• antergos :rescue the antergos swiss-knive live-iso


    @joekamprad
    Those two versions of build.sh have changed a lot, it is rather difficult to compare them.
    There are additions and removals of lines, renaming of items, some things moved to another places etc.
    But I try just to replace build.sh and see what happens…
    Didn’t work. :(

    that’s natural… My buid.sh for portergos is also different from the original archiso.

    @joekamprad maybe i’ts easier to start building archiso and then adapt untill look like antergos-iso.
    Do you want stuff like plymouth, lightdm for example? they’re totally unecessary.

  • At least 1 backup tool might be useful like GNOME’s deja-dup or similar.

    I’ve found a Ubuntu’s boot repair tool too, check for more ideas:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

  • @fernandomaroto plymouth is eliminated already… but lightdm seems to be used for creating the Live-Desktop in a way… so yes i think it would be better to use clean ArchIso as we also do not need to show Antergos Desktop, we need to rescue it ;)

  • @joekamprad
    the liveiso can boot directly into the desktop, , so lightdm wouldn’t be needed at att, it’s only something else to load with systemd and increase the chance of something going wrong.

    When i have time i’ll try to build an iso here with gnome using the portergos build, may be usefull…

    true ;)

    i just try to build with archiso…

  • @fernandomaroto setting up GNOME with all this gsettings stuff and extensions is way to much for a rescue-live-cd… as it will be very hard to create custom menu e.t.c. better to go here with openbox or xfce…

  • @joekamprad My vote for Xfce! :)

  • @joekamprad said in antergos :rescue the antergos swiss-knive live-iso:

    better to go here with openbox or xfce

    ok, i agree with @manuel then, xfce4!

  • yes xfce is got my vote too!

    Needs some configuration, but has a common structure to understand and use it…

  • I like Xfce too, it has a good balance between lightness and features, also I tried it with Debian and it was using what… 290 MiB? Something like that. I installed LXDE and LXQt yesterday along with Cinnamon, LXQt is unfinished and I do not recommend yet, and it was using 50 MiB RAM more than LXDE, LXDE 400 MiB, LXQt 450 MiB, but as I installed Cinnamon(which is using 750/800 on average) first probably it was loading unecessary and heavier packages, a clean install with LXDE will be even lighter. But Xfce is also a very good option.

    LXDE is very usable at this point, it even has a GUI Configuration for systemd, I didn’t mess with it but some people might find it useful maybe? Someday I will change a few things there and break everything. :)

  • @joekamprad

    I made a quick list of packages using some of portergos base

    https://pastebin.com/qHszwx1S

  • @fernandomaroto gvfs packages will be needed too

    gvfs-google
    gvfs-mtp
    gvfs-nfs
    gvfs-smb
    gvfs-gphoto2

    Needs to be figured out if they are usefull tohether with thunar…

    Also may to much to install a full xfce with the packagegroups ?

    https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/xfce4-goodies/

    https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/xfce4/

    Antergos have this:

    'evince' 'file-roller' 'gamin' 'gnome-calculator' 'gnome-disk-utility'
        'gnome-keyring' 'gtk-engine-murrine' 'gvfs-google' 'gvfs-mtp' 'mousepad'
        'network-manager-applet' 'networkmanager-openvpn' 'networkmanager-pptp'
        'pamac' 'parole' 'python-pysmbc' 'polkit-gnome' 'pragha' 'qt5ct' 'ristretto'

    Maybe, do you want to remove xfce4-goodies or even just some packages? i’m not sure if it uses that much space also.
    You also need to pick a browser.

    I’ts also possible to install openbox, xfdesktop and xfce4-panel (and some other tools) and load then inside openbox, but that’s too much tweaking for now.

    I guess you could build an iso with xfce4 and one with xfce4 and xfce4-goodies to compare.

  • @fernandomaroto i would be comfortable with midori

  • archiso is more easy to setup ;) …

  • Just came across this thread, and thank you so much😀. I was never able to finish this project, and it always kind of bothered me. It’s great to see that it will now be finished.

    So thank you everyone.

  • @fernandomaroto can you give me a hint on how the liveuser is added on archiso plane?
