Thank you Ahau!

Last January (01/18) he said he had "a few crippling coincidences sent me by the Universe. Not quite out of the woods yet, although things are beginning to look up." I haven't heard from him since. I hope he is well and returns.

Porteus to Micro-SD-CARD boot - easy!

If you have an Intel Computestick that runs Windows 10 you can add Porteus to it as a boot option by:

Install Grub2Win on the Intel Computestick's Windows system.
Copy the Porteus ISO to the Intel Computestick
Boot the Porteus ISO via Grub2Win.

Include mini-browser Netsurf in the future

Personally, I think most new users are over 50. People looking to try Linux, learn Linux, a friendly forum for help, and have a slow network so smaller downloads are preferred and minimal disk space.

Include mini-browser Netsurf in the future

Netsurf would not be the system's default browser, only a means to allow new users to access the forum and ask questions, and to download modules to get their system up and running. imo

And of course the main question users will ask is how do I upgrade to a different browser. :D

Heh, I couldn't log off either! Maybe if it was the latest version 3.8? :)
I initially used the 3.7 version from USM. But same problem with the 3.3 version.

Permanent Mount Point for save.dat possible?

Modify the changes= cheatcode to reference the UUID of the drive.

Something like changes=UUID:931F-8716/porteus/porteussave.dat

To find your drive's UUID try this in a terminal window as root:

blkid | grep -A1 "dev/sd"

Try??? I made no request for rudimentary (or any) advisement on how to use a web browser.
Since the thread's topic is "05-devel request" it appeared you were having a problem accessing it not some website security issue.

Try http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/kernel/ without the "s". It works for me.

USM system update - where did I go wrong?

Wow!! nanZor :shock: Execute usm with no operands and look at the options it displays. Note no usm -u system is listed. When you rebooted you saved all the changes you made because you use the changes=EXIT option and you did not press a key to prevent the saving when shutting down. To update Porteus...

How to move the .xzm to the modules folder

Hi RavenEXP , I don't use VirtualBox so I'm not sure how one can customize a Porteus system to run in it. When I boot my ISOs I use grub2 and with it I can pass boot parms to Porteus to include modules in a modules folder outside of the ISO. The parm, called a cheatcode, that I use is named extramod...
