Testing nemesis update (Migration to Artix)

I was unable to install xfce DE with command: try xfce4 ;) generally if you get a 'not found' message use -Ss to search, which will usually provide the correct pkg(or pkg group) name 2) Each different package installation will propose the installation of the database. It does not persist though pma...

Pale Moon (Browser) 27.4.2 (2017-08-22)

just checked this, and it is correct ie. ddgo search uses https://duckduckgo.com/?t=porteus&q=
the update script just edits the existing duckduckgo-palemoon.xml rather than creating a extra duckduckgo-porteus.xml ..

Starting a DM with openrc

fairly safe to say this approach will not work with qingy, since it replaces agetty s, and displaymanager-openrc is all about X displaymanagers... with openrc init, i believe it would require the writing of a bunch of quingy scripts(openrc services) to replace the agetty services in the default runl...

Starting a DM with openrc

Since the inclusion of Artix repos to replace manjaro core repo (extra and communty are still used), openrc is now used for the init as well as service manager. This means that /etc/mtab is no longer used, which breaks our system for autostarting the Desktop Manager(DM) (and so the Desktop). So far,...

How to update Firefox

3.1 is getting pretty long in the tooth, getting the latest firefox to work with it is a tough one.. you might have better luck with palemoon, at least it doesn't need gtk3 ... no guarantees though More generally, how do I find modules for Porteus? 1.

Upgrade default packages in Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2 to latest

How tedious would it be to have old packages remove totally, and packing back 000, 001, 002, 003 with latest packages? a bit tedious.. (and not guaranteed to work) the thing with slackware is it's a fixed release(14.2), so apart from a few security patches, there aren't many package upgrades during...
