Porteus linux on the net or on the waves of the web

How much does Pek use? My guess it's 66% less than Openbox.

Uefi and porteus 3.0

system related files like drivers it wouldn't Anything might work as long as the data stays in module form or when unpacked in ext4. However... if a module is opened in FAT32 there is always a possibility of breakage. It seems the safest option is to boot install (and unpack/repack modules) in a ex...

Uefi and porteus 3.0

I think they are talking about a symlink on the real file system Apologies... for my mangled statement. It seems he is interested in installing Porteus to a FAT32 flash drive. Unetbootin will do that w/ no damage to Porteus. He can also using Gparted... install to ext4 (more secure) and still use F...

SmartiPi...

Ok... I finally have the SmartiPi powered up. Alright... I'm getting a tty error @ boot. :wall: This is the mitigation (I'm going w/ "enable_uart=1")... https://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/7024 The sad truth is... Porteus is woefully insecure in "realtime" because it lacks glibc Stack buffer overflo...

Application containment...

Xpra is... a means of having "persistent remote application" support for X11 applications atop an X.Org Server. This allows for X applications to live on even if the connection to the server has been dropped. - https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTQzOTk Basically... it's a secure X...

SmartiPi...

Assembling the SmartPi is relatively simple.

Pls Note: the following...

Make sure to connect the supplied "Y" power
adapter to the input on the Pi and the display.

Also... attach the white ribbon extender
(for the display) w/ the label down .

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

no DVD-menu
One of the downsides of not using Xine.

However, if you have an MPV search bar... it looks like you're in business :happy62:

Yes... I know Xine is ugly (there is a Xine Gtk frontend).

But Xine is also very versatile.

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

MPV does not use the libdvdcss That's why I use Xine ... http://slakfinder.org/show.php?pkg=1406632 In the US libdvdcss is legal under Fair use law. Basically that means... you have permission to decode (an display privately and/or copy) your property only. So it is " Bootleg recording " and " Thef...

The problem with FAT32 is that it doesn't support symlinks
My symlink strategy is...
using /tmp (for root syms) or /home/guest (for guest syms)
then I make a sym directory module in those respective folders.

Once you make a module it will not break the symlink(s) when you copy it to FAT32.

Does Unetbootin work with NTFS + UEFI?
You mentioned FAT32... it works with that.
Ntfs/UEFI I'm not sure. But you can try it.
