Linux Project - Ideas needed!

Post by PQBC starting a project » Tue Dec 06, 2005 3:28 pm

Save your flaming for the LINUX REVOLUTION post, please :lol:

Anyways, I was planning on designing my own variation of DEBIAN LINUX, but can't decide on all of the programs that it should include. Ideas?
I have so far...
-----FILE LIST-----
Debian Base
Linux core
KDE base packages
amaroK (Music Manager)
RealPlayer (Music Manager)
Firefox - best internet browser available
Thunderbird ? email client
OpenOffice.org (free office suite)
The GIMP (Linux equivalent to Paintshop Pro)
WINE ? Windows Emulator
Basilisk II ? MAC Emulator
GAIM (Instant messenger - works with most major IM clients ex. AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, etc.)
DOSbox - DOS emulator
Nvu - Web Designing
Games- Ace Of Penquins (solitare)
Battle For Wesnoth (http://www.wesnoth.org)
3D chess
SuperTUX (Super Mario clone featuring TUX <see avatar>
Blast (Think of StressRelief)
BomberClone (BomberMan Clone)
Frozen Bubble (Think of Bust A Move!)
-----EOFL-----

Ideas? :P (I would like to keep it legal - not distributing it with QB 2+)

I think you're going way over your head with a Linux project...
I think you should start with a simple linear ASM task launcher, and then work your way up the totem pole....

I wouldn't use KDE. Personally I would just use XFCE.

Programs that ran almost decently in linux when installed on My PC:
Glade, helix, FreePascal and its IDE...

Linux needs a workstation that runs very fast and efficiantly on all PCs... some small one that performs better than it looks, like some sort of TOS...

QBinux is a Linux distribution with the aim of integrating the work of the vast community of free software developers at Pete's QBASIC Site in order to create a modern, performant, safe and easy to use system for system administrators and desktop users.

A live-cd? I could probably do that... Gimme a link to a tutorial and I'll try it. But, it would probably have to be a DVD, since the file size already is well over 700mb.

OK, new idea. I am going to use SLACKWARE (install) and SLAX (live cd) for my linux system. I might make changes later.

Comments, but no flaming, please. :roll:

Idea: stop ripping off existing linux distros and write one of your own based on the core linux kernel.

After a huge problem with my transfer drive, I have reattempted to rebuild my LiveCD.

So far I have...
KDE - Fluxbox - XFCE
FreeBASIC 0.15B
DOSBOX
QBASIC 1.1
FireFox 1.5
KDevelop (C++ environments, mostly.)
SuperTUX
Wireless Wrapper and assistant (for nathan :P )
----
plus random things to help FreeBASIC work correctly.
Adding more relatively quickly.
