samba ->>> get it out of 002-xorg

2brokeman & future developers of porteus, Let think how to get out samba from 002-xorg as it quite vunerable - to make it as optional external module. The same as python, perl, etc - as if you need to use some network services it have to be binded to it. It is easy to update and set level of securit...

Improve Porteus security

Local password for porteus means nothing without encryption - so you may even use it empty and crypt only your data - in container - or - other ways.
Porteus isn't server and never planned to - so as desktop - so security have to be manages for desktop appliance - that is big differ.

Да всё у вас получится. Статья ваша хорошая, да несколько не про то - автор там собирает модули для совсем старого ядра - есть такая ветка сборки backport. А вот на что в ней стоит обратить внимание Распаковываем и пишем в /lib/firmware, удивляясь как это файл с одинаковым именем может отличаться ро...

Помогите с драйвером Alfa Network AWUS036NH

Отладочную инормацию вы не дали, но наверное в том дистре родная фирмварь, потому и переходит.

А тут нет. Ну так выцепите тот же фирмварь для вашей карточки, соберите модуль под ядро потреуса - и будет на портеусе.

FIDOSlax 3.1.4-stable, 3.2.3-devel and 1.1.4-retro planning

Have some nice ideas which may be implemented, it may be quite useful for FIDOSlax and Porteus users. Need to think how best it could be manage and which have a sense.
Only for FS 3.2.3-devel, other versions only just modules updates.
And of course - depends on time and other circumstances.

[SOLVED] Как отключить изменение файла сохранения.

Не за что. Вы аккуратнее с шифрованием - это не панацея. Полезна, если вы потеряете флешку. В остальном же, - вместо настоящей защиты данных - пользователю даёт иллюзию безопасности.
