Wishlist for porteus 3.1

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.

Thanks for posting. I just sent you an email regarding adding your repository to our package manager. It will require setting up rsync on your server. Also I just checked and the maximum download speed I can get from your server is around 160Kb per second.

Hi Panagiotis,

Thanks for posting. Actually your english is very good. I encourage you to start your blog. Don't be worried about your english.

@Community
After speaking with Panagiotis I have decided to add this repo to USM. It has lasted 12 months and the maintainer is quick to respond. After he sets up rsync I will add it to our database. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi guys and thank you for your kind words!

My repo updated every week immediate after public update of slackbuilds.
(except from i am being away from my home and this is very rare) :roll:

Some caveats is: this packages is building in stable Slackware (with latest patches apply)
and some times few of that is not working at current...
I have updated my blog recently (and i plan to update frequently) with more information
about how building my packages and i am glad if this repo helping with any way other people.

@brokenman: rsync is up and ready....

Will that then be a new USM version, or will the current 3.1.7 just "know" about the new repository?

Me thinks you will have to make a new one, since in -h lists its knows repos "alien|ponce|salix|slackware|slacky|all"
Cheers!
Yours Rava

Yes it will be a new version. I lost the OS on my work computer so have to spend time reconstructing it (installing windows 10). This new version will delayed for a week. Sorry.

<off topic>At least SM WIndows now realizes that their OS is so crappy that they have to give it to us for free. Who would have guessed so that Linux and Android (that's just one Linux variant) would bring SM , sorry MS to that! </mission accomplished>

Also, all computers on the OSS are now Linux based, no longer are there any Windoze Computers allowed on OSS: :D
Not joking here, that's a real news, and not that new even! Most of you heard about that already, probably.</off topic>

But I will have to play with Witless7 at work soon again. [And the admin does a crappy job *shrug* It's his job, not mine. Me thinks he has a lot to do, since he not changed the errors and bugs of the setup on that Witless 7 I already told them about, like, 2 years ago...]

I have 7 pre-installed on my newest Laptop, but usually never run it. (What for? To have the need of running a virus scanner and the need of having a personal fire wall? That is not even part of the kernel and therefore can be easily tricked?)

But it is nice how you can abuse use it's hidden first partition to put in your Porteus, or Puppy, or such. :D
Cheers!
Yours Rava

Currently syncing the slackonly repository but the bandwidth limit makes it extremely slow. After 12 hours it has pulled packages from a --> g.

Can confirm, :) having just downloaded openoffice (105MB} in a bit under half an hour.

@francois
It's as I feared. Slackonly is affected. And it's going to be worse, as Greece did not get a breathing space. and has to knuckle down, :( Perhaps you may wish to send an email?

For next version, be it 4.0 or whatever...
I really miss LXDE. I know it has already been covered (LXDE is maintained by just one person and has "no future"), but Porteus really shines with LXDE and is super fast in older hardware. I think it would be worth it to put out LXDE flavors of Porteus while it remains currently available.
