Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

No, I haven't given up on Porteus. :) So I tried donald 's ipw2200-fw-3.1-fw-1.txz suggestion described here with my Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-k4*.iso and a Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-i586.iso both as a xzm module and with the .fw modules added to the /lib/firmware folder and rebooted. None of my attempts wo...

Using package installer on Porteus 5 on USB

You can search the bundles option in the menu for configured apps that can be added to it. Menu > Admin > Bundles. If brokenman updates USM this year it will make the next Release Candidate, 5.0 rc2, a whole lot easier to test. If you're looking for easier to use expanded functionality use a 4.0 rel...

I'm jealous gm4it. :( I tried the same thing with my Dell system and I still end up looping on the password prompt. What network security options are you using? Mine is set for WPA and WPA2 Personal.

To stop auto max brightness on booting

1. A .bat file is a DOS command script. This is Linux. 2. A save changes file is a .dat file. porteussave.dat 3. The .dat file is created by Porteus in the /changes directory and used after the 1st reboot. 4. If only some things are saved implies your .dat file is full. 5. How big is your .dat file?...

Also, I wanted to understand the terminology - does 5.0 rc means it is in development or testing phase yet? Not a stable version?
Yes. :happy62:

rc => Release Candidate as in "running for office" but not there yet.

tar2xzm

I have downloaded a tar.xz file, extracted the .tar file but find I have no way to convert it to a .xzm file!!

Its a Zoom file to run a Zoom Client on Linux.

Suggestions?

:hmmm: Extract the .tar files to a directory then dir2xzm it to a xzm file. I'll let you know if that works.

I have Porteus 5 with changes saved using the .bat file method.
Describe your .bat file method. Who wrote it, how is it run, when is it run. Post the contents of the file also would be helpful.

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

I think the theories would lessen if all the writers would work in the hospitals where the patients are dying or morgues where the remains are being examined and help it would help them better determine the situations behind the virus. Because the doctors and nurses and lab techs just don't have the...

Using package installer on Porteus 5 on USB

USM on 5.0 rc1 is not functional. It hasn't been upgraded to support the Slackware release 5.0 is built upon. Maybe when 5.0 rc2 is released it will be supported.

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

I copied the 001-003 files from Porteus 4.0 to the 3.0.1 Modules folder, so the initrd and kernel files are not overlaid by newer files when booting. Unfortunately it didn't boot. I removed the 003 file and it still wouldn't boot. Both hung with a "/etc/rc.d/rc.S: line 59: /etc/profile.d/porteus.sh:...

If your Acer is a 486 machine try slax 7.0.8 MarktheFloot. I just tried it on an old 586 Dell notebook and it works with working wifi too. :Yahoo!:

Booting Porteus from USB ("Security Boot Failed" error)

Well it starts with a USB drive formatted to FAT, mine is FAT32 but I believe exFAT would work also, then I believe if you install Porteus to it from a EFI machine the install will add an EFI folder to the USB drive. At least that's how it worked with the production 4.0 system. With the 5.0 test sys...
