Porteus-v3.2.2 bug reports here

I replaced my Porteus porteus-4.9.12 vmlinuz and 000-kernel.xzm modules with the ones from http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/kernel/porteus-4.10.8/. This resulted in Porteus hanging on "copying content of /mnt/isoloop/porteus/rootcopy directory" when booting. I reverted back to the porteus-4.9.12 files.

I use kernel 4.10.8 in v3.2.2 64 bit. No problem during boot. But I do get lots of error messages during shut down,but still powering off. So not getting stuck. I presume it all hardware related .

v3.2.2 32 bit boots to text mode,but on xstart get a blank screen,in my old Laptop. INTEL 1.6 ghz processor,2 gb memory, VIA chrome9 IGP Graphics. I tried many combinations, but,x session fails. VIA CHIPS and openchrome driver may be the cause for latest x org package. Any alternate x window ?

Otherwise i am very happy with Porteus..runs like a cheetah!

Not sure what is going on with the USM but it's been steadily getting worse over the last couple of months that now even the stable hosts like Alien Bob have started giving Errors that there are no such files... :(

yet you can download the files directly from him using your web browser so they do exist.

I now also copied from Port 3.2.2 iso to sda1 the boot/syslinux and EFI folders. But to no prevail.


Now I have: /mnt/sda1/Boot/syslinux
(/mnt/sda1/boot is also available -> as symlink to /mnt/sda1/Boot)

Of course, the /mnt/sda1/Boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg is not used since I boot via NeoGRUB and its menu.lst

And also /mnt/sda1/EFI and its subfolders. Here is what these folders now look like:

Code: Select all

Still, trying to boot Porteus 3.2.2 ends with the very same kernel dump like quoted above.

Any ideas? Anyone? I cannot be the only one booting via NeoGrub, can I?


Or the only one having a more or less new PC with WitlessOS7 preinstalled, wanting to keep that OS and still have Linux as alternative. Or more precise: Have WitlessOS once or twice a year, while each and every day of the years running Linux...

... but this failiure to boot Porteus starts to annoy me...


Rava is a sad Panda right now, Porteus-wise... :(
Cheers!
Yours Rava

^ "NeoGRUB is an implementation of GRUB4DOS" Wow!! I use to use Grub4DOS until I switched to Grub2Win for EFI support. It's still on my old netbook if I'm not mistaken. Let me check and see what I had for Porteus on Grub4DOS.

With Grub2Win this is what I have for Porteus. Maybe it will help, maybe it won't.

Code: Select all

menuentry "Porteus 3.0.1 - installed" --class slackware   --class icon-porteus  {

     search -f /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz --set=root

     echo "USB root is:          "$root
     echo "ISO is:               n/a"
     echo "Porteus folders:      /"

     set porteus_parms="extramod=/Modules;/modsavedat volume=33 reboot=cold"  # acpi=off"

     echo "Porteus parms are:    "$porteus_parms
     echo
     sleep -v -i 15

     linux /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz $porteus_parms
     initrd /boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
}


menuentry "Porteus Cinnamon 3.2.2 - ISO AF+" --class slackware   --class icon-porteus  {

     set linux_folder="/porteus3.2"
     set iso="/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso"

     search -f /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz --set=root

     echo "ISO root is:          "$root
     echo "ISO is:               "$iso
     echo "Porteus folders:      "$linux_folder

     set porteus_parms="extramod=$linux_folder/Modules;$linux_folder/modsavedat noload=save.dat volume=33 reboot=cold"

     echo "Porteus parms are:    "$porteus_parms
     echo
     loopback loop $iso
     sleep -v -i 10

#     linux (loop)/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz from=$iso $porteus_parms
     linux /porteus3.2/vmlinuz from=$iso $porteus_parms        # kernel update
     initrd (loop)/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
}
-update-

The Mirror file is for Porteus ISO download , i'm talking about the file repository?

:oops: Disregard the mirror link. :fool:

But do review the forum link's reference to /etc/usm/'s files.

Put Alien-Mirror back too default and changed the main slackware-mirror to a local UK one but it made no difference.

Yet you can download it in your web browser using the default alien mirror that comes with porteus?

Porteus Vbox - 05-devel.xzm: this is not a valid module

I give up , yet another thing....

Thanks for trying to help Ed but i can't remember all these various fixes,patches and workarounds every time with fresh boots or fresh installs , i'll just wait for the next version of portues to be released.

vlcplayer started playing an .flv file, then crashed Porteus. darktable activates but does not start. Still can't access the slackonly database (trying to update Kodi 16 to Kodi 17 Krypton); LIBS.TXT not found -- for the past week.
