Re: BDRV or maybe CDRV

One of my goals is to stay as close to the alphaOS structure as I can while getting an 'adrive' back. Thats my goal too provided it meets my needs, If it doesnt I'm prepared to go out into the djungle. Currently running with an adrive and non-merged alpha and extras using this modified DISTRO_SPECS...

BDRV or maybe CDRV

Sim I was thinking. I always add the same stuff to new AlphaOS'es I'm thinking making a sfs and load it to BDRV-layer (sfs added to iso) I've seen BDRV is paired with desktop_*.sfs Do you think its a good idea to add it as BDRV or should I create CDRV? Maybe easiest would be a custom sfs loaded with...

Re: Version 12.0 - Gtk 3.10 and Emendo

Sim, What is the logic behind what is in alpha_12.sfs and what goes in extra_12.sfs? *EDIT* Now also on 12 with modified init for grub iso-scan. Sim can I ask you to tell me if you ever change init script? Modified for taking savefile with file prefix alpha12 and a whole lot of custom mods since I w...

Is this transition seamless? Can I expect any trouble?

Is mplayer actively developed?

Re: makesfs for AUR

My iniial reaction was that packer should handle both cases. 1. A list of packages from official packagage database 2. A mixed list of AUR targets and packages from official packagage database For example I tried to do makesfs2 a2ps aalib and get an error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting f...

Re: Control Center, Setup Savefile and HardInfo

I think it would be good to add the control centre to the system submenu. I was combing the menu trying to find a way to make a savefile (didn't think of looking on launcher). Also, it seems I'm only able to open the 'setup savefile' dialogue once, anyone else find this? Before it was located in th...
