maybe a NOx base with cb-welcome and then the desktop version too. Kind of a step behind the old 9.04 release then up into current crunchdom. Overall the nowadays crunchang infrastructure is golden. Source packages and all.. Also the desktop is about the most sane before you enter favoratism. Then the whole git dev commit thing that's been used so far used some more would be the icing on the cake. Hope it just gets better and better.
Yo tambien @elk.
That zipper is terribly questionable.
Cm10? That's what's I'm running dude.
@doom & cc gutterslob
pkgsrc is great one of the best. It's a tad stagnant though. On the note of portability, it's cool how you can take it and put it on debian or whatever and add a ports system. The only drawback is it's stagnant. ( I just realized, stagnant is perfect for debian stable!)
Probably the best in practice I've seen is paludis/exheres on exherbo. Just the spec and all is great. Also homebrew on mac is cool in that it uses ruby.
Here's an FVWM ebuild template, that you'd need to put in a local overlay to include those nasty unsupported bells and whistles on 32 or 64 bit Gentoo like rounded windows.
It's basically a gentoo version of arch's fvwm+.
Just out of interest, what's difficult with Debian because I hear this more and more i.e. Arch is easier? I know it has a few questions in the installer that can throw a new user but that's it.
Re the wireless, last time I looked the Arch beginner guide had conflicting wireless instructions and when I finally got it up and running I had to read the wiki to sort it all out. Although again I suppose it depends on your skillz. Partitioning during the Ubuntu installer was hair-raising the first time.
Arch has the WiFi menu script now which is like grmls sort of and if you have a driver and or firmware it will get you up and going. A little time spent with iwconfig and WPA supplicant will make the whole WiFi problem obsolete no matter what distro you fancy.
That's interesting. The only thing I've delved into Garage band level wise is iPhoto. It's got some good tweaks and RAW processing support. It's not like Darktable by any means which is my normal workflow, but does a pretty good job with a nice shot. Yeah, proprietary systems usually have support for the blobs and sort, Roland seems a prime candidate. Don't even get me started on Nikon.
@dobbs well its kind of got some of your influence on it, pairing the dock with the flavors of that wall
Cool man. What you working with these days?
@digit us nice colors there dude. Is that your exherbo rig? I noticed ice weasel which would mean you are into custom exheres these days
Cyanogen mod 10 on my phone.
How is that working out for you? I have been meaning to try it on a Samsung Galaxy S 4G for a while now, but don't want to brick it or end up running firmware that's substandard/unstable.
Its running on a galaxy s3 from sprint. Works flawlessly. Its actually a lot safer than they say because of the recovery mode Samsung has built in. Arch is probably the easiest distro to use for flashing because heimdall and abs is in aur.
