Simple and quick 'installer' shell script.

Friday, October 26 2018



Once you have booted from a LIVE osukiss install (USB or PXE) you
are prompted with a dialog screen with 4 options

Keys (Set system keyboard)
Inst (Install system)
Shell (Rescue system)
Shutdown (Poweroff system)


Select "Inst"

Disk Partitionning:
First you need to select on which disk you want install Osukiss,
The installer script will create partition on all disks listed and setup a
sofware RAID (mdadm: raid1, and raid10) if you have selected more
than one disk (disk size must be roughly equal to have raid happy).
In RAID mode, MBR record are written on all Raid disks that are assigned
to osukiss, so rebooting shouldn't be a problem.
Caution:
validations are prompted before using a disk because install
procedure use the whole disk to install Osukiss.

Program Install
Once the disk is ready, another dialog window will appeare and
ask you to select program components.

[ ] release-minimal
[ ] release-base
[ ] release-server
[ ] release-devel
[ ] release-xorg
[ ] release-lxqt
[ ] release-xfce
[ ] release-applications
[ ] release-games


Minimal is the very minimal set of programm to have a bootable Osukiss.
Server is all component needed to have a server (postgresql,mariadb,bin,ntp)
Devel is all component needed to build application (compiler, make, etc....)
Xorg regroup the basic graphic components
LXQT regroup component for lxqt desktop display
XFCE regroup component for lxqt desktop display
Applications regroup application components (web browser, accounting, video transcoder)
Games!, just two for now,
bzflag. Purpose of this games is to show 3D and sound handling.
swell-foop, a puzzle game.

We suggest to select only release-minimal the first time.
Around 130 packages are to be installed and process will be displayed on screen.

Once installation completed, you will be asked to set the root password and
to create, at least, one user.
Once all needed users are created, just select within dialog window.

Once completed, you can do "chroot /osukiss" to double check installation
and check if you find your mark within.

Now reboot and remove the USB-key, Osukiss should come up nicely


Once rebooted, you can type:
# yum list | grep release
and see a list of release (release-xxx are set of packages)

If you want graphic, type;

# yum install release-applications release-games
yum will ask you for a "go/nogo" to install +200 packages is ok, say "y"

You can now, activate the graphic mode, by typing
# /sbin/init 5

To check if everything is alright, you can switch back to command line
mode
# CTRL+ALT+F1
and come back to console mode by typing
# /sbin/init 3

Once you are satisfied, change file
/etc/inittab
to set '5' instead of '3' as initdefault mode (inittab first line)

Reboot and enjoy.
