heh wow, i've been keeping a journal in my .project file on cheek.com [finger firstname.lastname@example.org], now that this is here i can take the "finger me" out of my .sig 8-).
made build 2 of redmond linux today. build 1 was the first proof of concept, to see if i could reverse engineer caldera's installer's rpm config files and get an installable product. success! build 2, today, is the second proof of concept; can i get an installable product with the lizard source from their cvs server? i've got build 2 on cd now, will install tomorrow and see.
assuming all goes well, the final POC [in build 3] will be whether i can get my own RPM's to install instead of caldera's. if so then redmond linux will be in full swing!
afaik no-one has made a distro based on caldera, it's about time someone does. fyi caldera keeps their build process proprietary, as in it's a trade secret, i emailed and even talked with them on the phone. so that's why the reverse engineering. just don't tell the feds on me.
as soon as i finish the POC's and get situated with a new domain i will officially announce redmond linux. fun fun fun.
