Default Looking for a Debian based Linux distro

Hi Everybody,

This might be a bit off-topic. Anyway, I am looking for a Debian based
Linux distribution (liveCD or something that can be installed on a
pendrive) that is mostly command line oriented (just a fluxbox like
WM maybe, but most of the things done via command prompt, also
with C/C++/Python available 'out of the box').

Does anyone know of anything that fits the above requirement?
Otherwise I might have to start with Sidux and use aptoncd or something
like that to create one.

Regards,
Santanu Chatterjee

First let me say, sorry about that last message….my
fault when I did the wrong keyboard shortcut which sent the email before I had
replied :-[

Anyway, back to the topic…

If you want to roll your own live USB stick distro, try http://debian-live.alioth.debian.org/
It is really easy to do and while the instructions are still being updated,
there is most certainly enough to get you started.

Have fun!

Damn Small Linux is based on Knoppix is based on Debian.
Ubuntu has a live CD although i wouldn't consider it light...
Linux From Scratch is not debian based but does have a liveCD and you
can do whatever you want.
But hey, look, a search engine gave me this:
