Enjoying EasyOS 1.0 (similar, but different, to Puppy Linux).

Runs from a squashed filesystem (sfs), with a folder as the save area layered on top of that. Includes tools to make sfs copies of that save area, so you can use those to quickly/easily roll backwards/forwards to any desired snapshot.

Image

Includes 'containers' (Xephyr and pflask (chroot, capabilities dropped etc.). So even though it still runs as 'root' (as per Puppy's), the root inside a container is heavily restricted - as good as a restricted userid. But totally avoids having to enter passwords (that otherwise could be eavesdropped).

Loads of things included in the core system, LibreOffice, Scribus, Gimp ...etc. (and lots of useful small utilities). All within a 400MB sfs (I remember the days when getting even just a libreoffice sfs to be much under that was a achievement).

OpenBSD -current running the new dwm version (6.2, with attachaside and this patch for the status bar), slstatus is showing the load average over the last minute, the battery charge level and the date & time:

Image

The xterm on the left has vim open showing config.h for dwm, the two on the right are running top(1) & systat(1) (with the incomprehensible[1] "buckets" view).

[1] To me :)

Try this:
Code: Select all
# apt install scrot
scrot

Then post the image, it will be stored in the $PWD from which the `scrot` command was run.

Hmm, OK, well I have a head cold at the moment :mrgreen:

Anyway the only thing we're really missing is your screenshot...

Does Enlightenment still pulsate? That always put me off.

5MB vmlinux, 12MB initrd.xz, with capabilities support (capsh), tmux, mc (file manager/text editor), sc-im (spreadsheet), lynx (browser), dropbear (ssh), fbcat (screenshot of framebuffer), fbpdf2 (pdf viewing), calcurse (calendar). All net connected with tmux loaded at startup.

Image

Nice for quick bootup, and for routing all http/gopher/message boards/gaming through ssh (to sdf.org).

I used EasyOS 1.0 as the base (vmlinuz/initrd) that includes squashfs functions (so can mount and switch-root boot a main X/gui desktop if needed; Could even pull down the main squashed filesystem from a server before switch-rooting into that).

Nice for a change to 'browse' around without all the advert-bloat of javascript etc.

Personally I like to run tmux with a single window per program and I've set the prefix key to backtick (press it twice to print a backtick such as in a script (executable quote)). Others like to split a window down into panes and zoom/restore those as desired. I also have next tmux window set to F12 and new tmux window set to F11, as that sits better with mc that uses F1 to F10. Backtick is certainly better than the default tmux prefix key combination of ctrl-b IMO.

I've kept the modules lean, primarily just sky2 for my hardware ethernet connection. No sound modules included so playing videos/music isn't available. Adding sound modules would 'bloat' it to around twice the size.

initrd.xz was created with extreme compression (-e switch), which for the kernel to boot also requires the --check=crc32 xz switch/parameter (otherwise on bootup it crashes). Around a 40MB non-compressed initrd.

Devuan live ISO image:

No systemd programs are running at all, very impressive 8)

I've made it a bit more pretty and configured the fonts correctly :)

It's a very nice distribution but I prefer OpenBSD for my non-systemd needs :)

Are you sure libsystemd0 is not installed? Or have Devuan finally managed to get rid of it.

Ah, good catch.

I've just installed Devuan:
Code: Select all
root@shinken:~# apt policy libsystemd0
libsystemd0:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 232-25+deb9u8
  Version table:
     232-25+deb9u8 500
        500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii/main amd64 Packages
root@shinken:~#

It's not installed currently but that system was laid down with debootstrap and I haven't even booted it yet, I will post back with a scrot once I get the desktop up & running and we'll see if it needs to be installed for that.

EDIT: the libsystemd0 package was installed with the kernel. So it is needed then.
