New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

got teamviewer 8 to run on porteus 2.0, 2.1 , 64bit!

Hello,

I finally got teamviewer8 to run stably on Porteus 2.0 64bit and Porteus 2.1 64bit.

It was a bit tricky.

These are the steps to get Teamviewer 8 to run fine:

a) download Teamviewer8 (tar.gz file) from www.teamviewer.com
b) as user "guest", depack it to /opt -> you will have /opt/teamviewer8 (including proper file permissions for user guest)
c) as user "root", start it -> it will exit, but the teamviewer daemon will run (you can check it with "ps aux")
d) as user "guest", run it again -> it will run properly, because it needs the daemon that was started as user "root".

Have fun! 8)

instead of starting the daemon manually you should create a booting script which will do it automatically on every boot (sysvinit script) or use rc.local as described here:

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
