Fixed my keyboard and I found something interesting - Ventoy is grouping platform-related binaries into $CARCH directories, so most of our symlinks to system binaries are missed, which, is expected to be fixed in my latest commit d914b8ff9cd2 bumping pkgrel to 5. The commit also includes one bug patch hunk on, fixing the usage of uname, and a small verbosity recovery of packaging log output.

If any strange behaviour happened after this, leave us a message and hopefully we would handle it fast.

@Kr1ss That was impressive! Nice patch!

So I've extended the patch so that both the ventoy CLI and webUI are now logging to /var/log instead of /opt/ventoy. There's also now /usr/bin/ventoyweb to start the webserver.

Unfortunately we do still need root in order to write to the USB storage. I guess we can now remove the post_install note though, since permanent filesystem trees aren't touched any more.

Ooops. Thanks ! :)

@Kr1ss: You forgot something. ;)

Kr1ss commented on 2021-02-27 19:25

Okay, I'll push a pkgrel bump and include an install file with a note.

DuckSoft commented on 2021-02-27 18:37

No offense but I think Ventoy author is not aware of that FHS, XDG or anything else. I will write a report to the upstream and hopefully this will improve.

Currently let's just include that WebUI directory and leave everything as-is, @Kriss. Leave a caveats note in postinstall may also be helpful.

ps: My keyboard is broken and I typed these on my phone...

@DuckSoft @yochananmarqos Any idea why this would need root anyways, besides of writing to /opt tree ?

i may want to split the WebUI outside ventoy-bin, then patch the source & build that webui as another package.

That sounds reasonable.

DuckSoft commented on 2021-02-27 18:20

@yochananmarqos inspected the code carefully... a quick and dirty fix is to put WebUI directory back then.

But there's something awful: it's executed as root, but he's putting crap log.txt directly in the binary directory, which is...

I'd try hard to fix the package, but if things are going worse, i may want to split the WebUI outside ventoy-bin, then patch the source & build that webui as another package.

Does the new Ventoy Web GUI work for anyone else?

sudo /opt/ventoy/

I just get a 404 error opening
