lsblk -plo NAME,FSUSED,SIZE,FSUSE% /dev/sda4 
NAME      FSUSED   SIZE FSUSE%
/dev/sda4 777.4G 872.1G    91%
df -h /dev/sda4
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda4       858G  778G   37G  96% /media/EVO_860

what is going on here?
lsblk says sda4 is 91% full and df says 96% (96% is correct)
and df says 858 - 778 = 37 , which is obviously not true
also the sizes dont match, which is propably a result of the -h flag but they also dont match when i use -H

@ Ozi
I am not familiar with virtualbox and i dont see why it wont show
what happens if you enter the password (root) and enter?
The shutdown option in the rofi launcher should work tho

@alphalpha: Took Michael's Devuan Edition for a test drive "Live" JWM, very impressed with what you have done! I got caught up in it and played around and explored, learned a few things too! cool

I'm guessing or assuming because haven't used polybar before is what you have in Jwm?

@ zephyr
hey nice to hear that smile i thought nobody would even try it
jwm uses its own bar, i3 and bsp use polybar

@alphalpha I also took Michael's Devuan Edition for a test drive using VirtualBox 6.0.14

On shutdown from the Jwm menu, then it just hangs.

xauth: file/home/michael/.Xauthority does not exist

Ozi


EDIT: After checking the home folder I can see that the .Xauthority is there.
I also checked the shutdown menu item in the Jwm menu file. I didn't get a message to supply the password to shutdown.

@ Ozi
as far as i know the .Xauthority file will be created automatically when you login
the shutdown didnt work for you? i will have a look at it later today

maybe you can mount the micro sd on your main computer and modify the /etc/network/interfaces to a static ip and check the ssh server config

as far as i know you cannot use the micro-usb port to connect to your pc
but you can connect a serial cable to the gpio pins and use putty to connect via com port

When I do that (installed from a .deb package) it tells me it detected yt-dl was installed via a package manager and I should use that to install a new version, then quits. It does not update the package!

the "youtube-dl -U" option does not work if you installed via package manager, thats why you should install it like ron said

sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rwx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

#15 Re: Installation » Problem booting encrypted LVM » 2019-01-12 16:54:05

I want to have an encrypted LVM container that contains /root and swap on sda2
and unencrypted /boot on sda1
for encryption i used luks
crypttab looks like this:

vol1		/dev/mapper/grp1-root		none		luks

for installation i used a snapshot from an older ASCII install that i had
with i slightly modified installer script that contains commands for pvcreate, lvcreate etc

i noticed that  /mnt/etc/cryptsetup-initramfs/conf-hook was unconfigured
so i added CRYPTSETUP=y and updated initramfs but its still not working

#16 Re: Installation » Problem booting encrypted LVM » 2019-01-08 21:00:23

Nope i dont get a password request and my volumegroup is not found

Hello friends,

I'm trying to install on an encrypted LVM
installation was ok but after reboot i am not asked to enter the password,
instead i get:
"WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning."
then i end up in busybox

any ideas for troubleshooting?
i already tried

update-initramfs -u

#18 Re: Other Issues » Autorun a script at boot » 2018-11-15 11:25:40

Translate all BASHisms to standard SH because:

I tried it with just

brightness="/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness"
tee $brightness <<< 3000

but that didn't work, i guess im terrible with SH

anyway i solved the problem by changing the rc.local from #!/bin/sh -e to #!/usr/bin/zsh   wink
thx guys

Hey Guys,
i want to run a script each time my computer boots up

problem is since i compiled a new kernel, my screen backlight will go very dark once open-rc starts booting up
i tried the bootloader thing that people suggest on the internet but it only works randomly sometimes

so i wrote this short script that i want to execute with root rights during startup

brightness="/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness"
if [[ -f $brightness ]] && [[ "$(cat $brightness)" != "3000" ]]; then
tee $brightness <<< 3000
fi

i tried to add it into /etc/rc.local but that does nothing...
any ideas how to make it work?

#20 Re: Other Issues » How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved] » 2018-11-14 16:42:42

of course a .zip file is not a .deb file....
you need to build it yourself

first make sure you have the dependencies:
    Python 2.7.3+
    wxPython 3
    TwoDict
    GNU gettext (to build the package)
    FFmpeg (optional, to post process video files)

that would be:

sudo apt-get install python python-wxgtk3.0 gettext ffmpeg git

TwoDict is not available in the Repository so you need to complie that too

git clone https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/twodict.git
cd twodict
sudo python setup.py install

now you have all the dependencies and can build youtube-dl-gui like this:

git clone https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui.git
cd youtube-dl-gui
sudo python setup.py install

now you can run it with

./build/scripts-2.7/youtube-dl-gui

it should also automatically be added to your /usr/local/bin
so you can just type youtube-dl-gui in the terminal to start it

Hello Everyone

I finally found a way to make to make ISO snapshots that can be larger than 4GB.
I had this problem for a long time that i would get an Error during the snapshot progress because i have a lot of packages installed on my system.
I know some folks have had the same problem so i thought i'd share the solution to this.

For this to work one has to modify the xorriso command in /usr/bin/refractasnapshot,
my code may differ from your version, the important thing is to add the -iso-level 3 option

xorriso -as mkisofs -r -J -joliet-long -l -iso-level 3 -isohybrid-mbr /usr/lib/ISOLINUX/isohdpfx.bin -partition_offset 16 -V "$volid"  -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o "$iso_dir"/"$filename" live/ 

and thats all
i now have a 4.2 GB large ISO file smile
