Dagnammit. My mistake. If you go on their Sourcefource page you can get Fluxbox and Ratpoison versions of the previous 13.37 release.

Why not FreeBSD?

I am a big fan of Linux Mint, worth a try if you haven't yet! They have Xfce desktop as an option. smile

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

I repackaged: My Little Buntu - Openbox is Magic.

to: 'My Little Dian - Openbox is Magic'  - NICE! lol lol lol lol

I mean really why use a derivative of Debian to get at Debian packages when you can just use "Dian" direct!

Nice little distro intoCB, thanks!

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

I love LinuxBBQ Elektra, if you feel like going knee-deep in command line interface.
Today I tried Arch Linux, might want to give that a try if you want to try something different from Debian. Manjaro makes it easier, though it removes the fun of the challenge.

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

madbox is still around? nice. havent tried a new version for ages.. 12.04 is LTS with 5 years support by the way.

edit

just gave it a test. looks way more the ubuntu style (wallpaper and fonts) than back in 2009&2010 when I last tried it.. but this is about all it has in common with normal ubuntu.

it is fast as hell even from live cd.. 120 mb after boot, openbox environment with no dektop icons, but with lxpanel on top, nice and simple conky, pcmanfm and chrome.. not many programs shipped in the  330 meg iso. only terminal, htop, pcmanfm, gnomemplayer, pdf and picture viewers and geany, htop. basta. not even an archive tool... but hey, ISO is under 330 mb and i386.. nice for old boxes. no software center, flash and mp3 preinstalled.. ubuntu stripped down as much as can be. 5 years support. very nice.

last time I tried it it came with adeskbar as dock at the bottom, cause the developer wrote adeskbar as well and it wasd some kind of special touch to this distro. but it is not there any more. whatever.. I like it.

something to throw on old boxes to have a minimal working system.

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

Personally, for all of the Crunchbang aficionados present, I'd suggest merely waiting for the DDOS attack to run it's course.
Crunchbang being based upon Debian will be more than stable enough to use as a production level system on a daily basis without updates for weeks on end with negligible worries until the Crunchbang Repositories are operating at designed efficiency.
Just a friendly reminder of the facts is all <thumbsup>.
Meanwhile, I'd estimate not more than 3 days or so however before the attack is finally negated for those who prefer to remain updated nonetheless.

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

Chromebang. Oh wait, that's out. But that's my top choice.

Ok, in this order, Livarp, VSIDO, Archbang, Dragonfly, FreeBSD (all using Openbox, fluxbb, awesome, dwm, or evilwm plus tint2).

Or, non-nix, BeOS/Haiku!! Loved BeOS!

But in all honesty, no worries, #! will be back soon.

Re: Suggestions for distributions to try while waiting for the DDoS to end

Well, it is a great distro, but I like multiple choices. I use and install #! on customers' machines, but I love playing with other distro as well just out of curiosity. To be honest, I've mainly been on sid for the last two months and I'm lovin' it. Now I got Arch on one of test PCs and I'm happy to play with it for a while.
That said, #! is the perfect Debian stable for me.
