I prefer having a distro with the XFCE desktop & XDSL uses Fluxbox for its desktop. I am looking at sXb though because it is slackware based like Zenwalk so I might be able to build a slimmed down Zenwalk using parts of sXb. I currently have Xebian on my xbox which I installed the XFCE desktop onto,...

It was using gentoox on my xbox that got me into linux. I go to http://distrowatch.com/index.php every day to see what latest distro's have been released. My favorite after trying many is "Simply Mepis". Another interesting one is "dreamlinux". If your experimenting on an old PC try Zenwalk it uses ...

Slimned down version of gentoox

I would like to install gentoox on my xbox but cannot justify giving up so much hard drive space to something that I will only use to browse the web occasionally & check emails. I have Mepis linux installed on my main PC so you can see I don't need a full distro on the xbox. Is it possible to have a...

Great linux

SInce using the superb Gentoox on my xbox, I have been testing out every distro I can on an old spare PC I have. So far I have tried Lindows 4.5, Xandros 2.2, Suse 9, Mandrake 9.2 & many, many other free distro's. Just today I stumbled on a free disto called "Ark linux" and found it to be better tha...

aditional media player

I have found the media player "totem" to be very useful as it can play all internet audio/video streams that windows media player does. I currently have to run it in xebian and wondered if its possible for it to be installed in a future version of Gentoox?

found alternative media player

Ive found an excellent media player called "totem". It Plays all the popular streaming media from the net (audio & video) and plays dvd's etc. I dont know if it works in gentoox but ive just had it running perfectly in xebian so as long as its in the portage tree it should be just as effective. At l...

"Magic" is a automatic patch system. You simply open up a Konsole (terminal) window and type the command "magic".

It will launch the auto updater and ask you some questions regarding what you want to install.
