@brokenman
'from_dev=' cheatcode functionality is changed in Porteus-1.1. changelog says:

Code: Select all

- tweaked 'from_dir=' cheatcode so it's allowed to keep porteus data in any dir: /mnt/sdb1/64 instead of /mnt/sdb1/64/porteus
be aware that now you need to provide full path to .sgn file, so when you put porteus data in /mnt/sda1/64/porteus, then you need to use "from_dir=/64/porteus" cheatcode (crashman and Kriss request)
i guess that correct chetcode for your case will be:
'from_dir=/os/porteus-dev/porteus'
(full path to *.sgn file)

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

Happy that you asked the question brokenman. This way I didn't have to do it. :)
Here is my new menu.lst for porteus 32bit v. 1.0 rc1

Code: Select all
