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

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

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

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.

Porteus 5.0rc2 touchpad autostart changes overridden

The entry in /etc/rc.d/rc.local is executed once and only once when the system boots. The entry in /etc/xdg/autostart is executed every time X comes up. Have a look at your script with that difference in mind.
And what happens in fresh mode?

OverlayFS Porteus

Aah, I see the misunderstanding now: I understood your remark "If a kernel can be built with AUFS, it is much better to use the AUFS kernel" as a non-distribution-specific remark, so when I said "I am using overlayfs for for several years now" I meant that as a non-distribution-specific remark too ....

OverlayFS Porteus

@neko : The following is an excerpt from my email to the PartedMagic BDFL: Patrick: Indeed the problem with overlayfs as compared to aufs is that it is not possible to add bundles (.sqfm) to a running overlay file system. Ideally therefore one should include all bundles when the overlay file system...

OverlayFS Porteus

@neko:
If a kernel can be built with AUFS, it is much better to use the AUFS kernel.
Would you be so kind as to elaborate? I am using overlayfs for several years now and imho it is at least on par with aufs.

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...

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