Installed Porteus and can not boot ANYTHING from HDD at all

What "bootable USB" did you have? Where did you get it? How was it made bootable? I suppose you didn't backup yo...

The entry in /etc/rc.d/rc.local is executed once and only once when the system boots. The entry in /etc/xdg/autostart is executed every time X comes up. :shock: Amazing the stuff I don't know.

Porteus 5.0rc2 touchpad autostart changes overridden

<r>Thank you <B><s>[b]</s>babam<e>[/b]</e></B>. <E>:good:</E> <br/> <br/> It is interesting to note that replacing the /etc/xdg/autostart file with an entry in /etc/rc.d/rc.local didn't help.

TOTAL NEWBIE Limited Tech with Linux - wanting to remove Porteus

I have Windows 10 on a BIOS based Acer netbook, so no EFI is not required. Not sure if GPT partitioning is required.

I found the gsettings' hibernate option works better than suspend for my battery when the lid is closed.

Porteus 5.0rc2 touchpad autostart changes overridden

For my notebook's touchpad I have a script that customizes some of the settings. In /etc/xdg/autostart I have a desktop file which runs the script. (the same desktop and script files from Porteus 4.0) The script runs because the result of a syndaemon command in it are evident but the synclient setti...

Porteus 5.0rc2 /var/log/messages

I have entries in my /var/log/messages file going back to August. I don't recall this problem in 4.0. I thought there was a command in the shutdown process to trim them. Is there a command to trim the size of the 5.0rc2 files in /var/log/? :%)
