My Mate build Porteus Base files

Here is his list that wasn't in mind. "his" being me (jss), I thought I had to answer. It is slightly complicated, but I think still doable. Jack , from your package list you are taking Willy Sudiarto Raharjo's packages (who maintains msb). Now, here is the problem: Willy Sudiarto Raharjo's package...

Security Boot Fail

It also takes away with the whole portability idea. I mean, we say install porteus on a USB drive that you carry in your pocket, which you can boot your customized OS on any computer. That's not really true is it. You can boot it only from your computers where you have disabled secure boot. But outs...

So basically you don't boot to Ubuntu you boot to grub. Interesting.
Isn't it? I thought this might be easier, because one does not need to go into the bios, and turn off secure boot. One step lesser, hence easier.

It would be nice to figure out how the Ubuntu system supports the Secure Boot option so Porteus can do it also.
You need to sign the grub bootloader. Ubuntu does it with Canonical's signature, fedora with red hat's

Unclear to me. Are you referring to the /EFI/boot/ folder? Can you post an ls of the boot folder? EFI and boot are seperate directories guest@porteus:~$ ls -Ral /mnt/sdc1/EFI/ /mnt/sdc1/EFI/: total 12 drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 4096 Aug 23 11:30 ./ drwxrwxrwx 13 root root 4096 Jan 1 1970 ../ drwxrwxrwx...

Security Boot Fail

So the USB's EFI & boot folders end up containing both Ubuntu and Porteus files? No, the EFI and boot folders are only that of ubuntu. I put the porteus kernel and initrd in this boot folder. And copy the porteus folder onto the USB. Then I add an entry (or multiple entries) in the boot/grub/grub.c...

Security Boot Fail

There's a kind of workaround that I use without disabling secureboot. First flash ubuntu (or fedora) on the thumb drive. Just the live usb. Ubuntu does not need secure boot to be disabled. Now nuke all traces of ubuntu from the usb except the EFI and boot. Now copy porteus folders on the USB and edi...

Connect network share at boot

JeWe , rc.local is executed as root at the end of bootup, so it is probably not a permission issue. However, during boot up, the PATH is not set (since root user has not yet logged in). Hence you need to call the mount.cifs command using the full path, that is: /sbin/mount.cifs Some other things: 1...
