News / Addition of the collection nos in the next version 10.3
« Last post by Thierry on Sun Jul 15 10:49:04 2018 »
If you are (like me) on the "development" branch, it will now be necessary to activate the "nos" collection. Indeed, the next version 10.3 of NuTyX has received many updates (python, icu, perl, ffmpeg, samba, xorg-server, mesa, qt 5, and many others)

In this way it is currently no longer possible for me to compile libreoffice from sources. So I made available the latest stable version of it in the collection "nos".

I took the opportunity to also move the "virtualbox" package which under NuTyX is a binary version (so not compiled) in this same "nos" collection.

The "nos" collection is precisely provided for this purpose. It receives any recipes that are not compiled or (temporarily not compilable)

I put you below the line to add at the beginning of your /etc/cards.conf file:

Code: [Select]
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/nos|

I found this website interesting

Best regards,

Dear contributors,

I am Natnaree Asavaseri and currently undertaking a research internship at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan. As a part of my research, I am analyzing the impact of Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub.

I would like to conduct a survey to understand how developers perceive the Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub, especially from contributors to Linux distributions and BSD families. So please consider voicing your opinion by allowing us up to 5 minutes to complete our short survey.

We would like to remind you that participation in this survey is completely voluntary and your identity is hidden for anonymity. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi Bozonius Hi Thierry
I think there is a mismatch between the version of virtualbox you use.
Bozonius says  he uses 5.1.12 (are you sure because your test show that you are uncompressing GA 5.2.12) and you Thierry 5.2.12 on both sides.
Normally you must use the same level on both the host and the guest if you have virtualbox 5.1.12 the GA must would be 5.1.12. To complicate the Nutyx kernel has the modules of  virtualbox 5.2.12 compile in.

if you use 5.1.12 the best way is to upgrade Virtualbox to 5.2.12 on the host

Best regards Daniel

My suggestion would be: Make a video of your all process so I can point out what you maybe wrong.

Thanks a lot for keep trying anyway. I'm shure it's  a small detail we miss.

You could also setup an ssh server and connect via ssh

I am running CentOS as my VBox host with VBox 5.1.12.   So there is some other difference as to why I can't get GA's to compile.

I'll have a test box in a few days or so; maybe I can try some things then unless you have any more suggestions.  Not having the GA's makes evaluation of NuTyX difficult because the clipboard, shared file systems, and other VBox features do not work without them which slows me down a bit.  There's always FTP I guess...
