    Did you have the touchpad issue also with the latest build?
    About 11.04 i'm afraid it could require too much work and adaptation.. if anyone want to help I'll share sources and steps to create the iso.

    Re: FreezyLinux

    New build.
    * added metapackages (freezy-desktop)
    * improved panel appearance
    * reduced iso image size

    This image seems quite stable.. if no other issues are present it can be considered final.

    Looks good,

    I am going to try it in virtual-box. Hopefully it should run with out any issues on Guest additions as i have ad problems running Ubuntu 11.10 with guest additions.

    If goes well i might try it on my net-book. Let you know how it goes.

    Keep us abreast of your findings. I also like to test distros on various equipment. (to say the least)

    I'll be trying Freezy soon, look forward to it.

    Re: FreezyLinux

    Added new build, link is in the first post.
    * reduced image size, now is 744mb
    * replaced banshee and mono-libs with rhythmbox

    let me know how it works.. almost every modification is packaged in ppa so it will be easy to spread updates among installations.

    cheers

    Re: FreezyLinux

    I have installed your latest version of Freezy in virtual box and is working perfectly. I have also managed to get the Guest additions installed and working properly.

    As i am planning on putting it on my net-book as it collecting dust at the moment so i shall be able to tell you if it works well.

    The net-book is Asus eeepc 900 and it runs Ubuntu 11.04 with out any issue so Freezy should be no problem at all.

    Ill let you know how it goes.

    Re: FreezyLinux

    This is absolutely gorgeous. It is so gorgeous that I am considering removing LMDE from my old hardware. I'm currently running it in virtualbox, and loving it. I would love it to be more customisable though. For one, I prefer my panel on top. Is there a way to use the GNOME 3 fallback with something other than Metacity maybe?

    I installed this in Virtualbox, and although it is still sluggish, it runs better than Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity 3D.

    2 Things I would like to see in a future release:
    1. Smaller ISO size.(Under 700MB)
    2. Less Ubuntu branding.

    Keep up the good work!
    Say no to Microsoft. Say yes to open source.

    If you want to customize panel you need to ALT+Right click .. you can move and add new panels or manage applets.

    You can install compiz as metacity alternative and select from login window the correct session, otherwise for a lighter window manager also xfwm4 works great.

    I'll keep in mind both suggestions!

    Re: FreezyLinux

    yeah, I discovered how to customise the session after some google searching and have kept playing around with it.

    This is showing promise for me. I'm still trying to decide what to use on my main laptop, and freezy is looking more and more appealing since I've wanted to minimise resource hunger for a while now. Major props for bringing out the fallback mode to the forefront like this, I would probably have never even tried GNOME 3 if it wasn't for your spinoff. Screenshots/Videos of it were enough to make me puke in my central nervous system. I wish you all the best, you've earned a supporter in me. This is one to follow.
