As promised, a lot of progress happened this week! Having the Flidas build jails up and running allowed to spin up enough packages to make most of the desktop components available to install, and a MATE based desktop is in testing to potentially become the next default interface. Along with that, the package helpers for openssh, Midori and several desktop dependencies (gsettings-desktop-schemas, gnome-icon-theme, lightdm-gtk-greeter and unity-greeter) were updated and built.

Trisquel 7 also received some upgrades, including Abrowser 48 and a workaround for security issue CVE-2016-5696. In other news, GNU IceCat also is getting some love, and a -still a bit rough- build of v45 ESR is now being tested and polished.

All those changes are available at https://devel.trisquel.info/groups/trisquel and http://jenkins.trisquel.info/icecat/

How would I go about installing the parts that are ready?

Here is a rough example of how I did it. Hope you can use it in this form.

First get root shell using "sudo su". After that you can run the following commands.

FLIDAS=/mnt/flidas

debootstrap flidas $FLIDAS http://es.archive.trisquel.info/trisquel/
curl http://jenkins.trisquel.info/repos/trisquel/key.asc > $FLIDAS/root/key.asc
cat <<EOF > $FLIDAS/etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://es.archive.trisquel.info/trisquel flidas main
deb http://es.archive.trisquel.info/trisquel flidas-updates main
deb http://es.archive.trisquel.info/trisquel flidas-security main

deb http://jenkins.trisquel.info/repos/trisquel/flidas flidas main
#deb http://jenkins.trisquel.info/repos/trisquel/flidas flidas-updates main
deb http://jenkins.trisquel.info/repos/trisquel/flidas flidas-security main
EOF

After doing this you will have flidas debootstrapped, with jenkins repo key in root dir and sources list set up.

Then you can mount some stuff for flidas to have and chroot to the system.

mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/flidas/dev/
mount -t devpts none /mnt/flidas/dev/pts/
mount -t proc none /mnt/flidas/proc/
chroot /mnt/flidas/

You can now add the key.

cat /root/key.asc | apt-key add -

After updating using "apt-get update" you can install packages.
When you want to exit, just execute "exit". After that you can un-mount the stuff you mounted previously.

umount /mnt/flidas/dev/pts
umount /mnt/flidas/dev
umount /mnt/flidas/proc

To use the system later you don't need to repeat everything, just the mount and chroot part.

Thank you for another great update, Rubén! As promised I have donated $50 to the Trisquel project for this update. Who else will join me?

Even if you can't do $50 please consider setting some amount that you can afford and join in. Long live Trisquel!

I tried all the servers (mirrors and the main server) with no updates.
