"ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/porteus/x86_64/kernel/porteus-4.16.8/" Using those files I instead got the message: This kernel reqiures an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i586 CPU. Unable to ...

windows 10 and security

I use Windows 10's Defender and never worried about viruses.

And when someone recommends something I always wonder what connection they have to what they are recommending.

However, when I then rebooted my PC complained that there was no bootable device,
Was the complaint from the BIOS, Windows' bootloader or from GRUB?

FOR EFI SYSTEMS: Ensure the first partition is of type FAT32. a) Copy the EFI, boot and porteus folders onto the FAT32 partition. You may create a ...

Splash Screen Stays Up

I understand. And to that end I have a system I named Always Fresh '. It's the Always Fresh menu plus the modules cheatcode and my /modules directory includes a module I make named mychanges.xzm. So to achieve your goal you need to: 1. Copy the Always Fresh menu in your "Splash Screen". Put it betwe...

That is, 'always fresh' does not just 'forget' what I do in the 'always fresh' session, but if forgets all my customization, correct?
Yup. :happy62:

1. I've tried new Porteus-LXDE-v4.0-x86_64.iso on two USB sticks, adding only login=root, and the first thing displayed after the desktop loads is an Error message box:

upgrade Porteus by overwriting and merging

Can I just copy the new system files over the old ones and expect it to boot, and most program modules to continue to work? A definite maybe . Or perhaps with some minimal edits, like transferring my cheatcodes to a new configuration file? That should work. And, if it doesn't work or boot, would I ...
