Posted in Linux, Linux - Update on January 18, 2009 by panarchy


First update in almost a month!

Well I’ve been hard at work on my distribution for the last few days, mainly with planning. Today I started with a fresh copy and have started removing packages.

I read about each and every package before deciding whether or not to remove it. I’m basically removing everything not specifically needed… except the themes.

Should be able to release my distribution by the 30th.

Keep you posted!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Created this (perhaps temporarily) for my linux distribution.

Version 0.9:  Security-orientated Linux distribution built on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10).


Next release will;

  • Be a DVD
  • Have all programs run as root (eg Applications -> gksudo wireshark)
  • Contain more programs (especially ones that don’t have a .deb)
  • Have my custom wallpaper
  • Contain rainbow tables
  • Have firefox addons built in (for Live Session User)
  • By default, will boot into VESA
  • By default, will use generic drivers
  • Have an edited GNOME source code, which will allow for another menu on the top menubar (next to Applications|Places|System)
  • HAVE A NAME!!!
  • Be Version 1.0!!!

So I hope you will find the current version helpful, and will look forward to my next release!

I have some committments, so I will be out of action for the next week, then I’ll begin work on the DVD version.

If you find any bugs, or have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate in commenting to this post.



UPDATE: Note that not all of these features will appear in Version 1 of my distribution, as it ended up taking a lot longer then I though. Expect most of the features in version 1, but some you’ll have to wait for. Sorry!
