Re: Please help me to include packages in first cdrom of debian

Hello all,

I've been working with several things and wanted to bring up another advantage that I think a modular distribution (such as morphix) would provide. First, it would fit well for Persaie here. He could just build a quick mini-module, insert into the mini-mod directory, and then burn his own liveCD.

Second, and this has been a big thing for me... preconfigured modules allow just that... they can be preconfigured. For instance, one of the things I provide for our teachers and students is the ability to stream media - specifically classical music. But giving a list of sites doesn't help, as Mozilla doesn't know what to do with a .pls file. My average users shouldn't have to know how to configure it, either. Likewise, there are several settings (such as samba, menu arrangements, etc.) that the standard "apt-get" doesn't address or fix. With a module, however, you can apt-get and configure the program ahead of time.

It still allows the standard base, and would allow specific modules. Say, a science lab might only need the physics-mini-module, the math-mini-module and the biology-mini-module, but not the reading-mini-module. Also, instead of the headache of actually trying to maintain a debian apt-get package for some of the more obscure programs (which is no simple task), you could install make & install in a module environment all the programs you need. So all thos programs listed as needing maintainers on the debian-edu package list could at least easily be used by people in whatever combination they need.
