Just a question: Have you edited all the suggested config files or only the others.cfg?Victor Chew wrote:@Icecube: Thanks! I have fixed the Parted Magic menu problem as you suggested.
. It was the first time that I made a color scheme for an isolinux menu. I don't know if you have seen or tried it before, but the colors are not everywhere the same when you use the same color code. I just figured it out why this is the case; I just saw that in the menu title is also set to bold which makes that the color code for brown foreground will be displayed yellow. I though that the bold thing meant the same as in a normal text editor . Now it makes sense to me that there are more color codes available in the DISPLAY FILE FORMAT mode, while in fact there are the same number of different colors available .Victor Chew wrote:As to the color scheme, I will try out yours for 5.0b3 with a slight mod: I have restored the menu selection bar by tweaking "MENU COLOR SEL".
Yes, the multi-color message is too loud. I was the first time that I made one when there is so much text on a page . I don't know if you are going to include the GUI for F-prot or Clam-Av (see the Antivirus topic), but if you do, you probably have to assign a text message to "F2", so that the text gets more space and that the colors don't make you blind .Victor Chew wrote:I also find the multi-color messages that you proposed too loud (hee hee!), but I think making certain keywords bold-faced will be a nice addition.
You can use Notepad2, maybe it works also in Notepad++ (I didn't test it) or in other text editors. Open the file that you want to edit. Go with the cursor to the place where you want to insert the ASCII codes.Victor Chew wrote:Do you have any editor that you use to add those ANSI codes? Currently I am using PSPad hex editor for this purpose, but it would be nice if there is a WYSIWYG alternative.
Code: Select all
<FF> <FF> = <Ctrl-L> = ASCII 12 Clear the screen, home the cursor. Note that the screen is filled with the current display color. <SI><bg><fg> <SI> = <Ctrl-O> = ASCII 15 Set the display colors to the specified background and foreground colors, where <bg> and <fg> are hex digits, corresponding to the standard PC display attributes: 0 = black 8 = dark grey 1 = dark blue 9 = bright blue 2 = dark green a = bright green 3 = dark cyan b = bright cyan 4 = dark red c = bright red 5 = dark purple d = bright purple 6 = brown e = yellow 7 = light grey f = white Picking a bright color (8-f) for the background results in the corresponding dark color (0-7), with the foreground flashing. <SUB> <SUB> = <Ctrl-Z> = ASCII 26 End of file (DOS convention).
Also memdisk is updated. And chain.c32 gets a lot of extra options.* Change to the A20 algorithm which *MIGHT* help systems that have systems which freeze when Syslinux is used with USB keyboards. Note that this has been hard do verify, so I would greatly appreciate feedback on it.
* SYSLINUX: VFAT long filename support.
Complete changelog: http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/Changelog* MEMDISK: Any image less than 4096K (4 MB) is treated as a floppy disk. The geometry-guessing code will recognize all common extended formats, but it is still possible some very exotic formats need geometry specification. Large floppies and very small harddisks still need explicit specification.
* chain.c32: option "swap" to support swapping of BIOS drive numbers. This is necessary to boot certain operating systems (DOS, Windows) from a secondary drive.
* chain.c32: option "file=" to support loading a boot file from the SYSLINUX filesystem instead of loading the boot sector from the drive.
* chain.c32: option "seg=" to control the load location.
* chain.c32: option "ntldr=" as a shorthand for "seg=0x2000 file="; use this to load one of WinNT's loaders:
chain.c32 hd0 1 ntldr=/MiniNT/setupldr.bin
Note that the file needs to be in the SYSLINUX filesystem.
* chain.32: options "freedos=" and "msdos="/"pcdos=" as shorthands for "seg=0x60 file=" and "seg=0x70 file=" respectively; use this to load FreeDOS's kernel.sys, MS-DOS's io.sys or PC-DOS's ibmbio.sys.
* chain.c32: support "boot" as the drive specification, indicating the drive from which it was booted (for syslinux/extlinux).
* SYSLINUX/EXTLINUX: support "localboot" with the same feature set as ISOLINUX.
* chain.c32: fix booting from logical partitions (Sergey Vlasov.)
All the *.cfg files.Just a question: Have you edited all the suggested config files or only the others.cfg?
Updated in 5.0b3. Thanks!There is also a new syslinux available (3.70).
Yes. I just included ClamAV and X-FProt. Had problems with your clamav-definitions.7z (downloaded but bad archive), so I used freshclam to grab the latest and created my own .7z file.Are you going to include more antivirus programs or not? I don't use windows any more so I don't need them for myself. If you don't want to include other virus scanners and if nobody else asks about it, I probably won't work further on it. I already compiled "Clam-Av" (open source) and a GUI for F-prot (67 kiB).
This is as PM'd to the LinuxTracker member 'ubcd'Victor Chew wrote:UBCD V5.0b3 is now available for download as a torrent download.
- Updated syslinux to V3.70.
- Updated fdubcd.img with as702's version.
- Added ClamAV and X-FProt, contributed by Icecube.
- Adopted Icecube's new color theme.
- Added "Back to UBCD" from Parted Magic's boot menu.
I will try to compile ClamTk as a GUI for ClamAv. The previous try (some weeks ago) failed.Victor Chew wrote:Do you have a ClamAV GUI that you wanna share as well?
Cool, Thumbs up.Victor Chew wrote:@johncoom:
Thanks for letting me know. No evil intentions on my part. I simply forgot, 'cos it was quite some time since I last used LinuxTracker.
I have made the necessary changes to comply with with LinuxTracker's site rules.
that's harsh, buddy. i did make sure to leave my torrent going after i had finished downloading.The Piney wrote:In the 13+ hours it took me to download the 214MB, I uploaded over 900MB.
