Unable to access partitions

Which fs format do you require, JFS or HPFS? JFS is built as a module. Does it not load when your hard drive is mounted? You can manually modprobe jfs as root and then try to mount. Yes, looks like HPFS is not built. # CONFIG_HPFS_FS is not set Unfortunately you cannot use the crippled_sources.xzm t...

Qt 5.9.1 framework (modular) + Qt Creator 4.3.1

Hi rych , I have created Qt 5.12 packages that are used in our Porteus 5 development. These were built on a much later Slackware current snapshot than that of Qt 5.9.1, so may or may not work for you in your Porteus 4 environment (newer icu, glibc etc). But no harm in giving them a try: http://www.m...

package manager contender: emerde

Where do you see it as presently maintained?
Download links seem to be dead. The last supported version it says is for Slackware 9 (2003).

porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg ignores changes

In linuxrc, the changes= is searched for in the CFG file before the location of the CFG file is determined. Hence changes= is not found. Offending line in linuxrc: CHANGES=`value changes` value() function itself searches for CFG file existence as if [ -e $CFGDEV/$FOLDER/$CFG ]; then But the $CFGDEV ...

su -c /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable guest

Why not also try with what it complains about? Or do you want the sandboxing?

Code: Select all

su -c "dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --no-sandbox guest"

Broadcom wifi does not work. Porteus 4.0 64 bit

Like I said, you actually needed the Broadcom wl module which is not there in the 4.0 kernel but present in the 3.2.2 kernel.

Broadcom wifi does not work. Porteus 4.0 64 bit

Check if the bcomosd.xzm module posted here works - 4.0 doesn't support wifi on netbook. 3.2.2 does. (Post by jssouza #67440) . As mentioned there, make sure this module gets activated at boot time. If it still does not work, you might actually need broadcomm wl, which was part of the 3.2.2 kernel b...

Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

@chromer,

Slackware has moved a lot since Porteus 4. Some software like mozjs required only by Cinnamon is now part of Slackware.
For the upcoming Porteus 5, I have created Cinnamon 4, and in our internal testings, it looks quite good.

Install Porteus on SD card

The ls -R contents are correct. Those are the exact files I added into the changed initrd. The /lib/modules folder is from the initrd. Not the actual root file system.
