* Determine KGEN properly so that it works for 32-bit Slackware as well. Eric Hameleers2016-02-271-3/+3
| | | | Thanks to SangDae YU for pointing it out.
* Better safe than sorry. Eric Hameleers2016-02-271-1/+1
* Some small improvements for the harddisk installer. Eric Hameleers2016-02-241-1/+1
* Define KVER and KGEN at the proper location in the script. Eric Hameleers2016-02-241-0/+4
* Slackware Live Edition: version Eric Hameleers2016-02-241-1/+1
* Add 'setup2hd' - this script will install the Live OS to local hard disk. Eric Hameleers2016-02-241-1/+36
| | | | | | | | | | The 'setup2hd' script is a modified version of 'setup' in the Slackware installer, taken straight from the initrd. The SOURCE selection has been removed since the script knows where to find the Live media. Except for the actual extraction of Slackware Live content to your hard drive, the other hard disk installation steps are unmodified from the stock Slackware installer.
* Fix fontconfig. Eric Hameleers2016-02-241-4/+4
* Really start Konsole with a login shell. Eric Hameleers2016-02-221-0/+6
* Make this chroot code look easier to interpret by the human eye. Eric Hameleers2016-02-221-11/+11
| | | | | | The script was mixing relative and absolute paths which is confusing. In the chroot, we do not have to work with relative paths as is the case with some original Slackware scripts.
* Fix the flow when rsync-ing a remote repository. Eric Hameleers2016-02-161-2/+6
| | | | It is a requirement to have the Slackware mirror available locally in advance.
* Add the liveslak documentation to the ISO image. Eric Hameleers2016-02-161-0/+3
* Enable more customization: configure your own LIVEDE. Eric Hameleers2016-02-151-2/+23
| | | | | | | | A new sample configuration file 'make_slackware_live.conf' shows a commented-out example of how to use the variables LIVEDE, SEQ_CUSTOM and a function "custom_config()" to create a Slackware Live variant which is not covered by the available variants SLACKWARE, XFCE, KDE4, PLASMA5, MATE or CINNAMON.
* Download packages from rsync mirror if local repository is empty. Eric Hameleers2016-02-141-3/+24
| | | | | | | | | This is for package lists in "pkglist/" subdirectory where a 3rd party repository is the package source. If the pkglists/*.conf file defines a rsync mirror URL in variable SL_REPO_URL, then instead of aborting with an error when the local repository directory (SL_REPO) is empty or non-existing, the packages will be downloaded from that mirror before continuing.
* Allow other people to add their own custom skel*.txz archives. Eric Hameleers2016-02-131-2/+5
| | | | | | | | | Anything matching ./skel/skel*.txz will be extracted into the Live ISO's "/etc/skel/" directory by the "" script. This allows other people to add application presets for the "live" user account. Feature request by Schmatzler for Cinelerra-CV.
* PLASMA5: Do not show the blueman applet, Plasma5 has its own BlueTooth widget. Eric Hameleers2016-02-131-0/+3
* Make X Keyboard configuration work properly. Eric Hameleers2016-02-091-1/+4
| | | | | | - fix detection of german (de) keyboard layout to configure Compose Key, - actually use field #6 of the languages file (X Keyboard layout & variant) when generating the grub and syslinux boot configuration files.
* Copy files from /etc/skel _after_ they become available. Eric Hameleers2016-02-091-5/+5
| | | | | | | This block of code was moved up as part of an earlier attempt to group the code in more closely-knit blocks. See commit 4c08b1a2caae4319cd4b97a99a5c387ae86e5fdb . However, it was moved to far up, so we need to revert.
* If ALSA pipes into PulseAudio, configure a fallback using "sysdefault". Eric Hameleers2016-02-071-0/+7
| | | | | | | Or else there will not be sound on first boot. Not so important for Slackware itself, but a Live distro run from CD or DVD will never have sound. Thanks to USUARIONUEVO on
* Slackware Live Edition: version Eric Hameleers2016-02-061-1/+1
| | | | Contains bugfixes for the Beta 5 release (0.5.0) prior to public release.
* Handle in/exclusion of Nvidia drivers more reliably. Eric Hameleers2016-02-061-27/+14
* liveinit: use MARKER instead of INITRD as prefix for message display at boot. Eric Hameleers2016-02-061-0/+37
* Slackware Live Edition: version 0.5.0 (aka Beta5)0.5.0 Eric Hameleers2016-02-041-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Milestones reached: - Option to use a loop-mounted file for storing persistence data. When using '' to copy the ISO content to a USB stick, use the new '-P' parameter to create and use a container file 'persistence.img'. Note that the existence of a directory 'persistence' in the root of the Linux partition of your USB stick still takes precedence over the file 'persistence.img'. So be sure to remove that directory first, if you want to start using a loop-mounted file for persistence. - New 'toram' boot option (add the word to the syslinux or grub boot commandline) allows you to run the Live OS completely in RAM. If you are booting from a CDROM, it will be ejected at the end of the boot process. A USB stick can be removed manually after booting Slackware Live Edition. Further interesting updates: - A new boot parameter 'blacklist' allows you to blacklist certain kernel modules while booting. Some people need to blacklist the 'nouveau' module for instance. Example: add "blacklist=nouveau" to the syslinux or grub boot commandline. Multiple modules can be specified, separated by commas. - The XDM login screen now has a button "console" which lets you drop to a console login if you have no need of a graphical login or don't want to start an X Session (relevant for the XFCE and MATE variants). And many other small improvements/bugfixes to the scripts as well of course.
* Cosmetics: better grouping of code; additional comments for better readability. Eric Hameleers2016-02-031-28/+45
* Do not run the risk of creating a dangling symlink. Eric Hameleers2016-02-031-1/+1
* Don't abort if the udev rules file is not present in the initrd. Eric Hameleers2016-02-021-1/+1
* Get rid of udev errors about obex-check-device on boot. Eric Hameleers2016-01-291-0/+4
| | | | | | | | The mkinitrd script adds /lib/udev/rules.d/60-openobex.rules to the initrd image, but since the rest of the openobex package is not added, this results in a "error: obex-check-device not found". We do not need bluetooth stuff in the initrd anyway, so we remove the rules file manually from the initrd until mkinitrd gets fixed.
* Slackware Live Edition: version 0.4.0 (aka Beta4)0.4.0 Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-1/+1
| | | | | Milestone reached: - add LUKS-encrypted /home/.
* Add support for a LUKS-encrypted /home in the USB Live version. Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-3/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | Using script's new '-c' parameter, you can define the size for a container file in the root of the USB stick's Linux partition. - The container file will be loop-mounted and LUKS-encrypted and the Live OS will mount the filesystem inside the container on /home/. - The LUKS passphrase will be defined when executing the '' script. - The original /home content of the ISO will be copied into the LUKS-encrypted container during execution of the '' script. - If for whatever reason you do not want to unlock & mount the LUKS container during boot, you must add the boot parameter " luksvol= " to the syslinux or grub commandline.
* Ensure that rc.pulseaudio is not started. Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-0/+1
* Readability changes to various comments in the script. Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-6/+7
* Enable mouse support in runlevel 3. Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-0/+21
* Fix kernel version detection. Eric Hameleers2016-01-151-3/+5
| | | | | The new kernel has version number '4.4.0'. Yet the kernel package names, like the kernel source tarball, has a version '4.4'. We need to compensate.
* Do not overwrite /etc/asound.conf Eric Hameleers2016-01-151-2/+6
| | | | | | | Slackware has added PulseAudio plus a /etc/asound.conf file, which configures all ALSA output as an input to PA. An ALSA softvol pre-amp is therefore no longer needed and our Live script should not overwrite the /etc/asound.conf file in the OS.
* Add 2016 in the copyright line. Eric Hameleers2016-01-151-1/+1
* VERSION bump from Beta 3 (aka 0.3) to 0.3.8. Eric Hameleers2016-01-141-1/+1
| | | | | | Roadmap: v0.3.9: adding LUKS encrypted /home v0.4 (Beta4): LUKS home setup stable enough for public consumption.
* Do not add Nvidia proprietary drivers to the Full Slackware ISO. Eric Hameleers2016-01-101-4/+10
| | | | | | | | | | The customized ISOs (Slackware plus 3rd party software) can include the proprietary drivers, but the Full Slackware ISO is meant as a demo for official Slackware and therefore should not include 3rd party packages. If you respin the SLACKWARE ISO, it is of course still possible to add the binary Nvidia blob yourself by copying the graphics/*nvidia*.szx file to the 'optional' directory yourself. Nothing else is needed, it will 'just' work.
* Fixes for SDDM and X keyboard mapping. Eric Hameleers2016-01-101-0/+18
* BIOS (syslinux) and UEFI (grub2) boot: enhance the experience. Eric Hameleers2016-01-101-2/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - generate the grub fonts (.pf2) ourselves instead of using the Slackware-provided grub font file. - expand the help text about the boot parameters. - show the liveslak version number in the boot menu. - remove the 'boot any OS' menu item in Grub because it never worked for me. - add a bit of Grub help text at the bottom of the screen. NOTES: - I do not like the way how I had to implement the Grub2 help menu, it is ugly. Perhaps the text artefacts and understrikes are caused by the fact that the grub console has to paint on top of the graphical boot menu? - In any case, the grub console (the black rectangle in the middle) has its coordinates hard-coded in the grub2 source so it is not configurable. - the grub fonts look better than in Beta3 but I am still not happy with them. Research on Grub boot menu enhancements done by Didier Spaier.
* Added support for separate configuration of X keyboard layout/variant. Eric Hameleers2016-01-051-11/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | New parameter for the boot commandline: xkb=[language],variant Examples: # Only specify a Xkbvariant, and inherit the console keyboard layout in X: kbd=nl xkb=,sundeadkeys # Define a 'french swiss' layout in X, independent of the console: xkb=ch,fr Two new keyboard/language choices have been added which use this functionality: - german swiss - french swiss (requested by Niki Kovacs). New: if a non-US keyboard layout is selected, the US layout will be added as a secondary layout. Toggling between the two layouts is possible using the Shift-LeftAlt key combo. Also new: the RightAlt key is now defined as the Compose Key in X. Meaning, the combo <RightAlt><"><e> will generate a 'ë character'.
* Use more compatible isohybrid commandline parameters. Eric Hameleers2016-01-011-16/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | This modifies Didier's original patch with a simpler set of parameters. His recommendations are based on these threads: The new parameters allow the big ISOs to be booted in VBox. Patch proposed by Didier Spaier.
* Generate our own Grub font files, to fix the bad font rendering at UEFI boot. Eric Hameleers2016-01-011-1/+9
| | | | | Slackware's shipped Grub font is 19 point in size which does not scale well. Research and proposed patch by Didier Spaier.
* Add themed GRUB2 configuration for UEFI boot. Eric Hameleers2015-12-241-20/+99
| | | | | | | The GRUB2 theme is similar to the Syslinux theme used for BIOS boot. However, the GRUB menu also allows the user to select a timezone, whereas due to the limitations of syslinux, you'll have to edit the syslinux commandline to change your timezone there.
* Add Mate repository info if we are adding slackpkg+. Eric Hameleers2015-12-241-3/+4
* Start Konsole with a login shell. Eric Hameleers2015-12-241-0/+9
| | | | However... does not seem to work for non-US language choices.
* Stamp a VERSION number in the ISO, and to the USB partition. Eric Hameleers2015-12-241-7/+13
* Some small tweaks. Eric Hameleers2015-12-231-2/+3
* This marker is no longer used. Eric Hameleers2015-12-231-2/+6
* Add a softvol pre-amp to ALSA - some computers have too low audio volume. Eric Hameleers2015-12-231-0/+16
* Enable NFS client support if possible: Eric Hameleers2015-12-231-0/+3
* Copy our skeleton configuration correctly to the live user's $HOME. Eric Hameleers2015-12-231-1/+5
