Re: Porteus future

FWIW, I'm also glad Porteus will be around for awhile! The Debian-based liveCD/liveUSB distros I'm most familiar with are KNOPPIX Finnix Grml and way way back when, DamnSmallLinux Slack-based Porteus is just as good and serves my own purposes quite well to become somewhat more advanced in Linux (e.g...

Re: Missing dependencies from USM ?

I will add here what I added to the other thread....
That "other thread" is linked at viewtopic.php?f=75&t=4537, and one of the recent entries there tries to tie in most of the previous comments in this 'Newbie questions' thread.

FAA's Solution to Missing dependencies from USM?(2)

Porteus's high-level, dependency-based USM package manager is certainly easier than having to use the manual tools pkgtool/installpkg and txz2xzm. 8) At the same time, the replies concerning USM are a bit incomplete. brokenman wrote: Actually if you open the /etc/usm/usm.conf file and change: MODULE...

Re: Missing dependencies from USM ?

@goossbear: What about asking your more knowledgeable friend and providing us with the solution? I myself have more familiarity with the Debian-based distros' dependency-checking high-level apt tools (apt-get, aptitude, synaptic), and its non-dependency-checking low-level dpkg which all act upon .d...

Re: Porteus n00B with problem of boot= cheatcode

so you're using a CD iso to boot an iso on a usb/hd? from the tutorial your cheatcode should look more like this: KERNEL /dev/sdb1/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz APPEND initrd=/dev/sdb1/porteus/boot/initrd.xz from=/dev/sdb1/Porteus-XFCE-v3.1-i486.iso may only need from=/dev/sdb1/Porteus-XFCE-v3.1-i486.iso y...
