Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

With elementary os the experience is positive for the pasture, however good luck when you have a problem and get into ctrl-d mode. :(

More peculiarly I would be interested in a EOS (unbuntu based) /porteus (kernel) hybrid. Thanks. This threads seems to say that it would be p...

porteus modules behavior: size and speed of decompression

I am aware that there has been some testing on that in the past. Or maybe you have some experience or some way to measure it. Do you have some data on the size of modules and the time needed to decompress at bootup.

I am looking toward the ideal size to speed decompression module.

Thanks.

Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

KDE5 nemesis artix based

I thought that network-manager was already in the base modules! With plasma-nm works fine. Thanks. Autologin works for root mode. I begin to have a satisfactory installation. I might take some time to try to reduce the modules with brokenman building scripts which are a mystery to me. However, my ac...

Autologin works in guest mode. Not tested for root mode. Thanks. I am unable to get the nm-applet in the kde panel. nmapplet with openrc is of no use: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NetworkManager#OpenRC Quicklaunch is no more available in widgets. Maybe, I should report to kde directly. All you have ...

In the most recent version of nemesis, it seems that we have a broken pman: [porteus guest]# pman -S thunar /usr/local/bin/pman: line 116: syntax error near unexpected token `/var/lib/pacman/sync/community.db' /usr/local/bin/pman: line 116: `/var/lib/pacman/sync/community.db \' [porteus guest] Thanks.

openrc the system behind nemesis: printing as an example

reinstalling system-config-printer with the --force option did the job.
