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.

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.

Porteus Kernel Builder

Hi neko, Would it be possible to make CONFIG_MFD_RTSX_PCI=y in the kernel? Please check this posting: Install Porteus on SD card (Post by jssouza #70027) . It used to be set to 'y' in the kernels during the porteus 3.2.2 days. But on later kernels it is set to be built as a module 'm' or not includ...

Install Porteus on SD card

That's ok, no need to be sorry. I think I have to manually load the kernel modules in the init script. So now I did that change in the initrd.xz. Please find the updated initrd.xz - http://www.mediafire.com/file/zoa1fny4dbks445/initrd.xz/file . As before, replace the initrd.xz with this one. And try...

Press any key other than space/enter like the image says to get to a prompt. Provided your keyboard is detected that is.

If yes, you should get a prompt. Provide outputs of these commands:
uname -r
lsmod
ls /mnt
ls -R /lib/modules

No no, dont do that. Use the updated kernel. 4.16.8. The modules I put in the initrd.xz are from the updated kernel, not the original.

Install Porteus on SD card

Somehow the boot process is not clear to me. The vmlinuz can be loaded, and also the porteus.cfg, so that I can choose one of those options copy2ram, fresh etc. But then the porteus folder on the same drive cannot be found just because of missing driver? The vmlinuz is the linux kernel. It, initrd,...

Install Porteus on SD card

I cannot recall anymore which mirror it was one of these http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/kernel/porteus-4.16.8/. Ok, I took the rtsx_pci modules from that kernel and added it into the initrd. Here is the updated initrd.xz: http://www.mediafire.com/file/24czz73sljvgjsc/initrd.xz/file . It might be that...

Install Porteus on SD card

Surprisingly, porteus v4 which is not able to boot from sd card has this driver whereas porteus 3.2 miss it but able to boot from sd There you go, that is the problem. The driver is not seen on the 4.9 kernel because the driver is compiled directly into the kernel and not as a separate module. That...

Install Porteus on SD card

As root, modinfo iwlwifi in your working as well as your non working cases to see which firmware is missing. You can also do an lsmod to check if iwlwifi driver is missing in the older kernel case. On your running system using USB on porteus 4, insert your sdcard and check which driver and firmware ...

You have to try if porteus 4 works with the older kernel.
Another finding: wifi is not available, nor on v3.2 neither on v.4 with 000-kernel from v3.
Wifi hardware info please.

Install Porteus on SD card

Can I indeed just replace the 000-kernel with the old one? You should be able to. Note that you need to replace not just the 000-kernel.xzm but also vmlinuz. Isn´t better just to stick with v3.2.2, since the kernel (4.9) is anyway outdated even if you can use it in v4.0? If porteus 4 boots with the...

Try using the kernel (vmlinuz) and 000-kernel.xzm from porteus 3.2.2 on your porteus 4.
