Some people here even don't know that paldo didn't had this beautiful installer as it has now. Well here is a old post of mine with the old installer I created. This post is outdated. We don't use my installer anymore. We kept the page online so you can see and download my old stuff to compare to the new one. You've to download the Paldo 1.10 - Developer Edition to see the old installer.


I build some LiveCDs with my installer.



What do you think about it?
What should I change? What did I miss? What suggestions do you have for it?

Tell me some about it so I can improve it.

The newest sourcecode of my installer you can find here:

paldo-installer-source
paldo-installer-scripts

Maybe these functions will be usefull:

  • install paldo on more than one partition (/boot /home /root)
  • automount of all found partitions (/mnt/partitionname - incl. ntfs)
  • detection of other paldo-os on your hdd (32bit and 64bit pararell)
  • add more than one user-account to your system

Is sok, but

I have tried 3 times Livecd unstble + testin, always notfinished installation.

The installer seemes to ignore jfs Partitions.
I had a / with jfs, but the installer formats it to ext3.

A item, to choose the filesystem were good, also a item to choose the targed of the bootloader is a good idea. At the moment you can only choose not to install to mbr, and in the /, to fd0 should also be possible.

The network should also be prepared in the installers dialog, so can easely setup dsl.

Well this installer explained is the old one. paldo-installer-0.1.9-1/2 is developed by jürg billeter. We don't support all filesystems atm. To put grub at a different location is possible. DSL-Configuration you can do with network-manager 0.7 easily so we don't think there is a need for this in the installer atm.

Hallo

Zitat
DSL-Configuration you can do with network-manager 0.7 easily so we don't think there is a need for this in the installer atm.



As i se,the network-manager can't establish a static network, which I wnt for my Lan.


If this is right, it isa good idea,tobut a dialoin th installer, to wrote a /etc/network/interfaces .

As for the bootloder, the second screen, after you choose (no mbr) , is a little bit confusing (there were 3 items in my dialog (sda, sdb, sda11). there is no need for sda and sdb, the bootoader should only installed to mbr or / (here sda11).

Hi. I wonder why you cant exclude some packages!! Some people do NOT like for i.e. Networkmanager. I would be very happy about a minimal installation without GNOME. Just with a virtual terminal!!! I really cant understand why people are forced to use this apps although paldo is meant to be a hybrid (source and binary) system where you should be able to install whatever you want ...

Seems not to be any alternative to my Gentoo system.

Paladus,
You are able to remove those packages, but as the devels don't want anyone to come and disable the packages that may be fundamental for others, you need to understand better the packaging system of paldo so you can do that, ok?
Paldo installs the system and it actually has very few packages explicitly installed, one of them is the paldo package which is a metapackage, this package actually pulls other metapackages that come to make for example NetworkManager not easily removable.
Here are the main metapackages, all of them starts with paldo:

paldo-base
= this will pull the basis system, no X are going to be pulled, but the services the initscripts the text (console-like) editors the upkg and etc.

paldo-desktop-base
= this one is the one you're looking for, this will pull the minimal desktop needs.

paldo-desktop-*
= these will pull the applications concerning the area it says, I mean paldo-desktop-multimedia will pull multimedia X applications

paldo-desktop
= this one is the one that prevents you from removing most of the things, it pulls lots of others paldo-metapackages, this is the one that is explicitly installed by default

There are other many, and I mean many, metapackages that you can see on http://www.paldo.org/index.php?section=packages&page=main&query=paldo
If you wish a more minimal installation.. removing paldo-desktop and installing paldo-desktop-base or paldo-minimal and then installing the other packages yourself, the best I believe is creating a local repository and create a metapackage and substitute the paldo metapackage with this one.

PS.: to see the packages that are explicitly installed on your system just do
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
ls -la /var/lib/upkg/packages/*.select
