llpatchapt is a new systemd service I wrote to ensure the integrity of apt. This will hopefully translate to fewer Install Updates errors being reported going forward.

Ok, the file is called 'patchapt' If it is not in /etc/llapt/patchapt I most likely included it for the final and not the rc.

If it is there, run:

Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/llapt/patchapt
else:
      17 more sleeps

exit 0

:)

what is the new "writable" partition on my usb drive? I dont like my veracrypt partitions to be logged!... Oh I found it hitting esc and typing "exit" to grub gives the "old" boot menu where I can hit tab and type in " toram" (yes space included). This will copy LL live entirely in RAM (what I almost always do and have done). This makes it almost instant to check the md5sums (booting) as the needed files are already copied to RAM and don't need to be read from boot media again. What about making it default to copy to ram when there is enough 4gb+ or 8gb+ of RAM. Seems to work fine.

The update notification, not my favorite but fortunately have more options than "always notify and force updates even if configured to not do so and don't care about what programs was open or unsaved data" When I realized that this is really the case with windows I stopped Using it. I no longer need windows or use it even if it is the only OS installed, because I have LL installed to usb drive to override that ((force)update) shit.

Bugs

Cant install virtualbox via lite software or with apt. Audacity installed successfully with apt. I now use gnome-boxes temporarily. audio volume is also a lot harder to control, thanks to limited length pulseaudio. Opening encrypted volumes via gui is broken but manually using cryptsetup commands work.

Luks error (when trying to open volume with gui)
Code: [Select]
[b]Failed to mount "size Encrypted"[/b] Error unlocking /dev/sdx: The function 'bd_crypto_luks_open_blob' called, but not implemented!

If it means anything for both 4.8 and 5.0rc with the alienware doesn't fully boot with the open source nvidia driver.

For 4.8 it boots every 3 or 4 times.
Switching it to the nvidia driver fixes it without issues.

For 5.0rc it does not at all.

It is an alienware 13 r3 laptop w/7300hq cpu, intel 630 + nvidia 1050ti gpus.

I hope this info helps.

@minesheep please do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install libblockdev-crypto2
systemctl restart udisks2.service

and report back if that fixes it, I'll put it in the Final is it does.

I'd love to be able to include the nvidia drivers on the ISO but that would cause it to bloat in size. What happens when you select to Install 3rd party drivers for graphics and wifi during install? If you're connect to the internet, it should pull those in and install them.

I always install with the 3rd party option checked :(

When running from live usb system It is no longer faster to boot directly from flash drive than from RAM and copy LL to ram unless md5sum skipping

https://askubuntu.com/questions/829917/can-i-boot-a-live-usb-fully-to-ram-allowing-me-to-remove-the-disk

Lets say that:
my usb takes 60 seconds to read about 1,5gb (LL install media)
my RAM takes 1 second to read about 1,5gb (LL install media)
my computer boot into the LL loading stage in about 10seconds
my usb takes about 15seconds to read about 350mb (LL essential files to boot up)

Then:
booting normally with LL 4.8 takes about 25seconds (with toram disabled and md5sum disabled)
booting with toram with LL 4.8 takes about 70seconds (with toram enabled and md5sum disabled)
booting normally with LL 5.x takes about 70seconds (with toram enabled and md5sum disabled)
booting with toram with LL 5.x takes about 71seconds (with both toram and md5sum enabled) md5sum checking can be done in ram

However using toram boot parameter with less RAM than needed result in crash while booting (out of RAM)

I copied the 5.0 rc1 to 2gb usb drive with dd (live usb). I don't have 5.0rc1 installed (no permanent install). I have most of stable installations on larger usb drives of 16-64gb (including LL 4.8 ) https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-lite-to-usb-stick-not-ready-yet!/
