Re: Porteus ARM (ARMedSlack) Fork ?

I received my MITX-6500 from Habey. Hope I did not zap it already admiring it (Static)? I am uploading the CD that came with it. Has tools and manuals for ARM QT, Ubuntu-Lucid, Android. Anyone can email me at wildegeist[AT]gmail[DOT]com and I will add you to the "Share" thing in Google Drive. My goa...

Re: Porteus ARM (ARMedSlack) Fork ?

Thanks for the information!

I should have the MITX 6500 in the mail the 26th.

Just slapped a nice Slackware64 Current on the Acer Extensa.

May the Source be with us all!

It will all work, with a little work.

Cheers!

Re: Porteus Rasberry Pi?

I think the thing your working on is this: The SoC is a Broadcom BCM2835. This contains an ARM1176JZFS, with floating point, running at 700Mhz, and a Videocore 4 GPU. The GPU is capable of BluRay quality playback, using H.264 at 40MBits/s. It has a fast 3D core accessed using the supplied OpenGL ES2...

Porteus ARM (ARMedSlack) Fork ?

Hey all, I am currently geting a new Habey MITX 6500 Sample sent to me. I have a project in mind to use the ARM with a Slackware and have an x86 box plugged in running Slackware to do Eclipse IDE and other x86 type stuff (Blender, GIMP, Inkscape). I will bang my head until it hurts to have both Slac...

Re: Android and smart phones.

I was looking at QEMU and other emulators to get a Virtual Machine to run on ARM. I am not good enough to try to Port Virtual Box to ARM for instance. I think the easiest way to get Porteus to work on ARM is to get involved with SlackedARM ( I think that is the Slackware for ARM Project ). There is ...

Porteus ARM from ARMedSlack for The Future!

I have been reading up on where computers are headed, and I think ARM is an important niche to stay on top of. I am not sure what all is entailed, but I do have a love for Porteus, and would like to be with Porteus as She grows. Reading some papers written some time ago, from prophets and sages in t...

Re: To get the most out of Porteus on MacBook Pro HD Install

Yea, 2 Hours! I had to reboot holding that Option Key and hope it would eventually catch the memory. The "hole" next my optical drive is some kind of key hole they say, to lock the computer. I thought so too that it was a manual eject thing, and tried the paper clip, staple, then graduated to an ice...

Re: To get the most out of Porteus on MacBook Pro HD Install

I am slowly getting there. I used a tool as suggested on the mini-chat, but on reboot it was not saved. Its my own malfunction. Everything here is very different from what I am used to. There is a learning curve for me. Sorry, I can not remember the name of this & that yet, all this module stuff and...

To get the most out of Porteus on MacBook Pro HD Install

Hey there, This is embarrassing and exciting at the same time. I am (was) all into this FreeBSD thing, and got into testing PC-BSD since I have unique issues. But today it was a total failure. And my HD is so corrupted, not a thing I have with a built in wifi tool would boot. I only have wifi access...

MacBook Pro (Mid 2009) 15" 4G Vbox & HD (x64 v1.1 - v1.2rc)

I learned a lot trying out Porteus! Fantistic marvel! First off, it ran tits on my HD as a Live CD over the natural OS X HFS scheme. Very fast. The v1.1 inspired me to try to figure out how to do a full HD install with Porteus. More later. I soon found the Porteus v1.2rc and frantically downloaded e...

Re: Screen or mouse?

On my MacBook, I had exactly the same thing happen trying to run Arch Bang 2011.11 . Worse than that, if I used less than three fingers, it acted as a right click, and the curser would land on the INSTALL button. So it was spooky trying to log out. Actually I opted to just crash (running live). I no...
