@Rava
Try package for altlinux or ubuntu, for opensuse it doesn't work here.
I try the altlinux one. Hopefully I can also use GraphicsMagick-1.3.28-x86_64-1_slonly.txz instead of the imagemagick-6.9.9_40-x86_64-2.txz dependency.

@tome I tried creating a module out of a XaraLX-0.7r1785-11.93 rpm, but so far that fails. The only dependency seemingly there is is an older version of libpng, so I made a libpng12-1.2.57-4.x86_64.xzm But trying to run xaralx fails: guest@porteus:~$ XaraLX XaraLX: relocation error: XaraLX: symbol _...

Interesting technique, is it possible to make screenshots that demonstrate the changes? I came across this interesting video on youtube (to add above the last line of... /etc/fonts/local.conf)... @ https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=linux+font+rendering Sadly, the URL you gave is a search,...

Copy Audio CD with freedb info without Internet

I want to copy / convert some audio CDs (that's legal in my country as long as I don't break any copy protection, but audio-CDs don't have any) The issue: The PCs that should copy the CDs have no internet access. The one Porteus PC that has access has no CD drive. So I need a solution that lets me d...

Donald, you rock! Thank you very much!

Is there a better way than GLX-Gears to compare the performance of some of my NVidia systems with and without that driver? What do you folks think of GL Mark 2?

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

Why won't swapon (or Porteus?) assign the priority as I told it to? Why has the newly added swapfile priority of -3 instead of -10? And what difference does it make? :%) What runs faster that way? And how much faster? :crazy: On slow machines, and it is a slow one, you try to get everything as high...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

System: Porteus 4.0rc4 i586. Could be that this issue is valid for rc5 as well, so far have not managed to update my currently only used i586 (32 bit only) machine to rc5. Since the swap partition on my Samsung Q40 (i586 machine, sadly no x86-64 on that one) is too small, and I don't want to change ...

As I said in the first post. > I had it running in porteus 3.2.2 (kernel 4.9) - XFCE,KDE and LXDE < ;) Maybe put that at the beginning of the post, and not into the last line. For which kernel a GPU driver is compiled for is the main info, aside from the GPU driver version, IMHO. I can compile the ...

nvidia-304.137-x86_64

UPDATE ....If your PC has little RAM... Same driver; built without the 32 Bit libraries. The help- and man files were not stripped off. Much smaller module ~ 30MB, the "full" module is ~ 55MB in size. http://filehorst.de/d/cBlrBoGk For which Kernel is this driver compiled for? I would be happy to h...

xmahjongg 3.7 x86_64

Thanks Rava . :) How does your version differ from this one: Love Porteus - is there a mahjong package I can install? (Post by donald #62837) Good question. I only saw the 32Bit upload at the end of the thread. I added the 3 files as described above. Since I not downloaded donald's version I cannot...

Since you could not start it via the GUI by just doing just a tgz2xzm (it lacked any usr/share/applications .desktop file), I added these files: -rw-r--r-- 1 root 135 2018-03-30 15:31 ./usr/share/applications/xmahjongg.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root 3911 2018-03-30 15:31 ./usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/a...

runit as init with Porteus

You can check ruinit out at http://www.smarden.org/runit which also has links to methods for various distros including Slackware. Porteus is a bit different because of the live system and needs tweaking to get going. But Void linux would show you the layout and how things work, better than I can ex...
