Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Great work stanz! big_smile

I have it installed on a partition. Great and lightweight system without much pre-installed software.

Ring is an interesting addition...I had never heard of it until now.

Thanks so much for helping spread the "Devuan word" to more users! smile


I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Veni, vidi, vici vdevuaned. I came, I saw, I Devuaned. wink

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Thank you MiyoLinux!

I started this 'hobby', just to have my system on a disk- to reinstall when I broke it! tongue

Awesome to hear you installed it! I am relieved to know it worked - whew! yikes
You...fsr and refracta made this all possible.
And your mixes - Voo-du and other derivatives, offered good examples to follow!

Keeping the base system lite, leaves room to introduce other awesome packages,
like 'Ring' and 'i2p'.  You've done the same!!

Thanks for telling us to, Make It Your Own...so I did, Made It My Own!  smile

I couldn't help it...I had to spread the Devuan word & iso's on the i2p 'dark web'  LoL
Just natural, to wanna talk about what works and has a kewl community of participants!
cool

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Made a change & correction:

Tor Browser: I Left 'default proxy settings', so user can surf web - without starting i2p-router.
Palemoon: See Next Post! ...as i2p uses palemoon at router startup.

Switched-out -- 'Ring' for 'OnionShare', because I didn't test if Ring works with i2p proxy! yikes
(I'll bring Ring back in basic-mini)

32bit release coming soon! big_smile
(do I need version release numbers now!?? yikes )
asta...

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

:: Important FYI Update Notice ::   I got it now, ~Test - Check it - Test, test, test again!

I found out Palemoon's Network Proxy Settings, do not get included in the iso!
You'll have to Manually adjust Proxy Settings - yourself, for Palemoon to use - i2p proxy & work!

palemoon-proxy.png

Palemoon: Check - 'Manual proxy configuration'
- HTTP Proxy: 127.0.0.1  Port:4444
- SSL Proxy: 127.0.0.1   Port:4445
- FTP Proxy: 127.0.0.1   Port:4444
- SOCKS Host: 'empty'       Port: 0
- Check - 'SOCKS v5'
- No Proxy for: localhost, 127.0.0.1
-- Nothing else is checked--
- Shut-Down Palemoon Browser- start i2p-router - Palemoon opens, - enjoy anonymity!

An update made to downloads links..
We got a 'working' link at 'pcloud'.  smile
and,
32bit release coming -very soon!
(...I guess I do need version release names/numbers now!?? yikes

I think your work with mini-i2p-mimo is absolutely fantastic for people who want more security and anonymity while online. Thank you! smile

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Figure out where the proxy settings are stored, and we can probably adjust the snapshot excludes file to keep them.

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Hello fsmithred...
Yep ~ my thoughts also, as I figured I tweaked the exclude.list - a-tad much! smile
The only file I found (prefs.js) with adjusted proxy settings (in the build system - well, all my systems),
/home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/6bctxfis.default/prefs.js

I found my old addition, that gave palemoon it's "first run" instance, for the new user - also 'excluding' that prefs.js file!
This made that happen:
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/*

My correction needs to include that '1' file - 'prefs.js', while excluding "5 other 'p' files & the remaining files,
plus the 3 folders.. - for that purpose (if possible!).
I'd like to exclude for sure:
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/places.sqlite  #and save 10MB's.

Your technique on excluding everything in /var/log looks use-able, but tricky for my mind. hmm
Tweaked example, excludes anything beginning with "p" (and the one I'm trying to include)
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/[a-o,A-Z].*
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/q-z].*

Then somehow, narrow it down to...move into second letter?
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/[pa-pl].*

Ok, thinking too much -- time for a scotch...be back tomorrow.
Thx and asta`la-way`go...

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

Here's an example from 'man rsync showing how to keep one file and remove everything around and above it'

+ /some/
+ /some/path/
+ /some/path/this-file-is-found
+ /file-also-included
- *

I think you can do it like this:

+ /home/*/.moonchild_productions/
+ /home/*/.moonchild_productions/pale_moon/
+ /home/*/.moonchild_productions/pale_moon/*.default/
+ /home/*/.moonchild_productions/pale_moon/*.default/prefs.js
- /home/*/.moonchild_productions

Or, you could probably do what the snapshot excludes file does with ~/.mozilla - exclude Cache and the sqlite files, and let everything else stay.

- /home/*/.mozilla/*/Cache/*
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/urlclassifier3.sqlite
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/places.sqlite
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/cookies.sqlite
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/signons.sqlite
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/formhistory.sqlite
- /home/*/.mozilla/*/downloads.sqlite

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

There is a place Pale Moon browser default preferences can go.

/usr/lib/palemoon/browser/defaults/preferences/distro-prefs.js

but that's also for when I built the dpkg... It appears to search for all *.js files in that directory.

You would use contents similar to:

pref("general.warnOnAboutConfig", false);

So for your release, you could make sure you have the right proxy attributes defined in a prefs.js file for that directory. Beware! The proxy settings probably span multiple config entries, especially if you use the checkbox for "Use for all protocols."

And a reference I have commented in my prefs.js: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cu … autoconfig

Now, these settings can be overridden by the users, but if they delete their customizations (by removing the entries in their own prefs.js, as opposed to blanking out the values for the entries) it reverts to the distro-defined options here.

Re: [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release:

man rsync  --That was one of the best 'man' page reads, I've had!..
Working on 1st cup of coffee here...
This worked out the long way...so to say. And I'll re-visit rsync's example, thx fsr - for including that!

yep~

# and exclude anything else beginning with "p"
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/bookmarkbackups
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/storage
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/[a-o,A-Z]*
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/[q-z]*
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/permissions.sqlite
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/persdict.dat
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/places.sqlite
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/places.sqlite-shm
- /home/*/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default/places.sqlite-wal

Since I'm working with cd's here, getting back that "+10MB's", really made the difference!

I'm really glad MiyoLinux caught that!! That little convenience for user's, makes a difference.
And to..

I'm gonna look into that also!
I'm only concerned with having proxy settings in place, so user's just start surfing. (reason Tor is using it's own)
If the user chooses to adjust proxy settings after that (as done in the past), no problem!

Thanks for the assist!! smile
asta,
