Ubuntu 9.04 + cifs + Slax 6.0.7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2010
So, I'm sitting here on my laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 desktop, and I ssh to a Slax 6.0.7 box downstairs. Then I realize that I still need access to local files on my desktop.
I pop open nautilus on my laptop, right-click on th directory I need, and select `Sharing Options'. I check the first box (``Share this folder'', and name it `ipl'. It pops open a box telling me I need to install a package, I do so, it tells me I need to restart the session; I log out and back in.
I add the line
to /etc/exports, and run the command to update this.
So I get back in on the Slax box, and mount the share with the command
mount -t cifs -o 'user=luke' HP-dv6426us-u904:ipl ipl/
. This appears to work, but I soon discover that I do not have write access.
I see that the files are owned by UID 1000, I create a user with that ID, no luck.
I try the command
mount -t cifs -o 'user=luke' -o rw -o uid=0 HP-dv6426u
Slax customization what would you add?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 31, 2008
So I stripped down a 6.0.7 Slax .iso, planning to customize it and use it for, well, something I'm not sure yet. I'm just doing this for fun, and I'm gonna keep my Frankenslax to myself. But since I'm not sure what kind of Slax remix to make, I'm posting here.
What would you do? Would you leave it without a GUI and add some more console apps? Would you add a flashy GUI? But that wouldn't make it special, since the original Slax uses KDE, and there's an older variant using Xfce. Maybe Openbox with transparency, or Gnome with Compiz? Not sure how that could be useful, but still.
So, what would you add?
EDIT: (You can skip this part, I'm just ranting about my failure )Well, my first foray into 'distro' creation has failed. After deleting the base modules 003-006 and converting all the necessary .tgz files to .lzm ... I deleted all the modules because of a misplaced wildcard('rm * .tgz', anyone).
After starting over and finally getting that part done, I used the make_iso.sh f
do somebody build livecd like slax?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2009
slax is a good linux,which can compress system parted with lzm(squashfs,autofs),and it can save changes after you use,this is very good for my product,but there are some probem,not good for me.
i want to custom ubuntu livecd and compress system with lzm,use the slax's kernel.and can save changes,application in a directory.
just like this:
vmlinuz initrd.gz syslinux/ system.img modules/myapp.lzm
thanks very much!
Ubuntu: mkv 5 fps, no subs, addit.inst., USB Slax: mkv extra, subs, no add.inst.

I am disappointed with Ubuntu Gnome multimedia.
I tried to play MKV and first i needed to download some codecs. Movies are slow with low fps and sometimes just freezes. I even cant play subs.
On the other hand, my Slax (KDE) USB version of no more than 200mb works perfect with multimedia.
teamviewer 6/7 on slax, wine as root, on slax 64 build
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 20, 2014
i know it's known that wine should not run as root, but because slax is special, can it be done?
attempting to run teamviewer 6 on slax, but teamviewer complains not to use as root.
i'm guessing it's wine complaining about root, but any way to override this?
this is slax 7.0.2
i've tried teamviewer 7 on slax, but that fails right away. (nothing actually happens. seems the binary is not friendly with slax.)
Installing SLAX on hard disk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 8, 2009
I intend to install slax OS on the hard drive. I made a new Ex3 partition and copied "SLAX" and "BOOT" folders on it. After modifying the Grub Bootloader in UBUNTU, Slax worked properly. The only problem is that I couldn't define for SLAX to use the new partition and it uses RAM to store the data temporarily. What can I do to use hard disk as storage device?
By the way, I modified Grub bootloader by adding the following lines to "/boot/Grub/menu.lst" file in UBUNTU OS:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 rw real_root=/dev/sda7 autoexec=xconf;
I also removed the expression "root=/dev/ram0", but it didn't work.
I hope someone can help me in this issue.
Thanks a lot.
Slax: how to not log in as root
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 26, 2008
I have slax running on my flash drive. The default user is root, and it logs into root automatically. I created a new user, but can't get to a login screen. I restart X, and just restarts X and logs me in as root. I even set a root password, which it never asks for.
How can I disable autologon, or get it to log into my user?
[SOLVED] uninstall slax ?

I need to uninstall slax. It is causing my computer to freeze. How do I uninstall slax using windows 7? I am going to try a different distro of linux.
HOWTO: Make a multibooting usb easily (SLAX/DSL) UBUNTU 8.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 5, 2009
This HOWTO does not come with any guarantee, use at your own risk.
Tutorial created on Ubuntu 8.10.
I have searched long and hard on how to make a multi-booting USB, and HURRAH I finally found my holy grail. Its called Mk-boot-USB, a PERL script that can be found at http://people.ofset.org/~ckhung/p/mk-boot-usb/. Use at your own risk, I and the author of Mk-boot-USB take no responsibility for the consequences resulting from improper use of this script.
Your USB for this tutorial must exceed 1GB in size.
You must install qemu to quickly test your USB's bootability (invented adj).
To install qemu type in:
sudo apt-get install qemu
And follow the prompts.
YOUR USB MUST BE UNPLUGGED BEFORE BEGINNING THIS TUTORIAL.
YOUR USB WILL BE REPARTITIONED BY THIS TUTORIAL, BACK UP ALL FILES ON THE USB, THEY CANNOT BE RESTORED.
Download the latest version and place it into root ( / ). Can't access root? Go to terminal (Apps -> Accessories -> Terminal) and typ
Anyone use Slax (particularly Frodo edition)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 19, 2006
Hey everyone. I thought I'd start a thread on something that I consider to be a pretty cool LiveCD. A while ago I was looking for a basic liveCD that booted up straight to console, looking for something slim that would boot up quickly and let me make any configuration changes that I needed. I ended up finding Slax Frodo Edition.
I think it is very nice for when you need to do some quick emergency configuration changes and such.
I'm just curious if others have tried it and what you think of it.
Also one thing that I found very cool about this liveCD is that it automatically mounts your partitions for you and puts them all in the /mnt directory. I personally think it would be great if Ubuntu did the same or similar. Having to edit fstab is one thing that I don't think newbies should have to deal with to gain access to all the files on their computer.
