Multisystem install in Porteus

Post#1 by LinuxStud » 21 Feb 2013, 02:56

I'm new to Porteus,but I really liked how fast it was to install it on usb flash drive and i'm so grateful to the folks behind this nice distro.
I'd like to install the usb multisystem; a french program to install up to 10 distros on a single usb flash drive.How can I do it?
How do i add a repository to Porteus{ a debian one in this case} ,how do update packages and install Multisystem?
I was able to do it in Ubuntu using wget,sudo apt-get install.
Thanks .

@LinuxStud
Checked slackware repositories but seems that 'multisystem' application is not there.
our package manager supports debian repo so you may try it.

Porteus is Slackware based so there is a chance that debian package wont work. if this is the case then you may try to compile it from sources - please read our FAQ how to do it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

If the multiboot system you refer to is this one http://www.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot- ... rom-linux/ http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multi ... b-creator/ Porteus is listed as an option. But it may not support the 2.0 changes yet so you would have to manually adjust the menu for it.

When it comes to the above named ./install-depot-multisystem.sh , there are some dependencies missing for porteus. Currently trying to get them, but USM won't update due to an sourceforge site error. See here: viewtopic.php?f=117&t=3205&p=31612#p31612

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:/mnt/DL$ ./install-depot-multisystem.sh 
which: no apt-get in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts:.:.)
which: no lsb_release in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts:.:.)
which: no zenity in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts:.:.)
which: no dpkg in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts:.:.)
 Error: apt-get lsb_release zenity dpkg 
I will give you the heads up when I managed to get ./install-depot-multisystem.sh running...

su changes the terminal itself from the current user to a root-terminal, not runs a certain given program as root.
Also, your above cli line would try to change from your current user to the user "./install-depot-multisystem", at least these are the errors I do get:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:/mnt/DL$ su - ./install-depot-multisystem.sh
No passwd entry for user './install-depot-multisystem.sh'
guest@porteus:/mnt/DL$ su - ./install-depot-multisystem sh
No passwd entry for user './install-depot-multisystem'
Cheers!
