This is antiX-base with gnome-lite installed.

Note the RAM use!

Hi Anti:

That looks pretty good and the ram use (or lack of use!) is amazing.

Me being curious by nature. I googled around a bit to see what might be the difference between Gnome lite and Gnome full.

So I think this dependency chart sums it up quite nicely. :)

Besides just saying it does not come with Open Office. I might have to give it a whirl later.

I echo plvera regarding the ram use.

This gnome-lite thing is in the meta-package installer? I'm guessing it comes with the menu, panel and desktop handling but with no background services?

-edit- let's see the chart of rokytnji's.
-edit2- didn't understand really.

secipolla, yes it is in the meta-installer.
apt-get install gnome-core brings in the same.

I haven't played much with Antix-base, but I'm tempted to try it and add DWM just to see if DWM will do better than even gnome-lite (in terms of RAM use), since DWM currently does better than fluxbox in my system.

It will be much lighter. antiX-base and fluxbox uses 25MB RAM on the same set up as antiX-gnome.

No way!

I wanted to see how light gnome was on antiX, compared to xfce, kde4, openbox, icewm and fluxbox.
I was surprised that gnome wasn't such a RAM hog as I thought. It is still more than xfce and lxde though.

AntiX looks nice with gnome...and just add the gnome apps you need, and if you got the RAM and diskspace to spare 8)

For M11 Gnome-core 2.30 is in the repos, and most likely you'd want to get rid of Slim and replace it with GDM ;)

anti,
Really nice!!
I have given some thought to trying an XFCE meta-build myself. Does one install it to the antiX base?
I've tried to add it to the M11 Full and got a "Thumbnail error" of some sort.

Uh oh! I'm getting the impulse to try something new. :D
