UPDATE TO PREVIOUS REVIEW: To fix the inability to add the volume icon to the panel (from the panel's preferences), I installed the package...
...and added it to the autostart applications.
FANTASTIC system!!! :)
If you're interested in a source-based distro, I would HIGHLY recommend Venom Linux! It's very easy to install, and the developer has made it very easy to maintain the system.
Based on LFS with inspiration from Crux...you'll find many packages in the repos, and chances are that you may not have to build your own packages from source unless you have certain needs.
The package manager is great, and the community is second to none.
Easy to install, has its own package manager, great support, great community, fun to use
I've been running the Openbox version for several months...absolutely a wonderful experience! I love and appreciate the minimalist approach, and everything just works. It was a joy to see 32bit versions included in this day when even many Linux distros are dropping 32bit support! Well done! If you want an easy-to-use Openbox distro that will allow you to customize it the way that you want, this should be at the top of your list! Light on resources and fast in performance...it will bring your old computer back to life or let your new computer fly like never before. Many thanks to the developer for all of his time and effort in making this available for others to use! The developer has given us something special in CROWZ!
