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

mloop is just a script to ease mounting of file systems. 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.

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

Thanks jssouza,

I know there are many cheatcodes that won`t work. It`s a matter of me tracking them all down and adding the extra check. Thanks for the list.

Porteus - USM error

I know SourceForge is under a DoS attack but I thought all the Slackware files were stored on the mirrors' sites. LIBS.TXT.gz is not a slackware file. It's the file that slackware does not have that USM creates in order to know dependencies. It is stored on sourceforge. I had assumed sourceforge wo...

Retpoline?

The entire basis of modern day parallel computing has been exploited. This is not the end of 'spectre like' attack vectors.

LXDE (help)

For those interested, some time ago I added: pkexec-add-application

This little script adds apps to pkexec.
