XFCE alternative?

I am more than ready to move on from FXDE to PekWM plus "extras" when there
is support for the Network Manager's Tint2 icon and the Porteus dialog boxes.

Perhaps this is possible... because Openbox is a deal breaker for me @ this point.

XFCE alternative?

A DE is an integrated environment that includes... a WM with other "elements". Anything else is only just... a WM with other "elements". Again this is not opinion... merely definition. see... Desktop environment Again... I am more than familiar with Openbox which uses Mesa dependency. However... Pek...

XFCE alternative?

I have used Openbox for over 15yrs across many distro's.
However... although it's a quality WM it's not a DE.

The error you posted appears to be related to gcc-g++ if that helps.
I saw a site that suggested disabling c++ using a compiler flag parameter.

XFCE alternative?

You are correct... there are many light weight alternative window managers. Unfortunately... there are few alternative DE's that are NOT either Gtk or Qt. Of the ones that are not using those bloated tool kits such as EDE and FXDE you are left with a performance/aesthetic trade-off. So for me... the...

Well done. Now it gets more complicated. You now have what I have minus compliation w/ a hardened toolchain. I have spent the last 2 weeks configuring scr2pkg to produce a hardened toolchain. I completed that task 2 days ago. Now for the last 2 days I've been compiling and updating 05-devel.xzm I sh...

@ fulalas... The link is moot... it's parent webpage was given in the first post. Also... I already stated that in the Linux ecosystem there is no right or wrong... old or new only "choice". This book makes that fact clear... The Cathedral and the Bazaar I'm sure you're aware there are distro's that...

You are sharing your off topic thoughts but not your on topic links. Kindly read the first post again. Also if you PM me I would be more than happy to share in detail my project goals. In any case... the purpose of a request thread is to request a module and/or package not a critique. Not for nothin...

Src2pkg.conf w/ "hardened" EXTRA_FLAGS

For those interested in this sort of thing this is my current command line entry...

Code: Select all

src2pkg -VV -W -i='make -i install' -p=/usr source.tar.gz
-p=/usr
...this parameter forces a "Slackware" compliant compile.

Dillo alternative?

I forgot to mention... perhaps you might consider adding "tkdvd" (alternative burner) to your APorteus miniset?
It's only deps are basically tcl/tk. If SnackAmp (tcl/tk) gets compiled it might also be a good music player alternative.

Re: Value priced (dual core) "Coreboot" mITX compact desktop

A new quad core pITX was recently released. It would make an excellent router.
