ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

@neko I have been trying your patches to systemd logout and, althought some systemd script is throwing errors, at the end your scripts got working and the drives are properly unmounted. Also, I suggest you to make this change inside your initrd.xz scripts as pointed by abelM here --> http://forum.p...

Porteus on a Memory Card

EDIT: Wonderful, wread . It will be very useful for me. I have a laptop with 1/2 USB 3.0 ports not working, and running Porteus from a pendrive, is occupying the only available fast port. (The other one I use for the mouse). Should be posible to have it all of it in a sdcard properly partitioned li...

cleanup script copy update

Hi abelM , your initrd.xz is located inside your /boot/syslinux folder in your Porteus media. You can uncompress and compress yourself from the terminal like @brokenman explains here --> https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?p=53718#p53718 Also, you can have a look at this article --> http://www.p...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

I tested both the full distro and the DE for Porteus (thanks to neko ), and I think it's really well done! Both in terms of aesthetics and usability -- reminds me of MacOS. However, it's very resource hungry, so it's not a DE I would use on my daily basis. I'm running neko 's APorteus Budgie with 6...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

@Raja One of the safer things I think I do whenever I use a live-USB portable distro, is to have Conky monitoring disk I/O, to be sure when a write operation has ended. Since then, the problems have decreased. The other rule of gold, is to always have backups. Today is a fairly cheap and fast soluti...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

Has anyone used the deepin desktop? What do you think about it? Is it heavy or rather lean compared to the other desktop we are accustomed here in the porteus distribution? What about papyros? Or do you have some preferences for without desktop, window manager only? Other desktops on porteus: fvwm ...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

1. @M. Eerie I am sorry for my careless answer. (1) "doublecmd" I tested "doublecmd" under APorteus that includes 004-libreoffice.xzm, 004-oblogout.xzm, and 004-vlc.xzm, which contain /usr/lib/python2.7. Therefor the test result was OK. The module that was merged with doublecmd-gtk2-0.7.8-x86_64-1 ...

Running script upon module activation SYSTEMD

I added an element some time ago that executes scripts on activation. Just place your script in /etc/activate inside the module. It will automatically receive the start argument in case it is a service. # Run any scripts required on activation of a module for SCRIPT in $MODULE; do MYMOD=${MODULE##*...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

Thank you for your great contribution, neko I'm trying to build imagemagick and doublecmd modules with no luck. I think imagemagick is missing some parts, and doublecmd fails are python related. Python output at command line is not working. Will try to reproduce your build and see what happens. :beer:
