Request to add: python3-multibootusb_xxxx_all

#1 Post by oops » Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:12 pm

Hello,
A request to add (see via fehlix topic) python3-multibootusb_9.2.0-1_all

MultiBootUSB is a cross platform software written in python which allows you to install multiple live linux on a USB disk non destructively and option to uninstall distros. Try out the world's first true cross platform multi boot live usb creator for free.

http://multibootusb.org/page_guide/
https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 60#p459460
http://multibootusb.org/page_download/

Dépendencies on Linux:
MultiBootUSB depends on the following packages under Linux:
python3-pyqt5
p7zip-full
parted
util-linux
python3-pyudev
mtools
python3-dbus
python3-six

apt-get install python3-pyqt5 p7zip-full parted util-linux python3-pyudev mtools python3-dbus python3-six


" Install above packages using your package manager. Remember that package name may not be identical for all distros. You need to search equivalent package for your distro and install it.
You must uninstall your previous installation of MultiBootUSB, if you have done it earlier.
Download source code of stable version from here or development version from here
Extract to local directory and move in to multibootusb directory.
Issue sudo python3 ./multibootusb command to start GUI"

Does it actually work with MX/antiX? I mean running either with our F menus live on the stick with or without persistence?

Not with my first tests. They are fairly close, to have syslinux running, I assume some tricks with the menu generation might be failing.
I looked a bit into this.... perhaps later ... :snail:
The grub menu works including persistence in BIOS mode also, even the grub-menu is intended for UEFI, grub seems to be
resistant and ignores the efi modules. memtest-efi of course will not run in bios mode.
In addition they do provide an extraction mode of the ISO, which than becomes the normal fromiso boot, which need some adjustments anyway.
At least a nice alternative to boot from the ISO.

Yes it's mostly for that, by this way, all Livecds work (into directory: ../multibootusb/iso/*.iso ... also Slitaz rolling v5 works via grub menu (tested with qemu inside too), super_grub2_disk, plop too, sytemrescuecd, ... Not tested all possibilities and combinations yet. and not the puppy fehlix ;-)
(nota: quemu works only with -enable-kvm ( kernel module) ... but the entier line is shown into the terminal, so, in this case, it's possible to remove "-enable-kvm " by hand.

Indeed the KVM/Qemu option to run an ISO works great, in addition some tweaking regarding screen resolution recommended. I could run Antix17.1 and MX17.1 ISO similar to running from VirtualBox.
ANd you can keep kvm (kernel virtualization enabled) as long as you CPU support hardware virtualization, which you can check the cpu-flags for vmx (intel) or svm (AMD) with inxi, which you need further to check/to enable in the BIOS. We might try to figure out why syslinux menu (the menu with F1..F6.. function-key menu) is not showing up.

Right, but it also depends of the kernel version (and or configuration of modules).
