I've decided that I'm a floating WM guy, and Fluxbox was easy to set up, so after some pimping, here's what I got. Wheezy netinstall.

Tin-black style, DejaVu font. I grayscaled a wallpaper I found, set up some desktops, and I'm off to the races.

^ Thanks. I'm digging the monochrome look. Waaay less distracting.

I kinda built a noob-killah type thing with flux instead of openbox. I looked at openbox, saw the XML configs and ran for my life.

^ hahaha, Openbox is not difficult. but, if you use Openbox you are a pussy (like me), so in that sense, you did right :D

^ LOL Yeah, I did just replace the Flux menu with dmenu to restore some sense of BBq-cred. Can't have the pussy-factor rising too high, after all.

as long as you accept your pussyness and not be ashamed of it, it is fine. the only problems arise when somebody starts to apologize for who they are :)

Well, I killed my Arch installation on the T61, so I'm doing a bit of bare metal distro-hopping before going back to Slackware. Here we have Draco, which was originally based on Slackware, and uses NetBSD pkgsrc for package management. This is 1.0.1 preview, from 5/9/2014, and check out that kernel version! We don't need no stinkin' 3.xx kernel! Looks like I need to modify env-info to properly display OS...

Code: Select all

bbq@grill:~$ cat /etc/os-release 
PRETTY_NAME="Draco"
NAME="Draco"
ID=slackware
ANSI_COLOR="1;31"
HOME_URL="http://www.linuxbbq.org/"
SUPPORT_URL="http://www.linuxbbq.org/bbs/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="http://bugs.debian.org/"
for example, it will be found by env-info then :)

^^ Cool, thanks bacon! The OS info is actually in /etc/system-release, rather than os-release, so it's pretty simple, either way.

Ah of course, it is based on slackware, indeed. Should have remembered it :)

^ Actually, it's os-release in Slackware, as well, no modification necessary to env-info. The only mod that was needed originally for Slackware was here:
