A few posts still pop up from time to time.

John (DSL developer) usually checks the forum each month or so to delete the spam, but he's being a bit slow over the last attack. At least they stopped on their own, so it shouldn't be hard to overlook when viewing new posts.

Is anyone posting on this site, other than spammers? I found it while looking for a distro to install on my old Compaq Presario. The spammers don't add much to the Linux discussion.

The last STABLE release is "dsl-4.4.10.iso" in the "current" directory. The official download site is at ibiblio (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/).

The release candidates for 4.4.11 don't change that much though, and I don't think there have been any significant problems found with RC2.

DSL-N was designed to include and support more current software at the price of being bigger than 50MB and less compatible with old '90s era computers. However development ceased before DSL, so in some respects it is less up to date.

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.

I started DSL install.Selected multiple users.  Got message "installed" Next came something about boot loader. I clicked on that, but nothing is happening. I don't think the process is finished. CD has not ejected as I would expect.

Dell Dimension 4550. 1GB RAM, 30GB HDD. Had LinuxMint 17 Mate installed with 2 partitions, hda1, and hda2. Installed DSL to hda1. What Am I supposed to do now? What about updates? Security? I got question about using ext2 or ext3 file system, and that ext 2 was for slower systems. Well what catagory does the 4550 with P4 2.4 Ghz with 1 GB RAM fit into? I selected ext3. I kept getting security warning for every site I went to when running Firefox from the Live CD. Since The live is running from root, I can understand that, but is very annoying. Will I have that behavior after I am running from the HDD? I plan to use AdBlock Plus and NoScript then. I just planned on having 2 partitions, one for / and another for /home. any advice for partitioning? hda1 is 4 + GB and hda2 takes up the rest of the drive .
