sorry for my newbie's question..again, Embarassed
To upgrade 3.0 to 4.0, how can I do ? (frugal install).

first mount new iso:

mkdir new
mount alpha*.iso new

then copy alpha_400.sfs and extra_400.sfs to your frugal installation folder
and replace old vmlinuz and initrd.gz with files from new version
Cheers


Open iso with 7Zip and take those files out ...

Must say something :

since I started using Alpha OS X has never crashed

and it's not the same thing for other distributions (Puppy or other..)

Best regards

Hi Arefacti, did you try to download from https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en Description from the site Everything you need to safely browse the Internet. This package requires no installation. Just extract it and run.

I'm now compiling xfce using description about dependencies from this site
http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/building

It will be like standard xfce but without thunar, as we already have spacefm.
Will also add gnome icon theme, some icons are missing in my cut-down version of faenza.

Arefacti, to start program as regular user open terminal and type: su alpha and then tor-browser
Cheers

Xfce Desktop Environment

Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.

You need to Install xfce4-session package and that will get all the others as dependencies. Then press Logout in openbox, on next xorg start you will be using Xfce. Total number of packages is 12, size 7.2 Mb gnome-icons-theme alone is 3.5 Mb all locales are enabled..

Note: when you remove package xfce4-session, with post_install function it will restore openbox as default window manager

Hi Simargl,

I'm following the thread on and off and the alphaOS looks very promising.
I got a bit confused by the package system. On one hand, it seems the default Arch packages can be installed using pacman, on the other hand I see you come up with a list of packages you're building yourself from scratch. What would be the difference?

Keep it up!

Hi gulk thanks for your interest

pacman can install programs but some of them will not work because they are compiled for Arch kernel and udev version, that was problem in archpup also. Example is virtual box that did not work in archpup but here it works, second example is deadbeef - it could not compile in archpup because of missing iconv in glibc. Those kind of problems were unsolvable for me ; I could not update udev because with newer version sound and internet connections didn't work. It might sound strange but maintaining alphaOS for me is easier than Archpup, I don't need to compile new kernel for every new release as glibc version is locked at 2.17. Having two package managers in same system is not good idea so pacman is removed from repository, but here is Sensei made by stifiling to support installing programs with pacman only.

Cheers
