I redone bash mkiso, without any pararmeters and it worked fine this time.

That said, the almost 6 Gib, refuse to be copied in my 4 Gb ram when I try to boot it.
Don't know if there is an option to tell to mount the different squashfs files rather than try to copy them in ram.

From ISO / generate iso: mkiso: It's not the 5.3.7-NuTyX kernel in this ISO
« Last post by dufresnep on Mon Oct 21 20:29:25 2019 »
When I came to generate the iso, I got:
(yeah, I had forgotten to set export NUTYX_TMP=/mnt/nutyx_tmp so that stuff ended in my home directory)
Code: [Select]
root [ /home/paul/packages-x86_64/x86_64 ]
# bash rolling/scripts/mkiso
something went wrong: It's not the 5.3.7-NuTyX kernel in this ISO

root [ /home/paul/packages-x86_64/x86_64 ]# ls $LFS
bin   dev  home  language.check  lib64         mnt  pkg   root  sbin  sys  usr
boot  etc  ISO   lib             locale.check  opt  proc  run   srv   tmp  var

root [ /home/paul/packages-x86_64/x86_64 ]# ls $LFS/boot
config_64-4.19.80-NuTyX-lts  kernel-4.19.80-NuTyX-lts
grub                         kernel-lts
initrd-4.19.80-NuTyX-lts     System_64.map-4.19.80-NuTyX-lts
root [ /home/paul/packages-x86_64/x86_64 ]#

indeed, it seems to be 4.19.80, not 5.3.7 kernel... is it really wrong?

May be try the MATE version, I think it will be easy to approach for you

Thanks for your reply. You say, "Once your system is installed configured,and booted." That's what I can't do. I guess I'm not expert enough to use NuTyX, but thanks again for your effort to help me.

It's a question of taking the time for reading the news. I just copy the extract of the news that concern your prob:

    A 4.5 GByte ISO base NuTyX "fixed" version is available which contains a complete repository of the binaries for the NuTyX 11.2 release. You can install NuTyX 11.2 completely without having to use the internet. To install packages from this ISO, once your base system is installed, configured and booting, it's just a question of mounting the media on the /mnt mounting point.

    Suppose you media is found under /dev/sdc1, use the following command to mount it:

   
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt
    Change this command to reflect your system.
 
Good luck

Here I am again, as confused as ever. Now I'm trying to use NyTyx 11.2 in live mode. I have the OS on a USB drive. It boots to a CLI. I have tried "get" and "cards install," but I always get the message that the package doesn't exist. "Check" gives me nothing I can understand. I'm trying to follow the documentation that's online, but I seem to be stymied at every turn. I'd appreciate some simple help.

From ISO / Re: Questions on installing from ISO without Internet
« Last post by BobC on Sat Aug 10 15:26:13 2019 »
I could see from the link that I had chosen a more complex setup.

I downloaded the Mate version, as it looks like a much simpler setup than the 5.4 gb fixed setup.

I booted to USB EFI and too an e option to add the following to the boot codes
 
acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=Windows i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 video=1024x768@32

Once it got to the install prompts it changed to 1024x768 and was viewable

I then connected my phone to the wifi and turned on tethering and plugged in a USB data cable from the phone to the computer

I used the advanced install and selected the tethered phone connection (should have written down the connection options).  I didn't know what to enter for ESSID or password, but it needed something so I gave it something reasonable.

I was able to connect and get completely installed.  I'm not sure if I will be able to reboot, so may reboot into another linux and update grub from there if it doesn't come up.

Thanks for your help

I downloaded the 5.4 gb fixed ISO.  Is there a way I can do the install without network access, then configure the network later using x-windows tools?  I am connecting via wifi, but it requires login via browser.  The selection boxes want me to select either ethernet or wireless and stall if I say wireless but then it can't connect.

Is there a boot code that I can give it to change the video resolution during install?  My default resolution is 3840x2160 and the characters are too tiny to read even with magnification.  All the distros seem to have this problem.  I am solving it by using my cellphone camera as a 4x magnifier.

Thanks for your help.  The wallpaper you chose looks great and I'm excited to try your newest version.

If you really download the 5.4 Gb means all the packages are includes in it. I think you need to reed this to solve your issue. About the resolution change in the installer, I have no solution for now.
