Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

As I said, the 'rootcopy' folder in the ISO only has guest permission.
Please let me know which ISO you downloaded. rootcopy folder should be owned by root in all ISOs. Also please generate a system information dump using Porteus Settings Centre and upload for us to view.

Porteus-LXDE-v4.0-i586.iso won't run

If that patch has been pushed to mainline then perhaps you could try a newer kernel from our server to see if it solves the problem.

Splash Screen Stays Up

Live Linux distros are bootable when copied to a usb drive but Porteus is not a live distro. Why do you say that? I did indeed neglect to run isohybrid against our ISO files. This would make them bootable using your dd method. If you already used dd on your USB you may need to nuke it and start aga...

x86_64 for non english speakers the nls files should be in /usr/lib64/locales
the fr-core_locales.xzm put them in /usr/lib/locale
Did you use the language settings tool in Porteus? It should move everything into the correct /usr/lib64/locales path.

Porteus Kernel Builder

I did it about ten years ago. Back then it was viable, although very small gains were made. Considering hardware today the gain would be minimal, almost imperceivable.

Version 4.0 questions

Something is certainly wrong with your install. wpa_supplicant and pulseaudio are both included in the ISO. Can you explain your setup a little more?
