    Hello from Versailles in France!

    It’s impossible to install SparkyLinux 2.0 beta1 on hard disk: the swap partition is never recognized…

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    You should consider to offer a link to a torrent file.
    The amount of people who can seed your distro will go up,
    and the wait goes down.
    win-win situation.

    I’ve sent it out to the torrenttracker so I’ll try to start uploading this night.

    Amazing – someone who has actually got an implementation of E17 right. Bodhi was like this but IMO is now not as good since V2. Just one question please. How can I turn off the annoying wobbly window feature?
    Not really into games so as of now just tried the live version of Eris x64.

    A warm thank-you for your effort!!

    It’s an instant success too, I see.

    People’s hungry bittorrent servers are waiting for more. ;-)

    If your workload permits, please consider adding more torrents from your previous distros.

    Kind regards from Belgium.

    Thank you for your hard work! Looks great!

    From your experience, which DE uses the least CPU/RAM between LXDE and E17? Running the same features and looks of course. Just like what you are trying to do.

    I tried switching between DE in live session with logout, but it just loads LXDE every time. Running x86_64 2.0. I also guess just logging out may cache the previous environment so I suspect testing it that way would be wrong :).

    Conky seems to use quite a lot of CPU, and E17 is not running something similar so I guess that would have to be removed from the comparison as well.

    Just asking for your experience since you are working with both environments.

    Sincerely yours

    I think you have run Sparky from USB, it does not support all BIOSes so can be a problem with changing between desktops. To avoid that run Sparky from DVD. What do you mean that “E17 is not running something similar”?

  13. Polkadot
    January 29th, 2013 at 12:39 | #13

    Ah, will try again if I get my hands on DVD disks. I haven’t used them for years :)

    Well since I could not get E17 to run I took a look at the screenshot you had and there was nothing similar to Conky running on E17. I mean CPU+MEM+HDD+uptime meters.

    So if I compare resource usage of E17 vs. LXDE, Conky will make LXDE use more CPU than E17.

    So that is why I am asking you, with your experience.

    Which desktop is most lightweight in general. E17 or LXDE? Which one uses less RAM and CPU? When they have the same looks and features.

    Thank you for the answer and your hard work!

  14. pavroo
    January 29th, 2013 at 20:38 | #14

    There is not conky runing on e17 at all. I never put it on start up for enlightenment. The screenshot with conky you see is with LXDE only.
    I compared e17 and LXDE 2.0 by Htop running on VirtualBox.
    e17 uses 230-360 MHz CPU and 80 MB RAM, LXDE uses 180-230 MHz CPU and 95 MB RAM (approx).
    So the usege of both desktops is similar in my way, but LXDE is little lighter.
    Kind regards

    Great Work from The USA Of America. Looks Like actually somebody got the idea of how a linux os should look like. Somebody that actually thinks before they put a bunch of scripts together and kernels. I’m a computer builder and have taken 2 years of computer engineering and computer software design and from what i can see is that you have it rite on the nose. Good work my friend.

    Dear pavroo:
    Congratulations on a very fine distro right out of the box. I have been using openSUSE for a while and got interested in trying some new things because I had pretty much created all my own apps for a DE using C++ (Qt) or C (hobbiest programmer). I like to add a lot of extra functionality such as with my own filemanager taking advantage of resources available from the shell as well. I had not used Debian for a while but always respected its approach. Frankly, I love SparkyLinux. I stopped using the resource heavy DEs long ago (i.e., Gnome and KDE) so my choice was LXDE. I have gone so far as to use on other distros razor-qt or the QLWM that uses Qt. I also like to hack reasonable code to hook up to my GUIs such as ffplay from ffmpeg or add functionality to something like the qterm widget. SparkyLinux will be my Debian-based OS from now on.
    With kind regards

  34. July 14th, 2014 at 15:55 | #34

    It’s back (still on sourceforge).
    I didn’t expect that somebody can be still interesting with that.

    Torrent download is too slow, there are 1 or 2 seeds at most.
    Downloading directly save time.
    Today I will install Sparky linux openbox on my 1 GiB Desktop and Sparky linux openbox or Sparky linux gameover on my dual core 3rd generation 2 GiB RAM Laptop.

    I think it’s better to continue with openbox version.

    Which SparyLinux iso above is the “JWM” on ?
    Is it on the OpenBox one?, where is JWM


  37. August 16th, 2014 at 16:52 | #37

    The older version of Ultra Edition up to 3.2.
    You can find it on our account on sourceforge.

    Some of you are asking for torrent file… I know torrent does the job well but, when I last tried torrent download there were no seeds and direct download was faster, it only took a minute or two using direct link because I use 15 MBps connection. Torrent? No seeds… too slow… not even downloading. May be is a better torrent website. It’s very active torrent website. What about seeds? The problem is, there are few sparkylinux users. I consider sparylinux as the best linux distro, that is the best part of the deal and, the worst part of it is, it’s not famous enough. I know from experience the best linux distro – Sparkylinux is simply not attracted distro hoppers or other linux users. Even linux reviewers don’t make sparkylinux videos. There are very small number of Sparkylinux videos on youtube. I don’t have money to donate to this amazing work… But, some day I will, that is if Sparkylinux stays alive long enough. I just love Sparkylinux.

    When enlightenment desktop was introduced I think it grabbed the headlines…

    Then bodhilinux became famous.

    There were some expert opinions quoting bodhilinux among the best linux distros.

    Strange as it may seem… Sparkylinux does more but it doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

    Sparkylinux has E19 now and the most awkward thing is it doesn’t grab the headlines.

    What the hell?

    Great distribution. Have used 32 and 64 bit versions of lxde. Very well put together.

    Just a suggestion: consider adding soundjuicer to Menu > Sound&Video

    Thanks again!
