Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

1.1 GB :shock: Compressed!! :o Can you upload just the xzm file? Of course I can. That would be 458 MB. However when distributing an application "Open Source" requires one to at least state the origin of the inputs (and where appropriate include the inputs themselves) as well as the transformations...

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

The .xzm in https://drive.google.com/file/d/1I874DI ... sp=sharing ... Added an emphasise to the original link.
The tar.gz also contains the original winehq package and the builder script to make an .xzm out of it.

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

I downloaded wine from the same site, but I used version 3.21 instead of 3.0.4. From my experience I know that I can use bundles for (my fork of) PartedMagic (.sqfm) in Porteus (.xzm) and vice versa with no or a few amendments but for the rename. That this time things took longer than expected had t...

Try this module. Wine-Porteus-Gecko-Mono revised
Well, that is very old stuff -- I see dates in 2016 and even in 2013 ...
Working on a more up-to-date version ...

In the mean time have a look at e.g. https://askubuntu.com/questions/1005683 ... -or-64-bit

Re: Porteus Kernel Builder

For fun I applied your 5.0-rc2 kernel to my Current64-based fork (work in progress) of PartedMagic: works like a charm. I only had to add a "max_loop=256" kernel boot parameter.

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...
