Re: Show your love for porteus!

These fiddling little details most of you can ignore at the moment, but I for one had been struggling with SCO Unix, PC/MS-DOS, Xenix etc. since 1982 until I found Slackware 1.0 released in 1993.

Linux kernel 4.0 stable with overlayfs is out

The Linux kernel 4.0 stable with overlayfs is out, is there anyone plan to try/use vanilla/un-patched kernel with overlayfs for Porteus Live?

Re: Torchat

Though a little bit off-topic, but I find https://tox.im/ is promising. I use uTox; much better compared with any, although still at alpha stage.

Re: Chromium: the answer to life, the universe and everythin

IMHO, both the google-chrome and chromium have reached a state, where I may categorize them as bloatware; I hate the page rendering by webkit and the browsers are not faster than Firefox anymore :-(

Re: Security Module Request

I think, you can easily build Porteus modules or bundle of all the said packages yourself using usm ; try searching and downloading Slackware packages and covert them to modules.

I'm sharing these scripts in a hope that these will make your life easier for building, (re-)packaging and, or creating Porteus modules for some of the plugins we usually need for popular web browsers.

I use the Porteus + MATE as a mainstream desktop; here follows a list of default modules (though, some of these are home-brew) loaded into RAM: [guest@porteus:~]$ ls -1 /mnt/live/memory/images/ 000-kernel.xzm/ 001-core.xzm/ 002-xorg.xzm/ 003-mate.xzm/ 004-firefox.xzm/ 004-flash-plugin.xzm/ 004-hango...
