How to make a squashfs module of the Calibre ebook manager

1. Go to the Calibre website and download a .txz package. Look under "Manual binary install". These packages appear to be complete, with all the required dependencies.
2. Extract the package into a temporary folder named "Calibre".
3. Download and rename the attached deb package. It contains a .desktop file for Calibre.
4. Do a repo2sfs third-party build: repo2sfs calibre-desktop_1.0_all.deb
5. At Pause B, go to /tmp/repo2sfs/opt. Drop in the Calibre folder from Step 2.
6. Finish the build. Look for Calibre in the Accessories menu.

This is the Lenovo single-core netbook from page 8, now with a GPT-formatted hard drive booted through Legacy GRUB. The browser is Palemoon-28 with the 20-intel.conf patch for old video.

It is trying to make an automatic network connection over Ethernet. Assuming that you are NOT connected by Ethernet, it will eventually stop.

It appears that this laptop has built-in nVidia graphics. The Starter Kit should load the nouveau modesetting driver, which usually works well.

But in your case, it does not. With version -71 of the Starter Kit, it should automatically fall back to vesa mode and boot to a desktop.

For older versions, read here.

I notice in your post about XenialDog that it successfully loaded the nouveau driver. [Edit] But it may also have automatically fallen back to VESA.

Hi ....me again !

Inserting xserver-xorg-video-vesa_1%3a2.3.4-1+b2_i386.squashfs into live Folder did help .
No need for adding nouveau.modeset=0. to the Kernel Line in menu.lst .

Adding firmware.squashfs Module also did help getting wireless Connection which could not be established before without .......
Success Laughing Laughing

Thanks a lot !

Excellent. But because you are using VESA, you won't get the maximum video performance.

Read here for how to install the "genuine" nvidia driver.

In the latest -71 version of the Starter Kit, there were updates to libcrypto and libssl that affect certain locally built packages. These include the SANE scanner driver in hplip-print-scan and the 64bit version of Evince PDF viewer. Here are some patches.

1. Download the required attachment and remove the fake .gz extension.
2. Open a terminal and run: sh libcrypto-71-xxbit-patch.sh
libcrypto-71-32bit-patch.sh.gz

This is an Acer Aspire E15 Win10 laptop with 4GB RAM and a puny Celeron N2830 CPU. The Windows was pretty slow, but I wanted to save it and dual boot with the Starter Kit. This meant keeping the UEFI/GPT configuration. The primary boot would be from a Linux EFI which could optionally chainload the Windows EFI.

1. The crucial first step in Windows is to disable hibernation. This ensures that the machine completely shuts down at the end of a session and there are no side-effects with Linux. Read here.

2. From Windows, back-door into the UEFI setup and disable Secure Boot. This machine has a quirk - you need to set a supervisor password before you can modify Secure Boot. Then you can set the boot device order and boot off a UEFI flash drive.

3. Run Gparted and shrink the main Windows partition by 10-20GB. Make a Linux partition in the new space.

4. Run the Stretch-Live-Frugal-Installer and install the Starter Kit into the new partition. Translate its GRUB menu entry into GRUB2 syntax.

5. Now for the UEFI bootloader. Identify the FAT32 EFI System Partition (ESP) used by Windows. Rename its EFI folder as WIN-EFI. Copy the Linux EFI folder off the flash drive.

6. Build a grub.cfg file using the code from Step 4. For Windows, add an entry like:
Code:
menuentry "Windows 10" {
 set root=(hd0,gpt2)
 chainloader /WIN-EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
}

How to make a squashfs module for Youtube-DLG

Note: These instructions are for the 64bit Buster Starter Kit ONLY.

1. Read here for details.

2. Download the Ubuntu .deb package from here.

3. Set up a CleanMode environment.

4a. Start a third-party build: repo2sfs youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
4b. Include the Extra package: python-twodict
4c. At Pause B, go to /tmp/repo2sfs. Drill down to usr/lib/wx/python.
4d. Open a terminal and type: ln -sf wx3.0.pth wx.pth

5. Finish the build. Look for Youtube-DLG in the Internet menu.

Hint: Download files using a generic format like mp4[360p]. These will play nicely in PeasyMP3.

How to make a squashfs module for FocusWriter

FocusWriter is a Qt app. Start in a CleanMode setup so you get all the dependencies.

This is a regular repo2sfs build. Use Package name: focuswriter.

For spellchecking, include a dictionary package on the Extras line, like: hunspell-en-ca.

To change some default properties like the font, look under Settings > Themes.

How to make a squashfs module for SMPlayer

The Debian repos have SMPlayer, so you can do a regular repo2sfs build. But if you want the latest version, go to the SMPlayer website, get a .deb package and do a third-party build instead.
Code:
repo2sfs smplayer_19.1.0+2.2_amd64.deb

If you also want some optional packages like smplayer-themes or smplayer-skins, you need a work-around:
1. Go to the Debian repos and download the packages. Do NOT install them!
2. Start the build. At Pause A, drop the files into /var/cache/apt/archives.
3. Finish the build.
