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...

@Rapha_
Freezen at boot dosen't happen in my environment.
If you have a time, please modify the initrd.zstd in the ISO and upload it.
Would you help me.


Thanks.

I dropped executable scripts as below in /user/local/bin for APorteus to avoid 'dirty bit' in mounted devices.

shutdown:rsuo.sh

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

for c in r s u o; do
  echo $c > /proc/sysrq-trigger
  sleep 1
done
reboot:rsub.sh

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

for c in r s u b; do
  echo $c > /proc/sysrq-trigger
  sleep 1
done
In terminal, for shutdown,

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# rsuo
I removed 'systemd.shutdown' from /usr/lib/systemd/

This can be used in porteus and nemisis during hanging . just to avoid finger stretching....kernel magic keyboard action "alt+sysrq+reisuo"

64Bit 05-devel.xzm that is gotten with "Get Addon Packages" will be error
by missing dynamic linked libraries.

Please activate patch-devel-adr.xzm to fix this bug.
And then get 05-devel.xzm with "Get Addon Packages" again.

"ISO Builder" was updated to 22.03.04.3
kernel 5.17 (with no patch)


APorteus uses OverlayFS to build the running space.
Therefore, the XZM module cannot be added or deleted while running.

Please refer to the 3rd article of this thread.
ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus (Post by neko #36689)

[How to add/remove XZM modules]
To add a XZM module,
set the XZM module in a specific external directory DIR,
specify it with the cheat code
"extramod='that external directory DIR'",
and then reboot.

To remove a XZM module,
The deletion is realized by deleting the relevant module from this external directory DIR
and then reboot.
To delete a module XZM included in ISO,
specify the cheat code
"noload='corresponding XZM module'".

Example
(1) prepare

Code: Select all

% pwd
/mnt/sda3/APorteus
% mount
/dev/sda3 on /mnt/sda3 type ext4 (rw,noatime)
% sudo blkid
/dev/sda3: UUID="4cb20b6c-a113-4f58-9321-ebb244bec844" BLOCK_SIZE="4096" TYPE="ext4"
%
% mkdir externalDIR modPool
%
% cat /conf/porteus.cfg
...
LABEL bbbb
MENU LABEL bbbb
KERNEL /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz
INITRD /boot/syslinux/initrd.zstd
APPEND retry reboot=force extramod=UUID:4cb20b6c-a113-4f58-9321-ebb244bec844/APorteus/externalDIR
...
%
(2) set module

Code: Select all

% ls -1
MOD1.xzm
MOD2.xzm
% mv *.xzm /mnt/sda3/APorteus/modPool
% ln -sf ../modPool/MOD1.xzm /mnt/sda3/APorteus/externalDIR/.
% ln -sf ../modPool/MOD2.xzm /mnt/sda3/APorteus/externalDIR/.
%
reboot

(3) delete MOD2.xzm

Code: Select all

% rm /mnt/sda3/APorteus/externalDIR/MOD2.xzm
%
reboot


Thanks.

@maia
When the current APorteus is run in a virtual PC space such as QEMU,
it does not start up to the end after BOOT, does not move to X, and stops at a black screen.

The cause is not been pursuing.
If you know the cause, would you tell me it.

Therefor please stop using APorteus on a virtual space.
Please use APorteus with normal boot.


Thanks.

This version of APorteus ( APorteus-v22.04.02-x86_64.iso (486 M)) is also installed on my HD and the message I mentioned before appears:

On previous isos versions worked correctly

I guess that ArchLinux package drastic changes make any effect to APrteus booting.

ArchLinux package drastic changes Example:
<pakage delete>
gnome-icon-theme-symbolic
hardinfo
sylpheed
giblib

<package split>
libnma --> libnma and libnma-common
/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.nm-applet.gschema.xml is included from libnma to libnma-common.
This change is not yet done in 32bit packages.
If 32Bit APorteus has no network appliet icon, the new 32bit pachage libnma-common must be added.

"APorteus ISO Builder" assumes that basic packages construction is not change frequently.
But this assumption doesn't seem to fit the Arch Linux package.

Thanks.

Neko, tks for considerate answer.

I have OVporteus, APorteus and Porteus on HD. I end up messing up.
I deleted the old APorteus install and did a clean install and it worked. I returned my rootcopy and it worked. I returned some modules and found the responsible for the error, It was Cinnamon's module that was probably from Porteus.

:)

PS: I like your menuentry for iso.
