Try the Slax (note spelling) self loading disk (downloadable free) 
if you are a programmer type.  Or put Slackware itself on a spare 

Been using Slackware since the 1990s.  All the tools needed to 
compile the latest Scribus are there by default.  I do an update to 
e1.3.5 now and then, but use for production.
