Guys, sorry for the late reply. I've read all this thread and here is
a little kind of summary to clear my (your) mind(s):
- both Sergio and Andreas stated pretty well what is the goal:
maybe it could be useful to integrate them and add details
- Pete has already written some scripts, which could possibly be used
as a starting point:
- We all would like to work on the issue, either from scratch or
starting from knoppix, but we have no time ;-)
IMHO we should try not to waste what has already be done.
I do not know anything about Morphix, but Knoppix seems to work fine
to me, and my only complain is that working on it is a little bit
messy. I think that if we could benefit from the help of Klaus it
should not be to hard to "extract" all the knoppix specific code and
package it somehow, letting people to use the bottom-up approach.
After that, if the knoppix team itself could develop any further
improvement directly on these packages and not on they're specific
framework (I guess they are simply updating and hacking a chroot,
releasing it regularly), then it would be perfect.
As I mentioned a while ago, I'm planning to go to the Karlsruhe on
April 29 for the Linux Audio Meeting, and I maybe I could meet Klaus
personally in that occasion. If we try to further clear the details of
what we want to obtain and write down a sort of specification
document, then I think I can talk to him and see what they can do for
us and what we can do for them.
After that the idea is to create a development framework where
everyone of us can contribute with little efforts, without spending to
These are just thoughts and I don't really know if it is feasible plan
or not. What do you all think?
