Just did the kernel upgrade and then remastered. All went as expected.

If you have set the ALSA Equalizer as your default audio device, you may lose the ability to control the master volume from the tray applet.
Code:
### these three lines enable the regular sound card ###

#defaults.pcm.card 0
#defaults.pcm.device 0
#defaults.ctl.card 0

##################

ctl.equal {
 type equal;
}

pcm.plugequal {
  type equal;
  slave.pcm "plughw:0,0";
}

pcm.equal{
  type plug;
  slave.pcm plugequal;
}

### these two lines enable the equalizer ###

pcm.!default pcm.equal
ctl.!default ctl.equal

Alsa-master-volume creates a second tray applet that shows Alsamixer set to Card 0. Now you can change the volume while the Equalizer is active.

Remove the fake .gz extension. The tray icon appears on the next restart.

What is the difference with the files you have posted in a previous post(kernel-4.16.0-0.bpo.2-amd64.squashfs , new init.rd ... etc...)?

I did that type of upgrade and conky reports kernel 4.16.0 and everything works as before.

The only downside so far (for me) is that I have to update virtual box to work with the new kernel. Smile

Hi, trister,
Running "upgrade-kernel" will upgrade to the latest kernel (4.9.0-7 now) from the "stable" repository.
Requires saving changes and reboot.
The files from the 4.16.0-0 archive is the kernel from Debian backports repository, which is not an included source by default in StretchDog.
Hope this answers your question.

EDIT: For virtual box you will probably need linux-headers (4.16) from backports.

Fred

Thanks Bill, added to repos.

@all, added package pschedule (great program, thanks to zigbert Very Happy ) to repos, install with Synaptic or apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install pschedule


Will replace busybox package with busybox-static, it includes crond (and much more, btw), which is required by pschedule.

Fred

Here are .deb packages for Xlunch Graphical App Launcher
(work in progress)
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/xlunch_3.2.12-5_i386.deb
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/xlunch_3.2.12-5_amd64.deb

See info and screenshots (and .pet packages) here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114208

Small difference with the .pet package is that everytime a new program is installed, it will 'trigger' dpkg and the entries for xlunch will be updated (in /etc/xlunch/entries.dsv)
(if the program has .desktop launcher in /usr/share/applications)

EDIT: Updated to version 3.2.12-5, added sc0ttman's addition of option --maxtextlength

hi, small request: allow to use pre-existing stretch dir.

my download stopped near the end of the process, due to out-of-diskspace.

So i had to start the download all over again. When i restarted (in a new dir), your script said it was going to delete everything in the stretch folder...

...update, but now i'm confused, cuz it seemed to continue without re-downloading... or so it seemed... Confused

...update, my final iso is 18MB Question ...update i deleted the stretch dir, and started over. My new iso is 9 MB Shocked Exclamation ...something's wrong, a 9 MB iso isn't an OS.

Also says frugal files are in isodata/live/. Hrm, what if i want to distrib the iso without any extra loose files? Will this script make an iso that works as a live CD?

THX

Hi johnywhy,

Obviously something went wrong, the ISO should be at least 160 MB.
Please provide more details about what you did, so I could try to reproduce.
From which OS you ran mklive-stretch, used -gui or -cli, which option(s) ? etc...
I suspect you ran out of disk space (second try again), you didn't run it from the virtual live system e.g. from /root did you ?
(EDIT: I mean when changes are running in RAM you'd need much RAM in that case)
It's best to run from a Linux formatted partition (e.g. ext4) with 2GB free disk space at least.
Yes. it will make an ISO that works as a live CD.

When restarting it will delete the build, but not the 'cache', i.e. already downloaded .deb packages will not be removed.

Well, there ya go. I ran it first from a Stretch desktop, and ran out of disk space.
Then ran it from an NTFS partition with lots of disk space.
Now (finally) running from an ext4 partition with lots of disk space. Fingers crossed.

Quote:
Code:
# sh mklive-stretch -gui
Checking network connection...
OK


Choose XFCE
Remove firefox and conky
Accept default on "Do you want to run Xterm just before exiting chroot ? (Enter=no) (y/N)?"
Got
Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Install some required packages, e.g. debootstrap, squashfs-tools, etc...
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
FAILED
Setting up debootstrap in stretch/chroot
This may take a while...


What's up with FAILED? The installer kept going. Shouldn't it stop on a FAIL?

later got:
Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Please set the password for 'root'
Also now you may want to add to or edit files in the chroot folder
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
Sorry, passwords do not match
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
Please try again, type password for root
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
Sorry, passwords do not match
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
Warning: password is not set

Adding group `fuse' (GID 1000) ...
Done.
...


hrm, i thought i entered root pw correctly. Anyway, why didn't it ask me again, instead of giving "password not set"? So what's the password now?

Well.. yes, you are right, it should stop then.
I don't know why you got the "interrupted" message
Sorry that things went bad for you, anyway, please try again and do before running mklive-stretch:
Code:
dpkg --configure -a


I'm not sure (from what you wrote) if the build finished.
The root password you can always set (again) after booting the system:
Code:
passwd root

it hadn't finished yet, when i posted. I didn't stop it. now it's up to
Code:
Cleaning...
Unmounting mount binds in chroot
Start extracting and creating new 'live' initrd files...
OK
108480 blocks
Creating initrd.img, please wait...
OK
Copy kernel modules, contents of lib/modules, from extracted 'live-boot' initrd
 to extracted 'porteus-boot' initrd skeleton, initrdport/lib/modules/ ...
OK
Creating initrd1.xz, please wait...

and kept going. Now it's gzipping.

i ran the dpkg command in another window as soon as i saw the message. But does the dpkg alert indicate this iso is already borked?

Update: it finished, i got a 200 MB iso. Bigger than expected. Trying a frugal install now...
