Porteus came and (almost) kicked Windows

Exactly! Porteus has this testing-proof thing that is very suitable for learners. I'm messing system files very often, but just need to reboot and voilà :)

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

@wread, can you be more specific regarding the performance? Like, your machine specs, what exactly is slow and how slow, etc.

Missing dependency

ldd shows all the dependencies, including the missing ones (you'll see a 'file not found' in these cases).

Wine on Porteus

@Ed_P, yours come with Gecko/Mono and the txz doesn't (although during the first run it offers an option to download both) :)

Wine on Porteus

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

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:

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.

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...
