No more "Iced Latte?"
Don't be sad Neal, "Iced Latte" is a state of mind ....
I am trying to get round to packaging, but the time Latte takes to get ready (with its multiple wm's) can be frustrating when certain libs get updated.
As a result I have been lookinmg into a way that a low-ram iso can be used more effcetivly (I will keep my.dofiles in /etc/skel on the iso , so that latte is never too far away - I may once I get teh basics "down" build a 'task-iced latte' for RAW
RAW is a step in the right direction I think as it keeps things light, but unencumbered by my own desires of what a light iso means
RAW will (hopefully) be the ideal solution for anyone wanting a base to build from that does not want to have pre-conceived ideas of what should be or shoudl not be included in a light iso.
As it is atm RAW will take you to a (deliberatley) theme-less minimalistic window manager (icewm-light) on right clicking on the desktop it has only the standard configuration menu (configure my computer , the install function, user admin etc ), a file manager (mc) bleachbit, and synaptic , thats pretty much it.
The aim here is to install the iso (which is gzip'd not xz to help with lower ram installs) then add what you want, without any influence from me.
In fact originally I was not going to include a file manager, although found that I needed one during the creation of the iso so mc stayed as its a good toolkit (editor, filemanagement,ftp,ssh etc etc ).
It may also be a good test bed for new rpms - to ensure all necessary dependencies are mentioned.
In all its pretty RAW..
