Porteus attempts to unmount partition

I installed latest stable version (1.1) and it has a beautiful desktop and works very smoothly. However, I had some problems with partition mounting. I used 'noauto' cheatcode on kernel line to prevent automatic mounting of all partitions. Then I selected a partition (say abcd) which mounted very we...

Some basic questions please

Which version should I use now (I need a stable distro) 2. Can I start porteus in a user mode (not root) and how to do it if it is not defau...

Re: mouse buttons not working on netbook

On my netbook (HPmini):
bare, imps and exps work all right;
raw and base report "invalid argument".
Mousepad scrolling with 2 finger does not work with any of these (it works in win7). Edge scrolling (right side or bottom) does not work either (it also does'nt work with win7).

Re: Any way to avoid initial password dialog box

@hamza: "toroot" cheatcode takes you to the password dialog box with root already mentioned in user name. Is it possible for system to boot fully straight to desktop without asking for any password (like it was in slax) ?

@lo-n-behold: please elaborate on your "yes".

Thanks. I will try these steps.

Ksnapshot works all right after removing modules. I had earlier transferred all modules from slax and converted them in one go to xzm by "lzm2xzm ." ; I will have to add modules few at a time probably.

Re: txt file double-click --> Session chooser Kate

I strongly agree with you that users need an area to post their problems with porteus. Otherwise they will keep posting on other, more technical, parts of forum.
