Re: An alternative "changes" cheat code

Give the user a short timeout during reboot, with a chance to bailout from saving changes to disk. hmmm.. but user would have to provide a path where changes would be stored, then cleanup would have to do rw/posix test, etc... i dont want to make shutdown slower (after my last tweaks it's a breeze)...

Re: Thomas's plans about Slax project

Yesterday I got an 8 GB sandisk usb in the post. I paid $5 for it... A pint at a pub here, costs me $12-15...I seriously think time should be spent on other issues than reducing the size a 50-100 mb. Anyone owning a system that can run kde4 ok, can afford an 8gb usb... If 50 mb makes it run noticeab...

Re: An alternative "changes" cheat code

Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

I've done what i hope is my last version of that cheat code variaton of changes: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9BJM4grHN0xenVRMW1KUFlMUUE/edit It seems to be working well and working on it brought an idea to me... Modularization of most cheat codes often works well enough as a stand alone module,...

Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

Looks really good that ram implementation and the explanation of it was very clear. Startup: I thought all scripts in the rc.d-folder were supposively executed, but apparently not. At least I couldn't get it right. I just looked into a couple of my old slax modules. I see that I have put them into s...

Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

Excellent ! I like your interpretation Good to hear you guys are open for further tweaks and mods. I believe that is the best way to keep an upgoing forum..Those rammods was maybe of more value back in the days when ram was expensive. Did propose it on another distro back then, but better late then ...

@Thor, Unfortunately, we cannot provide module section. This feature is highly requested and appreciated by users. We're a community that don't make any money. Nothing.

Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

[quote="brokenman"] The installer (from memory) checks for /mnt/live/porteus/modules which is a symlink to the source drive of porteus. If you're using copy2ram then obvisouly this symlink won't be useful. I'll look at the editing the installer to accommodate for this situation. Appreciate your feed...

Re: Porteus-1.2 feedback

Very fine and well working distro. But I'll post some minor issues as I run into them. After 2 metal plates installed into my body, I figured it was time for a life style change. So less desktop sitting, more activity and Windows as OS to read the newspapers and to not get too engaged to the PC :D. ...
