Anyone having crashes in firefox v42 (I'm not getting this) can you please start it from a console and record any other data possible about the crash. I have tried to max it out with panels, flash videos, everything. I can't even make it crash.

IMO & FWIW A newbie will stick with a new distro if the following things work:

It boots
the screen works
the keyboard works
the mouse/touchpad works
the NIC or WiFi works

With these items working the user can get help to answer questions and find solutions to problems. If one or more is not working the newbie will move on.

I know what you're trying to tell me beny, and I appreciate it, but I don't know, yet, how to do those things. ie install isomething from repos.
brokenman wrote:Ed_P Do you mean the little applet in the panel doesn't let you connect to wifi? Please give more information if you are going to post in the bug reports section. Very difficult to troubleshoot without information.
Yes, I understand brokenman.

Mousing over the little applet in the panel bring up "No network connection". Clicking on the applet, which I can now do with v3.2, brings up a window that says:

Code: Select all

Ethernet Network
  disconnected
VPN Connections  >
The latter opens to:

Code: Select all

Configure VPN...
Disconnect VPN

Oh I can download things with this pc beny, just not when it's booted to the current Porteus v3.2 iso. And with this version I don't know where to download things from or how to convert them into something this version supports and where to put them once converted. Everything is starting over with this version. :(

Before reboot I checked they were all activated and they were and locale was wrong so did a full reboot and locale is still wrong.

PS I thought for one second that Igor's suggestion on mtab and util-linux might allow me to run

Code: Select all

pman -S util-linux
but on second reboot it was not enough

so for now still booting up without any changes= cheatcode

unsure if ISO related bug or not

after installing obconf, and running it in a terminal I saw a number of errors relating to next bit
so I used root powers to upgrade package, but errors remain

obconf still opens and works though

Code: Select all

su
pman -S gdk-pixbuf2
snip
su guest


obconf

unsure if this is a bug but time looks not right On a previous version setup-time did not work as the timezones were showing 2 timezones on each line
That has been fixed thanks, now one tz per line.

2) I set the system clock and next my timezone but I thought in the past build, there was an option to choose localtime versus UTC and that appears to be missing

3) I do note your kind mention of using the /config dir to save time configs over reboot but I am not sure if that allows for DST correction?
or do you hope that syncing with a timeserver resolves that? So better answer my own question eh?

changed my config/time to read
#Ignore=yes
TIMEZONE=Australia/Perth
NTP_SERVERS='203.0.178.191'
ENABLE_NTP=yes
As the Eastern states are on DST but Perth is not, on reboot time and date are correct so not a bug for config just an issue for setup-time for some low priority revisit?

I will release anotheer ISO with changes wworking this weekend.

For the locales I just tested in fresh mode. After downloading en_AU I found the locales working on next boot.
Before reboot locale showed en_US but localectl showed en_AU.
After reboot both showed en_AU. Are the glib and en_AU modules in your modules directory before reboot?

The gdk-pixbuf errors look ominous but they are just theme related errors.

I don't recall changing anything in the setup-time script. I have tested syncing with a time server and it is the ONLY way I can get correct time here with DST.

yes I showed them in the code box and in normal font

big edit, cos I am an idiot !

I forgot to blank out your config/modules that preserves en_US

not a bug sorry to waste time :oops:

No harm done aus9. Your input thus far has been invaluable.

Thanks Ed_P. I think I mentioned this elsewhere but I will put it again here until the next ISO comes out. Please open a root terminal and issue:

Code: Select all

pkill wpa_supplicant
pkill netctl
systemctl start NetworkManager
Now your network manager applet should be working.

@beny
hi if you have linux system download squash-tool
The core already has mksquashfs and unsquashfs commands in /usr/bin
xzm2dir and dir2xzm are in /usr/local/bin and that is in your pathway as well.

not sure about downloading squash-tool

@brokenman

relating to ca-certicate issues for the update leading to 2 folders for ca-certificates and related matters
I have started a post about ABS here
viewtopic.php?f=137&t=5235

I haven't had time to run or modify the Official build script but at least I now have it.

EDIT due to post below by ncmprhnsbl.....plus I needed the force option as the package already exists
Thanks heaps

run as guest

Code: Select all

makepkg -f PKGBUILD
should build it but as I said have not had time will do so over next few days

@aus9
pretty sure makepkg should be run as a normal user..
the wiki isnt very clear about this .... note the #(root) and $(normal) symbols in the code boxes..
