tor: undefined symbol: evutil_secure_rng_set_urandom_device

Well, my interpetation of the patch is it pertains to the configure.ac file that the tor app uses and the lines highlighted need to be changed or added. The red lines deletes, the green adds. As to where the configure.ac file is located appears to be the key question. Is there a /home/guest/.tor fol...

tor: undefined symbol: evutil_secure_rng_set_urandom_device

Hello postcd,

Did you update the USB databases before you did your tor search? My system is a x86_64 and USM shows a tor-0.2.9.9 and a tor-0.3.0.10 version.

A way to reset USM within a save file?

Interesting. Apparently the save.dat used with changes= is different than the save.dat used with changes=EXIT. Or maybe your changes exceeded the size of your save.dat at some point and the save.dat got corrupted. That's happened to me in the past. :( One thing I see is your /tmp folder is huge comp...

A way to reset USM within a save file?

LightningShock please post the output of this command: cat /proc/cmdline I don't think you have a save.dat file and if you do you're not using it. If I boot in Always Fresh mode, ie no save.dat file, I get this also. guest@porteus:~$ ls -l /mnt/live/memory/images/changes/ /bin/ls: cannot access '/m...

Error in Porteus-installer-for-Windows prevents making bootable USB

What skills are required?

Another option could be to make the Windows install a txt file with instructions to use Easy2Boot. :good:

printing-3.2 for porteus 3.2

Suggestion: When naming modules with dates put the year before the month and the day after the month.

Why? When one has multiple downloads of similar modules they sort in date sequence easier. :happy62:

Nostalgia for the Porteus Download wizard

The big distributions have some pop-up window the first time they boot. Why not having ours? Are you volunteering to add a pop-up window to all the current 3.2.2 ISOs? I think we need to determine what situation we are trying to address, current distros of Porteus or some distant future version. Th...

Nostalgia for the Porteus Download wizard

So, a user downloads an ISO at work/school/cafe/friend's house, goes home and attempts to install it and finds out he needs to use his dial-up connection/cell phone to download a browser to add to it. That doesn't sound very friendly to me. And when would new users see a Setup Wizard? It's not is 3....

In the interim we have 3.2.2 with no Download Wizard. Quicker to modify/make a new script for new/update users.

Are you able to modify the Porteus Wizard to do that francois ? :good: 2) Another way would be at the installation or booting phase of porteus: Do you want to install a browser? Other packages like a word processor? This approach would require the installer of the downloaded Porteus to be online whe...

Nostalgia for the Porteus Download wizard

Hi Hamza. Could a modified approach be created? One that supports a user selecting a prebuilt ISO and then selecting modules to add to it rather than buildiing a customized ISO?
