HyperTask installation https://issues.hyperbola.info/ 2018-08-19T15:40:44Z FS#1140: [FAQ]Please note that not all RAR archives are supported by unar 2018-08-19T15:40:44Z 2018-08-19T15:40:44Z

I tried to extract a RAR v5 archive using unar that works fine when using the non-free unrar.

Here is the log (with the file name altered)

$ unar file.part1.rar
file.part1.rar: RAR 5

file.mp4  (-2144860915 B)... Failed! (Attempted to read more data than was available)

Extraction to current directory failed! (1 file failed.)

Please add in the FAQ that newer RAR archives (version 5) may not work when using unar.

FS#758: To make installation instructions and get use of live ISO 2018-06-04T06:29:56Z 2018-06-04T06:29:56Z

I have installed multiple times Hyperbola, 4 times on 4 different notebooks.

What I have noticed is that the live ISO is quite huge in relation to the task that should be done. Namely. the live ISO shall at least contain some first packages, so that they do not need to be downloaded online.

Best would be if the live ISO can be copied straight and that system can run from ISO/DVD without having Internet. At least one simple graphical environment shall be included.

Further, I have noticed that there is only network instructions as HTML file.

I would rather call it installation-instructions.html to make it clear for people what it is. Or simply: INSTALL.html so that people understand what it is.

It says just network.html if I remember well.

Then there is absolutely no point or link or reference to the installation instructions.

Each time I got a network I had to go to either duckduckgo search engine or to hyperbola.info website and then I tried with lynx to find installation instructions.

It is not straight, not quite clearly in open, it is in Wiki, but that is quite hard to find.

We have to put ourselves in the shoes of those in need of free software. Millions of people need free software.

Many of us live in a developed western countries.

Yet millions of people in need of this software live in South America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe.

There are millions of students that could advance their study, and that could progress faster with free software.

In those countries Internet is often non-existent, universities may be located in poor network areas, Internet is being fetched by using mobile phones.

So if there is a live distribution, such shall at least contain basic software, which really can fit onto any DVD, and that as such can be copied on the computer without using Internet. Upgrades could be fetched by using Internet.

And there shall be clear reference, link or file about installation. There shall be no need to go to Internet to install the software.

FS#162: Support fde through calamares including /boot 2017-11-28T10:04:07Z 2017-11-28T10:04:07Z

I would also like to test the beta isos when they are ready through qemu. If it looks good I plan to fully install them onto my laptop. My libreboot x200.

I don’t know if I should make a separate feature for this, but xfce is a good stable desktop environment for such a choice. that and lxde.

Though lxde is going to die...
