Dependency Hell (...the webwarper version?)

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.

hihihi..if I am already being called a troll 8)

Donald, everybody knows that you are not a troll. In fact, your advices a pretty much appreciated on the forum. How come you never offered yourself as a mediator for the porteus forum? You are doing such a good job.

Salutations... :good:

I think Slackware has the fewest levels of hell... but apparently (@ least for me) there seems to be a caveat...
there is a possibility that some Slackware packages may need more support.
At this point I avoid using Slackware frontends when bundling instead using Slackware dependencies for compatibility with Porteus as much as possible.

Best Regards... :beer:

A fully blown slackware install has very few troubles with deps in my experience, but the package database is somewhat limited. IMHO gentoo has by far the best dependency resolution and packaging tools. I am thinking of making a porteus lxde version (with systemd) so people can actually try out systemd and get to know it before passing judgements. I see many people against it, that have probably not even taken the time to use it. I find it very useable, if not a little bloated.
How do i become super user?

@ francois
Thanks francois. :friends:
When I first came here I made a (CRDA)-Module request and it took (IIRC) less
than 2 hr to get it.(thanks Hamza).This was unusual (to me) and impressive.
This was one of many reasons to stay here and to try to give something back to the community.
This is why I decided to help other people to solve some Linux riddles.
But the truth is, if you want me to be responsible for something, or being bound to something, then I have to say no thanks.

All of you got my respect for keeping porteus alive.
I'm counting on you guys...

Pimarily... I'm using the following... AMD 64bit quad core (octacore next month?) APU w/16gb DDR3 (ASRock N68C-GS4 FX). 8)
USM is working except for Slackware repo (for that I have to use pkgs.org).

Tried changing mirror? See USM Bug Reports for how to, if you haven't. Soon as I start testing, will PM you with details for 64 bit alpha testing. In the meantime let's try and see if we can't get your Slackware on line. :friends:
