Porteus 2.0 boot issue

Post#1 by banshee22 » 04 Jun 2013, 15:16

Hi All,

I'm trying to move a Porteus 1.1 usb key to Porteus 2.0 but i have to face some issues.

I'm using this cheatcode line:

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz root=/dev/ram0 rw autoexec=xconf;telinit~4 lxde toroot nosound splash=verbose

And startx doesn't start...Last error message is: "INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled to 5 minutes",

Then if i press enter, system ask me for root password in console mode :-(

Any idea?

Thanks for your help

hi banshee22,

porteus-2.0 has different cheatocde set (much simpler) please use these:

Code: Select all

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz lxde login=root volume=0%
if you are using 32bit version then please remove 'lxde' cheatcode as LXDE is not present for this arch.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Great!

I tried Porteus 2.1, 32 bits lxde.

I've always the message boot message:
/usr/sbin/lxdm: line 31: /usr/sbin/lxdm-binary: cannot execute binary file
.....
"INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled to 5 minutes",

I've the same message if I try to execute /usr/sbin/lxdm-binary extract from 003-lxde.xzm ...

So is there definitively no way to have lxde on porteus 32 bits?

Finally, I decided to try porteus 2.1 rc2 32 bits, lxde. It works well but I would be happy to make some comments about it... Where is it possible? (lost in the forum ;-) )
