I really like the spins and also the CoreCDX edition...

But.. There's any chance to make a similar kind of release with pppoe out of the box? I mean rp-pppoe package included?

It's kind of dificult to update and install this kind of versions without this packages in someplaces like here where I live. The ADSL modem through pppoe is still very massive around here (Uruguay)...

So, as you are making new spins, that's my proposal

Also, a second proposal for spins:

Do not take only desktop as chances... Maybe play around with sets of different types of software let say:

"Sabayon Development" SW included:

Light desktop -> Fluxbox, OpenBox, Lxde XFCE...
Compilation packages (that usually comes out of the box with SL but..)
IDES: KDevelop + Geany + Netbeans +Eclipse (I Don't konw... just about of tastes)
UML design: Umbrello
Database - optional : MySQL, PostgreSQL, Informix... db4o (OODBMS)


"Sabayon Multimedia" SW included:

Audacious
Avidemux
Musescore
XBMC
Amarok
...
(stuff like Musix's got)

Gamer (like the gamer edition of SL 5.1)

I dont know, I'm just inspired by the Fedora's Spins :P

See ya!

With these spins, we are hoping that other people will kinda take off with various spins as you mention. The possibilities of these spins are up to the people. We can't really be producing a dozen different isos for download. The man power and upkeep is too much. Hopefully we have some good molecule documentation soon. It's at the top of Fabio's todo list. If you are interested, take a look at molecule and producing your custom spin

Wolfden,

I appreciate the offer, probably I'll try to make one, and I understand the effort off you guys!!
I didn't mean to put any pression on you, just taking the idea to make improvements.

About the spins, I'll try...

About the rp-pppoe... If a accomplish to make a spin there will be no need put it on the mainstreams versions :P

Keep with the work you're doing, it's going great!

It's all good! You can even try filing a bug for the missing package.

I did put up a wiki page last night that hopefully everyone can understand

Making your own spin is kinda addicting
