I never examined the source code, it may be that the first partition, with UEFI-bootable and legacy-bios flags both set, upsets guess_fstype.

I rewrote guess_fstype and blkid as a combined single toy for toybox and used a much simplified detection mechanism. Rob Landley fixed it up to be able to read from stdin so you can do stuff like gunzip pupsave.2fs.gz | fstype (it only reads until the fs is detected). You can build fstype as a single "toy", but It wouldn't be that hard for me to make it standalone if there is a need for it.

Sorry for the spam Barry but I thought this gparted news would be more relevant to Quirky users than other pups due to the roots method and efi.

Gparted's recent release now supports unpartitioned disks and GPT partitioning (finally). This is a requirement for booting efi root partitions using the root=PARTUUID=... (which is the GPT/efi UUID)

This significantly reduces boot times (especially on systems with multiple drives) since device probing isn't needed. The only way I have been able to get a marginally faster desktop boot was with an uncompressed xvesa+jwm+netsurf-fb kiosk initramfs inside an lz4-HC compressed kernel, but that only brought it down from ~0.8s to ~0.6s.

fun is there a copy for us to play, want to see a lz4_HC kernel expand, also can we fatten it up a bit Mad just never expected me to say that ( and its no longer April Fools Day ) it would not be much data there to show the speed improvements it offers.

To Barry some suggestions:

Is it possible to paint some green around the green check mark to avoid the
strange fringe effect.

I suspect you have already tried the following...

Using terminal do these work?

This should give one message:
Code:
gxmessage Hello don570

edit a crontab:
Code:
crontab -e

and put this in, it should message every minute:
Code:
* * * * * gxmessage Hello don570

exit and list the crontab:
Code:
crontab -l


If it does not work, how about:
Locate gxmessage:
Code:
which gxmessage

I assume /usr/bin
Code:
* * * * * /usr/bin/gxmessage Hello don570


What does this return?
Code:
ls -la `which crontab`

Is it an entry point to busybox?

Which recent LibreOffice? This one: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-april/libreoffice-4.4.1.2-april-i686.pet ?

If so, I find that it works perfectly on USB sticks. It is not the complete LibreOffice either, but only the Writer/word processor. And it did not work on either hard drive partition running Quirky 6.1.4. On both hard drives partitions, I was able to download and install with no problems, but when opening the program, it flashes the opening graphics and then it vanishes!

So, if you need to use the writer, it will install to USB stick, work like a million bucks--and away you go! Very Happy


My PET is almost the full suite. Without Java and database-backend.
But all the other components are there: writer, draw, impress, calc.
-- they are scattered around the menu.


AHA! Your last two posts on LibreOffice in this thread explains quite a few things! Thanks, again! Very Happy

No. I had to do some awful hacks. Haven't been brave enough to try it in T2 yet.
I have documented the steps, can post them if you are interested.

EDIT:
I should add that compile fails, building a test utility. But, I found that it had finished compiling everything, and just did a manual install.
But that is not good enough for T2. The compile would have to complete without error.
The investment in time is the main problem -- takes about 12 hours to compile.

Well, there is a project for you, if you would like to take it on!

The image is here:

/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-tick.xpm

It can be edited in mtPaint and improved.

I'm actually working on a set of ultra-lite flat svg icons, drawn using only <path>s using a text editor.

What is the best way to search for files and items inside files with Quirky? That Pfind program is completely worthless and never finds anything. Anyone know of a program that actually works that I can download and get the job done?

If you are willing to learn a command line tool... grep
It is not difficult once you understand the syntax.

It can be as simple as:
Code:
grep PATTERN FILE...
Search for PATTERN in each FILE

To look for the string "r.by" in all "txt" files
The dot "." in "r.by" means any character.
Code:
grep "r.by" *.txt
will find "ruby" or "roby" or...
