Code Challenges / Alias question
« on: January 25, 2017, 07:30:58 PM »
dpkg aliases...

I just setup these two aliases and honestly I do not know why I never thought of it before

Code: [Select]
alias ins='sudo dpkg -i ./*.deb'
alias deins='sudo dpkg -r ./*.deb'

The setup is clumsy though IMO.. The method for this would work for a single deb file in a directory but if there were more it would install more... Anyone see a cleaner method?  What I really like about dpkg -i is the tab function on a file... when you start for example dkpg -i part of the file name and tab it auto completes for it.. that would be cool in an alias

Open to options

Code Challenges / Mount Chroot script request
« on: January 22, 2017, 08:31:07 PM »
I'll start this off...

I do this a lot on the build systems

Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sdc8 /mnt

sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev

sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys

sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc

sudo chroot /mnt

What I would like to have is a bash script where all I would need to do is

Code: [Select]
sudo script_name sdxx
Where sdxx is a variable of the partition I want to mount and chroot to...

The chroot line is not mandatory but having something I could run to mount and would be incredibly useful

A second script could be written to handle the umount portion I must do also

Code: [Select]
sudo umount /mnt/dev

sudo umount /mnt/sys

sudo umount /mnt/proc

sudo umount /mnt/

Good luck on your mission...  ;D

VSIDO Discussions / Cool Tools...
« on: January 22, 2017, 04:52:23 AM »
Figured we could use just a generic cool tool discussion

I'll start...

curlftpfs based on curl and fuse I was rebuilding some test areas and wanted completely clean V-Box environments to remove cruft (in V-Box) from cloning and start new

Situation: 1.2 gig fsarchive (of host boot system) on a usb and attached to a USB tplink ftp router... I am booted into a livecd and no way to access outside of the v-box session (usb meh in v-box UGLY) ... so I tried on a whim from SpaceFM to go to the ftp: //10.0.1.x on the router.  SpaceFM came back saying it could not find curlftpfs ... I installed it, tried again and was able to fsarchive restore a 1.2 gig file to the new settings on V-Box and am now good to go ... all three new drives were blank and I did not want to install VSIDO on one just to fsarchive it anyway

I also needed to chroot into the new system to reinstall grub back to sda

Rebooted to the new Host drive and now I am good to go

curlftpfs will be a part of VSIDO

General Support / (SOLVED) New builds and Dialog / Yad issues
« on: January 21, 2017, 05:16:18 PM »
In rebuilding from scratch that is discussed more over here I have ran into an issue with the refractainstaller-yad not using dialog and yad correctly and I suspect it is an application I have missed

When I run refractainstaller-yad from the terminal and it gets to the tzdata configure (debconf) portion the installer gets stuck in the terminal instead of popping up the dialog menu box that is the norm

Anyone know the application needed for the correct dialog windows to pop up?

I have scoured the webz trying to trace it but am coming up empty

Every other part of the yad dialog boxes works perfectly.. it is only the Configuring tzdata menu that is not running yad

This is what it normally does and should be doing:

this is what is happening now:

and none of the functions work.. if I exit the terminal the installer continues without configuring tzdata and running from terminal to debug gives no information as to what is missing

VSIDO Discussions / VSIDO Build 2017
« on: January 17, 2017, 02:53:32 AM »
In a discussion that started here this space is reserved to discuss the build process

I will be keeping a journal of the process here

Phase III of this endeavor is completed with the above toolset added except for Firefox or any browser at all

These are the files needed to get to the goal of Phase III which was to have a build to the point of a fsarchive and add specific tools.. think of these as Silos now as development goes forward.. this is the repeatable process I never had to do what I have really wanted in testing different setups and builds.

and these refracta tools

Code: [Select]

also included is the default VSIDO /etc/skel which is the default desktop ... and all /usr/local/bin tools (hakerdefo goodies included!)

There is also an attachment of current installed apps on the released VSIDO to use as a checklist for apps

First bit of news:

New builds using mini.iso .. built using advanced install options and only the base software (no DM) just to the point of a tty login

The initial sizes are

x32 = 212.6 MiB fsarchive
x64 = 204.3 MiB fsarchive

which is close to ISO sizing

VSIDO Discussions / BTRFS and VSIDO
« on: January 16, 2017, 03:29:53 AM »
I am sitting right now on my main build system that I used fsarchiver to backup and restore my Build system to a new BTRFS partition

All I needed to do was format (with gparted) the new partition to btrfs before using fsarchiver to restore my build system. All of this took about 3 minutes from a VSIDO LiveCD and I was done

You can also use btrfs if you want to install VSIDO onto it. The installer does not see btrfs as a file system but if you format it before (using gparted) running the installer you can use it then. Just do not let the installer format the drive since it is already setup from gparted

New year, new directions.. new things to keep an old mans mind SHARP
