Firefox 63 Update problem

Hmm, I always run my live CDs as root. But of course I meant:

Code: Select all

# Fight the "It looks like you have'nt started Fireforx in a while" message
touch ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/.parentlock

My hunch is that things are provoked by systemd/logind ...

Porteus and VirtualBox (6.1)

Actually, the guest-additions do a lot more than that..
That is why I said "... and you do not *need* the additions".
At least for my use case (developing, testing and running live ISOs) the other features as mentioned in your link are dispensable. But YMMV ...

Porteus and VirtualBox (6.1)

Actually the guest-additions are optional. Run an ftp server on your host and you do not need the additions.

Latest 32 bit Porteus

I downloaded the Porteus-XFCE-v4.0-i586.iso from http://dl.porteus.org/i586/Porteus-v4.0. Its bootsplash says "Porteus 4.0 32bit" and once started a "uname -a" in an xterm says "Linux porteus 4.16.3-porteus #1 SMP ... i686 ...". It might be that your 32-bit boxes are older than i686. In that case go...

Netflix Not Working On Firefox

Enable Settings -> DRM -- the Widevine plugin should be provided automatically then.
For as far as I am aware that is all I did to play Netflix (as I did for the first time two days ago streaming to an oldish TV).

How to transfer files between pcs on same network

Because burdi01 I can transfer files to it when I boot to Windows on my notebook. And IMO if I can do it in Windows I should be able to do it in Linux. Without adding anything to it. If I understand you correctly the crux of your problem is this "Without adding anything to it". And is that "it" you...

How to transfer files between pcs on same network

@Ed_P: What is holding you back from installing an FTP or SSH/SFTP server on your Win7/10 box? Tutorials abund on the net.

How to transfer files between pcs on same network

SFTP should do the trick out of the box.
But FTP, Samba and NFS are possibilities too.

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...
