It should work the same as standard porteus in this respect. Once booted can you give the output of:

echo $BOOTDEV
ls /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants
ls /mnt/sda1/64bit_v31_nemesis

Thanks.

Whether in always fresh or changes= mode I get:

echo $BOOTDEV:
/mnt/sda1

ls /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants
ls: cannot access ... : No such file or directory

ls /mnt/sda1/64bit_v31_nemesis
boot changes porteus

Something wrong.
ls /mnt/sda1/64bit_v31_nemesis should show:
boot config EFI porteus USB_INSTALLATION.txt

Also /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants should contain some links such as: systemd-networkd.service and machines.target
Did you use the build script and then generate an ISO?

EDIT:
I will need to make a change to have some scripts working from a subfolder. Thanks for catching that early.
Francois I've updated the scripts for installation to a subfolder. I will write a quick howto for git now.

yaourt is one way and stifiling has makexzm that does this...
these wrappers main function is to search AUR,download snapshot and makepkg does the rest:

Hello blaze:
Now use pman:

Code: Select all

setup-pman
Then install xorg with pman:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg
Then install xfce4 and xfce4 goodies:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xfce
To start xfce4:

Code: Select all

startxfc34
Install other packages thru pman or pacman, if you want them module converted or not. Install webbrower and see if video and sounds works fine.

pman stores modules of packages into /tmp. Move these modules into the /porteus/modules (nemesis instead of porteus) folder to have them at next reboot. The poweroff.

Brokenman:
https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=5066
I am interested in 001-core.xzm right now. Any improvements or additions that you think would be good. I plan on implementing a firstrun wizard where users can choose keyboard layout, locales etc.
The current scripts are in /usr/local


Brokenman will come with specific requests. But he will need some translators for the different languages.

Post#22 by brokenman » 08 Oct 2015, 00:46

That should be: setup-pman

From there you can use:
pman -Si packagename (gets info on packagename)
pman -S packagename (installs packagename)

CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET:
1.0

Code: Select all

systemctl start dhcpcd
OR
2.0 If it does not work use dhcpcd <link> :
The case of a wired connection: on my computer.
root@nemesis:/mnt/sda5/34bit_v31/porteus# ip link
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: epn3s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000
link/ether e8:e0:b7:39:9d:62 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
root@nemesis:/mnt/sda5/34bit_v31/porteus#
root@nemesis:~# dhcpcd epn3s0
AND
3.0 and to have dhcpcd enp3s0 at bootup automatically, using systemd to have the connection at bootup automatically (given that you are in persistence mode, i.e. changes= ):
From the above example:
root@nemesis:~# systemctl start dhcpcd@epn3s0.service

or edit the file in iso/config/network and add your network preferences.

SYNCHRONIZING THE ARCH LINUX DATABASE:
PMAN (pman or pacman module wrapper):

Code: Select all

setup-pman

Also looks like an older version by the console output (archilles). Update from latest git. Also uncomment Device=wired

@blaze:
For one reason or another if you use pman to build the modules for xorg, it will not work properly at reboot. Brokenman is not there yet.

I will start a thread to install xorg and xfce. But for now the modules provided by pman are not enough. You will need to use persistence mode (changes=). This will permit those who want to play with pacman and nemesis and familiarize themselves with the package manager and documentation.

Yes. I recommend making a copy of the git tree if you want to make any local changes. Keep the original git tree clean so you can pull the latest updates. Tonight I will make a few changes that remove some directories in order to update from /usr/share/porteus to /usar/share/nemesis
