Making System Rescue CD great again, sorry, slim [solved]

I've noticed that recent ISO images of sysresccd have become substantially larger without a comparable increase in a number of new applications/utilities/etc. I'd love to know why SysResCD comes with these features which have a very tangential relation to data recovery: ⋅ Mesa drivers &sdo...

Re: Can we get the Midori browser back?

I second this request. NetSurf doesn't work pretty much on every website where JS is used (and yes I know JS support is disabled by default, but when I enable it, JS doesn't work as in normal proven browsers). With NetSurf I cannot check my e-mail, cannot browse certain websites, etc. etc. etc. Plea...

Re: Lack of ClamAV

It has such a low detection rate it's hardly useful at all.

Read AV-comparatives. ClamAV misses more than 30% viruses in the wild. It's unacceptable.

Re: GSmartControl - HDD checker

while gsmartcontrol looks eye candy to gui users, remember that most sysrcd users are experienced admins who prefer the command line. every tool which duplicates functionality and comes with larger package size should be avoided, imho.... We still have both parted & gparted here, so why not to ...

Please remove epdfview

Please remove epdfview from SysRescCD.
It's slow, buggy, totally abandoned and no longer available upstream.
We should either replace it with evince compiled with a minimum dependencies set (as Debian have done), or maybe something like zathura suggested on Gentoo forums.

Re: Please update smartmontools

SysRescCD 8.0 has smartmontools 6.1 (it's not very old, but still not the latest available one).

Re: Sound Support?

You don't need to embed sound drivers into the kernel itself (no one needs sounds during start up), thus you can leave them in the main image (sysrcd.dat). As for sysrcd.dat - you can compress all the kernel drivers including sound modules using XZ and uncompress on boot only the ones that match the...

Cannot shutdown from Xfce session logout

The reboot and shutdown buttons are greyed out. One can use shutdown from a terminal, but seeing Xfce is a graphical environment it would be nice if this was fixed.

Please include udevil

The previous thread asked for SpaceFM to be included; however, it cannot mount any disks. It needs a backend (preferably udevil) for this purpose.
