How do I build a module for Slax...?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2010
Hi Fellow Slackers...
Long time no see... this is the begining of me trying to create a LiveDVD distro tailored for Engineers ( Civil/Mechanical/Naval/Aeronautical)
I am starting with Slax, ( a customized version tweaked by PhD Hrvoje Jasak, and Henry Weller, creators of OpenFOAM CFD Analysis suite: http://powerlab.fsb.hr/ped/kturbo/openfoam/release/ )
Well, I guess i want to build some sort of OpenFOAM_Slax on steroids... :
More CFD Packages : AVL, XFoil, Gerris, Code_Saturne
Visualization Tools : VisiT, OpenDX, ParaView, GnuPLOT
Math Prototyping apps : Octave, Scilab, Maxima
Finite elements solvers : Calculix, Frame 3d, Code_aster, Syrthes, GetDP, Ofeli, DealII
Finite elements/volumes Meshers : Gmsh, Grummp, NetGen, TetGen
Cad Applications : BRL-CAD, Blender, FreeCAD, Salome Platform, OpenCascade.
Hope all this can fit in a DVD...
So three questions, for now :
How do I build a lzm module for slax...?

Installing Java in Slax
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2010
Completely new to linux, I decided to finally give it a try last night and made a Live USB for Slax. It booted up quickly, pretty much everything worked right away, and after getting the Wifi working I decided to call it a night.
My project for today was attempting to install Java, but I haven't had much success. There are modules on the Slax site for this, but a. they are unverified and b. I want to delve into linux further than just downloading everything off a website. I downloaded the latest Java package for linux, which was a self-extracting .bin. I followed steps 1 through 4 here, but step 5 didn't work. I got the error message
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.)
Slax on Ipod Shuffle
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 7, 2010
I hate using windows when I use computers at other places, so I thought maybe I could bring a different operating system with me. Slax Seemed like a good option. So I downloaded slax for usb, and extracted the archive to my Ipod shuffle, and ran bootinst.sh from the /boot directory, but this is what I got:
Setting up boot record for /dev/sdb...
/dev/sdb: only 512-byte sectors are supported
Any idea why this happened? Is it something to do with the amount of space on my Ipod?
(Sorry if this is the wrong thread, I was thinking it might go in "Installation and Upgrades," but it said only Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu/etc.)
The best Remote Desktop software for SLAX...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2013
A Quick question first, my understanding of Linux as of now is that Linus Torvalds developed the kernel and now all the other distributions and variation of hundreds of Linux version all share the same kernel as the one Linus Torvalds created, am I correct?
It's like any programmer can just take the kernel, customize with different desktops and programs and put a name on it like gugubuntu or something ???
So any Linux software for any version will work on any other Linux version?
In that regard, I'm using SLAX off of a USB drive just to use basic banking in internet cafes, and I need a software to connect to my windows 7 machine back home to see the desktop and share files, what are my choices? what is the best software I should download?
Thanking you all in advance.
