Just had a quick look at this release 0.5 and I was impressed. I was running it from the ISO in Qemu.
The only two things I noticed that were broken, no icon in the menu for precord and Inkscapelite didn't run. Other that that it seems to be working very well.

Subject description: Initial Quick Test:
 

Hi Barry,

Thanks for this latest release.
Install was a frugal one using the ISO to my usual 3 partition 8GB USB template layout.
i.e.
#1st Partition 15MB fat16 boot partition. Label "ZIP16" (Prepared with HP Utility)
# 2nd Partition 300MB vfat/fat32 test media (If any) Label "pool" UUID=24A4-3777
# 3rd Partition 7.1GB f2fs for full install or main sfs, save folder etc. Label "system" PARTUUID=00060b5d-03

Your innovative Q_ID boot technique was used with the q.sfs and Q_ID placed on the 3rd partition.

Despite having > 25 partitions to search, that on first boot was found in only a couple of seconds and the desktop
reached about 10 seconds later. Both sound and ethernet worked OOTB with no need for user intervention. Very Happy

Issues found:

1. The lack of gtk-3 meant that recent apps such as Chrome will not work.

2. The nouveau driver lacked hardware acceleration as did Easy Linux 0.5 pre-alpha, released Oct. 02, 2017 and requires
the items detailed in this post: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=969820#969820

3. The "Show location" option when right clicking an item in the pFind search results does not function.

Thats it so far, just a couple of items to consider compiling & including. You seem to have cracked the ethernet problem. Very Happy

Subject description: Nice
 

Hi Barry,
Thanks for this latest release. I am testing it, and will probably migrate to if from slaq64...

I miss Quirky's F2FS boot and the speediness of it. This is by far
the fastest distro I have tested. TBH ext4 does not work nicely on a flash drive. Will F2FS be avaliable on -esp- syslinux boot?

I have read several comments about how ppl think your are giving up on the .sfs and aufs idea. Although I like the use of .sfs anbd AUFS. and it has it uses; as a tinkerer and developer, I easily mess up the layered file system.
It would great if you kept Quirky full install always around alongside Easy...

Im a giving OE a full compile, I will probably have some questions later...

Thanks B.

dd'd to a usb stick running on a lenovo thinkpad x230 (4xi5, 8Gb ram)

first thoughts on the theme wasn't good but it grew on quickly, like it!

sadly running was 'sluggish', selecting a program took a couple of seconds to load, seemed ok when loaded, every selection took too long

will try from a cd in case my usb is the cause

Smile

edit, as an aside, the hotkeys do not work, I discovered the following workaround adding to the kernel paramaeters: acpi_osi="!Windows 2012"

however, frequency scaling DID work, this required intel_pstate=disable when running xenialpup64

running xcalc causes a drop out of x to a console window.

managed to get this when using a startup option in terminal:

Thanks Keef. Smile
I recreated the icon pixmap successfully from GoingNuts post. Still messing around with it though. I'll test it later.

Tried pyro64-0.5 on a stick on a dell optiplex 755 that usually works 64bit ok.

Tried it once and tried setting the alsa up with no result so started it again. Again after booting :-

1/ no sound on startup: sound was turned off and I turned it on: tried 2 barks again with no differance.

2/ tried a av dvd and nothing happened so I looked around and found this in the /tmp/xerrs.log file.

Lines 23 to 31 are from 2barks
Lines 32 to 34 relate to trying the dvd

scsijon,
I think you mentioned that you have a PC with 32-bit UEFI, and 64-bit CPU.

The Pyro64 0.5 8GB image file has rEFInd, with both 32-bit and 64-bit bootloaders in it.

Would you mind writing that image to a 8GB stick and test if it boots on a 32-bit UEFI -- proper UEFI boot, not legacy-mode.

Guys,
Thanks for all the testing. I haven't had time to read the posts in detail since 0.5 released, but will do so soon.

Right now, I am doing a 32-bit x86 compile, i686, in OE. It has almost finished, and only 'arp-scan' and 'xine-ui' have failed -- I will just compile those in a running Pyro32 and create PETs.

So, expect a i686 Pyro32 soon. It is splitting my workload too much though, so might not be able to give it much attention to fix bugs -- except for bugs that are common to Pyro64.

Changing the subject, has anyone explored what's in the Package Manager, in "compat-oe" repo? All sorts of packages have been compiled in OE and are available for installation. There's gimp, firefox, mariabd, for example.

Yep, easy done. This should be ok as I have one of the new S.... 16gig sticks with both usb3 and micro-usb plugs in one (one each end). I will have a go tomorrow evening and let you know the results.

By the way, even with the latest machines I played with in adelaide (loved the new B3 grapics drawing screen but not the price), they just don't have seem to have added booting from the microsd, but on some you can boot with a full size sd card in an external dongle, go figure.

regards

Sorry,

Tried, but it failed after the menu autostarted with:-

Quirky Linux - Booting OS

Starting vmlinuz
Using load options 'root-PARTUUID=fc67e7dd-02 rootwait rw'
Invalid loader file!
Error: Not Found while loading vmlinuz

"hit any key to continue"

and that was all it said,

And with a check the partuuid is correct so that is not the problem.
Tried adding qfix=nox etc and a few of your other tricks from the past, but of course as it can't find a usefull loader it just bombs.

Let me know if you have any ideas to try, i'll monitor this thread.

EDIT1: woke up with a thought to try, so tried copying the 32bit BOOTIA eufi file from sdb1 to sdb2/boot but no change, it's definately going to sdb2/boot though as it's picking that menu and not sdb1's. Also tried putting the partuuid in the sdb2/boot/ config file but that also did nothing. back to bed, mowing tomorrow the grass is too long.

my Lenovo Thinkcentre.

Now have EasyOS on 32gb SDHC card plugged into usb card reader plugged into
usb 2.0 port on the back of the computer.
