Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Here's a Xfce module for you to test the Mousepad theme: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2327wm9c5 ... e-test.xzm

Regarding the Mpv not being able to open DVDs, have you tried to drag the VIDEO_TS folder to it? You can jump to the chapter you want on the bottom left.

Uefi and porteus 3.0

The problem with FAT32 is that it doesn't support symlinks, so it's not an ideal solution. But I'll give it a try anyway. Thanks.

Have you tried (using ext4 w/) UNetbootin ?
Non-Windows partition is not an option for me. Does Unetbooting work with NTFS + UEFI?

I use Easy2Boot, which use to be RMPrepUSB.
Cool! Do you have a xzm for this app? :)

Uefi and porteus 3.0

Do you know Rufus? It's a Windows program that tries to simplify things in this regard. I tried basically everything using Porteus 4: FAT, FAT32, NTFS. MBR, GPT. Absolutely nothing works, hahaha!

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

@donald, don't get me wrong, but if in your opinion Porteus 4 has no advantage over 3.2.2, why don't you keep using 3.2.2 instead?

Mission, goals and mean: working toward a better porteus

@donald, the module taking less space is not an advantage for the developers. Quite the opposite! It's easy to create a fat distro like Ubuntu family. It's hard to create a distro like TinyCore, regardless of what you prefer. So having just what is needed to work means being faster and consuming les...

Uefi and porteus 3.0

I might be wrong, but 'Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com' usually formats on for legacy mode not UEFI. Or at least that's what I saw yesterday after countless tries of booting Porteus through UEFI -- no success at all.

@Ed_P, that's why I said I will try to log them separating the most critical ones from the cosmetics ones :)

Uefi and porteus 3.0

And here we go with chaos, hahaha! I just want things to be simple :fool: The funny thing is that there's nothing on the UEFI specification requiring a FAT32 partition to work, however, for an unknown reason motherboard manufacturers decided that non-FAT32 partitions are not good for UEFI.

@Ed_P, the idea is good, but most users don't know how to differentiate a DE issue from a generic Porteus issue.

Uefi and porteus 3.0

The big question is: does it allow us to boot through UEFI using a NTFS partition? :)

My suggestion: post these bugs (and how exactly we can reproduce them) inside Porteus 4 bug topic. I'll try to log them separating the most critical ones from the cosmetics ones. :good:

@Ed_P, the one million question is: what 3.2.2 does that 4.0 doesn't (except for having decent icons when increasing taskbar size)? :)

:( ...hopefully someone else (brokenman?) will lend a hand to solve these issues. You can try to use a different icon pack and see if this solves the problem. Your help is really welcome! :good: It's amazing how many regressions are allowed into new builds. And what about all the evolution of so ma...

@donald, so you mean this. I see. These icon theme issues are really boring to solve. I must confess that I don't have much time to understand and fix something like this. Sorry.

@francois, what you mean exactly? :)
