Thank you!!

Forgot to mention had to enable legacy boot. Tried gpt formatted usb at first. Had to go msdos. Possibly I got spoiled by Nemesis but that refind booting worked quite well on my hardware.

Porteus v5.0rc1 problems

Nice release! I have RTL8821CE and also need 05-devel. Git too. Also kernel sources. Trackpad does not work. Its an Elan 1200. Shutdown seems to hang forever on deactivating volume groups as I have some lvms on local machine with f2fs partitions within.

Re: Several questions about the Kiosk Edition

Wondering if the status of serial to usb modules in the kernel has changed in recent releases? I recently became the IT guy for a retail marijuana shop in colorado. We use all in one HP and Lenovo windows desktops to support a hosted Point Of Sale interface. I am finding that the windows 10 upgrade ...

Re: Change Log

Would this be more arch compliant and better than openrc? Saw that Void Linux using it.

Re: Bug reports

Set up on fat32 usb and ran pman -Syu after setting the initial configs via automated scripts. Ran pman -S xorg-server xfce4 and am looking at a desktop after rebooting. Did the same for firefox but when I went to activate the module the error that returned indicated that there was a missing "xactiv...

Re: Suggestions

Thanks for making the ISO's!! Just saw this a few days ago, thanks to some mention on front page chat. I haven't pulled from git but am interested in testing and offering anything that results. Great project! I'm so behind... Tried a ext4 usb stick for first go but ran in to the pacman-settings corr...

Re: minimal Porteus question

Judging light weight desktops is best done on frail hardware. Looking at numbers on larger cpu based machines is figurative at best. I looked over all the light weight desktop reviews before starting this project and lots talked about how much ram was occupied by various candidates. On a 400mhz cpu ...

Re: minimal Porteus question

I got it. Repacking xorg.xzm without geode drivers helped. Had to delete /porteus/changes afterwards. I set up an init3 recovery in menu.lst on starting to build, just in case. FYI anyone looking to build minimal: JWM does not take focus in a way that svkbd can work with. xvkbd with --always-on-top ...

Re: minimal Porteus question

Found the problem: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=637778 Now, how do I go about disabling the geode driver that is included in 002-xorg.xzm? I can assign vesa in the xorg.conf but as long as geode is in the drivers folder x will try to load. Going in on init 3 and removing /usr/li...

Re: minimal Porteus question

yes: "video=lxfb:800x600-16@60" when added to kernel line of grubs menu.lst boots the hardware and if I am not mistaken that forces a kernel frame buffer. Made an xcb-all.xzm (from slackware 14.1 x/xcb-*) as well as a DirectFB.xzm. On boot now xorg.conf gets rejected and auto x script in Porteus fai...

Re: minimal Porteus question

Thanks guys. Heh... My gpu is an AMD Geode GX1. I have 256mb of ram to load Portues and windowing system in to and 400mhz of cpu. Circa 1997. This hardware pretty much excludes weyland as compositing will not work well. Running a user contributed e16.xzm with translucency was even a bit hard. QT is ...

Re: minimal Porteus question

Many thanks wread! Do you mind If I ask a few basic questions? I have a 32 bit version that I build from slackpkg -> txz2xzm. How does one implement? I notice some programs add to the menus and one that looks like debugging, ddd. I am hoping to save some install space with this. Will this work as a ...

After a few attempts at trying to force a lilo install I have found another way: http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?t=145&p=611 This worked perfectly on Porteus 3.1 and has me booting legacy, seriously old hardware. Ironically I installed x86 version of Slackware 14.1 on PC and Porteus-installer...
