    RE: Need help making a new distro
    I agree somewhat with you. With this, it will always be updated from the Debian repros and any packages made will be .deb. So I am contributing to the whole. What I don't agree with is the too many distros idea. Isn't linux all about freedom and different flavors? If it's not, then we all should just go back to being m$ automatons. Just my 2 cents. Now for my $1.00, I have posted about a couple problems I am having with this. If anyone has any advice that will help me with these, could you PLEASE post them? Thanx

    RE: Need help making a new distro
    Ok, I have a couple screens now: Screens: Desktop w/custom theme [img]http://i43.tinypic.com/xnywas.png[/img] With a few apps loaded [img]http://i40.tinypic.com/2dgw51k.png[/img] [color=maroon]Known bugs: When custom theme is implemented it crashes several of the multi-media apps. Also, when loading it up, it seems to revert back to before the customizations were implemented. Will try and work the bugs out. But I am just 1 person, may take awhile.[/color] By the way, I used AV Linux which is a Debian base and used Tony Brijeski's Remastersys Installer, maybe this is what is causing the bugs? I also just made a blog: [url]http://demonlinux.blogspot.com/[/url]

    RE: Need help making a new distro
    Well, I'm thinkin of goin the Debian route now, so I guess I will be using DEB. That way I can also add in their repos. I have never "rolled my own" distro before. So the easiest way, is the best way for me right now. I was also thinkin on just grabbin Debian and theme it up and add every thing we use to it. But then, it wouldn't really be my own creation, would it? I mean, so many ppl do exactly that, then bundle it, rename it and tag it as their own creation.

    Thanx GoinEasy9, maybe I will try Debian. I was looking at Slackware and it just seems like it might be a pain. @ manfred: What?

    Need help making a new distro
    I know everyone is thinking: "Ugh!!! Not another distro!!! But this is a different case. I am making this for my personal use and for a few friends and family members. I am thinking of basing it off Slackware or Arch, although I am currently using PCLinuxOS and Mint on a couple other pcs. ALL help and advice is helpful. But first I need to figure out WHERE to start. If anyone would like to help with this, please post here with any links or info I will be needing. I am totally lost here.
