Projects / sous-marin


Sous-marin Linux is a small, pure, individualized Slackware installation system using only scripts and a minimum of resources. Sous-marin's utilities allow you to create an installer CD and tagfiles, choose the minimum of pure Slackware packages you need, and then FTP/HTTP install the system over the Net. It also includes sous-marin tools, formerly SlackBash scripts. These tools allow you to analyze any Slackware installation for missing libraries, files not in packages, packages dependencies, and so forth.

I am no longer using Slackware. If someone would like to update this project to Slackware current, I would be pleased to work with them. If all goes well, I would be willing to transfer ownership of the project.
