Re: Automount USB stick

Re: Automount USB stick

I am booting from CD.

But I need to be able to plug a USB stick in and have it auto mount it so a program I am running can use it. Is a little pain to have to manually mount the USB stick each time I plug it in. (and this has to be used by some people that aren't use to Linux)

Is there a way to get Porteus 2.0 to auto mount USB flash drives that are plugged in after boot up?

Can't seem to find a way to do this.

Thanks

Re: Will 64bit version run on 32bit computer ?

In short no a 64bit OS can not run on a 32bit computer. You can do it the other way around though a 32bit OS can run on a 64bit computer. So a 32bit OS will run on about anything a 64 bit OS has to run on 64bit hardware. The somewhat long answer A 64bit OS is going to use 64bit addressing which a 32...

Re: MacBook Air 3,1 Video Issue

That worked. I was able to install the Nvidia Driver in text mode and then using the above script pull the driver files into an module. I changed the boot config file to give me an option to boot with the standard driver or with the Nvidia driver depending on what type of Mac i am booting on. Thanks...

Re: MacBook Air 3,1 Video Issue

Thanks for the help. The VESA option gave the same results as the standard boot. I did have the VESA option a few time fail to boot correctly. It would stop a random places in on the boot screen (in phase 2 by the link you gave me). Since i wasn't able to get at any of the logs since i had to boot f...

Re: MacBook Air 3,1 Video Issue

Just a quick question. How do you get the logs from a system that has to boot from CD-ROM? Since you can't boot a MacBook Air from a USB stick (well without jumping through a lot of hoops).

[Solved] MacBook Air 3,1 Video Issue

I just got a MacBook Air 3,1 to play with and I just tried to boot the 32-bit Porteus CD on it. Everything looks fine until the Desktop starts to load. It looks like the video driver is messed up. You get red,green, and yellow wavy lines on about 3/4 of the screen. Has anyone else seen this before? ...
