Suggestion: Module control centre

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.

Suggestion: Module control centre

Post#1 by Phiphler » 02 Jan 2015, 22:02

I've really grown to like Porteus. Slackware is the perfect base for a stable and modular system. If I need something that is not available in the USM or Slackbuilds I can just use tools like https://github.com/ViktorNova/architect to build it, or just build it from source.

One thing I feel is missing a tool to keep track of which modules are loaded. I put the modules I make in the /porteus/modules and /porteus/optional, but it's sometimes hard to remember which modules I already activated.

A tool that could show me what modules are loaded and be used to load and unload would be very helpful.

Hi, to see modules, usually using CLI: lsblk.
