  • E21 / EFL 1.22.0 and Terminology 1.4.0 on VirtualBox 6.0.6 Metztli Reiser4 10GB Slice.

    Giving a preliminary spin to Terminology 1.4.0 and its support and/or lack thereof copy/paste Cyrillic, etc. characters.

    NOTE: As of Terminology version 1.4.99 (05-04-2019), it fully supports Cyrillic copy/pasting operations.

    Install locales (you need root or super user privilege):

    Shell

    apt-get -t stretch-backports update
    apt-get -t stretch-backports install locales

    Check which locales you have:

    Shell

    locale -a

    Install/reconfigure additional locales and/or set default locale:

    Shell

    dpkg-reconfigure locales


    On a side note most of my virtual machines are built either in Reiser4/Zstd transparent compression and/or regular reiser4 formatted rootfs.

    For a long time -- since VirtualBox 5.1.32 built under my hack of Debian Linux kernel 4.20 (GitHub) -- I struggled to understand why I was not able to reiser4 -format a 2TB slice in VirtualBox 6.x.y. any longer. Turns out that Debian packaging maintainers' default configuration setting for subsequent Linux kernels was modified:

    from
    # CONFIG_NUMA_BALANCING_DEFAULT_ENABLED is not set

    to
    CONFIG_NUMA_BALANCING_DEFAULT_ENABLED=y

    This setting prevents VirtualBox from fully supporting reiser4 --if at all-- because it corrupts even existing rootfs reiser4 -formatted virtual machines by sporadic, unpredictable hangs of the operating system.

    Accordingly, the kernels that I build all have that setting reverted as:

    CONFIG_NUMA_BALANCING_DEFAULT_ENABLED=n

    as it is a fact that I 'eat my own cooking' and the resulting reiser4 -patched kernels are used in turn to build VirtualBox releases for Metztli IT services.
