Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

The combined package size of a tcl/tk I believe is just south of 5mb. Yes that's true, but where do we stop? Open a console and run: usm -d You will find many more missing dependencies. So the decision to be made is, where is the balance of size and usability? Do we build for developers, GUI users,...

Google-earth-pro-7.3.0.3827 for Porteus

Thanks Wread, Please guys, keep non official Porteus posts out of the mainstream forum. I don't want this to turn into a mess. For example post about APorteus ONLY in the Aporteus thread. Post about Nemesis ONLY in the nemesis thread. In this one thread we have three different variations of the offi...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

Hi brokenman... I can't seem to locate the Python 2 deps tcl/tk in 001-core.xzm... You can download them via usm or the getpkg script: getpkg tcl @burdi01 Updates will be tested and then pushed via two channels. One will be a new ISO and the other will be base module updates via the update-porteus ...

How all this fits

When I first started nemesis the idea was to ease the workload and create a Porteus with a much wider pasture of packages available. There were questions as to what would happen to slackware based Porteus. I decided to create a slackware-current version of Porteus that could be updated easily so as ...

Fix 3 Icons Archive Manager

Install a very comprehensive icon set and apply it. Something like adwaita-icon-theme usually has all icons. Then open the same window and see what the icons are. Then look for the icon in the iconset to get the name. Copy them into your current install.

Google-earth-pro-7.3.0.3827 for Porteus

Thanks Wread. I always keep a copy of GE handy. When I activated this one it killed the console and removed all icons and menu items from my menu. When I click the word in the menu it didnt start anything (all icons are gone now) and running from a terminal was missing at least: error while loading ...

Adding a user to a group

You need to add the groups and users as root.
You need to check the groups as guest.

05-devel.xzm

You're right, I didn't look close enough at your list. ncmprhnsbl is right, all header files are removed from the base modules and put into the 05_devel module. Why aren't you just using the official 05_devel module?

Search for "kernel" in current64 packages. You should find the slackware kernel headers package.

PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts" Now because you are logged in as guest, guest has access to this path. Root doesn't have this path b...

Intel processors with a security bug

Yes this is the correct output. The previous was: date = 2017-01-xx You'll now be protected against one vector of spectre2. Keep a close eye on updates because we still need to mitigate other areas. IBRS support or retpoline options in the kernel should be coming soon. The latter will require a new ...
