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 understand the concept but why not have the lines in linuxrc copy all the cheatcodes from the porteus-v4.0-$ARCH.cfg file into the /proc/cmdline file when booting Perhaps not. /proc/cmdline is a process file. It's not writable even as root during boot and it is used to communicate with the kernel...
No. No. Absolutely not. This is a process file created every boot. I've put a few lines in linuxrc to copy all used cheatcodes from both /proc/cmdline and the porteus-v4.0-$ARCH.cfg file into a single config file so all scripts can just check one file.cp /etc/bootcmd.cfg /proc/cmdline work?

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...

Yes retpoline aware gcc is only a very recent thing in slackware. It is very possible that many modules were not compiled with it. The GCC version in Porteus-4.0+ is retpoline aware and I would imagine that any slackware kernel-firmware package after the release of Porteus-4.0 would also have been c...
