On this thread we want to make some suggestions for GNU/BLAG Linux 40000. Blag 40k is coming soon and now it's time to make suggestions and requests for packages that you want to see on the cd. Remember that BLAG fits over 600 packages onto one cd. Some packages may be left out simply to keep the "one cd philosophy".

/me wants to see....
- at least one system monitor (for example gkrellm or conky (now that torsmo is no longer supported))
-wireless drivers, maybe hostap for example
- at least one app to read pdf files ( xpdf or gpdf)

Hey, how about BZFlag. Everytime I see BLAG, I think BZFLAG.

ALso, how about k3b or even better gnometoaster.

Don't have to take my suggestions, they aren't life and death. At least put it in the repositories. :lol:

gnome toaster will not work on the newer kernels. I am talking about fedora 2,3,4

People seem to be wanting this more than blackbox now. Blackbox has had some recent development, IIRC. If we put fluxbox in, we drop blackbox (but it can stay in the repository).

/me doesn't know this one.

naim


Why this over gaim?

BitchX


IRC, right? What does this do over xchat? I'd like to include irssi, but a 2 meg text client seems a bit heavy.

surfbass wrote:
rxvt
aterm
eterm


Why all these terminals? Probably not on CD as xterm is very much like rxvt and gnome-terminal does some of the aterm/eterm goo.

Limewire


Isn't this java or non-free or something?

Thanks for the suggestions. :) Links would be helpful.

hey, just for fun

u know, kde is beautiful; but Enlightenment 0.17 can be more beautiful than kde.^_^ have u think about changing kde to E17?

the mp3 player should tend to "amarok", it has release it's 1.3--actually i like it very much

And i have a question about "udev", in my own distribution, i have try udev-063(058), but it seems that: it will create some conflicts between drivers,such as "ipw2100" and sound drivers; i hear about that Mandriva use the "udev065" to solute this. Do u have some solutions or advice about this question?

I like Fluxbox more than BlackBox just because it has transparency really. Otherwise theyre the same.
(fluxbox.org)

Naim would be a nice app because its just a shell version of aim (I like to work w/o X sometimes) it might be a little heavy though.
(naim.n.ml.org)
NOTE: they seem to be hacked, nobody has permission to the ftp server =/

BitchX: pretty heavy at 2.24 MB, but any text-based irc client is nice.
(bitchx.org)

as for all the shells, I was thinking you pick one (rxvt is lightest i believe) just so people running low on resources can launch a shell that doesnt take up 20% of your RAM (ie gnome-termainal)
(rxvt.org)
(afterstep.org/aterm.php)
(eterm.org)

And I just said Limewire because I didnt realize at the time that you already had a client on the gnutella network. I also realize that this distro is for the desktop user, but the text-clients are nice. Maybe you want to make an extras CD? Something you can pop in post-install.

Create a playlist of your mp3 folder or folders using

Code:
ls *.mp3 /home/user/mp3 > playlist.txt


to be really simple if you got them all in one folder or

Code:
find /home/username -name "*.mp3" -print > playlist.txt


if you got them all neatly laid out in folders.

Code:
mplayer -shuffle -playlist playlist.txt


does anything else your standard mp3 player will do which is basically play your entire collection of mp3's in random order.

Check http://tivo-mplayer.sourceforge.net/doc ... r-man.html for anything else you may find useful on mplayer.

Understatement of the year :)

Forget having to have Quicktime, RealPlayer and Windows Media Player. mplayer plays all formats of video/audio I have ever come across bypassing them stupid license restrictions only WMP finds.
