Laying the Foundations

09 Apr


After a couple of false starts – actually I heaped too many programmes on top of one another and created dependency conflict hell! Here’s a list of programmes I have installed as at this point:

* libogg-1.1.3
* libvorbis-1.2.0
* vorbis_tools-1.2.0
* paudioscripts-1.4.2
* firefox-3.6
* kompozer-0.8b3.en-US.gcc4.2-i686
* sunbird-1.0b1
* thunderbird-3.0

As you may see there are some very up-to-date programmes that I have included. The WM is IceWM as KDE is too heavy – but many KDE elements have been included as KDE offers the best solution for some programmes. Also, I like konqueror as a File Manager.

The idle RAM usage is 29.4Mbs – a little higher than I expected and expect that to go to 33mbs with the timidity daemon up and running. There will be a few more background operations running before this is complete but I believe I will kep it under 40mbs.

To fix the desktop entries for the required KDE programmes is going to be a long and tedious process – 142 of them!. I am considering making an expanded GUI for administration programmes to unclutter the menu.

Some of these I have made into Puppy Pet Packages – tested using a fat-free version of Puppy 3.01. – –
