finding my way back with nemesis: an Alzheimer's journal

Post#1 by francois » 01 Aug 2018, 01:15

It has been sometime that I worked with nemesis. My brain seems to have some holes. I will us this thread to fill the missing information on various topics. So this should be an organized summary of my late knowledge to get nemesis working out. Here are a few topics where the knowledge is missing:

1.0 Starting nemesis.
1.111 Starting nemesis frugal install (hdd install) with grub2 installed on debian partition:
Work in progress:
grub2 menu entry (bis)
1.112 Updating grub on debian installation from nemesis:

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
1.12 Installing grub2 with blaze strategy from porteus: ***find the link***
1.2 setup-pman to update database

Code: Select all

setup-pman
2.0 Installing additional packages.
Just try porteus packages some of them might work directly under nemesis. this is the case for libre-office B)
2.1 Error message of the kind: Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Code: Select all

[guest@porteus ~]$ sudo pman -S midori  
[sudo] password for guest:

 Multiple packages were detected. 

Would you like to merge them into one module? [y/n]
Solution:

2.2 Build modules with pacman -Uddr and mksquashfs commands.
This is stifiling or ncmprhnsbl solution to build modules without pman, at least for the most fundamental one to your installation:
Porteus/Arch aka Sensei (Porteus w/pacman package manager)
Example to build gimp.

3.0 The printing and scanning solution: installing scanner for brother printer with debtap which needs base-devel and yaourt openrc the system behind nemesis: printing as an example

Do not forget to start the avahi-daemon and cups.
viewtopic.php?f=137&t=6909

Code: Select all

rc-update add avahi-daemon default
rc-service cupsd start
rc-update add cupsd default
4.0 Installing an automatic package installer: I like octopi Octopi package manager gui front-end: nemesis-artix

libxss-1.2.2-x86_64-3.xzm includes the google-chrome dependency libraries (libXss.so libXss.so.1 libXss.so.1.0.0).
i don't think nekos module (from aporteus) has packages that pacman tracks..(hence the 'exists in filesystem' messages)
so in this case, just deactivating that module before pman'ing would have worked.

libxss-1.2.2-x86_64-3 was obtained by APorteus tool, not pacman.
Therefor this libxss-1.2.2-x86_64-3 is out of the control of pacman.
If pacman will be used, delete (deactivate) this libxss-1.2.2-x86_64-3 and obtain one by packman.

Excuse me, that I don't know how to use pacman well.

Thanks.

Will trading your xfce4 module be enough to work in root mode?

Nemesis is really fast on my old dell desktop.

Thanks.

nekos' iso is made from my base modules(including xfce4) with chrome and libxss added as modules in the module folder, so such a trade will accomplish nothing :) note that nekos' iso is not currently up to date with my updated modules(which i'm due to update again, probly next week)
the login= cheatcode is not functional
so either:
boot to text mode(i think that works? maybe not..) login to root then startx
or
if you want to autologin to root> edit /etc/conf.d/agetty.tty1 > change line 8: agetty_options="--autologin=guest" to root and
copy bash_profile from /home/guest to /root
an idea might be to create a module(say called root.xzm) with those files/settings and put it in optional and use cheatcode load=root

Good or just put these files in rootcopy.

Thanks.

@francois & @ncmprhnsbl
I studied
/etc/rc.d/rc.4 of 003-xfce.xzm of Porteus 4.0
and
/etc/init.d/prelogin of 001-core-20180706.xzm of nemesis.

Then I understood that ncmprhnsbl's answer is the best.
I too made xfce-root-home.xzm.

agetty.tty1

to rootcopy with necessary folders worked great.

With the chrismas holiday coming. This will be an opportunity to work some time on nemesis, porteus and portubuntu. :happy62:

Added in the first link the solution for the scanner, compatibility with porteus (slackware modules).

@ncmprhnsbl:
I have been running with same nemesis since last march. But not used it for many months. Chromium works fine. What can I do to keep the same setting up-to-date?

Thanks.

Yes I do, but I try to do without it. For example, I build modules with the -Uddr method (2.2 Build modules with pacman -Uddr and mksquashfs commands) in first post.
