I got a celeron-d running

•January 16, 2011 • 3 Comments

I have a celeron-d dell desktop running now. (Thanks to Fred Potter, who since it to me.) This means i can at least make slitaz iso and updates to slitaz.This is only cause slitaz is better on a celeron-d with 512mb of ram.

Since archiso-live had 4 months break between the last 2 releases this shouldn’t cause much of a problem.  I hope to have a new desktop by then. I plan on get this one here. There are a lot good reviews on it.

Also the isos are hosted on a friend’s account. He was willing to give my host have sourceforge killed my hosting with them. The isos will still be available.

The problem with my (died) main computer:

The problem i had with my main computer (the one that died) was the power button was not working. Try clean it but that didn’t work. Try adding new power supply. I trying too hard and bent some thing on the motherboard. I also couldn’t get that damn power supply out without remove everything.

Since i disconnect most the power lines and most likely damaged the motherboard. I will not trust this system anymore. I think it will be better in get a new system since the price to fix these problem could cause like half of what a new system will cost.

I hope this explained my problem better.


My computer is dead

My computer died on monday. This means the project can’t be continued for the moment. Thanks to all those that used my projects.

The only way to speed this up is though donation. But i don’t i have a pay pal account to help with this.  So that may not happen.

Anyways i hope this explains my problem with continuing this project. Best of luck to everyone out there.

PS I’m writing this from a acer one.

Archiso-live 20110104 Release

•January 5, 2011 • 11 Comments

I’m back on archlinux for the moment.

Here are the changes since last release:

* Added support for xz into kernel. So now squashfs+xz is supported instead of squashfs+lzma. You should be able to use unsquashfs to uncompress any lzma modules you may have.

* Go here if you want to use virtualbox.

Updated on around 11:55PM EST time on 20110104.

Here is the iso, md5, and package list.

New project: modular-slitaz

•December 3, 2010 • 11 Comments

This is a new project i started working on about 3 months ago. The reason it took this long was cause i need to update and fix alot of problems with slitaz. Mostly cause alot of package wore like 1 year old  or more in some cases.

My modular-slitaz is different in that it makes slitaz more stable and flexable. I have some bugs on my system like for ex.

* my software clock is drifting by about 7 mins a day. Maybe more. I don’t know if this my scripts or slitaz. I believe this is slitaz.

* mounting hard drivers may get weird stuff. I only got this once but when mount the my sda3 drive i think i got some system files that are in like in proc or sys. I believe this maybe cause i made my own system settings for user and group files.

The main features with modular-slitaz:

* alot of packages for alot less in size. Like under 400mb.

* Games like warzone2100 and frozen-bubble in the iso.

* Added virtualbox-ose, blender, lmms, hydrogen, pidgin, firefox, clamav and bunch more.

* Also added a mirror modules of most of http://hg.slitaz.org/ repos.

Here is the iso, md5, and package list.

The scripts can be look at here.

PS I started using slitaz so i can maybe make a all in one livecd/source dvd with auto build bot scripts. Archlinux keeps on moving more to binary source that can’t allow me to make mass backup of all Archlinux source packages with makeworld –allsource -c /home/arch/sources/core or something. Granted i think archlinux does alot of things better. Slitaz is no way better then archlinux when it comes just being able to just compiling things (ex. new gnome-doc-utils is a bitch on slitaz). I hope this helps people understand why i moved to slitaz.

Archiso-live 20100825 Release

•August 25, 2010 • 48 Comments

Changes since last release:

* Updated kernel Its not zen patch anymore. This was cause there wore problems compiling the kernel with -j3. Also this is now archlinux compatible (again) since i only added squashfs+lzma patch into kernel.

* Fixed busybox/changes problems. Looks like changes boot option needed CONFIG_DESKTOP to equal yes or it will not write to other devices then the livecd is on. I have not noticed this problem until testing changes in virtualbox. My desktop has livecd and changes on the same device so i wouldn’t notice any problems.

* Added PersistenceWizard from Salix OS project. This is so you can create a xfs filesystem in a file.

Everything is up2date as of 4:00PM EST on 20100825.

Archiso-live 20100725 Release

•July 25, 2010 • 28 Comments

Changes since last release:

* Using kernel26-zen now. More common kernel modules are build into the image to save on space. I’m also using BFS scheduler. It maybe a lot faster on file transfer since i can copy a 643mb iso image in 2 seconds vs 1+ min.

* The base folder is now under 200mb. I move alot of the development stuff to another module in modules folder. Like the /usr/include, /usr/share/locale, and .a files.

* The baseonly option is in the menu now again. I use lxde for desktop.

* Updated frugal-install.sh script. You will have to use gparted if you need to partition your drive. I have only tested the script in virtualbox so far. (ex. frugal-install.sh /dev/sda1 or frugal-install.sh /path/to/image.iso) Use at your own risk and backup before using this script. NOTE: Your grub.cfg file will be replaced with my grub.cfg file. So its best to back that up too.
