dwmX 2019 base testing concept


#21

Moved dwmX development to Devuan Beowulf [systemd on Buster causing too many issues]

Looking good so far and test ISO created.

This is my old dwmX ISO based on Debian Jessie

Wow! Is that ISO available to test?

** I see the link now, downloading.

@Dobbie03
Not quite yet…thank you for your patience :wink:
I just have to decide the apps to remain in the final build…plus a bit of tweaking…
I hope to have an ISO ‘soonish’ for testing…but it will be ALPHA mode.

PLEASE NOTE THE LINK ABOVE REFERS TO MY OLD dwmX ISO based on Debian Jessie!
Cheers!


#24

Ah I see, no worries. I feel like playing with some dwm this morning so I will have a looksee again at your old ISO.


#25

Interesting, dwm is next in line.


#26

You might find dwm on the next ArchLabs ISO…:slight_smile:


#27

OMG, such cool news like this will be a test to my patience. :smiley:


#28

Yeah and we won’t be releasing anytime soon either. Sorry I shouldn’t have said anything.


#29

No worry, release when ready. :wink: I have other stuff to check out too, and my Linux activity is low anyway atm. :slight_smile:


#30

Really? In addition to or in lieu of openbox?


#31

Might be in addition, it s what I guess.


#32

@Glenn, in addition there my friend. The new release will impress you all.


#33

@Dobbie03 They always do Matt :slight_smile:


#34

How’s that ISO coming along @mrneilypops? Got a taste for us yet?


#35

@Dobbie03 So :sunglasses:

OK…

  1. I have completed a rough draft ‘pre-alpha’ ISO with my basic ideas.
  2. I need to tweak a bit more…sorry for the delay…but I do intend to have something for release before end 2018…
  3. I am busy with family stuff next 2 weeks…so your patience is much appreciated.

Thanks for the interest and motivation. dwmX has always been quite ‘niche’ and I don’t see that changing but I hope to make it a little bit easier for those new to dwm.

It’s all sounding super interesting. I am waiting (im)patiently.


#37

@mrneilypops. Take the time, we all understand that their s something else in life,

Yes Xanmod kernels. Nice scrot by the way ! Keep it on mate.


#38

@altman
Cheers :wink:
I have in the past rushed the process of ISO creation…maybe just because I could…
I am now trying to take my time on ‘distrolette’ creation…


#39

@mrneilypops , that s cool on my end, anyways , it s not like you had a forum or else kind of waiting on you for the release !
