[Solved] isohybrid : command not found in Porteus 3.0

Post#1 by jmheneman » 31 Mar 2014, 01:48

(Using Porteus LXDE with Chrome)

isohybrid does not seem to be present in the distribution.

After a usm -u all, nothing is found with usm -s isohybrid or usm -k isohybrid

Code: Select all

#usm -k isohybrid
Nothing found for: isohybrid
#usm -s isohybrid
awk: fatal: cannot open file `/var/usm/sbo/SLACKBUILDS.TXT' for reading (No such file or directory)
Nothing found for isohybrid
Is the cannot open file message normal?
(Meanwhile, I am using RipLinux 13.7 to create an isohybrid (with success)).

Thanks for the help!

isohybrid is a part of syslinux package in Slackware.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

1- Thanks!
That will permit me to make an isohybrid for desktop edition (not the kiosk edition) to quickly test it with a USB key with dd.

2- I am still intrigued with the message from usm :

Code: Select all

#usm -s isohybrid
awk: fatal: cannot open file `/var/usm/sbo/SLACKBUILDS.TXT' for reading (No such file or directory)
Nothing found for isohybrid
Q: Is this normal?

3- I just found out that http://packages.slackware.com/ can answer this by selecting content search...
Q: but how I look thru not only slackware, but slacky, ponce, alien, etc.?

Thanks for your patience!

Problems related to usm have usually more chances to be adressed in the post on usm, see:

As slaxmax says, you need to update SBo to get it to search. This is a bug that will be fixed in next release. USM in fact searches all the slackware repos you mentioned, and as a last resort if nothing is found it searches SBo and offers to build it from source code. Please see fanthom's comment above if you want isohybrid as even after searching ALL the repos for the package isohybrid you will still find nothing.
