A couple of change requests against the 4.2.0 release

Postby vanepp » 27 May 2014, 23:32

Since this seems to be the place to request changes (please redirect me it it isn't!) here are two minor
ones from the 4.2.0 release:

First the usb_inst.sh script won't actually install on a 500 meg USB stick because it only has 477 megs
on it. 4.2.0 does fit (just barely :-)) with the 500 set to 477.

*** /mnt/custom/customcd/isoroot/usb_inst.sh.orig 2014-05-27 16:09:05.000000000 +0000
--- /mnt/custom/customcd/isoroot/usb_inst.sh 2014-05-27 14:50:52.000000000 +0000
***************
*** 7,13 ****

logfile="/var/tmp/usb_inst.log"
TMPDIR="/var/tmp/usb_inst.tmp"
! MINSIZEMB=500
PROGIMG="${0}"
PROGLOC="$(dirname ${0})"
CDFILES=('sysrcd.dat' 'sysrcd.md5' 'version' '???linux/initram.igz'
--- 7,13 ----

logfile="/var/tmp/usb_inst.log"
TMPDIR="/var/tmp/usb_inst.tmp"
! MINSIZEMB=476
PROGIMG="${0}"
PROGLOC="$(dirname ${0})"
CDFILES=('sysrcd.dat' 'sysrcd.md5' 'version' '???linux/initram.igz'

second on the xfce4 desktop if you right click to get the menu and then select terminal emulator you
get a dialog box where your only choice is xfce4-terminal (rather than the terminal as desired) this change
to /root/.config fixes that:

*** /mnt/custom/customcd/files/root/.config/xfce4/helpers.rc.orig 2014-05-27 14:13:26.000000000 +0000
--- /mnt/custom/customcd/files/root/.config/xfce4/helpers.rc 2014-05-27 14:13:50.000000000 +0000
***************
*** 1,4 ****
! TerminalEmulator=Terminal
FileManager=custom-FileManager
WebBrowser=midori

--- 1,4 ----
! TerminalEmulator=xfce4-terminal
FileManager=custom-FileManager
WebBrowser=midori

Perhaps someone would add these to the release stream?
