Kwort is Still Around?

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for
this link. ]

“It seems Kwort is still using a modified Slackware installer
(or else CRUX has one very similar). Install was fast and easy,
booting the new system not so much. Beware, Kwort is still using
LiLo. After boot I added a user and tried to run X -configure. That
shot an error – my dual monitors confused it I guess. So, I cheated
and found a basic single display config, copied it over, and
started X.

“A very minimal desktop and sparse menu were available. I don’t
know much about Openbox and the “Reconfigure Openbox” in the menu
did nothing. The package manager kpkg, which usually works very
much like APT, seemed to have issues as well.

“I’m not sure when or why Kwort made the switch from cute little
desktop system to minimal ‘need for speed’ system, but I liked it
better in the old days. I’m sure its target audience and loyal
users like it just fine, but that’s not me. “
