Re: Btrfs for save changes file

Ok, i have extracted intrd, have edited linuxrc adding "modprobe btrfs" at the end of code (so core xmz will load first and command will find the module). to create the new initrd i have used: find . | cpio --create --format='newc' > /mnt/sdb5/linux/tmp/newinit-btrfs and of course set the new entry ...

Re: Btrfs for save changes file

I realized that btrfs kernel module is not loaded with my custom kernel, even if I can use those commands of the btrfs tools and I can also manually mount it. But not at boot run level. root /home/guest # modinfo btrfs filename: /lib/modules/4.5.5-xanmod8-porteus/kernel/fs/btrfs/btrfs.ko license: GP...

Re: Btrfs for save changes file

just for reference
commands used:

Code: Select all

dd if=/dev/zero of=save-bt2.dat bs=1M count=128
mkfs.btrfs save-bt2.dat
could the dd "bs" parameter be a problem?
edit: nope, tested with 64k also

Btrfs for save changes file

I was wondering if a btrfs file system is possible for a changes file. I have formated one to test but it does not seem to work. I am not thinking of any benefit from it right now instead of an ext3/4, just testing it [in nemesis 3.5]

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

An other one: package "pmenu" it seems that there are same systematic(?) or fuzzy(?) file conflicts from the beginning. In this example "pmenu" package seems not installed but the executable is there somehow. pmenu: /usr/bin/pmenu already exist in filesystem pmenu: /usr/bin/pmenu-run already exist i...

Re: unable to install firefox after manjaro-keyring update

Without the log info it is almost impossible to help you. I'm sure there are other ways to save this log for out of virtual os environment use. For example try to mount a flash usb dedicated to vbox and save to it (unmount from native), I have never used vbox on linux but I do this on Windows. You c...

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

There are some options for NAND flash oriented file systems supported by kernel (I had recompiled kernel with this option), one is f2fs (Flash-Friendly File System), F2FS https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/F2FS I might try it in the future. Some smart phones already use it. I really know nothing a...

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

I also noticed that savefile.dat will probably not get unmount correctly during xfxe4 sessions reboot/shutdown. The fs gets dirty often and the first boot fails and OpenRC shows fail messages. After the second boot there is always an ext4 clean operation on save.dat and then everything is back to no...

Re: Difference of changes that happened during a session?

Thanks for your advices. All those methods can be used. find /mnt/live/memory/changes -iname "*" -mmin -10 and changes-time 10 a good option could also be the the use of the "uptime" or "w" command, in order use the time from the beginning of the session if you want # uptime 17:46:23 up 10 min, 0 us...

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

Guess how you run a Linux system flash drive on the most machines. :wink: I agree There is one more, significant but often misunderstood parameter, flash wear leveling. With an ext4 image container on a fat32 flash, system will continue to use journaling, but I guess with less flash wear because al...

Re: Install multiple desktop environments for Nemesis HOWTO

I have seen those errors too. No, do not downgrade pacman, you will not be able to upgrade anything later. Try ls /var/lib/pacman/local/ | grep manjaro-keyring ls /var/lib/pacman/local/ | grep archlinux-keyring and if you find duplicated files, delete the outdated. I think package-query is a package...
