Hello all,
my knowledge of building a distro is pretty limited.  But I am willing to learn and contribute.  I have been using all sorts of linux distros for about a decade now, but I have never really taken the time to really dig in and learn the nitty gritty.
Maybe this will be a good chance now.

Pinguy is great, I would be very happy to see it back in some form again!

Lets see what we can do

Try LFS to find out what is involved in building a distro from scratch.
After 2 or 3 days you will have a linux system that will boot to a shell.

Pinguy was basically a fork of Ubuntu which is a fork of Debian.

IWOS will initially be a fork of Pinguy but eventually a bottom up build.
The first release will be a remaster of the latest version of Pinguy.

The next will be more of a stand alone version with the best of other OS releases included.

Then there is the kernel build which is also different. Takes a day or 2 to get that right.

Soooo - there is considerable work no mater which path you take.

Thanks, I built  two, in 2010 from the Ubuntu minimal, one with Xfce and one with Lxde.  Nothing to write home about, but learned a lot.  They worked, but lets say, no one would want them. LOL

Hi there,

I am LNT (over from Pinguy Form) - too bad that Pinguy OS is pretty much gone. But I will watch this space for the things to come.
As far as knowledge and time goes - I believe I am of very little actual help - I am afraid.

Thanks,
LNT

..one question - what is IWLINUX or IW OS about !?
..where does the name come from?

Years back I bought IonicWind Software - ie IW
IWLinux was built because I hate windoz and needed a place
to do compiler development.
IWOS is just the future PinguyOS

(04-13-2017, 07:33 AM)So glad Pinguy OS is being continued in a new form. I used Linux Mint and Ubuntu for years, along with a Red Hat variant Mageia ( which does work well ).However, I stumbled on Pinguy, and for some reason everything I run, even Windows programs all work in it. There are some glitches, but minor ones.  I was really happy with it, but then when I saw it was possibly going to be killed I was stunned. I am so pleased you guys have taken up the torch.I went to Gnome Ubuntu thinking it was dead, but still have been running my entire desktop machine with Pinguy and Gnome Ubuntu in dual boot.( Laptops are a Windows and a Chromebook. )  Thanks for your efforts ahead of time. Patrick ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kantoquad Wrote: Welcome,

Welcome, learning is fun, when you are interested at least ( I am talking to you Calculus, you were the exception)

Hello - ScannerDrome is the name - Loved Pinguy Os - And hope that you guys will be able to keep the Core Idea behind Pinguy Os alive - Although Im sure this project will grow into its own identity over time.

Im willing to help out when i can if someone will teach me a grunt task to do - and Im sure there has to be some grunt work Smile

Just throwing out some thoughts and questions
So how many developers do we have so far?
I think Larry is the head guy right?
has anyone made a Grunt list?
has anyone made up a sort of rough draft road map?
What is the over all condition of the Project as it stands now?
is there any sort of Meeting day? or Discussion day? Planed for the future on the forum
