SliTaz provides a tiny package manager which can easily install more software on the system. Tazpkg is a lightweight package manager for .tazpkg files. Completely written in SHell script, it works well with Busybox ash shell and bash. Tazpkg lets you list, install, remove, download, extract, pack, search, or get information about available or installed packages. You can also repack an installed package and automatically upgrade all installed packages.With
Note that you can now browse the generated files, modify the cooking receipt file again or just rebuild the package.When you are happy with your work you can install the package with tazpkg install and then test the application or library.
This document gives information and necessary instructions on how to install SliTaz on a hard disk. This should take about 10 minutes, SliTaz core LiveCD expands to 80 MB, so we suggest a minimum of 120 MB of free space. This way you will be able to install a few more packages. If you can use the LiveCD, you should be able to install SliTaz.You may also do a frugal or unusual install.
Next is the partition configuration. You will need to have a partition ready; the installer does not set-up your disk for you. If you already have a free partition you can use it; if not you will have to create one graphically using GParted, or from the command line using fdisk.
With a target partition prepared and the installation media made accessible, we need to copy the files from the media into the target partition and then extract the compressed file-system (rootfs.gz).
SliTaz 3.0 comes with a new but very well tested 126.96.36.199 Linux kernel and a complete newbuild toolchain from which the whole system has been built. The 188.8.131.52 Linux kernel isseparated into several linux-packages for supporting additional drivers and features. This timewe have also built-in some more drivers to have a faster kernel boot.
The installation is fully automated and can be done graphically or in textmode. The slitaz installer now lets you use a separate partition for/home, configure the root password and chose the default user login.The installer also now supports installation from a LiveUSB session.
On the update side, mostly all the packages have been updated, includingthe kernel, toolchain, Xorg (7.4), GTK and Qt. The package format hasalso changed to support lzma for better compression and fasterdownloads. Packages are also checked by Tazwok to ensure the FHS is followedand packages are now built automatically by the SliTaz Build Bot:bb.slitaz.org
The core desktop provides a selection of multi-use packages for surfing theweb, listening to music, audio editing, image manipulation and developing orburning to optical media. It's just one click in the application menu to findinstalled software by category.
so then i download the .deb from chrome.google.comi converted it to tazpkg using:>tazpkg convert "google-chrome.deb" (i renamed the file)no errorsinstalled the tazpkgall OK
I'm not at the computer now. Start search chrome executable at the location /opt/...Debian packages not suitable for SliTaz. Chrome installed into /opt instead of /usr/bin, /usr/lib and /usr/share. I converted chrome too about a couple of weeks ago. I remember, you need cups installed, and make several soft links to existing libraries. Maybe, add /opt/... to PATH.
And that comment was helpful how? I recently used get-flash-plugin (as in 2 days ago) and it downloaded and installed perfectly fine. BUT it crashed Midori and TazWeb and refused to work with Firefox. Clearly this is the fault of the plugin and NOT SliTaz. Please refrain from commenting unless you can add something helpful to the discussion.

The output you posted indicates:Your still using the broken script from SliTaz 4.0 repo.To install a tazpkg of the same name you must either remove the old one first or use --forced to overwrite the old with the new.Remnants from failed google-chrome-unstable must be removed.
Hi, this thread's a little old but I thought I'd try asking here anyways. I'm trying to get chrome working in slitaz 5 rc2 live. I only went through the commands in Mojo's last post and I'm not sure if those were standalone instructions but from the output in terminal it seems unstable chrome was installed instead(probably because 1.03 couldn't be). My broad goal here is to get flash running in a browser and in my experience chrome(& chromium) has been the easiest way of doing that in Linux. So, even though it seems to have installed, it's not showing up in programs, I can't get it to run from "run" when I go to applications even though it autocompletes with "google-chrome-unstable", when I start typing & I'm not sure what to type in terminal either but chrome, run chrome, run google-chrome-unstable haven't done anything.
Updated 5.0-rc2 with get-google-chrome script from 5.0 repo.I don't want to have to re-download 47MB source archive if the script excludes files.I comment most rm commands from /usr/bin/get-google-chrome so everything is preserved in /tmp.There were errors when get-google-chrome script was running the install on generated google-chrome-unstable tazpkg concerning xdg-resource-icon adding google-chrome-unstable icons to the system.No Applications/Internet/Google Chrome (unstable) shortcut.There is no google-chrome-unstable.desktop on system.Browser launches from terminal as user tux with command google-chrome-unstableI use dpkg-deb to get google-chrome-unstable.desktop from google-chrome-unstable_current_i386.deb.Add launcher to menu:Download attached google-chrome-unstable.desktop.txtcp google-chrome-unstable.desktop.txt /usr/share/applications/google-chrome-unstable.desktopMenu icon:cp /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_32.png /usr/share/pixmaps/google-chrome-unstable.png
One of the major advantages of installing SliTaz on the hard disk is that it allows you to tweak the system and install additional applications. To do the latter, SliTaz provides its own package manager called Tazpkg. Similar to apt-get on Debian, Tazpkg allows you to install and manage packages on your system easily.
To install a package with Tazpkg, launch the package manager by choosing System Tools | Package manager from the SliTaz menu. To become root, use the su command, then run the recharge command to refresh the list of packages available on the official mirror. To see whether the mirror contains the package you want to install, you can use the search command, for example:
After you've tweaked the system to your liking and installed the packages you need, you can turn it into a customized version of the SliTaz Live CD. To do so, use Tazlito , SliTaz's easy-to-use distribution remastering tool, which can generate a ready-to-use .iso image based on your current system (Figure 5). To launch the tool, choose SliTaz Menu | System Tools | Tazlito LiveCD Tool and press the Gen running distro button. It takes Tazlito about 5-10 minutes (or longer, depending on how many packages you have installed on your system) to generate the .iso image, which you can then burn onto a CD.
Tazlito has other clever tricks up its sleeve. For example, you can create a ready-to-burn disk image from the list of available SliTaz derivatives called flavors. To do this, switch to the Flavors section on the SliTaz LiveCD Tool and press the Recharge list button to refresh the list of available flavors. To view the list of SliTaz flavors, press List flavors, then pick the one you want and enter its name in the field. Next, press the Get flavor button to obtain the required configuration files, and press Gen flavor distro to generate an ISO image of the flavor. You can use Tazlito to burn the generated image to a CD, but this command is not accessible through the Tazlito LiveCD Tool, so you have to run the tazlito burn-iso command in the terminal.
Despite its size, SliTaz is a surprisingly well-featured Linux distribution. The hand-picked software selection will help you stay productive, and nifty tools like Tazpkg and Tazlito allow you to install additional packages and roll out your own version of SliTaz.
It is easiest to install Git on Linux using the preferred package manager of your Linux distribution. If you prefer to build from source, you can find tarballs on kernel.org. The latest version is 2.39.1. Debian/Ubuntu For the latest stable version for your release of Debian/Ubuntu
For now the only installation option is to have 3 partitions on the SDcard then run the install.sh script from a Linux system. In time we will try to provide a disk image for MS Windows and OSX users.
By default SliTaz Raspberry Pi provides some tiny and low footprintservers and some additional services can be installed via the Spkpackages manager. Installed servers are ftpd, httpd, tftpd, ntpd,udhcpd and the Dropbear SSH server. MPD, the best audio server isalso on the mirror.
By default, Tiny Core includes the base OS, assuming you have an Ethernet connection to the internet so you can install only the applications you need. It's such an extremely efficient model that it doesn't even include an application to install the OS (although you can download it from the Tiny Core repository when you're ready to install).
You have several options to install Tiny Core. You can install it to a thumb drive formatted as a Linux drive (this requires your computer to allow booting from a USB drive, which is common in most modern PCs but was less common for older ones), to a Microsoft FAT thumb drive (a hack for PCs that don't normally boot from USB drives), or even to a directory in an existing Linux partition. 2b1af7f3a8
