...and I quote ...

It is possible to fail in many ways...while to succeed is possible only in one way.

...and I'm looking for that way.

Okay, so, where am I now? Still in RAM. Now, I'm using Knoppix as my workhorse. Finnix, does not seem to have the Make util...

But, to compile the Kernel (ah, today was the outage due to a security breach, real scary), I needed a source package, fair enough, I had one, a 2.6.34. Granted, a bit stale...

No new mastering needed...

Posted 09-10-2011 at 08:18 AM by Thor_2.0

Remastering the CD is not needed...phew...

Okay, so, I dont have an image to "spread" but hey, I dont even know where to begin where remastering is concerned.

Everything goes straight to the harddrive...I found one last night, 80Gb, ought to be enough...

So, "Da cappo" - as it says in clasical music...

"le TAR noeveau est arrvé"(*)

Posted 09-09-2011 at 01:18 PM by Thor_2.0

Well, installing TAR was an easy one...snag...I've been at it for some time not that "I dont knoz zhere the keys qre qny,ore", but that'll pass ... I hope ...

TTYLinux is configged in QWERTY, hence...

Persisting on a stick may not be the way forward. I've got something that could help with the remastering, but a full install is not wise as not every PC can boot of a stick, at least not the ones I've got...

So, wised up, I'm looking for an empty...

The main plan

- get networking up and going
- make a user
- set the root pass
- make a symlink from the /home folder (in memory at that time) to the /home folder on the stick - the user already existed...
- change to the user
- do the ./configure and make of every dependency
- become Root
...

New Master...

Posted 09-07-2011 at 01:07 PM by Thor_2.0

I'm getting a dark feeling...I may have to remaster the original CD.

Installing GNU tar, because the Busybox tar does'nt always work, depends on...dependencies. These need to come first.

The plan is to set everything up and master whatever result is there to a CD. In the same run, I could set up the /etc/resolv.conf TTYLinux does not have. And append to the rc.conf to get networking set up in one clean swoop...

But, as this could take a while, I decided...
