snap or flatpak for Porteus?

Hello,
I agree with Francois, it would be very nice if Porteus 5 can use all the programs of Flatpak and to assembly the xzm module. This is my view from the perspective of a user, I am not a programmer. Thanks to all for the efforts.
Regards

Porteus 5 + Virtualbox - after some time running it stops for unknown reason, any ideas?

Thanks a lot ncmprhnsbl.
So then, Porteus can not be a rolling distro, and when a new version is delivered, the best approach is to make a new installation and to restore from backup the home directory with the users.

VirtualBox - Issue: Shared Folder is empty on guest - Help is appreciated

Hello and thanks Ed_P
In guest user y get this path:
root@porteus:/media/sf_PB#
I had to enter the directory using Action > Open Root Dolphin
What does this means, am I doing something wrong?:
The /mnt/live/memory/changes directory is tied to the Porteus SaveData function.
