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.

This is not about the Porteus v1.0 Beta (x86_64 Version).

Please open new topic for this.

If you using the x86_64 version by fanthom.

Please looks at 64bit 'guest' account available for testing

If this is not about that , please open new topic.
Suggestions:
Try to edit the perm's of the guest account in K USER Manager

@Hamza
i don't really trust unetbootin - have heard about troubles caused by it on slax forum. What's wrong with existing installers?

@beny
try my script for getting the aufs and creating a patch from it:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

dest=~/Desktop/aufs2.patch

mkdir /tmp/aufs$$
cd /tmp/aufs$$
git clone http://git.c3sl.ufpr.br/pub/scm/aufs/aufs2-standalone.git aufs2-standalone.git
cd aufs2-standalone.git
git checkout origin/aufs2.1-38
mkdir ../a ../b
cp -r Documentation ../b
cp -r fs ../b
cp -r include ../b
rm ../b/include/linux/Kbuild
cd ..
diff -rupN a/ b/ > $dest
cat aufs2-standalone.git/aufs2-base.patch >> $dest
cat aufs2-standalone.git/aufs2-standalone.patch >> $dest
cat aufs2-standalone.git/aufs2-kbuild.patch >> $dest

echo && echo "latest patch created as $dest"
if you want to get latest patch from git (for unreleased rc kernels) then change:
"git checkout origin/aufs2.1-38"
to
"git checkout origin/aufs2.1"

i have compiled 2.6.38.2 + aufs2.2-38 but deactivation bug persist. Seems that i'll have to give a shot to unionfs instead...

@blablotin
"Is their a way to allow any non-root acount to mount floppy or external hard drive?"
you can do it in two ways:
1) install and configure 'sudo' package (plenty of tutorials on google)
2) create static entry in fstab, for example:
"/dev/sdb1 /mnt/hd vfat noauto,user,umask=0 0 0"
"user,umask=0" means that normal user can mount the device and has full read/write access.
fstab is refreshed during each boot so you need to go with a workaround as described here:
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=383&start=10#p2239

good luck!

@Issack
ty

@beny
unfortunately same issue :(
unionfs failed to compile with 2.6.38.2 so i couldn't try it out. I have sent email to Junjiro about our issues, hopefully he will be able to fix them soon.
(in worst case we can disable 'deactivation' feature for 1.0)

Sorry , but AUFS is Another Union File System

If you install Union Patch and Aufs Patch , you will make some conflicts.

I think,

Union wil be not compatible with our Porteus , because the LLS by fanthom was written for use AUFS and not UNION
