I can sense with my extrasensorial powers the progress of slax 7. It grows fast and at a steady rate. (dixit padre schizotypal) ;)

I tryed Slash 6 as Live CD and i like it very much. Can I setup the new version on my computer? Is this feature available?.
Slash helped me for recuperate some files of my secondary disk and think that is very fast to load on old computers. I have an GA-8IDX PIV with 1280MB of RAM and two disks of 120GB on it.

I run slax mainly from usb pendrive and wanted to have both 32 and 64 bit versions of slax 7 RC2 so I tried with the 64 one copied to slax64. When I start is using from=slax64 and the rest normal, it will boot fine. However when I try the same with the toram option it finds slax in slax64, then says copying slax data to RAM, and then it all stops with "cp: can't stat '/memory/data/slax': no such file or directory. Is there a way to fix this?

The mentioned problem should be resolved in Slax 7 RC3. The final is close... :)

1/ <ctrl right> + <letters> does not run...

And when I click on scan, it does not scan... wireless hotspots.
3/ Why is it root ?
4/ Menu > Leave > Shutdown:
No hibernate ? No suspend to ram ? Too bad !
5/ Firefox 10.0.11 ESR is more stable...
6/ a burning software should be shown...
7/ Is 6.2.0 a slax6 new iso ?

@ kadalka
Slax 6.12 is the last version (official) of slax.
6.20 is a PAE enabled quick hack based on 6.12 pae for those having more than 4GB. Non PAE enabled 32 bit linux can only address a maximum of 4GB, so there is no advantage in using 6.20 unless you have more than 4Gb.

Edited : Correction 4Gb and not 4MB

Addition :
As it is slax7rc3 doesn't come with any burning software. Earlier on his blog , he was ask if k3b will be included . He answer was no as in his opinion most people don't burn cd anymore. Hopefully some one will make a module soon.

You mean 4Gb or 4Mb ? That's not the same...
Thank you for replying so fastly... :-)

I made a lot of translations on the old homepage of Slax and I want to do it with the new one if it is or will be possible. But when I click on "sign in" the f***book login option is the only one... I personally "Don't Like" :) it and other such community login ways (yahoo,openid,google,etc.)... maybe I'm not alone with this, so a simple login form would be welcome...

I started using slax to boot strap our PXE installation process... and just updated to slax 7. Since we install a home spin of FC16, we had the edict to use grub as our boot manager.

I've generated a slax 7 module for grub-1.99 from the lastest source and thought I would give it back to the community. That said, I can't seem to find on the new blog anywhere to contribute.

How would one go about contributing modules?

Thanks!

I do agree with you gabor!

Isn't it possible to use a custom login system, or just the old one?

I don't know but I think most users wouldn't really understand what you are saying.
Perhaps English is not your first language , but it would help , if you put your question in point form:-

(a) I did blah
(b) Then blah blah
(c) My question blah blah.

I'm from Latin America, Peru by native Spanish language.
Problems with WiFi Slax 7.0.8.

Google Chrome settings disable "wifi", ie "networkmanager" chrome disables all removable devices, local drives, etc..

These problems arise when installing google chrome, but are solved by removing these two files: 2983-448-chrome.sb and GConf.sb

solution to remove

E: \ slax \ modules \ 2983-chrome.sb "remove"
E: \ slax \ modules \ 448-GConf.sb "remove"

Now restart and everything will be fine.

One other thing, google chrome has not been repaired, trouble continues as before.

Problemas con wifi Slax 7.0.8.

Google Chrome inhabilita la configuracion "wifi", es decir "networkmanager", chrome deshabilita los todos dispositivos extraible, unidades locales, etc.

Estos problemas surgen al instalar google chrome, pero se solucionan al eliminar estos dos archivos: 2983-chrome.sb y 448-GConf.sb

Solucion eliminar

E:\slax\modules\2983-chrome.sb "eliminar"
E:\slax\modules\448-GConf.sb "eliminar"

Ahora reiniciamos y todo estara bien.

Otra cosa mas, google chrome no se ha reparado, sigue haciendo problemas igual que antes.

First I would like to say that Slax is fantastic ---except no install feature.
If it had an install feature who would want anything else on a older unit
Running it now on a Panasonic toughbook CF-29 1.6GHZ 1.2GB ram and it smokes.

It found all the hardware and even wireless internet connection and audio runs smooth and I just can't stand that I cannot seem to get it to install, it's maddening.

I have tried literally 50 different Linux Distros and of all of them only a few are superb and Slax would be number 1 except for the inability to automatically install on a hard drive without being a linux programer.

thank you I do appreciate all your obvious hard work, many distros are becoming like Winders an update a day bug fixes and are larger with no real upside other than not paying old BILL for an incomplete and buggy version, technically we are still in DOS with large OS all the CPU speed is being slowed to a crawl by the shear size of the OS
all software must evolve but Slax so light and nimble and not cluttered again I love it.

Please make a version with an installer, I appeal to your kind nature if you have none LOL I will send money Slax is that good IMO.
