container file system advice

@rych I will explain how I store my changes "per application" in Porteus. Normally, settings are stored in a hidden file, a file starting with a point that does not show in the home screen of the user.

Nmap-7.92 for Porteus 5.0-x86_64

Porteus-v5.0x86_64_bugs reports

K3b Diskbrenner for Porteus 5.0

I had almost forgotten that there is also a Disk Brenner for Porteus. I downloaded K3b from the web and searched the necessary dependencies to get it up and running.
