Block certain directories from saving changes

Maybe use the changes=EXIT cheatcode.
(read /boot/docs/cheatcodes.txt)

Ex- or include folders in /etc/changes-exit.conf

Saving network signons

I made an entry in my .bash_history file to clear it from time to time.
> ~/.bash_history

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ > ~/.bash_history

porteus 5rc3 list of all commands and install packages

compgen -c will list all the commands you could run.

to save the output as a list (file), run:
compgen -c > ~/commands.txt

for packages run ls /var/log/packages/ > ~/packages.txt

you will find both files in your home dir.

What manipulation?
Did you not read this:
(and even when we add up all votes, it is still dark images 7 votes, bright images 6 votes)
Mabye I need new glasses, but I count dark = 6 and bright = 7 in your screenshot.

Dark wins 6:5 if you exclude single votes, otherwise bright wins 7:6

I only count votes that have at least 2 persons voted for them.
LOL..

To counteract your manipulation of the statistics,
I feel compelled to cast a vote after all.
..so please count again.

Save space = no (or only one) wallpaper - imo eveyone most likely uses their own..

abcde-2.7.1-noarch + cd-discid-1.4-x86_64-2jsc - fixed abcde.conf

If you want mp3 files of good quality, I recommend to use something like this: lame -m s -b 256 -q 2 --strictly-enforce-ISO One could want to decode the mp3 file back to wav to burn a audio-CD and you can not bring back what is lost by encoding to mp3.

PaleMoon:

Ed's link is a https one which gives:
