Re: Virus in Linux - new reality

Hello,

I'm pretty safe what the the dev's of archlinux will have to say about this...

Are we talking about AUR packages the PPA equivalent, that's other thing: take your on risk: =@

@ Ed_P
@bogomips

Thanks! :beer:

My wifi - realtek - has been on / off for awhile and I had to edit the wpa_suplicant.conf and it looks better now (knock on wood!!!) that's why I wanted to try other DE to test if it was only a xfce4 problem.

Great job!! Another Porteus goodie 8)
