Post to celebrate the official release of SharpBang GNU/Linux, a live ISO image that can be used to install a pre-configured Openbox/Tint2 desktop running on Debian stable:

Only Debian stable repositories are used with a single custom .deb package supplying the desktop configuration.

Downloaded this morning and took a look running in "live mode". Very nice!- very quick to boot from USB drive; nice look and feel; good selection of useful tools. I will likely turn to this for system analysis/recovery of unbootable systems ahead of Grml from now on. Great work...

Thanks None1975 & tynman. The network manager was stolen from grml's live image and it has most of their recovery tools but with the added convenience of passwordless mounting for internal drives in the file manager.

The installer works as well and should support Secure Boot.

Yeah but the UI is beautifully minimal and it's quicker on my hardware than dwm 'cos it uses the GPU to move stuff around the desktop :)

Minimal Fvwm configuration for Debian Buster system. With only 866 pkg you can have a fully working system without bloating stuff. FVWM config is shamelessly stolen from Donald Ervin Knuth and adapted for modern FVWM. It have 4 virtual desktops, buttons to switch virtual desktops with icons (in folder "icons"), asclock, for clock and xload (as system load viewer). This is nicely integated with FVWMButtons module.

Finally got SPICE working from the command line (no virt-manager or gnome-boxes to hold my hand):

The clipboard is automatically shared between guest & host and the guest desktop automatically resizes to fit the window.

Reference: https://www.linux-kvm.org/page/SPICE

I use this function in my shell initialisation file:

Code: Select all

function spicec {
   qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 4G -cpu host -smp cores=4 -soundhw hda -vga qxl -drive file="$1",format=raw,cache=none,if=virtio -spice port=5900,addr=127.0.0.1,disable-ticketing -device virtio-serial-pci -device virtserialport,chardev=spicechannel0,name=com.redhat.spice.0 -chardev spicevmc,id=spicechannel0,name=vdagent &
   spicy -p 5900
   pgrep qemu-system >/dev/null 2>&1 && pkill qemu-system || :
}
Called with

Code: Select all

spicec /path/to/disk.img

Gnome-boxes doesn't hold your hand either, at least not in Stretch. The guest machine needs spice-vdagent which is dependent on systemd0 (elogind0 doesn't work).

Thanks for your code. I might be able to use it.

Very nice None1975, FVWM used to hang a lot on that WM years ago.
Almost the most customized (stacks) window manager, It comes raw and dirty at first, but once ones put the heart and soul on it can make it flying :)
