USM Module Reserve: Bundle Contributions

In the absence of indication by brokenman of where to place download links, let's start the ball rolling here. :)

Topic title phrased so, so as to encourage any one to contribute a module made with usm. That one should strictly adhere to the title is, I suppose, a matter of discretion. ;)

brokenman wrote:Regarding the naming convention. You can take a look by typing into a root console (on porteus v3.2): bundles


brokenman wrote:- Naming should follow the naming convention here but replace bundle with your name/tag


Naming convention seems to be (in keeping with Slackware format of app-version-arch-tag.) extended to bundles: app-version-arch-de-numbundle.xzm, where num is numeric portion of main package tag, and de is one of cinnamon, kde5, mate, xfce4, lxde, and alldesktops.

So then presume, as example, conky bundles to be named so: conky-1.9.0-i486-kde5-1bp1.xzm & conky-1.9.0-x86_64-cinnamon-2bp1.xzm.

Hope I've got it right. :roll:

Waiting for contributions! :)

There are testers out here. :wink:

CONKY

Due to pressure of time done a compromise, and tested bundles on the lightest 'official' desktops: xfce (32 bit) & lxde (64 bit). Then there is a good chance they will work on any desktop, once they are able to work on the lightest desktop of their architecture category.

  • 32 Bit
    • conky-1.9.0-i486-xfce4-1OLD1.xzm (Courtesy of OLD72 Conky)
    • Test Environment (/var/log/porteus-livedbg)
      Code: Select all
      # Modules activated during boot time:
      /memory/copy2ram/000-kernel.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/001-core.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/002-xorg.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/003-xfce4.xzm
  • 64 Bit
    • conky-1.10.6-x86_64-lxde-1bp1.xzm
    • Test Environment (/var/log/porteus-livedbg)
      Code: Select all
      # Modules activated during boot time:
      /memory/copy2ram/000-kernel.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/001-core.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/002-xorg.xzm
      /memory/copy2ram/003-lxde.xzm
HOWTO

Testing on a Different Desktop (Conventional Porteus Usage)
  1. Extract 003-<desktop>.xzm from ISO File (Script available: Script Extracting Desktop Module Offline/Online from ISO File)
    • Simplest Way to Use Script: at the Code Block holding the Script:
      SELECT ALL > Ctl+C > Paste into a Terminal in Order to Use Shell Functions of Script
      • Root Terminal if ISO in Mirror Directory
        Extract to Directory of Choice
        Code: Select all
        x3get  <Desktop>  [<Target Directory>] 
        Example
        Code: Select all
        root@porteus:/home/guest# x3get xfce4
        file name:      Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-i586.iso
        host name:      mirrors.dotsrc.org
        port number:    80
        protocol:       http
        request path:   /porteus/i586/Porteus-v3.2.2/Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-i586.iso
        auth data:      (null)
        file size:      251113472
        -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 45M Dec 24 00:14 ./003-xfce4.xzm

      • Any Terminal if ISO in Local Filesystem
        Extract 003 Module
        Code: Select all
        x3  <Desktop>  /Path/to/<ISO File>  [<Target Directory>]
        Example
        Code: Select all
        guest@porteus:~$     x3get
        Usage: <Desktop>  [<Target Directory>]
        guest@porteus:~$ x3
        Usage: <Desktop>  /Path/to/<ISO File>  [<Target Directory>]
        guest@porteus:~$ x3  $r/i586/Porteus-KDE-v3.2.2-i586.iso  /tmp  # DE Omitted!
        Desktop must be one of:
        xfce
        cinnamon
        mate
        kde
        guest@porteus:~$ x3 kde  $r/i586/Porteus-KDE-v3.2.2-i586.iso  /tmp
        -rw-r--r-- 1 guest users 225M Dec 24 00:19 /tmp/003-kde5.xzm
    • Normally Extracting to /porteus/optiomal Folder
      • Mirror
        Code: Select all
        x3get  <Desktop>  /mnt/sdXy/porteus/optional
      • Local
        Code: Select all
        x3  <Desktop>  /Path/to/<ISO File>  /mnt/sdXy/porteus/optional]
  2. Reload with Boot Parameter (cheatcode) Combination: 'noload=<current de> load=<test de>' in file porteus.cfg. Example: Appending to porteus.cfg
    Code: Select all
    noload=cinn  load=lxde
    where noload filters out matching modules from /porteus/{base,modules,optional} folders, and load= selects modules from /porteus/optional folder. (More detailed explanation under Module Processing Sequence)

A brief description of what the bundle does would help entice people to try it.

^ Twould be nice, but in the normal scheme of things one already knows what one is searching for. IMHO this should be even more so the case when modules are offered in the i486/x86_64 Modules Section. A brief description for a bundle would be good if one can then search thru these for a required functionality.

^Let me rephrase, if you want people to test your bundles on other systems so you know they work, it would be helpful to mention what the bundle does or is used for. Since I have never searched for conky I have no idea what it does and assume it is some kind of desktop.

^ Think talking at cross purposes here. Thought the idea was that the bundle maker is the tester. If time permits bundle can be tested on all desktops, and will then be: -all-<tag>.xzm, otherwise -<desktop>-<tag>.xzm.
