USM Unified Slackware Package Manager

Most of the USM distributions have multiple mirrors. Just because one mirror is bad doesn't mean they all are. Have you tried other mirrors?

Love Porteus - is there a mahjong package I can install?

Thank you n0ctilucient. :) But I recommend the OP use the USM xmahjong package. Less of a learning curve for a "new" user. :happy62:

Love Porteus - is there a mahjong package I can install?

I only see 2 apps, and one lib*, which may be a dependency of one of the other two. The xmahjong file works. :good: The kmahjong one failed: guest@porteus:~$ kmahjongg kmahjongg: error while loading shared libraries: libkdegamesprivate.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

That's what I have tested and I have not encountered the file problems you have raja, with files in /home/guest/ or on my NTFS partitions. What kind of file names are you using?

tp-link Smart Wi-Fi Plug

My son gave me a tp-link plug for Christmas. And interesting devise but it requires an Apple smart phone to set up. I don't have a smart phone or an Android system. But I do have Porteus. Does anyone have a compiled driver/app I can install that will allow me to access the smart plug and set it up? :)
