We are making progress

Hello - Forum,
Every so often I want to update you guys on our progress.
We actually do have nightly builds running for our private testers....
It has been a very smooth port to devuan as well..... we have both a 64 and 32 bit build

Also python w(tkinter), and  golang worked out of the box no issues...very nice...!

Here is a screen of the 32 bit.

We are finalizing the branding for the installers. Thank you so much for letting us tag your logo in our spin. It will be a water mark for slides during the install (calamares). As soon as I get a final I will post a screen here of the installer.

None the less  just sharing and expressing our many thanks!

Re: We are making progress

That's a good news, I am glad Devuan is supplying to Pepermint. I believe users we'll find something light and practical on that OS.

Wish you guys only achievements of your objectives.

Re: We are making progress

I'm really excited to try this out. Should be a great distro in general and really appeals to me for HTPC use. ICE is really handy for making an app for each streaming service.

Re: We are making progress

Great to see more distros willing to WALK AWAY from

* International Corporations
* Central Banking Cartels
* VC funding
* Anti Nation
* Anti Merit
* Anti Straight Males
* Soyd/Dbus/policykit
* Python + Dotnet + Javascript
* Censorship
* Pandering to International Authoritarianism/weak/emotional

Over to instead
* based distros,
* based communities
* people willing to put  experience, hard work, talent, drive and pride ins ones worth/effort/hard work

Instead of pandering to the
weak, always offended and those which pull down and subvert an community/group instead of aiding success
which are never happy until everyone is purged and they have completely taken over your thing/project/group/etc


I can see Linux spliter into 2 groups

Internationalism
Corporations
Centralisation
Censorship
Closed Source
Subverison
Wayland/pulse/dbus/policykit


and
Indie/Small/crowd/ground funded
Libre
No soyd,dbus, wayland,pulseaudio
Free Speech
Based Communties
hard work
Small business

Actually, the last time I tried to install the latest PeppermintOS, it didn't work installing to an encrypted LUKS volume. That'll need to work, too. big_smile

Re: We are making progress

Hello all....I wanted to swing by here, again to say a big thank you to  the Devuan team and the great community you have here. Those of you who gave feedback for the testing of the 32bit we cannot say thank you enough, The 64bit has been working well, most of the feedback we got  from the 32bit we applied to the 64bit they are so similar, we have not seen any eye popping issues in our testing... .

Thank you for letting us water mark your logo just a bit, with ours here at PeppermintOS.
I also wanted to let you know in the course of the next 2 weeks we will be dropping the Production release 32 and 64 bit of PeppermintOS(Devuan) we will definitely be throwing  much love your way as we start ramping up the release.   

Again thank you for your kindness and support

This is going to be very cool!! Linux-land is dominated by conservative old distros that work overtime to maintain the status quo. Very exciting to see PeppermintOS willing to shake things up a bit.
