I was OK, I think, until finish of 5a. guest@porteus:/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC$ boincmgr
bash: boincmgr: command not found
guest@porteus:/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC$

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mkdir /tmp/bnc
guest@porteus:~$ for b in  BOINC/boinc*; do ! [[ $b =~ png$ ]] && mv $b /tmp/bnc; done
guest@porteus:~$ sudo cp boinc-7.2.42.i686.xzm /mnt/sda1/porteus/modules

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

A file boinc_mgr has to be created, the contents of which are shown. Do this with

Code: Select all

This now waits for text input from terminal. Paste in the above contents at the prompt. Hit Enter followed by ^D (Ctl+d) to signify End of Data. Verify contents

Code: Select all

Got so far as reboot. Looking at a black screen.

random: unblocking pool is initialized
and that is where it sits. Willing to start over ..NEW install from CD if you are, but instructions must be simplified. Listed step by step with exactly what to type and how. When you say Select All, I don't know if that means select (multiple lines) and paste into terminal or enter each line separately. You have put so much into this, this time around needs to be clearly effective or I can't follow it.
I stand by to take your preference.

^ At the moment see no reason for new install. Need some info, so from CD can you run

Code: Select all

du -sh  /mnt/sda1/porteus/changes
ls -lh /mnt/sda1/porteus/{,base,modules,optional}
ls -lh /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC
cat /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC/boinc_mgr
Then reboot from HD with step by step account, what you see on screen, and whether you do get to a screen offering a booting choice. Whether the gui boot choice was taken. Does it say it has found any modules before the Kernel panic?

I will be back to post the boot screens .... to the best of my ability. Wait for it.

Edit
Shut down, remove CD. Pwr up, b/w screen flashes by VERY FAST. Only make out first word SYSLINUX and saw the word MISSING. Then colored screen titled Porteus-3.1 32 bit w/ choices like Always Fresh and Copy to RAM etc. Then b/w screen Loading VMLINUZ .... ready. Those 5 errors and stops. I summarized those errors above.

Edit 2
Tried again. From HD. At the colored screen, I selected XFCE (I have never done that before) and I am now at my Desktop. Yes, loading modules was mentioned.

EDIT 3
and ... there is a Boinc Manager Icon on the System Menu.

EDIT 4
Thought I should wait ... but could not resist. Ran Boinc Manager from the menu. It opened, then a long wait .. something about 'status' .. then, gives error:
Unable to connect to the core client

It was NOT like that. It is now. I assume I need a reboot now ... so .... I will.

EDIT:
Something went bad. Had to boot from CD. Cannot document problem at this very moment. Assumed I edited that correction .. the APPEND line, wrong so booted up CD and looked again. Here is what it says:

and I don't see anything wrong with it. Now .. to document the boot failure.

EDIT:
No boot failure THIS TIME. Instead, boots to desktop just fine ... AND Boinc Mgr runs automatically. Get its ADVANCED screen ... on NOTICES tab and at the bottom of the window says:
Disconnected
Because I have not configured any projects????? I did not want to get ahead of things.

Fair enough. I do not have CD burning hardware, but can probably get the ISO on a thumb drive ... if I can figure out how to mount it. We can embrace this at the time. Thank you. Will await your next instructions.

^ Everything looks good. Add some projects, then give me output of Step 5c (iii). All future manipulations will not truncate any boinc processing that's going on, just only interrupting. :)

Boinc Manager advanced view. Says 'Disconnected' at the bottom of the window. Click TOOLS/ADD PROJECT OR ACCOUNT MANAGER. 'Disconnected' changes to CONNECTING TO LOCAL HOST and within 2 seconds, back to DISCONNECTED.

Try editing /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg to take out changes=/porteus so that append line looks like this:

Code: Select all

APPEND initrd=initrd.xz fsck timezone=US/Central utc cliexec=boinc~--dir~/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC~--daemon guiexec=/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC/boinc_mgr
and reboot.

Did the edit and rebooted. Desktop came up ... but clean ... as in missing files/folders I had saved there. FIREFOX comes up .. with zero extensions installed. Boinc Manager comes up but still stays disconnected.
