Re: remastering morphix


Arabbix can be morphed just like morphix can. the documentation is outlined clearly on sf.morphix.org website and you can do what you need to it. Arabbix 0.8 is recommended to start from and it has all what is needed to start morphing Arabbix. Here are my recommendations:

1. make sure your kernel supports loop mount devices
2. Get your self some CDRW to make some testing images
3. Read the wiki on morpnix.sf.net it is filled with alot of small ideas and tricks.
4. ask on this list if you need any help :)

Arabbix is NOT Knoppix based. The first version was, later versions are
not. It is based on Morphix.

We have been harassing Anmar to add documentation about those very same
things you are referring to, so it is somewhere down his todo list. You
can always contribute to the harassment and ask him again ;)

Yes, it is very possible of course. The only dependencies would be the
qt library and kde base libraries (whichever they are).

P.S. This should really be in 'general' and not 'developer'.
