XEN and Porteus

Playing with XEN is on my todo list for quite some time now.
For as far as I understand things a requirement is to give the installation a complete disk. But at the moment I do not have a spare disk/desktop/laptop lying around ...

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

Ad 1) From your other issues on these Porteus fora I derive that you are able to find, download and run ISOs. To "burn" an ISO to a USB stick I would recommend the BalenaEtcher application for Windows and Linux. Ad 2) Gparted is a GUI application that is included with Porteus as well as Ubuntu. I as...

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

@meet : 1) Download the Ubuntu 18.04.1 ISO. 2) Prepare your target USB stick: e.g. with gparted create an msdos partition table, create a fat32 partition, flag that partition as boot,esp and mount that partition on e.g. /mnt. 3) Copy the /boot and /ESP folders from the Ubuntu ISO to /mnt. 4) Run "g...

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

Disabling Secure Boot sometimes is a hell of a thing to do. E.g. on my HP laptop this causes screaming (really!) boot failures until you find that you have to type in a "pin code". Therefore I use the Grub2 implementation from the Ubuntu 18.04.1 ISO. This implementation itself is signed and thus wil...

modprobe configs

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

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...
