2021 Updated Nemesis Base Modules

ncmp, With new xtra.xzm, booting is prolonged. Hangs for a minute or more at "runlevels" and "writing UTC time", though ultimately it boots to desktop. With regular nemisis, when pman makes an application and writes to module folder, the system refuses to boot to desktop as X fails with, guest autom...

Porteus Kernel Builder

Of late, new kernels fail to boot due to known AUFS problem. (absence of Junjiro Okajima). I feel, still his new offer stabilizes, we can do away with kernel updates . New kernel does not bring any immediate benefits. I have gone back to Porteus-5.4.85. Also, Debian config increases file size due to...

Porteus wifi not working realtek 8821ce Lenovo Laptop

Please check , dmesg and lspci to find out if realtek 8821ce has been found and listed . If yes, look for the correct firmware and add to /lib/firmware.

If not, compile and load driver from this source..

Porteus Kernel Builder

I don think there will be any noticeable speed boost. As discussed long ago , Porteus boots to Desktop in 12 seconds(AUFS), and 10 seconds with Nekoś overlay and with application modules compressed with zstd. If you see dmesg, Kernel completes its main job in under 2 seconds further delay of 4-7 sec...

Memory usage

Normally,I don't have a look at the memory usage. Today, I was using Porteus-5.0rc2 and surprised to notice the following.. Vivaldi-3.2.1967.41 (Stable channel) (64-bit) - 1150.4 MB with one tab open; XFCE-4.16 - 454.2 MB Vivaldi has packed lots of " field trail handles" to help in their development...

I could get the latest GLRP-1.5 working in Porteus-5.0rc2-x86_64. The recent one has done away with KDE's Phonon framework. All required QT5 libraries are inbuilt. I have installed Gstreamer-1.18 with all required plugins. Comes with a new Stations list. An older version GLRP-1.6 with Phonon back en...

2020 Updated Nemesis Base Modules

In future please include Netsurf Browser in 'base' both in Nemisis and Porteus. I think no browser should be pre-selected for any of our OS, be it nemesis or Porteus, unlike e.g. lynx or links. *Besides, having the need to update a ISO to add ones choice in browser is a good learning experience for...

Where I can download peebee config?
I think kernel-5.9.1 by peebee, a Debian stuff has got the file /proc/config.gz in it.
