container file system advice

same reasons that justify save.dat I guess: symbolic links, linux permissions -- all features of an ext4 file system encapsulated in an NTFS file. Plus, I'm going to leave it on the host between sessions: content hidden from Windows search, perhaps even encrypted.

bravo! and so fast! You must be doing something smarter rather than chasing down dependencies one by one on pkgs.org?

container file system advice

How do I go about creating my own container image file, similar in spirit to porteus save.dat I guess, that I can mount and unmount and work with like a file system. I'd appreciate a guidance into the search results I'm getting: Docker, overlay fs, overlay2, aufs, etc. or simply doing what's describ...

I'd like to request for an up-to-date, stand-alone git module to exist outside 05-devel.xzm (it's a rather old version there too, 2.9). I've seen the git-core-2.15.1-1.2.x86_64.rpm and built an xzm module from it but of course is misses a lot of dependencies. USM does list git-2.14.1 but on a broken...

Firefox ESR

@Ed_P, there is a new version in the ESR channel http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.5.2esr/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-52.5.2esr.tar.bz2 Could you teach me how to make an xzm module from the bz2 file or the unpacked folder which is simply called 'firefox'. What I don't see is how it can b...

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Success! After mount /dev/nvme0n1p3 I can finally access (read-write) the host NTFS system with ls /mnt/nvme0n1p3 Was I supposed to mount it manually, and are there any parameters I need to supply to the mount command? Other than that, a big "Thank you!" and another reason to look forward to porteus...

PM961 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD not supported?

Thanks, brokenman: have tried your porteus-4.0-x86_64-20171120.iso. I think there is a progress: I can now see /dev/nvme**** entries and two of them are mounted into /mnt/nvme**** However, those mounted appear to be empty with ls -la. So, I still can't see my host system disk. Perhaps I need to moun...

@wread Thank you so much! Your solution worked for me with the following adjustments: 1. it wouldn't run without FreeImage library. So altogether the following 4 modules were needed on my system cryptopp-5.6.5-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm db48-4.8.30-x86_64-2.xzm FreeImage-3.17.0-x86_64-bundle.xzm megafuse-x...

This has turned out to be relatively easy, on my system at least. Find google-drive-ocamlfuse-0.6.21-1.mga7.x86_64.rpm, convert it to xzm, activate. Then it just works following the usage instructions on the website.

Thank you, @brokenman, I look forward to trying it. Is it going to appear in http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/Porteus-v3.2.2/kernel/ or elsewhere - I can't find it?

OK, I'm trying to convert that rpm -- it's not easy to chase the missing library one by one, installing and creating symbolic links to wrong versions of a library, and now I hit an especially troubling: MegaFuse: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.22' not found (required by MegaFuse) Fi...

USM bug reports

The safm.sh stumbled too at some stage. I decided to delete /var/usm and /etc/usm, reboot, and start anew. Then usm eventually worked well. But before it did, it presented me with a different BUG: As it resolves dependencies and downloads archives it doesn't seem to be checking for their integrity, ...
