Stripping nemesis to bare minimum and rebuilding with pman

Post#1 by francois » 12 Dec 2016, 16:34

Stripping nemesis to bare minimum upgrading and rebuilding with pman is feasible from command line.
- start with 000-kernel.xzm 001-core.xzm
- upgrade with in save changes mode:

Code: Select all

su
toor
setup-pman
rm -rf /usr/lib/libdcadec.so.0
pacman -S dcadec
pacman-mirrors -g
pacman -Syyu
- follow arch linux wiki's and install with pman the following :
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg
pman -S xorg-server
pman -S -xf86-video-intel (this is my case, you have to find your video card according to instructions)
pman -S xorg-xinit (or choose a display manager if you prefer)
pman -S xfce4 (or any desktop manager of your choice)
pman -S leafpad
pman -S xorg-xrandr
pman -S xorg-xkill

-transform your change folder into a module from another porteus installation

Code: Select all

root /mnt/live/memory # dir2xzm changes upgrade-changes.xzm
./
Autologin

Code: Select all

root /mnt/sdb2/64bit_nemesis # nano ~/.bash_profile
Put the following in ~/.bash_profile :

Code: Select all

[[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc
 
 # start x on login
 if [[ -z $DISPLAY && ! -e /tmp/.X11-unix/X0 ]]; then
    exec xinit -- /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp vt7
 fi 
edit /etc/inittab the line of code (found above) which starts with these characters c6:2345 and insert instead:

Code: Select all

c6:2345:respawn:/usr/bin/agetty -a <username> -8 -s 38400 tty6 linux
<username> is replaced with the autologin user name.

Autostart

Code: Select all

root /mnt/sdb2/64bit_nemesis # nano ~/.xinitrc
add
startxfce4

upgrade-changes is 518 Mb

The only thing that I missed is the autologin under openrc:

When you built your to get that 130 M did you have all these monules?

Code: Select all

guest /mnt/sdb1/porteus/base $ ls
000-kernel.xzm  
001-core.xzm    
002-gui.xzm   
002-xtra.xzm
003-lxde.xzm      
003-lxdextra.xzm
003-shared.xzm
Why I ask with all those modules mind came up with 190 M. After I did a dir2xzm on the change directory in my USB. I forgot I delete all the files in /mnt/sdb1/porteus/changes/var/cache/pacman/pkg to help to make it smaller but is there any more I can delete to make even smaller?

And I forgot I did add Firefox and Flashplayer so that made it a little bigger.

UPDATE:
Something must have went wrong when I put update-changes.xzm in the moduled directory and I delete the changes directory but then I rebooted back up and it didn't work. I don't know what I did wrong.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I start with kernel and core only. I will have to rewrite the first post as my upgrade module does not work at reboot.

Since 000-kernel and 001-core dose not have a GUI how did you upgrade all those files? What was the command line you used? This is how I want to do it but I don't understand how to. There got to be a way in just one command like Update Manager dose.

The way I did whole Nemesis v3.5 upgrade I did this in terminal mode first.

Code: Select all

su
toor
setup-pman
pacman -R upower-pm-utils
pacman -S upower
rm -rf /usr/lib/libdcadec.so.0
Then I did this in Graphics mode. I need the command line to replace this.

Code: Select all

Update Manager
Then Nemesis was up-to-date.

The 'Text mode' way with 000-kernel and 001-core is more correctly than GUI with a full set of modules. But this way is not perfect too.
For example, I have done it under Text mode - look at this post, but I removed only 003-lxde.xzm and 003-lxdextra.xzm

In text mode is there any order to install them? This is how I can start doing it but I might add the whole at once.

Code: Select all

pacman -S acl acpid acpid-openrc archlinux-keyring attr bash bzip2 ca-certificates ca-certificates-cacert ca-certificates-mozilla ca-certificates-utils cdrtool

Blaze you save me a lot of work. When I get it updated and back up and running will I use dir2xzm on the change directory and convert it to 001-update.xzm but I will be Always Fresh mode when I do it. I will work on 002 and as far as 003 I will change the Desktop from LXDE to Mate.

Blaze do you have 002 files like you posted on 001?

When I fine my cat5 cable I will do 001 and get back when I'm done.

Again thanks Blaze.

unless i'm completely mistaken, 'upgrading' the kernel(000) will break Nemesis, because the standard arch kernel doesn't have the AUFS patch?
also
try extracting 001 , get list of packages from /var/lib/pacman/local
then: pacman -Sw <list of packages> to download to cache without installing
and then : pacman -Uddr /path/to/extracted/module /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.pkg.tar.xz
then mksquashfs it...

I just thought of something if I only bootup in 000-kernel and 001-core there is no text editor to copy and paste the info in to the terminal to install the files. Am I missing something to do it?

Hello jack. I might have a solution.

nano is the standard text editor under manjaro.

All we need is to have mouse cursor under text mode viewtopic.php?f=137&t=6469
