slax build distro

What's so great about Slax? Well, it allows you to download the iso file with exactly what applications you want, nothing more, nothing less. Just download the module, add it to the folder in the Slax ISO, burn, and away you go!

That was ages ago, and Slax has come a long way since then. The system is even more slick now, allowing you to customize your ISO before you even download it.

To get started, just head over to the Slax: build page. Apps are organized by category and the collection is fully searchable as well. When you're done adding, head back to the build page to review your selections. If you're missing any dependencies, the page will alert you. At some point in the future, you'll also be able to add them all in a single click.

It's an excellent tool for putting together a lightweight Live CD or USB image tailored to your specific needs.
