I booted from a DVD. No networking and low res video because the Nvidia driver was not compatible with my system. I fixed the networking and managed to load Nouveau so my video was fixed. But, it's slow as hell, even when run from ram. Gave the Refracta tools a go to save a session so I could burn it to a DVD and not have to go through the video and networking issues every time I boot. There's no DVD burning app in ExTix, so I copied the files off to another partition. Refracta didn't work. I got only a 0 byte SHA256 file. I give up. I was looking for a speedy, Puppy Linux like distro that runs in ram, but was more polished.

One of the best small distros in Distrowatch. Fast with current up-to-date subsystems for SAMBA, kernel, and JAVA.

Flexible as it allow both persistence and the ability to replicate the running system via Remaster.

Excellent, excellent, excellent.
