Problems installing.

Post#1 by stevie74 » 19 Jun 2013, 18:43

I'm having problems installing Porteus on my Pc, my error message is this ......

./Porteus-installer-for-linux.com (Permission denied)

Does this mean I have to be online to install Porteus?

What path do I take, I don't know which bin the command is in? Or even know the command name.

if chmodding wont help then please launch the installer as root (on *buntu systems you can run 'sudo su' to switch to the root user ) this way:

Code: Select all

sh Porteus-installer-for-linux.com
if that still wont work then please mount your stick manually:

Code: Select all

mkdir /tmp/work
mount /dev/sdXY /tmp/work
and then run 'sh Porteus-installer-for-linux.com'
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

It's inside a folder called 'boot' in the root of whatever device you have put Porteus.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Well, Tried older version of Porteus (Slackware 13.37) and it's installed, whether it was my iso's I downloaded I don't know.

Having fun looking around Porteus right now. :)

Oh, by the way I had to change Id's because forgot passwd on both forum account and email account. :(
