Just a reminder we are still woring on getting a logo
Let's get an Official lo/g/OS "To-Do" Thread. Might gain a little momentum?
Fixed logo's gap and added transparency.
Okay gonna do sketch mode here. This is the mockup logo, colors and lines not final. It has a simple fibo split on the boxes. Don't know how to make it look spiffy.
base distro : gentoo
init manager :
Pkg management : portage?
Login manager :
It really isn't that hard to do your own little spin man. Downloading base gentoo images as we speak.
I propose we use bpswm and bmpanel2 as the panel. dmenu launcher. whatever term. All custom of course.
A reminder that while /g/ is fart-arsing around picking a logo, /tg/ came up with an idea for a game, got artwork done, and a lone coder is underway pushing constant updates for it (or was, when I last checked it).
/tg/ gets shit done. Why can't /g/?
Base distro: LFS or gentoo
Init manager: systemd
pkg management: pacman
login manager: console
WM: Loliwm or a tiling weston plugin, fuck X.
Utils: a settings daemon like gnome-settings
This is what I recommend and I will explain why after.
base distro: funtoo
init manager: systemd
pkg management: portage
login manager: slim
Utils: lxappearance for gtk, qt tools (gtksyle USE flag for gtk themes in qt), dmenu and at least firefox
Why Funtoo for the base operating system? This is simply for the one and only fact that it's base portage cache is from git and takes MUCH less time than rsync. Hell even you could make a mirror of their git and just patch things yourself for the distro.
For the kernel, Funtoo has (by default) more kernel sources available to your. You could just compile a kernel using 'debian-sources' and the result is a kernel which will work on most hardware. Packaging that wouldn't be too hard with a basic script. Create your own ebuild to install the precompiled kernel and you're good to go for the hardest part of a gentoo based installation.
Now the reason for why I really suggest portage is because you can create a build server and distribute binaries with it. This will make installation much easier for your average /g/noob. That way your live .iso would be pretty much mean just installing the base gentoo tarball and then you just need to point the /etc/portage/make.conf to the right place for installation. This way you have a pretty quick installation.
The i3 idea is for it's simplicity of use and it's ability to run in both tiled and floating mode. That should please most people. Couple this together with dmenu and you won't be disappointed.
Slim as the DM is pretty light weight but realistically, you really don't need a DM. This is just further ricing potential.
Now for the utils, lxappearance does the job pretty well when setting most things up (GUI wise) on the system. You can make your qt theme match your gtk theme pretty easily too if you compile the right USE flag into the package dev-qt/qtgui.
Not the guy you linked too, instead the guy who wrote up the idea about using Funtoo.
Comparing Pentoo to Gentoo is like comparing Ubuntu to Kali.
It's the same thing with some extras you can install. Also with Pentoo you can just install the overlay and install whatever you want from it on a base Gentoo (even Funtoo) system.
Funtoo has some more innovative ideas compared to Gentoo too. They for starters have more choice for portage profiles, a better version of portage (it's not stuck in the past) and they have more ebuilds for things like kernels.
It's not a bad idea. Running a system which can be built by the said anon will give them more control over decisions as how they want to build the OS. The installation between a Gentoo distro and a Slackware distro is close enough that most Linux noobs will crap themselves just seeing the command line. You may as well start off with a Gentoo/Funtoo system.
Let's settle on alogo first. I made a rough draft
I like the idea of using Slackware as a base because, for me, Slack is the most "vanilla" Linux distro out there, save for LFS. Funtoo looks interesting though. And having a distro already integrated with the package management most people here seem to want is a better idea than a retrofitted software that, last time I used it, kept bugging out.
The guy who did this should remake it without the dick imagery. It has a 60's feel to it. The actual distro itself should be full of hippie imagery and the system theme should look like Xerox's first GUI.
I love /g/ and /mlp/.
It will never stop amusing me that the pathetic weebs here can't do anything and the horsefuckers have more than their fair share of successful programming projects, not to mention all of the art and greentext, which I help add to.
Pathetic. Ponies > Slant eyes
/g/ is too funny. i've seen so many OS projects identical to this one come and go. those that even make it to the choosing-default-packages phase, rarely suggest anything beyond a DE, browser and rice. it reveals what virtually all of /g/'s linux user base uses linux for: rice and unwarranted self importance. linux is useful for people who actually take advantage of its many (usually developer-oriented) features, but since /g/ can't program or really do anything meaningful with computers, we get boring, pointless distros like OP's that don't actually have anything interesting to offer.
Rarity is best pony.
See you in three days mang. You fought well.
Do you come by often? Ponies are one of the only things that gets deleted consistently here.
People get banned when posting their battlestation with a pony mousepad.
slpm itself is great, I used it for a while on Dragora
the repo is small and dated though
it's very fast/easy to update and add packages though, even /g/ could make its own slpm repo on par with small independent distros
took me about an hour to learn how to use it, update all the suckless and gnu packages, and add a couple new packages
unfortunately I don't have my changes any more
more like lagos am I right?
Let's just hope that at least /g/ manages to finish a logo together.
You guys really shouldn't collaborate on anything. Seriously. Just stop it. You've failed at trivial things and you think that an OS will work out for you?
I don't wanna be a dick, but the "programmers" on /g/ aren't really people you want to associate with and especially not ones you want to do a project like this with.
But whatever, ignore me. See you in a few months when everything blows up and crashes miserably.
/g/ could make a fancy fizzbuzz executable with a fancy logo
Another good point to see that /g/ is just a bunch of useless basement dwellers. People who actually have a clue about programming an OS wouldn't give a shit about the logo and would ju8st start programming. But on /g/ nobody can actually program, so you waste time on finding a stupid logo, pretending to be productive. Pathetic.
Add some kind of effect to the "OS", a gradient or something. The solid green in the letters looks strange to me compared to the yellow-green gradient in the arrow.
I very much like it otherwise.
logo needs to adhere to /g/.
therefore it needs to have connections to this elements:
must be written entirely in machine code(or assembler for pussy-mode, or c for retard-mode).
yes, logo needs to be programmed, we aren't designer/marketing shitheads.
you need a catch phrase.
just living in the database.
just a few more logos and we're almost at step 1
Outsider here, what the fuck is this /g/? are you guys doing an OS?
3 weeks ago, a guy launched the idea of doing a distro.
The thread went into a logo thread, and they named the distro "logos".
some guy didn't liked it so they forked the project, and renamed it ricebowl with a different logo.
and a third fork was done.
the next day we could see only logos and ricebowl
then nothing for a week.
Ricebowl seems to be over.
A guy claimed that logos managed to have 20 guys working on it on irc. They used google drive to make a list of all the features of logos (which based distro, systemd or not, what de, software...)
and now, you can see some logos threads, but no real news about the project.
not part of this shit. If I want something done I would just go reading lfs and not rely on /g/ that can't really start a project (doing a logo isn't starting it)
good question, I would like to know what they managed to do
>Finding a LOGO for LOGOS
What about a better name for the OS to begin with?
Not GENOM either.
Neither something that ends in [ou] like Nidjerou
i just came from the /gd/ thread
may the lord be with you all
yeah probs. here's it sans the greek christian joke. minimalist circle shit's probably out of your taste but that's all i got. best of luck
