Wine on Porteus

Yes, Wine works nice with Porteus. Just need to download this txa package and convert it to xzm (right click):

https://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/f ... z/download

If you want to run x86 Windows applications, you'll also need lib32compat.

Shared Folders for Porteus running on VMWare

You can try this: https://serverfault.com/questions/67497 ... der/674978

If it doesn't work, you can also try to use ssh. If you don't know how, I can give you the step by step. :good:

Porteus Kernel Builder

@neko, I haven't been helping you with the kernel updates lately (though working at Porteus 4 release), but I would like to say that I still admire your effort very much! Keep going, man! :)

Flash Video

I've just tested in Windows 10 + Opera last version and it doesn't work. Probably a geolocation issue for me, but maybe a Flash issue for tdrsam.

Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

In the case of the kiosk version I believe every time the session is ended the memory is restored and the profile directory is cleaned so it would take a looong session to eat up your ram. The problem is not Porteus itself, but other apps, especially browsers. If the system runs out of memory, it w...

Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

When runnning Porteus Desktop (not sure about Kiosk, but should be the same), the major bottleneck is the amount of RAM memory, since the whole system runs in RAM and there's no swap file by default -- in other words: system will freeze if there's no RAM available. Although Porteus itself doesn't ta...

It seems that there's something else with this link, because neither Opera 48 nor Firefox 57 can't load the video even with the last Pepper/Flash 27.

New Slax is Comming !

I've just tried it and here are my impressions. Highlights: 1- first time I see a Debian based distro that is really small: 208 MB; 2- boots pretty quick: 14 seconds; 3- takes just 190 MB of RAM after a fresh boot; 4- apt-get can be bloatware, but we have to admit: it simply works; Things that I did...

I believe it doesn't matter if Openboard was compiled against Qt 5.7.1 or 5.9.2, since they're compatible. This xcb error is indeed infernal. Could you try answers 1 and 2 here ? In the meanwhile, you can try LXQt DE , since it already comes with Qt and won't show this xcb error, I guess. :good: Lat...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

@francois, you'll have to work harder to upset me, hahaha! What I like about Xfce of the Calculate distro is that everything seems harmonic and professional, especially the icon theme. :good: Oh, and I hate that Whisker menu of our Xfce, so every Xfce that comes without it has my vote. BTW, brokenma...
