...because everybody likes solarized dark. Added an xclock for checking the X11 resources. Seems to blend.

(It shows 1000MB disk space in use, my aim is to strip off 20-30%. Locales eat up 180 all in all, documentation is around 75 -- we'd still be around 320MB in ISO size right now with decent xz compression, whatever... fit a USB stick if possible, right? Does anybody use 256MB sticks? Ha!)

Like it. Solarized is a very well done scheme. Of course there are pieces I don't like (not a purple fan). The solarized light is very nice too! I used it for awhile recently. Plus there are available solarized schemes for just about everything which is a plus.

^ That's what I thought, too. I am still using your blackish themes, skateboard, streetlamps, or most recently iron, but you know, 'go with the flow' :D

I'll try a mix of dark and bright solarized, they should fit quite well.

Well look how that is shaping up, nice! Speck... the kids and I have been watching episodes of Pee Wee's Playhouse and the Pee Wee Herman movie lately, Speck is his dog, hahaha! Ohmybones, I love it. Trimmed down Slack with cwm, what more does anyone need?

Niki Kovacs of Microlinux has been working on a lightweight configuration of Slack, too:

^ Brilliant thank you for those links Bones. I have actually gone back to Core Salix again, and I am loving it, reading Niki's stuff has given me shit loads more insight on Slackware. Btw his way of thinking, makes him sound like a real BBQ'er at heart. Will try the StripSlack at some point!

I am soooooo looking forward to this Jules +1

Thanks Bones, the instructions are interesting, though it still requires a full ISO to start off with. I use a different method (build in a chroot) to avoid this. In fact, the bootstrapping only takes around half an hour (I have a quite slow internet and use my T43 for it). I'll post the script when it's ready.

Salix again, this time built up from a core install; cwm-openbsd, termsyn font. I have always said that I wanted a slackware minimal install, and Salix has given it to me.

You might say "pidsley, that looks like all your other installs!" -- yes; that is true, but this is how I decide if I can use a system -- can I build my usual working environment, and do it without extra crap? Yes I can, from a Salix core install. I will keep this on the test machine and see how it performs and how well it survives upates. But so far I like it.

^^ well done, Pidsley.

I follow a similar pattern when I test something new on my machines.

Can I build my environment?

1) yes: all good
2) no: sorry, no time for love

Beautiful pidsley, looking forward to hearing how that continues to work for you. Did you forego all gtk madness?
