* Slackware Live Edition: version Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-1/+1
* Fix pxeserver and expand its functionality Eric Hameleers2023-09-172-28/+107
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - PXE boot of a UEFI computer finally works. Note that if it does not work for you out of the box, look at the section where a section of 'dhcp-match' and 'dhcp-boot' lines is commented out. If you remove the comment characters from these 8 lines and instead, add a comment character '#' in front of the 'dhcp-match' and 'pxe-service' lines a bit higher up, your UEFI computer might actually succeed in booting over the network. - Optionally, the script can hide its PXE clients behind a NAT router in case external network is not accessible via normal routing. - Correct nmcli syntax is being used now... - Network interface will be de-configured when the script ends, likewise any NAT iptables rules will be removed afterwards.
* Create 24 point Grub font from DejaVu Sans Mono Regular TTF file Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-1/+1
| | | | | We already had several smaller font sizes, perhaps liveslak will use this larger font someday.
* Fix harmless warning about missing dhcpcd account during PXE boot Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-0/+6
* Prevent useless re-mounting of squashfs and overlay filesystems Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-0/+4
| | | | This is not necessary, annoying and pollutes the screen during boot-up.
* Add Cloudflare DNS ( to resolv.conf Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-0/+1
| | | | Just because Google is not everything.
* move KAPPEND definition to an earlier position Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-5/+5
| | | | | The pxeserver.tpl will start using @KAPPEND@ template, so the $KAPPEND variable needs to be defined when we get there.
* MIN package list: add tmux Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-0/+1
| | | | | Some people prefer tmux over screen, moreso because other distros seem to only ship tmux and omit screen. Why?
* liveinit: fix shutdown/reboot for PXE clients Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-5/+8
| | | | | This needed some changes because the Slackware rc.0 and rc.6 scripts have evolved and my old hacks no longer worked.
* liveinit: dhcpcd puts its PID in different places each release Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-1/+3
* UEFI boot: let's give GRUB some more font sizes to work with Eric Hameleers2023-09-171-0/+2
* Fix UEFI boot when ISO was dd-ed to USB thumbdrive Eric Hameleers2023-09-172-1/+3
| | | | | | | | | Since early 2019, when you dd-ed or cp-ed a live ISO directly to a USB stick, and you booted from this stick on a UEFI computer, you would end up in the GRUB commandline, because $prefix would not be defined and GRUB would be unable to find its files. My 2019 modification fixed PXE boot but broke this specific case of UEFI boot. And now it has finally been fixed after I had a brain fart.
* Several enhancements to LUKS containers and their support scripts Eric Hameleers2023-09-107-235/+923
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To name the most important: - The filesystem inside the containers is no longer limited to ext4 and can now be btrfs, ext2, ext4, f2fs, jfs or xfs. The scripts '' and '' now support this filesystem choice via a new '-F' switch. - The '' script can now extend the size of your home and persistence container files, in case you run out of storage there. - The internal functions used in '' '' and '' are mostly unified now, and I intend to split all functions off into a separate file which makes maintenance as well as adding new functionaliy easier. - The '' script will now create a 'kernelmodules' squashfs module and copies it to liveslak's 'addons' directory after updating the boot kernel on the USB stick and the kernel-modules inside the initrd image. This way, you no longer end up with a broken Live OS if you forgot to install a Slackware kernel-modules package inside the persistent Live OS prior to running '' with the '-k' and '-m' parameters. In addition, the README.txt was updated with these enhancements so that the liveslak documentation is again completely up to date.

* Slackware Live Edition: version Eric Hameleers2023-08-151-1/+1
* Fix broken support for Ventoy on UEFI computers Eric Hameleers2023-08-153-2/+14
| | | | | | | | | | | Changes in Slackware-current in March and May 2023 broke support for detection of Ventoy disk on UEFI computers. Liveslak's initrd needed to have efivarfs module added, so that /sys/firmware/efi/efivars can be mounted by the live init script. With kernel 6.x the content of what's found under efivars has changed - instead of being represented as a directory with the efi datastructures as files, liveslak now needs to deal with a single file instead and find the offset in there.
* Make kdesu work again with sudo backend (using live password) Eric Hameleers2023-08-081-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | For kdesu to work with the sudo backend in KDE5 with newer versions of sudo (since 2022), we need to disable use_pty for kdesu. KDE5 fixed this in git on 04-aug-2023, see but it does not hurt to implement the workaround in liveslak, as it helps to support older KDE releases. This is the KDE commit message, see : Recent versions of sudo have use_pty enabled by default, which means that sudo creates a PTY for starting the user process inside after successful authentication. This PTY inherits the configuration of sudo's TTY, but later changes are not transferred. Make sure that echo is already disabled when sudo is started, as disabling it later has no effect on the nested PTY.
* Partition Manager needs kpmcore Eric Hameleers2023-06-091-1/+1
* makemod_wine: vkd3d is no longer an external dep for wine Eric Hameleers2023-06-041-7/+7
* Slackware Live Edition: version Eric Hameleers2023-06-041-1/+1
* Cosmetic change to a comment Eric Hameleers2023-06-041-1/+1
* SLACKWARE: the fulll distro no longer fits on a DVD Eric Hameleers2023-06-041-1/+3
| | | | | | Therefore, pruning starts for the SLACKWARE Live ISO. Too bad really. Removed are some packages that are relatively big and arbitrarily not used that much (quite a personal opinion of course).
* Move some packages from Plasma5 support into no-X and X base modules Eric Hameleers2023-06-043-3/+7
| | | | | More and more, non-KDE software starts depending on packages that were introduced for KDE Plasma5.
* XFCE: fix the XDM login screen Eric Hameleers2023-06-041-0/+5
| | | | Input text for login and password was no longer visible.
* DAW, LEAN, SLACKWARE: more detail in KDE Plasma System Info Eric Hameleers2023-06-021-0/+6
| | | | | | Even when running -current, the KDE Info Center will show Slackware's stable version number. Therefore, add a line of text informing about the development status of Slackware -current when the ISO is based on it.

* disable metadata_csum_seed in ext4 filesystem Eric Hameleers2023-03-161-1/+8
| | | | | Grub 2.0.6 stumbles over metadata_csum_seed which is enabled by default since E2fsprogs 1.47.0, so let's disable that too
