Kngs of Leon is a band sort of out of my normal listening, never heard of them until my daughter gave the CD as a gift. Like their sound...a lot!

@ dxrobertson: It is a great album, first saw DP back in early 1970's in Dallas, then in Honolulu around 1975. Always a great show! That time span in betwteen really showed how they had progressed. Thought House of Blue Light was a great album although think Stormbringer was exceptional.

I heard somewhere Elvis stated Roy was the greatest voice he ever heard, I have to agree to some extent.  Also, enjoy the VH JAM!


With you with that, probably read the same article. Van Halen has that guitar riff at the beginning plus a hell of a great remake.  Orbison has such sincere clear vocals.

I think you and I sometimes listen through the same headphones.  I have always enjoyed the softer side of Sabbath found in these tunes.

In a cosmic way of things believe there are many brothers and sisters who appreciate the same sound we do, after all, it's just noise and some of it more pleasant to the ears and senses  than other noise. big_smile

More often than not the really best tunes never hit the airwaves from any performers album, what was chosen by promoters was often what was trendy but never reflected the true potential of a band or their best music.

One of my favs, soft and floats along, with a heavier chorus, is Junior's Eyes

Exactly, another overlooked classic, haven't heard this in a great while, appreciate bringing it forward again! smile

Nick Cave Bad Seeds

New to me, great sound! Thanks!

^ Have always respected intellectual property and especially artistic expression so never just assume.

Thank you immensely, maybe we could discuss a set for all 3 distros at some point with fb and jwm?

A new release of Manjaro with a MiyoLinux wallpaper that still says MiyoLinux on it!

Wouldn't that be a kicker for that to happen! Have seen grub screens reused with other distros name very faintly in the background. roll

Oh dear...before I saw this, I got rid of that wallpaper and replaced it with another one that I made. The new one looks very similar, but I used a different font for CROWZ

Thanks! Very nice you used the font from CROWZ obmenu header! smile

Hmmm...gives me idea for the next release! big_smile

Thanks again, nice work and for a guy like myself that had issues with drawing stick figures really admire you artisticr abilities! : )

@ Nili: STAR and CROWZ both use the JWM setup similar to Manjaro, where the configuration files are in usr/.config/jwm.

Not sure if this was what you were describing as your attempt. smile

Have played around with obmenu-generator in the past, looks great! smile

#21 Re: Devuan Derivatives » CROWZ Devuan 2.0.0 ASCII is now uploaded » 2018-06-28 06:04:34

Thank you for doing a test drive of CROWZ ob.

How do you pack so much stuff into such a small .iso?

Use squashfs for compression during the build to reduce the size, exact percentage not sure perhaps between 12-18%

...and how do you get things like Synaptic to open with pkexec?

Use gksudo to open Synaptic, however pkexec is a graphical frontend of PolicyKit. Use...

/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &

to help facilitate mounting other drives on my machine, primarily with Thunar although it may work with others. Also requires gvfs to work as needed.

..and how do you get a 64bit with the items running at start-up to boot up at +/- 125 MBs of RAM?

This is where Devuan takes all the glory, wasn't that way with Debian. Just a layman's view but think systemd has a lot of bloat and consume resources. Also, an approach in using smaller, simpler applications that just get the job done. 

Most of all is having a mentor like Ozi as a good advisor and keeping FOSS as a compass. smile

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, we all do what we do for our users. Besides, Dan you are the one who has Devuan's only Awesome Wm release! smile

@ dxrobertson: Kris has a unique voice and singing style which I like when first heard him on the radio, enjoyed him as an actor as well.

Really liked FarmAid and what they were trying to achieve, Neil Young also one of my favorites.
