Lots of new packages


Over 60 new packages are available at:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...inux/download/

Look in the G12 folder for most of them. The Amigo-FX folder contains the packages needed to build your own 'current' Amigo (on top of a basic Slackware installation)

Amigo-XP PR1 users will find updates in the Amigo-XP folder.
Also, the 'scripts' folder has some real handy stuff for Amigo/Slackware.

Below is a full list of packages used in Amigo-XM, which is a miniature version of Amigo-XP designed for running from a USB or firewire device. All this together makes an installation of about 240MB.

From the list below, you can install all the regular slackware packages. Then with just the 5 packages you asked about above, you'll get a nice desktop using Windowmaker and WDM display/session manager.

The AFX-Desktop package contains the ROX-Filer which gives you the file manager and Drag-n-Drop desktop. It also has WDM and a couple of other things.

The Base-AppDirs gives you a few more ROX Apps including the trash can.

AFX-gmessage-plus is used to provide a few simple dialogs, such as for shutdown/reboot.

Base-Configs gives you most of the friendliness of Amigo -the configuration files and default settings that make it possible for regular users to work easily and quickly, without so many 'permissions' and 'access' problems. It also sets up the default desktops for users.

amigo-hwsetup contains the Amigo automatic hardware setup routines that automatically configure your graphics hardware and hard drives and CD/DVD devices. It basically creates just two files: /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/fstab. It does gather more info and stores it in the /etc/sysconfig directory. This directory is not present in regular slackware, so hwsetup can work there without 'bothering' any regular slackware config files.

I've placed these 5 packages apart because they are the basic stuff needed to make a Friendly Slackware installation. By installing the regular Slackware packages from the list below on a reiserfs-formatted
partition and then adding these 5 packages, you'll get an instant Amigo/Slackware. Be aware that this package will set up for a GUI login (using WDM). The nice thing about WDM is that if X is not correctly configured, it will gracefully crash after 3 tries. I've setup the GUI login on runlevel 5 instead of 4 (as in Slackware). That's so that if you want to use GDM or KDM instead of WDM, you only need to change the default runlevel in /etc/inittab to make the change.
