No issue.

The next release has several nice improvement such as operating totally in ram (security improvement).

You can re-install Easy OS 2.0 and use pedget to install applications. But DON'T use the update button that will break petget.

Subject description: refind
 

@ Barry


just a question. When refind remembers the last boot menu selection, where is this information stored? In the UEFI-firmware?
Might that (theoretically) include a security risk?

kind regards

edit:

at second thought:
If the information gets stored at boot-up, no security risk might arise. If it is stored during shutdown, the situation might be different.

Little problem with playing video's.
I can play pal standard ones without problems, but trying ntsc format ones all fail. This should not happen nowadays on a computer, maybe there is a driver or configuration setting missing. Unlike a tv a computer can play both if set correctly.

There was more than that broken. The download URLs were also sometimes wrong.

Yes, my understanding is that it is written to the uefi firmware.

Thank you for that post. I am looking forward to testing the next release.

I have been posting to my blog, many fixes and improvements not reported to this forum.

The latest improvement:

http://bkhome.org/news/201908/easyos-booting-up-totally-in-ram.html


Has this already been implemented. In the current releases? Will it be availlable in the Pyro?

This is simillar to the TENS, formerly lightweight portable by the US military.

PostPosted: Sat 24 Aug 2019, 23:57    Post subject: Cannot write to optical drive - udev rules  

@BarryK

For your udev problem you might like to revisit LFS at http://linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/development/chapter07/symlinks.html. Maybe a refresher of 7.3 and then onto 7.4. Especially the last few sentances of 7.4.2. It took some time to sink in to me what they meant and since that is how we do things (are similar) as I have a system with a similar problem. I wonder if we should be running udevadm or something like it each time we start up (,?or are we already doing that) since we can use our usb sticks on many different devices.

Yes, /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit runs udevadm

Buster 2.1 will be announced very soon. I have to write the release notes for it first.

OK, found that,thanks. It makes me think then that it's not checking something relating to the ?usb devices when using the EasyOS programmed usb stick in a different system after setting it up on a first one as the internal usb cdrom didn't work until I manually told it to with:
Code:
udevadm hwdb --update
and then rebooted.

Since this is happening, I shall see if I can trace what's up, i'm sure there is a log somewhere I can compare a good vs faulty. I'll let you know what I find out.

Or maybe there needs to be something that tests for it now being plugged into different hardware and rerun the basic udevadm setup database commands rather than try to use the already created one?

And nice to see your new versions out, I will play with Pyro 1.2 and see if I can build a few extra packages for you that I use.

@scsijon
That's interesting, I always assumed the "udevadm hwdb --update" was something that only had to be done once. Didn't know it depended on what hardware is in the system.

@Argolance
I have thanked you for your theme contribution in the Buster 2.1 release notes. Regarding the new usb-stick that you bought, that appeared to be faulty, I intend to investigate.

Yesterday. one of my usb sticks decided to misbehave, and bootup failed. Something needs to be done to detect this situation...

First step, I propose that EasyDD will write the inverse of the image file to the usb-stick, that is, all bits flipped, then verify, then write the actual image and again verify.

Second step, checksums at bootup of vmlinuz, initrd and easy.sfs, failure to verify any of these and it will post a report and drop to the commandline in the initrd, then you can poweroff.
