Well, I was hoping to include the new Control Center and Live Keyboard Layout applications in a straight MiyoLinux Ascii release (just openbox/tint2...no panel switcher)...to coincide with the Devuan Ascii release.

...but I might go ahead and release it under Jessie...'cause that's the way I roll... tongue

Hey! I know some folks from Papua New Guinea!

Do they have a keyboard layout...  -_-

DOH! I used LXDE's keyboard layout switcher as a guide...so you'll have to blame them. wink

Thank you ma'am. smile

I have to admit...this thing is stinkin' fun! LOL!

Here...I'll quickly change over to Arabic to show what it'll do...

If your Arabic, please don't be offended...I used my US keyboard to type, "Hello, how are you today?"...but I don't know what it spelled out in Arabic!

Here's a little Greek for you...

Ου! Σηατ αμ Ι δοινγ?!?!?!?

I said, "Oy! What am I doing?!?!?!?" Whether that's what it said in Greek, I don't know, because I'm still using my US keyboard. LOLOLOL!!!

I've kicked the idea around about having a repository, but I've opted not to for several reasons. The two biggest reasons are...

1. It's about Devuan.
2. If anything ever happens to me for whatever reason, folks will still be able to update/upgrade their system since it's all Devuan repositories. smile  Especially now that I'm installing Obmenu-Generator through git, and fixing it is so easy now if a user dist-upgrades.

I have thought about making a Github/Gitlab/Gitsomething account or a "Repository" folder on Sourceforge so that people could download and install some of this stuff onto their existing installations.

I use the Xfce power manager in MiyoLinux, but I have to install the "suspend" package too if I want the Suspend option.

Finished up the Live Keyboard Layout Switcher today. Got all the flags looking good, and it works like a charm. A user will be able to instantly change keyboard layouts on the fly. This will really help folks running a live session...which was my purpose for building it. smile  It could also benefit installed systems if a user needs a different layout at times...and you're not limited to only four layouts! big_smile  Try all 94 of 'em if you want! LOL!  Changes only remain for the current session (or changing it back during said session). The default keyboard configuration returns after logout or reboot. So, when you click a layout, the system automatically adopts it; therefore, one can click away.

Not sure how many hours I put into this, but it was less time than all of the searching I did trying to find something like this for Openbox. I tried one in a previous release, but it was a little buggy.

So...I "made my own". LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!  tongue

I got the patched kernel yesterday with a plain-old apt update; apt upgrade - didn't need dist-upgrade.

I will readily admit that I can't remember the difference between using apt vs. apt-get. Might oughta make a note-to-self for myself on that. smile

So...I wonder if that's the reason why you got it without dist-upgrade.

When I first ran a regular upgrade, I received one upgrade that was named eerily similar to the patched kernel. Without thinking, I thought, "There it is!" and went ahead and upgraded. About a minute later, it hit me...HEY!...that wasn't a kernel upgrade. tongue

So...I did an apt-get dist-upgrade and then got the kernel.

Thanks to MIYOLinux and fsmithread posts I've learned some things.

I wonder what are the differences from MIYOLinux to a "plain" Ascii.

Regards to All and expecially to MIYOLinux and fsmithread for their good job.

Hi onekk, I'm glad Miyo is working well for you.

I'm not on a Miyo Ascii right now, or I would check, but I don't believe that I installed anything in Miyo Ascii that wasn't in Devuan Ascii other than my custom window themes (and I think I installed some icons which aren't part of Ascii). Everything else is simply configurations that I made to Devuan Ascii. The menu also came from Devuan Ascii...I just configured the Openbox menu to use the Xfce applications menu. So with Miyo Ascii, you are actually running a preconfigured Devuan Ascii system. wink  All that I did was just put the Openbox system together for users. smile

If you're experiencing slow updates, you should change your sources.list according to the directions on the Miyo Wiki...

I don't think I'll have time to make a proper post of what's new, so I'll just do it quickly.

Miyo-XTRA is still Miyo...a minimal and base system that allows the user to install what they want/need on their system. Those familiar with MiyoLinux will know basically what is included...not much of nothin'!

In "addition" to not much of anything tongue , there's no archive manager installed in this build so that users can choose the one they want.

Here's what's changed...

1. Using the amprolla repositories.
2. The Miyo Accessories now open as GUIs...or as I call them...SGUIs ("Simple"GUIs).
3. The XTRA means you get "extra" panels to choose from...tint2, LXPanel, Xfce4 Panel, and I've chosen to use Docky instead of Plank for the dock.

The panel switcher now changes panels with one click, and it overwrites the autostart file to use the chosen panel upon reboots. smile

4. Added a ... I don't know the proper terminology for it ... "desktop loading sound" that will play when the desktop first loads up. For those who don't like it or want it, it can be disabled in the autostart file. Not sure why anyone wouldn't want it though, because it's stinkin' awesome! LOLOLOLOLOL!!! big_smile
5. The latest version of obmenu-generator is the Openbox menu. Now if a user upgrades to Ascii, they can regain the menu with only two terminal commands...plus, I left everything in from the git build...after all, git and build-essential are handy for a lot of people to have anyway, and they didn't make the .isos that much larger.

Other than those items and a couple of new wallpapers...it's the same old Miyo. wink

The Release Notes give much more information and detail...please make sure to read them.

Have fun, and "make it your own"!

Grrr...busy day today. Hope to give more information on the new release later. Until then, here's a short video of it if anyone is interested... tongue

#21 Re: Other Issues » Meltdown and Spectre » 2018-01-06 13:45:17

I don't think it's available in Jessie yet. It is in Ascii, but I had to do a dist-upgrade to get it...then again, I'm on AMD. tongue

Perhaps this will shed more information?

WOW! Has anyone tried this? I just did! smile

Devuan Jessie + Openbox (64 bit only)

It has GREAT theming and uses Obmenu-Generator too. smile

It booted up at around 165 MBs of RAM in the live session.

It comes set with the German keyboard layout by default. I changed it to the US layout in the live session by opening the terminal and entering...

setxkbmap -layout us

...use your own country's code in the last part of that command. wink

I had to pull up a picture of a German keyboard layout on my phone to see where the "y" and the "-" were located for the command big_smile

GREAT JOB!!!

It's almost midnight here, so I'm about to call it a night; however, I wanted to let folks know that they're available for download. I'll give more information tomorrow. They can be downloaded from here...
