??? What happened? How? [Solved]

Looks like https://superuser.com/questions/489180/ ... ash-script ...
When removing the double quotes you seem to have removed the CRs as well.

Porteus with zstd compression

correct me if i'm wrong: decompression times don't have an effect beyond activation(therefore boot times), ie. once loaded to the union there should be no difference in performance.. For as far as I am aware squashfses loaded in the union are still in compressed format -- it would take a lot of mem...

Porteus Kernel Builder

My experiences with ntfs-3g are that writing files is more than speedy enough, it is creating the files that is slow. So copying from ntfs-3g via usb 3.0 to ntfs-3g my 131G backup directory with relatively large and hence relatively few files takes 14 mins, but doing the same for a 125G documents di...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

As e.g. an engrampa of both Slackware's and Alien's ffmpeg packages shows these do not contain a libffmpeg.so. Googling for "libffmpeg slackware" gives quite some hits.
Some research is needed. Added that research to my todo list. This may take some time though.

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

To list the missing dependencies of an executable or library issue in an xterm something like: ldd /usr/bin/electron | grep found And yes, when adding a dependency you may find that this dependency itself has missing dependencies. However, this is not as awkward as it looks: in my experience for the...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

Downloaded the .xzm bundle. In the meantime I googled for "electron slackware" and found an electron 1.4.16 i586 .txz package as well as a slackbuild. After installpkg'ing that package it turned out that "electron" starts ok -- which is kind of surprising as an "ldd | grep found" gave that 2 out of ...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

Ok, I created a USB stick with Porteus Mate 3.2.2 i586 and the 05-devel.xzm. You said you downloaded electron 1.4.16 from USM. When I searched USM for "electron" nothing came up. Please make your download available to me -- e.g. via Google Drive -- or tell me the full URL such that I can download it...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

Ok, that answers the 32-bit question. Now please elaborate on my 3.2.2 vs 4.0 question. And please elaborate on why you *think* there would be KDE or Gnome or Mate as a GUI. The GUI should not be a major factor, but why do not you *know*? And did you ever have a look at http://dl.porteus.org/i586/ ?...

Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?

I added researching things to my todo list. I expect to have an update within a few days.
BTW: How "hard" are your 32-bit and Porteus 3.2 requirements -- 64-bit and Porteus 4.0 are more current nowadays.
Also, which desktop flavour are you targeting?

If you want more hand holding then you should have said so in the other thread.

Development for Porteus v3.2 with Electron

You asked the same question in Electron Apps on Porteus 32bit - is it possible?.
Asking the same question twice is not regarded as polite.
If you want more hand holding then you should have said so in the other thread.

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...

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), ...
