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.

Nostalgia for the Porteus Download wizard

The big distributions have some pop-up window the first time they boot. Why not having ours? If you want a browser click here...
... If you have enough of these instructions click here. This could be on the iso side. The only disadvantage would be for the cd users. :)
