WOW! Writing this from the CROWZ Openbox version! big_smile

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

...and how do you get things like Synaptic to open with pkexec?!?!? Does it have something to do with this...

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

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

...and how do you... tongue

An absolutely great job zephyr. I'm in awe! big_smile

Now to try out your other versions as soon as I have time. smile


I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Veni, vidi, vici vdevuaned. I came, I saw, I Devuaned. wink

Re: CROWZ Devuan 2.0.0 ASCII is now uploaded

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
