Re: New Release

Congratulations, Mr. Green for finishing this new release; let's hope it won't be troubled by bugs meaning new update-malware from the Arch devs and will be usable for a few weeks....

Re: New Release

Only did a live session, the blinking "loading kernel"  took a very long time; the whole booting process seems considerably slower.
I miss the possibility to eject the liveCD when rebooting (shutting down?).

For the rest everything seemed to work OK. Didn't try an installation.

Re: New Release

just tested on virtualbox and everything worked perfectly.
Partitioned manually (swap /boot and /)  and used grub.
The installation bar went rapidly to 95% and stayed there for
a couple of minutes (maybe a newcomer will mistakenly think that
the installation froze).
Anyway i didn't have any real problems...
Great work guys smile

Re: New Release

@pablokal You will only notice boot speed increase on an installed system. As we now have haveged and pacman-init during booting live this does slow everything down. Got no idea as of yet on how to add eject function with systemd as yet something that will need looking at..

New progress bar function works out number of files to be copied then shifts them one by one to new install drive, this does mean that smaller files/directories are moved first then larger files last [which take longer]. Will add a warning just to be safe.

Re: New Release

While I was installing the archbang-2012.11.01-x86_64.iso image on my laptop yesterday, the message displaying "Critical temperature reached (100 C), shutting down" appeared on my screen and then my laptop shut down. This issue was repeated at a later try. I can't remember the exact moment when it happened, but I think  the installer was carrying out the install system step. I've never experienced this kind of problem during any distro installations. 

As a result, I returned to the archbang-2012.10.19-x86_64.iso image and now have it installed on my laptop. But the pipe menu for Applications didn't work as expected, so I solved the problem by changing the pipe menu to "openbox-menu lxde-applications.menu." And now everything works fine. Thanks.

Re: New Release

Installed in virtualbox, ok, no problems.

Partitioned myself with cfdisk, just / and swap.

When done, didn't ask to remove the virtual iso, son did a shutdown to unmount it.

Looks good.

Re: New Release

My first post, but an Archbang user for over a year. I've regularly updated in that time and had no problems. My question is to check whether this new installation cd has gone completely over to systemd or is it a mix of the old Arch scripts and systemd.  I am thinking that if it is just systemd it would be worth doing a fresh install and save me the hassle of working through the wiki article to change to systemd.

Thanks

xerberix


Edit.  I'm not a systemd fan but it seems that the Ach devs are going to force us to use systemd whether we like it or not.

Further Edit.  Just seen the news item on the front page which answers my query.

Re: New Release

Hello Archbangers!

I did a clean installation of the AB! 1212.11.01 64 bit, everything went pretty smooth, I followed Mystique's, daedfall's and Mr.G's comments per this thread: http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=3439

Manual partitioned my HDD sda1 /root sda2 /home (NO swap) updated my mirrors and system and so far so good....Thank you Mr. G! (let me know if those configs. worked for you?)

Cheers and have a great week-end

Re: New Release

@lrcaballero I love those configs have given my food for thought. The look of crunchbang blended with the speed of Arch it would be amazing.

Did not get any real feedback from testing builds, so this thread has highlighted issues that need to be addressed. Each build takes around twenty minutes so it is a real pain if you find a minor problem done the line.

Once you install make sure you read doc in archbang wiki, you can improve boot time by disabling pacman-init [then removing haveged package]. This will mean you *may* need to set up pacman keys but it is not that difficult to do.

Re: New Release

@ Mr. Green

I will have more time tonight after work to play with my new install....and will report any issues I encounter for sure...so stay tune! (like if you don't right? hahaha).

One thing I did notice after updating my system is that If you want the visual Pacman back in your terminal eating powerpills while downloading packages instead of the default # then add ILoveCandy under Misc options in your /etc/ pacman.conf so it looks like this per this thread by ArchVortex: http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=2268

Re: New Release

Used the x86_64 live medium and also noted slow bootup times, but no
harm done. Some thoughts:

- The desktop background fails to scale correctly on my laptop. The
  blackout theme caused some confusion at first in that I couldn't tell
  if a lower application menu bar was actually there. This is inevitably
  going to sound biased, but IMO the "All Good Things Start with a Bang"
  background seems to work best.
  - I would also prefer you change the default OB color scheme to Crux
    and Real Milk; the default dark scheme is a great notion, but provides
    a compromised user experience in practice. NetworkManager just
    doesn't agree with it, and there are various other problems that I'm
    not remembering right now but caused me to switch over to a lighter
    theme. I feel a simpler theme would help out noob users. The Crux +
    Real Milk combo has worked tremendously well for me for a long time
- About OpenBox: I much prefer the split up desktop cross-section
  style of lower application menu bar. Makes it easy to see what's open
  on every desktop. Not sure if the change to viewing only one desktop
  at a time was a dev decision or if OpenBox defaults to that now.

I am 100% for a fork of Arch completely free of systemd. I'd like
to know how I can help out, and also more about what the potential
problems and benefits of doing so would be, outside of ditching the
Sith Lord. Personally my computer has performed worse since switching
to systemd. Now, I haven't been able to isolate it specifically to sysd
because I can't boot the linux-lts kernel properly, but there's been
a noticeable amount of overhead on my machine. Regardless, I feel like
Arch was cooler with Initscripts and one rc.conf to rule them all.

Can a project dev estimate the time and total costs of a complete switch
over? How can I get involved?

I have noted comments about theme, maybe a wallpaper change is in order. Splitting tint2 to cover both desktops seems a reasonable idea.

Re: New Release

I totally loved this release. So far it performs very nicely.
I selfishly would like a smaller ISO. I installed from a USB.
I switched to gdm to be able to use other desktop environments like lxde and xfce4.
The Openbox desktop implementation was super gorgeous.
And did I mention that this distro flies.


I know gdm pulls some gnome stuff. It is simply easier to work with for me.
Archbang is again my favorite distro with this release. I dare say the openbox implementation is the best I have ever seen and worked with.


Awesome job.

Re: New Release

I think you probably give up too soon, booting  in the live mode takes a long time with this release.
Just try "xorg autodetect" and don't give up too soon.

I let x86_64 blink for 15+ minutes and it still does not progress, it is locked up, have to hit the reset button. The i686 boots right up.  The x86_64 boots ok on my laptop.  Could the nvidia dirvers be a problem.
Also, on this machine when boots i686 there are some errors about not loading amd micro code, but it continues just fine, don't know if that matters to the x86_64 problem.

it's using systemd, not initscripts so you'll have to use a service file.

thanks for the link. I used this systemctl enable service_name. Question: by giving this command will daemon start as root or myuser? Sorry if it is a stupid question. I am archbang newbie.

Re: New Release

Systemctl should also tell you why it failed

$ systemctl status <service>

If you want something to run as a regular user, you should probably use the openbox 'autostart' script.

An easy "alternative" to systemd (while still using systemd) is to have it launch a script of your choosing (like, say /etc/rc.local) and then just add stuff you want in there as a pseudo rc.conf file

Re: New Release

any difference between between openboxs script and systemd? which should i prefer? I read the manual and I think I can start it with systemd --user. I will try this a couple hours later and post the result.

Re: New Release

systemd is a lot more complicated but it can also do a lot more.  For example, you could only start your daemon after the sound device has successfully been initialized and then restart it if it fails, but only 5 times and then give up.

The openbox autostart script runs when start up openbox so it only works when X launches - but the trade off is the processes will run as your user and it's very simple to change

As for which you should prefer - there's no right answer for every process/daemon.  You should do what is appropriate for the app.

I would guess that mpd should be done from systemd and mpdscribble through autostart - but that is a guess

@once can you just check for me, menu.xml see if this line is there....

<menu id="apps" label="Applications" execute="cat ~/.cache/abapps.xml" />

openbox-menu in iso is working fine, you may need to edit menu.xml

no, its
<menu id="apps" label="Applications" execute="cat ~/.cache/applications.xml" />

btw, forgot to pacman-key --init after pacman upgrade, what should i do?

Re: New Release

edit menu.xml to abapps.xml should be good to go, read up wiki on pacman-key

Re: New Release

I just wanted to report whether the archbang-2012.11.18-x86_64.iso image installation was successful on my laptop.

As you guys already said, it was necessay to fix the pacman-key and menu.xml, and I also solved the problems by following the related comments. Except for that, I have no problems with the testing image. This time I could change the default dark theme to a light theme completely by using LXAppearance. FYI, I chose the Mist theme in the widget tab and ticked "Use customized color scheme" in the color tab. For this reason, this testing image is the best that I have ever installed.  Thank you for the iso image.

11.18-x86_64 good install, i am still using grub from an existing 32bit archbang install from 2010.

But i have read the wiki for pacman-key and I do not see what I should do. Can you lead me in the right direction. I just wanted to install ssh but every package fails to install because it is unknown...
[EDIT]pacman -Syy[SOLVED]

Re: New Release

@boomshalek with a new install you will need to bring mirrors up to date before using pacman. pacman-keys should be good to go.

Could you please EXACTLY name the commands needed with pacman-key because I have now completely messed-up the system editing pacman.conf to SigLevel=Never and it still gives me errors when trying to install packages

Re: New Release

Installed in no time - no issue other than application menu not working
I had to guess & find the location of menu.xml... found it here: ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml

Best Arch based distro users can have - great work!

Re: New Release

Did put a warning on forums about openbox-menu, mostly happens after first update, should be fixed in future releases. Not that it affects live version. Welcome to the forums...

Sorry Mr. Green. I have overlooked your answer ...
Here is my pacman.conf:

#
# /etc/pacman.conf
#
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#
# GENERAL OPTIONS
#
[options]
# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
#CacheDir    = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log

# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst   = pacman
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
Architecture = auto

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
#IgnorePkg   =
#IgnoreGroup =

#NoUpgrade   =
#NoExtract   =

# Misc options
#UseSyslog
#UseDelta
#TotalDownload
CheckSpace
#VerbosePkgLists

# By default, pacman accepts packages signed by keys that its local keyring
# trusts (see pacman-key and its man page), as well as unsigned packages.
#SigLevel = Optional TrustedOnly
#SigLevel = Never

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local
# keyring can then be populated with the keys of all official Arch Linux
# packagers with `pacman-key --populate archlinux`.

#
# REPOSITORIES
#   - can be defined here or included from another file
#   - pacman will search repositories in the order defined here
#   - local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files
#   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages
#     have identical names, regardless of version number
#   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture
#
# Repository entries are of the format:
#       [repo-name]
#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
# uncommented to enable the repo.
#

# The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
# repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately
# after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.
