Any way to ditch Firefox?

Sure, just use the Browser Selection and Update Tool. Then remake your CD or boot the ISO with grub2 and boot parms.

dd command

Ok, my hard drive is failing on my netbook and I am trying to copy it to a another, used, hard drive. Do I need to fdisk the used hard drive before running the dd copy to it?

Code: Select all

Porteus Installation to RAM

RAM is cleared everything the laptop is rebooted or simply turned off. You don't install Porteus to RAM you simply run it from the CD and it executes in RAM.

Some programs request and doubts

A free basic compiler. Interesting.

CHROME and FIREFOX latest versions

Porteus Updater - ERROR An internet connection is required

I just checked and my firewall is set to Disable when booting, so that explains that. I don't remember if that was a default or I disabled it at some point.
