Sparky Bonsai is a portable Linux distribution based on Debian/SparkyLinux.
Taking advantage of the experience of portable distros such as Slax, Porteus, Puppy, and DebianDog, they made a remix of their favorite Debian-based distro SparkyLinux.
Sparky Bonsai lives in a USB flash 4GB minimum and run with 512 MB of RAM on x86 processors. At the moment, itâ€™s only available in the 64bit version. It fits on a DVD or CD optical disk and runs in ext2/3/4, fat32, xfs, exFAT file systems. To load it to RAM, 1GB is recommended.
Sparky Bonsai use PCmanFM as file/desktop manager and JWM as windows manager. JWMâ€™s menu construction is based on xdgmenumaker. It comes with Pale Moon as the default web browser, Mousepad as the default text editor, and LXterminal as the default terminal emulator. All DebianDogâ€™s module and remaster scripts are included as well.
The synaptic package manager is present, and you can install all Debian and Sparkylinux packages. The BusterDogâ€™s repository is inactive because of some Antix packets incompatible with Debian. You can use some packets if youâ€™re sure they are compatible, but DONT update your system with this repository enabled.
Theyâ€™ve tested it by troubleshooting and repairing other systems, booting diskless machines, checking used PCs for buying, hacking windows-locked office PCs, using machines with no traces, and many more.
