Hi, people! I have good and bad news today.
The latest release of my Live image is based on Leap 42.2 Beta 1:
I've got to solve one of its issues:
3) LiveDVD asks for root password although it is empty
(a Live media I've made previously for Leap 42.1 was not affected by that issue)
A Brazilian guy who is subscribed to this mailing list suggested me
taking a look at the openSUSE Tumbleweed LiveDVD. I inspected its KIWI
And I found a command that was missing in my config.sh script.
Detailed info about the issue and its solution you can find here:
The other 2 issues are still open, though.
Your best bet
would be to discuss your progress so far and what next
steps on the correct mailinglist - that would be
I will do it.
I subscribed to the openSUSE Factory mailing list and mailed them:
But nobody has answered me there yet :(
I also know of others who are working on this for Leap
I want to get in touch with them, let's work together! :-D
Also see https://en.opensuse.org/Derivatives#Other_community_live_CDs
especially the link to "openSUSE Leap 42.1 live cds".
Thank you for that link. I downloaded all of those Live images, tried
them on VirtualBox, and guess what? I found out that my issues are not
Let's recap them:
1) I'm unable to ping, when I try to do so I get
the following error message:
ping: error while loading shared libraries: libcap.so.2: cannot stat shared object:
Also suffer from that issue:
- openSUSE Argon (as of 30-Aug-2016)
- GeckoLinux Plasma Stable
On the other hand, I can successfully ping using any of these:
- openSUSE Krypton (as of 31-Aug-2016)
- Marble in a Box
- Gears on Gallium
- KDE 5 by kolAflash
I will study their sources to try to understand why some can ping and
why some cannot. Also, I will get in touch with their developers to
see if we can work around that issue together.
2) Live system loses keyboard configuration after
initial setup, it looks like YaST Firstboot does not store the keyboard layout I select
Among those images, KDE 5 by kolAflash and Lietukas were the only ones
to use YaST Firstboot. Using both, if I select Portuguese (Brazilian)
as both my language and keyboard layout, the translation is applied,
but the keyboard layout is not.
I reported that issue in detail to the YaST Firstboot project at
GitHub some time ago, but nobody has answered me yet:
Maybe should I report that issue in another place?
Any help would be really appreciated.
Thank you once more!
