In the process of making a fix for it, as it helps for me to also know source of Porteus data. You can test it out , and if it works brolenman could incorporate it, as not so desirable to burden brolenman with trivial fixes.

@Blaze
I don't think we've ever had boot sounds on Porteus. I hate them as if I forget to use a cheatcode it wakes people up at 3am. If majority agree I am happy to add them though.

@Ed_P
The thing is, I didn't make any intentional change to the way 3.2 generates porteus-livedbg. I have written update scripts that use the livedbg file from Porteus rc2 and don't want to hunt through to find and make the changes.

The remaster script is in the porteus folder. It's called make_iso.sh.

Can that approach not be used for base modules in the future? Can we not create the module updates ourselves? Won't the updates be saved in the save.dat file as part of changes? As you can see, I'm confused.
My vision is to have an update function that updates the base modules (001,002). Security patches will be added using the alldesktops method, but new versions of Porteus can either be downloaded or you can simply update. This will minimize work and allow Porteus (slackware) to continue on should it be abandoned in favour of a new base.

Hehe, you're right. BTW, I remember that in Slax-Remix there were sounds.

Hi Jay!
I tried the kde5 version in VB, it is a good start; some files still missing.

Besides, kde people moved some files to other places.... for instance Porteus service menus should live now in /usr/share/kservices5 (dolphin right-click menues). Others you have already noticed..

Regards!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

Mind if I merge some of this Bogomips? I could use it to add an automatic ISO update feature. That is, when there are base modules to update, a person booting from an ISO could have their ISO remastered automatically. So Ed_P I have to retract my statement about why Porteus doesn't care about where it booted from in the case of an ISO.

Thanks for the info Wread.

:Yahoo!: I like the sounds of this. :good:

But why couldn't the updates be saved as part of the changes file?

With pleasure, and hopefully Ed will be able to give it a full workout beforehand. Also contains the indefinite delay wait on iffy usb stick. After booting from usb it goes offline while kernel, initrd being loaded, then comes on again before initrd processing and goes off just before search for sign file. :twisted:

Test it. Replace the initrd.xz in your iso with the test initrd.xz, boot from iso with this initrd, and see if /var/log/porteus-iso data is something like the example given. If not working properly or still unsure how, open topic under Intertmediate/Advanced, and we'll progress it from there. .:friends:

@ brokenman

What about
Can you add 'manual mount' function for Nemo (Cinnamon), Caja (Mate) and, perhaps for Thunar (Xfce), Dolphin (KDE)?
Note. If possible, after manual mounting of these partitions - they are not will be displayed at the desktop of these file managers.

Cinnamon just crashed. You are currently running in Fallback Mode. Yes/No.
Damn!

Please add USM-3.2-Russian-Localization-by-Blaze.7z (mirror) to the next release of Porteus.

I'd prefer to stay away from changes folders/files as these are largely user centric. If I don't mess with it I can leave it out of the equation. Changes files can be a real headache. Also if just the base modules are updated then these changes can be easily rolled back.

Blaze, if you find out what makes those little triangle things that allow mount/unmount I'd like to know.

Thanks Bogomips, I'll stick with the ISO code for now until I can read through the USB thing.

RE: device visability in nemo(and others?) ...
a usb device(fat) added after bootup appears as it should and can be unmounted..
any(or maybe only POSIX?) device or partition present when booted does not..
tried out the gvfs-partition-toggle script from nemesis and this makes a partition visible
but cannot be unmounted by guest user via eject button..

It has long been observed that in the text mode Russian alphabet (сyrillic) appears as follows:

I tested it with Russian localization 010-locales-ru-utf8-noarch-2b1.xzm by PaulBy

Anybody knows how to fix it?

About Bookmarks in Nemo (Cinnamon). You can omit this step. I think that user will add necessary bookmarks in Nemo.
You are need to create bookmarks file at ~/.config/gtk-3.0 directory (where ~ it's guest and root directories)

for guest account

Code: Select all

file:///home/guest/Documents Documents
file:///home/guest/Downloads Downloads
file:///home/guest/Music Music
file:///home/guest/Pictures Pictures
file:///home/guest/Videos Videos     
for root account

Code: Select all

file:///root/Documents Documents
file:///root/Downloads Downloads
file:///root/Music Music
file:///root/Pictures Pictures
file:///root/Videos Videos     
example 1

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
file:///home/guest/Documents Documents
file:///home/guest/Downloads Downloads
file:///home/guest/Music Music
file:///home/guest/Pictures Pictures
file:///home/guest/Videos Videos
guest@porteus:~$ 
example 2

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
file:///root/Documents Documents
file:///root/Downloads Downloads
file:///root/Music Music
file:///root/Pictures Pictures
file:///root/Videos Videos
root@porteus:~# 
I don't know, but you can to run

Code: Select all

xdg-user-dirs-update
after this command you will recive this file user-dirs.dirs + at home folder of guest and root will be made these folders Public and Templates

Code: Select all
