If config dir next to porteus...
Misunderstanding:

Now it works:
nemesis.iso/config (or /mnt/sdxY/config)
but could also works:
nemesis.iso/porteus/config (or /mnt/sdxY/porteus/config)
or maybe this solution:
move "base, modules, optional, rootcopy, make_iso.sh and porteus-v$ver-$arch.sgn" from nemesis.iso/porteus/ to nemesis.iso/

For USB modems support you need usb_modeswitch and modemmanager packages (+deps). For systemd run systemctl start ModemManager.service, udevadm control --reload-rules and replug modem. But without systemd I don't know how to enable/show Mobile Broadband connections under nm-applet tray icon.

Salutations... :good:
Does this rely on webkitgtk? If so then it is really not so ultra light.
"Fifth" web browser (created by an Opera dev) uses... FLTK webkit (the same one "Dillo" web browser uses... NOT webkitgtk)... :unknown:
https://github.com/clbr/fifth/blob/master/DESIGN
FLTK

TinyCoreOS is based on FLTK because it's window manager and apps are all ultra lightweight.
NTK (FLTK w/ cairo) is preferred by Non-Sequencer/DAW because low latency is required for DAW/DSP (Gtk/Qt are slow and bloated).
http://non.tuxfamily.org/ntk/

Recently... I raised the issue of a window manager based on NTK with Bill Spitzak (FLTK/FLWM)... he told me the 2 toolkits should be merged.

When there is time I will reach out to the NTK devs.

@brokenman... where do I go to get my status bumped back up to "Shogun"???
After alll... I am blue4meridian (however... I can't access my old account).

Best Regards... :beer:

A new suggestions.
1. Сompress all the images (png and jpg) in Porteus through service http://optimizilla.com/ = minimum size without losing quality - it will be a ultra light.
2. Сompress SVG images (icons) and etc via Converseen - look at this
For install Converseen type

Code: Select all

pacman -Sy converseen
3. What about to set this wallpaper by default?

@ fullmoonremix
The status is automated based on post number. I sent you a message about your old account.

@Blaze
Thanks for the graphic. The wallpaper is a little dark. I also changed the logo for Nemesis slightly. It is a round version. I am also not so fond of clear text that looks like a watermark.
I will stick with the current wallpaper. People generally change the wallpaper to whatever suits them anyway.

@fullmoonremix
"Fifth" web browser (created by an Opera dev) uses... FLTK webkit
Now from the github link you gave for the 'fifth' browser:
Webkit1 will be used. While the multi-process model of Webkit2 is indeed
more secure, it also brings both CPU and RAM overhead.

Also the price for lightweight (or not) is:

No native video support.
SVG will be supported by calling out to rsvg-convert, no native support.
WebGL will not be supported.
Web fonts will not be supported.

That's fine and it is the kind of browser I would use, but I'm afraid it is not for the majority. Thanks.

It's meant for users that prefer a spawning browser ("byob" style? aka... bring your own browser) using external apps.
You are absolutely correct. ... "Fifth" suffers from a major haircut (feature wise). That... probably explains it's high performance. :wall:

The dev's roadmap in regard to Webkit (over 1yr ago)...
Ideally, a new Webkit port to a light toolkit such as FLTK will be made.
That statement was quite some time ago. The review commentaries imply that they switched.

@brokenman or fanthom:
Is there a list of the packages or applications for the slackware kde4 under porteus? I would almost directly adopt it under nemesis.
