Just don't start the GUI. Don't log in to Lightdm login screen and switch to a tty. Easiest thing to do.

I am downloading the image now.. It would be real nice if it had a debian style text installer where you could just uncheck the desktop box..

I see. Well you are going to need to remove alot of stuff. moksha libefl and lightdm and so on. As well as prob install some stuff.

Sorry but most users would not appreciate that and users such as yourself wanting to use a server would prob download and install an ISO more suited to such a usage.

This image is the more suited one.. It would not take much to simply add a second line to the boot that says GUI install and Text install.. I was looking at cooking a image that supports legacy hardware when I came across this distro. The project i am looking to use it for is HAM radio project and makes use of older thinclient machines to use a repeater controllers..

Are you a dev for this project?
if not do you know if the devs frequent this forum?

It seems like your familiar with debian so why not just install the 32 bit version without the desktop?

Bodhi is based on Ubuntu which is based on debian.

The hardware requirements are basically the same.

Ubuntu makes some things easier.. I am currently running debian on the units that I have in production. Debian is also the chosen os for projects like allstarlink.org but most people in the community who are running one of the 4300 nodes on the allstar network often ask why they dont build it on ubuntu. A lot of these people are running ubuntu as a desktop and get frustrated when they go to say issue ll in the terminal but it dont work and they need to go learn what ls -l is..


I use the debian installer that has the non-free included that solves a lot of issues people run into with debian.. Not every one understands the quirks of debian. My installer will compile the asterisk code on just about any debian based distro. I figured at the end of the day one of the projects that support older hardware would do a cli edition but it seams that everyone has the same outlook on what is needed in the markekt.. I just cant imagine it being so hard to produce a cli option in a installer you are already building, but I guess I will find out as it looks like if I want it I will have to do it myself.

I am indeed a developer and I created the latest rounds of ISOs. But I essential don't have time to create a non gui legacy version. I am unsure even how long that would take me but my price per hr would have to be high.

Ubuntu does indeed have debian roots but it also has differences. If you wish something like bodhi on 32 bit why not just use Ubuntu's mini iso, Install it and customize its package list how you want. Jeff originally made the Bodhi 32 5.0 legacy ISO and i used that to create the BL 5.1 legacy ISO. But Jeff started with Ubuntu's 18.04 mini.iso installed it and uninstalled and installed what he wanted. WHy can't you do the same, ubuntu's legacy 18.04 mini iso can be found here. If I created a legacy non gui 5.1 iso it would indeed end up being very similar to this ISO. The main difference would be our legacy ISO has a non-pae kernel. Other differences would be minor, some config files changed and so on.

I installed bodhi for the first time in several years - the 64-bit image was just being developed back then. I suspect the dev team is small, so why not simply avoid the issue ?.
Change the default target to multi-user.target and it will effectively boot to what was runlevel 3. Just tested it, works as expected including network.
KISS.

TBH I did not know they still had an 32bit iso.. SMH.. That will do the trick for me I can use cubic and slap some extra .debs in the iso set my scripts to compile asterisk and drop the mic..

I am just couriers as I have looked and have not found anything on this.. I have not compiled a kernel in years as the stock ones work for everything I need OTB.. The machines I use have PAE extensions but if I wanted to compile and use a non PAE kernel do you know of a guide that tells you how to include it on a iso after I compile it..

I have never repacked a iso.. I have added .debs with different tools over the years but never a kernel..

ll is just an alias for ls -l. It is probably already in a users .bashrc file but just commented out.

Ubuntu stopped building a 32 bit version which is why the iso file is in the archives.
