Here is my CFE entry for SliTaz:

SliTaz is a very lightweight Linux distribution. That means there isn't an applications menu or something like that. You can start X11 programs via the xterm. You can also start X11 programs with the dialog box Execute a File via the Workbench menu.

Hi
Yes event2 but that only give me mouse.
Strange because I tried SliTaz for a while ago and I got keyboard and mouse there. I have not changed anything in my setup since then. I use an IBM acces usb keyboard with mouse via the USB port on the keyboard.

Yes, that's strange. Maybe you have to use another device file for /dev/input/mice.

Ciao Christian,
this distro is only for X1000 or even for X5000 ?

I haven't tried it on a X5000 yet but in my point of view it should also work on a X5000. SliTaz isn't a normal desktop distribution. It's more for tinkering.

in case I want to try with the X5000, what I need and what commands I have to give. Since I have problems with USB ports I tried to burn a cd with the kernel and the dtb inside and can read it without problems with "load scsi". Any suggestions ?

P.S. I have downloaded slitaz25 from your site.
