Before I start I know how some of you love certian things, What I am about to
request has come about after a extensive study and some test programs run by
Proline computers, The test subjects where endusers and they have helped us
decide what a basic first timer and enduser needs from and operating system.
Hence my new project.
The new project is ProlineX SFU
The goal is to trim Fedora Core 2 into a one CD distro.
The Idea is to provide a Stable Fast and Userfriendly disc.
When I discussed userfriendly with the endusers, what most of us discuss here
came out, I said all you need to do is .... its easy.
They said thats not user friendly. (Flame-WAR)
So I have a plan to create a shrinked version of FC2, and include the packages
where the user, " just needs to... it easy "
When I finish this project I will host the disc in South Africa somewhere for
all to try.
The basic idea is this:
Boot graphically in under a minute to kde (bigest challenge I think)
Internet tools will be a dailer, kmail and konqueror and a few other for blue
tooth , wireless etc..
The usual preferences menu (less what ever gets dropped as a result of deps)
XMMS with mp3, wma,etc... support
Have support for graphically buning CD/DVDs, with support for creating Audio
discs from mp3s. (K3b)
Play movies and DVDs
System tools i.e networking kwikdisc etc
Apt-get and Synaptic built in (default set to freshrpm repo's)
How do I expect this to work? Not sure but this in Linux and it is do able.
I would really appreciate some support on this.
The first request is to find out just for a base system no gui keeping it LSB
compliant what pakages from the cds do I need to get a bootable base system
