  • add rfkill so users can switch on/off their wifi devices
  • consider adding shortcuts to apps which will auto-install and then run
  • find out a way how to make pcmanfm open files in appropriate applications, like png images in feh
  • test EFI support in virtualbox according to this post
  • make xlunch in Slax search for icons in /usr/share/pixmaps too, else many apps won't show up in the list
  • make xlunch rely on Terminal=true/false settings in .desktop entry, do not guess
  • if there are more rows with icons in xLunch, next row is displayed at the bottom of screen, should be on top
  • include libdrm-intel1, libgl1-mesa-dri, libglu1-mesa packages in Slax for direct rendering. Adds 8 MB :(
  • allright, add /usr/share/games to PATH
  • Check hotkeys in alsa config (enabling volumeUp/Dn/mute buttons)
  • If filesystem is not known, do not add partition to fstab, else it fails miserably
  • more to come

  • add nonfree firmware drivers for WIFI support
  • add wicd network manager
  • auto-update xlunch each time it starts so users see newly installed apps
  • make keyboard layout persistent
  • update booting (fix ntfs/ext4 support, add newest syslinux)
