Dream Linux revival?

Post  jpisini on Thu Feb 28, 2013 3:06 pm

Anyone have any interest in an updated Dream Linux? I have been goofing around with updating it for a couple of months and I finally have most of the bugs worked out. I replaced the Dreamlinux installer with the Refracta one. I also replaced the old 3.1 kernel with an 3.8 one from Kanotix. It boots and runs on my laptop and in VMware that is all I can promise. Not a bad little system if you are an XFCE fan.

John,

I'll give it a whirl, I rather like some aspects of xfce. Currently my xfce is SalineOS, but it's not acting too well with Vmware tools at the moment. Mad

Let me know what you think. I always liked Dream Linux and was sorry to see it go. Originally I planned to rebuild it from scratch just using the graphics they opened sourced but I never had time so I had to settle for tweaking the old one and getting it updated. Not an official product or anything just a little tribute to a distro I used to play with.

For some reason when running as a live on a spare computer I keep getting a disconnected from network and am unable to access the internet. Much prefer my 'Cairo Dock' to what is it AWN Question Very Happy Very Happy

Not sure about the network it is rock solid on my laptop. I looked at Cairo but it was going to pull in too much software for what it did. Tried Docky as well but it wasn't better than the installed one.
