    Update: I just set up a automatic mirroring solution for http://linuxice.openice.org. It's pretty cool how it works, it's basically an apache cluster that will redirect to the mirrors based on traffic.

    If anyone wants to contribute by offering some web space, I can help you get setup. All you basically need is a server with rsync access.

    This should keep downloads fast.

    Hi guys. I'm going to give the latest snapshot a try and will most likely be able to offer a mirror next week, as well as start becoming active in this effort.

    Quick question though. I prefer to do a lot of this on my actual carputer device which is a little web pad with no cd that I can boot off. I usually create a free partition and use debootstrap to install new versions of the OS. Can this be done off of your repos or not? The crux is I cant install off a CD directly onto the device which I think is important in testing these things. If not, I'll use a virtual machine.

    thanks

    there's no reason why you can't debootstrap debian/ubuntu and add the linuxice repo (when we actually get it set up). I'm trying to make the system install as easy as `apt-get install linuxice` which will install all the other packages.

    take a look at how the live-cd is created: http://wiki.openice.org/index.php/Linuxice2 it starts out as a debootstrap'd chroot and then builds from that...

    The most help I can use at this point is setting up an automatic solution to build all the packages and automatically create a repo for them.... I think I can get all the packages built easy enough. I don't yet know how to build the repo without a 3rd party helper utility (I used falcon before).

    Sorry I should have poked around on the wiki a bit more. I had taken a casual look before and not seen anything pointing me to get started with linuxice2 and then I saw this thread.

    Helping with the automation of building packages and putting them into a repo sounds like it's right up my alley, so I'll definitely help with it. I'll get a VM setup for the repo and get back to you on the details. Do you guys do most of your collaboration on IRC?

    If my tests go okay today, this will be LinuxICE2-Alpha1.

    There is a testing repository setup at http://linuxice.openice.org:88/packages/testing. Here's the proper apt line if you want to try it:

    Code:
    deb http://linuxice.openice.org:88/packages/testing ./
    there are a number a new packages: fbd, wifiproximity, smsd, obdgpslogger, navit (0.1.1+svn), linuxice, linuxice-desktop and linuxice-standard. The linuxice packages is a metapackage that will install everything.

    Anyway, try it out, see if it works for you.

    Today's image (LinuxICE2-2009-08-28.iso) when it get's propagated to the mirrors, addresses the following bugs:

    icepanel icons: http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=26&pos=0
    gpsd autostarting: http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=28&pos=2
    pulseaudio: http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=30&pos=4
    mingetty (autologin): http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=31&pos=5

    so we need to know:

    Does Icepanel display properly? yes/no
    Is gpsd running on boot? yes/no
    does sound work? yes/no
    after ice configure runs, does autologin work? yes/no

    Feedback welcome. Thanks!
