Tips and Tricks / Creating a new package: gforth
« Last post by bci_ on Tue May 05 13:47:08 2020 »
I'm working on installing a custom package, gforth

I'm using this package file:

Code: [Select]

build() {
cd ${name}-${version}
make DESTDIR=$PKG install
I've made the directory /usr/ports/perso/gforth, and invoke

Code: [Select]
sudo pkgmk -d
Everything works smooth, but at one point I get
Code: [Select]
make[3]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/perso/gforth/work/src/gforth-0.7.3'
make[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/perso/gforth/work/src/gforth-0.7.3'
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/perso/gforth/work/src/gforth-0.7.3'
=======> ERROR: Building '/usr/ports/perso/gforth/' failed.

To check my work, I went ahead and installed the application  normally (not as a package). The installation went through smoothly (so I know it's not a problem with the application itself), and then, for kicks, I went ahead and attempted to complete the package installation - and it worked! I was then able to add the package and have it on my system. However, to make sure my package formula was correct, I uninstalled the package, and got rid of the conventional installation. That is, no more 'gforth' files on my system, except the Pkgfile in gforth's ports folder.

I reattempt the install, and I get this error. When I had succeeded in installing the package, I did, in fact, get that tar.xz file, and was able to use it to fully install the package.

Hi Thierry,

Your fix worked!  And I love the fact that Bluetooth works in NuTyX :)

So far, so good. Let's see how this goes.

Hi bci_

Sorry for this inconvenience. You just need to delete one file and reboot:

Code: [Select]
sudo rm /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/no-dns-update.conf
Then you reboot.

I did fix this issue 4 days ago

Good luck

I just installed Miyo's JWM ISO on a dedicated partition on my laptop. I normally use wireless from my laptop.  When I configure Wifi from the lower right-hand
Wifi icon, everything seems to work: I enter my SSID, my password, and Conky says I have uptime.  But, when I try to ping a domain name, say

Code: [Select]
ping -c 3
I get nothing, and eventually reports something like  "unknown host".  I also try to sync in the flcards app, and it reports "!! download failed !!".

I've even tried using a wired connection, and, to my amazement, the exact same thing happened.

This is quite odd, as this is the first time I'm experiencing this with a Linux distro. If there's any configuration file you need to see, let me know - the system looks like it uses NetworkManager, and I'm somewhat unfamiliar with that app.

I'm glad and proud to annonce the release of the new NuTyX Miyo Linux ISO.

You can find the ISOs on the download page or on sourceforge website directly.

I just saw this. Thank you Thierry. I didn't know it would have to be removed. I know when I upgraded my NuTyX installation (the one that I build the .isos on), I had to make a new panel again.  ;D

Could be a nice music theme for your next video
Yes, I really like his style too. I would love to use his music, but I don't know if it's copyrighted.  :-[

I even attached an external usb mouse but that did not work. If i install will i face the same issue, is there a workaround?
1. open a terminal if you can
2. as explain in
Code: [Select]
sudo cards install xorg-xf86-input-synaptics
About your boot problem, I'm sorry I cannot really help you as they are so many differnet cases.

Thanks. I could get the mouse working using synaptics package. I was able to detect nutyx by applying grub on the other distro. I installed kde and removed mate DE that i originally installed. So when i shutdown my system it just shows a cursor on empty screen. I need to press power button to shut down the system. Is there any package/library that i am missing or removed while uninstalling mate?
