Basic Queries
« on: Fri Jul 05 12:46:26 2019 »
Hi Team,
Very impressed with the Cards Package Manager and overall OS, So have been trying out Nutyx 11.1 on a VirtualBox VM.
1. Used the 380+MB Rolling Release ISO and have installed Nutyx on a single partition with a 2 GB Swap partition. Mate DE installed using the instructions provided.
2. Tried Epiphany Browser - But unable to have most Youtube videos - says unable to play html5 video. Can you please help ? Already have the ffmpeg package installed.
3. Is there a standard way to install deb/rpm/tar.gz packages ? Say for example I wanted to have Google Chrome or the latest version of Opera ? how can I install them ?

Thank you for the great work. Keep rocking...

Thierry

Thank you for your response. I will surely have a look at the link you had shared.
There is nothing wrong with Firefox. Since I had installed the rolling edition I did not install Firefox and wanted to try out Epiphany since it was the updated 3.32 version available. Opera was a little older (58 compared to 60 that is GA).

One other issue I am facing is that I am not able to get ntp to properly sync.
I am unable to switch timezones. The timing is off by a few hours.

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin ]$ tzselect
/usr/bin/tzselect: line 179: /usr/share/zoneinfo/zone1970.tab: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/tzselect: time zone files are not set up correctly

Can you please help me with the time setup please.

Sure:

Code: [Select]
setup-nutyx -h
then I guess the right command will be:

Code: [Select]
setup-nutyx -clwill do it

otherwise, if not working because your location is not existing (for example) you just need to re link the link /etc/localtime to the right location: for example:

Code: [Select]
ln -svf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Dubai /etc/localtime
As you maybe already knows, NuTyX is inspired by LFS
more explaination can be found on the GLIBC package from LFS  documentation, at the bottom of the page:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/development/chapter06/glibc.html


Good luck

Thierry

Thank you for your response.

I used setup-nutyx -cl to select the country and language.

Even after that the timing was not correct. Hence I used your suggestion to symlink /etc/localtime to the appropriate region.
Even after that I see a difference of about 1.5 minutes. Is it possible to set up timing accurately ?

My apologies for the trouble.

no prob, just use the same command:

Code: [Select]
sudo setup-nutyx -cc
