Post#1 by retfar » 27 Jul 2011, 09:19

Hi

Yes. I have searched google config files etc. It's just annoying having to shutdown a term to stop a process like ping.
Having to manually setup the wifi with ndiswrapper ifconfig iwconfig but that's another problem. Now the cpu is maxed out the system continues to become unstable. firefox should not use 90% of cpu.
The only change was installing irssi client. Oh well.

I'm guessing you are saving your changes, either with a save.dat or to a directory on a posix-compatible partition. To double check, please boot into 'Always Fresh' mode and check it again. If the issue still presents, try in 'Always Fresh' mode with any modules you've added to /porteus/modules moved to another location instead.

I'm guessing one of your config files in the save.dat (or from a module) is overwriting the config for your terminal -- which terminal are you using, and which edition of Porteus, 32 or 64-bit?

If you can track down the problem file, you should be able to override it and any other versions that are inserted by your saved changes or extra modules, by putting a working copy of the config file in /porteus/rootcopy/'path/to/.config'
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

This was stupid on my part after of hours looking for term config files and searching google it was the keys sticking.
This is how I fixed it, got mad pressed ctrl and hit the c and z keys really hard.
Sorry that I wasted anyone's time.

No worries! I've wasted more of my time (ok, yes, and the time of others too) on sillier things than that ;)
