Thank you for the feedback. Regarding VBox Guest Additions, they fall just outside of the 'need vs want' space saving situation... They take up a huge space on an ISO for a small amount of people to benefit from.. I like them too and set them up if I need them... it is that easy, but it is not feasible to have them on the ISO
Interesting that a logout did not resolve the tint2/X issue.. on every test I ran with it that worked. The install worked and that is what matters.. By restarting FluxBox from the right click menu options you can reset tint2 as well
I am a huge fan of IgnorantGuru, the dev of SpaceFM and several other incredible viable tools.. We have used SpaceFM from day one here and really I could not see ever using any other file manager
We already use SMTube as part of SMPlayer ...
Apt is that way by design knocking off 40 MiB of space on the ISO using bleachbit before building does this... Sorry!
Yeah, I tought it's probably a space issue.
Indeed. Guy has really awesome ideas, and even more awesome way of implementing them in practice ( I'm talking about spacefm primarily ).
Making the thing lightweight, fast and simple like it is, and at the same time having the level of customization and advanced features it has, is beyond words really.
I, for example, do most of the dev work inside it. Since using plugins I can do a lot of stuff, ranging from building packages, interacting with git, having an app menu, comparing files etc, all without the need to frequently switch to other applications or terminal(s).
I tought it perhaps got left out unintentionally.
Certanly not a problem, and there's certanly no need to be sorry!
^ That is new... I have only seen it as of today and only in using the Automatic partitioning option.. Did you use that one or Manual partitioning?
I always use manual partitioning.
The hidden grub timeout is set for 2 seconds - which is probably enough time to use the key binding to get to the menu if you want to boot a different kernel or rescue mode - what is that key combo, ESC? However, since VSIDO is somewhat unique in installing memtest by default, you may want to go back to the usual visible grub menu option.
@Snap - yes, not having any users in the sudoers file is the norm if you enable the root password during install - the fine print after you switch the button to "on" points out that sudo for users is disabled when root password is enabled.
GRUB is hidden by default, if there are no other OS's found.
However, this behaviour can be disabled with a seed.
should_hide_menu = False
Btw, (holding) "Shift" is the key to display GRUB.
I'm looking into what can be done about it, but it seems that both Debconf and user-setup were designed around Debian default of not having a root pass at all ( empty one ), or there is a bug in either one.
I might be wrong though, so when I have a more definitive answer, I'll let you know.
