PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Thank you, @brokenman, I look forward to trying it. Is it going to appear in http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/Porteus-v3.2.2/kernel/ or elsewhere - I can't find it?

OK, I'm trying to convert that rpm -- it's not easy to chase the missing library one by one, installing and creating symbolic links to wrong versions of a library, and now I hit an especially troubling: MegaFuse: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.22' not found (required by MegaFuse) Fi...

USM bug reports

The safm.sh stumbled too at some stage. I decided to delete /var/usm and /etc/usm, reboot, and start anew. Then usm eventually worked well. But before it did, it presented me with a different BUG: As it resolves dependencies and downloads archives it doesn't seem to be checking for their integrity, ...

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Thanks fanthom and Spasibo Blaze. Your messages give hope that it's doable and might be fixed in Porteus-4.0 by @brokenman? I'll wait. (In the meantime I guess I should make a RAM disk because there is 8GB of RAM. Otherwise writing-reading off my USB drive all the time is too slow)

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Thank you, @ncmprhnsbl , for staying with me on this Kernel version: 4.9.0-porteus none of /dev/nvme* or any other promising /dev/* that I could see It's interesting that BIOS can see this device yet porteus can't. Perhaps there is more to it,it's a new machine from Dell. I'll try to find where to p...

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

... have tried to set in BIOS, SATA operation to Disabled -- didn't work, and the disk is not even listed in BIOS anymore. So I'm confused, is a PCIe NVM disk still a SATA disk?

Switched it back to AHCI, and added nvme_load="YES" nvd_load="YES" in porteus.cfg -- no effect

No, adding nvme_load=YES to APPEND had no apparent effect: it didn't discover any new disks or devices.

new generation SSD disks not yet supported?

Thanks, @ncmprhnsbl In my case SATA is already set to AHCI. There is only one SATA device per se, it's a DVD drive. The problem disk is not listed as SATA, but a PCIe. Maybe it does still use SATA bus, I wonder. Anyhow, I'm only seeing AHCI in Bios. I should add that Windows boots on the same machin...

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

A M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD host system disk is not seen by Porteus 3.2.2 64. At all. Not in GParted, not anywhere. Specifically, a new machine that we got is Dell Optiplex 7450 AIO, featuring a novel PM961 NVMe Samsung SSD disk. In Bios, under devices, it is listed not as a SATA disk but as a "M.2 PCIe SSD...

/etc/profile.d/*.sh executed twice

Yes indeed, /etc/profile.d/*.sh are executed both from within /etc/profile AND .bashrc. I've removed these lines from .bashrc. # Append any additional sh scripts found in /etc/profile.d/: for y in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do [ -x $y ] && . $y; done unset y That solved it then. Or am I now breaking some...
