 Great distro -- a few personal tweaks

I think you folks are doing an oustanding job with this distro, and I hope the work continues. Overall, your choices for applications are excellent and I like the good amount of development and server tools. Too many distros these days focus strictly on the desktop. Of course, you've done a good job there as well. I like the fact that most packages seem to be pretty much "as is" with out much source or configure tweaking. I currently am a CRUX user and was just trying out Paldo because the philosophy behind it intrigued me. I've been using it for a few days now, and I think it's here to stay. Having come from CRUX, I had no problems with the install (once I figured out the keyboard layout ).

At this point my only suggestions are purely personal preferences.

1. I would like upkg to be more verbose. Before installing I missed the --stdout option, and so couldn't tell if anything was happening or not. I like to know what's going on.

2. Galeon instead of Epiphany. A personal preference, of course.

3. I much prefer totem-xine over totem-gstreamer. Many less packages to maintain and I've always had better luck with the xine engine as compared to gstreamer, especially as a browser plugin.

That's all I've noticed to this point. I'm still getting accustomed to upkg. Once I get the hang of it, I may try to add my own packages (such as bzflag ).

Thanks for your efforts,
Daniel

Hi

Nice to see the paldo comunity growing.

Upkg is at its current stage not a very nice tool. It does what it has to and not much more... Most Errors are reported via Exceptions . Since it works we don't have the motivation to make it nicer... i know we're lazy .

We use Epiphany because its basically GNOME's choice. If you like Galeon, create a upkg package for it (gnome apps are absolute trivial to create just take one and change its name). We would add that to the repository of course.

We used totem-xine for a while but since totem sees its future in gstreamer there is no point using xine anymore. The whole mediaplayer stuff is a real mess. You'll see that there are really many mediaplayers included. We hope that with gstreamer getting better and better that these are made redundand.

Have Fun.
