need download of Porteus-Kiosk-3.6.0-i486.iso

Normally 32bit systems run on 64bit hardware. 64bit systems will not run on 32bit hardware.

Hardware/software booting problems usually revolve around video drivers, USB drivers and hard drive drivers.

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Ed_P why did you omit the Part of the quote donald added in his reply? Did you miss the smilie? I was kidding/teasing/trying to be funny. Typing forum replies via Android sucks. Yes, and yet you keep doing it. :unknown: all what counts is if it works flawlessly, at least as good as in 3.2.2 Anyway,...

I'm just a user and not a developer,
so I don't care about the size of the module.
What is the point of stripping down a module to the bone

Uefi and porteus 3.0

A new way to convert MBR to GPT!! And no data lost. Linux is sooo much easier than this windows tool. Remember, talking about a system with files on it and maybe multiple partitions. How would Linux convert it? Gdisk? @n0ctilucient I think they are talking about a symlink on the real file system on...

I use Easy2Boot, which use to be RMPrepUSB.
Cool! Do you have a xzm for this app? :)
It's a Windows app, just like Rufus. Whether it would run under Wine I don't know.

@donald, don't get me wrong, but if in your opinion Porteus 4 has no advantage over 3.2.2, why don't you keep using 3.2.2 instead?
I think he already answered that.

Any security flaws fixed in the 4.0 version?

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Yep, and the issues have been reported but were obviously,silently ignored. I suspect overlooked or forgotten rather than ignored. ....and then we got MPV...which is not userfriendly by any means. 1) There is no UI to make/change settings - I would not expect a user to search for and learn the synt...

Uefi and porteus 3.0

:shock: The only thing that should be needed for a UEFI system is to disable the UEFI Secure Boot option.

I have a 3.2.2 flash drive that boots on my EFI system. The installer should be creating a hybrid MBR and a GPT directory table. I have not tried a 4.0 flash drive install.

Uefi and porteus 3.0

I suspect it's pretty much the same as posted here: UEFI Boot Confusion [Solved] All that should be needed is the following: Create your Porteus file online at: build.porteus.org Be sure to select 64bit and the UEFI enabled. Create one single FAT32 partition on the USB Put all the files from the ISO...

Mission, goals and mean: working toward a better porteus

@Ed_P, the idea is good, but most users don't know how to differentiate a DE issue from a generic Porteus issue. True, but most users don't know how to do this either. post these bugs (and how exactly we can reproduce them) :D Having a single topic with multiple unrelated problems makes it hard to ...

USM in both 32 and 64 bit v4.0, ends up showing LIBS.txt error, visit me after 6 hours. Enough has been talked about this error and repeats in the new version.
And the solution is the same one used to fix it in 3.2.2: Firefox Quantum (Post by Ed_P #62912)

Or a separate topic for each 4.0 DE needing tweaking.
