Fido Progress


So far I have built a slacko64 iso image with Fido available with his own 'home'. It boots fine and on shutdown nothing is changed in the routine that anyone would notice except that /home/fido is created using /root as the skeleton.

Here is a snap (click to enlarge):



What works:
  • browsing

  • text editing

  • package manager

  • virtual terminal (urxvt)

  • mounting drives

  • word processing

  • spread sheet

  • paint

  • videos (mplayer)

  • music (pmusic)


  • What doesn't
  • drive icon markers inconsistent

  • hot plugging

  • sfs management

  • updates management

  • ptheme

  • menu refresh

  • firewall tray icon


  • This is only fairly initial testing.There is probably a bunch more stuff that doesn't work but much of the gui stuff (gtkdialog/xdialog) will be rectified by adding the following line to the top of the application:

    [ $UID -ne 0 ] && exec sudo -A ${0} ${@}


    - which just pops the "askpass" box to type the password. For simplicity, fido and root passwords are the same - entered at first shutdown on creation of fido.

    So, plenty to do - most of it low level ugly stuff.

    Note: this version of slacko64 is built from the woof-CE xorg branch.
