News / Re: Live booting is slow because it copy everything to RAM
« Last post by Thierry on Sat Nov 30 10:06:46 2019 »
NuTyX 11.2 is very bad for this... because it try to copy as much as possible into RAM when booting live.
And this is very long... but after, you can remove the USB key, and programs start fast because they are
in memory. ...

They was a very good reason for that. Today many computers like laptop and INTEL tablets comes with only one USB port. So nice but if for example the pad or even worth the keyboard not working for any reason, you have the chance to plugin a mouse/a keyboard.

I can fix a lot of tings, but they really need to be relevant. For the username/password in the live system, as you probably knows it's just the lifetime of the live system. So typing just a single character  will make it...

It's very easy to build your own ISO with your own setting (including password less user). Just need to be motivated. You have no idea what you can do with NuTyX. Just do not assume anything.

News / Live booting is slow because it copy everything to RAM

Yeah... I tend to be the bad guy that come with what is wrong not mentioning what is cool.
But hey, if I need to express what is wrong, it's because it's good enough for me to choose
this distribution to be used... and get to see things I like less and wish would become 'fixed' in the future.

Now, I admit I tend to used Linux differently than others.
In part to test and erase hard disks.
So for me booting time is precious because I just test a disk 3 to 5 mins, then shutdown,
change hard disk, and reboot.

NuTyX 11.2 is very bad for this... because it try to copy as much as possible into RAM when booting live.
And this is very long... but after, you can remove the USB key, and programs start fast because they are
in memory. But for me, I would like a 'boot live fast' option... that would copy a minimum to RAM, if at all.

I made a USB key with latest version.
If, when booting, I give an empty password to the user I define, then I won't be able to login...
neither in graphical or console.

Okay! Whew! I think I've finished the configuration...   :P

Ended up making a very simple JWM theme switcher (in the menu) so that a user can easily change between the light and dark JWM theme.  ;)

Did a few more tweaks on top of it...

Will try to make the alpha .iso tomorrow!   8)   :D

Thank you Thierry!

I hope to have the final configuration touches finished today or tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll try to produce an "alpha" .iso on Saturday.  ;)

Well, I'm actually still tweaking the system.  :P   ;D

I keep finding little things that I want to make better for the .iso. So, at this point, I'd feel better if I waited to post the .jwmrc file(s) until I'm satisfied with the final product.  :)

Here's a quick glimpse at the light theme in progress...

I'll gladly post my .jwmrc if it's okay with Thierry...I'm not sure though since we're planning on producing an .iso with the configs that I came up with...don't know if we should make it public before the release of the .iso???

I've also made a light theme, so users will be able to use a dark or light theme based on Adwaita or Adwaita-Dark.  I'll post a screenshot later of the light theme.  ;)

Do what's the best for you ( and for NuTyX of course), I guess both would be nice :D .

Yes, with a JWM iso there would be no need to also post a .jwmrc separately.

As I explained elsewhere to Thierry, I do not have much technical knowledge. However, I do understand a little bit what you have been experiencing while configuring JWM. I did that a bit myself when starting to explore linux as an idea for making use of some older, spare computer hardware. (That idea also led me here to NuTyX.)

I look forward to seeing the iso with JWM when you have time to produce it.
