Porteus 3.2.1

Postby RichardAu » 18 Dec 2016, 22:56

When are we going to see the 3.2.1 in the build wizard?
Currently it is still building for version 3.1

Thank you for your reply.
I tried the iso of Porteus 3.2.1 but, despite having a persistent dat file it seems Porteus does not persist packages that I install. For example, I installed Google Chrome, it is working. Now I restart Porteus, poof Chrome is gone and I need to re-install it. I checked the dat file, perfectly good.
Why is that?

How did you install Chrome? Did you add the extramod cheatcode to your start up parms to point to the folder where you saved your Chrome module?

I do not know what you mean by "extramod cheatcode"
I updated the Porteus.conf file that is on the USB stick (where it reads changes=...) so that it points to the dat file. Same thing I did with Porteus 3.1

as Ed_P asked, could you outline the procedure of how you installed Chrome?
