BLAG must be a ONE CD DISTRO with :
- Abiword, gnumeric and DIA GIMP
- XFCE4.4 to remplace GNOME

KDE and OOffice, go away !
THANK'S TO BLAG's TEAM

Abiword, Gnumeric and GIMP have always been there. XFce is in the current release alongside GNOME and may be cut from the next release in favour of the option of having other lightweight WM's like fluxbox/blackbox. KDE and OpenOffice have never been on the CD.

Thanks,
Stephen Clement

For 50K we need all the wi-fi tools and drivers if not on the cd then in the repo and for me Enlightenment and Software suspend would be cool.

Pacing the floor waiting for Blag 50K, I intend to kill my 2 1/2 year T23 and do a fresh install instead of up-grade so need everything working to perfection after the first three months, then start having fun using it for the next few years......thanks to Jebba, Stevo32, TSS_Killer and the rest of the crew.
Keep up the good work guys :D

Flux/blackbox - Definitely! I love that line of WM's.

We have had blackbox in there since 8000k (RH8) or so. Fluxbox has had much more recent development, though Blackbox has had a recent update.

Folks want blackbox or fluxbox? We probably won't do both (though they will be in the repo).

The beauty is even if neither were included how easy is it to just click install and let it do it all by itself. I love the repositories.

Oh, i'm not sure where you read that...

We have rolled a couple ISOs, but they haven't been installable yet. Gotta figure out why... ;)

Hi Jebba !

Somewhere in this forum i read about Alpha-Releases on top of Fedoras Test-Releases ... but, does not matter ...

The 50k Repository is online, may i update via apt to get the fresh packages or do you think that that would be a band idea and things could get broken ?

I have seen some parts of Gnome 2.13.4 in 50k's errata, will it be2.14 be in 50k ? Because i have not seen 2.13.4 in the original Fedora-Repo's.

A lot of questions, bad english ... sorry ;)

Yes, you can apt-get using the 50k repo, but it's definitely TESTING and can break your system at any time (same is true of Fedora's repo--at this point ours is pretty much just a clone of that).

FC5 "should" be based on Gnome 2.14, but since they are both scheduled to be released on the same day, i'm not sure how they'll wing that.

I see so many people who want this or that on the install cd, and I know space is limited. I personally don't have a dvd burner, so the dvd is not all that useful for me. According to this <a href="http://www.madpenguin.org/cms/?m=show&id=5971"> review </a>, FC5 can be installed by through a network boot ISO. This way the persona installing programs can pick and choose which ones they want. This may be the best way to go for all those Blag users who want more funtionality. Has Blag made any formal announcements concerning this cd? Thanks for your time.

Well, it'll all be on one CD and a DVD will be available as well.

After you install the CD, if you want more software you can always download it from the repository.

It is also possible to install blag via the network. I do this often.
