/g/ is building an OS

It's a riced out, gentoo based desktop distro

Has a nice low ram footprint

irc.rizon.net #cloveros

Looks like hot garbage. That said, I tried rolling my own distro before and it isn't as easy as I thought.

I remember when 4chan was good, I didn't realise people with any abilities even posted there any more.

I can't understant why someone would waste time on it. Why not just do an sh script to auto configure the system (independent from distro)?
Why base it on gentoo? Wouldn't be simpler to use Alpine, sta.li or Morpheus? Why so many bloat on it?

Install Gentoo is a classic meme m8, and countless imageboards have been beating it like a dead horse. This trend will not stop any time soon. To put it bluntly, it's a meme OS what do you expect?

That is literally impossible, even more so because Gentoo uses eselect, emerge, rc-config, etc. And the configuration is only one part of the scripts.

That's my point, why would someone waste time in a meme OS? Nonsense. There's many projects these people could contribute, that's not complex, like revive Notion (fork of ion3) with vertical tabs, or do scripts to configure some system for best security.
Or, if they are really into "building an OS" thing, why not do a non-persistent ramdisk fork of OpenBSD? Like TailsOS, but with actually good and secure code, and not the trash bloat these people from TailsOS did.
>That is literally impossible
I don't think so. It's just really complex.

I'm actually down for this idea. If they manage to make it eye candy with things like Cairo Dock, the ability to change desktop environments and pre loaded with other privacy respecting tools/programs for convenience I can see it being pretty enticing.

That in making sure the install does the round about from SystemDick. I didn't have any hope in Tox when it first started but that's come a long way too. I don't have any expectations, but a little hope never hurt anyone. It's probably best to make as many suggestions as possible so this thing rounds itself out better.

I like the idea it is cooler than a 4chan android app which you figure would be called Clover. I have a feeling that redditors will like this more than the users.Now the problem is reddit adopting this model.The next thing you know all of the respectable developers and shit have moved to Narwhal OS
The trendies would turn open source into liberal acceptance. Postulating cucks that downgrade packages that are not libraries because they are hatespeach. Shitheads just breaking their system by only having libraries installed because they think it means liberal.

For this though in the spirit of shitposting a cool mod would be a launcher with keybindings. The goal would be pressing F5 to trigger the package manager update/upgrade.

For a start, they need to drop KDE, it's just a fucking mess now, this isn't 2004 any more, KDE and QT a shit. They need a proper GTK theme package that will give them a consistent feel through all desktops. For instance, that mate theme is just the default Menta, the gtk colour scheme is putrid and the icons are the decades old defaults. Again same issue with the fonts used. #! used to have a package that kept defaults in an /opt folder and then copied them into a users home and assign ownership with a simple script.

Also, it looks like two different KDE desktops there. I thought the one with the "kde" filename was lxde for a moment.

That shit's sadly happening now with or without /g/'s attempts. Open Source sadly has been thoroughly cucked by these people because it costs nothing to obtain or learn, they usually have other people do the heavy lifting for them and they come in and try to 'clean up house' and make rules in an Open Source community of all things.

Sadly it's not a case of them getting in, it's already of a case of the Open Source community needing to stand up to these assholes and tell them to do this stuff themselves. I guarantee the face of Open Source will shift back to its original form over night and these people will go back to complaining about the patriarchy ruining their imaginary tech career and other useless rambling nobody cares about like how Howard Stern doesn't respect their gender identity.

If you want to keep these assholes out of the project make sure we have cool people on board already. Put your foot down as soon they show the tendencies. Remember what's killing Github. Lack of meritocracy. If the people have no merit to stick around on the project and all they do is throw around weight, then throw them the boot. If you're worried about Reddit making competition in the form of another Open Source OS, don't make Clover OS normie friendly, make the reward for actually KNOWING how to install and use it and worth becoming tech literate. That is part of why I said load it up with convenient tools.

Just a brief list, PLayOnLinux, Wine, Converseen, Gimp, Shotwell, SimpleScan, Office replacements, ClipGrab, Mumble, Pidgin, QBitTorrent, Zorin Web Browser Manager, Live Wallpaper, Audacity, Curlew, HandBrake, K3B, Kazam, OpenShot, QMMP, UNetBootin, BleachBit, Firewall Configuration, GParted, Text To Speech, OnBoard and Orca Screen Reader just to name some.

The idea isn't making it normie friendly, it's still gonna have the fuck you gates in front but will reward those who actually try to learn it with a convenient experience.

Do that and we'll be talking about an Open Source OS that few will be able to compete with to the point it makes Ubuntu look like the slow bloated error ridden piece of shit it is.

Already in the genesis of that garbage. Take a close look at that thread. You can tell which people are cancer. Animu wallpaper shit and people talking about tits. Those are pretty much the same people we're talking about here and yes those Twatter,Leddit and Jewtube douchebags are going to jump on it and meme it like 'free as in freedom' to push their political joke of a controlled opposition movement of divide and conquer. You deal with them the same way you deal with SJWs and other people of that type slithering in. Tell em to fuck off. Do the same to the kekfags. They have nothing to do with the development with this. They are a socio political wart on the project as they don't contribute anything but use it as a platform for fellating their own ideals. It's an operating system, not a social movement. This is why you make it harder to install this. It keeps out these braindead faggots.

These anime memers also bring another cancer with them. Product placement, and with product placement comes sellouts and proprietary software which kills the entire point of this OS. Beware of them. These same people invaded /g/ and now you have threads like Headphones, watches, phones, wallpaper threads etc. All aesthetics and no substance and I'm already seeing them in that thread.

What this needs to do is be marketed to people who want to use a dependable OS. Not the equivalence of some Macfag who's only going to use it as a fashion accessory and then jump onto the next meme browser. In case folks didn't see in the thread, literally one of the first comments is 'so why should I use this?'. Transcend the meme status of all the fucktards who want to complain about every other proprietary OS and preach about how this will fail without ever trying themselves, transcend all the memers, the cancerfags and the SJW infiltrators and make it the most solid OS you can with features that make it a powerhouse of a contender while still maintaining a status of a light weight distro that's not only free but better than the competition and gives you all the aesthetic and programming freedom for you to still call the OS your own.

Well, CloverOS is 90% me. The other 10% is input I got from others and testing. One can easily edit the bash script and make a fork of it, and generate a livecd. It's really easy to spin your own thing.

I spent the entirety of yesterday giving free Linux tech support to people who just couldn't Google. Now, Kekistani people are a notch below that even. I don't think it'll be popular with them.

I'd think they want something more forward like TrumpOS or something like that. But do your thing man. Input is golden because it means it'll appeal to the more tech inclined person and not the shitters. With the acception of a few things to steam out it looks good so far so keep up the great work and don't let anyone talk down about it or hijack what's yours.

I've often heard people complain that the aggressive optimization flags that CloverOS uses can cause compatibility problems or weird bugs. (Also that they make compilation take an era, but that much should be obvious.) Have you actually seen shit like that happening?

>Your computer is not shit, your system is
Well I guess you are right. When I compared Gentoo with LXDE and Lubuntu, they were just on another level. Just what the hell is it doing.
I mean I could even load this one imageboard on nightly (or firefox-trunk) without crashing which leaves me with link2 and midori if I wanted a lightweight browsers. But those tend to not display sites correctly and it makes me a bit paranoid not able to run browser with some sort of adblock when some adds are known to be malicious.

Anyway I'll humbly take your advice and try to Xmonad.

Anonymous 06/30/2017 (Fri) 23:39:55 [Preview] No. 8810 del
Well, links2 will block most of the shit, since it has no support for JS and CSS. If you need to block specific images linked on the HTML, it has a function to do it (just go on the image and then on menu you can press Link > Block image). You can also get some uBlock list and put it on your host file, this should be a better solution.
Or, you can do what I do: use links2 without images and just enable it only when needed (press the asterisk symbol, "SHIFT + 8").

And, yeah, Xmonad is really good, give it a try. I used it for about a year, before switch to ion3 (because it has tabs, good for links2 browsing and organization).

Wait a minute, fuck you, the computer is absolute dog shit. So dog shit that I have to create a PXE server for it if I want to install new OS to it. You can't boot from usb stick, hell those broke off from this machine.
Because this is such a piece of shit, it's the reason why this doesn't have any sight of usage on the keyboard. God I'm a idiot, why did I buy this. Oh well, this will be great opportunity to learn more about sysadmin wizardness stuff.
tl;dr installation of new os to this machines is a pain.
Seems viable.

Before another spam storm comes, I'll take this thread and all the suggestion to my "lab" in which I create a new computer in the software side. After testing I can finally approve it to the wild world. As of it now, it can work but it still need some configuration.

Anonymous 07/01/2017 (Sat) 21:57:20 [Preview] No. 8815 del
If there's a problem with the full set of CFLAGS, most likely the package doesn't build. In some cases, the package builds, and doesn't work. It might take me some troubleshooting to figure out what's wrong, and rebuild the package and push it to cloveros repo.

You can see the packages that didn't build with the full CFLAGS here: https://github.com/chiru-no/cloveros/blob/master/etc/portage/package.env

I've been maintaining my system since 2012, and CloverOS is based on that. I've found that Ofast, Graphite (minus two settings) and LTO are generally OK for most packages. I don't see any other distro putting in the effort to use the newest GCC features, so I took it upon myself to do it.

Think we can get some love for stuff like Wine? It'd make it more rewarding for the vidya enthusiast who wants to into gentoo. It'd also be cool to have some support for people who like to play around with audio and video editing. The more enticing the goodies inside look, the more people will want to use it. Take OS like JessBuntu for example. That was all the rage when it came out but unfortunately aged like fine horse shit because Ubuntu can't deal with updates destroying one part of your OS or another.

People like variety and they like it even better when your OS says, I can do everything Windows can and can't. Make it the year of the Linux chief. This is the most promising OS I've seen come out in a while.

That's actually a pretty good idea. A smaller package for the /g/entlemen on the go and a larger package for the full home entertainment experience. Audacity was actually one I was thinking of too. I mention the audio editing side of it because it would be fun to shit on Applefags and show once and for all that a free OS can out do their locked down unix BS.

So far the emulators you've already mentioned is a /v/ goer's wet dream. I think you've got this in the bag in terms of appealing to everyone.
