Guess what @everyone! Yep, another one of my all-too-frequent announcements to y’all:smile:. But this one, I think you might actually like! For thanks to @Azaiel‘s help, we now have created our OWN “Ranking Mirrors…” popup box for Cnchi. I’ve tested it in an ISO, and it actually WORKS!!!! As such, I am currently uploading it to Sourceforge for us all. Once that is done, I’ll push the code on up to Gitlab too!
So I like to think our Cnchi problems are finally behind us for now :smiley:
:tada:

Oh! Just wanted to offer some more details about this fix @everyone :smiley: . I know I had talked about creating a simple timer to countdown to when the mirrors SHOULD be done ranking, but like @Azaiel┬ápointed out, that really wouldn’t be reliable because you’d ever know for sure if the mirror ranking had finished before the timer ended, or was somehow still ongoing. So… I created a script that continuously reads the /tmp/cnchi.log file and offers a warning popup when it reads the line that announces the mirror ranking is beginning. Then, it simultaneously runs another function that continuously reads that same file for the line that declares the ranking process done and complete – which in turn then responds by creating another popup to say something clever like, “Done!” and then disappears after a second or so :smiley:

In fact, it appears that new ISO is already up on Sourceforge!!!
:smiley:
Azaiel
Wow — how amazing!
Keegan
I’m pushing the new code up to Gitlab for you all to play with now…..
Azaiel

Yay! Code to break :smiley:
Keegan

Test away!
bwahahaha….
Last series of #announcements I think for the day @everyone :smiley: . But… I just wanted to let you all know that the new code for our new (and uploaded) ISO has now been pushed on up to Gitlab!!! :tada:
Keegan
I know, I said that the above announcement would be the last one. But no… I’ve got yet another for you @everyone! So here it is: short and sweet. I just made an announcement on our forums about this new ISO, found here: https://rebornos.freeforums.net/thread/587/finally-fully-stable-working-iso In the next few days I will be sure to write up a release article as well as update our Reborn Maintenance app too :smiley:

Actually, BRB — stalking some cheesecake
Keegan
See you soon then!
:wave:
Cheesecake stalking sounds like a fun pasttime… could I join perhaps?
Azaiel
Only if you can outrun me :stuck_out_tongue:
Keegan
:smile:
Are you sure there’s not some sort of form I have to fill out first too?
TriVoxel
:smile:
Azaiel
No, I’ve got minions taking care of that for me :wink:
Why do you think you’ve been filling out so much pointless paperwork all day today?
I need to protect the cheesecake at all costs.

Oh no! Are you behind the DMV’s inefficiency too????
It’s a nightmare come true!!!!!!!!
(running around in circles screaming with my arms in the air like they do in the cartoons now..)
Azaiel
lmao
The DMV’s inefficiency is self-inflicted.
Keegan
Ahhh… that makes sense. Not even a master cheesecake protector could create chaos on that kind of scale!
Azaiel
Good news everyone! I finally got the Pre-ALPHA uploaded for ArchPi-Reborn featuring the XFCE desktop!
With that being said – this is in such a pre-Alpha state that it has none of the following: Installation Instructions, Promise of any functionality, or a feature list.
To install download the compressed image file, unzip it, and use dd to write to an SD card.
You must have at least 4.1GB free on your SD card, and a minimum size of 8GB is recommended.
Keegan
Yay!
:tada:
That’s amazing!
Checking out now…
:smiley:
Keegan
Absolutely incredible! Maybe I can include this in our release article I am working on now…
Keegan
