Porteus Kernel Builder

Dear Neko, Let me start with apologizing for this somewhat off-topic question that on top of things you may have answered in the years before: When I run a make oldconfig I see the unchanged options fly by as well. Yet your config prototypes above do not contain this "noise". How do you do that? Kin...

Xfce x64 module updated

I guess that your "pmagic_load_sqfm" has the 2 steps;
1st step: decompress squashFS
2nd step: copy those current space.
Actually I use:

Code: Select all

mount -t squashfs -nro loop "$F" "$FF"
rsync -aS "$FF/" /    # did not find a faster method
umount "$FF"

Xfce x64 module updated

By pure chance I noticed the "=== Porteus 4.0 Overlay FS trial version ===" phrase in post #16. As I maintain a personal, non-official fork of PartedMagic using overlayfs I was intrigued and downloaded the ISO. I am especially interested in how *dynamically* adding xzm bundles ("pmagic_load_sqfm" fo...

32bit "ghost" executable with porteus 3.2.2 64bit?

The above module is no longer available.
For the record the pertinent 32-bit libraries are: ld-linux.so.2 libc.so.6 libdl.so.2 libgcc_s.so libm.so.6 and libpthread.so.0 (and their link targets of course).

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.

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

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...
