Re: The Beginning.

It's quite easy to build the distro, and several people have already done it. (Have a look round these forums.) The necessary information is all in the packages in the #! repository.

What's much harder is to build the customized debian installer to put on the .iso file, especially if a live session is to be included too.

Re: The Beginning.

Yes please! If #! goes away I'll have to go back to distro hopping. (Not that their is anything wrong with that!)
I am willing to help in any way I can.

Re: The Beginning.

I would like to help this #! community. I have given comments in praise of Corenominal's work. But now, it is all of the forum members contributions and freely shared ideas that will ensure future success or failure. During the last year, the systemd debate gave me a serious roadblock to reconcile, especially where did Crunchbang fit on the Free Open Source Software continuum...between the cathedral ...and the bazaar.

My old refurbished system is running Waldorf 11 on remastered .iso disk which ..damo..gave as a HOW TO a few months ago.
The /etc/apt/sources.list has Crunchbang sources commented out; also, tint2 and tint2conf were purged. So this is Vanilla Debian.

The rest (especially the future) #! or whatever it is called - (BTW do we need to bring in paralegals or attorneys?) depends on
what we members of this linux community decide to do...but...be excellent to each other...have a lot of fun....!!!

Re: The Beginning.

I would like to thank the forum, it contributors, and it's users, as well as Philip who gave really everybody a special gift. #! is what every Debian distro tries to be on the level of having an awesome forum, plus the inner mechanism of a solid well built distro. I am a user who run 8 separate Sid distro's on a large modern dust box. I like openbox, fluxbox, toy with blackbox and a few tiling window managers. I don't do Ubuntu, at all. So, yea the idea of some kind of resurrection of #!, either by asking corenominal for the keys, or a DE that can be added to Debian Testing. Anyway, count me in, nothing much on package building or writing script, but could help in other ways, I hope. It's appearance could be modernized a bit while holding on to #!'s character and mystique. I would think the welcome screen and package offer would be great, a default conky for both the keyboard shortcuts, and some pertinent data of the system. Perhaps bring in more of a metallic look versus the flat. Really, so much could be done. I do have a question for anyone who might be able to answer it? Has #! always had a transparent menu, or is it something that happened once I went to Sid? I have openbox Sid on Debian Testing 7.8, and can't seem to get the affect at all. Just curious if this was something under the hood of #!. Thanks for so many having the same sentiment as I do. -zephyr

Re: The Beginning.

I'd like to contribute in anyway I can. Shoot me a PM or whatevs and let me know what I can do to contribute.

I've already created 2 sub-threads in this forum along those lines and if I was dev I feel I could add more. That being said, I code for fun, and only when the mood hits - so that's right out. To actually commit to coding, ugh. Takes the fun right out.

That all being said, I've reached the point in my life where my kids are getting older, my career is finally paying off and I want to give back to the community (Linux/FOSS) that has given me so much.

So whatever I can do (within limits) I will try my best to do.
