Instead of writing a huge post on a bunch of opinion about Ubuntu and friends i will simply inquire if there are any plans to move to a debian build?

I noticed on the tmosb instruction page there was a single sentenance mention of possible debian builds...

Ultimte Edition Debian would truely be the Ultimate OS!! <BREW>

It is there, however untested. I built a powerpc version of Ultimate Edition in the past, no longer works. Ubuntu ripped down porting via debootstrap. I doubt I would have to worry about Debian tearing down their debootstrap server. Let me roll a request on one of our build servers and see what I get.

Never finished it, I have alot on my plate right now. I will come back and hit it full force once I get bugs worked out in Ultimate Edition.
theemahn@JackHammer:~$ cd wip/
theemahn@JackHammer:~/wip$ ls
ultimate-edition-4.6-x64-lite ultimate-edition-4.6-x64-lite.iso
theemahn@JackHammer:~/wip$ rm -R *
rm: descend into write-protected directory ‘ultimate-edition-4.6-x64-lite’? ^C
theemahn@JackHammer:~/wip$ su

root@JackHammer:/home/theemahn/wip# tmosb --build debian-7.7-x64.iso
▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ TheeMahn's O/S Builder (tmosb) 1.9.4, 04/17/2015 ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒
▒ GNU tmosb home page: <>. ▒
▒ E-mail bug reports to: <>. ▒
▒ Be sure to include the word tmosb somewhere in the Subject: field. ▒
▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ Operating System pre-build information for: debian-7.7-x64.iso ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒
▒ Ultimate Edition x64.iso x64 NO STANDARD MATE
▒ Is the above correct? ▒

WARNING: this will take a long time and download vast quantanties of data. (Y/N)

Is code already written for it yes:
Code: Select all
declare -a DEBIAN=("7.6" "7.7");
declare -a DISTARRAY=("Precise Pangolin" "Precise Pangolin" "Quantal Quetzal" "Quantal Quetzal" "Raring Ringtail" "Raring Ringtail" "Saucy Salamander" "Saucy Salamander" "Trusty Tahr" "Trusty Tahr" "Utopic Unicorn" "Utopic Unicorn" "Vivid Vervet" "Vivid Vervet" "Precise Pangolin" "Quantal Quetzal" "Raring Ringtail" "Saucy Salamander" "Trusty Tahr" "Utopic Unicorn" "Vivid Vervet");
declare -a UEARCH=("x64" "x86" "amd64" "i386" "armel" "armhf" "powerpc");
declare -a OLDRELEASES=("2.6" "2.7");
declare -a DISTBASE=("Ubuntu" "Debian");

More so then just that:
Usage build;
▒ tmosb -b <TARGETISO> ▒
Invokes tmosb to build <TARGETISO> from scratch. The format of the ISO
must comply as follows:
Valid arguments are as follows and <REQUIRED>:
Distro: ubuntu, ultimate-edition, debian
Version: 12.04, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10, 14.04 for Ubuntu
Version: 7.6, 7.7 for Debian
Version: 3.4, 3.5 - 4.5 for Ultimate Edition
Architecture: x86, x64, armel, armhf, powerpc
Lite: lite
Gamers: gamers
Server: server, minimal-server
and / or GNOME to add [OPTIONAL] Desktop Environment(s)
iso, lite, gamers, server and DE's as per synopsis is [OPTIONAL]
Example: tmosb --build ultimate-edition-4.2-x64-lite.iso XFCE
Will build Ultimate Edition 4.2 64 bit Lite Operating System in ISO format.
adding the optional XFCE DE

See another issue to fix, tmosb will build up to Ultimate Edition 4.7. That is not reflected in the help system. Running Ultimate Edition 4.6 now for over a month w/o issue. I booted 4.7 server this eve. Not minimal server full. Work to do there as well. There is I am sure over 12,000 lines of code in tmosb. Will probably double when I get into Debian.

Please be patient with me.

Best things come to those who wait, quality work takes time.

Thank you for a fantastic distribution.

now that Debian has released 'jessie,' it would real nice, if there was a Ultimate Edition based upon that :!:

- but great things come to those who can wait. ..

While an unpolished #.0 release is nice; I prefer waiting for at least one bugs-fix point-release. ;)
