I am sorry. I am a disabled Viet Nam Vet with 'minor' concentration problems. When things get too convoluted, I might miss something. I am very sorry. Please .. look this over and see if you can rescue me. So sorry.

Also, have to leave house for a FEW hours. Will check as soon as I get back.

^Not necessarily done something wrong. Let's see what the command line looked like & what porteus did:

^ Expected last porteus.cfg append line to look like

Code: Select all

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz fsck timezone=US/Central utc
For when not testing just append changes=EXIT:/disk to line in /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg to give a line like

Code: Select all

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz fsck timezone=US/Central utc changes=EXIT:/disk
The porteus.cfg with this line would then be used for rebooting, and hopefully restoring all saved changes.

Reboot followed by

Code: Select all

cat /proc/cmdline
cat /var/log/porteus-livedbg
Update Preparation

From post with miscellaneous modules need to download the systemd and gtk3 modules into /mnt/sda1/disk and verify md5 sums of downloaded modules.

Code: Select all

ls -lh /mnt/sda1/disk
To check everything is there.

but I do not elect to make assumptions any longer. So .... please ... no rhetoric ... just simple step by step instructions as to what to do next. If it is answer a question, .... I will, if it is to do something, make it clear and simple, and I will do it and give you the results.

I want to impress on you that the problem IS ME ... not YOU. Thank you immensely for your patience.

Lot of instruction there that I don't understand:
Update Preparation

From post with miscellaneous modules download the systemd and gtk3 modules into /mnt/sda1/disk
Verify md5 sums of downloaded modules:

Code: Select all
md5sum /mnt/sda1/disk/*.xzm


Check everything is there

Code: Select all
ls -lh /mnt/sda1/disk
Entirely beyond my comprehension. Sorry. Unclear (to me) exactly what to download and from where. I am really sorry.

@wacojohn

Try Step 6 again. If it cannot be completed, it might be best, as suggested by you, to scrap the whole project. :wall:

Hmmm. That was easy. Somehow I was trying Step 6 in some other reply ...much more complex. :oops:
