Original post :
Hi ! So in a few days, i will release a new up-to-date Linux OS for Open Pandora, based on Slackware. (btw, ED plz, remember me... i'm on my own to debug for now :/) It will include a lot of goodies, but maybe there's obvious things i missed. So here's my questions : do you need something special ? Something useful that every distro should ship, or something that will serve well the OP community. I already compiled many packages from here [url="http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.37/"]http://slackbuilds.o...pository/13.37/[/url] but i may add a few. Also, my rootfs archive is around 1G and my current build is > 4G on a SD. I've not decided yet if i will slim down under 4G, or bloat ? My current limit is 8G, but if most of you use 4G cards, i may reconsider. Also, do you want fixed IP adress on all interfaces + ssh activated by default ? I will probably create a default user (op/op), but do you prefer no user at all, and create yours ? Tell me.
