Re: Sync Dirs while running

I would like a more complete description of how this works and the exact
syntax when adding more than one directory to the sync list. I think it's a
very powerful feature but I'm not really clear on it and I suspect others
aren't either.

The sync list is a "space separated"[1] list as the voyage-sync script
is a simple (bash)-script.

[1] http://db.glug-bom.org/Documentation/abs-guide/loops1.html#EX22A

I do not understand what you mean by "not being really clear on it" so
I'd say have a look at the script to figure out how it works. Thats
how I did it.

because it was included in the other versions of voyage.

Wouldn't it be better to choose at installation process if someone wants a vey 
small installation or a complete installation?

That I find a good idea. May be there is not everywhere internet access.

Yes, maybe. But there is nothing like a complete/full installation
(ok, technically there could be) because installing 25000+ packages
would be some kind of overkill..

IMHO the point of such a custom distribution like Voyage is to pick
the most useful (resp. necessary) packages to get the work done but
keep the set as small as possible.

Sudo - although very useful - is not absolutely necessary to run a
system. Punky might answer the question why he removed it from the
distribution.

You also can rebuild Voyage using SDK or Debian Live[1] and put
whatever package you like..

Just check, sudo didn't exist in 0.3.1, 0.4.1 and 0.5.2.  I can't 
remember the oldest one including it or not.

That is not the point. Not 25000+ packages. Not KDE and this stuff...
But sudo and host for example for me is a basic thing.
Also the editor nano where i feel better with.

Yes, therefore I would suggest an additional menu for asking a very small 
distribution or a (more or less) complete distribution.
That I find a useful option. And you can get more people happy whith that in 
times of cf cards getting bigger and bigger...

It is not absolute necessary, but in some cases useful.
I use it to set the IP Adress of the computer for example, with ifconfig.
And to call pump (dhcp program).
And to call setterm to prevent messages at the command line interface when 
plug in a usb stick for example.
I have programmed a graphical software:

Voyage Linux and 802.11s

Hi,

I am interested in trying out 802.11s on Voyage Linux. According to the open80211s website if you are using a ath5k compatible wireless card, which I am, I need a kernel => 2.6.29. I just installed voyage 0.6.2 and I have kernel 2.6.26. I have done a update and upgrade but the kernel number did not change. Do I have any options other than to wait for voyage 0.6.3 or 0.6.4.

Thanks for your time
Dave

remounting issues and screen issues

Hi, i have problem with remounting file system, sudo remountrw works fine,  
but after typing sudo remountro i got this:

mount: / is busy

I have also problem using screen, it doesn't launch:

Cannot make directory '/var/run/screen': Access denied

Each time i have to make that dir manually and set its permissions to 777,  
and then i can (finally..) use screen for my wget downloads (it writes  
data on mounted flashdrive)

What i supposed to do to have screen working with main file system mounted  
read-only?

Re: remounting issues and screen issues

What version of Voyage Linux you are using?
