Re: Can no longer login to Porteus after partition [not solv

Ha! Not as fixed as I'd thought. Keep arriving after automatic login at the keyboard selection dialogue: keep adjusting it but it's coming up every time. Also in file manager Guest > Desktop > New window > Guest > Desktop > New window > Guest > Desktop > New window loop. A real mess.

Re: Can no longer login to Porteus after partition [solved]

Thanks, brokenman.

Delay involving udevadm [Solved]

Haven't had any success with my previous post (about Trojita not sending emails) but maybe I'll get more responses with my other Porteus problem: Whenever I start up Porteus, it gets to this line: Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --action=add then stalls for about 30 seconds, then loads...

Can't Send Email with Trojita
