Project Summary

Lightweight distro, SMP-enabled kernel but CPU-compatible down to to a Pentium II. Suggested min. configuration is a PII-400 with 128mb.

This is Slackware with general desktop use in mind. Many utilities are included for easy setup and maintenance, but all the old Slackware ways still apply... stable, low-overhead, secure. All system configuration MUST be done as root. This is for security and to enable low maintenance in a school or business setting.

All-at-once installer puts all libraries and packages in at once, taking up about 1.8 GB of HDD space. Can be installed as per Slackware, but AUTOINSTALL (which partitions hard drive automatically) is also an option. Pcmanfm is the default window manager running on Icewm. Rox-filer is also available and is complimentary to pcmanfm.

K3B is the burning software, base install includes GIMP-2.6 (with extra script-fus), AbiWord-2.6.4, games, Thunderbird email client, ftp client, PDF viewer and a PDF editor, two installed (not online) dictionaries, Pidgin IM, a separate menu JUST for Linux and application documentation, video/audio players...

A few Multimedia features are not installed by default due to distribution restrictions in some areas of the world -- to facilitate use by those who can/choose to, there is an automated installer for these available to the root user. So if you want to play DVDs and/or convert MP3s or play a few of the different video types shown online that don't play by default -- just run the Extended Multimedia Installer.

CD2 includes OpenOffice, Deluge (torrents), Inkscape, Frostwire (P2P), several extra games, Scribus (desktop publishing), BibleTime, extended documentation, development related programs and several others.
