OPENBOX: BORK! Release Notes

Unread post by machinebacon » Tue Feb 03, 2015 3:26 pm

This is the Openbox base that replaces "Popcorn" and entertains people like Vic, S11 and the like ;)

BORK! The name says it all. You are not afraid of sid/experimental? GTK3 is on your blacklist? You don't need no systemd? Your computer is from the last decade, has a RAM size of three digits and a CPU that powers a solar calculator? You give a flying fuck about GPT and UEFI, just want to give your smelly Pentium a new home? You promise not to use btrfs and lvm? To update, upgrade and install packages you use the excellent 'apt' command? You believe in beards, sandals, marijuana and/or clicky keyboards? You like process trees that don't need a scroll wheel to display all their beauty? You know that 'sudo bbqinstall' or 'sudo bbqinstaller' will put the live system onto a prepared partition? You remember that the passwords for the live session are 'bbq' and 'root'? You have heard of the mighty 'adduser' wrapper? You absolutely want to change to root password after installation because 'root' is simply not safe enough?

GOOD! Click me. And you get this:

BORK, my comfort cloth. But it BORKs serious butt though. Only VBx so far, bare metal will follow. You saved my butt with some BORK, but that is OK. Thanks again baconman. :)

This is really fucking nice actually - just installed this morning, install went boringly well.
nearly made me want to keep openbox on it, perfect menu and even once I ditched the 'box and bloated it with i3, the work underneath is beautiful.
and there is a committee somewhere working out some name to the successor to a dead distro.
Just install this and STFU.

well, I mean really... someone had to say it.
I don't normally openbox anymore, I just thought as I was checking it out, hey this has everything, loads like lightening and even once I go into the guts it was well set out and simple to get going.
"Sane defaults" is the phrase I think.

If people don't add too much GUI stuff on top, this release will survive a few years.

Yes, it looks like it will be a keeper for sure! I have been loving it so far, especially since the guys helped me figure out how to set .Xresources fonts myself :D I have been playing around with dunst, too, which is actually a nice piece of bloat to have. All in all, nagyon finom volt minden!
