virtualbox: do you have a working installation under porteus?

Small problem here:
At bootup there is a long halt before getting into the X environment. The message is:
... entering level 4 ...
... vbox additions ...

and this even though vbox and vbox-guest are in my optional folder.

Any interpretation of this behavior would be appreciated.

Thanks. :)

Some useful GPL or free applications for Android phones

In search of some useful GPL or free applications without publicity for android phone, this is your thread. From what I know there are a few. Here is my demand.

Do you know an app that permits sms thru wifi to lower the cost of such a use of the phone?

Thanks.

The big distributions have some pop-up window the first time they boot. Why not having ours? If you want a browser click here...

brokenman might think this would be a good idea and provide it for 4.1 :)

Or simply once porteus is installed some kind of update-packages or update-porteus with questions.

1) Sure, a simplified and basic version would offer the basic isos with DE and then modules à la carte: browsers, word processors, bundles. Then people would install the iso and be instructed to locate modules in the modules directory. 2) Another way would be at the installation or booting phase of ...
