[SOLVED] Modules don't start - 3.1.8-porteus 32 bit

Post#1 by chris3453 » 28 Apr 2012, 21:44

Hi,

I am new to Porteus. I have managed to add the correct module to get my wifi card working but now i have installed and activated two more modules. (also rebooted and check modules were active in PPM)

modules/truecrypt-7.1-i486-1sl.xzm
modules/wireshark-1.4.6-i486-1sl.xzm

However when i try to start these from the menu shortcuts nothing happens. Can someone tell me what logs to look in to find out whats going on. I had a quick look in /var/log/messages but nothing is reported. Is there a way to turn on debugging to get more info on what happening.

Thanks

Chris

I have the same problem with truecrypt when i try to run truecrypt in terminal as root i get the following error.
truecrypt: error while loading shared libraries : libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0 : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've activated module as root .

Thanks in advance

using slackyd should resolve dependencies that you need and download everything to /var/slackyd.
From there you can use txz2xzm package.tgz module.xzm to convert to modules.

The library you are missing belongs to: wxwidgets.

Have you tried placing the truecrypt module in your PPM storage folder, then activating it from there? It will attempt to resolve and download dependencies.

Sorry for late reply.
When i install WxWidget first, then truecrypt works without problem.
Thanks for quick replies.
