Uefi and porteus 3.0

A new way to convert MBR to GPT!! And no data lost. Linux is sooo much easier than this windows tool. @n0ctilucient I think they are talking about a symlink on the real file system on the installation media. The symlink you're talking about is different. The filesystem doesn't even exist at boot ti...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

I was using the gnome-mpv front end. Looks like some recent activity on their github too. The dependencies are?
glib >= 2.44
gtk >= 3.18[2]
mpv >= 0.27
epoxy
lua (optional)
youtube-dl (optional)

It's the only one that will go with xfce.

On Screen Keyboard

Are you using the kiosk version of Porteus? If so try posting in the kiosk section where you will be more likely to get help.

porteus 4.0 x86 and my ppp0 issue

For testing I suggest you remove all your extra modules and only boot in fresh mode with only the modules in the base folder. You have MANY quite unnecessary modules loading. Once you have booted with a fresh Porteus-v4.0 install can you check the output of this command (with dongle plugged in) ls /...

prevent mounting of local disks

Hi Wolfgang. Yes there is. With the cheatcodes you can do this. Please take a look at the FAQ document in the menu, on the installation media in the docs folder or on our website. The cheatcode is nohd or noauto depending which suits your needs. Cheatcodes should be placed in the porteus.cfg file, o...

Compiling tactics...

The second one is OK but the first one is not interesting at all. It's five years old and talking about compiling flags.

Olá Mr Tank.

Can you please generate a system information dump using the Porteus Settings Centre?
This will help identify the problem.

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.

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.
