In Topic: how to change my password?

Yesterday, 09:51 PM

Well, the password part is easy, but Bodhi currently does not have a GUI for that so you need terminology.

passwd

After typing this command it will ask for your existing password,

Next it asks for the new password,

Next it asks you to confirm the new password.

Resulting in a friendly message that your password is updated.

 

In theory changing the username is also a simple command, BUT

After the change you need to change the name of your home folder using another command and you should realize that you probably have lots of stuff on your machine that refers to the old username and those don't get updated. Like bookmarks, just to name an example. Think about it. When you really want to do this there are nice methods though they involve some more then just a command in terminal.

 

Enjoy,

In Topic: Bodhi 4.5.0 Testing ISO Images

While looking for /boot/efi I accidentally found some partial explanation for the growing ISOs.

64bit: In /boot are 2 files vmlinuz..... kernel version, one for 4.13.0-17 (kernel was removed) and one for the running kernel 4.13.0-32.

appack: In /boot are 3 files vmlinuz..... kernel version, one for 4.13.0-17 (kernel was removed), one for the running kernel 4.13.0-32 and another one for a 4.4 kernel. 

Each of those weigh ~7MB.

Just got time to look at the apppack version.

 

Headers installed are for 4.13.0-17. Better purge those and replace with linux-headers-$(uname -r). Learned that expression from you btw.  :)

@ nomko & @ vvkozmenko

 

I get the feeling you are way off topic with your latest comments.

 

If you want to discuss this further please start a topic of your own in the Lounge section.

4.5.0 "issues"
 
Latest bodhibuilder package is at version 2.2.7 (.deb available at sourceforge)
the 2.2.5 used for the ISO causes double entries in /etc/bodhibuilder/uefi/pool/ (for ~ 7 MB).
 
Legacy uses the 3.16.0 kernel + headers, but I also found this on the legacy ISO (same as in 4.4.0):
Package: linux-headers-4.9.0-4-common
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: kernel
Installed-Size: 44253
Thats ~43 MB for nothing?
 
64bit No header files installed ? We had those present in 4.4.0.
 
In general the 64 bit (+ 19 MB, even without headers) and the legacy (+ 28 MB) have grown substantially in size, the appack a modest + 9MB)
 
Enjoy,
Charles
