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