But I wanted to start fresh so I build my own conky-1.10.8-i586-bundle.xzm via USM. content: -- (32 Bit but should also be available in 64 Bit x86_64 I think) conky-1.10.8-i5...

(I wanted to know if something gets written onto the usb-stick (it shouldn't)) Note: This conky shows what I wan...

If one has an EFI system it supports booting the USB drive, but it does nothing with BIOS systems
Secure Boot is an UEFI protocol.
And because (s)he has/found a switch to disable Secure Boot....
....what kind of "BIOS" might that be?
You’ll figure it out yourself, do you?. ;)

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

Any way to test the created Porteus USB stick on another PC?
Just to make sure the drive itself works.

I can not help with Windows stuff, but maybe
one of these videos can take you a step further.

DISTROS="slackware slackwarepatches salix alien ponce slackonly" # slacky
There we have it ...this line is the wrong one., re-add slacky

EDIT
delete your /etc/usm/usm.conf.bkup if the file contains the same wrong line.
Otherwise the issue will return because this file is copied back to usm.conf.

Then reality set in. :(
That's not my reality... :)

However, check if your /etc/usm/usm.conf is the one with the complete DISTROS line.

maybe run usmupdate2021.sh as guest before any use of USM

[Solved] restarting USM??

In porteus the ls command uses an alias adding the -F option, (and more), look in ~/.bashrc When using the ls command, the asterisk indicates an executable file. cat ~/.bashrc # Setup color scheme for list call <brokenman> alias ll='/bin/ls --color=auto -lF' alias la='/bin/ls --color=auto -axF' alia...
