Installation / menuentry grub2 isoboot - sparkylinux-2020.12-i686-rescue.iso
« Last post by sparkyfan on December 27, 2020, 04:47:41 pm »
Hello User,

where can i find / get a working Grub2 menuentry for isoboot?

/etc/grub.d/40_custom
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
menuentry "clonezilla-live-2.6.5-21-amd64.iso" {
  loopback loop /boot/iso/clonezilla-live-2.6.5-21-amd64.iso
  linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz findiso=/boot/iso/clonezilla-live-2.6.5-21-amd64.iso toram=filesystem.squashfs boot=live union=overlay username=user config components noswap edd=on nomodeset noprompt nosplash ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param="" ocs_live_batch=no gfxpayload=1024x768x16,1024x768 ip=frommedia i915.blacklist=yes radeonhd.blacklist=yes nouveau.blacklist=yes vmwgfx.blacklist=yes
  initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
}
menuentry "sparkylinux-2020.12-i686-rescue.iso" {
    set isofile="/boot/iso/sparkylinux-2020.12-i686-rescue.iso"
    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz iso-scan/filename=$isofile inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=CorePlus quiet
    initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
}

This menuentry works this clonezilla, the sparkylinux-2020.12-i686-rescue.iso doesn't boot.



The follow links doesn't help me:

https://forum.sparkylinux.org/index.php/topic,5143.msg13535.html#msg13535

menuentry "SparkyBonsai Porteus Boot" {
linux /live/vmlinuz1 from=/ changes=/live
initrd /live/initrd1.xz
}

    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz iso-scan/filename=$isofile inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=CorePlus quiet
    initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
}

Thank you

Can you help me to find a working menuentry?

Hardware / <SOLVED> Read-only USB stick.
« Last post by nemomen on December 27, 2020, 11:04:54 am »
Hello Sparkers,
I have used one of my pen-drive many times without any problems.
Once I noted it had turned to a read-only status, not the folders and/or the files, but the device itself. I have no viruses according to my best knowledge, although it is always updated.
I did not find any working solutions to solve the problem under Windows, none of them worked so far.
Does anyone has any idea how could I clean the read-only attribute under Linux/SparkyLinux?
I have already tried to use the GParted with no result.
I use SparkyLinux Nibiru 5.13 Xfce 64-bit.
Thanks in advance and happier New Year for you all.

0ther / fslint replacement czkawka Hiccup
« Last post by paxmark1 on December 26, 2020, 09:04:54 pm »
If you have used linux for awhile, there are binaries that disappear because they were not updated to needed upgrades in the languages that they were written in.   It is more than time for python 2 to disappear, come July (approximately) it will be gone from stable Debian 11 - Bookworm.

(If you are in Sparky5 most of your binaries come from Debain 10- Buster if you are in rolling - Bookworm 11).  fslint is one of those casualties of inattention to porting to python3.

Elsewhere I see people trying out a new program (written in Rust) called czkawka. Hiccup in english,  funny eh?    I am not going to try it out and take a test spin, Cli (comand line)  ncdu and fdupes works well enough for me, but for those interested in a gui for those sorts of things

https://github.com/qarmin/czkawka

peace out.

Yes, I have been working a little less than 40 hours a week, but that will change again soon and I will mostly lurking.  None of my co-workers near the front lines of Covid in residential work with the mentally challenged  have been afflicted hard, but people do decide to retire early, and very few enter my line of work and stay.

I guess it is testing line, not stable anyway, so...

1. Revert Debian repos from stable to testing:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak
sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list
and paste into the new source.list file:
Code: [Select]
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ bullseye main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ bullseye non-free contrib main
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security/updates non-free contrib main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security/updates non-free contrib main
deb http://deb-multimedia.org/ bullseye main non-free

2. Make sure Sparky repos:
Code: [Select]
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.listpoints to testing potolo:
Code: [Select]
### sparky core repository is used by all sparky editions
deb https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ core main
deb-src https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ core main
### sparky potolo (testing) repository
deb https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ potolo main
deb-src https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ potolo main

Then refresh package list and try to install vbox:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install virtualbox virtualbox-qt

If any problem, past FULL output of all the commands you run at the forums.

I also ran into problems with Virtualbox whilst trying out Bullseye. That's why they call it 'testing' I guess  :)

Although Virtualbox has a slightly more user friendly method of working,  qemu-kvm + virt-manager was where I went after reverting to Sparky Stable. It takes a little bit of learning but is worth the effort.

For me the one big plus is the much more reliable interface with USB devices.

Over in #debian-next in irc they would mention DebFrankenstein and probably advise you to back up all data and re-install.   However this is Sparky.   You should look at your linux skill set.   If you are new or new to Sparky-Debian and apt you might want to go with Stable, Sparky5.   For that I would strongly suggest a full re-install.   Back up, back up , back up. 

If you prefer to  be using the newest programs, etc. you could possibly drop the Debian repos and go with the Niburu repos.    I am going to work.    I would comment out the  unstable Sparky repos, What I post is a fuzzy road map.  Please do not blindly follow my advice.   Others are better at this than me. 

If you ever run straight debian, you will really want to add non-free to main and cotrib.   

I can tell you that Virtualbox 6.1 will work in stable.  My belief is that in the future if I get back to having  time to use Virtual images, that I would go with qemu/kvm as they have matured greatly since 2016.

Can you explain me what version of Sparky or Debian you have been installed?

Code: [Select]
Depends: libxkbcommon0 (= 0.8.2-1) but 1.0.3-2 is to be installedIt says that you have Debian Bullseye but you are using Debian stable Buster repos (and Sparky testing repo before).

When I tried to download and install libqt5core5a with dpkg, I am getting the below error message.

When I tried to install libdouble-conversion1, I got some error messages and it has recommended me to run "sudo apt --fix-broken install". I ran it and then executed "sudo apt autoremove" and then I was able to install libqt5core5a. After this, I tried to install virtualbox with the command "sudo apt install virtualbox-6.1" and I am getting the below error message.

As I said before, the qtbase-abi-5-11-3 package doesn't exist, it's a virtual package provided by other one.
https://packages.debian.org/en/buster/qtbase-abi-5-11-3
Make sure you have libqt5core5a package installed.
