List of Slackware-based mini Distributions

Filed under
Slack

Following is a list of Slackware-based mini distro’s I’ve collected from various sources (wikipedia/distrowatch..) The need of such a list came when I was trying to find a Slackware-based mini distribution to install it in my usb pen-drive.

* Zenwalk - Zenwalk is a Linux distribution founded by Jean-Philippe Guillemin. It was originally based on Slackware. Since its creation, the distribution has become very different from Slackware in most regards while still maintaining compatibility with its binary packages.

* AUSTRUMI - AUSTRUMI (Austrum Latvijas Linukss) is a business card size (the current release size is 108 MB) bootable live CD Linux distribution. It is based on Slackware Linux. It was created and is currently being maintained by a group of programmers from Latgale region of Latvia. The current official release of Austrumi Linux is 1.9.3

* GoblinX

A real-time editing tool for Wikipedia

Wikipedia is one of the most frequently visited websites in the world. The vast online encyclopedia, editable by anyone, has become the go-to source for general information on any subject. However, the "crowdsourcing" used by Wikipedia opens their doors to spin and whitewashing–edits that may be less than factual in nature. To help journalists, citizens, and activists track these edits, TWG (The Working Group) partnered with Metro News and the Center for Investigative Reporting to build WikiWash. Read more
