PostPosted: Fri 10 Aug 2007, 02:13    Post subject:  Looking For Distro Creator (Will Compensate)
Subject description: Project finished
 

Greetings!

I'm interested in a Web browsing-only Puppy, probably based on BarelyPup. Can even more of the remaining apps be removed? And Firefox (or more appropriate browser) added?

But (possibly) the biggest request of all: separate out the wizards and setup programs into a different distro (a "configurator"), leaving only an optimized Puppy. Boot from one to (re-)configure the other, then boot from the (re-)configured distro. Hoping to make it as small and fast-loading as possible.

I think I can pay up to 100USD for this. And/or donate older Dell Dimension PC(s) or possibly other hardware. (This is near Chicago, IL, USA)

I'm thinking mostly of browsing or using Web apps, but not that concerned about using a *lot* of apps (e-mail, Web-based bookmarks, maybe documents/spreadsheets).

Would appreciate any interest and/or input.

Thanks!

Mark

Cool DIY

It is the Linux way

Start with barelypup and what is pizzaspups remove apps called? Will that work?

We all start off saying "We can't do it" - then we do Smile

You can start with barelypup then add a browser of your choice from a dotpup, pet, or an installer. A .pup works by just clicking on it. Then run the remaster from within barelypup.

I guess if you have not done it yet by this time (it's easy), I can help you. You can write me for any more concerns via raffymn (at) ya h o o (dot) c o m. Then if we finish it, we donate the payment to Barry.

Thanks for the quick responses; they're *all* appreciated!

Lobster: I agree, and really would like to get the experience/skill with this; I'm just up against some difficult time constraints for a while (job/home/family, etc.), and I'm looking at this for an Internet Cafe at my job (church denomination headquarters). It remains a hope in the future for me, though.

Raffy: I kind of had you in mind for this, as I've looked at your work with minipup. I also think of you and donating equipment: didn't you once write about encouraging a visit to the Phillipines and bringing some PCs? Smile Would love to provide some but don't think I'll be able to swing the trip. Crying or Very sad But maybe there's an alternative. I really like the idea of the $ going to Barry. Let me follow-up with you later.

David: thanks for the reference. I think I came across this last night but for some reason (too tired?) I didn't connect. Maybe it's also my interest in splitting the configuration distro from the browsing distro. But this will stay on my radar.

Again, thanks for your responses!

Take a look at Icepup (http://www.icepup.info). If it is close to what you are looking for, we can talk. (I have a form at http://www.toddrichardson.com/ that you can use to contact me.)

Sincerely,

Todd

Thanks, Todd!

That's a nice-looking and cleverly-named Puppy. I'm going to try working with Raffy on this for now, but if we decide I need to do something else, I'll certainly keep this in mind.

In the meantime, best of luck with Icepup!

By the way, David, I should also add that I've long admired Rhino's Puppy videos and the contribution that they make.

(And thanks to all who've contributed so much to Puppy and what he represents)!
