preparing usb sticks from linux
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ works for windows!
Accept iso from local filesystem, need to be tested with the dynebolic iso.
Here goes my notes and progress on dynebolic.
The xorg packages I made require libpciaccess.so from pciutils source. The xorg package contain some build dependecies like python2.6 that need to be moved somewhere else. The bootstrap create a wrong xorg.conf. Most of drivers which use dri are missing some features from kernel, need kernel upgrade urgently.
Links which is a text browser if it cannot find the Xlibs for wich have being compiled to offer X features it will not start and segfault even when the -no-g option is given, there is no work around. Proposal: compile 2 versions one with X support and one without it.Install lynx too. Install firefox 4 and midori/webkit.
Fix tzdata and zoneinfo in the sys. Fix the iso codes in the sys because they are now missing. Add configuration files for zsh and bash. Moving all compiling stuff to devel.dyne and keep the sys.dyne small and slim only with "operational programs". It should be possible to use mods without the devel package.
the ld.so.conf file should not be generated at initrd build time but rather a generated list on boot after all modules have been mounted. I don't understand the icons for the volumes inside the initrd...please explain...anyone...? I would like to have something like "include all files in list" instead of millions loops in one file...and in list an rsync style bin/* sbin/* lib/dyne and so.
upgrade the audio mod.
Clean up old no more maintained games from the game module.
- automatic linking of .pc file in /usr/lib/pkgconfig
- skeleton creation for software module from dynesdk
- layer on top of sys.dyne for avoiding mistakes during modules development
- nfs client in ramdisk
- nfs server in sys
- ramdisk ramfs
- runit init (scripts can still be zsh)
