I did some more investigating and the q.sfs in the 0.9.3 repository was only 113Mb.

So, I re-upgraded again to 0.9.3 and fixed the boot specs, then I manually copied the 3 files into the repository prior to rebooting. Now it starts up ok. So the problem was incomplete saving to the repository. I can't say why that happened though.

BTW when upgraded the icon theme was changed to your blue icon theme but everything else stayed as I had set up previously (JWM theme, mouse theme, and background)


I found a couple of bugs in the rollback/forward code. The next release, 0.9.4, should be OK, and will probably have to restrict rollback to 0.9.4 or later, as if rollback earlier then will have the broken code.

There's another bug in the containers code Barry. Add a sfs to a container such as ff.sfs using the container manager, and its recorded in the container configuration file as EASY_LAYER_RO1=ff.sfs-*.sfs ... and doesn't get picked up/used.

??? Shouldn't the ec-run file in a containers .session folder include a --keep=1 parameter ???
Code:
if [ "$EC_CAP_DROP" ];then #180427
 capsh --drop=${EC_CAP_DROP} -- -c "${EXE} ${ARGS}"
else
 ${EXE} ${ARGS}
fi

-->

Hi Barry.

Taking a snapshot and adding qfix=bak kernel boot parameter doesn't work as expected for me (HDD frugal installation) - showed the first-boot type desktop instead of the expected last snapshot desktop. Rolling back to that snapshot via the menu and rebooting again had it back to the desired snapshot image as before.

It's good practice to cd into the chroot folder before chrooting as chroot doesn't actually change dir into the chroot and can otherwise leave a file descriptor link to outside of the chroot environment that might be exploited.

Edit /usr/local/easy_containers/ec-chroot (and others) to have a
cd ${CONTAINER}
before the unshare ... chroot action (i.e. above/before the
#--map-root-user needed if have -U, otherwise env will fail.
if...)

Still doubtful about running as root inside the container. Things like mknod or write access to /lib or /etc ... etc can be used to potentially break out of the container).

Easy 0.9.3 pupradio/puptelly doesn't work for me.
Code:
# pupradio
/usr/local/pupradio/pupradio: line 108: /root/.pupradio/config: No such file or directory

Other graphical/multimedia programs such as screen recording using FFConvert do seem to be working fine

To rufwoof,
I read your post with interest when you say pupradio
isn't working.
The only thing is, you don't spell out exactly WHAT isn't working.
Not working is vague, however comparing your post
# pupradio
/usr/local/pupradio/pupradio: line 108: /root/.pupradio/config: No such file or directory
with my working app, does agree the same.

Q: does the app actually launch?

If the app does launch, try pressing button 6 vpr bbc.
This ALWAYS works and none of the other buttons work in UK
because their URL links are defunk.

Button 6 announcement is
"This freestream of the bbc is provided by Vermont Public Radio.
Please make a gift to support it at VPR.net"

This announcement proves the app works in principle.
So the only job left to do is insert your own preferred
remaining station names to button numbers and known
URL streaming link strings.
If you live in UK, I can supply suggested info as required above.

How am I doing so far? BTU.
Regards.

When I click the pupradio menu option ... nothing happens at all. No sign of life whatsoever.

Running pupradio from the command line showed the output I posted. I put that down as being the fault, but as you're saying that you get the same message in a working version ??? Looks like it might just be my configuration/setup then (if it works for some (you), but not me - then that's a issue for me, not Barry).

Testing further ... I had no /root/.pupradio/config, touching that file and pupradio starts up fine now. Somehow, not sure how, I must have lost that config file.

Presets all seem to be working for me (I'm in the UK). Switched one over to being LBC that is one of my regular radio stations that I early morning listen to.

Well done problem solved, just a temporary blip then.

I find Pup's only eight channels are a bit restricted.
I prefer a radio playlist with lots of stations running
on audacious rather than Pup.
Great sound quality that program has with its extra
wide stereo filter - a good idea Barry had including
it in Easy.

Am also running a homespun worldTV playlist
on Barry's mpc-qt.
When there's no buffer bloat causing picture breakup,
the HD quality is superb.
Trouble is, at certain times of day even on faster fibre,
too many people hog the data bandwidth, running gaming
or downloading Netflix!

Cheers.

Barry, just something that may be of use with containers userspace.

There are several posts above, that I have only seen now. Will study them later.

For the last few days, have been working on encryption. And here it is, version 0.9.4:

http://bkhome.org/news/201806/easyos-pyro-094-released.html

Let me know if it does anything odd, now that the folders in the working-partition are encrypted. Limited testing by me, it seems OK. There doesn't seem to be any slowdown.

One thing I didn't mention in the blog announcement: the boot menu on UEFI-based PCs now has all the sub-options at the top level. This makes them much more obvious.

rufwoof,
A quick note about "Rollback to last snapshot" in the boot menu. if you haven't made any actual snapshots, then rollback will be to the very first automatically-created snapshot, which is repositories/easy-0.9.4/rw-0.9.4.sfs, which has nothing in it -- meaning that at bootup it will be same as a pristine first-time bootup.

...oh, and welcome back!

I installed 0.9.4 to a 32gb usb-3.0 flash drive:

video-info-glx 1.5.3 Wed 6 Jun 2018 on Easy Pyro64 0.9.4 Linux 4.14.44 x86_64

I added some pets.
I have Firefox and Lxterminal running in a container, I have cmus
playing a radio station in the lxterminal container, is it secure?

On 1st boot I entered a password to enable encryption, now enter the
password on each bootup (it won't boot until I do enter the password).

That's it so far.
Thanks.

But I did have snapshots, both for the main system and for snapshots), above and beyond the first boot backup that the system automatically creates. I'll recheck after I've downloaded and cleanly installed 0.9.4 as it might have been a consequence of other things/tests made before trying out the rollback. Wondering if it might be consequence of using frugal (to HDD) installation - we'll see.

I entered the password to enable encryption.
I changed the root password.
I put firefox and lxterminal in a container.
I run cmus in the lxterminal container.

So I ask you again @Barry, is it secure???
