Alright, so after much searching around I've realized that my "perfect lightweight linux distro" doesn't exist.

Here's what I have in mind:

Based on Ubuntu
Run Fluxbox (or possibly pekwm) with LxPanel and PCManFM (Meaning it's lighter weight than LXDE, but looks really similar).
Have just a bare minimum of packages...it's EASY to install things in Ubuntu, so let people do it themselves.


Anybody have any experience with fluxbox or with building a distro in a VM to be distributed via iso?

Thanks!

Linux Tips & Tricks / Getting Suspend Working on Lenovo S10-3
« on: March 11, 2013, 09:27:33 pm »
Just so people know, if you're having trouble getting suspend to work on your Lenovo S10-3, try the fix here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_Ideapad_S10-3#Suspend_.26_Hibernate

Those lines should be added to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line of /etc/default/grub.

Adding nohpet didn't work for me, but hpet=disable highres=off nohz=off did :)

General Discussion / GUI Package Manager Alternatives
« on: August 01, 2012, 05:37:55 pm »
So, just curious...I'm realized that synaptic package manager, although very powerful, is rather lacking in looks IMHO. I very much like how Ubuntu's Software Center looks, however it's EXTREMELY resource-intensive. Are there any alternatives that are more lightweight? (I know of Mint's package manager...Last I used it though, I didn't like it much...)

Thanks!

On any distro based on Ubuntu 12.04, the wireless switch will disable wireless, but when I turn it back on I have to run "sudo rfkill unblock all" to be able to re-enable wireless.

Any help?
Thanks!
