Posted by windancer on Feb. 08 2011,17:58well it didnt take me long to get everything back up and runnin on my toughbook. MyDSL doesnt want to update tried a few different mirrors then just download what I needed directly and used mydsl to install the packages
Posted by windancer on Feb. 09 2011,04:45Well all is right in mudville! I feel pretty dumb now. I was messing with the Panel and came across very nice button called Select a Mirror.....Hmmmm wonder what that could be. Did a google search for mydsl mirrors and came across this
put this in the provided line and changed the protocol to ftp clicked on my DSL and Viola all was right in the world again

Thanks Andrew I will download that and give it a run on this oldy Toughbook I still use
Posted by windancer on Feb. 20 2011,13:23well I downloaded and tried tinycore my old panasonic Toughbook just doesnt like it as with many distros its very finicky so for me its DSL or Windows XP Lite
Posted by buzzard on Mar. 07 2011,05:04So, is tinycore the new project of what was previously the DSL team, or is it a completely different outfit?

No clue Buzzard. it was a recommendation from another member. However my old toughbook wont boot Tinycore Ive exhausted all possibilties. My toughbook is old as dirt but it still fun to see what I can get out of it. at this point its DSL, winXP Lite, Win98, WinME or Win2000. I would love to get a good version of linux running on it. Not that DSL isnt good in fact its the best running system out of those I posted. However my Laptop is real finicky on wireless cards I cant get my wireless working in DSL for some reason.

Tinycore is led by Robert Shingledecker who was the power behind the development of DSL. Many of the other people actively involved in DSL also moved to TC.
Machine specs for TC are sumarised in:
< tinycore >
A quick search of the tc forums shows Toughbooks mentioned at:
< Toughbook1 >
< Toughbook2 >
< Toughbook3 >
Posted by stunix*com on Mar. 14 2012,10:45I think what happened to MyDSL is that Ibiblio moved the
< ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/mydsl >
< ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/ >
then didnt link them.
just go to your control panel/selectmirror and change the address to
also change http to ftp for faster downloads.
I suppose you could add the conffile to your .filetool.lst (if i could find it)
