1 • Slackware Package List (by Joel Ebel at 2003-12-08 13:43:10 GMT) |
To get a list of installed packages in Slackware and derived distributions, you just need to list files in /var/log/packages. So:
ls /var/log/packages > package_list
would work fine.

i'd be interested in buying some distrowatch merchandise if there's some to buy :)
3 • RE: Slackware Package List (by Offer Kaye at 2003-12-09 07:05:12 GMT)
Joel, don't you mean:
cat /var/log/packages > package_list
rather than "ls"?

The bad news is that nobody has offered help so far...
5 • DistroWatch T-shirts (by MixMatch at 2003-12-09 13:33:09 GMT)
I'm a graphic designer and am interested in doing something on the side right now. What did you and the rest of the DistroWatch community have in mind? In all honesty DistroWatch doesn't have much in the way of branding. I'm thinking anything from a cartoonish graphic(perhaps something with tux), to some sort of linux comment, to simply using the DistroWatch header image. There is also the possibility to create a combination of the three.
Anyway, I will wait a few days to see if anybody else has any interesting ideas; if nothing shows up, I'll just try a few ideas.
6 • T-shirts (by n0dez at 2003-12-09 23:46:46 GMT)
What about distrowatch.com below a three circles or squares. Each circle or square would have a Linux distro logo such as a twirl, a fedora and an s (debian, fedora and slackware, which are the most representing Linux distroes).

May I suggest that in the next DistroWatch Weekly you get feedback from readers... This one didn't get visited too much aparently...

"There you go... you gonna make the gentoo people angry! "
and the Mandrake people....
10 • T-shirts (by Kant Draw on 2003-12-12 18:29:32 GMT)
One idea I'd like to see depicted is a field where Linux distros are blooming. Depending on how busy the artist wants to make it, the number of "my favorite is missing" complaints can be minimized ...
Over-the-top options: a kernel castle/mill in the distance, a gnu pulling a cartload of tools, graphics/UI balloons trailing streamers, etc. etc.

"debian, fedora and slackware, which are the most representing Linux distroes"
There is no set of distributions, which represent other distributions. IMHO that's what Distrowatch is about. Otherwise, it would be enough to have pages for only the most representing distros.
I would like to have a Distrowatch T-shirt, which is about Distrowatch. Simple, impressive, usable (wearable). I would suggest a small Distrowatch banner on the frontside at left, and optionally a big Distrowatch banner on the back.
12 • Issue 28 Delay (by ladislav at 2003-12-15 12:16:14 GMT)
DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 28 will come out up to one day later than usual. Sorry about that. It's just one of those days when everything happens at the same time and everything requires immediate attention.
13 • T-Shirt Design (by Hal Hockersmith at 2003-12-15 17:49:14 GMT)
Ok How about this. We've got three Tuxes with binocs looking in three directions. Angled to the left on Tux1 is on binoc lenses in mandrake star and slackware s. Tux 2 (Facing straight forward) has fedora and debian (the major bases for many distrobutions) on the lenses. Tux 3 (angled slightly right we have gentoo and knoppix (cant for get the live cd distros. A caption if you choose. and then across the back we put the Distrowatch Banner. Whada think?

Archie Live CD
Archie was a complete live Arch linux system to be run from a CD/USB, built with the KISS philosophy in mind. No packages have been removed to provide a full Arch linux system, yet it delivers the fastest performance with no excessive bloat. Archie uses its own hardware detection tool (lshwd) ideally to support wide range of hardware with low detection time. Archie also provides extended features such as multi-lingual capabilities, nesting capabilities, and hard disk install.
