There won't be an iso (unless someone else creates one) but I am willing to write a guide to "rolling your own".
Stage 6 completed
I printed my first files just now. It took quite a while to get cups to work; I had to run it repeatedly in debug mode to find out which bits were missing and add them in. The funny thing is I finally succeeded without most of the packages that Crux's prt-get lists as dependencies. Makes you wonder, doesn't it!
I'm tired. I don't want to do any more of this today.
This isn't the completion of stage 7 because I am using a temporary window manager (TWM) but I can get an xterm up. Unfortunately I can't get graphical Links because the Slack version of Links hasn't been built to use X as a backend. I shall have to build my own.
ahhhn nice to hear hazel. i just logged on to see if you had any more updates. I am not familiar with slackware but use the slapt-get correct is your distro going to use the same repos?

Stage 7 completed!
I have a running Enlightenment desktop. Building E was a big multi-stage job (I used Slackbuilds which are a wonderful thing). Configuring it will be even trickier as it is utterly different from anything I have used before. And I have no apps as yet except for xterm. Adding those will be stage 8.
Then I will tell you its name and why I built it. Stay tuned!
Stage 8 completed: Welcome to Slackbody!
Yes, that's what it's called, because it's based on Slackware but has a user interface similar to Bodhi: Enlightenment, Midori and Claws-mail. It also has graphical Links (my favourite browser, but it doesn't do Java), gvim as editor (Bodhi uses leafpad), and geany as development tool. And it all fits into 2 GB.
Midori was the last thing to be installed and I had to sweat blood to get all the dependencies in. I'm using it now.
As some of you know, I had a bad experience trying to install Bodhi: this is my glorious revenge. Now I have what I wanted from Bodhi and didn't get: a sleek, small Linux with an unusual desktop
