Archiso-live 20090612 Release

Changes since last release:

* Using testing so we have kenrel 2.6.30 to test out. Wicd and module-init-tools are not update in this release since of problems with new wicd 1.6.0 working and module-init-tools need blacklist files to have .conf at the end of them.

* I have seen the kernel crash once when testing it on real hardware i think. I couldn’t read the dmesg since the screen just went black to fast to read it . I thought it was the ati driver acting up at first. I tested twice after that with noxconf and without noxconf boot option. It work just fine those times. If you see any crash like that try to see if you get the dmesg message and posted it to the comments. This iso is testing purposes only. Use at your own risk.

* There are not video-drivers module in this release. Couldn’t get catalyst to compile with kernel 2.6.30 anyway. ( The video-drivers module has packages so it installs and setup xorg.conf file with 3d drivers at boot with nonfree boot option. This will not work with this release.)

* Added gecko-mediaplayer to the base modules. This makes apple movie trailers work again.

* Added clamtk for virus scanning windows machines. You will have to download the main.cvd from clamav.net and put in /var/lib/clamav or $HOME/.clamtk/db. I’m not sure which one clamtk looks for.

Everything is up2date as of 5:00 PM EST on 20090612.

Here is the iso, md5, and package list.

  1. Hello I´ve very happy for your work.

  2. Is there any screensaver/lock screen for lxde?

    • @2501
      I think there is a screen lock for gnome or xfce. I don’t believe lxde has screen lock though.

  3. Thanks a lot for your work!! It’s really very valuable to me. Here are some dents tagged as #ArchIsoLive in the identi.ca microblog:

    Some questions:

    * Have you thought in something similar for 64 bits?
    * Would be nice to have some kind of social system to vote for the packages to be included/excluded of next releases. So far your selection is the one that best fit my needs.

    Thanks again,

    Offray

  4. I went back to xfce, it is not a big deal. LXDE does not have all the features that xfce offers.

    So far, I am happy with Arch. I was able to activate my own firewall and other scripts during start-up. It feels good to have control of the operating system and the best of all is that Arch is simple and easy to configure. I haven’t looked back to either Fedora or Zenwalk.

  5. Sabyon Linux is already working on a project similar to Arch which let you build your own Sabayon distro. It seems that Arch approach
    is getting contagious. Arch forever!

  6. I just signed on to do a pacman -Syu with this release and got this error:

    grsync-0.9.1-1 75.2K 176.9K/s 00:00:00 [#####################] 100%
    checking package integrity…
    (19/19) checking for file conflicts [#####################] 100%
    error: could not prepare transaction
    error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
    /lib/modules/2.6.30-ARCH/kernel/fs/squashfs/squashfs.ko exists in both ‘kernel26′ and ‘sqlzma’
    Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

    • @rhomp2002
      You will have to this:
      sudo pacman -Syuf
      The f is to force files to be overwrite if there exist. This is cause sqlzma is more of a hack package for the livecd. You can also uninstall sqlzma since i think your using a normal install now. I think this would do it:
      sudo pacman -Rf sqlzma

      Hope this helps and not brake anything.

  7. Mission accomplished. Thanks.

  8. I got the following error while trying to upgrade:

    checking package integrity…
    (112/112) checking for file conflicts [##################################################################] 100%
    error: could not prepare transaction
    error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

    udev: /etc/modprobe.d/framebuffer_blacklist.conf exists in filesystem
    Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

    Any idea?

    Thank you!

    thanks!

  10. Arch is wonderful!!! I wonder if CRUX works the same way.

  11. I created my own and simple rc.firewall and it seems to work…
    -2501

    #!/bin/sh

    firewall_start() {
    iptables -F
    iptables -t nat -F
    iptables -t mangle -F

    # Setting default policies
    iptables -P INPUT DROP
    iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
    iptables -P FORWARD DROP

    # Basic Firewall
    iptables -A INPUT -m state –state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

    # Allow SSH
    iptables -A INPUT -i eth+ -p tcp -m tcp –dport 22 -j ACCEPT

    # (link 3) throw everything else away
    iptables -A INPUT -j DROP

    # Allow myself to be a non-passive FTP client
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport ftp-data –jump ACCEPT

    # No Telnet!
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp –dport telnet –jump REJECT

    # Otherwise, drop inbound TCP packets with ICMP messages
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –jump REJECT
    iptables -A INPUT -p udp –jump REJECT

    # Report what happened
    echo ‘Firewall rules installed:’
    iptables -L

    }
