Projects / Slax


Slax is a modern, small, and fast Linux operating system with a modular approach and outstanding design. Despite its small size, which is below 200 megabytes, Slax provides a wide collection of pre-installed software for daily use, including a well organized graphical user interface (KDE4) and useful recovery tools for system administrators. The modular approach gives you the ability to include any other software in Slax easily, by downloading a module with the software, without having to install or configure it.

This replaces knoppix for me
This looks fantastic, and have placed this on my regularly spywared, virus infected computer illiterate in-laws network as a Windows replacement.

However, I would like to mod the iso in such a way as to make requisite changes to X, and set an autoboot to X.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the hard work Tomas, I am your newest fan.
