Prior to deactivation:

root@porteus:/home/guest# mcedit /etc/usm/usm.conf 
root@porteus:/home/guest# grep MODULES /etc/usm/usm.conf

And it is here that the activation does not suppress the previous file! :unknown:

Presumably once the activated file has been edited, it becomes sort of persistent:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mkdir usmod
guest@porteus:~$ cp --parents /etc/usm/usm.conf usmod
guest@porteus:~$ mcedit usmod/etc/usm/usm.conf

root@porteus:/home/guest# grep MODULES /etc/usm/usm.conf

Anyway, main thing is it's working after a fashion, and if it opens up the slack only repo to us, well and good.

Update Edit 20-6-15 Terribly annoying. Read slacky as slackonly when doing usm on wireshark. So did not reach slackonly. Too optimistic. Back to drawing board. :(

However did discover something about aufs. Looks like to ensure edit is not persistent, have to effect edit thru another overlay, thus

Eldevin works surprizingly well on Porteus, as a standalone cliient and in browser (kudos to Haunted Cow!) but I can really do with a lot more linux MMOs (wistfully Neverwinter or at leastRegnum graqde!) in general. Steam is no real solution under Porteus because it's reported to take too much memory overhead to also play the games you want, so the story I'm getting on some linux boards is they're concentrating on using PlayOnLinux rather than Q4Wine (?) along with Arc instead, which would also be a memory saver for Porteus I believe IF POL also works in Porteus. I dunno. I just wanna play!

openxcom available on Slackonly, which now rates a mention in pkgs.org.

Also check out dwarffortress. Not able to work out some of the fractal images being generated. Do not know if program working correctly, or has to be tweaked, or whether the pc lacks the memory and the power to represent the worlds correctly. Certainly not been able to make out any animal fractal shapes. Need input from someone who knows the game.

I love Battle for Wesnoth, and Supertuxkart. Supertux 2 is a sidescroller like the Super Mario series. Secret Maryo Chronicles is pretty nice too. Flare is an isometric fantasy similar to Diablo and is pretty cool but short. Sdl-ball is nice. Not to mention emulators like retroarch, pcsx, mednafen, etc. Those are from Ubuntu repos mostly. Once I figure out how to turn them into modules, I'll be sure to share. :good:
