Invitation to create Savefile during boot or simplify "Save changes" process

Strongly against ntfs for removeable drives. Extra journaling can cause unsafe removal problems. FAT & exFAT better options If for some reason user wishes to make save.dat on removable drive, is strongly advised to create linux partition for file as neko has done here: RTL8723bs @alexhawk2016 If yo...

Recommend Printer for PDF [+PS]

It seems printers with pdf conversion firmware are very few in number, the current solution being to provide software to convert to printer language in device holding pdf file. Faced with that reality, I'll be going for the Canon pixma mg3650, as seems to be quite compact, and with Linux drivers bei...

low ressource computer: your setup to maximize your box

^ So, it looks like apart from cpu (2cores, add 50%) ~2.5 GHz, the resources seem to be in every way superior to mine. :) guest@porteus:~$ sudo /usr/sbin/dmidecode -t 6 # dmidecode 3.0 Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs.

low ressource computer: your setup to maximize your box

All things being relative, the only possible low I'm able to see in the spec (1st post did not link to spec) is the CPU. My cpu: guest@porteus:~$ sudo /usr/sbin/dmidecode -t 4 # dmidecode 3.0 Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs. SMBIOS 2.5 present. Handle 0x0004, DMI type 4, 40 bytes Processor Informatio...

low ressource computer: your setup to maximize your box

@francois

Things move so quickly in this world of computers, and so that we are on the same page it would be interesting to know what you consider a low resource computer. What is your definition of a low resource computer?

Upgrade Porteus flash drive from 3.1 to 3.2?

One way of doing this is to find the 3.2.2 iso you are interested in, and download it. Then try this: Simple USB Flash Installer.

Porteus Save Changes vs Porteus Save Session

Welcome to Porteus. I myself save neither session nor changes, but surely someone like Ed_P very much dependent on this option would be more qualified to comment here.

Maybe palemoon should be provided stock.
Shouldn't be a problem, as there is now a slackware PM package. Only fiddling required would be with regard to setting up duckduckgo parameter. :)
