ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

DEEPIN desktop

Deepin might be suspected of having a "backdoor" inside.

Therefore "Deepin desktop" cann't be directly built by "ISO builder".
If you need it, before executing "ISO builder", you need edit the shell script.

After booting APorteus-vNN.NN.NN-i486.iso / APorteus-vNN.NN.NN-x86_64.iso up,
edit "/usr/local/bin/guibuildiso" from a terminal.

@Evan
Thank you for your interest.
I am afraid that my low quality ISO might hurt something.

Thanks.

Although you're totally right, I have to confess that I laughed out loud with it! :ROFL:

Maybe this topic can help you. I used that command to shrink LXQt module size. You just need to keep all applications you want to provide opened at the same time, and then run the command to see all the libraries that are being used, so you can almost safely remove the others (inside /usr/lib64, of course).

Thank you for your help.
It is very interest for me to slim modules up.
I didn't know the command lsof, I will study it.

Thanks.

1. These ISOs are for feeling the taste of "DEEPIN desktop" APorteus.

ISO size: 415/412 M
language: English (locale C)
desktop: DEEPIN
kernel: 32Bit/64Bit 4.11.6
Web browser: slimjet 14.0.16.0 (with chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra 58.0.3029.110-0ubuntu1.1354)

Please refer to http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... 225#p55982


2. The deepin modules size has been reduced down to 37 % (30 %).
APorteus-DEEPIN-v17.06.14-i486/porteus/base: 003-1deepin.xzm,003-2deepin.xzm,003-3deepin.xzm,003-4deepin.xzm,003-z.deepin.xzm
308 M(307,834,880)
---->
APorteus-DEEPIN-v17.06.23-i486/porteus/base: 003-1deepin.xzm,003-2deepin.xzm,003-3deepin.xzm,003-4deepin.xzm,003-z.deepin.xzm
114 M(113,778,688):

003-4deepin.xzm of v17.06.23 is constructed with "none-deepin" application packages (mpv, leafpad etc.,).
exclusing 003-4deepin.xzm size: 93 M(93,028352)


3. The "backdoor" problem
Deepin might be suspected of having a "backdoor" inside.

Therefore "Deepin desktop" cann't be directly built by "ISO builder".
If you need it, before executing "ISO builder", you need edit the shell script.

After booting APorteus-vNN.NN.NN-i486.iso / APorteus-vNN.NN.NN-x86_64.iso up,
edit "/usr/local/bin/guibuildiso" from a terminal.

Code: Select all

% su
# leafpad

307 ## deepin
308 ## <checkbox active="false" space-expand="true" space-fill="true" tooltip-text="300M">
309 ## <label>"deepin"</label>

@Evan, thank you for your warning.


4. "APorteus ISO Builder" are updated to v17.06.23

New "ISO builder" include "DEEPIN desktop".
But it doesn't appear in desktop menu without the script edit.
(refer to item 3)

Please refer to http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... c3c#p36689


Thanks.

@fulalas
Thank you for your interest.
The old big size ISO running was analyzed by "lsof" command that you introduced to me.
It was usefull to get the information, "what packages are needed".
Thank you for your help.

I will resume analyzing the "Kernel Builder" issue which you pointed out.

Thanks.

Oh, I see. I'm glad I could help you on that. :)

BTW, I gave it a try and at least inside VirtualBox if I click on the settings (small gear icon), the menu at right appears and disappears very quickly so I can't actually use it. Do you know why?

Also, maybe it would be great if you include a task manager (lxtask is nice because it's light).

@fulalas
Thank you for your quick testing report.

1. "Control Center" window disappears soon
I will search by the key "deepin control center",
and then report the result (after "Kernel Builder").

2. "lxtask"
It was added.
Next sample that will be uploaded will include "lxtask".


Thanks.

"Archlinux rolling-release problem"
lxterminal package was updated from 0.3.0-1 to 0.3.0-2.
This update causes the following usage to be illegal result.

[in shell script]
------------------
lxterminal --command="buildiso $MSGBISO locale=\"$MSGLANG\" desktop=$DESKTOPS web=$BROWSERS im=$IMETHOD"
------------------

Many tools in APorteus use lxterminal in a shell script to display the progress of programe.
Therefor this update should be avoided by using old version 0.3.0-1.

[How to avoid]
== Next release ==
The most recent lxterminal package is included in 002-xorg.xzm.
old version 0.3.0-1 will be included in 002-z.xorg.xzm.
The most recent version will be overwritten with old version.

== Patch ==
Please activate patch module from XTERM terminal.

@beny
Thank you for your information.
I didn't know "debtap".
So, I wrote a "deb2dir" shell script.
I will study the debtap.

Thanks.
