First of all I have to say that DSL rocks! :D

Now, on to the nag:

Can you PLEASE include a way to "make" things happen? (make command); by default instead of having to apt-get it? :(

I got frustrated after 3 days of trying to figure out how to install a wireless usb adaptor, but cannot get it to run because I cannot run "make" or "make install".

And since I cannot connect to the internet with that laptop, I cannot do much.


May the Force of the Dragon's Spirit be With You!

Just having make in the distro won't do much good.  You'll still need headers for whatever you want to build, and once you start adding those DSL won't have space for much of anything else to keep it under 50mb.

You can get make in the gcc1.dsl and gcc1-with-libs.dsl packages, which should be simpler than installing with apt.
