Taking the Challenge!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Here I am in linux debian with a base install with nothing but command line.. at first.

On a Acer Aspire One netbook that has the 8inch screen. Looking to keep the memory footprint small.

Still need a few things: SUGGESTIONS PLEASE
messenger program,browser, sound, mail client
Am I missing something?

So far I have installed:

sudo - working
fluxbox - working but I spent hours trying to modify it and I admit I got almost no where
xterm - working
xorg - working
wicd, wicd-curses - working though curses will take time to learn

Edit - Thought thunderbird would work but apt-get failed and checking debian.org revealed it is not a listed package.

Update -

Got java, iceweasel, icedove, fluxbox(working but not customized), alsa/alsautils, flash and audacious installed.

As for hardware, all I have left is the sd card slot and webcam.
