Smarter dpkg/apt rather than new distro ?
Been reading through the goals of emdebian, and the
thought popped up that rather than create a whole new
distro, make a smarter dpkg/apt which would strip the
unwanted parts out of a *.deb, or divert them to the
compact flash storage for use when needed.
At intimate.handhelds.org, many,many packages from
debian-arm can be used. Version 1.0.1 of opie is in
debian unstable. Why not use what's there, but make
the installer more intelligent - remove unwanted
documentation/packaging info so it is conformant to
Just a thought, that might allow use of current debian
packages until a couple more years where handheld
storage is cheap enough that no one would think to not
use straight debian arm.
