Slackel Live 6.0 openbox has been released

Created:2014/4/13 1:05:09 djemos   Views:9647

Slackel live 6.0 openbox includes the latest 3.10.30 kernel and latest updates from Slackware's 'Current' tree. Slackel is based on  Slackware and Salix.

Slackel Live 6.0 Openbox includes the Midori web browser, Claws-Mail, Transmission, SpaceFm, Openjre, rhino, icedtea-web, Pidgin, Gftp, Wicd.

Abiword, Gnumeric and ePDFviewer office applications are included. Whaawmp is the default movie player, Exaile is the application to use for managing your music collection, Asunder Cd ripper, Bracero for writing CD/DVD's and more.

In the graphics section Viewnior, Gimp and Scrot the snapshot utility.
Iso images are isohybrid.

(The root password for the live CD is “live”. Standard user login is “one” with password: "one")

Slackel live has been created using Slackware Live tool for Slackware/Slackware64/Slackware-ARM Linux.
This tool has been further developed to support keyboard and locale setup on the fly, to add boot menus and splash image, to support booting on 13 locales and timezones, to set root's password, create a new user with password and remove the liveuser, to set the keyboard and locale, set the hostname etc when installing on hard disk.
Modules has been created using funionfs.
Supports GPT and legacy MBR partitioned disks, UEFI and CSM (legacy / BIOS) booting.
Also supports installation on USB as frugal install so user can boot the system with persistence changes. There is no need to create a persistence file.
(e)lilo is the installed boot loader if user want it. There is no need to set keyboard, locale, timezone since system boots in the locale at boot time

SLI is a minimalistic and optional GUI to install or copy the live system. This gui pass the installation procedure to slackware live tool which does the real installation.
I used c (GTK+2) and glade to further developed the sli gui and build-slackware bash script so both can be used on slackel:
- added support for setting root password on installation system
- added support for creating a user name and user password on installation system and remove liveuser.
- added partition manager connectivity in Gui (gslapt)
- added support for core, basic and full installation mode.
- locale, keyboard, timezone automatically set in installed system since user already has been chosen them on boot time from menus.
- Help appears while user move the mouse on the Gui.
- Boot on 13 locales and timezones.
