SFR, could you revert your change to /etc/acpi/events/lid and edit /sbin/acpi_poweroff-delay.sh. Change the sleep from 2 to 4.

It works, too. Thanks!

EDIT: nope, doesn't work - I thought it did, because I forgot to restart acpid after editing lid file...

Greetings!

I am ok with the other work-around. Sort of like to close lid and have my wgets and such still working. Plus I use the external HDMI and close the lid to watch movies now that XINE works like magic on my AMD machine.

PostPosted: Fri 20 Feb 2015, 05:03    Post subject: Reclaim USB space for useful partition to house system data  

Everyone knows that I am one of the users on the forum who has traditionally used DVDs to run my PUP systems.

Today, thanks to @Ted Dog, I got the idea to use a 1GB and a 2GB USB to boot one of my PCs in my possession, temporarily.It is a nonUEFI, BIOS PC that my neighbor wants reconditioned.

I did the following
  1. Inserted my 2GB USB and waited for system to acknowledge discovery
  2. GParted the USB to delete all partitions
  3. Fdisk the USB to create a new single, unformatted partition
  4. GParted the USB to create the partition table
  5. Created a bootable FATDOG on the USB as follows:
    Code:
    # dd  bs=4M  if=Kirk/FATDOG700/RC/Fatdog64-700rc.iso  of=/dev/sdg
  6. Rebooted the PC using the USB created by the prior step. It boots to desktop in about 35 seconds.
Thanks @Ted Dog, this worked with excellence.

This new USB based system takes up only 264MB over 2 partitions on the 2GB USB. My question, now, to the community, is how do I regain the empty space on the drive so that session saves can be placed there? What is recommended?

FATDOG's GParted cannot not help as it does not know how to deal with a drive which has an ISO-filesystem partition on it.

Any useful ideas would be appreciated.

Oh, for those who may have missed the thread discussion on a PUPPY ability to locate any file on your system instantaneously, please note:
FATDOG has this ability, OOTB

Thanks you for, yet another, of the great things about FATDOG's speed and functionality.

smokey01, if you can upload the output of "lsusb -v" - that may help to troubleshoot the hardinfo hang on yours.
cheers!


Hardinfo USB info is working fine since I created a new savefile however, when clicking on Computer in hardinfo the Motherboard info is showing dominoes (Desktop). Weird font or something. The rest of the fonts are fine. On the HP laptop it's fine.

re. V-lina, but should do for FD and other misbehaving 64bit doggies.

Thanks, downloaded the script, convert to package, install it, run it, and the installed files is almost identical to what is already in Fatdog (sans some symlinks and files for KDE).I'm not sure if those KDE files matter, Fatdog doesn't have KDE libraries anyway.

So that's not it. If you want to try, download the package from shinobar's, right-click - choose "convert package", the right-click on the newly created package and choose "install package", restart your browser, and try the beeb player. See if it works. I would be surprised if it does, but the world is always full of surprises Smile

This is not in L18L-goodies, this is in basesfs. Do you want me to remove all these? Did you check the latest L18L-goodies from the repo?

You are right.
Sorry.
My fault.

@L18L: login-manager is merged. fatdog-set-locale.sh.i18n needs to be non-root safe (the idea is that different users can have different languages); if it does need to touch /etc/* then it must detect non-root and ask for permission escalation via gtksu.

Changed to graphical login.
Posting as user spot now.

created /root/spot/.config/openbox

Yes I could not add another locale.
root can
user cannot.
Let us say it is a feature. Cool

I have been trying to use $HOME/.config/razor....
but this does not work.
That is the only reason why I have used /etc/xdg/razor

Maybe it is a bug or a misconfiguration of razor

...and what to do with the warning about multimedia keys?

@L18L:
- "grep -Fl usr/share/razor /var/log/packages/*" and you'll see which packages contain these files.
- jwm locale files are definitely inside nls.sfs; I don't know why you can't find it.
- sven bug fixed, thanks.

fatdog-choose-locale works for non-root, this is how I tested it:
1. boot to qemu no savefile with pfix=nox
2. in console, do "su - spot"
3. launch xwin
4. then launch fatdog-choose-locale.sh

- $HOME/.config/razor needs some checking ... it's a bit weird.

Anyway, for real non-root usage/test, don't use user "spot". spot is special (though I try to make things work with spot too). Create another user instead.

Thanks, put in your change to /etc/acpi/events/lid. Maybe I forgot to restart acpid too the time it didn't work for me. Acpi_listen did show button/lid LID close on my dell laptop and on an acer, so I tried it again and it worked.

Question
Does anyone
  • have a link or
  • know of a way
to reclaim space on any bootable FATDOG USB stick created using these steps?
Or, is reclaiming space on a FATDOG stick, partitioned like this, impossible?

Thanks in advance for an answer

By using DD to write the ISO image to a USB stick you have overwritten the partition table. So the USB stick is unaware that it has anymore space on it. You'd have to manually re-write the partition table with a hex editor by hand so that it uses the typical USB flash disk structure and then expand the partitions out manually. there is no utility to do what you want.

Thats why no one suggests doing DD to write a usb image to a drive if you're planning on using it with persistence. You're better of burning an CD and installing to a USB drive. Using DD to write a ISO to a usb for anything other using that to install just like a regular ISO is a BAD idea. And its advice that we should not recommend as it creates the problem you're facing.

If people want a persistant USB image, that's something that could be created and shared like an ISO, but to my knowledge its not something people have ever requested. I've only known of a few distros that have done it in the past.

sorry @gcmartin... mistyped your name


You need to run fix-usb.sh found inside the ISO file were vmlinuz is also.

May need to copy it to root or tmp, haven't tried it in the last year or so.
