#12 Announcements, Package & Security Advisories » Manage android-sdk through SDK Manager » 2016-05-16 07:53:02

Replies: 0

If you want to manage /opt/android-sdk by yourself or via SDK Manager, you can install the android-sdk dummy packages which only provide the needed dependencies.

sudo pacman -S android-sdk-dummy android-sdk-platform-tools-dummy android-sdk-build-tools-dummy

It will ask you to replace android-sdk, android-sdk-platform-tools and android-sdk-build-tools. Simply answer with "Y".
After that you can install android-sdk from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html to /opt/android-sdk and run the SDK Manager.

Note: You'll loose the ability to update android-sdk via pacman and bbqlinux repos. You always have to do it via SDK Manager.

If you want to switch back to the bbqlinux packages simply run:

sudo pacman -S android-sdk android-sdk-platform-tools android-sdk-build-tools

If BBQLinux welcomes you with a black screen after you've booted the live media you might try booting without KMS enabled.
Since 2015-12-20 there's a boot option called "Boot BBQLinux (KMS disabled)" available which adds "nomodeset" to kernel cmdline.

then run:

Boot the BBQLinux live media.

On your USB-Stick, create two partitons using gparted for example.
One for boot, another one for /.

Open terminal and become root user:


Password is bbqlinux

Mount the BBQLinux image and copy the contents over to your new / partiton (replace sdXn with / partiton. Example: sdb2):

mkdir -p /mnt/{img,usb}
mount -o loop /run/archiso/sfs/airootfs/airootfs.img /mnt/img
mount /dev/sdXn /mnt/usb
cp -a /mnt/img/* /mnt/usb
umount /mnt/img

Chroot into your new BBQLinux system on USB-Stick:

arch-chroot /mnt/usb

Install grub bootloader (replace sdXn with boot partiton. Example: sdb1):

grub-install --target=i386-pc --force /dev/sdXn

Disable unneeded systemd services:

systemctl disable etc-pacman.d-gnupg.mount
systemctl disable pacman-init
systemctl disable prepare_livesystem

Remove livesystem prep-service:

rm -f /usr/bin/prepare_livesystem

Initialize pacman:

rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
pacman-key --init
pacman-key --populate archlinux
pacman-key --populate bbqlinux
pacman-key --refresh-keys

Remove unneeded packages:

pacman -Rs bbqlinux-livemedia calamares-bbqlinux calamares

Add a new user (replace username with your desired username):

useradd -m -g users username

Add your new user to some default groups:

usermod -aG audio, games, lp, lpadmin, network, autologin, optical, power, scanner, shutdown, storage, sudo, video username

Set a password for your new user:

passwd username

Remove bbqlinux user:

userdel -r bbqlinux

Set a new password for the root user:

passwd root

Edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and comment:


Edit /etc/sudoers and remove:

# installer group
 %installer ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/calamar

Reboot and boot from USB-Stick.

#23 Pacman & Package Upgrade Issues » [FIX] High android build times » 2015-08-02 11:13:13

Replies: 0

Android takes a long time to build on arch based systems.
It seems to be an issue with the latest make (> 3.82) package.

Simply downgrade make to 3.81 and build times will go down.

wget http://packages.bbqlinux.org/bbqlinux/os/x86_64/make-3.81-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
wget http://packages.bbqlinux.org/bbqlinux/os/x86_64/make-3.81-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig
sudo pacman -U make-3.81-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

After that, edit your /etc/pacman.conf and add make to IgnorePkg to prevent pacman from updating it again:


That's all!

#24 Re: System Administration » LightDM black screen » 2015-07-31 18:09:53

did you use lightdm-gtk-greeter on plain arch, too?

#25 Re: Newbie Corner » Install package Grub-Customizer and PacmanXG. » 2015-01-21 20:18:11

bbqlinux is plain arch + some additional packages.
if it's not working then there's a problem with the package or a problem on your side.

yaourt -S pacmanxg4-bin
yaourt -S grub-customizer

If this doesn't work, download the tarball from aur, extract it and run "makepkg" inside of the extracted folder.
And don't forget to post LOGS. Without logs, nobody is able to help you.
