Re: GUI Interactive Shell

Thanks for the info Ben. So I guess i'll have to wait for Squeeze to be released in order to make things simpler.

Another way I was thinking about was to use vim only without any GUI since the nxjc and java installers need to GUI to install and work, so that can be done using the Live interactive shell. However in order to add the code completion in vim for java, I would need to install eclim and a prerequisite of eclim is to have eclipse installed. So I am again stuck here....

Unless there is another simpler way for code completion in vim as re: Java.

I already configured vjde on my system (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1213) to give it a try. Code completion works but for some reason it does not list all the classes correctly. Example in java.util there should be the Date class which was not listed, together with many others classes.

If I find a way to solve tab completion in vim, I would go about it using vim and hence build a text based distro. Personally i hate GUIs and if I can do it using console it will be great.

How can I install Eclipse from Debian Live interactive shell? The installer is GUI based as far as I am concerned, so I would need to install it once I boot the live system. In that case, I would need to take a tar ball before and after of the WHOLE SYSTEM right? This is not that feasible as far as I am seeing it...

Your opinion about that?

The gold standard, of course, is to provide Debian packages of all software to include.  I understand if you find that a bit daunting for Eclipse ...

But before we go down that road, you may or may not be aware that Eclipse is in Debian Squeeze?


Even though Squeeze has not yet released, it is now in freeze (the phase of the release process in which we stop adding features and work out the remaining RC bugs in preparation for release) which should provide a reasonably stable platform for developing a live image based on it.  This may be your best alternative.
