comments:

I recommend running with devel_17.sb loaded.
Download here
Also you might want linux_4.1.6_src.sb for kernel header files.
Download here

There is no browser included in ISO but if you want something to start with I offer:

midori
Download here

hey Scoob

looking good .. heres my vdev.log,,all two lines :)

Code: Select all

02048:00007F08E21DB700: [          vdev.c:0395] vdev_error_thread_main: ERROR: [helpers] [WARN]: Could not find pvs in /sbin/pvs.  LVM physical volume symlinks in /dev/disk/by-id will not be created.
parent: all initial devices processed


maybe booting a little faster... without actually timing it
all hardware good, usb mouse,usb keyboard etc..

|-vdevd-+-15*[daemonlet]
| `-2*[{vdevd}]
15 daemonlets... is that a lot?

stuff you already know:
peasy not setting ip on ethernet(wired) > i run dhcpcd which does the trick

That is looking really good! Been a lot of work put down for it.

all hardware good, that is great news - I'm happy

The boot time is a bit worrying. I am working with an idea
along the lines of a semi-static /dev with vdev as hotplugger
I think this fits a setup with AUFS

No that is standard, I got exactly the same

I actually went back and checked connman again but to much a blackbox for me.
I will put in time to make a good peasywifi version for alphaOS as the next project.
It seems peasywifi is in a stable state upstream so now is a good time to port it.

Thanks for taking time and test

PeasyWifi doesn't work. It cannot write its config files. This bug still remains in 17.3 from 17.2

alphaos_17.3-20160202-x86_64 PeasyWiFi 3.4 saved a profile properly after I created the /network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles folders inside /etc

Yes it helps!

It was a known issue and I thought I fixed it in the 17.3 version of alphaos.
Apparently not.

Should probably release a fix just for that.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention

I mention it on first page with a hack-fix. Will release a 17.4 with that fix incorporated!
