Added peasy2boot to alphaOS repository, with some fixes to work with new gtkdialog (gtk3),
use yad instead of xmessage and replaced icon (this one is 64x64).

Worked OK in test with Ubuntu 13.04 cd image. Simple and Easy way to make bootable USB stick.

Excellent!

I was thinking about updating peasy2boot. Easy2Boot it self is under heavy development.
When steve does a release I think I'll go for it.

Do you wanna know more about Easy2Boot checkout

https://sites.google.com/a/rmprepusb.com/www/tutorials/72---easyboot---a-grubdos-multiboot-drive-that-is-easy-to-maintain/e2bv1

Sim? Can I create a version that uses either gtk2 or gtk3? or do I have to do one for each?

I tested some iso images with Easy2Boot and it worked for ubuntu 13.04, ubuntu gnome3 version and cinnarch. only Fedora didn't work - that is why I downloaded ubuntu gnome3 image (gnome 3 is very nice btw).

Your script peasy2boot was already working with gtk3 version, I just changed some icons and replaced xmessage dialog with yad. Also window default_height and default_width seem problematic with gtk3

Fedora-Live-Desktop-i686-19-Alpha-1.iso
Fedora is not really priority for me, just wanted to test any distribution with gnome 3 and found this one http://ubuntugnome.org. You can relax, Easy2Boot is useful program, my intention was not to complain just to inform about what's working...

Hi simargl,
Just wanted to report that an Inkscape sfs that I made from archpup works in alphaOS too, after creating only one symlink of libpoppler Smile. Sorry I couldn't bear with dependencies when I tried to compile it in alphaOS Wink .
By the way, since you've been playing with gnome3 lately, wouldn't it be cool to have a gnome adrive just like openbox? Can't wait to try that if it is made available.
Cheers.

Ok, if it's working I'll make package for inkscape using original one from Arch and make launcher to point to gtkmm and other libraries in /opt/gparted/lib. Yes, gnome 3 sfs would be great to try, but it's too big for me to compile (maybe 'makesfs gnome' in archpup ?)

PostPosted: Thu 02 May 2013, 01:15    Post_subject: woot! boot with radeon  

Just to report I tried the v5 iso on a CPQ laptop with radeon chipset and this time got to the gui, as opposed to test with v4. However X resolution was wrong, 1024x768 as opposed to the screen native res of 1280x768. Couldn't see a way of changing this without resorting to rocket science, or at least the slightly laborious business of creating suitable modeline settings and getting them to run with xrandr.

I also found that although broadcom firmware seems to be present, the interface is not recognised. BCM4318 in this case iirc. After 'modprobe b43' iwconfig saw wlan0 but Pwireless wouldn't have anything to do with it. Again I guess it could be made to work at the cli via wpa_supplicant.conf.

Version 5 has newer Xorg 1.14 and mesa 9.1, that is why Xorg started to work for you. For
fixing those problems I suggest to open /etc/rc.conf and add b43 to MODULES so it will auto
load on boot, and change X_AUTOLOGIN to "no". Then you can make new xorg.conf using X
-configure command, and replace /etc/X11/xorg.conf with /root/xorg.conf.new. You can test this
without save file to avoid potential problems.
Cheers!

Thanks for Inkscape too.
Any chance of having the following in the repo as well? Smile
1.a screenshot application
2. color picker
3. skype
4. a mail client (have been using sylpheed in other puppies)
5. sfs viewer (not installer)

Thanks again and cheers.

screenshot tool is there already (scrot)
color picker - you have one integrated in geany
sfs viewer - I don't know what that is Wink , there is spacefm plugin to unsquash sfs file if that's good

Will add sylpheed - soon - probably

Thanks for the pointers. Their locations are not quite obvious though Wink .
Since command line is not the favorite of many newbies, a GUI for scrot will come in handy.
SFS Load in other puppies have additional button for viewing (mounting) or closing (unmounting) sfs modules that are not yet loaded. Perhaps, you may want to take a look.

Cheers.

Here is link to mplayer2 site where it's announced that python 3 is required for building latest version from git http://www.mplayer2.org/2012/06/17/python3-requirement/. Info is nice and clear... and completely untrue if you apply this patch from Gentoo https://github.com/init6/init_6/blob/master/media-video/mplayer2/files/mplayer2-py2compat.patch, witch allows building with python2 (2.7.4 in this case). So, after that finding I have updated mplayer2 to git+20130309 (works better with mp4 youtube videos, no more audio delay etc.,)

i think no more audio delay because mplayer2 using FFMPEG decoder correctly.
