-su: patch: command not found

Linux Questions - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 20:33
Hello fellow Slackers, I am now using a virtual machine to create packages instead of on my system directly. I started with src2pkg but when I follow https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...or-4175703841/, I get the following: Quote: /usr/src/src2pkg/src2pkg-helpers# patch -p1 < /tmp/src2pkg.patch
-su: patch: command not found I have admin access, but is it missing something from the installation? Thank you for your time.

How do Linux users clean or wipe out RAM memories?

Linux Questions - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 20:09

I am learning Puppy Linux by playing it on a bootable USB flash stick.

Three days ago, BionicPup32 Light downloaded Google Chrome and installed it and visited YouTube and New York Times and NBC News. Everything was normal. After a restart, Light blocked all connections to these websites and other websites. Light repeated the blocking everytime the OS was started and/or restarted.

I noticed that every time BionicPup32 started, it first loaded the files from RAM and then started the OS.

Then, I have questions for using Puppy Linux:
1. Is it true that the OS loads files from RAM for starting the OS?
2. How do Puppy Linux users clean or wipe out the mistake-memories kept on RAM?
3. If mistakes can not be wiped out from RAM, what to do if once a mistake is made?

Thanks.

Firefox/snap in Mate 22.04.1 problem

Linux Questions - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 20:06
Hi all,
slowly I get a problem with snap. I got tired of the notification that I hvae to refresh Firefox with
Quote: snap refresh firefox and when I try that, after closing all Firex windows, I still get the message that firefox is still running.
After that I removed Firefox with
Quote: snap remove firefox and got the cofirmation ok.
Then I installed the repository for Firefox, and Firefox.
Then I get the message that Firefox is allready the newest version, even if not present.
After this I think I will seek a disro which doesn't rremind me so much on Windows, where it is more or less impossible to remove MS-software.
Tjis is more a statement then ask for help.
It's a pitty that this snap, which really reminds far to much on Windows get so common.
Bye.

Asking LQ for new thread for my own linux distro.

Linux Questions - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 17:25
Totally Built Linux Distro

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tot...t-linux-distro
https://totally-built-linux-distro.s...com/index.html

Build all of a light linux distro non-stop and no buildfails "with just a few commands" (several end to end).

I think some people would like to "build it all" even if they do not whish to regularly use the result (a "less configured" distro than ubuntu or gentoo). I could be wrong but many source distros are popping up?

I think people should see there "is TBL" which can be tried with very little or 0 failure rate that people with "little experience" can do.

(it's for building linux up to where it can run firefox-bin more than it is "a distro", the distro part is smaller, detatched, and not the goal, it's all upfront no mystery downloads no pacman)

I don't want to "keep advertising" where not allowed, but someone said I should "email Jeremy" and I could not find the email.

I think some distros in the Distributions forum have very few hits and re-distribute RH or UBU bins but configured. That is how I calculate if TBL having enough value being in the list.

Bedrock Saves The Day

Linux Questions - Wed, 12/14/2022 - 16:39
I just rebooted after an upgrade and... some combination the Arch kernel & init ram disk put me into a cold boot loop. Had I not been in Bedrock, panic would have ensued, since I could not even boot, let alone try to figure out the cause of the problem. My boot loader was set with extra menu options to boot Bedrock with a kernel & init ram disk from another stratum. I did so. Whew, running OK. :)

Yay for Bedrock!

Has anyone else got any Bedrock Saves The Day stories?
