    Hello

    I am a bit confused about Slitaz … is it alive as the last release was a year ago?

    if alive then

    is cooking the stable secure and long term supported version and rolling the latest and greatest?

    Regards

    sagar

    why you think it is dead – lots of post in the forum, lots of commits in hg

    and you should not use anything else than 4.0 – rolling is under development and not ready for a new cooking

    Funny how Debian has a two year release cycle and nobody asks if it’s dead or not. Oh well, just because we don’t always release at a set time doesn’t mean we won’t. To quote most open source projects: It’ll be ready when it’s ready.

    Is SliTaz an independent operating system? or is based on: Debian, Slackware? I am a neophyte, but I am a lover of Debian…

    No, SliTaz was made from scratch and isn’t based on any other distro out there. It even has it’s own packages system and can use debian, fedora and slackware packages if converted properly.

    Also note that not all debian based distros are good – Hannah Montana Linux being a prime example…

    I know this is not the topic, but, I tried to install slitaz 4 and, for some reason it stopped working. I have dual boot (with Mint on the other partition) but didn’t want to format the partition.
    When I try to run slitaz, it says “init.d missing”. Is there a way to repair without destroying my slitaz from Mint? Any to just reinstall it?
    Please

    /etc/init.d contains scripts for starting/stopping slitaz and its services:
    root@slitaz:/home/tux# ls -la /etc/init.d

    Boot the slitaz live cd you installed from, mount the drive partition containing slitaz install with the init.d not found error.
    If /etc/init.d is missing on the mounted install copy it from the filesystem your currently booted into.
    Verify all files in /etc/init.d are owned by root.root rwx.r-x.r-x
