Damn, timing is everything in comedy. My post would have been a little funnier if it came before Al's. Missed it by 20 seconds.

Very good!   My dream cafe racer bike.   Also known as the "Flying Brick" because of the engine block - four cylinder, horizontal, left to right.   Typical German overengineering :-)

That is strange.  Why remove any of those options? Seems like good ones to have:)

^ always appreciated arpinux' stuff. Glad to see they're still at it!
It appears that the distro itself is suitable for non-French.
How old is nakeDeb? Some git repos maybe?

Thank you for the link.
I have already installed and played the amd64 version in QEMU. I like all this very much due to the low resurces.  smile

Now I have done the download of the i386 version. For my ThinkPad X40 it seems to me very suitable, because Helium (~190MB) played there still easily, but with Lithium (~390MB) I already come to its limits.

So, I will replace Helium if that also runs so well.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

I'm in GhostBSD at the moment (live disk). Early days and I haven't installed it yet (?) but it seems to be working OK except that so far I haven't been able to get it to mount my USB drive; I'm getting an "Operation not supported by device" message.

(The video driver also won't support any resolution higher than 1024x768 on my system, but that's liveable with for me.)

Ditto and only thing is Fluxbox doesn't really like dual monitor setups that much IMO. But I also do love nakedeb's fluxbox theme as it is so close to that of Helium. Gonna throw this in Virtualbox for a spin.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic … 28#p110528

Update

i installed the nakeDeb ISO for bl-helium on the x40. Took about 25 minutes. smile
Both in the live iso, and with the install to the SSD, the kernel parameter <nomodeset> was necessary. This now looks like this in /default/grub:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="systemd.show_status=1 nofail nomodeset quiet"

I installed <manual> in expert mode to continue using the existing swap and bl-lithium partitions. The fstab has been modified accordingly.
Unlike the QEMU VM, installing Grub into the root partition's PBR was straightforward. Likewise later the additional installation of the firmware-ipw2x00. So it's always good to install with ethernet first.

It is a pleasure to see this little distri boot with a ram consumption of 111 MB. The following languages are preinstalled: fr us de be, whereby already in the live iso the language selection can be influenced by setting the kernel parameters.
There are fluxbox and i3wm on board.

Since on this ThinkPad X40 with its American keyboard layout the keys
< > and | are missing, I still have to install my .Xmodmap.

A few more pictures of the "gimmicks".  big_smile

hi humans smile

glad you like my little distro tongue

nakeDeb is a french distro: many things (specially menus or preconfigurations) are in french.
but if english spoken people want to play with it, i will work on a real english/french release.

nakeDeb git sources: https://framagit.org/3hg/nakedeb
nakeDeb modules: https://nakedeb.arpinux.org/modules/ to install some parts of nakedeb's custom configs on a regular Debian system (use at your own risks smile )

stay in touch and thanks for feedbacks smile

Welcome to BL Forums and I've downloaded the ISO for your little distro and I like it...is there a way to change the language within it as I am from the USA.

Why not try out BunsenLabs? smile

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

hi DeepDayze smile

to change language (as it's french by default) you need to edit boot command line from the live menu and delete the fr-FR location options. same to do if you install, or choose 'expert' install from the live menu.

about bunsenlabs, i was a crunchbang user some years ago and Corenominal (God save the King) helped me to build my first live fork wink
but i really can't work with openbox xml config files... it was almost killing me on crunchbang ! lol
