Title: DSL-N -> DSL-DVD maybe?
Post by: RyanTG on October 20, 2012, 04:31:54 PM
The original intent of DSL was to fit on a credit card sized CD.  There are now credit card DVDs that hold at least 330MB. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_card

Perhaps DSL can continue with the 50MB CD card limit while DSL-N can fork to a DSL-DVD with a 330MB limit (and being only 95MB currently, there's plenty of room for expansion).

Interesting idea Ryan, thanks!

Title: DSL-Not => DSL-Not(ebook) Mini-Dvd size!

A precise general update is necessary. Otherwise "it" can be called DOL: Damn Old Linux!

Kernel 3.4.21 (minumum),
 alsa-lib, libasound
  ATK 2.6, libffi  
 bash, ncurses, ncurses-common, bash-locale
 dbus, dbus-glib
 emelfm2, liblzma, libxcb, libxml2, emelfm2-locale
 expat, expat2
  Gdk-Pixbuf 2.26
 GTK+ 3.6
 GLib 2.34
 lxde-common, lxde-icon-theme, lxmenu-data, lxpanel, lxsession-lite, libglade, libidn, libstartup-notification, urxvt
 openssl 1.0.1c
 Opera, opera-locale
  Pango 1.32
  Python, pycairo, pygtk-2.x, pyobject, 
 ttf-bitstream-vera, Ecofont
 wicd, dbus-python, dhcpcd, gobject-introspection, libiw, libnl1, ncurses-util, net-tools
 Wireshark, tshark
 xmms 1.2.11

I like "standard" mini-Dvd Rw, size 8 cm diameter (or 3 inch), depending on variant, these Mini-discs can offer from 1.4 GB up to 5.2 GB of storage space.
This written, instead of focusing in Mb limit, Mini-DVD is a Gb "mini-plate", I suggest  to open mind:
 call for a "list of requests" poll.
