Damn Small Linux Not – a Live CD Linux distribution based on the Knoppix. It takes less than 50 MB and is optimized for the i386 platform. The window manager in this distribution is both JWM and Fluxbox. This distribution is no longer being developed.
The distribution uses its own MyDSL package manager and the .dsl, .uci and .unc formats, which include, among others, OpenOffice.org, GIMP, Skype or Opera. After installation on the hard drive, it is possible to unlock the apt manager and use Debian-specific .deb packages.
This Damn Small Linux Not (DSL-N) is a version of DSL, which had more requirements and took up more space. It has not reached full stability – the last version is signed with the number 0.1RC4 and is no longer developed.
DSL-N is not an evolution of DSL, it is not intended as progress over the philosophy of DSL, but is intended for a different user, or the same user under different circumstances.
