I encounter that on occasion also. I suspect RAM corruption somewhere. Rebooting works.

In the following code, you will see an error I made. I don't know if it made any difference. It is pretty far down.

@wacojohn

^ d was alright. it's an alias for directory listing. One more thing, to make life easier and to reduce burden of concentration you can just click on Select All in head of code block, highlighted copy with ^C (Ctl+c) and paste into terminal at the prompt with ^V (Ctl+v).

Boinc is working just fine, but it's your changes that I'm worried about. There could be something there that is interfering with the startup process.

Slim down Changes
  1. Save config file containing append line APPEND initrd=initrd.xz fsck timezone=US/Central utc cliexec=boinc~--dir~/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC~--daemon changes=EXIT:/disk

    Code: Select all

    cp  /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg  /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.svd
  2. FF profile already saved in real filesystem: /mnt/sda1/disk. Save anything else you wish to save in: /mnt/sda1/disk
  3. Code: Select all

    cp /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.tst /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg
  4. Reboot
  5. As root:

^ d .... as in ctrl d? Unless I am mistaken, the error was just 'd' ..... instead of just 'cd'. Dunno ... just don't want a miscommunication between us. I am tryin'g to do all this right by you.

Was going to bring this up earlier, but did not want to take up any more of your time than necessary. Now, it has become an issue. Select all/copy will copy a 'stack' of commands. Paste into terminal will put all those commands on one line or more lines AS COPIED .... right???? Cool, .. until one of the commands executes a 'program' .. whereby, the terminal window halts the stack at that point ... and the execution of commands halts until the 'program' is terminated ... (hope I am making sense). Therefore, I am beset with a failure to complete your request to complete the stack and report. Soooo, have been copy/pasting one line at a time ... and when I get a 'halted' terminal window, I open another and continue the steps/lines as requested. I hope again I am making sense. Stacking commands is a great 'Linux feature', but when the Terminal window halts .. it blows away a noob like me. Clear this up for me ... please.

Now ... will continue with your instructions .. to the best of my ability. Will be right back.

Check that FireFox is working, and that all extensions are there.

boincmgr was the only one that held up the terminal. But now that he functions, we can try him as a background job.
  1. Did you have to provide a password when you used sudo to copy porteus.cfg?
  2. When all is well with FF, quit FF
  3. Then

    Code: Select all

    sudo umount .mozilla
    du -sh .mozilla

All previously missing items are missing ... no FF extensions. Boinc is not running but is on Main menu/System. I cannot remember if sudo required a p/w ... I THINK it did.

Here is porteus.cfg at this time:

Code: Select all

LABEL XFCE
MENU LABEL Graphics mode (XFCE)
KERNEL vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=initrd.xz fsck timezone=US/Central utc
TEXT HELP
    Run Porteus the best way we can.
    Try to autoconfigure graphics
    card and use the maximum
    allowed resolution
ENDTEXT
Looks to me like something did not go right. Hope it is something obvious and simple. Sorry.

Holding off further editing until I hear back from you.

No Sir. No extensions etc. I ran each command on a separate command line.

Tried it again ... but with a 'stacked' paste .. all three lines. Still no FF extensions.

^ Something not quite right here. Output is inconsistent. Do not have FF. Only use PaleMoon and SeaMonkey, but do something of the sort daily with SeaMonkey.
Require
  1. Get tree with USM, and stick it in modules folder.
    1. Paste into text editor (mousepad) statements of code blocks in 6 and directions given in 6.
    2. Save this in a file in /mnt/sda1/disk
  2. Reboot
  3. Do not start firefox. If FF running quit it.
  4. Using mousepad retrieve instructions saved in /mnt/sda1/disk
  5. Do
    1. Code: Select all

      pkill firefox; ps -e | grep firefox
    2. If firefox shows up

      Code: Select all

      pkill -9 firefox;  ps -e | grep firefox 
      There should not be any firefox left. If there is, try repeating last statement.
    3. Code: Select all

      cat /proc/cmdline
      cat /var/log/porteus-livedbg
      cd /home/guest
      du -sh .mozilla
      [[ -d .mozilla ]] && rm -r .mozilla
      ls .mozilla
      cp -a /mnt/sda1/disk/.mozilla /home/guest
      du -sh .mozilla
      tree -L 2 .mozilla
      tree -d .mozilla
      
  6. Fire up FF and check for extensions etc.

Have not done anything but FIND tree in USM. I see it, but not sure what to do with it. Will it offer to auto activate? Do I say yes? Do I put it in /porteus/modules? :

Looking ahead, not sure I understand this:
Paste into text editor (mousepad) statements of code blocks in 6 and directions given in 6.
Save this in a file in /mnt/sda1/disk
"6" being? Save as what filename? code blocks??

EDIT:

I THINK I understand after reading closer. Step 6 of this reply. Code blocks .. the text of each instruction window titled CODE in step 6 along with their output. If correct, just need answer to tree and autoactivate.

I can also access this forum with another (tablet) computer in order to access instructions. Let me know what you prefer.

tree-1.0.6.... Select/highlight it, click on Download, click on Convert to Module if not already checked, click on Download. When the download completes copy the .xzm module to your /porteus/modules folder, there dbl click on it and Activate it.

Please do not do reboot yet. Must amend couple of statements.
