Take all your time. We are just having fun, though this is serious stuff. :wink:

Going to bed now as I work early tomorrow morning. :twisted:

guys....what about mc?

but.. what Blaze is getting at, is to save the script(in gui) to somewhere conveniant like / (in a module if need be or rootcopy) ,
make it executable: chmod +x script.sh
then when you boot into text mode , just run the script: sh script.sh so no copy/paste/ in console

as well there are some problems with the list:

Code: Select all

error: target not found: cower
error: target not found: eudev-systemdcompat
error: target not found: ipw2100
error: target not found: ipw2200
:: There are 2 providers available for libdbus:
:: Repository core
   1) dbus  2) dbus-x11
error: target not found: ntfs-3g-fuse
error: target not found: pacaur


:: Replace eudev-systemdcompat with community/eudev-systemd? [Y/n] y
:: Replace eudev-systemdcompat with community/libeudev-systemd? [Y/n] y
:: Replace libdbus with core/dbus? [Y/n] y
heres a revised list: (not sure about the dbus and eudev-systemd stuff, might soon find out)

Is this a script or not? If it is then I can run it in text node and that would be great.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

@ncmprhnsbl:
So:

Code: Select all

root /home/guest # pacman -S <list of packages>
and then

Code: Select all

dir2xzm mnt/live/memory/changes/ 001-core.xzm
You do that from X environment?

yes, this:

unsquashfs 001-core.xzm
which gives folder squashfs-root (xzm2dir could be used but i forgot how)
then

Code: Select all

pacman -Sy
to update the database(actually did -Syu first which got the keyrings update first, but didnt go ahead with the whole upgrade)
then

Code: Select all

pacman -Sw <list of packages>
which downloads packages to cache (but doesnt install anything)
then

Code: Select all

pacman -Uddr /path/to/squashfs-root /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.pkg.tar.xz
i had to copy the /var/lib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION from the live system to squashfs-root first(it complains if i dont)
then strip some stuff(docs locales etc)(got the size to 98 mb (original=78 mb))
then

Code: Select all

dir2xzm /path/to/squashfs-root 001-core-1.xzm
some further research suggests dbus-x11 might be better than dbus (replaces libdbus)

No, because I did not think about this question. And list of 001 posted by you (not by me) :)

Will Blaze I use your script and it work great but when I replace it with the old 001-core.xzm then I rebooted and it error out and didn't boot up. The new 001-core.xzm was 441.6 M. My question do I need to do something else? I'm not what the error was.
Update:
I put back the old 001-core.xzm and rename the new to 001-update-core.xzm then it works. This is just let you know.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

twin (console window manager) and mc solutions with mouse cursor in console mode (out of X environment) with jssouza collaboration. :)

This will save us great pain. :twisted:

@ncmprhnsbl:
For 001-core.xzm 98 mb (original=78 mb) is more than respectable.

@all:
So the only receipe missing is for the 000-kernel.xzm module.

Could it be just to xzm2dir 000-kernel.xzm of nemesis and simply replacing /64bit_nemesis/porteus/base/000-kernel/usr/lib/modules/4.3.3-porteus/ by /64bit_v32/porteus/base/000-kernel/lib/modules/4.8.11-porteus/? And then dir2xzm?

From what I understand the upgrade does not change the kernel version:
/lib/modules/4.3.3-porteus/
and

Code: Select all

root ~ # uname -a
Linux porteus 4.3.3-porteus #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 15 21:30:52 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If you replace /lib/modules/4.3.3-porteus then you will also need to replace /lib/firmware and vmlinuz from the same. These all work as one. If you don't you will probably boot into a screen where your mouse/keyboard don't work.

Presumably, need to compare a trees of these modules (001-core.xzm, 001-update-core.xzm) via application tree

Code: Select all

# Arch Linux
pacman -S tree

# Slackware
usm -g tree
then

Code: Select all

xzm2dir 001-core.xzm 001-core
xzm2dir 001-update-core.xzm 001-update-core
cd 001-core
tree
cd ..
cd 001-update-core
tree
Probably, 001-update-core is having some missing configs + unnecessary trash which can be removed from 001-update-core (need a human eye for checking both modules).

I think updating of Nemesis is not simple thing...

To do what I need or do, Nemesis need to be a full install. In Slackware it is easy all you need to upgrade the files inside 001-core.xzm. Here is how to do it.

Code: Select all

xzm2dir 001-core.xzm /tmp/unpacked
ROOT=/tmp/unpacked upgradepkg gimp
dir2xzm /tmp/unpacked /tmp/new-001-core.xzm
Slackware is so easy to upgrade and work with.
