lfs and nutyx
« on: Sat Dec 04 23:15:48 2021 »
Hi

ab. 10 y. ago or a bit more, I did build a Nutyx base with the wonderful Nutyx build script for both kernel and base.

it was

- easy

and

- (relatively) fast.

the only one problem was, that the Nutyx depository was, at that time, permanently changing and did often cause

deceptions

as it is often not possible to end such a process at the same time (at both side: the depository did contain incompatible source and the user did remake his work 2 or more days later and the directories needing did contain defect or obsolete parts).

but in case of success, it was fantastic!

(the real problems did begin later: what is possible to do with the base and how to do that: the documentation did not really answer that important question!).

what is today?

a. can we use a Nutyx script to build a base?

b. can we interrupt the work 2..7 day without to have to erase a (not well known or defined) lot of directories just made yet, yesterday?

c. is a way (card?) well defined how to continue to grown, compiling each module, the new system (for ex. add a full environment, for ex.  the poor little jwm (not saving the session), or xfce4 (saving the session and the actual keyboard settings etc.), or for ex. gnome with gnome-browser (epiphany or eolie, better eolie if possible, eolie needs a lot of modules of perl!) as well as gnome office (abiword, gnumeric, gimp, gv, a good editor activable in all languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Tamil etc. with spell checking (what kind of spell checking? spell continue to be a problem in Linux!) and, of course, each minimum ONE adequate font), and, as ersatz for not available presentation in gnome, magicpoint, xsane, tesseract-ocr, gimagereader, mplayer and smplayer, or for ex. a real and authentic KDE with all real KDE applications not mixed with other (konqueror and not firefox, calligra or Koffice and not OO or other one, etc. etc.!)?

d.  and how to continue with divers special applications needing in divers professions or kind of use: easculap (medical imaging), rosegarden (music professions and school), marble and/or merkaartor (both: geograph and school), latex with or not lyx (university for presentations in mathematic, physic, perhaps also in music through mudela, lylipond and frescobaldi, etc.), gramps with the terrible (because so big and so numerous number of modules) python (same problem as with perl, see above "eolie")?

this is fundamental information how useful Nutyx can be in the daily work for people wishing more than a fundamental development system and more a productions system being able to be adapted easily, a wide usable system!

I hope Nutyx will continue to be developed and grown in this direction

and wish to the crew great success!

Hello lfsfan

Welcome to the NuTyX forums.
Thanks for this long message.

with NuTyX not anymore as NuTyX is now a pure rolling release.

grat-os is another linux distribution inspired by LFS using systemd. Maybe ...

the mybld command does this for us contributors.

As long I'm alive, I don't see why not.

Hello, a great message here.

Just why rebuild what is already done. The nutyx distro is now a binary one since a very long time. You have a lot of prebuild packages even a lot are missing for you need but it's a good base to continue with.

You can find almost answers to your questions on the nutyx website and on nutyx and mybld manpages. You can  produce a personal collection with all of the packages you think they are missing without rebuilding the existing ones. Mybld script is the compilation bot that help you to produce new binaries on a personal repo that can be shareable for all your nutyx installation via httpd or something else.

If I have really understand your D question, I think it's for similar usage than the C one.

Tell us if you have some particular questions about that or other.

Best regards.

I thank you very much for that link. I seems to be a great enterprise that I will like!

I will try it. Perhaps during the Christmas days. I hope I can spend the time.

Are you the author (or who is the author in case of questions (*1 )?

Kind regards.
