I am however unable to download any new packages using USM. As long as Porteus is in rc1 (or rc2 stage) USM is not available. I really...

XEN and Porteus

Has anyone experience with Xen running as Hypervisor ?
You can get XEN e.g. here: https://xcp-ng.org/#easy-to-install
And an explanation how to set it up is here: https://www.linuxmuster.net/en/download-en/ (Example for using XEN and the build-for-School project linuxmuster.net)

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

Could it the the mess the USA is currently in is self-made? E.g. bad decisions in the recent past by the still governing USA administration? Lets ask the internet, shall we? https://abload.de/img/usa-unprepared-for-pagxjnm.png Oh, no preparedness for a pandemic since Mai of 2018. Who would have gues...

Porteus 5.0rc1 NVidia 340.108 driver for older hardware for kernel 5.4.30

I really like the statistic filehort provides when you use a free (as in beer) account… and upload files when logged in. As of now, 010-nvidia-340.108-k.5.4.30-porteus-v5.0-x86_64_rava.xzm has 8 downloads, while the version for older 5.4.19 kernel uploaded 03.03.2020 only has 7. Seems it was a good ...

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

What do you think of the Swedish approach? I think the Swedish people will not be that different from e.g. Germans. Unlike the Italians we all seem to not have a 2nd behaviour mode - an mode for catastrophes. In Germany, the weekend where Bavaria was the first to install restrictions (20th March) o...

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

^ Do they plan to reduce the measurements? At least in Germany it is obvious that even now too many people do not get it that a too steep curve is not only a potential danger to themselves but to others as well. Then again, most have been following the trend of the last decades: consume and ignore h...

Since from the time of posting the above and now there have been 3 downloads, but no comment in this thread. Therefore I presume all who downloaded it ran into no issue and it works for them as it works for me. Happy Easter, late Lailat Al-Bara'ah and/or late Passah to everyone who celebrates these,...

do you have Menu > Administration > Porteus Settings Centre?
Good find, Ed_P, I hardly use the PSC so I did not recall that detail.

In my case that is to be found as Menu > System > Porteus Settings Centre :)

[Solved] To stop auto max brightness on booting

Your scripts as I see, will also revert the brightness to the set parameter for each boot. This works. Though, I was looking for a way to "save" the brightness level across sessions, so that brightness set in one session is set again when I log on the next time. (Not the linux session, session in g...

[SOLVED]How to disable autologin and guest account?

I'm gonna stick with part of the solution, to just change the name of the guest account to something that I want. The directories may still show guest, that's okay for now. Be aware that I edited my above post, I forgot you need to edit more than just the two files I first mentioned. Please refer t...
