Just usr the changes= cheatcode and point the changes to a sizeable linux file system. Then you will be limited by the size of the target location.

Example:
At the boot menu press tab and add the line: changes=/mnt/sdXn
Xn should be a linux partition with enough storage.

I have the same problem when there is an error in the .deb file, try another version of the file or use an .rpm I.

I wish the USM had an option of using .deb and .rpm like merging the SPM and the USM packages. also to have the option of converting and installing .rpm and .deb in one click.

We tried using the debian repos in the package manager of the 2.x series of Porteus. It didn't work out so well. Too many broken dependencies.

To install deb packages you can use dpkg_1.16.15 and lib4dpkg_1.16.15 (made in neko SPM) modules from:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7elwcgmk5mwtmme/FmFMsdUIO8

Download them and activate,
next execute in terminal as root:
touch /var/lib/packages/status
touch /var/lib/packages/available

see options for dpkg - execute:
dpkg --help

now try this:

dpkg -i /path/to/deb-package

Done!

You can install debs to another directory and next build module from that directory.
