Debian Hamradio Pure Blend [SOLVED]

#1

Post by turtlebay777 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 12:58 pm

Hope this is in the correct forum?

I have noticed there is a version of Debian Live called " Debian Hamradio Pure Blend " and wondered if there's any chance of a MX version of it please?

There may notbe enough interest in it for the present developers, but if you run DHRPB live and see which packages it has installed that are missing from MX, then copy over any extra config files it has in /etc/skel to a fresh MX install's /etc/skel folder before installing those additional packages, I would think you would have an MX version. Then you could use the snapshot tool to make an install ISO of your respin if you'd like to share it.

Also first check to see if DHRPB is using any extra repos.

The Debian Hamradio Pure Blend produces Live DVD images that can be used to try out the Debian Hamradio Pure Blend on a computer without having to install it first. The images also contain an installer which can be used to install Debian along with the packages from the blend.

Think there are nearly 90 packages in Pure blend. If you are wondering what is in it, there is a separate downloadable Manual with a lot of info about the Blend.
