Become a Linux Developer


I'm looking for people who'd like to become a part of BlackDog64 Linux developers team. The project is in a every early stadium as I had no time to work on it during the last 2 months due to moving to another country. But now i'm ready to go but still need few people to help me.
BlackDog64 is now a BlueWhite64 fork and stays fully compatible with it.
the goal is to make a user-firendly Slack/BW64 distro,
with easy installation process and as much newest software as possible
installed out-of-box. I want to combine .TGZ safety and stability with
OpenSUSE/Ubuntu easyness & usability.
I'm looking for people to help me with the development and to manage the repository.
If you'd like to join me please email me on

No offense... but why another slackware port? The installation of slackware is no more complicated than any other distro install process. The only difference is that slackware uses ncurses menus instead of a stripped down x (damn anaconda installer). So that leaves only packages. You would be better off supplying a half os install package where you only manage the packages you have to and make it designed to install on top of bluewhite.... But then I guess that's all you would be doing anyway is mirroring the 64 bit repository of bluewhite...
