i think its possible via the env script, however, a easy way to do, is to just edit /usr/portage and add lve-sources ebuilds.

with the namesys thing, that url is the place the automatic generated bk snapshots are placed.

I wrote:
Reedeman, does the LiveCD kernel support LVM2? If not, would you be able to "make it so" in the next LiveCD release, as well as include the LVM2 userspace tools?

I'm going to run /tmp, /usr/portage and /var on reiser4 but I'd like a LiveCD for "just in case" reasons. I'm using LVM2 on everything except /, /boot and my swap partition.


And something else I've tried to figure out, do I need to do the copy/mkfs/copy back from a livecd or can I do it from runlevel 1?

I have existing LVM2 partitions for just about everything. Of those, I want to change /tmp, /var and /usr/portage to reiser4.

First question is, do I need to do it from a livecd environment, or is it enough to change to runlevel 1 and do it ("it" meaning copy existing data to somewhere. mkfs the reiser4 filesystems on the 3 devices and then copy everything back again).

Second question is, does your livecd support LVM2 (device mapper) in the kernel and also have the userspace tools installed? I'd like to have a livecd I can use as an emergency rescue disc, just in case I should need it. My 2004.0 livecd has LVM2 support but obviously not reiser4, so I won't be able to use it for rescue purposes.

Were is the latest ISO and date of it?

Is gcc-3.4 part of the bootstrap or did you use your live cd, update to gcc-3.4 and emerge -e world?

there is only 1 iso.
if you want to bootstrap with 3.4.0, just unmask it in portage. and bootstrap script will use it.
but, dont report bugs to gentoo then.

Would you put the following into /etc/portage/package.keywords

sys-devel/gcc ~x86

or

sys-devel/gcc -*

How did you do yours? Would you add glibc or anything else.

=sys-libs/glibc-2.3.4* -*
=sys-devel/gcc-3.4* -*
sys-kernel/linux-headers -*
sys-devel/binutils -*

I used that in my package.keywords, I'm on stage2 now.

Thx for the ISO!!!

I could boot the liveCd, but could not see my hd's... but redeeman is 'da man and posted his spec files for making the live cd. I now have a LiveCd tuned for my system, and reiser4 as /

I am loving every second of it. I thought my system was quick before.. thanks again for doing the hard work, all I had to do was kill a few cpu cycles and work out some minor kinks.

Give a person a LiveCD and they can use it to its potential. Teach a person to build there own LiveCd and they are limited only by the size of the media :twisted:


Where are the spec files hosted?

Switched to reiser4 on / last week. Had some glitches initially, and experienced some kernel crashes because I had compiled the kernel with 4kB stacks. After I corrected this I never had a problem, so far so good!

I made some experiments unplugging the power cable and never lost any data. The amazing thing about this fs is its atomicity. For example if you edit a file and immidiately after that you unplug the power cable, after reboot you find your file exactly like it was _before_ you edited it 8O It is something like having a CVS directly on the fs, in a certain way :lol:

Thanks Redeeman for your liveCD!

personally, i hate package.keywords, and i cant see how it would help to put -* in it. however, if it works. okay.

i just unmask gcc3.4 and binutils manually.

because thats the whole point of package.keywords. In this case, the keyword happens to be set to -*, so you want to tell portage that its ok to install versions of that package with the -* keyword.

any chance we could get support for realtek usb nics?

rtl8150

In the mean time, I have a laptop with such a usb device, but redeeman's reiser4 cd doesn't have the module..

would anyone be running the livecd kernel and could build the module for me?

ATTN: Anyone installing root reiser4!!

As of version 0.5.5 of reiser4progs apparently you need to add the "rw" modifier to your fstab on the root partition in order to be able to boot, otherwise it freezes at mounting /proc. If anyone knows a better way, msg me. Thx.
