I have installed debain mint that clem made and updated it to kernal 2.6.23 and gnome 2.21.4 by using apt-get upgrade it worked and still have all the eye candy of mint i looked at the dream installer that zonas was talking about it would be cool but isnt it using etch ruby and gtk i tryed runing it and it stop asking for modules that are not in unstable debian so you have roll your own . I was thinking that if you added the mint candy and fix apt as to not remove the candy then you could use the debain installer as is just add mint to the source.list

I know development of Debian Mint is hot and heavy, but perhaps we should consider looking to Parsix Linux as a good basis for Debian Mint. It's based on Debian Testing and appears to have ported many of Ubuntu's conveniences. Take a look here: http://www.parsix.org/html/index.php

I was in sidux forums and they were quite skeptical that if mint developers can pull this off, but were encouraged that now they have some competition.
This is great for linux

I've used Sidux since its inception and it's an absolutely fantastic Debian operating system. You wouldn't believe how fast it is! The main concern, obviously with Debian is that it's a "rolling" release. As new packages enter the Unstable repository, then flow to Testing and eventually trickle down to Stable poor coordination or failure to apply patches, etc. sometimes causes breakage in all or part of the operating system. Sidux minimizes this by using an intricate system of upgrade warnings and custom scripts while also employing many of their own custom-built tools to ensure fairly smooth sailing. Mint does have its work cut out for it if it intends to use Gnome as the primary desktop. Gnome in Debian is notorious for breaking frequently and causing other problems. Even Sidux won't officially support a Gnome desktop and the version of Gnome in Debian Stabe (i.e., Etch) is only 2.14. Many people fail to realize the amount of work Ubuntu devs put into just Gnome, in order to provide the latest release every six months. Mint may have better luck combining the talents of the Linux Mint KDE CE community with the Debian Mint CE community to produce a solid KDE centric desktop. Perhaps some tools and scripts might be borrowed from Sidux, Kanotix or even DreamLinux and modified to create a rock solid Linux Mint Debian Edition. Alternately, perhaps Ubuntu's Gnome packages could be ported to the Debian Edition of Mint and pinned to prevent problems when upgrading the rest of the system. Just some thoughts.
On a related topic, how's development coming Zonas? You've been quiet for awhile.
Need any help? Testers?

Hay if you want to build a debian mint why not use live-helper i try ed it and it builds a good live cd and you can and any of the mint candy you want and its all in unstable/lenny it makes a live cd that you can put any uplash on it the cd is fast
I tryed it on a amd64 3000 and a p3 866 both worked great.

Agreed. It would be much easier to do a KDE version of Mint than a GNOME one. Even better, one based on Etch/Lenny and not Lenny/Sid.
And a *true* "community" distro

Parsix uses Lenny/Sid with Gnome with no problems, Stop putting Gnome down I use E17 Gnome And KDE and my preference is in that order I use KDE on ARCH, and only Arch, Its so Boring, technically its superior but thats where it stops. Gnome is a good base and customises well and hides the Technical stuff under the hood. e17 is the eye candy I use it 99% of the time. Back to parsix its good very good as with Sidux the scripts are good and they port a few of the better ideas from Ubuntu like, and they work.
