Subject description: slacko plus extras
 

PHATSlacko

Productivity enHanced And Tuned

Download PHATSlacko-5.5.02-ORIGINAL.iso @ a whopping 409MB.

Everything else is there, such as kernel source, md5, devx etc, plus kernel files if you want to woof up a slacko with k3.8.5-PAE. (Don't worry, non-PAE will be in ThinSlacko... soon).

First timers please view README.TXT.

Please get the delta for PHATSlacko-5.5.02 if you got PHATSlacko-5.5.00. It's only 94MB! [ Shocked ]


Changes of interest (from 5.5.00)

  • new 3.8.5 kernel (ID's as "3.5.8.1".. there is a reason for that ..more later)
  • Firefox is moved to the Adrive
  • JWM-715
  • samba is now switched off at first boot, run Simple Samba Setup (from Menu>Network) and it turns on.
  • bugfix for transmission and audacious, schemas were not compiled
  • added a notable omission to Adrive - Gimp!
  • new file ~/.packages/adrv-desc, has the puppy style package entries that petget will understand, this is for future development of PPM
  • f2fs aware GParted
  • Brand new f2fs-usb-installer (see Menu>Setup ..where the other installers are)
  • Important AUFS bugfix for sfs_load OTF sfs loader (shino), (peebee, test please?)


Have more PHAT fun!

VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVOLD VERSIONVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

Download 397 MB iso + md5 checksum, kernel source sfs (106 MB), headers pet. Use Slacko 5.5 devx.

Mirror ..many thanks dennis .. be ok! (iso and md5 only)

Torrent thanks to aarf

PHATSlacko - 5.5 is FATSlacko renamed and updated, so not to confuse with FatDog. This puplet is designed to enhance your productivity at
work or at home. It's based directly on Slacko 5.5

Minimum System Requirements
A pentium i686 class processor, with the PAE instruction, 2GHz single core, 1 GHz dual core, 1 GB RAM, preferably with swap.
No, it's not for old machines. It is designed for production. It runs well on a USB stick, using f2fs (aka Flash Friendly File System).

Features

  • LibreOffice 4.0.1 - full office suite, mimetypes and all included, click a word document it opens in Writer. presentations work too.
  • Samba 4.0 - for serving your files accross the network with the SMB (MS) protocol.
  • VLC 2.0.5 - default for watching DVD's and videos. Poke in a DVD, click the icon when it appears, VLC starts playing the DVD.
  • Audacious 3.3.4 - default for mp3's and CD's. Pmusic is still present of you prefer.
  • Kompozer - for HTML editing, right click any HTML file and you get the option to "open with" Kompozer.
  • Transmission 2.77 - latest version, with GTK+3 libraries, also required by Audacious.
  • JRE 1.7Update17 - no browser plugin enabled, more later on that.
  • Ipscan 0.3 - Angry IP Scanner, uses Java.


Under the hood

  • all new 3.8.2 PAE kernel with f2sf (flash friendly filesystem), btrfs and HFS support. HFS and btrfs work in Gparted.
    As of now f2fs is unsupported in Gparted, however all necessary tools are included to make a bootable USB with f2fs (manually).
    It's mostly Barry's DOT config with the softmac broadcom drivers added and the aforementioned filesystems.
  • "A drive" technology developed by jemimah with an idea from tazoc and updated by mavrothal.
    The A drive is an sfs residing on the CD (in the iso image). You can update it or roll your own. It must be named the same
    as the original.
  • It's labeled "SCSI" but I don't think there are many scsi drivers in there.
  • jre is built with a script from jpeps, thanks for that.
  • woof 20130310


Known Issues
Sfs are good but PPM is unaware of the libraries in an sfs. There fore you may end up getting deps you don't want or need. If you aren't sure ask! That's why we have the forum. Thanks to tazoc for reminding us of that.

Have fun!

Announcement 1st April. 2013 (no not a joke Rolling Eyes )

Future verions of PHATSlacko will only ship as deltas until such time a kernel upgrade is deemed necessary. This way, we can preserve bandwith.

-

There is a bug with LibreOffice Writer not opening on the desktop icon click.
Fix:
Code:
echo '!/bin/sh
exec libreoffice4.0 --writer "$@"' > /usr/local/bin/defaultwordprocessor
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/defaultwordprocessor
copy/paste that whole block to a terminal emulator.

VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVOLD STUFFVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV


For some fun with F2fs see the LINK

GParted is now f2fs friendly (1.1 MB pet)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ETP has an alternative way to get PHATSlacko running in f2fs HERE

PostPosted: Mon 11 Mar 2013, 03:31    Post subject: Working fine, streaming radio w/VLC & uploading files too!  

Yeah this is mighty fine! ATM I'm uploading the PHATSlacko iso to my host site (at Godaddy) and I'm listening to a live music broadcast (and it's only interrupted slightly). If it's okay, I got a good md5sum -- so if you think it's alright (...I only use 2% of my allotted bandwidth now) then here are two files presently available. If you don't roll this way, tell me and I'll remove them and edit this posting.

...here's my home dir...

http://www.beok.com/lnux/

...these are the two files currently available/mirrored...

...&
http://www.beok.com/lnux/PHATSlacko-5.5.00-SCSI.iso.md5.txt

EDIT Oh yes, all is running fine! I'm kind of new at some of this...

EDIT Hey mick01, I added the Easter full ISO & latest delta today, April 2nd. It's quite a powerful distribution. I tend to use lots of Puppy distros but this one is special, (i think Smile ).

I PHATtened it up a little more and did a remaster,then did a frugal
install of the remaster on an 8gb SDHC card that has 5 other remasters
on it.
Everything is working good other than the vlc pvr but that was also a
problem in an earlier pup with this kernel that Barry made.
Anyways, thanks for PHATslacko, when f2fs gets easier to use I'd like to
try out installing this remaster to a SDHC formatted that way, ext4 is working
well though.

Testing is fun.......
Still running PHATSlacko on the Athlon XP box..... no apparent problem except for the usb flash drives.Tried to run on a newer quad-core box..... got to the desktop, correctly detected and mounted a flash drive (and unmounted) then froze upmoments later.Hard poweroff.Tried a second time.....same result.
Md5 was verified as well as the burn itself.

I cannot duplicate this. I tried an assortment of flash drives and they were all detected correctly.

Well Mick,

You really don't have to change the name. Discerning user will immediately see that FATSlacko is a "fatter" version of Slacko and has nothing to do with Fatdog, FatWary or iFat Smile
That being the case, this release is good one and would meet people who want everything out of the box without adding pets or sfs

cheers!
