This is handy if you are connecting to the Organelle using WiFi. Instead of having to connect using ip (192.168.blahblah), you can follow these steps so the Organelle shows up on the network as organelle.localhost.
I was able to do this already with the way I setup wifi, using netctl (it doesn’t use avahi-daemon)
what I don’t get is the dns back to the host.
i.e i can ping organelle from the mac using ‘organelle’ , but I cant ping my mac (except via ip) from the organelle
do you get dns in both directions? which would be useful.
also with the OS update, you need to decide if there is wifi enabled or not?
the issue is pacman will only work with a network, if you want to do via files, we will have to include the package in the zip file (and presumably in the ‘dependancy order’ if dependancies are required)
… this is going to be a bit difficult to do, without using a clean image of organelle to test against.
(since, its possible ive already installed/upgraded dependent libraries)
I think avahi-daemon gives you both directions, but I didn’t try yet. The other thing it handles is collisions, so if you have 2 Organelles on same network, they will become organelle.local and organelle-2.local automatically. Does netctl method handle this kind of situation?
Yeah, we’ll have to decide about package updates on Organelle in OS update. I think it is better to assume no network, so packages will have to be included with the files. This would be a pain if there were many dependancies involved, but most simple things I’ve been working on lately don’t really have many dependancies.
Clean factory Organelle images are always available here to test with:
