have I had a brain fade?

I thought I could use xzm2dir to unpack a module but had to use unsquashfs

Code: Select all

ls -al 001*
-rw-r--r-- 1 guest guest 82567168 Jan  6 05:07 001-core.xzm

xzm2dir 001-core.xzm 
Could not open 001-core.xzm, because No such file or directory

guest /tmp $ unsquashfs 001-core.xzm 
Parallel unsquashfs: Using 4 processors
14139 inodes (13761 blocks) to write

@brokenman

separate post I am just starting to look on v 3.5 at newroot

Used unsquashfs previous post to unpack 001-core

Code: Select all

root /tmp/squashfs-root # newroot .
grep: /etc/porteus.d/login: No such file or directory
root / # pwd
/

exit
exit
root /tmp/squashfs-root # find / -name login

/etc/pam.d/login
/etc/porteus.d/login
/usr/bin/login
/tmp/squashfs-root/etc/pam.d/login
/tmp/squashfs-root/usr/bin/login
AFAIK or FWIW 001-core should have /etc/porteus.d/login but does not appear to?

Hello,

I'am following with interest the development of Nemesis, and I appreciate a lot that it is being provided with LXDE instead of heavier DE's. I am trying to adapt Nemesis 3.5 to my needs as I did before with classic Porteus. I found a problem that probably cannot be properly qualified as a bug, and could simply be a consequence on design changes. The problem arrises with the coexistence of 32bit programs and libraries on the 64bit version of Nemesis. I believe the trouble is due to /lib64 and /usr/lib64 directories being linked to /lib and /usr/lib, so there are no separate directories for 32bit and 64bit libraries.

Is there any (simple) fix or workaround?
Would it be possible to maintain separate lib directories as with previous versions?

Regards, and thank for all this useful stuff.

Ricardo.

That xzm2dir error is because you need to create a directory for it to unpack to....unsquashfs creates it's own.

As in 'xzm2dir 001-core.xzm [whatever directory]'

What problem are you having?

I doubt that separate directories for /lib and /usr/lib are possible under Arch, (Nemesis) though I believe it was this way in the past. I've run into this too with kernel modules. but no problems with libs.

I have no idea why Arch is doing it this way, I consider it slightly goofy.

I was not talking about separate /lib and /usr/lib, but separate /lib and /lib64, and separate /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 so that 32-bit libraries go to /lib and /usr/lib, and 64-bit libraries to /lib64 and /usr/lib64.

Anyway, what I wish is being able to use of 32-bit packages on a 64-bit system.

Thanks.

But to separate /lib or /lib64 from /usr as it is now, I think will lead to problems with any programs set up in the Arch style.

I'm on a 32 bit, but I thought you could run 32 bit on a 64 bit system using multilibs. Is that not the idea behind /lib64?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Multilib
A 64-bit installation of Arch Linux with multilib enabled follows a directory structure similar to Debian. The 32-bit compatible libraries are located under /usr/lib32/, and the native 64-bit libraries under /usr/lib/.

regarding xzm2dir thanks for confirming I did have a brain fade

possible bloat not a bug

There is a dir called /etc/udev/hwdb.d with numerous files that start with contents
# This file is part of systemd.

Hi everyone, let me say thank you for developing Porteus at first.

I use for testing lxde version live USB (2GB) with two partititions fat32 for base system and ext3 for saving changes, that works great for me.
So far I found unexpected behaviour of Abiword (latest available version from pacman repository), there is some kind of blinking when You start writing the text.
Hardware - Toshiba Portege Z930.

I have never posted any bug here so hopefully the information will help you to fix the issue.

Thanks again

ingosia

welcome to Porteus
there is some kind of blinking
What is the name of your video card please as just doing a search shows there is one for ATI/catalyst cards and then the rest of us

done as root

Code: Select all

pman -S abiword
resolving dependencies...
:: There are 2 providers available for libcl:
:: Repository extra
   1) ocl-icd  2) opencl-catalyst
2) Have you seen my https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=5432

If you resolve glxgears to working you should be better?

@ aus9, thank You for help.
It is Intel, not ATi one. Display is LED one. These are the results from todays testing...

Code: Select all

lspci -v

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: Toshiba America Info Systems Device 0004
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 26
	Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
	Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
	I/O ports at 2000 [size=64]
	Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel driver in use: i915
	Kernel modules: i915
glxgears works, I also reinstalled Abiword and resolved conflicting packages as You described in tutorial.
No improvement fo far.
Maybe I will add, I do not use pman but pacman, I have ext3 partition available, I do not need to make modules.

What can I do now?

Files are copied from /mnt/sdXy/config to /etc/porteus.d during boot. This is done from inside initrd.
there is some kind of blinking when You start writing the text.
Sorry, this is not very clear to me. What exactly is blinking? The entire screen? The cursor? Do you feel it is something to do with the video card? Flickering?
