Well, thats one way to look at it, but there are others.Sticking with Slackware, you probably won't have a new release of Porteus until after Slackware releases it's upgrade...theres nothing new to make a new Slackware Porteus release worthwhile right now. And thats after a huge amount of work to recompile everything in Porteus....the porteus.org site will need work to rip out most of what's there now.Jack wrote:This sound like a lot of work to me but you spend a lot of work on Arch. If you stay with Slackware it might be done by now and you know it works. My 0.02cents.brokenman wrote:If we move to arch the build.porteus.org site will need a rebuild.
And the new Slackware Porteus will probably be a shadow of the old one, simply because it's too much for one person to maintain all the different desktops. Now, I know you're waiting on a 32bit version of Nemesis to try out, and it'll probably be along soon...I'm in the same boat Jack, when Nemesis started I wanted to try it so bad I could almost taste it. But, like you, I can't run a 64bit, gotta be 32....so I did what any red blooded Linux slut would do and built my own. It isn't that hard to do, just roll up your sleeves and jump in. The worst you can do is screw up, so what.
Personally, if Nemesis doesn't work out, I can see Porteus fading from the scene altogether, then what?...back to Ubuntu?...the community support right now is just bullshit.
