Not really, I am quite happy with how manjaro works. The usefulness and uniqueness of a modularized system is very neat though.

Re: Information

Ah I see. My plan is a little different. I want to create a system to convert the packages. I do not particularily like how the /changes stuff works. I have had some buggy issues with it in the past. But the first step is to get a working prototype with manjaro packages. I tried switching out the ma...

Hello, I plan on trying to make a manjaro/porteus mix. Although a little different than your arch/porteus mix. I am wondering where you started to get the packages ported and working with porteus?

Re: "Must have apps" - 64bit official repo requests

I find myself getting a little restless these days and would really like Play on Linux to work. I cannot seem to get past a few errors. It would be much appreciated if Play on Linux would be added to the repository. It is the most user friendly free windows emulator available and It is definitely a ...

You might encounter problem with your games" Directly after this error message this message was shown in the terminal: [Check_OpenGL] Message: 64bits direct rendering is enabled The next error is ...

Re: Neater Package Management

Uncommented and unfinished but this was the code thus far. #!/bin/bash storage=$(grep -A1 "STORAGE:" /etc/ppm/porteus.conf | tail -1); name=$(ls $storage/"$1"*); ldd $(lsxzm "$name") 2>/dev/null | grep '=>'; The plan afterwards was to finish the parse and then do a lsxzm of each module within the mo...

Re: Neater Package Management

I have hit a snag on a portion of parsing, I know how to do this action in C++ however that is not the preferred method, I want to learn more about how to do things in linux rather than the stuff I learned in College. I am trying to use sed and I have managed to get the output to become equal to run...

Re: Gnome 3

@beny I did add the appropriate places to the PATH, or I believe I did at the time. Ill have to double check into that. Thanks for the hint.

Re: Neater Package Management

@bigbass I am working on writing a bash script that will tell you of the dependencies of packages, not libraries. This is what I have thus far, not too much but I just started it. #!/bin/bash #gain storage location from /etc/ppm/porteus.conf storage=$(grep -A1 "STORAGE:" /etc/ppm/porteus.conf | tail...

Re: Neater Package Management

I see, that works well for deactivation, possibly a rmxzm script that will search the dependencies and remove them, or a xzmdeps that will simply print the deps out in a way that you could do rm `xzmdeps name.xzm` I personally cannot seem to get ldd to work, the man does not specify the type of file...

Re: Neater Package Management

well in the current system when I run ls /mnt/live/porteus/modules I get a listing of everything installed. If I wanted to only remove gparted and its dependencies, finding whether everything is orphaned or not. Doing this via command line does not seem like a very neat solution since I currently ha...

Re: gparted > KDE Partition Manager

after doing a close examination I do not really see much difference, probably just perception and being more used to gparted lol.
