Please keep in mind that we're talking older software on newer hardware here. The amd64 (x86-64) platform came to desktops with the AMD Athlon 64, which gave the Pentium 4 a run for the money. Only some later versions of the P4 were 64 bit capable.

Point is, if you're running a 64 bit system, you should have plenty of power to run a modern desktop environment. I suspect mostly diehard IceWM veterans, who don't mind a few quirks, will be interested in this setup. My salutations!

Also, until a gmrun package makes it into our repo:
http://slackware.org.uk/slacky/slackware64-13.37/desktop/gmrun/0.9.2/gmrun-0.9.2-x86_64-1sl.txz

I build gmrun for VL 7.0...pls try it
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/gmrun-0.9.2-x86_64-1vl70.txz
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64/gmrun-0.9.2-x86_64-1vl70.txz

This mod will give you the IceWM window manager with pcmanfm-mod managing the desktop. Included are scripts for auto-mounting removable media without using hal or gvfs.

Know issues:
The trash feature is not supported.
Auto-mount only works on media inserted after login. Drives with media already present will be ignored.

I use VL 7.0 Light with fluxbox and pcmanfm...I able to make trashcan working in pcmanfm...install gvfs and modify the xinitrc.fluxbox as below...you must have dbus install for it to work...

Thank you, hata_ph.

64-bit version tests good. Will need to do another 32-bit install to test the other one later.

Appreciate the info on modifying the WM launcher. I did try that, but had several issues with that configuration, at least while showing desktop icons. Maybe fluxbox handles it differently from icewm.

32-bit package works fine too.

Now, if we could get the issue with the udisks/mdadm package(s) fixed, the mod package could go into repo.  :)

Udisks has an unsatisfied dep of mdadm:
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=17395.msg96057#msg96057

Not sure if mdadm is really needed for udisks, but it would be nice to have in the repo anyway.

Have what should be the final version. First, the deps:
Code: [Select]
ORBit2 >= 2.14.19
aumix >= 2.9.1
gmrun >= 0.9.2
gtkdialog >= 0.8.0
icewm >= 1.3.7
libatasmart >= 0.17
obmixer >= 0.11
udisks >= 1.0.4
upower >= 0.9.15
yad >= 0.19.0
zenity >= 2.30.0
Until package is in repo, you need to manually install all of these first.
If you add it to a full VL64-7.0, there should be no problem.
On a stripped down install, you may need to forcefully install udisks.

Finally, the (unofficial) mod package: http://cincibjj.com/tmp/icewmvmods-3-x86_64-4vl70.txz
