Gnome development in Yoper

24 01 2007

I tested the Weekly Slim ISO. It comes only with,

  • Only Terminal
  • No X or KDE
  • No default channels added too
  • The smart will be updated to fetch the packages from CD after installation
    • Insert the CD
    • Mount the cd to /media/cdrom as the CD does not get mounted when inserted (Need to explore why huh.gif )
    • Do a , smart update
    • and now install kde by, smart install kdebase kdmctrl
    • smart install gnome-base metacity gnome-vfs-monikers gtk2 pygtk
    • Then, from your KDE Login Screen, choose GNOME from the Session Type
    • smart channels –add <path>/channels.txt
    • Replace <path> with your path
  • Being that the smart updates the channels list to install packages from CD, if you have the Weekly Full ISO, then,

    For other apps like kdemultimedia, need to add the yoper repos.

    For GNOME

    We need to add lordtweety’s repo to the smart channel list. And execute,

    PLEASE DO A RESTART ONCE YOU INSTALL GNOME AS IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO START WITHOUT RESTARTING.

    Yoper Channels

    Copy the following to a file,

    [YoperMain]
    type = apt-rpm
    name = Yoper-3.0
    baseurl = [url=ftp://ftp.yoper.com/pub/yoper/yoper-3.0]ftp://ftp.yoper.com/pub/yoper/yoper-3.0[/url]
    components = rocketfuel velocity

    For example save the file as channels.txt

    Open Konsole, type the following,

    The is the Yoper Main released packages list. However if you want to play with Yoper you can add this too,

    [YoperDevel]
    type = apt-rpm
    name = Yoper-3.0 Devel
    baseurl = [url=ftp://ftp.yoper.com/pub/devel/yoper-3.0]ftp://ftp.yoper.com/pub/devel/yoper-3.0[/url]
    components = dynamite johnbon lordtweety melideux tobias musikolo

    And If you have already the RPMS in the Yoper CD as with the latest devel releases,add the CD to the channels list with this,

    [installcd]
    type = rpm-dir
    disabled = yes
    priority = 1
    path = /media/cdrom/YOPER

    And FYI, if you insert the CD and if its not automounted, do this as root,

    mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom/

    Once you add or remove a channel to Smart, please do,
    smart update to be sync with packages.

Enjoy !
