A new Obarun live image has become available on July 10th 2020 and it brings many updates and changes. From the live JWM session you can install a base system, Openbox, JWM, XFCE4, or KDE-Plasma with corresponding setup of 66 root and user service structure already set-up. All recent (July 9th 2020) stable Arch-Linux upgraded software based and a much improved installer is onboard. You can run the live system off of a CD (still fits) or Dvd or USB stick, or a virtual machine as a common disk system or a RAM only system from its syslinux editable boot menu.
NOTE: Previous Obarun images and installer may not work without manual intervention to incorporate the new GPG keyring for Obarun. Therefore older versions of pacman will not upgrade or install software, hence the net-install process will fail.
To install just click on the installer icon on the desktop or % sudo obarun-install from terminal or console. Do not run obarun-install as root as it needs to build some AUR pkgs for the installation (ie Connman Gtk gui).
This is needed to log onto obarun ISO
- root login : root
- root password : toor
- user login : oblive
- user password : toor
If you want to change the keyboard on X session, open a terminal and type :
$ setxkbmap us
Replace “us” with your choice (uk, fr, de, it, es, el, cn, etc.)
If you want to change the keyboard on console type :
# loadkeys el
Replace “el” with your choice
To see how the 66 service tree structure works, how booting and running services and modules are organized (unparalleled by any system) use the following commands as user:
% sudo 66-intree -zg
% 66-intree -zg
The second command displays the service tree structure of the user. Note, that depending on which of the five flavors you install service tree structure will/may be different, with xfce and kde-plasm being more complex. To alter this structure and modify it to your own service needs follow the wiki (introduction to 66).
Also note using the command # ps -A or # pstree that 66 is nowhere to be found. The only small parts relating to init and service supervision is pure s6 (latest version from skarnet). 66 only materializes when a change in setup is needed by the user/sys-admin, it sets up s6 appropriately and exits. Note also that elogind is nowhere to be found (a common cheat by many other non-systemd distributions to cheat desktop software to work without systemd). Apart from this your experience is basically and Arch system modified without IBM’s trojan horse to linux.
- Included 66 0.4.0.1-1
Enjoy, we know you will!
