Re: install to a USB stick with MultiSystem

fanthom, A user can edit the configuration files using Multisystem sure, but because it targets users who prefer the 'point and click' or 'click and drag' method of doing things it might seem a bit beyond the scope or willingness of a Multisystem user to "point (the) bootloader to unpack vmlinuz" wh...

Re: Porteus installation fails with error code '4' on an Eee

fanthom, Ok I tried the new bootloader, and it still exits with the same error code as described in my original post. At this time I am deciding to give up on Porteus because I just don't have time to help bug test the problems with getting the installation process to work. I might come back and che...

Re: Porteus installation fails with error code '4' on an Eee

fanthom "...it wont touch bootloaders which are installed to a partition" I think that is what I need it to do because I'm trying to install it to my /mnt/sda3 partition. In other words I'm trying to get Porteus to be the OS that boots up natively from the hard drive when the computer starts. I shou...

Re: Porteus installation fails with error code '4' on an Eee

EdP Please note that the same partition that you are referring to had Bodhi Linux installed on it, and the computer was booting from that partition, and before that it had other distro's installed and was booting up just fine from that same /dev/sda6 partition with those installed as well. I suspect...

Porteus installation fails with error code '4' on an EeePC.

Steps I followed during installation: 1.) Burned Porteus v2.0 64bit to a CD (No errors here, and the desktop booted fine from this disk, note the EeePC has no CD or DVD drive internal/external or otherwise). 2.) Rebooted the desktop into Porteus (Looks great here) 3.) Mounted a USB stick. 4.) Used ...

Re: install to a USB stick with MultiSystem

Currently installing Proteus v2.0 64bit does not work in Multisystem. Porteus will show up as a menu item in the window that you see when your installing OS's to the USB stick, but when you try to boot from the stick Proteus will not be listed as a menu entry in grub, nor will the grub.cfg file be u...
