Hello James...

Just how different is it from MiyoLinux - also created with refractasnapshot??

You need to run a MiyoLinux release, any one of them...you'll answer your own question! smile
MiyoLinux is full distro ~ Mine is very minimal, not for the regular user.

..also created with refractasnapshot??

refractasnapshot? ~ awesome tool - of an amazing 'set' of tools...huh?!
I suggest you try at least 3 of them!

OnionShare and Tor can be added to MiyoLinux.

Yep, your right on that one!
MIYO - Make It Your Own - !!
And you can even install them on the new Devuan beowulf beta release! yikes
Don't ya jus` dig all the options..!

before I start distro-hopping.

If I remember correctly, most of Devuan's Derivatives are live media (oh, refractasnapshot!),
which gives the user, the opportunity and time, to try out the whole custom build - without making any changes to the present system on the hard-drive - leaving the user, the choice to install (oh, refractainstaller!), or try another.

Is there a YouTube video on it??

Nope -- nadda, won't happen on anything google...
These builds were made for my personal use, until a good friend twisted my arm, really hard,
and made me share them.
While your on youtube, visit MiyoLinux: Videos page - you'll see difference!

Oh, As far as I've seen, there's only 1 other distribution - trying to have the i2p-router included in their
build, by default. Whonix, if I remember proper...but when we last talked - systemd was giving
them loads of trouble. yikes

I'm also a really bad sales man lol

Happy to hear that ... instead of issues lol
I'm open to reading "after-install" comments too!

Strating on the mini-p2p-mimo_3.0 builds now...  smile

#3 Re: Devuan Derivatives » [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier » 2020-03-26 19:12:43

I got the - 2.1.2_all.deb
Thx for posting the adjustment...I'm starting the mini-p2p-mimo-3.0 build now,
and will post when I get to your updater tweaks! smile

Awesome....jus` awesome!

#4 Re: News & Announcements » Beowulf Beta is here! » 2020-03-26 19:07:51

Wow...that sounds familiar!!
Something new - on a usb burn tho. My usb wasn't affected, just cd burns.

and I won't do a bug report because its easy to fix,

booting up to live, my usb mouse froze.
pulling and re-inserting it fixed it instantly.

I have no such glitches on the hard drive install.
Thanks for reading.

Yep, just running live - not carrying into install.
I don't get it, but now I don't feel alone!  yikes

How would I tweak your notifer to just check once at login?
Thx in advance...  smile

A quick look at mentioned pkgs::

Radare: "free and advanced command line hexadecimal editor", radare2 v1.1.0+dfsg-5, is in our repo's
Cutter: "disconnect routed IP connections", v1.04-1, also in repo's
vscodium: humm, m$ thing? some work on github, I need more info there.

"the collection of wireless tools", is indeed - a collection! Tuff for me to choose what goes in the mix.
Mainly because, I've not been in that 'enviroment' for years, so I dropped my 1st hobby project. smile
I would need some input and advice on pkgs, to come up with a useful system.
"distro"? naaa, just a mix.

Greetings all...

Other than english...
Anyone having troubles setting "locales" or "keyboard-configuration", during installation process?
Do your changes apply, after reboot - as expected?

I was questioned about errors received, concerning the install of:
task-japanese, In our repo's, no issue for me to install.
ja_JP Not in our repo's. End-User choice smile
but --
locales-all In our repo's, brings many "potentially harmful" warnings, needs more research.
I have not continued passed locales-all, and not installed as yet - I don't know enough about this.

Well, I might as well post their commands - it may help..!

sudo cp /home/uname/Downloads/ja_JP /usr/share/i18n/locales/
sudo apt install --install-recommends fcitx fcitx-mozc
sudo  apt -y install task-japanese locales-all

No need to install a "fonts" package? Or even the "task-japanese-desktop" pkg?

research continues.. smile
thx

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!

#21 Re: Devuan Derivatives » [mini-i2p-mimo] New 'Devuan-based' release: » 2019-09-10 06:41:58

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...

:: 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!

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)
