Boinc may be a challenge

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su

USM bug reports

I don't have sufficient expertise to disagree with your approach port, but deleting the *.hic file in /usr/share/usm/ and using the command Bogomips said works only takes a minute to do and try. And eliminates one possible cause of your problem. :happy62:

Because things are not designed to stick on reboot I guess that is the first thing to learn then boot from ssd
:%) If you install Porteus to the ssd things will stick. If you run Porteus as an ISO on the ssd the cheatcode changes= supports saving things into a porteussave.dat file.

These two commands look the same to you? :no:

I guess the overall question is: How tough will it be for this old guy to get his head around Porteus
Well, it depends on how willing are you to try. :D Check out this link: Newbie questions and create a new thread or two for your questions. :good:

How many did you include in your module?
Only keepassx-0.4.4-x86_64-1gv.txz and qt-4.8.7-x86_64-6.txz
The qt-4.8.7-x86_64-6.txz module works with the keepassx-2.0.3-x86_64-1alien.tgz module also. :fine:

keepassx error

Thank you for this donald . Hi Ed Blaze's solution is the easiest - imo If you mean downloading the module he linked to I agree. I may add some tips how to troubleshoot those kind of problems. Boot stock porteus and install e.g. keepassx, if it doesn't start open a terminal and try to start the prog...

seems that USM did know the files are already there - but keepassx can not find them. :wink: usr/lib64/ qt/lib/libQtXml.so.4 I don't think so.

keepassx error

Thank you :worship: Blaze . :beer: So we are kinda back to why didn't USM attach that required package when building the keepassx module. :hmmm: Also with the qt module you mentioned USM shows many additional packages required. How many did you include in your module? https://s12.postimg.org/dnz8ff2...
