1  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: DSL revival? on: October 25, 2014, 10:15:28 AM
What about a DSL-NG - New Generation - even if it tops out around the 100Mb mark, for the newer machines, with up to date kernels - could this be practical?
(Or even as a 64bit DSL)

The OP only has one post recorded, so I wouldn't hold your breath. :lol:

Regarding the 'up time' of Linux, you can count it in years, but it would be advisable to check it occasionally.

You shouldn't have any problems reading pendrives; if you do, just mount it manually.
4  MyDSL Extensions / Apps / Re: gnumeric on: September 30, 2014, 12:49:18 PM
Best to use gnumeric to import them, I would think, however, you could take a look at/read 'man cat'.

Should anyone be looking for recommendations, my suggestions are :-

Slitaz (cooking) - http://www.slitaz.org/en/get/
or
AntiX 13.1 base - http://sourceforge.net/projects/antix-linux/files/Final/antiX-13.1/

(AntiX is my regular distro, but SliTaz intrigues me, so I keep it in reserve. Smiley)

Hmm, when will DSL return, (I am wondering).......it has been 2 years......I fear it will be more, (if ever), unfortunately.  Cry
7  Damn Small Linux / Release Candidates / Re: New Release Candidate: 4.11rc2 on: September 02, 2014, 03:50:56 PM
Will there be another release?
(This release is getting very old now.)
8  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: DSL revival? on: September 02, 2014, 03:47:14 PM
I'd like to see a modern version of DSL, with as much backwards compatibility as is possible using todays software & drivers, (i.e. wifi).
I don't know where our DSL leader (John) is with a newer version than 4.11.rc2 - is there any indication elsewhere that I may have missed?
Failing that, let us see how you would like DSL to progress?
9  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: What does DSL get run on nowadays? on: September 02, 2014, 03:39:05 PM
I've just come back to look at how DSL is getting on, only to find it still stuck in 2012.  Roll Eyes
So, I've added my CPUs into the vote, all P4 & above nowadays.  Wink
10  Damn Small Linux / USB booting / Re: HELP HP N54 Microserver won't boot DSL (Newbie) on: June 13, 2013, 09:59:19 AM
If you are still not happy, there is another very small footprint distro called SliTaz, might be worth your while to take a look.
(It runs 'live' in ram, can be remastered, can be installed.)
11  Damn Small Linux / USB booting / Re: Doesn't boot on: December 12, 2012, 07:27:47 PM
It can't find your kernel; try editing grub commands when you restart your computer; it is probably looking on the wrong disk.
12  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: Can't "see" a USB stick on: December 12, 2012, 07:16:48 PM
Maybe you have to tell your VM that the other partition is there.

I only use qemu; that requires that I tell it which 'disk' to boot from & tell it any other that I want to be available to that 'disk'.

Firefox will be what is filling up your ram, especially with only 64mb!!!

See if you can work with a 'lighter' browser.

You're welcome.
(Wasn't sure how to report it.)

In your menuentry you say it is on sdb8 - but in your kernel line you are telling grub to look in sda1 - try changing that to where your DSL is.
