minimal local pack
« on: December 23, 2010, 03:08:13 pm »
I had this on my hdd for a long time. Having no time to work on it, I decided to release it in the current form.

Minimal local pack is nothing more than a stripped down version of the "local" dir for Dingux, containing just /sbin/main, gmenu2x, and poweroff/reboot scripts.
I know a lot of Windows users had problems creating the scripts and installing gmenu2x themselves, so they were instead choosing the bloated and outdated "localpacks". This pack should be considered as a lightweight alternative to the other packs and a good starter for new Dingux users.

Download: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,116,473

Installation:
Simply extract the contents of the archive to the root of your SD card, next to zImage and rootfs files.
Next time you boot into Dingux, a nice gmenu2x gui should appear.

PS. Since this pack lacks tvout and swap scripts, anybody should feel free to improve it. I just simply have no time for it, and OpenDingux release is coming closer every day, eventually making this legacy Dingux-aimed pack redundant.

in my opinion minamal localpack should include:

- Sience Kernel
- Rootfs with fixed tremor libs
- Gmenu + reboot/poweroff scripts
- Virtual Mouse
- Swap
- Tv-Out

With that you just only need to install the emus/games that u wan't to play.

A localpack is a localpack and it contains only "local" dir. Additionally the kernel/rootfs might change in time, so it would make the pack obsolete.

- Gmenu + reboot/poweroff scripts
That's already in the pack

- Virtual Mouse
- Swap
- Tv-Out
Feel free to add that features :)

You can already install emus/games on it and play them.

Hi,

Been away for awhile.

Is "/usr/local/gmenu2x" the same as "/boot/local/gmenu2x" when used in the local/sbin/main script?

In other words do both /usr and /boot point to the same root of the SD card?

Thanks.

/usr/local is just a symlink to /boot/local :)

Thank you, zear. Guess that'll be a place to start reconfiguring my dingux which is so litterd now it's easier to restart.
I would also appreciate somebody assembling an archive with all the things mandrake88 was talking about. Would do it myself but it's been a long time since I was browsing this forum, guess a lot of updates passed me by and I don't feel like investigating into it a lot)

Cheers bud, much appreciated! just downloaded this and will get it running tomorrow hopefully (demanding daughter allowing!), i think this should become pretty much standard with all Dingux installs. Could we sticky it with links to the latest files?

I downloaded it, and it's not really a "minimal pack", in my opinion there are too much apps (dosbox, dinimavie, gmu...).
Anyway thanks  :)

This menu. Is there a way to have a simpler (maybe like native) menu? I find this one cumbersome. Like Nero. If there is a different style menu (maybe xmb), with better icons, how would I install it? Just copy it to the applications folder?

Edit: NVM, found dinguxmb. It had instructions.
