Thank you neko...

Is it possible to convert .txz to .xzm in Porteus? I am compiling "hardened"
binaries/libraries for the Porteus toolchain (005-devel.xzm)?

Also... (I hope I'm not pushing my luck but after I was hacked last year I don't trust my hardware)
could you edit the /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg menu cheatcodes to read this?...

Change the default menu title to "CD (No Flash)" then...

Code: Select all

append initrd=noauto nochanges noeject nohd nomagic norootcopy noswap delay=5 ramsize=72% zram=24% base_only timezone=US/Eastern utc login=guest
Edit "Always Fresh" to read...

Code: Select all

append initrd=noauto nochanges nomagic norootcopy noswap delay=5 ramsize=72% zram=24% base_only timezone=US/Eastern utc login=guest

@n0ctilucient
APorteus-EDE-v17.09.01-x86_64.iso is based on APorteus.
Therefor it is a example of "EDE desktop + PEKWM window manager" ISO.
It is only that.

If you run APorteus-EDE-v17.09.01-x86_64.iso, in the environment you can use reverse tools of APorteus.
[CUI commands]
dISO: decompose ISO
dXZM: decompose XZM module
dINIT: decompose initrd.xz
sep2pkg: group the directory, that is decomposed with dXZM, into package unit.

Please refer to Re: ArchLinux packages for Porteus (Post by neko #36688)

Thanks.

Maybe, it is possible.
"Maybe" reason is that I don't know what "xfeFM" is.
Would you tell me the package name of "xfeFM"?
And Netsurf is already included in the ISO.

Thanks.

Xfe is the "file manager" (ie. "FM" is the acronym) that uses FoX toolkit as a dependency instead of Gtk/Qt.
TkDVD is the ISO burner that uses Tcl/Tk toolkit as a dependency instead of Gtk/Qt.

see...
Fox toolkit
Tk (software)

Yes, it is possible.

1. tkdvd
RPM package "tkdvd" can be gotten from ROZA and be converted.
"TKL" & "TK" dependency packages can be gotten with ArchSPM.

2. netsurf
It is included in "004-bare.xzm" module of ISO.

3. xfe
"xfe" package and "fox" dependency package can be gotten with ArchSPM.

Thanks.

"Have the above mention packages been added to the 004-bare.xzm bundle yet?"

No, they have not.
They will be gotten with new version of "Integrated Simple Package Management tool".
Please refer to ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus (Post by neko #36687)

On the Aporteus running environment,
GUI: "ArchLinux Simple Package Manager command" ---> mkapl --->
TclTkAPL:..........build tcl/tk applications (TkDVD)
xfe:...............build xfe file manager


Thanks.

@n0ctiluceint
Did you read this?

I looked at FLTK and it seems to me better than Fox....

@ neko... many thanks.

Hi wread (aka... mentor) it's good to hear from you.
I heard about the hurricane and hope all is well.

And yes... you are correct. FLTK is lighter and less troublesome than FoX.
(I have encountered much difficulty compiling FXDE)

I'm a big fan of FLTK and I have even spoken to it's creator Bill Spitzak.
He was a CGI expert @ Lucas Film's "Industrial Light And Magic"...
and has worked on many major productions like "Titanic".

In any case... my interest in FoX is purely aesthetic.
It is heavier than FLTK but infinitely lighter than bloated Gtk/Qt.

The NonSequncer project has a more attractive version of FLTK (FLTK + Cairo = NTK?).
However... I'm not sure if it can be used as a replacement in EDE.

see... http://non.tuxfamily.org/wiki/NTK

Perhaps... I should reach out to those projects.

Cheers from... "n0ctilucient"

Hi n0ctilucient!
The hurricanes Irma and María made some damages at the north coastal region of Hispaniola, mostly due to heavy rains. Winds tor quite a few trees down, breaking road communications, but it is been rapidly taken care of.

I made a Porteus module for fltk-1.3.4-2 and I was impressed by the toolkit! I think this version has a Cairo plugin or so, at least the fltk-config function has the option --use-cairo. And FLTK has three different themes; it doesn't have to be so ugly!

If this option really works (Cairo), it would be the same a NTK, of another developer...

I like FLTK because it is c++ plain vanilla, you don't have to learn new languages...c++ is already enough complicated :(

Regads!
