Issue #2
same installation setup as before except I am now using a DOS partition scheme instead of GPT.

Now I am receiving a segfault from extlinux.com. I tried https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... com#p27174 but still received a segfault. So as per the post I switched from using the Porteus boot CD and instead used the latest Arch Linux install CD which worked like a charm. The Porteus Linux installer is reporting success. Time to reboot. :Yahoo!:

^ This approach works: https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 638#p33604 just disregard the first two points as they are not an option at this point.

Thanks Ed_P for the tip. Unfortunately their was no change to either of my issues. I've also discovered that the newly created USB key won't boot on my older home machine or a newer laptop. All I see is the first line that starts with SYSLINUX 4.06 & then it just sits there. I will ask for help on the forums & report back here if it is a bug.

EDIT
Here is my newly created post https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=6922

My Daughter recently got an Acer UEFI Laptop with seventh generation Processor and DDR4 memory,preloaded with Windows 10. Seeing discussions here,I fancied myself, to try Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2 64 bit, in that machine with a Pen drive.

But,BIOS screen shows 'secure boot' enabled and locked.No way to navigate.

But there may be a provision to add a SSD and test, which I wouldn't venture.

1_In my Desktop, V3.2.2 64 bit runs well, but I felt 32 bit was faster.

During boot on entering level 4, a lot of information in very high resolution(small letters) is dumped by X11 before, showing the desktop.

Same way ,I noticed during shut down, the memory is not cleaned and shows lots of error messages(mostly about the last application) before unmounting union and all, to power off.

i remember to have read about rc.d rc.6, modification of script,regarding sync,unmount.

2)I am a fan of 'True Vector Internet monitor' from Zone alarm(2001) and still have it in XP. Net load plugin in XFCE is not able to initialize the interface error..The device name is 'eth0' and interface name is 'wired connection 1'. Any solution for this plugin to recognize this interface. I read that the naming is done by the Kernel.

3) Slony's module for Florence ,though gets installed and opens up, typing is not transferred to the screen,, dead I would say, still click sound heard in speakers. This is in XFCE. Donald said it works in KDE

@ raja
regarding florence
compile a new one
1.fetch the source and slackbuild from slackbuilds.org
2.open the florence.SlackBuild in mousepad and change

Code: Select all

./configure \
  --prefix=/usr  \
to

Code: Select all

./configure \
  --prefix=/usr --without-at-spi \
will work then in/with xfce;..tested in 3.2.2 XFCE 32 + mousepad.. 8)

Could be that UEFI or something else is missing.

I just rebooted, even with the altered menu.lst I still get the same kernel trace/kernel panic:

why yes, I disabled/deleted all system boot fonts I don't need/don't want in sda1/Boot of Witless7 OS but en-US (would have preferred en-GB / en-UK but there is no such folder) and de-DE. Don't judge me. xD

As you can see: no such folders as isolinux (or syslinux) on sda1.

But on sda2, they are </yoda> :

Here again the current menu.lst, and the working 3.1 as well:

boot

initrd (hd0,0)/Boot/initrd.xz_Porteus_3.2.2_x86_64
boot
Hopefully one of you knows what's amiss. Should I copy the UEFI folder to sda1?
Or do you need to "install" UEFI?
Cheers!

"login=guest" takes me to the login screen -- is there any way to simply log users in as guest from the Porteus boot menu without requiring them to enter the credentials manually?

UPDATE: after a couple of manual logins, "login=guest" is working correctly, without requiring manual signin.

P.S. brokenman, please see https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 151#p55151 and/or https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=6928 -- can this be fixed?

I've never used the login= cheatcode and I've always booted to the guest account without a prompt.

Not a bug.

I edited my post; now the "login=guest" cheatcode takes me "to the guest account without a prompt" -- not "what the login= cheatcode is designed to do", according to you. By your reasoning, this behavior should be a bug; to mine, it is simply inconsistent behavior across boots that seems to have resolved itself into that I desired.

the first line of porteus boot menu allow you to boot in init4 and always with guest account,the guest account is hardcoded into the system so you can't remove but you can use the root account if you want with a cheatcode or something like that,if you want to use a multiple system into a key syslinux maybe isn't the best bootloader to do this task, grub is better,but i do not know grub2.

Read the FAQ on what the login= cheatcode does. It is not designed for the default user id.
No need; I just pointed out to you that your claim that use of "login=guest" is supposed to take users to the manual login screen is belied by the behavior of the OS, which (now) automatically signs me into the guest account when using "login=guest" and into the root account when I use "login=root".
