And where did this government? What you have here is a piece of Linux history, left to die as other distributions take the mantle. Certainly, this is how open source works, but the fact that DSL still has popularity despite being many years behind, shows that it could be revived to it's full, previous glory. I am fully capable of starting such a project but am unsure if I can garner the attention that a reborn DSL could.

Go there and download the ISO. Burn to CD/write to USB/SD card as applicable, and reboot. As you mentioned using Mint I assume you know the process but can aid you further if need be.


The rc2 found above should work better as it is more recent, but might have some unknown bugs.

This is the droid you are looking for.  Dsl-n offers more out of the box but is five years older.

t should have given you a choice between grub and lilo,  both boot loaders. Grub is better documented but either should work fine. The link above should help you; basically, if a boot loader hasn't installed,  burn a grub live cd from superggrubdisk.org,  and install as per the first link.

Updates are far and few between,  and while apt-get update is possible,  it will most definitely break your system.  DSL's focus is entirely size,  and squeezing as much day to day productivity as you can out of any hardware.  Updates and security take a distant back seat.

I would expect that behaviour to not happen once installed,  but if it does which it may I will gladly help you then.

Do you still have mint installed? In either regard,  4gb is plenty for DSL, though depending on what applications you install I would go no lower than 0.5gb,  the rest for /home. Honestly though, leave hda1 as is and use hda2 as home/storage.
