Re: problem with installation

I've only got two partitions on the second SATA drive: a small swap partition at the start and a 300Gb partition that contains Mandriva which I can boot to.

Re: problem with installation

brokenman, do you mean if the operating system is placed above 137Gb? I was able to boot to the operating system that covered almost the whole 320Gb drive.

Re: problem with installation

My BIOS has no problems with drives above 137Gb.

I used Unetbootin when I successfully installed Porteus on the first SATA drive.

Re: problem with installation

There is something else I should mention. When I installed Porteus on the second SATA it gave me a question, something like "Do I want to overwrite vmlinuz?" Yes to all, Yes or No? Normally I never get this question. I chose 'Yes to all' & I could not boot into Porteus or Mandriva. I then attempted ...

Re: problem with installation

I have already used Unetbootin to successfully do a frugal installation of Porteus on the first drive (inside Mandriva Linux). Grub1 is used.

The Porteus folder is there but fdisk -l gives an error message.

problem with installation

I have a SATA drive (sda) & installed a Linux operating system on my second SATA drive, sdb5. Booting to that operating system I then used Unetbootin to do a frugal installation of Porteus. When I tried to boot to Porteus it gave an error saying there was no hd(1,4) partition.

Anyone have LibreOffice 4.0 or earlier?

I downloaded LibreOffice.xzm (4.1 I think it is) from http://dl.porteus.org/i486/current/modules/ but it’s buggy so I’m looking for earlier versions. I’ll accept versions down to 2.2. The problems I encountered were: I can’t print page footers; text after a superscript appear in the same size as the...

Re: requests

donald, "login=user_name" only lets you enable auto-log-in, not to stop it.

, yes, that's what I'm looking for, an intrusion detection system that does what I mentioned.

Another request: in the PSC there should be a button to enter super-user terminal, since you've already typed in your password.
