Save or not at shutdown - the real possibility of choice

Only I am sure the an average user does not even notice this message, and even he notices, he should be very vigilant and fast to be able to make a good decision. If the user didn't open the configuration file and type in the cheatcode to save on exit then the 3 second message wouldn't appear. This...

make firmware_install on kernel linux-4.14.34

Firmware was removed from the kernel source and is now handled by the distro packages. You can get all the firmware in the kernel-firmware slackware package.

Lxde DE Module

It's the file system that is read-only as is reported in the above output. mount -o loop /path/to/module.xzm /mnt/loop mount -o loop /path/to/savefile.dat /mnt/loop You will get two different results with the above commands. One writable and o...

I guess this is now a general problem in all porteus scripts that check /proc/cmdline.
I the next release you may now check the single file /etc/bootcmd.cfg

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

I understand the concept but why not have the lines in linuxrc copy all the cheatcodes from the porteus-v4.0-$ARCH.cfg file into the /proc/cmdline file when booting Perhaps not. /proc/cmdline is a process file. It's not writable even as root during boot and it is used to communicate with the kernel...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

cp /etc/bootcmd.cfg /proc/cmdline work?
No. No. Absolutely not. This is a process file created every boot. I've put a few lines in linuxrc to copy all used cheatcodes from both /proc/cmdline and the porteus-v4.0-$ARCH.cfg file into a single config file so all scripts can just check one file.
