ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

In the Porteus menu Search box type font then click on the Fonts item found. In the Fonts window try clicking on the - sign for Text Scaling Factor. 0.90 or 0.80 might help you see the whole APorteus ISO Builder window.

A laptop with a graphic card to compute vectors

Hey francois . My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron 13, my prior machine was an Acer Aspire One 722 and the one before that was an Acer Aspire One.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

But the problem wread occurs when booting not after I have booted. After removing the networkmanager I would have to rebuild the ISO to test a reboot. And the problem seems to be limited to only 1 of the 4 ISOs I have tested. 3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem. (Post by Ed_P #61082)
