Recently I tried one of Live CDs and realized that the
commands are immediately executes and modifying system state.
I think it is unexpected and sort of malware behavior, please review and fix.
I didn’t get details of package version and ISO image. If you want that additional pointers, let me know, I will collect that info and post it.
manjaro-live tool does not have any help instructions. And it’s not meant for users to run manually.
I tried to figure out that is it by
but is was empty
and than tried to see manual via
--help but got it’s execution.
Is it a user expected behavior as should be: to try to learn and to get an execution with system state modifications?
As I said, it’s not meant for a user to manually run.
It’s run by the system when it boots (I believe).
Again, I report the issue while tried to figure out what is this: instead of expected manual output (or it absence) got an execution with modifications.
- If it is not right learning method, than could I ask another comfortable and fast method?
- What about a such fastest method during live cd session, where all stuff are by default?
If it is not right method to learn what command is and it’s settings, than all
--help are wrong also.
If that learn method is right, than the
manjaro-live have the pointed issue.
Enter your choice:
Not every executable in the system has a
man page or a built-in help option.
man pages are for tools that can be executed via the command line without needing a GUI, and help options are at the discretion of the developer of each executable ─ it is up to them whether or not the executable will support it.
agree, but before that stuff I never saw execution with modifications caused by
Oh, man. All developers has guide lines, styles how to design good apps. The
--help is one of them.
It is about the choice:
--help is wrong learning method and most of apps with that functionality contains that junk
manjaro-live has the issue
--help option did not cause any “modifications” ─ whatever you mean by that. It is simply not a supported command line option on the
manjaro-live executable, because said executable is ─ as @Strit said ─ intended to be run when the live USB/CD/DVD boots; it is not intended to be invoked manually.
here is that with
If you need more details about which ISO it was and the package version, I can collect that info, just let me know.
I thought that both @Strit and I had been clear; the executable
manjaro-live does not have a help option, because it is not intended to be run by a user.
In other words, what you are complaining about is completely irrelevant and stems from your lack of understanding the system.
This thread is going nowhere, so I’m closing it.
