Manjaro Only / Re: mCOLe: Progress Journey
« Last post by Spatry on Today at 07:07:46 AM »
I hope you enjoy mCOLe... On a sidenote, I am exploring the possibility of doing the future release with an Arch base instead of Manjaro. I really want to have a graphical installer and Calamares on Manjaro is in a strange state... we cannot get it to work properly and looking at their git code raises more questions than solutions. I guess it is time to ditch the training wheels and start using Linux the way it should be! No more beginner friendly.... WE ARE CLI FRIENDLY!

Wait till you see Episode 6 of CLI friendly... I am taking the series in a NEW direction!

Manjaro Only / mCOLe: Progress Journey
« Last post by gregorylock on March 17, 2019, 05:58:00 PM »
I'm planning to try the new mCOLe-19.3.3D-XFCE-Lucky13-x86_64.iso.  Today I I bought a brand new 240 GB PNY 2.5" SATAIII CS900 SSD.  On the back of the box it says.  Compatable with "Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Linux, OS X.  If I decide to report on my progress I'll give you updates in this post.

mCOLe is not Arch! and neither is "Coal" or "CoLA" so we will be spared the punishment of Dirty Helga's awful singing!

Dirty Helga has a beautiful voice.  Manjaro is based on Arch, and mCOLe is based on Manjaro.  That's Arch enough for me.  :P

I think I should buy another SSD or Hard Drive before I try installing and using mCOLe.

Manjaro Only / Re: Re: [SOLVED] mCOLe What is the MD5Sum for the ISOs?

I'm ranting against sourceforge.net because I think their design sucks, and is inefficient for the new visitor.  There are many other websites I think suck just as bad or worse, but right now I'm angry at sourceforge.


I think the check sum is so important that it should be located right next to the download button.  Instead of hidden away behind some icon.  I had to hunt for the directory of uploaded to files to even find that icon.  Here is the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.  You will find a huge download button and you can even pick which one from a list below.  But NO Hash Sums!  But if you click on the Files tab, and then click on 1-19.3.1 (Lucky 13 V2) and then the "i" icon.  Your telling me that isn't a lot of unnecessary clicking? It only takes two clicks to download the ISO and it's straightforward.  But requires 3 clicks and is not straightforward to find the hash sums.  In my opinion the files page should be completely eliminated, and put right in bottom list on the main page.

I never thought about it in the way CwF mentions.  But it is true that several distros that I use put the hash sums in an uploaded txt file.  I have no issues with that method.  The main point I'm trying to make is the new user or a user that doesn't visit that site often, shouldn't haft to hunt around the website to find the hash sums.  I also felt like they were trying to make look stupid because I did everything correctly.  I looked around, and then I did a search, and then I wrote my post.  Then I went back and found the stupid sums!  And it is only because they hid them away behind a bunch of clicking and behind an icon that isn't even labeled unless you hold your mouse over it and then it says "View Details"  I just assumed that might be the hash sums.

Manjaro Only / Re: [SOLVED] mCOLe What is the MD5Sum for the ISOs?

Sorry, no offense on that, I do understand. I stand by my point, something I think many miss. The checksum of the image should be included on the image in order to maintain the integrity of the image. The checksum generated by a third party checks the download, not the image. Similar, not the same. You trust sourceforge, so do I, still not the same thing. The record on the image goes with it, and regardless on how we come about it, the check is available for as long, and in whatever form the image exist.

Maybe just my debian ways, but I'm used to the md5sum.txt on the image that is 8-90k and includes a file based summary, so you know specifically what files have any error. Moved, copied, a year later...the check is still valid. A script loop mounts the image, reads the file and uses the info to check EVERY file, and the whole. I was thinking this process, and not a generic download integrity check.

The hash sums are generated automatically by sourceforge upon upload of the software and can be obtained easily by pressing the "i" icon next to the download... I am pretty sure I have explained this before...

The correct location is on the root of the image in a filename md5sum.txt
If it's not there it should be, it's the only way it's valid.
