RELEASE: mCOLe 19.3 "Lucky Thirteen"
« on: April 25, 2016, 08:52:56 AM »

INSTALLATION:
mCOLe uses an advanced commandline installer which offers more
options than conventional graphical installation tools.

From the menu select the terminal. Run 'setup' from the command
prompt. Follow all items in order from the menu. A video install
guide is on the desktop for those of you who are uncomfortable with
using the command line...

--------------------------------------------------------------------
To remove the welcome screen at startup:
Menu > session and Startup > application Autostart > uncheck
mCOLe Welcome and press close.

Welcome to mCOLe 19.3 "Lucky Thirteen"
THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL BUILD. YOU MAY ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS WITH
INSTALLATION OR UPDATING YOUR SYSTEM. SUPPORT FOR THIS BUILD IS
ONLY AVAILABLE AT:

https://www.cupoflinux.com/SBB/index.php?action=forum#c10
THE MANJARO COMMUNITY FORUMS ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE
YOU SUPPORT FOR THIS BUILD. THE DEVELOPER OF THIS BUILD IS NOT
PART OF THE OFFICIAL MANJARO TEAM AND WILL NOT MONITOR THEIR
FORUMS REGARDING THIS SOFTWARE.

mCOLe 19.3 "Lucky Thirteen" addresses an issue the Official Manjaro
website has not resolved. Manjaro has dropped support for isolinux
and switched to grub2 on their install media. This essentially has
made it impossible for many types of computers and notebooks (bios
and legacy uefi machines) to boot official Manjaro Live media. Many
of these machines surpass the Manjaro minimum requirements. Members
of the Cup of Linux community have been affected by this problem
and decided to take action.

Read about it here on the Manjaro community boards:

Having a cordial history with the Manjaro developer, PhilM; I
opened a dialog asking for assistance in this matter. While awaiting
a response, I turned to online resources for possible solutions. The
original Manjaro-iso software is a fork of Archiso and I decided to
follow that route. My version, "Coliso" is a merge of code from the
Arch and Arco Linux projects modified to work with Manjaro. At the
time of this writing I still have not heard from PhilM. I fully
understand he has a small team and may be overwhelmed with support
requests due to the popularity of Manjaro as a whole. I wish PhilM
well and I sincerely hope this contribution will enable more people
to enjoy Manjaro.

I am more of an artist than a programmer so there may be a few bugs
in the system. The Cup of Linux community seeks volunteers to help us
with maintaining this build and squashing bugs. Please visit me on
cupoflinux.com and share your thoughts.

Warm regards,

Spatry

Some of you reported PGP errors when installing or updating packages. Here is the fix for the problem:


Make sure your /etc/pacman.conf looks like this:
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
#
# /etc/pacman.conf
#
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#
# GENERAL OPTIONS
#
[options]
# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
CacheDir = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir      = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
#HookDir     = /etc/pacman.d/hooks/
HoldPkg      = pacman glibc manjaro-system
# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst    = manjaro-system archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
#UseDelta    = 0.7
Architecture = auto

IgnorePkg   =
#IgnorePkg   =
#IgnoreGroup =

#NoUpgrade   =
#NoExtract   =

# Misc options
#UseSyslog
Color
#TotalDownload
# We cannot check disk space from within a chroot environment
CheckSpace
#VerbosePkgLists

# By default, pacman accepts packages signed by keys that its local keyring
# trusts (see pacman-key and its man page), as well as unsigned packages.
SigLevel    = Required DatabaseOptional
LocalFileSigLevel = Optional
#RemoteFileSigLevel = Required

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local
# keyring can then be populated with the keys of all official Manjaro Linux
# packagers with `pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro`.

#
# REPOSITORIES
#   - can be defined here or included from another file
#   - pacman will search repositories in the order defined here
#   - local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files
#   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages
#     have identical names, regardless of version number
#   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture
#
# Repository entries are of the format:
#       [repo-name]
#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
# uncommented to enable the repo.
#

# The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
# repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately
# after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

[core]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[mCOLe64]
SigLevel = Never
Server = http://www.cupoflinux.com/mCOLe-Repo/mCOLe64/

# If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
# enable the multilib repositories as required here.

[multilib]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

# An example of a custom package repository.  See the pacman manpage for
# tips on creating your own repositories.
#[custom]
#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.eduThen run these in order:
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
sudo pacman-mirrors -f0
sudo rm -fr /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Syyu
If the above does not work... REMOVE ALL KEYS as shown below and start over at the top of this list.
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
sudo rm /etc/pacman.d/gnupgIf that does not work.... Try my DIRTY TRICK as a last resort: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. You can then discard your tinfoil hat and enjoy updates without those annoying key checks! HAH!
If you BREAK the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, I WILL SHOOT YOU!
