Re: Porteus 32-bit v09 kernel modifications

maybe i am wrong but you can use no hd cheatcode to hidden the hard disk and you don't surf into it,i am not shure if work on porteus,but you can try Yeah, I tried the cheatcode, and that's nice, the only issue is that you only need to hit "tab" during boot, and you can remove it if you want. I'm n...

Inserting a modified kernel into Porteus

I'm running v09 32-bit, and I've downloaded the 2.6.37 kernel (which uname tells me Porteus is running), I copied Porteus' porteus.config file, modified it via "make menuconfig", and compiled the kernel. Now that it's compiled, how do I use it on my porteus live-cd? Should I dir2lzm the entire kerne...

Re: Porteus 32-bit v09 kernel modifications

but "uname" says 2.6.37 I would guess that the error you get comes from removing file system support. I've never attempted to remove them. You will most certainly need fuse & aufs (union) and i would also leave at least one other such as ext3. I think you could disable the mounting of file systems,...

Porteus 32-bit v09 kernel modifications

First off, I'm willing to move to "rc2" if it makes a difference, my only marriage to v09 is that I have some modules for it already. In light of my other posts regarding removing HDD mounting functionality (http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=573), as well as a goal to remove network devi...

Re: Wireshark for Porteus v09

Yeah, I'm running v09 for now. I might switch later, but right now VMware is working in v09, but not in rc2, that's what's holding me back.

I just can't believe no one has built a v09 module for wireshark.

Re: Restricting HDD Mounting

Sorry, I was think about another subject. That was my fault. I suggest, you make a chmod on the "mount" binaries to make a restriction for any other users than root. I like the idea of fanthom with "mount" binaries. I'd like to restrict even root, at least by default. If they add their own modules,...

Re: Restricting HDD Mounting

Do you want to disable the internet connection from your custom LIVE-CD ? And what is the manifest file? It is a file when there is all kernel modules. It is a list of all kernel modules (not built in). Well, I do, but I don't think that was mentioned in this thread. This thread is concerned with r...

The "net" folder contains HDD drivers?? And what is the manifest file?

Re: Restricting HDD Mounting

Is there any way to modify any part of the kernel.lzm to reflect similar changes without having to compile a whole new kernel? By the way, that re-compile tutorial is nice, and I'll definitely look into it, but where is the stuff I need to change to remove support for certain filesystems, and which ...

Wireshark for Porteus v09

I haven't seen a wireshark module around, but I'm certain one might exist. Anybody have one?

Re: Restricting HDD Mounting

What exactly is your goal in this? Do you want it setup so no external drives can be mounted by a user, including USB, HD and crdrom? By "Granted, drives aren't mounting properly, the command is still accessible." I assume the drive doesn't get mounted and you get the "Only root can do that" messag...

Re: rootcopy permissions problem

Yep, if it's in the guest folder, guest must own it. I see this error whenever a guest folder has incorrect permissions. Unpack each module with a guest folder and make sure they have correct perms, then repack and rebuild. Double check your rootcopy content too. Ok, I think I see what you're sayin...

Re: rootcopy permissions problem

Ensure you have chown -R guest:guest for the guest folders in ALL modules. 004-kde/home/guest/.kde3/share/config/ksmserverrcroot ... check in there for any root references. This will prevent guest from being able to write too. Would you please elaborate for me a little? I only have a few modules, w...

[SOLVED] rootcopy permissions problem

I have a customized live-cd of v09, x86. The live-cd logs a "guest" user in by default. A VMware Workstation 7 module is included. I'm trying to copy a virtual machine into porteus/rootcopy with a directory structure of "/home/guest/vmware/'vmname' ". I copy the virtual machine directory tree into p...

Re: Restricting HDD Mounting

Delete the symlink /sbin/mount ... move /bin/mount to /sbin/mount ... make a symlink /bin/mount pointing to /sbin/mount. Now normal users should get a "Only root can do that!" message ... Or just open the machine and remove the hard drive if it is an option! I used the nohd cheatcode, and I've made...
