Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

Yes, I meant an app, not an AppImage. Ok, accept my apologies for initially misunderstanding you. Assuming you mean with "app" a normal application such as e.g. a calculator the answer to your initial question is that there is nothing "special" to adding an application to Porteus as compared to add...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

When reading back this thread it occurs to me that you speak of an electron-based *app* while I speak of an electron-based *AppImage*. Please elaborate.

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

BTW, can you give me a sample of Electron app for 32bit Porteus? No, I do not. However, I think you ask a wrong question. An AppImage is supposed to be distribution-independent, however it expects certain features on the "host" - such as the kernel to be able to run an application with the "bittine...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

Refer to e.g. https://discourse.appimage.org/t/32-bit-appimages/296 Is you AppImage 32-bit? If it is not you can forget running it on a 32-bit system -- for as far as I am aware that is. I tested the 64-bit balenaEtcher AppImage on Porteus 4.0 32-bit: Execution format error (as was to be expected), ...

i486 and i586 distributives - what is the difference?

To muddle the waters even more "i386" is/was also used by some vendors as generic term for 32-bit.

TERM=xterm-256color

This seems to be a default in Slackware and its derivates since quite some time -- I could not find an explicit setting either. In /etc/profile I changed the TERM setting therefore to: # Fight TERM pecularities: if [ "$TERM" = "" -o "$TERM" = "unknown" ]; then TERM=linux elif [ "$TERM" = "xterm-256c...

Releases

Porteus is ... only based on the current release of Slackware at the time of the Porteus release.
Ok, that answers my question.
Thx, and keep on the good work.

Releases

When experimenting for Simple install for users of non-Windows and non-Linux x86_64 systems I once more noted that the last Porteus release was on Apr 22, 2018. Since then I see some haphazard updates on http://dl.porteus.org/ and its mirrors, but no announcements. As per Porteus-v4.0 is released! (...

Simple install for users of non-Windows and non-Linux x86_64 systems

Providing (a zip of) a filesystem that only contains the infrastructure to boot the ISO and that can be dd'ed (*nix) or written by Etcher (linux, windows) or Rufus (windows) to the USB would resolve this chicken-and-egg problem. The only thing the user has to do afterwards is copying the ISO (or its...

Re: Playing DVD on VLC - A FAILURE

We have seen DVD problems after a VLC upgrade.
Try removing ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc.

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

1.1 GB :shock: Compressed!! :o Can you upload just the xzm file? Of course I can. That would be 458 MB. However when distributing an application "Open Source" requires one to at least state the origin of the inputs (and where appropriate include the inputs themselves) as well as the transformations...

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

The .xzm in https://drive.google.com/file/d/1I874DI ... sp=sharing ... Added an emphasise to the original link.
The tar.gz also contains the original winehq package and the builder script to make an .xzm out of it.

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

I downloaded wine from the same site, but I used version 3.21 instead of 3.0.4. From my experience I know that I can use bundles for (my fork of) PartedMagic (.sqfm) in Porteus (.xzm) and vice versa with no or a few amendments but for the rename. That this time things took longer than expected had t...

Re: Porteus Kernel Builder

For fun I applied your 5.0-rc2 kernel to my Current64-based fork (work in progress) of PartedMagic: works like a charm. I only had to add a "max_loop=256" kernel boot parameter.
