I'd like  to bring attention to fork of IceWM at

Official release, 1.3.8 is several years old, and have some bugs, like taskbar autohide and 'reboot' and 'shudown' entries in 'logout' menu. Github fork, version 1.3.11, resolves those bugs and adds some new features.  I wasn't aware of it until several days ago, when I downloaded source code. It is built without problem on Vector and I have been using it ever since.
If there is interest I might try to build VL package out of it, which is something I have never tried before.

... And, more importantly, how would you do it ?

Thats the thing.   I woulndnt.  If anyone has a problem with the learning curve they face when switching from windows to linux, this does not help at all.  Instead this creates the potential for a complete system break down.  I still fail to see how this speeds anything up or help anyhing.  Everything in an OS installation lives where it does for a reason.  You start moving stuff around and all of the sudden you compilers cant find development libraries, you programs cant find other libraries they depend on, etc.   Ot to mention, if you ever got anything to compile, it woud pick up dependencies that nobody else has, so this is whay i said it the firat time you posted.  This whole idea is asinine.  You done help anybody with this, instead you troll dofferent forums asking others for this.  I can appreciate anyone improving upon anything, but this is not improving.  This is breaking with the hope of inproving based on a principle that is just utterly wrong. 

Like i said before, if you really  do believe the change in system paths can speed anything up, build a linux sustem from scratch and shape it with the paths you want.  Then benchmark it agains whoever you want and prove your point.  Until then, i must also repeat.... Not Interested

Converting a package does not magically allow it to be installed on another Distro. More often than not, breakage occurs, or more commonly, the package fails to install due to how things are stored or missing dependencies.

And what is it with this "drive lettering" crap?

These scripts are poorly written, assume a bunch of stuff from debian is available and then installs more debian stuff.  Its really an ugly way to royally break a working OS

Exactly what did I do wrong ? And, more importantly, how would you do it ?
Agreeably, I use debian packages, but I did convert it using tazpkg convert, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

For the drive letter renaming, I can only assume there will be other members that don't like the linux drive lettering neither (neither in slitaz nor vector linux), and using symbolic links doesn't break anything. Will work on it myself off course if no one's interested, but it would have sped up a lot with some help.

Solved. I guess.

Well,Sort of.  ;)

In the screensaver preferences I set "Blank after" to 1 minute (the minimum). And I activated "Lock Screen After", and set the time-out to 0. Now the screensaver kicks in after 1 minute and locks the screen. That is acceptable.

Sorry about that.

The better question was asked during development, but I'll rephrase it here and ask it again.

If you 're a fairly regular 7.1 Light user, what browser do you use most for viewing web pages online?
