Re: Please STOP the growing

We do real hard work to try to keep it as small as possible. For example most package need GTK3 except XFCE which still requires GTK2. Normally both versions of GTK should just be installed but it would use more space. Had to make many custom versions of the packages to remove the dependency on GTK3...

Re: NetworkManager is unfortunately mandatory for ssh, nscd

Network-Manager is really great for configuring the network in the graphical environment especially wifi networks, but unfortunately the command line network configuration tools conflict with it. The dependency on "net" is there for a good reason. These initialization scripts are provided by gentoo ...

Re: Please turn on kernel option CONFIG_X86_X32

Thanks for the suggestion, this has been implemented in the latest beta version.
Can you test this new feature (see if you can chroot to an x32 system) ?

Re: Malware/virus/whatnot? Why has SysResCD become 40% fatte

The size increase was due to the upgrade of gcc from 4.4 to 4.6 in recent releases. It has been downgraded in SystemRescueCd-3.7.0 and it allowed to save 20 MB on the size of the ISO.

Re: /etc/conf.d/net use a "wrong" format in 2.5.0-beta001

Has the behaviour changed between sysresccd-2.4.2 and 2.5.0-beta001 ?
Or did you have the same problem before.

Between these two versions I have removed the line which sets the mac address of each mac address in this config file as I do not expect NetworkManager to reallocate the interfaces anyway.

Re: PXE boot partial broken in 3.4.2-beta001

Thanks for this bug report. This has been fixed in sysresccd-3.4.2-beta003. The fix is to consider the IP address as static after DHCP has been executed in the first stage of the boot process. The init script which is embedded in the initramfs gets the dynamic address and writes it to /newroot/etc/c...
