CPU_frequency_scaling

@kultex The thing is that i somehow doubt the measurements in /proc/cpuinfo are correct. I remember that a grep -i mhz /proc/cpuinfo worked well in port 3.2.2 but not in 4.0. -- It showed only the max value and i was told that there have been some changes so this command doesn't show the correct val...

.dat persistent savefile running very slow

8 GB is by far sufficent. I assume you managed to put the chrome module into the modules folder,no? guest@porteus:~$ ls $PORTDIR/modules will show it. where did you store the save,dat file? It should be on the physical drive not somewhere in the live filesystem. EDIT Here is an Example of an usb thu...

Porteus v4.0 Installation failed on Linux.

Hi Captain One thing to try: unmount the (usb) device, after you copied all the files to it, and mount it manually at /mnt/sdXN (XN = whatever your device is e.g. sdb1) you may have to create this folder first if it isn't already there. When done, cd into /mnt/sdXN/boot and run the installer. (./Por...

how to backup restore

Personally, I do not backup individual files or folders related to the operating system.

Set it up, configure as you like it and then:
make an image of this partition or the whole disk.
Restoring those images has never failed.
(keyword: Clonezilla)

... no backup - no pity ... :)
