Gobo and ROSA (info) ...


i'd like to install either one of those ...

someone who has used it can inform ?

how is this:
Quote:
GoboLinux is a modular Linux distribution: it organizes the programs in your system in a new, logical way. Instead of having parts of a program thrown at /usr/bin, other parts at /etc and yet more parts thrown at /usr/share/something/or/another, each program gets its own directory tree, keeping them all neatly separated and allowing you to see everything that's installed in the system and which files belong to which programs in a simple and obvious way.

This is what you see in the root of a GoboLinux system:
Code:
~] cd /
/] ls
Programs
Users
System
Data
Mount

/Programs is where all programs reside. No exceptions. You can explore what is installed in the system by looking inside it:

Code:
/] cd /Programs
/Programs] ls

Each program entry contains all files for that program, stored in a versioned subdirectory.

Code:
/Programs] find Bash
Bash
Bash/4.4
Bash/4.4/bin
Bash/4.4/bin/sh
Bash/4.4/bin/bash
Bash/4.4/bin/bashbug
Bash/4.4/info
Bash/4.4/info/bash.info
Bash/4.4/man
Bash/4.4/man/man1
Bash/4.4/man/man1/bash.1
...

Multiple versions of a program can be maintained simultaneously, so you can alternate between them as you desire, or even use both at the same time when necessary.

Code:
/Programs] ls -l OpenOffice
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  9 root root 4096 2005-09-22 01:07 1.1.4
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 2005-09-23 04:36 2.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root    5 2005-09-23 04:36 Current -> 2.0

/Programs] ls -l GTK+
total 12
drwxr-xr-x  10 root root 4096 2005-10-02 01:39 1.2.10
drwxr-xr-x   9 root root 4096 2005-08-21 05:48 2.6.7
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root    6 2005-10-02 01:39 Current -> 2.6.7
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root 4096 2005-10-02 01:39 Settings

SuccessStory? Posting distro 'fyi' info? I'm confused here, sorry...
Replying to your own post in #2-4, removed it from ZRT visibility unfortunately.

I have used ROSA and I think it is great. It supports a lot out-of-the-box.
Gobolinux I have not used. If you like ROSA, both Openmandriva and Mageia are similar.
