Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

burdi01 , I've found this (in porteus 4 at least): /sbin/udev-fstab-update which is run by /etc/udev/rules.d/10-porteus-fstab-update.rules, and which indeed has the relevant line: # Variables initialized by the udev environment: # $ACTION (add, change, remove) # $DEVNAME (device name including path...

Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

OK, actually I don't care about the original /dev/* name. As I anyway get the symlink: /dev/disk/by-label/WorkUSB I just want it to be always and uniquely mounted to /mnt/WorkUSB My /etc/fstab says this: # Do not edit this file as fstab is recreated automatically during every boot. # Please use /etc...

Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

burdi01 , Thanks, but it is already known to the system by a symlink as /dev/disk/by-label/WorkUSB I don't think I need yet another symlink for it, do I? Anyway, I guess I can then write a fstab for mounting those symlinks (--another thing I'm not too familiar with) ... But, could I have the true d...

Permanent device/mount name for a USB disk

When I feel like doing some actual work I plug a USB disk labelled "WorkUSB". Could it always be known as /dev/workusb? So that it'd be automatically mounted as /mnt/workusb (or /mnt/workusb1 if more than 1 partition I guess)? At the moment I get /mnt/sdb or /mnt/sdc depending which letter is still ...

/etc/profile.d/*.sh executed twice

Blaze , thank you. Where can I download the "main tree" and if not I have 2 questions please: How did you fix this particular issue, which file to edit? I'd like to finally upgrade from porteus 4. Would you advise to start using 5.0rc2 now as it could take another year to wait for Slackware to go t...

/etc/profile.d/*.sh executed twice

The scripts in /etc/profile.d are still invoked twice in Porteus-v5.0rc2. Why, and what's the modern way to avoid it?

QtFM for OpenBox

Porteus 5 rc2 please. (What's the difference?) I'd also like SpaceFM and use it mainly. It's just with my unstable USB, when it breaks (stops?) and I have to use fsck, SpaceFM doesn't recover well: settings are gone, and now even the desktop side of it like mime file types actions and whatnot are co...

QtFM for OpenBox

ncmprhnsbl, could you build the new qtfm-6.2.0 for Porteus 5 OpenBox and LXQT, or teach me how, please? By the way, what's your favorite alternative FM these days?

Recoll a full-text file indexing and GUI search

OK, after spending a few hours I think I have assembled necessary libraries to run an older version, recoll_1.23.7-1_amd64 -- one that was still built against the Qt5.9.5 -- my current Qt5 subsystem -- which I'll keep using until Porteus 5.0 is released. That would be the time to upgrade everything ...

Recoll a full-text file indexing and GUI search

Could someone please help me build the reportedly best (?) tool for searching in files: Recoll https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/index.html . The old version found on USM is old and relies on Qt4. I have (a subset of, through https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?t=7799 ) Qt5 on my Porteus 4.0...

Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0

dear jssouza , hope you're still around and thank you again for the modules. I'm now trying to use a recoll package (https://altlinux.pkgs.org/sisyphus/classic-x86_64/recoll-1.27.3-alt1.x86_64.rpm.html) and it requires Qt5WebKitWidgets (at least, maybe some others). None of your modules contain thos...

GLIBC_2.30

ncmprhnsbl , thanks, I used your link and txz2xzm glibc-2.30. Activated the module. Waterfox runs well and no other programs have broken so far, although I suspect I essentially updated (some parts of) the system GLIBC. If something fails I can always deactivate the glibc-2.30-x86_64-1.xzm and try ...

GLIBC_2.30

Apparently I need the new GLIBC_2.30 on my Porteus 4, see the error below when I try to run Waterfox Classic. I think the system glic is 2.27. And I hope I don't have to replace it as it could break other things. Or is it okay to replace? Can I put it next to the waterfox binary so that it picks it ...

(solved) INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast

Kulle , for me it's always (twice so far) a consequence of improper shutdown it seems. (And my USB has 2 partitions to complicate things, the 1st is NTFS). So I have another (porteus) USB to boot into, then plug the problematic one (say, /dev/sdc), unmount and run: e2fsck -vf /dev/sdc2 and similarl...

(solved) INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast

After trying the GIMP module gimp-2.10.6+deps-x86_64-kde-lx-xfce-ob-stripped.xzm, on loading a very large image, my whole Porteus 4.0 64 OpenBox system was frozen, no keyboard even, so I had to restart the computer by long pressing PowerOff button. Now every time I boot (with an additional fsck chea...
