my final result with non-geek friends, i want them to have a GUI package manager, not command-line.

THX!

Hi johnywhy,

I think what you saw was 'Stretch' on the DebianDog organization.
Back then it was a preview, but later named 'StretchDog', see:
https://debiandog.github.io/doglinux/zz02stretchdog.html
Or:
https://github.com/fredx181/StretchDog

There's a Stretch starter kit I made with full XFCE (no Openbox) here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=994600#994600
(but it's minimal, need to install e.g. browser, mediaplayer yourself)

Or, as mikeslr already said, build with XFCE option using the mklive-stretch script, then you can add whatever you want.

Can't see why it's confusing, what saintless means is to change "-f root" to "-f puppy" on that line in /etc/inittab

Have fun with all the testing !

Fred

many thx, Fred. Wow! StretchDog is now officially my favorite linux! It's the smallest, lightest xfce "real" linux i've seen. Very well put together!

xtahr is my favorite "unreal" xfce linux. Tahr idles about half the RAM of Stretch.

now if we could just make StretchDog as light on RAM as xtarh Smile
see http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1003741#1003741

i may try to roll my own stretch Surprised

Liquorix kernel does not have aufs included, so cannot be used with the porteus-boot style.
