Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,16:42Couple of days ago I was bored, so for fun I put up a server ;)
Took some days to get creative enough to create a minimal site though..
Just because I could, I gave myself a top security SSL cert (256bit aes/1024bit rsa) and made my server always encrypted, even if you go to http:// :D
It's slightly empty-ish, but you can find plans for ucDSL there.
PS: please click "if you trust me" on the first page, to accept my root certificate. Thanks!
Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,16:44Oh, as I don't consider myself even a poor developer yet, but a poor student, it will turn itself off for nights (at 23:00). I'll turn it on in the mornings if I remember, so if you can't access, don't fret..
Gotta save some electricity, right Lucky?

Sure, save a polar bear. Is that 2300 your time or UTC (if you're not UTC yourself)?
Posted by curaga on Aug. 06 2007,14:56My time. Gmt+2, but currently in DST which would make it gmt+3.
I'd rather save a penguin, but if a polar bear comes with it (not eating the penguin though ;) it's fine by me
Posted by curaga on Aug. 06 2007,15:01I'd also like comments on uClibc DSL in this thread, pretty much nothing's decided yet
Posted by stupid_idiot on Aug. 14 2007,13:06Hi Curaga; I am thinking:
(1) Catalogue DSL, get the whole picture (how everything fits together).
(2) Adapt the build method (LFS with modifications??) to (1).
How about you?
Posted by curaga on Aug. 14 2007,13:33I'm not really sure about what you mean with that cataloguing, could you explain?
Posted by stupid_idiot on Aug. 14 2007,16:54Meaning, account for every file - what it does, which software package it belongs to. And from this, a schematic of the whole distro. Of course, I've never actually built/remastered a distro before - please feel free to disagree. I thought it was natural to have an overall checklist - that's how you get 'practically a 100% clone', right?
(Oops, the above is assuming a straight-forward clone of DSL 3.x.)
Posted by curaga on Aug. 14 2007,18:26I ain't going for a clone, but for something my own, that will keep only the best

Posted by florian on Aug. 14 2007,20:50I thought you wanted to create a uclibc built of DSL. But it seems you're trying to create a new Linux distribution, not just a DSL flavour.
Posted by stupid_idiot on Aug. 14 2007,23:02Which parts do you think should be kept, and which should be left out?
Posted by curaga on Aug. 15 2007,14:50It will be a DSL fork, a "flavour", but not a clone, it will have my touch on it..
@stupid_idiot: All I have planned is on my server, I'll update the page when I think of anything
