New FaunOS Live Arch-Based DVD/USB Distro Now Available

Hello fellow archers,
We have just released the latest version of FaunOS. Since this version of FaunOS is the answer to the most important question in the universe, we have named it "fortytwo."
FaunOS-fortytwo contains many improvements over previous releases and more packages (575 total). Improvements, in no particular order, include:
- Improved wireless support, both wlassistant and knetworkmanager are now included.
- Improved automatic X configuration with 3D acceleration.
- Better boot splash support. We have moved to fbsplash which seems to work pretty consistently and has lead to a faster boot time.
- A new boot option for quickly booting into a console-based system with no X windows.
- A new boot option for machines that hang when booting from DVDs using piix modules.
- Ability to save FaunOS session back to a multi-session DVD-+R or DVD-+RW.
- Permanent Arch Linux Installer using archin.
- Permanent FaunOS Installer for creating additional FaunOS USB drives from within FaunOS and for performing a "frugal" install to hard drive. Frugal install (not to be confused with Frugal Linux) installs the compressed FaunOS files to a hard drive permanently leading to an "unbreakable desktop" meaning the end user can totally ruin everything at runtime. To revert back to the starting point all the user has to do is reboot the machine and everything goes back to normal since all changes happen in ram, unless the FaunOS session is saved at boot time.
- FaunOS is probably the only live distro that can perform two kinds of installations.
- New added packages include: wlassitant, madwifi, firmware packages for ipw2100 and ipw2200, ndiswrapper, lynx for text-based web browsing, and kmobiletools accessing phone books and other information on mobile phones.
- All packages have been upgraded to the latest from the Arch repos as of today, 8/27/2007.
- And, most importantly, a new logo.
We have also decided to stay away from the evil 2.6.22 kernel which seems to have created more bugs and headaches than introducing new features, no flame war intended. The latest 2.6.21-faunos kernel is based on the stock arch kernel with the addition of the fbsplash patch from genpatches.
There are those people that may think FaunOS is bloated, but we like to think that it is a muscular and strong live Linux distribution, thanks to Arch. Of course keeping with Arch's KISS principal, we have tried to make FaunOS simple and easy enough for anyone to use.
You can get the latest version at:
http://www.faunos.com/downloads/faunos-fortytwo
A new wiki has been created at http://wiki.faunos.com. Feel free to contribute and change the wiki as you wish.
Our support and discussion forums can still be found at http://forum.faunos.com
We can definitely use some mirrors for our downloads. We will also be creating a torrent shortly and can use some seeders. Please let us know either here or in the FaunOS forums if you can help in any way.
We'll see ya at the FaunOS forums!
So long and thanks for all the fish,
Raymano

We have simply used larch but with some additions and changes:
- FaunOS uses a slightly modified version of larch with the added ability to build a live system from a preinstalled partition on the harddrive.
- Added fbsplash capabilities to the initial initrd images and kernel.
- Applications on FaunOS are preconfigured and integrated to work out of the box.
- Some kernel specific modules/packages have been compiled for the FaunOS kernel, e.g. ndiswrapper.
- All services are pre-configured to execute out of the box.
- All available codecs are included.
- 3D desktop using beryl is preconfigured to run on intel based graphics cards and some ATI cards with a click of a button.
- Network management is simplified with use of knetworkmanager and wlassistant.
- Storage are is included on the FaunOS device to share files with other platforms.
- R/W access Windows parititions by clicking on an icon in KDE.
- Common grub booting on USB and DVD. With multiple boot options for graphical and non-graphical system.
- FaunOS's own mkxorgconf utility was added (using hwd) for better automatic configuration of graphics cards. This includes setting up AIGLX.
- Easily performs frugal install of the live FaunOS system to hard drive, including saved overlays. This was not part of the original larch scripts.
- Use of sudo to allow the user to perform certain system wide configuration tasks.
- Integrated flash java and mplayer plugins for Firefox.
- Ability to put a computer running FaunOS into sleep (suspend-to-ram), remove the FaunOS media, boot and work on other computers with the FaunOS device, return to the original computer, insert the FaunOS device, turn on the computer and continue working where you left off. This in not possible with latest Arch Linux because of the kernel.
- And we believe, most importantly, you can hand a FaunOS DVD to a user with no knowledge of Linux and say go try this out.

  • Announcement : New SPS Patch Release (v 6.0.3) Now Available

    A newer release of Service Provisioning System (version 6.0.3) is now available for download on sunsolve
    The Release Notes for this release are available here and is a good place to start.
    {color:#0000ff}*You are strongly encouraged to go through the Release Notes AND the README instructions of all the patches thoroughly before starting your patch installations.*{color}
    The following are the key changes that were incorporated in this release.
    1) A fix in the SPS transport layer code was implemented to provide performance optimization of deployment jobs over a raw, SSH or SSL connection. Specifically, customers using an SSL connection between MS and the RA/LD nodes can observe noticeable performance improvements while deploying large payloads.
    2) A fix was also added to correct the default database encoding for customers who want to use extended ASCII character sets. This would not only facilitate clean database migration between 5.2 to 6.0 of any UTF-8 characters, but also ensure data integrity on fresh 6.0 installation. It's strongly recommended that customers take necessary steps to apply this fix on their SPS 6.0 installations.
    3) Certain GUI related      bugs were fixed and some missing functionality was added back.
    4) It is to be noted that this is a cumulative patch on top of the earlier patch release version 6.0.2. Hence all the bug fixes that were delivered with the 6.0.2 patch are also accumulated into the 6.0.3 patch
    5) Response time of GUI login validation has been improved.

    another option would be to make either the n1sps export not writing explicit end tags
    <element />
    instead of
    <element></element>
    or
    making the import / schema a bit less sensitive about whitespace within elements. The current bug, that you cannot export the xml, reformat in netBeans and then re-import is extremely annoying.

  • New styles from the TUMI Alpha Bravo Collection: now available at Best Buy

    If you’ve been reading the Best Buy Plug-In Blog for a while now, you’ll probably be familiar with TUMI. They do a lot of stylish, well-made, super functional luggage pieces … but this fall, they’re coming out with a collection that’ll change the way you look at TUMI for good.

    I was able to place an order for the new 3DS XL MM Edition via bestbuy.com. My order shows processing so all seems well. My question is in regards to when this will ship? I usually use amazon.com for online preorders as they are shipped so that they arrive on release day. Is this the same with bestbuy.com? If not, would it be possible to switch to in-store pickup so that I can get the item on release day? Thanks.

  • Arch-based medical distro

    I started a simple project to build an arch-based distro for medical professionals
    The base install is ready and my own-developed simple medical apps are in development to be included...
    I was searching for more apps to include (medical image viewer, electronic medical records) and I found a lot of options, and have no idea what to include and where to start.. I never used any of them, (still a medical student), and I was wondering anyone could help in bringing birth to this distro?
    Suggesting apps, or maybe helping in building and packaging apps not available in the official repo or the AUR? or even only testing?
    Any interest?!

    hadiyazdi wrote:I started this to learn more about archiso and then after having my custom arch image ready, I had this idea in mind... I guess I was a little over enthusiastic
    No worries - far better to be occasionally over enthusiastic, then never enthusiastic enough.  There simply may be more productive ways to channel that enthusiasm: more productive both for you, your would-be users, and the rest of the arch community.
    First, let me highlight the real problem with spin-off distros.  You certainly could put together an installation iso with all the right stuff for a medical professional to put an arch-based system on their computer and start using it.  But are you going to commit to maintaining it and doing all the hard work that really comes with maintaining a distrobution?  If not, the best case scenario is that your distro would be a passing fad, and you'd get (probably less than) your 15 minutes of micro-fame.  The more realistic scenario is that your distro would be just a fart in the wind - and as a result, so too would be your enthusiasm for contributing in other ways.
    In contrast to all this, there are very productive ways to channel any such enthusiasm.  A majority (if not all) of the great things about archlinux have come from one person scratching their own personal itch, then sharing the products with the community.  This way they are giving back to the community - but it is not purely selfless: they are appreciated by the community.  How small would be your target audience for the new distro?  You'd tell a few collegues, and maybe one or two of them would share it with a few of theirs ... pretty small.  But if you see software that could be useful to medical professionals that is lacking in archlinux and instead you make/improve AUR packages, or even set up an unofficial repo with the precompiled binaries, then any medical professional who searches the AUR can find your products.
    Further benefits of this approach are that now your contribution will likely last much longer.  There will be more users to benefit from it, and more to appreciate your contribution.  And when you inevitably get too busy to maintain a few of the AUR packages, or the repo, there will be a much larger pool of potential volunteers to take over - thus preserving the 'legacy' of your contribution.
    I suppose this all lends itself well to a parable of sowing seeds on different types of ground.  Suffice it to say that being a successful farmer may have more in common with being a successful archer than one would first suspect.
    And in contrast to my initial answer of "No", I would be happy to help you get PKGBUILDs working for all the tools you would like to make available in the AUR or in a custom repo.  I also suspect many others here would be much more welcoming to this as well.

  • Making arch-based distro

    Hello.
    I started to make Arch-based distro. I have fully installed Arch + Openbox.
    I have a couple of questions:
    - How can I make an ISO from installed system I have?
    - I haven't installed drivers for my graphics because if I respin it into a new system, users with nvidia graphics, for e.g. will involve with problems then. How can I avoid that, i mean, is there a script that will recognize graphics and download drivers for it?
    That's all for now. Arch with Openbox and some setup rox.

  • Booting Arch-ISO from USB-Stick in UEFI mode fails

    Hi there,
    I'm running an Asrock H77M-ITX UEFI mobo. On this system I've already installed Arch on a Samsung 830 SSD (GPT formatted) - but in BIOS legacy mode because I've written the Arch-ISO image with "dd" to an USB-Stick (and UEFI boot mode wasn't even presented at boot).
    Out of curiosity I've re-formatted the stick and copied Arch-ISO following https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Un … B_from_ISO.
    Now I could start the ISO in UEFI mode, but it failed to start gummiboot with the "No loader found. Configuration files in \loader\entries\*.conf are needed." error message, concerning a problem with gummiboot.
    Following some advice on the forum, I did this:
    - install refind-efi 0.4.7-2
    - copy /usr/lib/refind/refindx64.efi to [USB]/EFI/boot and renaming it to bootx64.efi (i.e. replacing the original bootx64.efi from gummiboot)
    - Create a new file in the same directory ([USB]/EFI/boot/) called refind.conf
    - Add this to it:
    textonly
    scanfor manual
    menuentry Arch {
    loader /arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz
    initrd /arch/boot/x86_64/archiso.img
    options "gpt loglevel=7 add_efi_memmap none=UEFI_ARCH_x86_64"
    With this I can launch Arch-ISO from the USB-Stick in UEFI mode and I can choose Arch from rEFIND. Then Arch-ISO starts booting but it always stops at the same point with this message:
    sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] No Caching mode page present
    sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
    sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
    ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/' device did not show up after 30 seconds ...
    Falling back to interactive prompt
    You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
    sh: can't access tty: job control turned off
    [rootfs /]#
    sdb is the USB-Stick from which I start Arch-ISO. Again - I didn't use dd to write the ISO to the stick.
    Maybe this is pretty easy to solve, but I have to admit that I'm somewhat stuck

    WonderWoofy wrote:See what the difference is between archiso and archboot maybe?  Seriously, have you made any effort whatsoever?
    Of course. Read:
    The "Main Page" ( https://www.archlinux.org/ ) states:
    "You've reached the website for Arch Linux, a lightweight and flexible Linux® distribution that tries to Keep It Simple."
    "Keep It Simple". Yeah!
    In line with that, the "The Arch Way" page ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/The_Arch_Way ) states:
    "The following five core principles comprise what is commonly referred to as the Arch Way, or the Arch Philosophy, perhaps best summarized by the acronym KISS for Keep It Simple, Stupid."
    The ArchWiki ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/ ) links to several other pages, such as these:
    The "Forum Etiquette" page ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Forum_Etiquette ) states under "Ineffective Discussion":
    "Arch is a Do It Yourself community" and "treat others as you would be treated; respect them and their views". I am very much a "do it yourself" person -- that's why I like The Arch Way. I also go by the Golden Rule stated here.
    Now, everyone is a newbie at some time. I and other posters here are obviously newbies with respect to ArchLinux. Even experts were newbies at one time. Newbies, by definition, do not necessarily know what they're doing, or where to find information. Hence, Arch's "Beginners' Guide" and such. Hence, posts on this board from newbies asking for help.
    As regards initial installation of ArchLinux, and consistent with the above, the FAQ ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/FAQ ), under "Q) Arch needs an installer. Maybe a GUI installer", states:
    "A) Since installation doesn't occur often (read the rest of this article to know more about what rolling release means), it is not a high priority for developers or users. The Installation Guide and Beginners' Guide have been fully updated to use the command-line method. If you're still interested in using an installer, consider using Archboot."
    So the basic installation instructions explicitly state that Archboot is not needed.
    The "Installation Guide" ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_Guide ) says nothing about either Archboot or Archiso.
    The "Beginners Guide" ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide ) says nothing about either Archboot or Archiso.
    The "Archboot" page ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Archboot ) is consistent with the above information, because it states:
    "Archboot is a set of scripts to generate bootable media for CD/USB/PXE.
    It is designed for installation or rescue operation."
    The "Archiso" page ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Archiso ) states:
    "Archiso is a small set of bash scripts that is capable of building fully functional Arch Linux based live CD and USB images. It is a very generic tool, so it could potentially be used to generate anything from rescue systems, install disks, to special interest live CD/DVD/USB systems, and who knows what else."
    So the pages describing both Archboot and Archiso clearly state that these tools are oriented towards already-existing installations -- even though it seems that they might be used, in certain circumstances, for initial installations.
    I happen to be very new at playing around with installing Linux distros (although I've used Unix/Linux as a regular user for more than 30 years), and am brand new with respect to ArchLinux. I only began playing with it this past Saturday. So I would expect a bit of useful help as opposed to "RTFM!" I will soon get past the need to RTFM for basic tasks, but I have a way to go.
    The fact is that for me and a number of other new ArchLinux users, the installation guides simply do not work. C.f. my post https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=153170 . I've done a lot of googling as well as searching the archives on this board, and others have come up against the same show-stopping installation problems that I have. I and others have posted to several recent threads on this board, trying to get past the problems, so far with no success.
    Now, the.ridikulus.rat had written:
    "You guys are using Archboot's kernel options for Archiso. Thats the issue in both the cases."
    Given that neither of these sets of scripts were used by me or swordfish, this comment is not useful.
    Given the above, can you or anyone else tell us what Archiso or Archboot might do to help us with our installation problems? Also, can you tell us how we, as newbies, ought to have found out how these might help?

  • Btrfs Arch-based rescue images

    From linux-btrfs mailing list today :
    http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.fi … btrfs/3150
    Hello everyone,
    As Linus discovered, the new btrfs disk format in 2.6.31-git can be
    problematic if your FS gets forward rolled to the new format and you end
    up bisecting back to the old code.
    It would also be nice to have a way to run btrfsck on a root filesystem
    and do other assorted tasks.  So, I'm making live boot usb images for
    both x86 and x86-64.
    They should have enough to get your filesystems mounted and they also
    include git, gcc, make and enough to compile the kernel.  These are
    based on the Arch 2.6.30 distro with just the btrfs newformat code
    added.
    I've got the 32 bit image uploaded, and I'll queue up 64 bit overnight.
    If anyone is feeling brave, just dd the image onto a usb stick and
    rescue boot away.
    They work on both of my test boxes, but a little extra testing would be
    nice.

    The issue is this one: it often happens that automatically network disconnects from the home's WiFi network, not only when the computer is locked, but even if I'm surfing the internet or just using it.
    Maybe this will help someone understanding something more specifically:

  • Bodhi Linux Arch-based build, need dev(s) and supporting team members

    Hello forum,
         First, apologies if I have posted this topic in the wrong thread. I am writing to inquire as to whether or not there are any other Arch users and/or developers that would be interested in assisting Jeff Hoogland with his new distro, Bodhi Linux, and working on an Arch-based build. Bodhi Linux is a Ubuntu-based distribution that uses Enlightenment as the desktop environment and is focused on promoting the light weight, beauty, and speed of Enlightenment while remaining minimalist. Jeff has plans to release a Fedora-based version of Bodhi in the future, as well as an Arch-based build, but he would need some help, specifically with the OS disc itself. He can work on the Enlightenment side of things. Is there anyone interested in working on such a project? If you haven't heard of Bodhi Linux already, please visit http://bodhilinux.com/

    Greg_S. wrote:ANOKNUSA, you think it's wasted energy? "Throw-away distro" is it?
    Sorry if this seems unduly harsh.  I wasn't trying to troll, but merely reiterating what others here have said.  The Bodhi Linux developers are certainly within their right to direct their efforts in any way they wish.  However, they have two serious conceptual flaws they need to consider and overcome:
    1)  Are the devs planning on releasing both x86 and AMD64 versions of Bodhi?  Even if not, this still means that once the project gets going, they'll need to build the entire E17 compilation three times a week; if so, they'll need to do so six times a week.  This is very tedious and time-consuming for a group of people working in their spare time, with no financial backing or chance for compensation.  Naturally, it leaves very little time to maintain the rest of the repos, discuss/research/pursue further development, track bug reports, etc.  The latter is worth noting, since
    2)  The devs will need to keep track of bugs and development roadmaps for three different distros, each with their own kernel patches, boot/init protocols, etc.  They'll need to build separate packages and "tune" separate repos for each spin, provide a forum(s) able to handle questions regarding each spin, with devs and moderators specializing in each spin.
    This is an awful lot of work to simply "showcase E17 and give it the 'love' it deserves."  The Enlightenment devs are the ones providing the weekly snapshots on SVN; the Bodhi devs just package them.  If promotion of Enlightenment DR17 is the ultimate goal, it could be better accomplished by establishing and promoting a PPA for Ubuntu, a PKGBUILD or PUR for Arch, and a (name of unofficial repo here) for Fedora.  This would make an up-to-date version of E17 readily available, and require only promotion and packaging on the part of the maintainers.  Bug reports could be sent directly to the Enlightenment folks with no need for an intermediary, as well as to the appropriate distro, rather than sending them to Bodhi which must then check to see if the problem is one extant in the base distro concerned before applying efforts to fix the problem.  Just think: you get a bug report and begin to reseach it, only to find out it's a problem you inherited from Ubuntu which in turn inherited it From Debian [unstable].  Where does that leave you?  If you do manage to fix the problem, then the only decent thing to do would be to share whatever patch/code changes you made with the folks upstream anyway.
    I ain't trying to be a killjoy here, and I'm definitely not trying to discourage the commitment and spirit of contribution the Bodhi folks obviously have; just the opposite.  Besides, it does look like you found at least one Archer willing to help you guys, so whatever ends up happening, I wish you all good luck with it.

  • Making episode based DVD in Premiere Elements?

    Sorry, but this isn't a Photoshop Elements question, but there's no Premiere Elements section.
    I notice all the DVD templates are for movies, that is they have a play movie button that plays ALL scenes, and then a scene menu separate scene menue that allows you to start the movie from specific scenes.
    I want a way of making an episode based DVD, where there is no single play button on the main menu, nor is there a scene menu, but intead is a series of buttons on the main menu each of which plays a separate video, and each video played stops at the end of that video, and does not procede to play any of the others. I would actually like to make it replay a given video when it gets to the end (allowing for indefinite running of a particular video), instead of stopping and going back to the main menu.
    If it is possible to do this in Adobe Premiere Elements, please let me know. Thanks.

    Thanks guys for your help. However I discovered that I don't need to buy new software to accomplish this. I found that there a powerful customization technique I can use for fully editing the DVD menus in an Adobe Premier Elements DVD menu template/preset.
    I discovered that the DVD menu templates, while not editable in Premiere Elements, can in fact be edited in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, as they are just PSD files. The names of the buttons are layer groups and the specific naming conventions of the layers tell Premiere Elements how to handle them. For example, any button who's graphics are in a layer group who's name starts with "(+^)" is a button that takes you back to the first page of the Main Menu (the quotes aren't actually part of the layer name, so remember when customizing the buttons in Photoshop, to not use those quotes, I just used them to demark the text that appears in the layer name). Any layer group with a name that starts with "(+*)" corresponds to a button that starts playing a video at a Main Menu Marker on the timeline. Any layer group who's name starts with "(+-)" corresponds to a button that causes playing of the movie starting at the first frame (and removal of this makes the DVD behave just like a DVD with a series of TV episodes). Any layer group who's name starts with "(++)" corresponds to a button that goes to the scenes menu (which of course contains buttons that start playing a movie starting at a Scene Marker. And "(+>)" and "(+<)" correspond to buttons on the main menu that navigate go forward and backward through pages of the main menu (or if they appear in the Scenes Menu then they navigate forward and backward through pages of the scenes menu).
