Nemesis artix based: a few problems

1.0 Unable to sync time with ntp according to:

What could be the solution?
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/OpenNTPD

2.0 Unable to get the brother scanner recognized:

Code: Select all

[porteus print]# brsaneconfig4 -q | grep scanner
  0 scanner             "MFC-7860DW"        I:192.168.0.107
 [porteus ~]# scanimage -L
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname TOSHIBA Web Camera - HD virtual device
[porteus ~]# 
 
Any solution?
Maybe here:

Updating grub2 thru xubuntu installation:
nemesis is called thru grub2 on my installation. Instead of rebooting in xubuntu on sda1 to update grub after a change in mnt/sda1/etc/grub.d/40_custom in which nemesis is called in root mode (just copy paste the six lines tied by &&):

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/chroot  &&
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/chroot &&
mount --bind /dev /mnt/chroot/dev &&
mount --bind /proc /mnt/chroot/proc &&
mount --bind /sys /mnt/chroot/sys &&
chroot /mnt/chroot
Updating grub:

Code: Select all

update-grub
Exiting:

Code: Select all

 exit &&
umount /mnt/chroot/dev  && 
umount /mnt/chroot/proc &&
umount /mnt/chroot/sys 
Carpe diem.

this is (one example of) where the arch wiki is unhelpful for anyone not using systemd (any reference to systemctl is a clue)
the gentoo wiki is more openrc friendly:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Ntp#ntpdate
for a one off:
$ sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org
or
$ sudo ntpd -gq
and then if you want to sync the hardware clock
$ sudo hwclock -w
there is also a ntpd openrc service that could be enabled so that it runs at startup:
$ sudo rc-update add ntp-client default

re: scanner
looks like the driver needs to be built(which is problematic without a functioning devel.xzm)

re: chroot
checkout arch-chroot: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ch ... rch-chroot

[porteus guest]# pacaur -Ss brscan4
aur/brscan4 0.4.4_3-1 (81, 3.03)
    SANE drivers from Brother for brscan4 compatible models
though, to build it, you'll need the development packages(with headers) and probably kernel headers..

I have achieved to install brscan thru AUR, all was needed was base-devel and following the following strategies:

What is needed for what you call the devel module?
kernel headers or crippled source, ...

Certainly, he is a part of our DEV team for good reason. I really love the ease of use of Nemesis.

yeah i've seen this sometimes , some time works sometimes doesn't, no ideas why .. yet..
it's worth remembering that pman installs by default, so if you are using a changes folder(i don't), it installs there..

thanks for the vote of confidence :)
i started this (updating project) with doubts about its feasibility, but even with some significent changes upstream, it keeps booting..

Is there a way to get this command working?
[porteus ~]# su -c chromium guest
No protocol specified

(chromium:3959): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
[porteus ~]#
Thanks
