Thanks for your job.
I was looking for system requirements of this system. Could you tell me, what are they?
Sorry for my English.

Funniest thing is, that memory usage is same as in XFCE edition. System, in my opinion, runs with the same speed like Xfce.
1. When I start installing system without configuring Wi-fi card, installation stop in "getting time zone from server" moment. I was wait 15 min, and nothing.
2. When I try configure Wi-fi, in Wicd program (on live CD, before installation), i was experience program crush. First - program window was displayed, but it was blank. When I reboot system, and enter advanced settings to Wi-fi connection, program again stopped. Clicking on OK button gives nothing. In third try (after reboot) everything was ok.
3. After installation and using system about two minutes, my mouse gone crazy. Self booting apps, desktop switching - I could only press power button. I have no problems after installing XFCE version. After reboot system is working good, till now.
4 When I run LiveCD startup sound wan not played smoothly. (In my opinion it is useless option in LiveCD)
In my opinion.
1. Sound control icon in tray is missing, it is very useful thing.
2 After installation network configuration was not copied from liveCD. I had to configure it one more time.
3 Reboot button - when I press it I must enter my password. (I know that I could change it, but it should be changed by default)
Thats all for now. If I found anything else I'll write about it.

1 I think you could use Wmix to volume control. Its not in tray, but it provides some cool functions (mute, stereo etc.) and also it is installing without any dependences. What do you think about it?
Also I have research some sound mixers, becouse I have noticed you have used XFCE-Mixer. I found similar some programs witch could interest you.
Tkmixer - 1 dependence - TK8.4
Gamix - installed without any dependences
There is also pavucontrol, but after installation it gives me error.
What do you think about this:
1 Throw away GDM and install Slim in his place. Slim is lightest than GDM, and it will no install any useless dependences.
2 Throw away Gnome music player, and install Audacious in his place. It could be another music player, but this is very good and I think it not eat too much system resources.
I think that Linux Mint Fluxbox version should be Gnome, XFCE, KDE apps free. I know that this is hard work to do, but if you want I could help you with find light apps.

I'm interested, but I don't know if I have sufficient knowledge.

Following successful installation of these updates, neither Fluxbox RC1 nor XFCE Final will boot if a flash storage device (flash stick) is present at any USB port. Boot progress is halted and does not resume if the key is unplugged.
Booting in the recovery mode, I note that the flash key is correctly recognized and registered, but the boot halts about a dozen lines later at the beginning of CD-ROM drive detection. The system stll recognizes key removal and insertion (reported on screen) but the boot process just stops. Reboot with the key (any of my several) disconnected and Elyssa boots perfectly.
I must emphasize that this was not a problem in either release until the last "batch" of available software updates were installed using Synaptic (simply by clicking "Mark all updates").
