InstallationGeneralImplementation RequestHighCriticalTo make installation instructions and get use of live I...Unconfirmed
0%
Task Description

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.

Task Description

The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).

NOTE: POWER porting is focused only for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

PackagesAnyBug ReportVery LowCritical[system-config-printer] Impossible to print some pdfs (...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hello,

I’m unable to print some pdfs on my Hyperbola 3.0 system.
Some background :

cups is installed, service enabled and working
system-config-printer is installed and my printer has been correctly added.

I can print most pdfs and text files but recently with a pdf, it fails to print it.* And system-config-printer returned the following error (see capture) :

Printer "EPSON XP-620-Series" requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper' but it is not currently installed.

Currently, “epson-escpr-wrapper” is installed but it is in :

/usr/libexec/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper

Looking at source code of system-config-printer, it expects that wrapper to be installed in “/usr/lib/” so I tried to symlink that “epson-escpr-wrapper” to “/usr/lib/cups/filters” but it doesn’t work..

*With a Debian system and the exact same configuration, the “problematic” pdf prints just fine so it is not an issue with the pdf.

Task Description

/sbin/openrc-run: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I get this error whenever I try to start dhcpcd with sv /etc/runit/

And for sndiod I get this doing the same guide,

warning: sndiod: unable to open supervise/ok: file does not exist

Although rather ironically, If I type sndiod or dhcpcd into root, it works just fine.

Maybe its an FHS issue or possibly, I am screwing up? I am not sure. Feedback is welcome.

This is what I did:

=⇒ Add a service:

ln -s /etc/sv/<service> /var/service
==> Start/stop/restart a service:
sv <start/stop/restart> <service>

more or less, I used this guide.

Task Description

Within the concurrent version of xenocara for version 0.4 there is a problem in vesa, generating the error-message "V_BIOS address 0x0 out of range". It is a known old bug that was fixed when D-Bus arrived by default.

This issue is oriented onto to document the steps to test further solutions and rework the x-server.

InstallationGeneralBug ReportHighCriticalCan't refresh pacman keys on 0.4 installation diskUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

After making sure that the system date is correct, when one tries to refresh the
pacman keys (`pacman-key –refresh-keys`) they will be given an error:
Server indicated a failure

The error will not be fixed if you remove all the pacman gnupg assets nor if you
attempt to fix `dirmngr`.

This seams to only be reproducable as well when pacman-init fails to load on but, dont know if it is just a coiencidence but it seams both are related

Also both irelativism and reports by users in IRC where able to reproduce this on version 0.3.1 and might even come from previous release, so issue is presistant over new release cycle.

PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowHigh[vlc] DVB : cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill b...Unconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Current VLC version (3.0.4-3.hyperbola1.backports1) fails to play DVB stream using a RTL2832 usb dongle.

I start the playlist like this :

vlc channels.conf

but it returns the following error :

cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer

Also, it asks the user to be in “video” group to access DVB device, this was not needed before with Hyperbola 0.2.9. User being in “wheel” was enough.
Anyway, even after adding my user to video group, it still fails with “cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer”

This is not an issue with my DVB adapter or driver. rtl2832 is correctly loaded. And I can play the channels.conf playlist just fine with “mpv” or “mplayer”.
Also, the channels.conf used works just fine with a more recent version of VLC on an other system (Manjaro) so something is broken with the current VLC used.

Maybe a package bump would fix the issue.

0%
Task Description

When dmcrypt service start, the “/” filesystem is remounted, mtab is updated and bootmisc is recording the login users, by waiting time scheduling:

* root: waiting for dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* root: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Remounting root filesystem read/write ...
* Remounting filesystems ...
* mtab: waiting for dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* mtab: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Updating /etc/mtab ...
* Creating mtab symbolic link
* bootmisc: waiting to dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* bootmisc: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Creating user login records ...

These features on dmcrypt service are useless and these lines print above filesystem passphrase order (the printed line), those ones break printed console and print the pressed keyboard digit when I’m setting up password.
Sometimes this breaks services startup, and I need press “enter” consecutively to allow run the services.

Hi guys, I have ever run into a Brother brand printer model DCPT500W[0], and I have seen that the source code for the drivers under GPLv3 license is available.

I also see that there is a file brother_dcpt500w_printer_en.ppd, which is important for cups, which is why it may be necessary to integrate it into the cups, as long as the drivers are Libre.
