I have accomplished all that I wanted to do with these builds and processes..
I have a new repeatable build phase by phase process that is also documented
Phase I - Base of VSIDO with a new build of Debian Sid with just the etc/skel and /usr/local/bin and a few other areas (icons and cfg files) inact..these are the guts that are added to give VSIDO the look and assembly
Phase II was to add the most basic back Fluxbox, X11, terminal, SpaceFM
Phase III began the process of what apps were necessary for Network setup and Internet and fundamental tools for restoring or Recovery CD
Phase IV I just completed adding back the basics for multimedia. GMusicBrowser is and installed and is now ully functional. MPV is the video player that also acts as the audio device for music playback in GMB. I was not aware at how powerful MPV was as a media player. In short, it just plays everything
What is shocking to me is that adding the two of those and getting a VSIDO Multimedia build only added 12 more MiB to the ISO's. What I thought would be the most difficult was actually the easiest
They are now uploaded to the test site and are fully functional.
I have also cleaned up all the menus..
This could be released as a replacement for VSIDO if I wanted to go that route.. It is more than 200 MiB's smaller than the current full version ISO's
x32 is 374 MiB
x64 is 371 MiB
