Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

Congratulations to the team. :Bravo:
A question, not a bug : Current is a fast-moving target. Will updates c.q. new isos be released on every Current update, or once a week / month /whatever or only with a new release?

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

On my Current64 install I sometimes have two versions of libs to cater for "third-party" applications not updated for the new version yet. In the majority of cases this works ok, but some time last year having two icu4c versions made things very unstable.

For quite some time now I use Google Drive. 500+ MB files are no problem.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

I noticed that the 4.0 ISOs in http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/testing/Porteus-v4.0rc1/ are labeled "rc1". For as far as I am aware beta and rc releases are for public testing, but one will not get much testing without announcing them ... I was aware of the alpha (?) ISOs of some months ago, but I miss...

AgiliaLinux

some ideas
Such as?

Note that AgiliaLinux is a discontued distribution the last release of which was 5 years ago.
The website is no longer accessible, the releases can no longer be downloaded.
The ISO (?) as mentioned by the OP is a beta for a release of more than 6 years ago.

libquadmath.so.0

In many such cases https://packages.slackware.com/ will give you the answer.
If not googling for (in this case) "libquadmath slackware" most probably will help.

Installing Oracle XE on Porteus

If you can at least provide the oracle package we can try to build it for you.
Would not that amount to re-distributing the package? For as far as I am aware Oracle does not allow that.

a question about whiteouts and persistence

@abelM : I will have a look at that thread. @brokenman : As I said: < to be continued > ... The next test I planned was to "delete" a file from a "normal" xzm, e.g. guest's .config/gecko-mediaplayer/gecko-mediaplayer.conf from 003-mate.xzm. The whitout indeed is copied to the persistence file too, ...

a question about whiteouts and persistence

I recreated abelM's problem -- or rather symptom because the whiteouts in the persistence file, though not nice, do not pose a problem for as far as I can see -- at logout as well as via dump-session. As guest I created the "useless.txt" file in home directory. Technically speaking this file is crea...

a question about whiteouts and persistence

On a first impulse I would say too that the whiteout for your /home/guest/my_useless_doc *) is unnecessary. I did a preliminary test and did not see such a whiteout -- when looking at /mnt/live/memory/changes/home/guest/ (which access is outside of the union). You run with persistence and I do not. ...

a question about whiteouts and persistence

Actually aufs has an option to handle the whiteouts in a "save session" feature.
See http://aufs.sourceforge.net/aufs2/shwh/README.txt for details.
If you have access to a not-too-old PartedMagic release see the /usr/bin/pmagic_save_session.v2 script for my implementation.

wget

In a 1-line script I have:

Code: Select all

wget -m -e robots=off --no-parent --reject="index.html*" "$@"
where the "$@" represents the "http://<dir>" or "https://<dir>" invocation parameter(s).
