Re: The future of Porteus

I'm not a great Linux fan. In my everyday work I use mainly Windows. However I have used Slax, and then switched to Porteus, as a lightweight recovery platform. Actually I still use Porteus 3.0 x86 with the LXDE desktop. Tools I need to have are web browser (I prefer Firefox), dc3dd or dcfldd, gpart...

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

Fragment's of response from the Author of DMDE: (...) getuid() may be called different ways thus may result in the problem. If you call it using libc function then getuid() returns correct result on Porteus. But also it may be called using system call. (...) More thorough study found that system cal...

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

This is quoted answer of the DMDE Author: The message you see means actually what it says - the software is not run as root. More exactly: getuid()!=0. And nothing more. If you read the documentation you know how to skip this check: http://dmde.com/manual/setup.html As I can see on Porteus getuid() ...

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

So I have no idea where's the problem, as the DMDE author claims that there is no other check, and after disabling this check program works.

To even further ensure, I've written a simple program in C, that calls the mentioned getuid() function from unistd.h, and it also returns 0.

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

It is a commercial (paid) software, free version has a limited functionality (i.e. automatic recovery of single files only). This is a very advanced tool, definitely not for beginners, you must know what you are doing when using this software. Anyways the only problem was in fact that the root accou...

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

The author of DMDE claims that the only check which is done to verify weather app is executed from superuser account is checking whether getuid() returns 0.

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

if you really need this app in porteus then please grab slax's kernel and compile aufs against it (make sure it's compiled directly into kernel to avoid modprobing in initrd) and it should work ok. I really need this app (as this is the best data recovery tool I know), actually I need a bootable US...

Re: DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires super

I've forgot to say - my Porteus uses root account as default for X. DMDE is a console app, so I've tried to run it from text console (TTY1) being logged as a root - with no luck.

DMDE won't run from root claiming that it requires superuser

I've got a problem with the DMDE - it won't start from the root account claiming that it requires the superuser rights (original spelling): You need Administrator/Superuser priveleges to access devices. Log in as an Administrator and run the program as an Administrator (read the software documentati...
