Well...guess I was wrong about the 64 bit booting up at 101 MBs of's climbed all the way up to 102... tongue  LOLOLOLOL!!!

If anyone has installed this on a computer with wireless, please let me know if you experienced a pause in the boot sequence (while it was searching for eth0) after installation. As I mentioned, I'm almost sure that I fixed it so that it doesn't have that pause, but I can't test it myself. Thank you. smile

Here's a link to the 64 bit version. This is the one that I need the most help on.

Some here know the details, but I no longer have a 64 bit computer with wireless to do test installs on. So...

...if anyone has a spare partition on a 64 bit computer with wireless internet, and you don't mind installing this. please do. My main concern is if (after installation) the boot sequence pauses while it's searching for eth0 if using a wireless connection. I'm pretty sure that I've taken care of that, but I have no way to test it. I did fix it on the 32 bit version, and it no longer hangs during the boot process.

Thank you for any consideration. smile

Oh...make sure your adblocker is turned on. This file is coming from MediaFire... tongue … 180425.iso

Sometime later this week, I will "hopefully" be posting links for .isos for the "normal" MiyoLinux based on normal, I mean they are Openbox panel switcher. These will be "testing" .isos. I've pretty much gotten rid of the bugs, but I'm still working on the delay during the boot sequence (AFTER installation); in which, there is a delay while it's searching for a connection to eth0 if a user is using a wireless network. The fix is quick and easy after installation, but I wish I could head it off at the pass so that users don't have to take care of it themselves. Nothing I've tried up to this point has stopped it.

The .isos will contain all of the MiyoLinux accessories (except for the panel switcher). There has also been a few changes to make the system a little lighter. On my test machines, the 32 bit boots up at 68 MBs of RAM, and the 64 bit boots up at 101 MBs of RAM (your usage may vary)...not all machines are created equally. LOLOLOL!!!

My preemptive thanks to anyone who may try these out when I make them available.

I always verify the md5, sha1, and sha256 sums when I upload to SourceForge (or anywhere else). I've personally never had a different resulting checksum that varied from those produced from the build. My error was in making the checksum file. I somehow copied the wrong checksums into the file when creating it.

Geesh...I wonder how many folks may have been deterred from installing this particular .iso due to my poor oversight...

I hope this is the proper place to report this. The checksums for the file Miyo-XTRA-Jessie-64bit-20180120.iso do not match. I've downloaded the file three different times and I keep getting the following sums:

md5       587675f6947aa086394085488844ae72
sha 256   6c6c214b09fef868ee49e1c0df6915afc827756d803821a7aa6878463e1c15e2

On the checksum file they are listed as:

649ca81770ece7e7b8aa85bfeeabf3d7 - md5sum

Is this just a mistake on the checksum file, I hope?

Hi Ron. Welcome!

First...I'm sorry for any grief this caused you. I'm not sure how it happened, but it is a mistake that I made in putting the wrong numbers in the checksum file. The correct md5 and sha1 are given on Sourceforge by clicking the "information" icon (on the far right) next to the file. The sha256 isn't given on Sourceforge, but mine matches what you posted the download is good.

Second...thank you for pointing this out! I'll fix the file on Sourceforge.

Writing this from the installed system, and free -m is 58 MBs of RAM used. big_smile

I know that different computers give different usages and outputs...but that RAM on this old computer is just stinkin' awesome!

I know nothing about Fluxbox, so this will be a treat to explore. Thanks again wdq!

#9 Re: Devuan Derivatives » FluXuan Linux » 2018-04-21 14:37:03

You're very welcome! wink

Well...after finally getting it downloaded...(my internet kept going in and out)...

...all that I can say is...WOW!!! I'm writing this from the live session, and my free -m in the live session is 72 MBs of RAM used. smile

Gonna install it on an extra partition to see if that RAM usage is even lower. wink

Fantastic job wdq!!!

FluXuan...what a great name!

Downloading it now. I'm really looking forward to trying this out since I've never really given Fluxbox a go. Thank you for making it available! smile

#11 Re: Devuan » ParrotSec OS, 'considered', switch to Devuan » 2018-04-19 14:35:39

On my phone, so I'm doing this from memory...might miss something. tongue

I made an entry in my openbox menu for Spacefm as root...with gksu spacefm as the command to open it.

While in spacefm as root, I just right-click a file and choose to open it with leafpad. That's just the way I like to do it.

Have you checked the Permissions of the file(s)? I think that's at the bottom of the menu when you right-click a file. I've had to change several files' permissions that way to add write to them.

Regarding mounting devices...all I installed was spacefm and udevil. USBs mount automatically and open automatically in a new tab. smile

MiyoLinux Philosophizin'...

When contemplating this or that, always be aware that this may not correlate to that; therefore, that isn't necessarily this in the grand scheme of things...and at the end of the day, this and that don't matter, because in the realm of this, that is always speculative when compared to this.

This is a true story...

I made "Dean's List" each quarter while in college (when there were still quarters instead of semesters). The following quarter after I was finished with college, I received a letter stating that I had made the "Dean's List"...even though I wasn't in college any longer.

Beat that! tongue

I believe Star and Crowz use the Debian installer. I'm not sure how modified the installer is. I could be wrong, but I think Star doesn't include contrib and non-free...but don't quote me on that. tongue Same with Crowz.

#22 Re: Devuan » contrib and non-free repositories should be disabled by default » 2018-04-15 14:54:55

Here are my results.

I used the 32 bit netinstall .isos of both Jessie and Ascii. I again used the Expert Graphical Install. During both installations, I chose NOT to include non-free and contrib.

After both installations of the base system, I checked the sources.list with nano. Both installations resulted in...the first line only had main. The lines for security, updates, and backports all had main and non-free. Contrib wasn't included in any lines.

Miyo, have you seen the question about non-free in the ascii installer isos? If so, which iso did you use? Thanks.

No sir; I'm not familiar with the question. Here's all that I know...

1. In BOTH the Jessie and Ascii installers, all that I've ever used is the netinstall to install the base system and build from there...
2. In BOTH the Jessie and Ascii installers, I'm given the choice to include non-free during the installation while using the "Expert Graphical Install" option. I always choose to include non-free, so I can't answer as to whether not choosing that option works as far as not including it in the sources.list.
3. In BOTH the Jessie and Ascii netinstallers, I DO KNOW that including "backports" works as does the option to NOT include "deb-src" in the sources.list.

If I have time tomorrow, I will try a basic installation with both Jessie and Ascii...using the "Expert Graphical Installation" to see if choosing NOT to include non-free works.

Sorry that I couldn't be more help now.

#25 Re: Devuan » contrib and non-free repositories should be disabled by default » 2018-04-14 22:40:05

I always use the "Expert Graphical Install". It allows the user to choose whether non-free is included. Granted, I haven't tried it without including non-free, so I can't say as to whether that option works in the Expert install. I do know that choosing to not include "deb-src" in the sources.list does including "backports".
