What kind of wallpaper you want Porteus to have set by default?

To counteract your manipulation of the statistics, What manipulation? Did you not read this: (and even when we add up all votes, it is still dark images 7 votes, bright images 6 votes) I feel compelled to cast a vote after all. ..so please count again. No thanks, I waited long enough. Feel free to ...

What kind of wallpaper you want Porteus to have set by default?

I deem the pool to have run long enough. I sum it up. The moment I captured: https://abload.de/img/screenshot_2022-04-08dsjk7.png I only count votes that have at least 2 persons voted for them. Dark images have 6 votes , bright images have 5. (and even when we add up all votes, it is still dark imag...

Do i need to delete windows to run porteus?

To create a new partition on your hard drive, you can either use Windows to create the partition and then use Linux to change the partition type and format it into a Linux file system, or use Porteus on USB and run gparted (Main menu / system / gparted ) But you have to run Porteus in the mode where...

Just FYI, npm is by default not part of Porteus.

Convert favorites from *.desktop to *.url for MS Windows on Ntfs

The file name conversion one-liner is a neat trick, thanks for finding it. Did you leave out all upper case accented characters and all German Umlauts on purpose? The umlauts are ÄÖÜäöü and also ß. (Not sure your ä is the same as the German Umlaut ä, in the font I use both look the same) Also, the u...

Change from Porteus 4.0 to Porteus 5.0

Even after you deactivate the module? Even so. I presume Porteus 4.0 uses an older GLIBC - that is the main C GNU library. Usually a new system can run older software because a newer GLIBC often is able to handle requests asking for an older GLIBC … in my case, I run 5.0rc3 and still use a very out...

Porteus-v5.0rc3 x86_64 bug reports

I haven't been able to set the clock so that it stays after reboot or shutdown. Maybe this helps. Run in a terminal as root (use "su -" to go into root mode or use the "root terminal" entry in Main menu / System) and then use it like so: date MMddhhmmYY.ss hwclock --systohc I have no clue what the ...

vesamenu.c32 not a com32r image

Make the whole drive FAT32, that's what I do for mine. Or create a FAT32 as 1st partition and a small 2nd partition as ext2 (without journaling!) as 2nd, then you can use the UUID cheatcodes and have a rootcopy folder. Or just use that partition for Linux files, because Windóws is unable to see any...

Porteus-v5.0rc3 x86_64 bug reports

The browser tool won't install Firefox; it downloads update-firefox-live, announces that "work will be done in /tmp", and freezes. Could you try use a Linux filesystem instead of /tmp ? Like /mnt/sda3 when sda3 is e.g. ext3, ext4, reiserfs - not VFAT or NTFS. Could be insufficient free space but th...
