VSIDO Installation Help / Re: VSIDO Installation Guide for fsarchive version
« on: September 11, 2022, 01:25:42 AM »
Be careful of the same UUID on the same machine if you have multiple installs. That is a natural issue with fsarchive like the time zone because it keeps it.. I think I will add how to change the UUID in the After you install section and HIGHLY recommend it be done


Might want to also be aware that SWAP may also need tinkering if you have/use one. I do on this lappy so it can go into hibernate easily.  I think I had a couple of /etc/fstab edits to make before that all settled itself as well.  I'm thinking anyone using a sid is probably pretty versatile using things like blkid and mkswap and swapon stuff on the fly...  8)

 ::) So yeah, ceni is deprecated and on my laptop it runs however it doesn't find the wlan0 connection. (or wlp2s0 etc)  Not sure how this would work out for someone else on a different lappy.  nmtui solves this for most lappy users imo.  Of course one could go to all the trouble of doing it all via the terminal, but with wireless this tends to be a bit of a pain for some. (gasp)  Anyway it definitely works.

So the welcome script, vsido-welcome just needs some lovin' I think...  8)

The following installed just fine via vsido-welcome;
cups printer-driver-cups-pdf system-config-printer printer-driver-hpijs git git-gui git-cvs git-svn git-email mercurial subversion subversion-tools bzr bzrtools cvs thunar-vcs-plugin geany openssh-server

--Lamp Stack  -not installed because of user preference, I don't need any of it yet...
apache2 mysql-server php5 php-pear php5-gd php5-mysql php5-imagick php5-curl curl phpmyadmin rsync cronolog--  don't know if any of it would have worked.  Doubtful as to the oldish nature of some of the version numbers?

--Dev Env for Debian Packaging  installed via apt
build-essential debhelper cdbs dh-make diffutils patch gnupg fakeroot lintian devscripts dpatch dput quilt zenity clipit bashburn keepassx numlockx-- installed

--Image Editors   installed via apt
gimp inkscape mtpaint gcolor3 shotwell darktable rawtherapee-- installed

--No longer in repo's
dpatch=no candidate, bashburn=no package found, gcolor2=gcolor3 now instead and installed via apt, openjdk-6-jre is up to like 19 now, icedtea6-plugin is now icedtea-netx--  not installed

and oh yeah, cups-pdf is now printer-driver-cups-pdf.

So there, if I missed anything let me know...

Now if I can figure out this new jgmenu toy!!!

Happily sporting VSIDO w/Fluxbox!  That new .fsa way of doing things is just  8)  Same ole same ole...



Hope everyone is well and prospering with VSIDO!!!

Quote from: VastOne
Now, to be honest and solely IMO, I would want to have a working version of linux with grub working installed before I did this only because I know there is background and a working knowledge of all of this to begin with

This is probably the only way right now that it will work.  Unless, like VastOne said, one were to use chroot.  That is also discussed elsewhere already on the site.
Because already existing partitions and multiple distro's were installed, it was absolutely and totally painless starting out with just an .fsa file.  I believe there is even an older set of howto's around here on fsarchiver and doing this sometime over the last decade...

Ceni worked VastOne.  Network Manager Settings was in the Fluxbox menu on the file I used to begin.  It was the first archive we started with.  The menu item did not work so I looked and it was not installed.  I was hooked up via ethernet.  So I used apt and grabbed 'network-manager' & 'wireless-regdb'.  This simply allowed me to activate wlan0 using the Fluxbox menu.  I would have had to take several different painful steps in order to accomplish everything this did for me versus using Ceni.  Hope that makes things a little easier to understand...

Other than that one little tidbit, I just used medit to edit the config files more to my personal eclectic style.

Indeed it will!!!  Worked wonderfully easy on a HP cheapy laptop that I had several distros installed on.  Just created the partition I wanted and followed the instructions, though I may have had a bit of an advantage there...

I just restored the archive, updated grub, rebooted into the goto distro on the lappy at the time, did another update grub and voila.  Booted right into VSIDO first time!

 8) Very nice indeed!  Worked perfect for me!  ;D Outstanding work VastOne!!!  :)

wow PackRat she's become quite the fishergal!!!  I'm back at the lake house for the last two years now so the lake is empty now.  I've caught all the brook trout out of it and have absolutely no pic's on here yet to show for it.
I do have a life but it has been a tough year I'll tell you certain.  Waking up from knee surgery this summer was the most painful event so far of my life.  I've missed all of you the last year or so and hope to be here more often now.  My injury happened on April 16th this spring and pretty much consumed my spring and summer this year.  We are now into fall with temp's already getting into the 30's at night.  I had to wait apprx. 3 mos for my surgery as I had to have clearance from cardiology.  Surgery in July and now 2 mos later I'm walking without a limp for the most part. Total loss of my ACL, tore the MCL and damaged a shit load of meniscus.  They cut some of my hamstring out and used it to create a new ACL graft.  I had a total dislocation of the knee this spring while working on my truck.  Total pain and total gruesomeness I have to say.  Just looking at it at the time of the injury was puke inducing!!!
Anyway same ole me otherwise as you can see by the book like entry...

It has been far too long since I have posted...

No doubt, same here.  Not even sure if I've posted a scot this year.  Shame on me.  I am still involved everyone believe it or not and stay in touch with VastOne.  May your golfing career be as long as since the day you began to play till now!!!  ??? (inside joke?  nahhhh it's pathetic...)

So, haven't been in the computer game much this year.  Took the year off you might say.  At the beginning of the year a new laptop was purchased for the first time since 2014 or '15, not sure.  As you'll quickly be able to tell it is a MacBook Pro and my first one ever.  I'm totally blown away by it and love it and mostly blame Linux for that!  8). Course now that GMB might be back, we'll have to see about getting that running cross environment and going on the Mac!  Yup still type too much...

VSIDO News & Announcements / Long live VSIDO
« on: February 29, 2020, 03:15:08 AM »
So, read up everyone!  In theory, this marks the 12th year for VSIDO.  A long life for any distro, imo.  When you toss in the fact that VSIDO has been here through thick and thin, always maintained by one solitary individual from the very beginning makes it a really special distro indeed.  Long live VSIDO, long live FOSS!

To a special friend, I hope you have the best birthday this year that you've ever had!  This has been a tremendous journey, and I'm so glad our travels have just begun!  Long live the "VastOne"!  (quick edit: I know it's not till tomorrow, but hey sometimes it's not for years!!! FOR REAL!!!)
