@brokenman
The advantage is the same like for keeping separate core, xorg modules and like for standard directories hierarchy (etc, usr, tmp, home) - I think easier to find and easier to make backup (copy only owned changes, not installed packages or restore to your chosen "fresh" mode - delete/don't-load all installed packages or delete/don't-load only your "changes") .

Ok, I see the advantages. I will put it on the TODO list as a final job. It is quite a job and as I see it, the same thing can be achieved as a user by managing any downloaded modules in the 'module' and 'optional' folders.

Rava you can get the ISO at: http://brokenman.porteus.org/nemesis in the testing folder.

Thanks. I guess, I can open it and copy the stuff from it, installing it like any other Porteus, right? As in: move the kernel and initrd and base modules to where the porteus.cfg finds them, and just add an entry for it, right?
Cheers!
Yours Rava

The ISO contains nemesis.cfg and looks for nemesis-XXXX.sgn

You can use the subfolder approach with porteus for neatness. The same should be implemented for nemesis eventually, we are working on it.

Let me know what the problem was please. I included pulseaudio because it mostly works out of the box. My audio also didn't work because the HDMI digital audio card is in card0 while the analog is in card1. I need to reverse the order to get audio. You can edit using pavucontrol by right clicking the volume icon and choosing to edit.

@brokenman

Any chance of getting a 32 bit version of Nemesis for us old guys with dinosaur netbooks? I've tried the neko/sensei conversion, but lack of firmware prevents getting anywhere with pacman.

@roadie:
Brokenman is not there yet. But it will come in due time. However, presently you can run, test and help us troubleshooting nemesis under virtualbox:

Unfortunately, my processor doesn't support virtualization for a 64 bit image.

Thanks, that is appreciated. It might also add some testers to the mix.

On a Dual Pentium D CPU with 2.66GHz, 3,5 GB RAM and sda1 as swap partition of 2 GB, how well would Nemesis in a VM run? Would my main system crash? [My main system is 3.1 XFCe x86-64 Porteus with Palemoon instead of FFx)
