Fresh install of BREAK! Using it to make a new Openbox RYO. The name is TrollHammer. They get a terminal, bbqpkg and that's it. No dmenu or other bloat. No manuals and docs because that is bloat. Purging mode: ON. The obmenu menu is what's on the scrot. They can edit the bloat menu themselves

^ I would drop volumeicon/tint2 (gtk2-dependencies), replace urxvt with xterm (startup-notification-dependencies) and get dmenu back, add a 1 pixel margin on top or bottom for the right-click menu, and keep the manpages. But that's just me ;)

I wonder why you qualify manpages as bloat, as those are pretty small and compressed anyway.. That unless you build a spin for embedded devices where disk space can be very limited. For example: Pidsley's buildroot-powered Kermacs or Alpine Linux just to name a few. Both shipped with very small number of packages, and most of them are simple (busybox utils) things that everyone should be pretty familiar with.

But probably that's just me.... ;) Still love it when someone come up with something new.

Edit: LOL, i forgot to mention bacon already said the same thing.... Sowwy... :)

It was only meant as a joke. If I was serious, there would be nothing on the screen except the menu and no panel, no terminal, no editor, etc installed. It is called "Trollhammer" for a reason.

Well actually.... keep only dmenu, a very simple term and the tiniest of all WMs that handles keyboard bindings to some extent (cwm) should make 90% of the fast-food Linux users believe that this remaster is a trollhammer ;)

Just in case anyone still thinks a 64-bit system can't start openbox under 25M.

You may notice I added init detection to env-info:

Code: Select all

print-init() {
    init=$(strings /sbin/init | awk 'match($0, /(upstart|systemd|sysvinit|busybox)/) { print substr($0, RSTART, RLENGTH);exit; }')
    color-echo Init $init
}
Taken from https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... -the-shell

This code does not distinguish OpenRC, because OpenRC is technically a service manager working with an init system, usually sysvinit. If you check /sbin/init on an OpenRC system, it is usually sysvinit; Alpine uses OpenRC with busybox init. I will investigate ways to add OpenRC detection to the script.

^ cool! What if you check like

Code: Select all

 [ -e /run/openrc/started ] 
I suppose (not tested with sysvinit) that only OpenRC writes something there, and clears /run after reboot.
