Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

Hi,

I like Porteus v1.2 and use it for my everyday work.

But is it correct that Porteus 32bit uses Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.0, while http://porteus.org/info/features.html states
The 32-bit Standard edition includes KDE 3.5.13 (Trinity)
?

Re: Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

I can forward a request to tlaronde as for supporting UTF-8 on next builds of kerTeX. I had heard of vine linux a few years ago on distrowatch. Now, it seems that Berry Linux based on Fedora is a specialized distro for Japanese users, I don't know of others at this time. UTF-8 support only? will co...

Re: Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

@kaz would you mind testing KerTeX module(s) for porteus? Tonio, thank you for your suggestion. I have installed KerTeX for porteus. It works almost perfectly on my TeX document, but, as I expected, Japanese characters cannot be shown in the output. As far as I know, Japanese TeX documents can be h...

Re: Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

My favourite distros are: 1. FreeBSD: I like its "Power to Serve", and use it to for the Internet connection server, where DNS server, Squid, DHCP server, UUCP and so on run. 2. Arch Linux: I like it that it can be easily kept updated with its pacman. I use it for an application server where various...

Re: VLC Player (VideoLan)

VLC is in official repo now. I am afraid VLC being in official repo is only the case for 64bit, and not for 32bit. I use 32bit Porteus, and after some trial and error, I have found the easiest way to use VLC with 32bit Porteus is: (1) Install qt-4.7.0_7abde40 using Porteus Package Manager. (2) Get ...
