@brokenman - please make sure that your cleanup script for 002-xorg removes modesetting driver, it should be in /usr/lib/xorg/drivers
@fanthom : deleting the modesetting driver does indeed make the nouveau driver work

Re: Porteus-v1.0-rc1-x86 ready for testing

I tried the new release, using the from_iso cheatcode so I don't have to unpack the iso... the nouveau driver is not working, but I noticed it's blacklisted for now, so I added the rootcopy cheatcode, and copied the BLACKLIST-nouveau.conf to the appropriate place and commented out the nouveau line. ...

rootcopy vss from_iso

when using the from_iso cheatcode, i.e. booting from a ISO file on usb, it's impossible to put files inside the ISO for copying onto the root filesystem. I would like to use the following layout on my removable media: \boot\grub\grub.cfg \porteus\initrd.xz \porteus\vmlinuz \porteus\porteus-1.0-XXX.i...

Porteus-v1.0-beta-i486 coming soon

I found the 32 bit version beta on your site :-) It seems to works fine. actually, I'm using it right now... I used the from_iso cheatcode without the device name, as I asked some time ago, and it works as expected. :Yahoo!: the nouveau driver is working without any problem on my machine. great work.

Re: porteus 32bit alpha testers required

works for me. nVidia card works fine too. I tried only kde, firefox (with proxy). I tried the "from_iso" cheatcode, with only "grub, porteus.iso, initrd.lz, vmlinuz" on USB-stick, and this works fine now. btw: is there a possibility to combine the "from_iso" with other modules not inside the iso? it...
