[Solved] some question

Post#1 by Fistandantilus » 20 Jul 2011, 19:58

Hi,

was using slax and slax remix before and I like to see that this concept is continued with Porteus.

I´am using the 32 bit version. Here are my questions:

ping -> no response if I ping another PC in the network, also the other way around doesn´t work, Porteus not reachable from outside -> is the firewall the reason? how can I deactivate it?
partition manager -> not available in 32 bit -> need to use 64 bit -> this should be included in 32 bit asap
samba -> how do I start it? smbd and nmbd are not working
desktop sharing -> not available? I would like to access Porteus from other machines (windows) in the network, so far I was using tight vnc

Thanks,
F.

Here is a few solutions. If they are not satisfiying enough, you can ask for some modules on the appropriate thread:
i486 xzm module requests

I have read on the forum that due to restriction of space on the iso to 300MB maximum for porteus 32-bit edition, gparted or KDE partition editor where not included. Demands are also considered for future edition of porteus.

1) gparted available from slax modules, download and right click on it:
http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=3963

2) desktop sharing, the only one that I found is:
http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=3052

Do these fit some of your needs?

Thanks for your feedback I need to check everything. Gparted is not needed anymore as I have used the 64bit version to do that :D

What about my samba question?

For desktop sharing I need the other way around I need to access Porteus from a windows machine :)

@Fistandantilus:

I should have begun my last thread with a welcome on the porteus forum. We hope you will appreciate the experience.

For samba, I am not very knowledgeable or even not knowledgeable at all. Maybe you should try a post in the general chat section with the title How to use samba under porteus or the like in it:
http://porteus.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=48

For desktop sharing a google search will help you to find a program. Try keywords: desktop sharing from windows to linux. Or I imagine that you could install virtual box on your window machine, and then within this virtual machine a linux system. You get virtual box here:

for sharing over samba good option is cifs - look in my example PC-windows sharing Laptop-porteus-client
my home network is 192.168.0.1 windows sharing name is d

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/windows
mount -t cifs //192.168.0.1/d /mnt/windows -o username=smbguest,guest 
please check second pc for enabled firewalls
i hope you help

is the firewall the reason? how can I deactivate it?
No, firewall shouldn't be preventing this.

partition manager -> not available in 32 bit -> need to use 64 bit -> this should be included in 32 bit asap
It takes up a ton of space. The package manager will allow the installation of a GUI partition manager.

samba -> how do I start it? smbd and nmbd are not working
Please search forum for cifs.
EDIT: I should have scrolled down before posting. Read above post for cifs.

desktop sharing -> not available?
Krfb or rdesktop are some available choices. I used to have Krfb in the 32bit repo (before the package manager was introduced.) Either way i have successfully used rdesktop.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

@Fistandantilus
"For desktop sharing I need the other way around I need to access Porteus from a windows machine :)"
x11vnc should be ok. you can compile latest version from sources with help of the SlackBuilds script. download and unpack this archive:
http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/13.3 ... vnc.tar.gz
then put sources to unpacked folder:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projec ... .12.tar.gz
and launch Slackbuild script.
your package will be generated in /tmp folder so you can convert it to xzm module with 'tgz2xzm' utility.
put it in your /porteus/modules folder and activate. GUI menu can be found in Kmenu/LXDE menu -> Internet section.

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

@Fistandantilus,

You can also use TeamViewer.

1) Download this
2) Activate it
3) Run it via terminal with teamviewer6 command.

It is a modified version, It can be run from any accounts (even root account)

I am lazy to make a shortcut of TeamViewer with its icon... ;)

Cheers!

Thanks to all.

Finally I got everything working.

samba: I am using the slax module 3.4.4 -> firewall was preventing it from working at the beginning

ping: also firewall has caused the problems

desktop sharing: teamviewer is working, I did not got x11vnc working (maybe dueto missing knowledge :D )

Next step is to test java. If that is working I have all functionality I have had with my last slax release.

Thx

Java could be added thru slackyd. In command line:
bash-4.1# slackyd -u
bash-4.1# slackyd -g jre

Searching jre: found 1 package.

jre-6u25-i586-1.txz [from slackware]

Find the package in /var/slackyd and right click on it to txz2xzm.
