Title: I am new!
Post by: vsayanam on Thu Apr 07 14:30:09 2016
It was a pleasant surprise to read about NuTyX distribution based on LFS and BLFS in Distrowatch.com. I immediately downloaded both base and gui ISOs and installed them successfully. I also installed Ubuntu Mate in the same hard disk and found that it co-existed. Sometime back I installed LFS-7.5 in console mode and later tried some Window versions also. (Recently I started LFS-7.9 and base version was installed in about 2 days' time.) It required a lot of time and effort but it was fun. But the surprise is that additional Window Managers like Gnome could be effortlessly added to XFCE4. Remarkable! I intend to closely follow this forum. Congratulations to the developers for the wonderful work done!

Title: xfs not recognized by other distros.
Post by: vsayanam on Sat Apr 09 16:16:42 2016
Hi,
After trying NuTyX installation in ex4 file system, I tried xfs in another drive (for the first time) but it was not recognized by other distros like Ubuntu 14.04 and Fedora 20. I had to reinstall in ex4 format and got Grub working finally after installing Mint. I think it would be helpful if this fact is mentioned, provided I have not made any error,
Regards.

Not clear,
What's exaclty is not working ?
 I can only answer for NuTyX distro problems as I probably told you already. I'm using (at home) nothing  else then NuTyX for 10 years now. Up to you to use other distros. I have enought with fixing NuTyX bugs. Will not "find out why
other distros like Ubuntu 14.04 and Fedora 20....."

For your info, NuTyX (like LFS) DO NOT support the grub-config and co commands because it is useless.
If you want a working grub, best it to learn how to edit grub.cfg file. You can find the explaination here (http://nutyx.org/en/grub-install.html)

Thanks for your feedback
Title: Re: Installation in xfs

Hi,
I am sorry for the confusion. There is no bug and I just wanted others to know that if NuTxY is installed in xfs file system, then other Linux distributions will not recognize NyTyX in the same system. However, if ext4 file system, which is now normal for most of the distributions, is used, there is no such problem.
Hope it is clear now. Apologies for wasting your time.
BTW, I have installed Gnome, Mate, KDE5, LXDE and XFCE4 in NyTyX with ease and am studying each so that I may try the same with LFS/BLFS.

Regards.
