Nanolinux, new MC fork
« on: December 02, 2013, 07:12:07 AM »
Today's distrowatch mentioned that we have a new fork:
http://nanolinux.sourceforge.net/

Quote
Nanolinux is a very tiny Linux distribution based on MicroCore Linux with busybox.

It uses Nano-X instead of X11. FLTK 1.3.x is used as the GUI toolkit. The window manager is SLWM.

The following applications are included:
Dillo browser
FlWriter text processing program
Sprsht spread sheet program
FLTDJ personal information manager
Antipaint paint program
Fluff file manager
NXterm terminal emulator
Flcalc calculator
FlView image viewer
Fleditor

Games: Tuxchess, NXeyes, Checkers, Blocks, Mastermind

Truetype fonts, UTF08 support The distribution is currently an ISO image.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I just uploaded a new version of Nanolinux, it is called 1.2. It is still below 14 MB in size.

This version features an improved NXterm terminal emulation, and several new applications:

- FlMusic CD player
- FlRadio internet radio
- OSS sound
- FlChat IRC client
- Sudoku game
- Mount tool, system statistics
- Software package download and install utility
- NTFS support for Windows hard disks
- Grub package for hard disk install

Thank you for making such a good distribution that I could use as a base for Nanolinux!

The Japanese is worried now by letter indication by FLTK1.1.
The adoption of FLTK1.3 can solve this.

I wanted to try Nanolinux.
However, in the reference, 404 is displayed...

I searched, and the project site was valid afterwards:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nanolinux/

hello

i wondered about how much machine Ram Nanolinux needs?

The wiki says it needs 64 megs (if you don't use a swap partition)...but what does it
need if you have a swap partition?

Please use Nanolinux support resources if you have such question. While forks are welcome, they are not supported here.

I have not been able to run it below 64 MB. Even when I made a swap file.
