    Thanks! I'll give the Fedora 15 live CD a try. After reading more about GNOME3 I'm a bit less enthusiastic about it anyway.

    Debian/Ubuntu based distro for GNOME3?

    After reading about GNOME3, I'm curious to try it out. However, I gather it's not so easy to install on Debian or Ubuntu, the distros I use.

    I know there are only about a gazillion Debian/Ubuntu...

    For reasons I have long ago forgotten, I commented out the resume device line for my file server and most of my workstations. Something about making it easier to clone drives to make new systems...

    I am not nearly familiar enough with either Lenny or webmin to have any idea what the problem is, but I am curious why you're using Lenny for a simple file server.

    I started at Cornell in the fall of 1988, and attended a grand total of one lecture by Carl Sagan during my four years there.

    I agree that Cornell is sprawling and beautiful, but I guess I must be...

    I don't use windowmaker. I tried it briefly a couple years ago, but I instantly disliked its look and feel. It's obviously based on the original NeXT interface, which I actually used back in 1989...

    The other day I was using Knoppix's toram option. It's actually very sluggish, because it uses a compressed filesystem. I was quite shocked at how long it took to open up Firefox/Iceweasel. Okay,...

    That is correct. This tutorial will also work equally well with a USB thumbdrive install, for a cheap solid state solution. However, if you're like me you already have some old hard drive lying...

    Puppy's approach of using a compressed file system is great if you're strapped for RAM. One reason I chose to use an uncompressed file system was because Puppy already had the compressed approach...

    New and improved RAMboot method

    How to RAMboot

    This details a method of loading your entire OS into an uncompressed ramdisk. The result is lightning fast performance, and elimination of hard drive noise and power consumption...

    Delayed reaction? Anyway, the same thing will work with IceWM (and other WM's, I would expect).

    The ability to change the menu on the fly is something I know IceWM is capable of since it's a...

    I found that jwm used a bit more memory than IceWM (with the IceCrack2 theme--memory usage depends on theme). More importantly, taskbar applets like nm-applet didn't work with jwm.

    Other than...

    Sure, but the majority of those WMs are either dead or mostly dead. For me, one easy requirement that culls out many WMs is that it must be in the Debian repositories. If it's not just an...

    Sure, but I don't think there's really a big practical difference in terms of functionality, overall.

    Thanks!

    My first idea was to take what a liveCD does and modify it. However, it looked really complicated and I decided to try and come up with something from scratch. Partly, this was so I...

    The "fglrx" driver is actually the proprietary driver from ati.

    The open source driver is called "ati".

    Personally, I've never had good results from the proprietary fglrx driver. I always get...

    The thing in the background was probably network-manager. If you used GNOME, the little taskbar network icon was nm-applet (it shows if a network is connected, and will try to connect if it can).

    Okay, I spoke too soon. Icewm-lite is actually as lightweight as twm. Using free-k, twm+aterm used up 14,120k. Icewm-lite+aterm came in a hair lighter at 14,090k. That's a difference of just...

    Clearly, I need to try out twm in more depth. ;)

    (It could actually be useful for me if I want to use hardware that has too little RAM for even icewm-lite.)

    My experience is that external USB2.0 drives are about half the speed of internal IDE drives.

    I agree with retsaw--don't put /home on the drive, just put data files on it.

    The number of times I've accidentally pulled up something complicated and preprogrammed in IceWM is zero.

    You can configure the keys in IceWM exactly any way you want.

    Open up firefox on a machine with 32megs, and swap WILL be used! But there are just too many variables when opening up firefox to use that as part of the test.

    That's more or less the test I...

    I'm sure that's great for your own personal purposes. I don't think other people will find it easier to remember "/1" than "/mnt/hda3" (or more likely, /media/sda3), since the latter will actually...
