Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

@ fulalas Why I'm not surprised to get that kind of reply.. However, you do already know what you had to add or change to make the module nearly as good as the one shipped with 3.2.2. And even more has to be done / changed in the module. (hint: Thunar (root) .desktop file / custom actions) It's not ...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

^
completely out of context
a) 85MB single app
b) 20 vs 40 MB XFCE-DE module
What is the point of stripping down a module to the bone
and the sentence continued with:
...if you have to add MB's of stuff afterwards to make it work
like it did before? ;)

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Hello raja Donald, Have you tried SMPlayer front end for DVD playing? I did, for testing purpose. The DVD-menu is displayed but not clickable.(chapters/extras etc.) but more important: XFCE is GTK based and smplayer will pull in a bunch of QT stuff.. so I ended up with a huge module (~ 85 MB)..unacc...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Well, solving this main bug was important because almost all DVDs are css (Content Scramble System) encrypted - so far so good.. :good: seems this limitation will remain While reading the links.. ..any hope to get a player in 4.0 comparable to gnome-mplayer went away. Maybe adding the gnome-mpv fron...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

@ ncmprhnsbl

Tested your module - The decryption (decss) part works.. :good:

Now we need some kind of navigation.
MPV immediately start playing the 1st episode of the DVD,
no DVD-menu to select the content of the DVD.

Any security flaws fixed in the 4.0 version?
I have not checked in detail which of the new files are already
built in in 4.0.

Mission, goals and mean: working toward a better porteus

Thanks for being with me trying to find out what's going on. It was an interesting task/weekend,wasn't it? I'm still unsure why it doesn't work as expected..lol May be that the new version has been stripped down a bit too much, but because a solution has been found i mark this point as being solved....
