Porteus Desktop Edition 3.0 rc2 bugs/feedback thread

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.

syslinux
porteus.cfg

(user can manually edit boot line but)

it might be helpful to expand the menu text, to clarify:
-- changes will persist if the "Graphical mode" entry is used
-- the "Copy to RAM" entry does not persist changes

Thanks Donald. udev seems to be the culprit. May need to increase the polling time of the device.

BTW... ifenslave? viewtopic.php?f=53&t=1621
When I tested bonding I used this one http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-13.10/ubuntu-mai ... 4.deb.html
But recently I've discovered that topic and I think this package is small enough (20Kb) to be included.
And I didn't know there are methods besides editing rc.M, so excuse me please... =)
Suggestions/corrections/additions are always welcome.

@donald
if this is really an udev fault then we can't do much as i would worry to upgrade this package myself to not break anything. i would wait till Pat does it in Slackware.
maybe there is a rule to control polling for optical media?

@Slaxmax
good to know - thanks.

@dustbunnies
persistence depends on 'changes=' cheatcode so i would avoid hardcoding it in the porteus.cfg description.
GUI mode can work without persistence and copy2ram can be persistent so if user modify default cheatcodes for these modes then the description would be misleading (yes - i know that user could also modify desc, but as i know life it would rarely happen)

@Kriss
added ifenslave package but i did not add a check to rc.M.
please use sysvinit script for this.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
