Firefox ESR

hmmmm 64 + 32 = 96 / 2 = 48 Yup, now I see how the winecfg file is half the size of Alien's. :D

Wine on Porteus

I don't disagree that Gecko/Mono adds to the size of my wine module but Alien's wine package, without Gecko/Mono, is still 5 times the size of your module. root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -i wine The following items were found.

Try the sesm.sh script. It's faster and covers all the mirrors.

I made a kernel update following fanthom's instructions (many thanks!):
A link to those instructions might be useful to others looking to do the same thing. ;)

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Well obviously your rc.4 file change isn't the problem. :good: I'll uncomment the line. I was changing the font not the theme. :oops: BTW brokenman found this approach works. Apparently your Cinnamon is too fast. Also the latest cinnamon doesn't boot for me unless I delay the startup. I learned that...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Could you comment out the line /sbin/setcap cap_ipc_lock=+ep /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon in /etc/rc.d/rc.4, include it in your changes and boot to graphics with your changes (which also has your network configs)? Did as you asked, booting to graphics, with my changes, hung same as before. #!/bin/...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Unbelievable!! :crazy: Booting without my changes modules from 3.2.2 but rather with the save.dat file created with 4.0 and with a wi-fi network connection saved the system booted using the text mode cheatcode. :crazy: BTW in each test when the DE appeared I was connected to my wi-fi network. :shock:

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

This is getting weird. Rebooted using the 3 cheatcode and my 3.2.2 changes that includes the network folders, logged in as guest and started startx!! ( yes, you were right ) And here I am again posting. :shock: I am happy, :happy62: and I suspect brokenman is also, but I don't understand how booting...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

I did as you asked jssouza or at least I thought I did. I used the cheatcode 3 and booted with my 3.2.2 changes, minus the network files. I logged in as root and ran slim and it is what I am running as I write this. I suspect you want me to boot with the 3.2.2 network changes and that I didn't do. I...
