    It looks like the linuxtracker is down.
    It happens sometimes, we have to wait.

    I would like to help you with this project. I use linux since 5-6 ago and I think that it is a very nice distro with some interesting ideas. I have programming knowledge in this languages:

    * C++
    * Java
    * Python

    I know the OOP, pointers(C++), referencies (C++), abstract class, list, files, exceptions, socket, etc. I learned all in Internet (youtube, and other webs)
    I can also help like Beta-Tester.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dzieki za odpowiedz.

    Core to bardziej kojarzy mi sie z sama konsola (chociaz tez moglaby byc). Mam bardziej na mysli wersje ze srodowiskiem graficznym (Sparky Look&Feel) + terminal, jakis notatnik itp. male programiki (moze jeszcze jakas przegladarka i program pocztowy), reszta bylaby instalowana wedlug potrzeb przez uzytkownika. Osobiscie lubie male dystrybucje. Takie DVD to zjada mi caly zapas bonusowych GB.

    • pavroo says:

      Próbowałem ale mija się z celem. Sam system podstawowy + wszystkie dodatkowe sterowniki + lxde lub openbox to ponad 900 mb iso. Więc Core będzie bez całkowicie x-ów.

  8. Trenejro says:


    Fajnie, ze jest jeszcze jakas “zyjaca” polska distrybucja. Znacie jakies inne polskie dystrybucje, ktore sa ciagle rozwijane?

    Na koniec pytanie.

    Nie daloby sie zrobic wersji minimal lub base, tak do 256mb?

    • pavroo says:

      Są inne, trzeba tylko poszperać na polskich forach. Wersja core? Nasłuchuj na kanale rss 🙂

    @ Alfredo
    I think you have run Sparky 2.0 from USB, have you? I suggest to try it from DVD instead of USB.

    Hi Paul. Thank’s for your nice words. I wish to make fluxbox lite 2.x version, but I don’t have time now. But… I’ll think about it and I’ll see what I can do next month.

  13. Paul Walker says:

    Hi. I love the 2.0 however I have an older pc and it was a bit sluggish. i had to revert to 1.0. I love getting a fresh install and watching a new system fly on my older 2006 pc. 1.0 was awesome. I am just wondering if you guys are continuing making the lite versions cause that is the 1.0 i was using. I would love to see 2.0 lite or also 3.0 lite when you finally get it ready. can’t wait if you could bring these editions back. I love the idea of lite versions leaving the end user to install what they want. this is great for using for gaming or anything to make sure that the cpu/ram resources are kept at a minimum. also e17 is awesome and they finally have their final release. again great job. i see it is catching on

  14. pavroo says:

    Thank’s, I have added ‘How to help’ on this page.
    I’ll rebuild FAQ section first and I’ll put my doing list at sourceforge after so it’ll be clear what’s to do now. If you have your own ideas don’t hesitate and write it down, please.
