4 months straight on RAMboot

guest@porteus:~$ uptime -p up 15 weeks, 1 day, 21 hours, 57 minutes And this is supposed to be my disposable distro, I'm using it almost as my DD!

Hardware specific cheatcode/modules

Is it possible to trigger specific cheatcodes or load specific modules based on the detected hardware? I use Porteus as a Live OS on multiple systems and some of the blacklists in my modprobe config are contradictory between the various systems. Also certain optimizations for HiDPI displays will loo...

Re: Prevent Power Button from Shutting Down System
