livarp, debian with six window managers

It is not often that I am in awe  for a new distro, but livarp 0.3 managed to do it.
It is the dream distro for DE/WM hoppers: http://arpinux.org/arpwiki/doku.php/start:livarp_03_gb
Everything looks beautiful, even the distros forum: http://arpinux.org/forum/index.php

99% free (conky & flashplugin for the last 1%)
    light & stable: livarp is based on Debian Squeeze, one of the most stable ditro atm.
    anynoob-inside livarp is made for every user that can read and want to discover alternatives window-managers.
    6 sessions available from live to install: dwm, echinuswm, evilwm, pekwm, wmfs et wmaker.
    livarp est grey
    composite management with xcompmgr.
    no graphical session-manager: your session is launched by startx, then a clean zenity dialog window appears to let you choose your session.
    a unified menu for every session handled by compiz-deskmenu.

applications

    terminal: urxvtc/d - roxterm
    file-manager: rox-filer - ranger
    web-browser: uzbl - firefox
    text-editor: geany - vim
    office: abiword - gnumeric - evince
    graph: gpicview - gimp
    tchat: pidgin
    ftp client: gFtp

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

hi klanger smile
and no, it's not you, i don't have any network-manager in livarp. you have to install it yourself if you need to...
..
the forum is still down ... i think i'm gonna close it.. hmm
i'm really sorry as there is no specific support anymore for livarp.. maybe it was not the right time to get it out big_smile

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

It's still really great work.  I will probably actually install it on a secondary hard drive on my desktop at home to "play" with all those cool WMs.  Love the login/environment choice, too.  Plus, the post install script had me brusing up on the 3 years of French I had in my undergrad days!

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

I wish arpinux all the very best in getting back up to speed.
This has made me very sad and disappointed tonight.

Bon Chance with the rebirth.

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

Sorry to hear about your server. Looking for the rebirth, you've done a great job!

May be not the best moment to ask, but are there any plans for making a 64bits version? or is your intention to keep it 'old hardware' oriented?

Thanks for all your work and keep on.

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

There is a poetic saying in Dutch, which in English would be something like:
everything that is of  real value, is without defence.

That must apply to this situation too.
Hope you will not be too much demoralized.

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

Very nice work, Arp.
I like the idea of a distro employing multiple minimalist window managers by default.

Sorry to hear about your site getting pwned, but it shows you're famous enough for someone to get jealous of.
You have a great name, my friend. You must kill your name before it kills you. tongue

Re: livarp, debian with six window managers

@wlourf: That would be awesome! big_smile

@arpinux: Excellent work! You certainly did a fantastic job on producing such an excellent live cd. What I like most about it is that it is 99% free software. Flash is a necessary evil at the moment, so I don't blame you for including it. The good thing is that it won't be too long before everything moves over to HTML 5 technology. smile

@anyone who wouldn't mind providing an opinion: Do you think that there is an advantage of using a 64-bit OS vs a 32-bit OS with a PAE kernel on a 64-bit system? I've read some mixed opinions about the matter and I was hoping someone could clear this up.
