Simple install for users of non-Windows and non-Linux x86_64 systems

Zerotetration have you looked at the make_iso.sh script in the Porteus ISO's /porteus/ folder? It looks like it will do what you want. BTW I don't see any live files for OpenBSD here: https://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq4.html#Download. All appear to be only for installs. :( You should write to them and...

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

Simple install for users of non-Windows and non-Linux x86_64 systems

Well, based on my limited time here it appears the developer(s) develop their system to work with the systems they have access to and maybe to the systems the majority of their users have access to. Having limited resources and limited time to spend on their system I think they have created an impre...

Install Porteus on SD card

Unfortunately neko those parameters do not appear to be universally effective.

However, the new iso that can now boot from the micro SD card (with adapter), cannot boot from another SD card.

How do you move a firefox file to a module?

You add the changes= cheatcode to the boot menu's APPEND line. If your save.dat file is in the /porteus folder and you want changes saved while running you don't have to do anything, it's already there. If you want to save changes only when you exit or your save.dat file is not in the /porteus folde...

How do you move a firefox file to a module?

I've never installed Porteus to a hard drive so I'm not much help. Are you planning to boot different systems on the hard drive? If so what are you using as your boot loader?

How do you move a firefox file to a module?

My USB is FAT32. I found the Save File Manager, but unclear on things. First of all, what am I saving? Is this automatic afterwards before I turn off the computer? You're saving changes you make to the system. The wallpaper, Firefox bookmarks, desktop icons, etc. Plus changes the system makes, like...

How do you move a firefox file to a module?

Well, a CD is a non-writable media so adding anything to it is going to require a writable media. You can store your modules in a folder on your hard drive and when you reboot the CD manually reactive the ones you want to use. A better option is to use the CD to install Porteus to a writable media l...

How do you move a firefox file to a module?

Hello Linux.Blue . Welcome to Porteus. A couple of questions for you, what version of Porteus are you trying? And are you running it from a CD or a flash drive? Does it have Internet connectivity? Porteus is a modular system, it doesn't require installs. Rather one downloads a module which consists ...
