Update 14.3

Postby simargl » 09 Jan 2014, 12:38

Changes in this version:
- busybox replaced with toybox in main sfs (not in initramfs), it has all needed functions in much smaller size
- openbox theme titlebar made to match Gtk3 header bar, all apps now have same or very similar titlebar
- create save file dialog, changed start size to 200MB, maximal 5GB, stepper size 100MB
- fixed missing pidof symlink
- removed gettext and gettext.sh from the main sfs, modified frisbee and grub4dos-ui to not use gettext

Programs:
- removed gnome-mplayer
- added gmp-video, Gtk3 fronted for mplayer
- emendo, gmp-video, simple-radio, taeni use Glib.Settings
- all applications have support for localization
- simple-radio new dialog to configure radio stations, notification bubble on song change with nice icon
- taeni new preferences dialog
- emendo, drop down search bar instead of search dialog, highlighted search and some fixes...

Did you change something?

blkid command in livekitlib/find_data_try didnt recognize
USB drive formatted with fbinst. triple MBR
(last time I know this was ok was in alphaos based on puppy)

1. The drive is found by BIOS
2. The drive is not found by blkid
3. The drive is found on booted system, spacefm

Lot's of things changed since alphaos was based on puppy, but I didn't change anything in livekitlib script outside of save file activate function.

all good here (mostly) ;)

makesb: "/usr/bin/makesb: line 26: [: ==: unary operator expected" --otherwise works fine
==> ..... "/usr/bin/makesb: line 26: /dev/sr0: No medium found"

set wallpaper in spacefm menu broken-
workaround: i just edited it to 'imlibsetroot -s f %n'

some odd behaviour from gmp-video in combination with compton-git:
background/video shadow renders transparent
workaround: kill compton (could be my config, havn't looked into it)

trouble with alpha x account (tried with from=/dir/alpha_xx.iso toram)
1. edit rc.conf no to autostart
2.logout and $su alpha
3.$alphaosx
4.fails with something like: (error cannot write to /tmp/session.1000.log . permission denied)
5.startx gives more similar /tmp permission stuff
6.looked at permissions on tmp... symlink tmp has correct permissions(read write exe for all users)
but /mnt/live/tmp doesn't have write permissions for alpha..
7.changed permissions on /mnt/live/tmp (rwxrwxrwx) in running system (how to make this permanent?)
8.alpha > alphaosx works now.
9.clock set in .start only works for root.
10,some problems shutting down from alpha....have to logout, and su, first...

You're right. /tmp inside initramfs had wrong permission, I fixed that now on bitbucket. Tested makesb and it doesn't show that error here. On 26 line scripts is checking install partition, to exit if system is on /dev/sr0.

you can type in terminal: su root, and then wmlogout.

I think this error " unary operator expected" would go away with quoting in test in line 26
However this doesnt fix the underlying problem.

exchange

Code: Select all

if [ $SAVEFILE_PARTITION == "/dev/sr0" ]; then


with

Code: Select all

if [ "$SAVEFILE_PARTITION" == "/dev/sr0" ]; then



If it shows error or not depends on what value is in $SAVEFILE_PARTITION


would be interesting what ncmprhnsbl would get with

mount | grep "/mnt/live/memory/data" | grep -v squashfs

I'm sure he will get more than one line.

This could occure for instance if one had mounted an iso residing on /mnt/live/memory/data
for instance /mnt/live/memory/data/Linux/AlphaOS64/alphaos_14.3-20140109.iso on /mnt/iso

/mnt/live/memory/data/Linux/AlphaOS64/alphaos_14.3-20140109.iso the bold would still be
matched with grep statement and would not be filtered away by being squashfs ( it is type iso9660).

I would recoomend using "grep -w" to force PATTERN to match only whole words in the above
grep statement ( from line 24 in makesb ).

did> mount | grep "/mnt/live/memory/data" | grep -v squashfs
> no output

changed makesb, adding quotes .."$SAVEFILE_PARTITION" == etc... to line 26
which did indeed remove error msg..
i typically run toram from usb with no savefile,+apps+config bundles in modulesfolder
other stuff gets activated as needed
also tested using from=***.iso with no extras

Could 'fresh' kernel parameter be made to exclude /alpha/modules folder as well?
or another param be made that does this?
