Ok I found a xzm file and downloaded it and installed it . It`s in the menu but won`t start. Nor will it start in the terminal. Now firefox won`t start from the menu.
Decided not to waste my time playing with Porteus anymore since it`s obviously plagued with problems.

Make sure you picked the right architecture: 64bit works only on 64bit.

Google chrome will not boot in root mode unless modified.
