Since my AntiX 8.5 Asus EEEPC 900 install is just purring along just fine. Plus. I gotta be careful when using apt-get dist-upgrade, because of only having 4 gig SSD drive for root "/". I like to try out browsers that I can run static from /home (which is on my 16gig SSD drive) so as to keep space free for /.

I grabbed it from here: http://www.srware.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1945

Downloaded to /home and extracted it i /home. Then deleted tar file download.

My Menu and Toolbar entry in Icewm.
Code:
prog "Iron" /mnt/sdb1/home/harry/iron-linux/product_logo_48.png /mnt/sdb1/home/harry/iron-linux/iron


Have not tested my Menu entry yet in Fluxbox. Will come back later after i SWITCH desktop sessions.
Fluxbox Menu entry:

Edit: Yeah. My entry works in Fluxbox also.
Code:
[exec] (Iron) {/mnt/sdb1/home/harry/iron-linux/iron}


Not a lot of extensions showing yet. But google-chrome extensions do work as I just installed adthwart from google-chrome extensions and it works.

Greetings . I am using an EeePC 900a. I have similar storage setup as you. I did some changes in the partitioning scheme in order to have more space for binaries. I split system files between 2 drives. Here is a look at my file system (df -h)

Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1             5.6G  3.0G  2.3G  57% /
none                  491M  256K  491M   1% /dev
none                  497M  1.6M  495M   1% /dev/shm
none                  497M  212K  497M   1% /var/run
none                  497M     0  497M   0% /var/lock
/dev/sdb5             9.2G  6.7G  2.1G  77% /home
/dev/sda5             277M   51M  213M  20% /boot
/dev/sda6             1.3G   34M  1.2G   3% /tmp
/dev/sda7             1.3G  489M  730M  41% /var


SDA is my 4gig ssd drive. SDB is a 16 gig hcsd drive. Your 16gig ssd should be much faster

Yeah. Mine is simpler cuz when I installed and setup /home on sdb . I was venturing into virgin territory. I installed AntiX to 4gig SSD. Then moved /home to secondary 16gig SSD and symlinked it to / (/home) on sda.
Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1             3.7G  1.8G  1.8G  51% /
tmpfs                1009M  4.0K 1009M   1% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M  268K  9.8M   3% /dev
tmpfs                1009M  4.0K 1009M   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb1              15G  4.1G   11G  29% /mnt/sdb1
/var/tmp             1009M  4.0K 1009M   1% /var/tmp
/var/tmp             1009M  272K 1009M   1% /var/log
tmpfs                  64M     0   64M   0% /media/ramdisk


My /etc/fstab (customized by me)
Code:
# Pluggable devices are handled by uDev, they are not in fstab
/dev/sda1 / auto defaults,noatime 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ext2 auto,users,exec,noatime,errors=remount-ro 1 1
tmp  /tmp  tmpfs  defaults,noatime  0 0
tmp  /var/log  tmpfs    defaults,noatime  0 0
# Dynamic entries below
/dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 vfat noauto,users,gid=users,dmask=002,fmask=113,relatime 0 0
tmpfs /media/ramdisk tmpfs size=64M,nr_inodes=10k,mode=777 0 0


I've been doing OK keeping / on sda at 1.8 gig doing apt-get dist-upgrade so far. Anything I can run static from /home is a plus for me. Iron starts up quick and runs quick from crappy 16 gig Phison SSD.

roky some tips to save space, don't know if you use them, but they keep my antix at 1 gb:
apt-get remove --purge packagename (remove any app you don't use)
apt-get clean (removes package debs from /var/cache/apt/archives/)
apt-get autoremove --purge (remove packages that are no longer needed)
orphaner --purge (same as above but more advanced)
delete the content of /usr/share/man (manuals)
delete the content of /usr/share/doc (documentation)
delete the content of /usr/src (kernel sources)
delete the content of /usr/share/icons/ (only the ones that you don't use, don't delete hicolor)
delete the content of /var/log (not the folders only the files)
delete the content of /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfree
delete /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin and var/cache/apt/srcpkgcache.bin but they are created at every dist-upgrade
install localepurge and set it to your language (deletes all the languages except the one that you use) i also delete everything from /usr/share/locale after that, not recommended if you don't use english.

Yeah. I locale-purged, used orphan and autoclean, but not some of the others like manuals and /var/log yet. Good ideas there Ice. Will look into that tomorrow when my mind has rested. I do my best borking when eyes and mind are tired. :D
