Installation failed with error code '3'

didn't know that Arch can be frozen to a given date, but apparently that's the case!? yeah, tho it's not really the purpose, it's more for a temporary rollback in the case of package being broken, but there's nothing stopping us from using it as a pseudo non-rolling repo. one downside of this, if u...

Installation failed with error code '3'

and it offered me to download a couple of hundred MBs of updates. i should have explained better.. since the purpose of using the frozen repos is to avoid such an update.. in your case since you're using 20.12.26 ISO, the idea would be to edit the frozen repo mirrorlists to point to that date, that...

Installation failed with error code '3'

i strongly recommend this: added /etc/pacman.d/archive-mirror and archive-mirror-arch mirror links for "frozen" archive of the repos set to the date of the build.. to use, backup the standard mirrorlists and rename them(archive-mirror and archive-mirror-arch) to mirror and mirror-arch. this is an ea...

Installation failed with error code '3'

Your workaround formally works: I have kept the boot folder replacing only initrd.xz and vmlinuz. Booting from a new USB now gives me 1) the same boot menu from the v5.0rc2, where I've noticed if I select "Text mode", it's ignored and, 2) after a quick succession of console messages (something abou...

Could not acquire name on session bus - Porteus 4.0 x86_64

have .Xauthority sitting in my /home/guest/ folder, how it is possible that xauth cannot read it? Also with the file /var/run/slim.auth it does exist, but I do not know why xauth cannot see it. that's an old minor bug, i think, can't remember what it's about, pretty sure that's not a problem ... th...

Could not acquire name on session bus - Porteus 4.0 x86_64

i presume you are using a save.dat to preserve your changes? or some other method? whatever is causing the problem will be in that. the simplist fix is to lose those changes and start again. as for what caused the problem, my guess is that "switch users" is incompatible with slim(simple login manage...

Installation failed with error code '3'

i think this is a problem relating to newer kernels, the installer and syslinux.. to confirm this, try to install standard porteus-4.0 using the same host system ie. the one with the 5.4.57-porteus kernel that you used.. if i'm right that should fail too.. (because i think the nemesis boot folder is...

Browser update

Is that an issue? not really, because "ignoring previous --max-args value" does no harm.. have seen this in a lot of scripts recently, i guess that with some recent xargs update 'the rules' have been tightened around this... and technically, a warning is not an error :) i will get around to cleanin...

Porteus Kernel Builder

we's a bit offtopic... It doesn't begin with "#!/bin/sh". well, technically #!/bin/sh is a 'shell' script, presumably able to handle whatever shell you're using.. but anyway: Neofetch supports almost 150 different operating systems. From Linux to Windows, all the way to more obscure operating system...

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

The picture is a bit hard to see. need to put your specs on, Ed? :D relevant line is: "Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88W8897 [AVASTAR] 802.11ac Wireless" a bit of looking around suggests it should be supported in the kernel with mwifiex_pcie ... just a guess, but probably missi...
