Title: New to DSL need guidance
Post by: prayuth01 on November 30, 2017, 05:58:20 AM
I am looking at using DSL to install to an external zip/thumb drive to carry with me. I looked over the home page, and the download page, I found a place an the applications page where it says you can create your own custom cd. I know that I want to change most of the applications included with it, so can someone give me some guidance on exactly where to get the core file, along with the other applications. I know I can just install the core distro, then play store the rest, so I guess my question is, where can I download the core file, and does anyone have any suggestions that might make this an easier and better process than what I'm looking at right now?

I haven't tried it, but DSLcore (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/dslcore/) may be what you're looking for. I believe it was the early steps towards what became the separate TinyCore Linux (http://www.tinycorelinux.net) project.

The MyDSL Extensions are also on the DSL download sites (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/). There is also a respository browser program in DSL, though I don't know if it's included with DSLcore. Extensions can be loaded from the command line with the "mydsl-load" command.

You can also install packages made for for Debian Woody. Though if you want newer software, you'll have to compile it yourself. The compile.uci extension is a good start to setting up a compiling enviroment in DSL. Check that any software that you try to compile is compatible with the V. 2.4.x kernel used in DSL.
