Releases

If you check the release dates of 3.1 and 3.2.2 and 4.0 here: Announcements you will see that Porteus is not an annual system and only based on the current release of Slackware at the time of the Porteus release. That being said the Admin is working on a new release and the only thing that can be s...

Savefile resizing suggestion

What happens if you use your USB drive in a system with another flash drive or no hard drive? sdb1 won't work. Personally I think the ext2-4 formats were fine when flash drives were 2 GB, 4GB and even 8GB but allocating 60GB or 120GB to ext4 that is unreadable by TVs, car stereos, Windows systems, c...

:lol: Amazing what you can get at garage sales nanZor.

When you backup your save.dat file save it as porteussave.dat.xzm. Then you can boot in Always Fresh mode and Activate it to recover your changes. ;)

Savefile resizing suggestion

The savedat file is useful and a great tool but it has to be watched because if it gets too big you can loose everything . My initial file was 256MB then I had it as 320MB then 512MB and at one point 1GB. It's now down to 320MB again with 32% used. A couple of things to consider; 1. backup the saved...

porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg ignores changes

The new porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file was a bad idea. It complicates cheatcode changes. Adding a cheatcode to it may require removing a cheatcode from the porteus.cfg file, so instead of making one change you have to make two changes. Not a good idea for newbies.

IMO

Porteus 4.0 not booting in UEFI mode SOLVED

I think one of the secrets to booting Porteus flash drives on EFI systems is creating a GPT partition table from the MBR file. I believe it can be done with GParted and I think there is a build_gpt-fm_mbr command to do it somewhere. These might help: How to upgrade to UEFI Secure Boot Uefi and porte...

Better to change just one file, /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg, rather than have to change two. :happy62:

I'm confused. So where did you specify the location of the porteussave.dat file and with what parms??
