ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

Neko, TM (Slax) has replaced rc0.d rc6.d and rcS.d files in /etc/systemd. These new scripts along with the shutdown script inside initrfs, are helping a systemd driven Debian offshoot, a very clean shutdown.

Sorry for persisting with this, I would like to see Aporteus, doing the clean shutdown. I use your Budgie ,August 2017 release, a few times a week. Even , I made the new Kernel, yesterday with Aporteus set up.

In Budgie-64, I copy changes folder from memory, make a module and use. Everything fine except , Pulse volume setting, get a 'x' mark over the icon and is stuck. Any reason?

In addition to @raja feedback, I've found that Nautilus is not showing image previews in Aporteus Budgie, while Openbox (pcmanfm) , XFCE (thunar) are doing well.

Also I think something is missing with python setup. I have several packages using python2 an python3, but they refuse to work (in normal Porteus this is not happening). Maybe python environment is not fully set. I've tried to set python path variable, but I was unsuccessful (modules missing??).

Any help?

Thanks

@neko

I've tried to build Aporteus Deepin. I get to the login window, but not to the desktop. I've seen there are two login managers: lightdm and lxdm Which config file must I modify to solve it?

Thanks

Which config file must I modify to solve it?

It is "lxdm".

Neko,

1) you may also add "intel-ucode.img"*, file in /boot/syslinux folder.Edit intrd=/boot/syslinux/intel-ucode.img /boot/syslinux/intrd.xz .

Kernel loads the update at boot 0.0 in all distributions, I use. Brokenman suggested, compile of slack build on this as a "cpio" file is not required.

2)Arch/Debian, for some reasons want us to use libnput driver. In Porteus 4.0 rc new-cinnamon, Touchpad functions perfectly with all needed gestures.

In Aporteus, I have to modify 70-synaptics.conf, to add tap functions.

@raja
Thank you very much for your useful suggestion.

1.microcode
I hesitate to fix "the Meltdown and Spectre attacks" by updating BIOS.
I am waiting for the more stable situation.

2.Touchpad
It is very useful information for touchpad users.


Thanks.

nekosan,

In 32/64 bit Kernels from you, the following config informations under 'Performance Monitoring' are missing.
CONFIG_MICROCODE=y
CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL=y
CONFIG_MICROCODE_AMD=y
CONFIG_MICROCODE_OLD_INTERFACE=y
That virtually prevents any update, as Kernel does not load the update tool.

In 32/64 bit Kernels I use, I always get,
[ 0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x80, date = 2018-01-04
[ 2.636142] microcode: sig=0x806e9, pf=0x80, revision=0x80
[ 2.636310] microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.01 <tigran@aivazian.fsnet.co.uk>, Peter Oruba
This along with PTI, covers major loopholes.

Your 'retpoline' measure may involve the compiler(gcc 7.2).

Neko, Can you please tell me, where is the reference to FOLDER/DIRECTORY "porteus" in the initrd? I didn't find any reference in linuxrc or init_conf. Or is that part of compiled 'init' script!

I would like your offering to search for 'sign file in "aporteus" folder/directory. That would help aporteus and porteus to coexist in same partition.

Now, I find another by name nemisis, arch based porteus. What is the difference you notice, from your offering, apart from systemd?

One more doubt! If I run, Grub2.2 beta, without a cfg file, it boots to a grub prompt. When I point to a 'vmlinuz image file location with a 'boot' command, it loads initrd, locates the folder in one of the partitions, finds the sign file and makes a normal boot.

I am surprised. How does that happen?

@raja

1. 'where is the reference to FOLDER/DIRECTORY "porteus" in the initrd?'
It is the function "findDatabase()" in the shell file
"APorteus-MULT-v18.01.11-x86_64.iso@/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz@/usr/share/systemd/functions".


2. 'That would help aporteus and porteus to coexist in same partition.'
APorteus and Porteus can be set in the different directories of the same partition.
If kernel version of APorteus is same as one of Porteus,
the vmlinuz of 'APorteus or Porteus' can be used for 'Aporteus and Porteus'.
But the initrd.xz of 'APorteus' is used only for 'APorteus'.
And the initrd.xz of 'Porteus' is used only for 'Porteus'.


3. 'What is the difference you notice, from your offering, apart from systemd?'
(1) package management tool
Nemisis: modified Pacman (Arch original package management tool)
APorteus: Arch SPM (Arch Simple Package Management tool)

(2) Basic modues
The constructed packages of basic modules (001,002,003) are differ each other.

(3) Distribution method.
Nemisis: offering directly ISO. (not offering locale modules)
APorteus: offering ISO generater ISO. (generating depend on locale)

(4) Completeness
Nemisis: enough good level
APorteus: alpha (testing) level (need user's efforts)


4. 'Grub2.2 beta'
point to a 'vmlinuz image file location with a 'boot' command,
---->
it loads initrd,
locates the folder in one of the partitions,
finds the sign file and makes a normal boot.

Excuse me that I don't know 'Grub2.2 beta' at all.
But if only pointing vmlinuz makes 'Grub2.2 beta' know the location of initrd.xz,
it can be understood.


5. How to analyze initrd.xz.
