April 2nd 2022

.. ... of course, yesterday's news, were an April 1st joke, but imagine the horror!

Let's get serious again!

The images below, announced on March 30th are true, systemd/elogind/zstd free ipv4 only as far as we can disable ipv6, but you can never be sure anymore.

The reddit community reddit.com/r/joborun is active and feel free to ask anything, we will do our best. The project is maturing, core building dependencies are getting disinfected, daily, and you can safely step on joborun to built your own distro, add more repositories to the list, pacman doesn't seem to have a limit.

April 1st 2022

Major change in policy. We have decided it is too much work to avoid systemd, elogind, zstd, ipv6, etc. and it would make work so much easier to adopt all of those. This way the user benefits from "all those features" they provide us. They meaning IBM, Google, Facebook, Oracle, and the greatest of all governments home of the prior great companies.
So this way our users will be able to enjoy Gnome or Plasma desktops and guis, with all the benefits of telemetry, and instead of focusing on the core system and the software building environment, we can focus on backgrounds, color and icon themes, etc. Much more exciting graphic things beyond the boredom of compiling on an ugly terminal window.

You should be seeing the effects of changes beggining tomorrow, April 2nd, there will also be a 5.6GB .iso available with Calamares and you can net-install Gnome or Plasma from the live iso. Eat your heart outs Manjaros and Endeavours, our icon themes are better than yours.

We shall expect your feedback to our themes in our new Discord channel Joborun Discord Channel.

A few things were rearranged in the 6th alpha edition.

Many many upgrades of the past few weeks, minor corrections and changes.

A great many thanks to reddit.com/u/netphant and Saleem, who have taken an interest in Joborun and catch problems and errors in this early phase of the system. Their contribution is priceless and very appreciated. Hopefully the reward is a great system that works for them on a daily basis.

New kernels are in place linux-lts= 5.10-109 and linux= 5.15-32, both have been tested in various machines and were performing well, with the lts being lighter in ram.

As previously the steps remain the same: 1st step is installing the tar ball in a blank partition
2nd step is installing kernel of choice and bootloader
3rd step, optional, installing Xorg openbox and jwm preconfigured
4th optional step is adding s6 and 66, or staying with runit.

Each step is a single command execution, then exit chroot and reboot with either s6/66 or runit.

The following alpha 02 tarball image was published, our 2nd, and installing joborun is now relatively simple. There is a link to download the tarball followed by a sha256sum for the tarball (sha256sum jobo.alpha-02.tar.xz should give you an identical figure as the sum file contains, if not the image is either corrupted or not authentic).

Follow the wiki instruction on how to place the contents of the archive into a new partition, chroot, then move to the /home/make directory as user:make, and see the scripts about completing the installation, choosing whether to create a graphic environment, and also there is a script about installing the necessary s6/66 packages and rebooting. The 66 environment is already configured in an equivalent mix of services with that of runit.
