Well shoot, space is gonna be the rub doing that on my main machine, HD is pretty full up with two OS'es and a truckload of media files.
But as an alternative, I do have an older laptop, a PIII with 512mb of ram, I have already managed to install Zen mini on it, but was thinking of switching it to Neal's new LXDE mini to make it a little easier on the ol dog anyway, and it has a 120 gig drive I snagged out of a newer unit, with nothing right now on it but the OS. Would this be acceptable for packaging?
And secondly, I believe LXDE comes with PCmanFM, would I just install Thunar as an alternate FS and make it the default somehow, then load pkgutils-thunar and run it like that? Seems like that might be a great solution for me to get some good use out of the old lappy, and since I now have my whole system fully networked on PCLOS machines, I could easily share files amongst them in case I needed some extra files or storage or whatever.
Thanks again for being patient with the questions and sharing all the great info, it will be an excellent learning experience for me and a great skill to have, and i'll definitely use it to benefit the community here.
