One of the original developers is still here hosting this site, but I don't think there is to be any new releases, as DamnSmallLinux does what it was intended to do.
The other developer that I know of, is involved with TinyCoreLinux, which is basically a modern version of DamnSmallLinux, with a few extra tweeks.
There is also another distro with similar intentions called SliTaz. Perhaps you should see if either of those would suit you better.

Is there any one in the dev team still around? Are there any plans for bring it back, or a spin off distro?
I really like this distro for it's use on i386 computers with low resources.... and it's just a speedy distro in general

Hi, Dentrix:
You could save mydslinfo.bz2 to your mydsl directory, then backup and reboot:
---
Mount the partition where is located your mydsl
Go to: http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/.
Make click in: Master list of all MyDSL Extensions
Then appears a window :"Save Link as File"
change the location "/tmp/mydslinfo.bz2" to /path-of-your-mydsl directory.
Backup and reboot.
Now your mydsl Browser may appear with the apps.

Thanks a lot !  Your advice with the terminal window worked very well !   Grin Grin Grin

The myDSL browser always gives: Database checked failed ... gremlins....

anyway...

best regards, Karl-dentrix

You can use the script "mydsl-load" in a terminal window. For example, if one was in the directory with the .dsl files, this command would load an extension "mydsl-load <name>.dsl" where "<name>" is the name of the partiular extension.

I believe that double clicking on extensions in the emelFM file manager also loads them, unless that's something I set up myself. You will see text confirming that the extension is loaded appear in the terminal log at the bottom of the emelFM window.

You can also use the DSL extension broser as described on this page: http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/installing_mydsl_extensions.html

EDIT: Or if you mean you don't know how to run the program after the .dsl has been loaded: Some programs can only be run from the terminal, so they do not have icons appear in the MyDSL menu or the desktop. Check the documentation or the Man pages for the programs you want to run for the correct way of calling them. Or just type their name followed by "--help" in the terminal for their built-in command list which is usually more condensed. You can type "<program name> --help | less" if the help list is too long to view.

Hi everybody !

I am new here and in DSL !  Sorry for my uninitiated question !

I have a very old  igel-1 Thin client with a i586 Prozessor;
As "cdrom" a 4GB.Flash memory and a USB stick for the Backupfile.

Now I downloaded
http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/
some Applications Programs and saved them  on the compact Flash memory.

After some days of trying I could not find out how to run the program:e.g.: Xfireworks.dsl of the side:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/ "Applications".

thanks for your helping hand, regards, Karl-dentrix
