Project Description

Arch-Linux inspired, not based, not a fork in the true sense but really a fork. Generally source based and conceived, but without a finite commitment. The source and git/archiving technique will always accommodate the quick and effortless way to build from source.

All core base system packages rebuilt without systemd, udev, logind, and resistance to using zstd, but having the ability to use it selectively or by the package manager to decompress zstd compressed packages. Also optionally turn off all ipv6 functionality, since it only serves the "internet's" problems and not our own, yet!

For everything that Obarun provides, packages with direct systemd running dependencies, its init and service supervision software, joborun acts as complimentary. In rare cases where we disagree with the way Obarun has built a package we will rebuild our own. Pacman and its configuration keeps the system in order, drawing the most essential base system from joborun, the rest from obarun, and whatever else may be needed either from arch or by selecting to build from source in a quick automated way.

In addition, we have repackaged Obarun's 66 to cohabitate with runit, we will provide an initial setup for both and only runit on the base iso. We will support no particular DE or DM, we consider them useless and only of aesthetic value to users in need of an ms-windows/apple kind of graphic computing environment. We are oriented to unix like sysadmins, not those who seek ms-win alternatives for free (as in beer) but those who seek freedom from mega-corporation control and influences.

The resulting system can easily be converted to "just Obarun" at any point, or anything else without a need for re-installation. Obarun already provides a tool to make sure your installation is purely obarun, which means it will replace all joborun packages with Arch.

The name: JWM OpenBox Obrarun RUNit therefore has the above meaning. The logo reveals an A for Arch fading and an O for Obarun becoming more complete.

System Requirements

AMD-64 x86-64 only

Any 64 bit intel/amd machine should be able to fly with joborun
In a vm it boots and runs in X11-openbox form with about 90MB for s6/66 75-80MB with runit (but this is about the only benchmark that runit can have an advantage over s6. On hard metal the figure is slightly higher by about 30-40% but this depends on the specific machine. On an old AMD phenom the figure is 20% lower than it is on an i5.

With 2GB of ram unless you start 20 tabs of a popular browser in pages with tons of audio-visual content, you may run into issues, but we don't know of other systems that would beat joborun.
