PostPosted: Mon 20 Oct 2014, 18:53    Post subject: Updated Chromium for Lighthouse64  

@Peebee has been making a 64bit version of Chromium available to community users over the past 2 releases.

I just tested on a pristine Mariner version without loading the Chrome SFS at boot time.

Instead, @Peebee's contribution, Chromium64 was
  1. downloaded
  2. moved from the /root/spot/Download directory to /root
  3. Open ROX to downloaded SFS
  4. Rightclicked to run sfs-load
  5. Chose CD as the target to save

Success message gotten, but, I could not get it to run after it as whether I wanted it for "...default". In a terminal, I got this message
Code:
bash-4.1# chromium
/usr/lib64/chromium/chromium: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.18' not found (required by /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium)
Has anyone found a path to launch success using this SFS?

Means that the infrastructure (glibc) of LH 64 602 Beta 2 is not current enough for the demands of Chromium64......

Regarding this post and those leading to it:

I need a suggestion for which commands [and where] to add to the grub.cfg file in Lighthouse64-6.02-B2_Mariner.iso, so there will be no auto-save during a session nor at shutdown/reboot, but will be presented with the choice to "save or no save".

Anyone?

@Syylvander has reported that the XFCE desktop for LH64 is 32bit. I have never used it and am at a disadvantage in being a help. But, others of you have used this WM.

Questions
    Have you noticed this?
    Does it impact use?
    Is there a current 64bit version that offers benefits
?Curious of this finding.

Subject description: Caine
 

Any chance we can gain some insight as to potential additions/updates to LH64 from the newest release of Caine?

http://www.caine-live.net

Sure has some neat features and some UEFI workarounds ...

Subject description: DJVU
 

Anyone get a DJVU reader to work in LH 64?

PPM says I have djulibre installed but "djvu" "djview" etc. don't work from Console, nor can I get it from toying with various Run Action settings.

Any thoughts, please?

I have a radio schematic I am trying to view ...

Thanks!

Subject description: update VLC in LH64-602b2
 

The updated FF is complaining about VLC:

Quote:
VLC Web PluginVersion 2.0.6 Twoflower, copyright 1996-2012 VideoLAN and Authors
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ vulnerable


They offer a bunch of Linux distro updates for VLC but I'm not sure if I should use any of them or wait for a Puppy/LH64-602-b2 compiled VLC update.

WDYT?

Subject description: Password Protect?
 

I just poked around and didn't find this ...

Where, please, may one set a password to protect access to LH 64?

Just a simple log-in thing at boot-up - just to keep a basic-skills computer user off the laptop.

I haven't tried this since I do everything as root, but have you tried 'menu/setup/personalize settings/ ...getting started (upper right)/password wizard' ?

You should also be able to set up a password in the bios/firmware of your box which would theoretically keep everyone out.

Thanks!

Here's the thing - as I look at those two password options I recall that I am never asked for a password when I power-on the computer - so the one on the left won't help, & I believe that the screen saver password only engages once the computer has been on & times-out to screen saver mode - yes?

If that's all correct than do I really need to set a BIOS password?

I want to require a password when someone tries to access the computer which has been powered off.

Note: I boot this laptop from USB in order to get around the MS/UEFI monopoly-mess. I'll have to experiment with a BIOS password to learn if the workaround also compromises it.

Thanks again.

If you are booting with GRUB, you can add a password line to your menu.lst like
Code:
title Lighthouse
password abcde

Make sure that you have an alternate way to boot the machine, like off a CD, in case you make a mistake.

Subject description: Seamonkey VLC Plug-In Update?
 

Seamonkey updated & is now forcing a window every time it opens whining about the need to check plug-ins and VLC is the trigger.

Seamonkey -> Help -> Plugins: Version 2.0.6 Twoflower

There isn't an update in PPM (latest there is 2.0.4).

I'm guessing I need the Slackware 64 version?

http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/vlc/build/

Is this the correct file?

vlc-2.1.5.tar.xz 06-Jul-2014 10:16 19M


NOTE: If libvlcplugin.so is in that ".xz" it's not visible to me! Must be another source somewhere ... help, please?

I need the updated "libvlcplugin.so" to replace the old one here:

What, me, make mistakes? Rolling Eyes

Is it the grub.cfg file (looks a lot like a typical menu.lst) where I insert this?

Should I insert it after "set timeout=10"?

Code:
insmod png
background_image /menu.png
set timeout=10
menuentry "1 Lighthouse64" {
    linux /vmlinuz
    initrd /initrd.xz
}


Thanks!

You have GRUB2, so I don't know where it should go.

I just found the instructions:
[url]
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Passwords[/url]

Complexity comes with power ...

I wonder if someone could create a simple "Set GRUB2 Password" entry, via a PET, for the LH64 Menu?

It could be only for All Access or also break down some of the user and/or menu options.

I just need something simple to keep a basic computer user from accessing the computer - an initial superuser password requirement, prior to the display of any Grub menu items, should get that done.

Anyone good with GRUB2 out there, please?
