I shoulkd be able to add mc on the next spin , but groff again nas X based depends - although I have a work around that will get it to work, in the same way as drakxtools work.
Excellent work, Jase! Installed without a hitch. I have noticed one thing missing. There's a warning at bootup about resume binary missing. Sure enough, /usr/sbin/resume is missing.
I started to install mc, but backed off. In addition to several libx libraries it wanted to add, there was also groff, x11-data-bitmaps, and three x11-font packages. I would not have believed it.
Question. Does the user password use md5pass encryption? Every time I generated an md5pass string from a given password, password input failed for the user at login. I gave up and set the user password from the root account.
EDIT: I see now why resume isn't installed. It's provided by the suspend package which has a BUNCH of X package dependencies. Even though that error displays as a result of the resume= stanza in GRUB, I don't think it should be removed. I'd probably forget to put it back.
Thanks once again for the kind words
MC depends on groff which I think was built with the X flags enabled - which is why libx11_6 is a dependency, how ever I will use the "work around" to get both groff and mc on the next iso along with the intel firmware and the suspend package that is missing. the work-around ensures that the executables are there , but with out the dependencies they drag in, this also makes then unseen by the package manager, although keeps 100% compatibility with the repo.
regarding your question, not sure, I will look to see if there is a missing lib or similar
I would rather remove gstreamer and have mplayer as its more of an all in one solution - for the command line, I also want to get more familier with the framebuffer, the app fbset is currently missing I will include this on the next (if you could look to see if theer is an update for fbset - would be cool)
Somthing else I would like to know about is fbui (linux framebuffer UI) which is - apparently - a framebuffer windowing system built into the kernel, there is even a related wiget set(?!) if anybody knows how to activate this it would be a cool thing
as usual I will be looking at these in between family life and work( as I did not win the lottery this week) so there is no timescale, although I would hope to get another iso out within 10days or so
