Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

Your conditional assignment is syntactically ok. Whether or not udev initializes an ID_FS_LABEL variable would require some research/fiddling to be answered. However, I do not like your approach: replacing code instead of just adding, doing things for all labelled filesystems etc. etc. What I would ...

Porteus Does Not Support EFI in VirtualBox?

Obviously P{4,5} is not such a special OS. Actually many (most ?) Linuxes are not. The only Linux distribution I know to thus boot is PartedMagic.

Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

Hmm, it never occurred to me to use /dev/disk/by-label/foo as such -- thks for this tip.
As per man fstab(5) a LABEL=<label> or UUID=<uuid> may be given instead of a device name.
IIRC (I do not have the time right now to research) the fstab is recreated somewhere in the init procedure.

reinstalling porteus HDD on asus FX502VM-AS73

IIUC you can still boot via Grub but you no longer have an entry for Windows. If so then boot Windows via Grub: ... regexp --set=hdX '^(.*),' $root ... menuentry 'Chainloader' { set root=($hdX,1) chainloader +1 # ntldr /bootmgr # chainloader /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi } If the "chainloader +1"...

Question for Blaze about his LibreOffice build script

LibreOffice fails with an error complaining about not finding a Java environment.
The java message is a _warning_. If you see an error afterwards that error is for something else.

To test again I just installpkg'ed Alien's .tgz package. Same result as Donald.
Have a look at your .xzm creation.

Question for Blaze about his LibreOffice build script

For as far as I am aware using Java is optional (and not even the default) for Alien's LibreOffice binaries.

Have you tried extracting the iso and put the kernel initrd and modules on the drive itself?
No, I have not. Partly because I think creating a bootable USB stick from an ISO should be like as I mentioned, and partly because I do not have the time right now. Adding this to my todo list ...

Porteus linux on the net or on the waves of the web

This ISO does not boot under VirtualBox (hangs on "Live system is ready now - starting Porteus") nor when dd'ed to a USB stick (asis not at all, after hybridization fails to mount /dev/sdc1).
Actually I was interested in the LinuxWelt ISO, not in a "random" APorteus one.

I am not sure how to get that issue over here.
So, if you want to pursue things, provide me with that ISO.

The contents of the LinuxWelt ISO seems to be more than a year old.
Over here the ISO boots OK under VirtualBox and accesses the internet without problems.
And over here the USB stick I dd'ed the ISO to fails to boot in MBR as well as EFI mode.
