cheatcodes: utc timezone=country/city , work no prob.
so... i've taken the path of loading the base modules(00,01,02) and building a gui from scratch..
trying to stay minimal, using openbox, spacefm-gtk2, udevil, tint2, lxterminal, etc..
avoiding gtk3, python, big stuff etc(probably a little pointless)
so no network gui so far...which is ok..(seems to be choice between python and gtk3)
first i tried installing yaourt(then packer) and building spacefm-gtk2, but some dev tools seemed to be missing..
so i just ended up using makexzm on official packages, using tuxcmd as an interim file manager(almost converted me)
this was a bit haphazard and i ended up with a bunch of xzms,
which i then extracted them to a single (fake root)directory.
>>> squash-root(any name can be specified) -f forces extraction to an existing dir.
then removed some stuff(man pages, doc, extra themes) and added configs.
i keep this uncompressed dir to tweak and install packages i find missing(forgot) as i test.
or packages built from AUR with my full arch install.(eg spacefm-gtk2)
ie put pkg.tar.xz(s) in /var/cache/pacman/pkg
pacman -Uddr /path/to/fakeroot /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*pkg.tar.xz
also to test a package(s) first, before commiting to my module:
pacman -Ud /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*pkg.tar.xz(if from AUR) or simply pacman -S package
then i made a firefox module by :
1 pacman -S firefox
2 no to install
3 this gives a list of deps + versions
4 searched my (installed)arch package cache
5 copied them to sensei cache and test installed
6 copied them to a dir and did arch2xzm
7 would be extract, strip and configure. recompress.(simpler to pacman -Uddr **)
then a media module with mpv and moc, using your original instructions..
hmm... no sound... alsa-utils package containing alsamixer and amixer fixed that(unmute)
was not getting my wacom tablet working correctly..usually works ootb...
installed the driver to 003xorg..
wacom kernel module loads according to lsmod ..
worked out needed to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
line43--- Option "AutoAddDevices" "true" -->was "false"
seem to need to 'pacman -Sy' twice because sensei repo never works first go
when using makexzm, if there is some temporary network problem, it carries on regardless,
leaving failed downloads out of module.
added cpupower for frequency scaling,
but its not necessary because porteus kernel has this already enabled.(laptop-mode-tools)?
what i would like is an 'activate' script, to load/unload modules on the fly.
need to understand the make/mounting loops part, i expect.
athough its quite easy to keep packages and their deps, and copy them to cache and install..or -Ud from where-ever
considering arch packages, being xz compressed are generally smaller than a module made from them
sorry for long post
