Journal Journal: Linux Idea

Ok, I have an idea, just a simple one, but it is my little idea. I'll get to it before too long. A scalable and sane linux packaging system. Everything except a small, approx. 80Meg, part of the system is updated. There is an option to scale down, then scale back up. The package system will see directories, like /usr/doc/, which contain over 500Meg of files and asks if you want to move it. LVM by default, so all switches are flexable.

A sine curve goes off to infinity, or at least the end of the blackboard. -- Prof. Steiner
