test the new Extix iso 231123 a derivative from Debian w.Refractatools

Puppy Linux adepts are dogs lover. The understand the specific name of such a distro :  «ONE bone»

Only the comfortable tools of Linux and one unique package (Firefox, I am sorry as I don't like FF!). But the rest is first class.

Try it and grow it until you own requirements!

Enjoy!

(Critic: Exton, it is his pseudo at the forum of Puppy Linux, I don know under which pseudo he contributes here at the Devuan forum (he uses and defend the Refractatools so powerful as no one else! I am certain, he contributes also here!) did let doublets being not really useful like the usual terminals in a case where a better terminal is also integrated, and that in a kind of «one bone»! Why? Can Linux really not spring over it's own shadow? Never?)

extix has systemd and is more a derivate of Ubuntu as from Debian itself...

Re: test the new Extix iso 231123 a derivative from Debian w.Refractatools

I did just finish my new installation according following .bash_history (a adapted version of bash_history where the detail is erased: I use those to avoid to have to write a lot! I use the key <cursor up> to repeat the line I need again + ENTER to do it (eventually after small changes as for ex. some new name of document etc.)

see the list of packages added. all the stuff will become Ubuntu 24.04 in 1/2 year!

the size of the refractasnappshot is only 2.1 GB. it starts AND WORKS willing in 8 GB RAM (fantastic: a real speedy system! Ideal!) if you accept the time to start more than 3 minutes on my computer but it is really hardware dependent! You can remove the USB stick and use the free port!

it seems to use the 2. session (ALT+CTRL+F2).

With ALT+CTRL+F1 you can open the first one and start JWM wit

startx jwm

or using F3

startx ratpoison

and commute after that free between LXQT, JWM and RATPOISON (3 graphic sessions at the same time!)

(little problem: actually the menu from ratpoison is not complete).

You can install using the refractainstaller. It is better and more secure...

refracta2usb is also present (but until 3.6 .. 3.7 GB I prefer dd! I did prepare my usb memory card using dd).

as ubuntu, I did have the freedom to add the mozilla-build depository at sourceforge for seamonkey and did remove firedox ah ah ah!

the installation needs a bit more as 7 GB (plus, it is clear, the room for the managing the partition depending of it's size. Used are global 7,97 GB in an 30 GB partition.
