Re: The future of Porteus

Thank God.....Please stay with Slackware, brokenman. This is the reason I became a Porteus user, Slackware
in a compact, wonderfully useful, live CD distribution.
THANKS...

Re: Wishlist for porteus 3.1

For next version, be it 4.0 or whatever... I really miss LXDE. I know it has already been covered (LXDE is maintained by just one person and has "no future"), but Porteus really shines with LXDE and is super fast in older hardware. I think it would be worth it to put out LXDE flavors of Porteus whil...

@Claude : Maybe you should not write solved. Usually fanthom pursues until full resolution of the problem when possible. But that is your choice. Hi francois, as you can see this is now solved thanks to sunnysideofthesun. You might want to suggest including this solution in the docs, as I'm sure ma...

Re: [SOLVED] FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for gues

Have you actually tried doing this with Porteus ver. 3.1 (current)? Yes, I have tried it on virtual machine booting from iso, then selecting text mode in menu (without editing any .cfg file, just as it is). Login guest, password guest, startx -> xfce without network manager. Reboot, text mode, logi...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

For the record: One of the most important reasons I would like to first boot into a non-privileged user and then start X windows from there is that I usually have a few non-privileged user accounts and would like each to be able to access X windows normally and have full functionality. Again, this w...

OK, you're right. I'll remove it as to give fanthom the chance to read the later posts and decide if he wants to pursue this further. Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for gues

Humble 2 cents from someone who does only googling and reading posts from 2012 without understanding what it's all about, i.e. me. While you're waiting for a fix, you may load graphical interface from init 3 level with logged guest with startxfce4 --with-ck-launch command instead of startx . This w...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

i'm not 100% sure but i think its dbus/polkit related. when startx is used then guest session does not start necessary services and guest cant have privileges to manage networking. use two methods and compare services which are started (ps aux). http://pastebin.com/PGZXCU0v I don't have enough know...

Re: libquadmath.so.0 missing in XFCE v. 3.1

Well, thanks to fanthom and sunnysideofthesun (who have replied to this question in other threads) I've learned that I can manually download the necessary updates to a distribution here http://dl.porteus.org/i486/testing/updates/
Don't know how I missed it the first time around. So it's all good now.

Re: Why not provide update files along with original ISO's?

not many users burn porteus on optical media nowadays. you could download updates manually from http://dl.porteus.org/i486/testing/updates/ -> run make-iso.sh script -> burn new porteus.iso on a CD Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for (also pointed out today by another user in my other thr...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

text mode operates in runlevel 3 while gui in runlevel 4. different scripts (and cheatcodes) operates in each runlevel. if you really need to boot into text mode first then instead of 'startx' run 'init 4' command. Hi, I get the following when running 'init 4' from user guest: guest@porteus:~$ init...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

I experimented a bit and discovered a couple of things: 1) I tried out with MATE and KDE, and I experienced exactly the same problem, so it is not XFCE-related. 2) The problem disappears when I boot directly into level 4 (graphical interface). My preference has always been to boot into level 3 (chea...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

To do it manually, for your platform you'd had to download from here http://dl.porteus.org/i486/testing/updates/ all modules which are related to your system (core, xorg and xfce) and then insert them into your porteus iso to directory where all other .xzm modules reside (/porteus/base). The tools ...

Re: FAA In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

I do not know if the correction to your problem is available in the porteus updates. To get the updates: Panel menu > system settings > porteus updates (of something of the sort). 8) As I said, I cannot use the update function (by intent). I boot porteus from cdrom with no magic folders (no changes...

Re: In XFCE 3.1, "networking disabled" for guest

Could it be that there was an update to fix this and it was not provided at the archive along with the original ISO? I downloaded from http://dl.porteus.org/i486/current/ Unfortunately, I cannot utilize the update function, so I need to do this manually. It would be great if someone in the know woul...
