Is this good? I assume your referring to the 2D GUI accelerators for an emulator under win?

The error about /var/run/slim.auth shouldn't hinder login (please confirm). The file is generated during login.
At first I thought it was ck-session but after booting ck-list-sessions shows only one session. If you have any clues I am all ears on this one.
How do i become super user?

@fanthom
I did not give you accurate enough information to recreate my bug before. It goes like this:

I start the machine with two USB sticks connected, one with the OS (2.1-kde4-rc2-32) the other one has files, both are ext4 formatted.
Now I stop the files-usb, extract it and insert the fat one: the machine rejects it.

IMHO the machine learns that the usb is ext4 formatted and when a fat fs comes in, it won't accept it, but when I try the other partition (a posix one, I think it is ext3) the machine takes it without complaining.

Here the output of message:

Code: Select all

@EdP
modules 0-2 are shared between desktop editions so it should work the same no matter of DE you are actually using.
please run 'md5sum' on 002-xorg.xzm and check if it's the same for XFCE and RazorQT.

@wread
thanks for evaluation. i think i know what's causing this:
when you boot with stick inserted then it gets it's own entry (with respective filesystem) in /etc/fstab. if you remove it and plug another stick with different fs then you get an error as filesystem does not match the one saved in /etc/fstab.
please do a simple test for me:
delete /etc/fstab, try to recreate the error and let me know how it goes.

@brokenman, Ahau
do we need /etc/fstab at all? maybe i could never create it since it's for reference only (and cannot even be modified)?
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

LXDE/Xfce use /etc/fstab for showing internal volumes in gvfs applications (pcmanfm, thunar). If I delete /etc/fstab, they all disappear from the file manager. What about a udev rule to remove the fstab entry for removable drives when they are removed?
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

The last download will appear
- clicking right and selecting open the containing folder will:
open audacious instead of the file manager.

Thanks.

Mount-manager also uses fstab for something. If an alternative can be found to removing it then I would prefer the alternative.

Yes and yes it does login & startx, eventually.

However XFCE 32bit does not with -vga cirrus. See attached images.

It would be nice if a single -vga option worked for all Porteus versions.

@Ahau, brokenman
ok - /etc/fstab stays in. would be good to have the udev rule before we go final.

@francois
i think you are referring to qmmp and this bug was closed in rc2. are you using old changes or something?
please check $HOME/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list and make sure that you have:

Code: Select all

inode/directory=kde4-dolphin.desktop;
@EdP
did you run md5sum on 002-xorg.xzm from Razor and XFCE ISO's? is it the same?
also - on the attached image i see udev timeout which means that some emulated hardware did not get initialized. would be nice if you could track this down and change relevant qemu component to get rid of it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

XFCE-32bit

Installt for testing on an Ext2 usb-stick

In porteus.cfg:

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz xfce changes=/porteus

is missing, so nothing is gonna be saved by default.

Running fresh install on my main computer and unable to run Porteus. It freeze at udev stage but the 'welcome' sound of KDE4 desktop is played some seconds after.

I'm unable to run any versions of v2.1 rc2 so far and I'm unable to retrieve any logs of errors/events.

@Hamza
have you also tried a text / non X version, too?
You can scroll up with the keyboard and make screenshots using a real (digital) camera, if there is something interesting to see, put that up, e.g. on tinypic and link it in your post...

With a fresh XFCe booting up, so far all is working as it should with v2.1 RC2 x86-64, seems some of my old settings fro, 2.0 made the system act weird...

Found another issue:
Trying to rename the label of a USB stick using gparted results in this error:

Code: Select all

Set partition label to "16GB_W_G" on /dev/sdb1  00:00:00    ( ERROR )
     	
mlabel ::"16GB_W_G" -i /dev/sdb1
     	
mlabel: invalid option -- 'i'
Mtools version pre6-3.9.8, dated 27 May 2001
Usage: mlabel [-vscVn] [-N serial] drive:
Is there really no newer version than a pre-*** from 2001? More than 12 years old?
Cheers!

No, nothing. Even text mode doesn't works. I'm blocked at stage of "udev" just after "additional modules".

@Hamza
You also tried it with just 000-kernel.xzm and 001-core.xzm?
Notthing in your rootcopy? Have you checked the md5 of 000-kernel.xzm and 001-core.xzm?
Have you some extras in your kernel / APPEND line in porteus.cfg?

I presume there is nothing to be seen on screen for a screenshot via camera to be taken?
Cheers!
Yours Rava
