[SOLVED] How to avoid "Welcome Porteus" message ?

Post#1 by kata930 » 04 Jun 2011, 09:08

It is not a bug, it maybe a design of the porteus.
But I really want to know a solution for this.

I add a cheatcode "toroot" , but it does not work.
Actually I use little bit old x-window module which I use with slax v6.xx.
When I use 002-xorg.xzm (which is included), "toroot" work fine.

When I use my old x-window(002-xorg-xxx.xzm),
the green colored welcome message always appears.
so, I enter "root" and "toor" ,and enter startx;telinit.. x-window will start without problem.

Please advice!

you cant replace porteus modules from /base (especially 000, 001 and 002 shouldn't be touched by the users) with your own ones and expect that everything will work :wink:
We do not support this kind of swaps.
please re-post this message in "Unsupported Software" and provide a link to your modified 002-xorg module. I'll have a look on it when i find some free time.
(stuff in Unsupported Software has lower priority)

Cheers
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Since you're able to get in with starx, I'm guessing your problem revloves around etc/rc.d/rc.4 (assuming you're still using autoexec=telinit~4 in your cheatcodes).

Check that script to make sure that script exists and is calling the proper display manager.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Dear fanthom san,

Thank you for the comment.
I see, that is unsupported.

Dear Ahau san,

Thank you for the comment.
I will check those script files.
