Jan van Wijk, author of DFSee, is likely very well acquinted with the structures of several file systems. You might drop him a line.

I just read the ticket. The most important issue is in the first line that diver wrote: "You can't update rpm alone". He also wrote: "As a yum update should work of course", which is the CLI command.So, first you nseemed to have missed that first info, then diver failed to clearly indicate that what he wrote was the CLI command. It goes from bad to worse after that. Clearly miscommunication for which you are as much to to blame as the other party. My advice: apologise for the misunderstandings and possible overreactions  on your part and ask to reopen the ticket. See what happens from there.

I have tried to install ArcaOS to E: with selecting custom install and selecting F: to install the Unix environment to. On F: lives an existing yum/rpm/anpm environment. The installer hangs at the point it is trying to install the unix environment- The last log entry I see is:

Boot drive: E:
Destination: F:

I have tried moving etc\rpm, etc\yum and user\lib\rpm away from F: but it didn't make a difference. Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour?
Installing with unix environment to E: works as expected. I could simply edit the config,sys and delete the unix stuff from E: as a workaround but prefer to work out if this is a bug first (The installer hang itself IS a bug, it encounters a problem and does not report it).
As far as I'm aware it should be perfectly ok to share a unix env between two bootable partitions on a third partition because the rpm database is on the unixroot partition, so stuff should stay in sync.

Reported to Arca Noae as ticket

Hi Roderick
Can you post the log about cdrecord ? (You can open the and copy paste that to the forum).
sorry, I already had the DVD Tools uninstalled before I read your reply, so no log left. I might try another install and keep it in mind then.
From what I understand about ACPI from AN is that its not something that is official supported. (Also based on what David mentioned at Warpstocks).
Hm, not quite sure what this means, I thought the ACPI is provided by AN?


I think what Roderick means is that power management in ACPI is not supported by Arca Noae. If I remember correctly Davis said at Warpstock because it is hardware vendor specific.

If i remember correctly Lewis Rosenthal in his presentation at Warpstock Europe last year mentioned this. I think it is as Eric Ericslon says. Makes sense too. Prioritised support is what commercial users need.

The singer?

There is checkini from wptools, I assume you mean that- There is also Unimaint, with which you can also repair ini files. Perhaps that does what you want.

Simple install with default settings works well here.

Now that is very interesting.  What is it patched for becomes the obvious question but I suspect that you are not allowed to divulge that information.

Doug mentioned the much better behaviour re upper shared memory. So at a guess....

ArcaOS 5.0: Blue Lion is coming

Six months time, maybe. 

A few days seems more likely. I was not part of the beta test team but I have installed a beta version on my pc today. As far as I can tell the drivers are the latest versions i.e. acpi.psd 3.23.05 is able to use much higher irq then before. I see another bootloader (arcaloader 1.04), kernel 14.200.

A list of tested hardware would be handy, I agree- I suspect however that that is hardly a priority at the moment.

Here are some answers, this was just posted on the arca noae site:

 ArcaOS 5.0: Blue Lion is coming

The final beta for ArcaOS 5.0 is due for release to beta testers within hours. We’ve spent considerable time nailing down the last of what we consider to have been critical issues (likely installation pitfalls) to ensure that our users are able to get the operating system installed and get on with using and enjoying the new version as soon as possible. While our intent was to provide more details along the way, our focus has remained on the software, and as we are all engineers here, in one form or another, we’ve all been engaged in developing and testing.

Meanwhile, some announcements:

Pricing for ArcaOS 5.0 will be in two tiers, set apart by the level and length of support and maintenance bundled with each. The personal license will retail for $129, with an introductory price of $99 for the first 90 days following release. This includes six months of support and maintenance updates and fixes. The commercial license is priced at $229, and includes one year of support and maintenance. Subscription services will be available for each version and it will be possible to bundle extended support and maintenance subscriptions at the time of ArcaOS license purchase.

Volume discounts will be available, as well, with different discount levels for personal and commercial licenses.

Hi Andreas,

Can you prove your claim that almost rpm package is broken? Everything I have installed here (>100) seems to work fine.
