@Lyfrost probably yes. For C/C++ programming, use devx sfs. The link was in the first post of this thread. And also download dev files when needed.

@belham2

Not sure what your audience is for the USB sticks, but modern PC's (laptops) often require firmware for WIFI, and have nothing other than WIFI (or Bluetooth).
The size of the WIFI firmwares often exceed the size of the linux minimal image. And without firmwares, a browser does not have much functionality on laptops.

Look at Tinycore: the core is 17 Mbyte, with WIFI and all the firmwares it exceeds 100Mbyte (*) and 4 simple GTK1 window managers.

I will follow your challenge, but doubt it is usefull for anything other than older desktops. I really hope you succeed though !!!
Please keep SFS-on the fly option in.

Volhout.

New X-Slacko Slim iteration released

Changes:
* New initrd. The initrd is based from the X-Slacko 4.2 initrd. It is more user friendly than before, it has improved resume from hibernation support, sfs mountpoint logging, and multisession logging for easy troubleshooting.

* Problem on loading multisession is fixed

* Bug on edit-initramfs on xz compression is fixed.

PostPosted: Wed 11 Oct 2017, 02:40    Post subject: video driver  

Dear mistfire,

Is it possible for you to include 'modesetting_drv.la' or 'modesetting_drv.so' into Xslacko Slim.
This is the video driver needed for Intel Atom N2600/2800 video.

It is located (in previous XSlacko's) in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
Maybe you can use the one from R54 (slightly different kernel 4.12.2 versus 4.12.8 in R58).

Dear Regards.

Volhout

Okay I will try to include that. Intel N2600/2800 uses intel GMA 3600 but it works through fbdev driver?

Worst yet!
Quote:
White oblong - FATAL ERROR.
pup...... .sfs not found
Select SAVE FILES for diagnostic purposes (there aren't any - didn't run)
...
GO TO PROMPT for advanced purposes (no point!)
...
...
0. Save temp files (there aren't any)
1. Go to prompt
2.Reboot! (why? in desperation!)

None of the comments have any point if it doesn't run further than the opening boot screen.

Sorry.

More: No idea where it all goes wrong, but r59 DOES contain xslacko_4.2/puppy_xslacko_4.2.sfs and
xslacko_4.2/zdrv_xslacko_4.2.sfs
