I see on requirements you have under linux hicsmagick but it is unable to locate the package. Is this http://www.graphicsmagick.org/programming.html? What should I do?

so the package you want is graphicsmagick, it can’t find that?
sudo apt-get install -y —-no-install-recommends graphicsmagick

I am doing apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends build-essential bzip2 curl ca-certificates git graphicsmagick python
oops oh duh
I didnt see it was graphicsmagick and thought it said hicsmagick I feel stupid now. Sorry

32-bit eh? Does reaction build work there?
Brent Hoover
@zenweasel
Dec 07 2017 02:35
I think reaction build has been removed hasn’t it?
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 02:36
it has indeed, but I seem to remember there being issues with docker on 32-bit (though they can be worked around, look at docker on 32-bit raspberryPi for example)

Josh, any tips for installing Linux on a laptop? I got this Windows computer now for testing and want to pul Linux on it as well. Ubuntu still a good bet?
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 02:38
yep tons, but I guess it really depends on the hardware, UEFI vs legacy, none of them seem to be the same
if its your first install ubuntu is not a bad choice as it has lots of proprietary drivers included by default
Brent Hoover
@zenweasel
Dec 07 2017 02:39
it’s far from my first install, but first in a couple of years and I don’t have hours and hours to tweak it
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 02:40
archlinux also includes everything under the sun, but is a bit more advanced, the hours and hours you speak of might be present on arch

there is also the unofficial debian non-free iso I successfully used on a 'baytrail' laptop recently, and baytrail can be a pain

Cool
Josh Cox

Dec 07 2017 02:42
when in doubt let the install complete with no GUI, reboot, then use tasksel after you verified it can boot using the install method, legacy vs efi partitions etc
@zenweasel let me know if you have any issues, I'll be happy to help anyone get linux on a machine anytime! Another convenience factor, is shrinking the windows partitions before hand using gparted off of a livecd most of the installers 'can' do this step, but having it done beforehand can simplify the whole process, and I've seen more than one install hang on the 'shrinking windows partitions' step

Ok, I am starting it now. If I run into anything I will ping you privately. Thanks for the offer of help.

microsoft over the years has done all sorts of 'dirty' tricks, including leaving the 'dirty' bit set on its partitions, with most modern stuff I have to go into choose what the power buttons do in the windows control panel and turn off fast boot

which is a misnomer, it should be called 'long shutdown' as it really reboots the computer and hibernates instead of shutting down
Josh Cox

oh and one last piece of advice before I head out to dinner, it's old and ugly but once you know how to use it, it is invaluable --> clonezilla it used to be g4l or 'ghostforlinux' until symantec sued them, then they got a much cooler name
Brent Hoover
@zenweasel
Dec 07 2017 03:00
lol, yeah I remember that
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 03:01
its another thing I always have on a thumb drive, and is the first thing I do before 'installs' of any sort, I've recovered from too many botched installs and total drive failures because of it to leave home without it

Hi) How i can to read information from this page?-
https://docs.reactioncommerce.com/reaction-docs/master/introduction.md

It seems like all about docker build customisation doesn't work at all... Do you have any docs about it on the github?

have a question regarding 'reaction pull'?

when running 'reaction' i get this message:
A newer version of Reaction exists on Github.

Current version: 1.5.10
Available version: 1.6.0

To update, run: reaction pull

But when doing 'reaction pull' i get no new version?
Next time i run 'reaction' I still get the message about a new version available?
Michael Jenny
@prinzdezibel
Dec 07 2017 13:45
@deetail that's strange. What happens if you just do git pull in your project dir? AFAIK, reaction pull is just a wrapper for that.
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 14:59
@deetail Are you on the master branch? git branch
Josh Cox
@joshuacox
Dec 07 2017 15:12
you can always do it manually as @prinzdezibel suggests, or if you do have your own branch for dev purposes git fetch --all then git merge v1.6.0is how to update in that case

Tell me, can I make sure that the newly registered user does not have the role of Guest, but the other? Did not find the answer in the documentation

I wont be able to use reaction on 32bit? What is Docker? @joshuacox

@prinzdezibel - 'git pull' says - Already up to date and I'm on the master branch

hey guys, is it possible to display only 2 two choosen products on a static landing page? or only a couple of products with a special tag?
Brent Hoover
@zenweasel
Dec 07 2017 21:01
@teralabs For sure, you could just create a custom page and filter for a specific tag

@childproof docker is endgame with reaction, in that to deploy you use docker build to make a docker image which you will upload to a host to serve your reaction commerce site. Furthermore, I'm almost certain the docker build command will fail on a 32-bit system without some serious hacking (i.e. hijacking the FROM statement to build from a 32-bit reaction base image [of which you'll need to have compiled/originated for 32-bit], I've got a blog post on a repo where I make just such images (albeit for rpi, but the process is the same) here TLDR - use a 64-bit linux vm to alleviate much pain

@childproof what is docker? is best answered by docker themselves

@zenweasel aside from installing linux to another partition, if in windows 10, have you tried Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux in an administrative powershell? I'm still astounded that after that and many reboots and updatapalooza, then I could visit this page and install ubuntu directly inside of windows (no VM, it is using the WSL). Now much like the above issues, with 32-bit linux, docker is not running here, and therefore, docker build will not run (unless you start a VM and alter the DOCKER_HOST env var, which is possible). But it is very cool, and I've successfully tested both meteor and reaction cli in development mode there (no docker build).

No, I didn’t really try that approach because I don’t think it’s something we would recommend. I was tempted to go down that road, but Windows developers want to Windows
Josh Cox

that's the thing, it is in windows
and starts up just like a windows app
