Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Heyho together, so recently update on installation:

Issue 1554 - Installation issue for testing purpose FIXED
Issue 1555 - Installation for syslinux TESTING
Issue 1556 - No login after installation FIXED

I'm sitting next to an installed device with Hyperbola 0.4 - no not writing from as there is no application providing this for now of course. But the test on real hardware has also started: ThinkPad X60, Hyperbola 0.4 32bit (i686) running. So next is to talk about the concurrent alpha-phases to build packages in and when we create first ISO-files for development-installations and testing-purpose. Remember: We are in ALPHA for now so please have this in mind that issues occur and there is immense testing needed.

I assume it won't be beta till like two months later at least right?

Correct me if I am wrong. If its less, I will be surprised given the enormity of what you are trying to accomplish in getting rid of so much redhat garbage... hmm

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Hey zapper, for now there is no final time when we can enter BETA-phase. But the system itself is now ready for an early installation-tryout. If you want I can later give a short how-to for a little vm. Now as first windows-managers and desktop-environment lumina are available you can do even more.

No worries, I know how to use qemu somewhat... my only real issue, is, I am not sure if sound is available yet... hmm

I have tried it out a bit, but thats the only conclusion I draw so far. I hope you plan to add console-tdm, it will be a useful way to get display on, till other options come available... smile

By sound, I mean specficially for like moc or mpv.

Not sure if it works general yet, will check.

That being said, you are saying, it could be sooner, or later depending on the progress that is made in the future?

I think that's what your saying right?

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Yes Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre 0.4 will come for sure.
Besides added another issue for lumina.

At any rate, my main blocker from using it full time, that I see so far is no sound, which is good progress I would say. smile

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

mpv is also on the list for further testing video and audio, for sure. But there are even more dependencies to resolve first: Meaning also more packages to add. smile But we are making progress and going forward.

I should add, sndio immediately crashes either before I login to my window manager, or after i login to my window manager

I use rc-service sndiod status

and it says crashed.

No amount of restarting, stopping and starting makes it work yet...

I am hopeful you noticed this throgh.

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

That's odd: No I have not noticed that for now. So we should have also closer look onto sndio. Added: Mine is running here under IceWM, but I don't use this Works for me-flag. smile Could you give more details about the environment you are running?

That is interesting, Maybe fresh install?

I was using jwm btw...

And console-tdm and idk what else.

Although, this virtual machine did go from openrc to sndio and back for various reasons... and from stable to testing... so something might have broken due to this? idk.

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Hey zapper, thanks for the insights. Okay my first guess: A fresh install for 0.4 won't be bad for now. All packages have changed between 0.3.1 and 0.4. So it could be something wrong. Besides: console-tdm is also included within the repositories for testing right away. smile

Bad news, same thing happened in a fresh install.

sndio crashed... hmm

no idea whats happening.

btw, 0.4 seems to use only 51MB of ram on a fresh install with nothing open but jwm.

I suspect it would be somewhere between one third and one half if I have my other basic stuff open, redshift, volumeicon, cbatticon, etc... smile

200mbs is when I have redshift, cbatticon, volumeicon, etc...

lately in 0.3.1...

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Okay, thank you. I'll try to test this scenario later!
But speaking about usage of RAM: This is something absolutely fine. The less used, the better. smile

That was my point.

It probably uses way less cpu power too I bet. wink

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Removed issue for polygen as there are more important parts for implementation and testing. Also reset the state of lumina for wpa_supplicant and the testing of Wifi-issues.

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

decided to moved into 0.4 and done smoothly this morning smile

some testing report
--------------------------------
no sound when startup: with sndiod service added and enabled + audio group. the sound still muted per login, starting sndiod again manually in terminal fixed the problem.

video thumbnail failed with all stock file manager: tested spacefm-git in aur and the video thumbnailer works nicely (really need this for user with 4tb movies big_smile ).

default lumina player doesnt work
videoplayer king aka vlc also doesnt work
mpv lose its pseudo gui

---------------------------------------

thats all my experience report for now, not sure if another user encounter the same problem.

i think for intermediate user, v 0.4 is capable enough for everyday use.

for videos smplayer is just working great and it seems no video tearing by default which im used to in linux.

wish all the good libre and privacy future with hyperbola smile

23

Re: [Hyperbola 0.4] Testing the initial installation

Okay, as spacefm was first compiled we had no ffmpegthumbnailer, so there has to be a refresh for supporting that.
Will have a look onto the mpv and its pseudo-gui, so there will be also an update.

You say there is sound with sndio? That's very good. Could you share your hardware-configuration, especially the soundcard is here interesting. Thank you!

Alsa-sndio needs to be fixed probably then...

However, sndio when started, immediately crashes...

rc-service sndiod status tells of this...
