Re: HOWTO make a "real" installation of Porteus to harddisk

Why involve Puppy Linux? If you want to install Porteus to hard drive: Do it as I wrote in my first post in this thread. Or use Slack-Installer as I said in my second post.

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

Wifi is working now. Sorry if I misled you in any way. I don't know what was wrong yesterday.

Excellent work! Very useful.

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

I have no good news I'm afraid. Now I can't even create a new ISO-file. This is what the log (kiosk.log) shows: ./make-kiosk-dialog: line 109: trap: 255: invalid signal specification ./make-kiosk-dialog: line 140: [: -le: unary operator expected cp: cannot stat `/mnt/kiosk/*': No such file or direct...

Re: HOWTO make a "real" installation of Porteus to harddisk

Yes. You will have to manually edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg and NOT run update-grub after that. Or you should really edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom and run update-grub (but that is a little more complicated). The boot lines for Porteus in Grub 2 (/boot/grub/grub.cfg) should look like this: menuentry 'Porteu...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

Ok, thanks, but I think I will wait for the new release. One or two days or...?

Btw: Can you please tell which live scripts (Tomas M?) you used to turn Slackware 14.0 into a live system?

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

Now I have tried your Kiosk Wizard too. A new ISO is created without problems but while running "my" Kiosk system from USB I could not get my Wifi to work nor could I find a way to restart or poweroff the computer. Had to use the power switch.

Wifi: I get no chance to connect manually either.

Hi,

I have tried your Kiosk CD/ISO. Running it from USB right now. No bugs. Everything just works.

Thanks!

Re: HOWTO make a "real" installation of Porteus to harddisk

Hi wread, I came to think of that I already have a suitable script - slack-installer . It is made by Thomas Schoenhuetl <pilleus.pulcher@arcor.de>. No credit goes to me. I have only made some cosmetic changes to the script. If you want to use the script do this: 1. Start up Porteus live (from the CD...

Re: HOWTO make a "real" installation of Porteus to harddisk

Yes, of course I have tried this install method myself. Many times. Not only for Porteus. It works. I haven't tried Porteus special scripts though. I installed slapt-get and Gslapt instead. I even upgraded the system to Slackware 14.0. No problems. Re. GRUB and initrd: If it doesn't work for you you...

I have noticed that some members are looking for a way to make a "real" installation of Porteus to harddisk. This is how it can be done manually. (This instruction works for many other Linux systems too). Conditions : You must already have one Linux system installed on your computer and use GRUB as ...
