^ Indeed

We all use the FOSS version of the debian font LaudatioC Font  (http://downloadfontsfree.net/fonts/5836/laudatioc.html)

It is installed as a default on VSIDO

I made a VHD of my Windowz 7 HD, it runs around 2.75 GB on VirtualBox with 2GB and 2 cpu's allocated.
I expected Windowz to max out anything allocated to it.  :D
It still runs pretty smooth on the VM even while running MS Publisher.

Post by: jedi on May 14, 2013, 05:05:31 AM
Well, so far, the adventure is great!  Just wanted to post a scrot to let everyone see the benefits of having 'systemd' installed on their system.  Not only does it make boot-ups and shut-downs much faster, it also allows you to do an awesome job cleaning up your Grub2 menu!  Below is a shot of my Grub2 menu at boot-up, with every single entry working and booting in incredible times.  (including the 32 bit version of VSIDO)

(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/grub2systemd.jpg) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/grub2systemd.php)

If this gets anyone's attention, and you'd like to know how to do this, you can follow the wonderful "How To" that VastOne wrote in the "How To" section of the community forum!  There are a couple of 'additional' steps, that with VastOne's permission, I'll be more than happy to provide...  (to make it look like the one in my scrot)

VSIDO with systemd; fluxbox and i3 - because there are days you just need to tile  ;D

dropped tint2 and went with fluxbox's own iconbar, clock, system tray.

@Vastone - have you been in contact with the fluxbox dev's; I think that either on their website or wiki they maintain a list of distros that use fluxbox as default.
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots

Working with Shotwell, getting my picture library imported and thought maybe you'd like to see what a hard working machine looks like!  I'm used to a few hundred Mb in use and was surprised to see upwards of 3Gb's in use when importing a large picture library.  Glad to have the RAM!  Anyway thought the graphs looked cool...

The (my?) HP2000 has some overheating issues; so far the Core heat has not gone above 60 C running custom kernel 3.9.2 and VSIDO - you're my new hero   8)
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on May 15, 2013, 05:09:55 PM

You have a certain method for building your custom kernels?
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on May 15, 2013, 06:00:36 PM
Yes -

http://verahill.blogspot.com/2012/07/compiling-kernel-35-on-debian-testing.html (http://verahill.blogspot.com/2012/07/compiling-kernel-35-on-debian-testing.html)

I add a step. After unpacking the kernel, I use the:

Code: [Select]
make mrproper
step outlined in the kernel readme; the kernel has always compiled correctly after I do that; and if I want, I can use "make menuconfig" to go through all the sections if I need to.

The driver for my SD card reader always compiles if I go that route.
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on May 15, 2013, 06:36:28 PM
^ Would you do me a huge favor and write your process in a How To here which includes the steps you use for the current kernel?

I think the VSIDO forums and users would benefit from your writings...

I appreciate it!
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on May 15, 2013, 08:12:12 PM
^^ Interesting... I am building (or attempting to build) kernel 3.9.2 now...

I thought I had every build package needed for any types of build as part of the vsido-welcome script but what I have found is kernel-package is not installed and that is obviously needed for make-kpkg to even begin

Needless to say, it is now part of the welcome script
Title: Re: May 2013 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on May 15, 2013, 08:39:02 PM
@PackRat, Now that I have successfully built one using your method and the linked url, I can do the How To...

Pretty awesome looking. You're actually using 3% of your swap file? What are you running that does that? I can't remember ever having activity on the swap file - none that registered with conky, htop, or any other system utility.

Post by: lwfitz on May 22, 2013, 04:21:27 PM
Thanks buddy.

Yeah I saw that and am not totally sure why it dipped into swap. My guess
Is that it's left over from a ceni bug I posted about in the support thread.
This machine has 16gb ddr3 so there's no reason to go into swap  ;D

OK, so Zorin OS 6.3 officially sucks IMO so deleted that VM.  Playing around with the different distro's out there gives you a real appreciation of VSIDO!!!  Still hands down the best I've ever used.

I did play around with Arch Linux this weekend, and here's a scrot of it running in a VM on VirtualBox in VSIDO.
