Arch assault

If you get chance pop over and check out archassault

www.archassault.org

Have tried to help out with bug reports for iso, would be nice for any archbang users to check it out try and help out. Am going to add a wiki page at some point as regards to adding their repo.

Re: Arch assault

Is there a simple way to remove all the arch assault packages. I think I would rather be without them.

Re: Arch assault

I don't understand.  OBmenu-generator is found in AUR, why do we use ArchAssault?  My "old" installation of AB does not have OBmenu-generator installed --- is this an error?

I successfully installed archbang-150210-x86_64.iso on an old laptop but after reboot, the pipemenu or static-menu fails --- is this related to OBmenu-generator? Perhaps I missed something because I removed ArchAssault repo and used AUR.

Re: Arch assault

I too am a little worried, for security reasons, as to why we need to depend on an "unofficial" archassault repo? -especially for somethiong like "OBmenu-generator", ... ?
On the other hand, as mentioned elsewhere on this forum,  you can easily "comment-out" archassault repo, and obmenu-generator from AUR, will still update, ...
I'm sure it's fine, jus sayin.

Re: Arch assault

Will say that building packages from aur too install into ArchBang is the biggest pain in ISO building, i would drop broadcom support in an instant.

A user can simply disable archassault repo should they desire, as for being unofficial...well so is aur. Arch does not support any of the pkgbuilds held there.

Re: Arch assault

OK, I think I understand.

I keep tar.xz (and sourcefiles)  of Packer and Broadcom-WL, previously downloaded from AUR; so that I can makepkg and "pacman -U packer.xx.tar.xz [,,, after AB-install,  "pacman -Syu", "pacman -S base-devel"].

My method will not work for first-timers. But one alternative is to put AUR/ArchAssault sourcefiles into the iso and let users makepkg and pacman -U [if they know how].  So many options makes this a great Linux OS platform !!

Thank you MrG.
