^ any tips on the above? Website for Gnuinos is spanish and translates ok but seems lacking in further details. Revamp is my guess.

#2 Re: DIY » loksh: a Linux port of OpenBSD's ksh » 2020-05-26 16:20:07

What are the differences in your backport to the locally available ksh in stable/testing ?

#3 Re: Devuan Derivatives » GNUinOS - Libre » 2020-05-25 12:05:23

Hi not sure if this would be the right place to ask but what is the login and password for the live session of the beowulf iso found here:

I get to the slim login and have tried the usual suspects like root / toor and live / user

#4 Re: DIY » loksh: a Linux port of OpenBSD's ksh » 2020-05-24 16:15:24

Yeah i use openbsd on another machine, 6.7 has proved to be really good performance wise on my intel gear.

Would be nice to see debian pick up loksh in testing.

I see alpine linux and some other musl libc based distros have picked this up, i actually dual boot alpine and openbsd on said machine so will have to install loksh on alpine wink

#5 Re: DIY » loksh: a Linux port of OpenBSD's ksh » 2020-05-24 15:10:37

what is the benefit of this loksh over say mksh or ksh in the repos as it stands, updated and maintained i suppose?

#6 Re: Installation » Beowulf – Network Interface Order » 2020-05-15 15:36:46

so much easier having the old interface naming scheme, even when im messing about with systemd distros ill change them back to the old interface naming scheme via boot commands as fsmithred mentions but using net.ifnames=0

#7 Re: Installation » Beowulf – Network Interface Order » 2020-05-15 14:56:38

My install uses the old interface names like wlan0 and usb0 etc...

what are you getting and what do you mean by interface order ?

I think with systemd its something like enp0s7 or wlp7s0 etc...

Try … 1.3-2.html instead, trousers is now obsolete.

There is also … _11-2.html which is strange to find on pkg search as i did an apt search this particular package did not show up.

Might have to give this a try again and see if i can build ecryptfs.

I had issues with my hardware not being compatible with trousers. It was dependant on tss2 but debian stable is only tss1?

I dont know much about this as it might not pertain to building every package but this seems to be a hurdle in regards to crypto.

More info.

Tried building this against devuan beowulf and failed.

But there is some strange situation with package dependency lists which a present only in Salix derivative.

It is not as good as debian's apt that is for sure but it is workable.

#13 Re: Devuan » Debian has fallen. What now? » 2020-05-08 13:19:30

slackware is alright imo, i  think only one person is maintaining it too ( Patrick Volkerding ).

You can always uninstall packages with slackware to get a minimal system. Installing packages is not that hard either if you bother to learn how to do it, just sayin.

There is daily builds from this uk server as well. … rrent-iso/

slackware is one of the original linux distro's, its good to see it still around.

#14 Re: Installation » New install of Beowulf » 2020-05-06 11:37:50

Xfce4 has its own volume/control icon plugin so volumeicon wont be a default consideration imo.

Network may not be an issue it depends on how you connect to the net, generally most users connect via routers but via wifi, the source is the issue really. If you are connecting via wifi from say someone elses router and you cant get access to an ethernet port then it could be problematic. If on the other hand you own a smart phone you can connect via tethering which is a fairly simple procedure. That is my understanding of basic user problems when it comes to connection, wifi is usually a secondary consideration, ethernet the main consideration.

#15 Re: Other Issues » ecryptfs-utils » 2020-05-04 12:01:13

Ok thanks for that suggestion ralph and nixer i will give it a  "go" wink  I would rather have something in the apt repos than have to mess about building software from source.

#16 Other Issues » ecryptfs-utils » 2020-05-03 13:14:59

Replies: 3

Ive recently discovered this software on another platform and wanted to use it on my devuan installation but unavailable in the repos, after some reading it seems systemd is potentially the cause. I just wanted to know if anyone here using devuan beowulf has been using this utility successfully ? Archlinux says that systemd is a potential issue to its use also.

Warning: Unfortunately the automatic unmounting is susceptible to break with systemd and bugs are filed against it.[2] [3] [4] [5] If you experience this problem, you can test it by commenting out -session optional in /etc/pam.d/system-login. However, this is no solution because commenting out will break other systemd functionalities.

Some back info. … bug=928956

considering the below script or else just use the git branch of ecryptfs-utils as im more familiar with this. … cd1d80d506

#17 Re: News & Announcements » Beowulf Beta is here! » 2020-05-03 11:37:59

I tested out the latest netinstall amd64 iso dated 26/4 and not sure if i missed a step or stuffed up the step, but it seems the installer completely misses dpkg-reconfigure locales. Had to manually fix this once installed to disk.

#18 Re: ARM Builds » ascii installer-ARM64 question » 2020-04-28 16:12:27

I could not tell you differences in the images hosted to those that are built via arm-sdk. Give it a go, spend a some time educating yourself on the subject matter.

I know alpine linux has ready images for raspi3 and instructions to create said images with a persistent installation. When i get an rpi3 i will probably be doing a lot of testing, but for systemd free i believe alpine linux might trump devuan all things considered.

#19 Re: ARM Builds » ascii installer-ARM64 question » 2020-04-28 11:44:54

Sorry i should have pointed the link to the correct sdk which is arm-sdk, its a fairly simple process as long as dependencies are met. I managed to do the live-sdk awhile back but will try the arm-sdk tommorow when i have some spare time up my sleeve.

This will build you a image for use on a rpi3

#20 Re: Devuan Derivatives » Star 2.1.0 - Distrowatch review » 2020-04-28 06:37:18

Congrats, just read the review, sounds like a good distro for a beginner and experienced alike.

#21 Re: ARM Builds » ascii installer-ARM64 question » 2020-04-28 06:24:38

Bit of a miscommunication here i think. Im fairly certain those images are devuan ascii only for the raspberry pi not raspbian images.
I think the live sdk will source those files from the link in your op, not 100% certain. Im might give this a try myself as im thinking of getting an RPi3 to use as a netflix box.

#22 Re: ARM Builds » ascii installer-ARM64 question » 2020-04-27 14:24:13

Ok so found some rather old arm64 embedded images that are still available, but from 2018. … /embedded/

#23 Re: ARM Builds » ascii installer-ARM64 question » 2020-04-27 14:03:23

I installed raspbian many years ago on one of the rpi2's i think. From memory its a process of flashing the filesystem onto an sd card. Take a look at the lakka documentation, very similar. I haven't researched how devuan does it as i dont have an rpi anymore. … g-methods/

edit: looks like you would need to build your own image via simple distro kit?

#24 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Conky on-screen formatting/layout » 2020-04-14 04:51:56

I forgot about hwmon inside conky so you could just use hwmon inside conky to get the needed formatting and it will be better than piping commands via sensors, awk and fmt. Just check in /sys/class/hwmon for the correct outputs as per below conky commands.

Core0:+${hwmon 1 temp 2}°C      Core1:+${hwmon 1 temp 3}°C  |
Core2:+${hwmon 1 temp 4}°C      Core3:+${hwmon 1 temp 5}°C  |

#25 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Conky on-screen formatting/layout » 2020-04-14 00:43:07

fmt is the command you want.

This is how i do commands for conky sensors, you may need to play around with the fmt (format) values and the awk values.

sensors | awk 'NR==3{print $3} NR==4{print $3} NR==5{print $3} NR==6{print $3}' | fmt -20

You dont need cut or grep commands, awk can do all the hard work itself.

edit: and the way you want it formatted should be below command.

sensors | awk 'NR==3{print $1,$3} NR==4{print $1,$3} NR==5{print $1,$3} NR==6{print $1,$3}' | fmt -30
