Why do I care? I would ask the same. Let me create a new category “Debian” for the entire situation. Be sure to read what the fella above me asked, I should have Quoted him.

Not on my watch!!!

I can’t imagine why a platform that is open source, meaning I can see your source code and 100% understand what you are doing. They are thinking the users are not programmers, well not all users are users. I highly suggest a read of the entire article, not just where I am in writing the current document MALWARE in my Linux, we are not running Micro$oft here. I have got your back.

Let’s nip this in the bud now.

Building Ultimate Edition 4.2.1 Gamers

Building Ultimate Edition 4.2.1 Gamers

I thought I would return and build a few LTS’s (Long Term Supported) releases. What used to take me a month for one, I built and uploaded all 6 in one day with the newest (in testing tmosb 1.9.2) your feedback is appriciated:

Sorry, for dual monitors. I actually have tripple monitors & dual video cards in crossfire:

I know some people like to dabble into the cutting edge. I present to you a beta of Ultimate Edition 4.4 x86 Gamers built with tmosb. I would like to take a moment to also say thanks to all the beta testers of tmosb the following file is now autogenerated using tmosb:

I will not rob you of the build logs (they are also on the dvd, put there by tmosb): tmosb-1.9.1-build-logs.tar I can’t integrate the md5sum on the disk, or the above auto-generated information, because that information would change the md5sum of the disk. I will now provide that information:

I wish I could upload at 10 MB/s ;) The future of tmosb? I have incorporated a few new switches, none are available as a public release currently. I intended to keep this as an undocumented feature, and will allow me to advance the tool even while I am at work at my other job, so much for undocumented:


--YES


It stops all prompting it will not ask you if you are sure, I will write a function to start at the top and build all 156 operating systems while I am at work at my other job, I can’t have it asking questions. Come home and find my 9TB Raid array full lol. I’m going to have to buy a few more hard drives, I can see it coming. I have also written a function for loading out ISO’s to your current grub, no more wasting a DVD to test, or loading it out to a thumbdrive. I will test the ISO at SSD speed. Qemu is great for a virtual machine, however there is nothing better then a real machine.

I have spoke of the changes that are in works etc. On our forum, I suggest a read in it’s entirity. I did have to do a few things by hand in the release of Ultimate Edition 4.4 x86 Gamers

Do not think that tmosb data is not passed:

I told you I do not want to build Operating Systems. I want to program. I will have software doing so for me and I ment it. This is the tip of the iceburg, none the less enjoy Ultimate Edition 4.5. I want you to understand I am going to put Ultimate Edition on your phone, tablet and PowerPC as well. It is just a matter of time. The LTS I built I will go through like a fine tooth comb. Take Ultimate Edition 4.5 as a grain of salt at this point.

I am not going to provide info other then have Ultimate Edition 4.5:

You will probably have to wait for the servers to populate, slow at best. Sorry, this is no large release as far as I got to have it. I will not take the time to work it into such. Big things are coming, please kick back and enjoy. Our traffic, by an educated estimate will manifold 4 fold. Let the ride begin.

I know you can see version 1.8.9 in both scenarios, however I version lock tmosb until a public release. Makes it hard on beta testers, my condolences.

TheeMahn,

I did not forget what LTS means.

by on Aug.27, 2014, under How to, Linux, Programming, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

LTS (Long Term Supported), does not mean those that are running Ultimate Edition 3.4.X have to suffer as Ultimate Edition 4.2.1 for example advances. I have now incorporated code into TheeMahn O/S Builder (tmosb) 1.8.9 to upgrade existing Operating Systems. The screenie below is very large due to dual monitors higher then HD, thank you multi-monitor application for setting it up for me.

LTS

In case you can not figure what is going on or cant see the large photo, I am upgrading Ultimate Edition 3.4.1 to what will be Ultimate Edition 3.4.3 using:
tmosb --upgrade ultimate-edition-3.4.1-lite-x64.iso
uecorebuilder 3.4.3 lite

I will eventually push into one command:
tmosb --upgrade ultimate-edition-3.4.1-lite-x64.iso 3.4.3
Did you know it took me over an hour to install Ultimate Edition 3.4.1 because of mediabuntu repos being non-existant? KeySnatcher has automatically rectified that situation as it is upgrading the distro.

When all the tools I have written (pages still to write in previous link) come together, they will sing in harmony of a perfect Operating System as well as Operating System constructor. I am currently sorry tmosb 1.8.9 is not available to the public until I see solid release, after solid release; built with the tool.

On a lighter note, I have seen people building Operating Systems using the same tool, however using as the base for example running Ultimate Edition 4.2, building Ultimate Edition 4.3. I will formulate the tool to not care what Operating System you are running and just provide exactly what you want. I built Ultimate Edition 4.4 (Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn 14.10 based) with 5 additional DE (desktop environments) 2 or 3 days ago and very sucessfully I may add; it is just a matter of time.

Donors…

by on Jul.04, 2014, under Linux, Programming, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

I have a ton of people climbing on my back to get their phalanges on Ultimate Edition 4.2 the final release that is. They won’t let me finish it without inturption. I grant you beta testers and donors should have it now. Speaking of donors one of the issues I seen was ubiquity splash claimed you would be running firefox 26, far from the truth & did not inject your names into the O/S. None the less a need for a re-build, my donors list was 3 or 4 months behind, I have rectified that as well. I am unsure if you know this, but soon will. I wrote an application a sub-program of tmosb (included in Ultimate Edition 4.2 as well) that scans the donors file, injects and builds a deb specifically for what we will soon be able to build together, does not have to be Ultimate Edition either:

Is the above information correct (Y/N)?

Took me a few hours to update the donors page as I was going along. Let me point out a few thing as it stands, tmosb is integraded in the Operating System, please do not feel it is even close to what I am projecting it will be. When Repostorm enters the picture uncountless error free Operating Systems will walk the planet like the Jolly Green Giant. We will talk more about that later.

Happy 4th of July,

The storm is over…

by on Jul.01, 2014, under Linux, Programming, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

My employer has given me off until July 7th, expect some large changes coming soon to a server near you. The past week or so I have been doing some heavy coding in Repostorm. I’m done programming for sometime to come. Repostorm has managed to squash a ton of errors and warnings in the Mate Desktop Environment(DE). I will now begin construction of the final release of Ultimate Edition 4.2 Lite based on the Repostormed debs. Just to give you some perspective on what difference this will make in final production. In any Operating System that uses Mate 1.8 the following is the session result of running repostorm –analyze on a virgin Mate 1.8 DE entire Repository:

Repostorm 1.8.4 is generating a full report.
SESSION RESULTS
Error(s): 248 | Warning(s): 4546 | Info: 0
Writing permanent logs.
Execution Time: 11m43s

After Repostorm has repaired issues in Mate DE:

Repostorm 1.8.4 is generating a full report.
SESSION RESULTS
Error(s): 4 | Warning(s): 31 | Info: 0
Writing permanent logs.
Execution Time: 27s

I’m providing the log files for your viewing pleasure:
Before and After the storm has settled.

I have had tons of requests to do the same to XFCE, Cinnamon, etc. Let’s face it time is never on my side, best I can say is we will see.
