Firefox ESR

Indeed! Thank you, the module works well except it shows no icons in LXDE and LXQt, but when I type `firefox` it starts and shows the correct, ESR version. I hope @brokenman will consider including it as an official Firefox module.

Firefox ESR

Oh, thanks so much. Would it make it's way to x86_64/Porteus-v3.2.2/modules/ folder (perhaps replacing the multitude of other Firefox versions there)?

Firefox ESR

Building a Firefox xzm myself using update-firefox didn't quite work for some reason. So I've come to this forum for help, "xzm module requests". But we can turn it into instructing me how to build it myself if you prefer.

update-firefox proxy authorization

3.2.2 62 XFCE I have proxy environment variables set up in bash, with authorization, but update-firefox picks up only the name of the proxy server. Ok, then I supply the name and a password: root@porteus:~# update-firefox -pauth=name:passw Checking internet ... Downloading: update-firefox-live DONE ...

changing HOSTNAME results in "No protocol specified" at boot

In Porteus 3.2.2 64 XFCE, when I use this script https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=6015 or manually edit the /etc/HOSTNAME file, and reboot, I receive a long list of "No protocol specified" messages at boot time, and it won't boot Xorg for a long while then. It eventually starts the GUI...

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

Solution: 1. Boot as usual with your stock Porteus, no need to change the kernel or e1000e. 2. The network will be trying and complaining that it can't connect 3. While it's still trying, simply execute the script resetting the PCI: #!/bin/bash #Get the PCI-Address of network card (Caution: This wo...

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

Good news: it works! The combination of the new kernel/e1000e, resetting eth0, dhcp with resetting PCI inbetween (I suspect this is the key) gave me an IP address and a DHCP connection. I'm now going to try to narrow this result down to the necessary ingredient(s) only and will post the final, minim...

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

Tomorrow I'm going to try your v4.9.10.tar.xz then. Also, I'm going to run the script at the end of this page https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=191981 just before bringing the eth0 up again.

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

OK, thanks to @neko, I've now tested his new v4.10-rc8+e1000e-3.3.5.3 kernel, (booted always fresh, confirmed that the new kernel and e1000e-3.3.5.3 were in fact loaded, tried the same commands to restart-re-enforce the eth0 and dhcp) but unfortunately DHCP doesn't connect anyway -- no difference in...

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

@neko
Could you upload somewhere either the UP.Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso or, if it's too big, only the vmlinuz & 000-kernel.xzm? I'm back in the office and can now try it.
Thanks

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

Thanks @neko, for building the e1000e-3.3.5.3. I've downloaded a fresh copy of the iso I use, Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso and tried to patch it with your Porteus Kernel Builder. But I can't select the kernel version in the GUI and then it doesn't run, because it complains that the kernel version ...

Re: no connection with Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM

With the e1000e replaced to 3.3.5.3-NAPI, which works on the l219 machine fine, on the problem l217 I first find out which ethX device the eth0 got renamed to, if any: root@porteus:~# ifconfig eth0 down eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device root@porteus:~# dmesg | grep -e eth -e ...
