Porteus v5.0rc1 problems

@Ed_P don't do that. You uncommented slackware-13.37 which was even before slackware-14. Find another current mirror. @nanZor you can invoke a su GUI by using pkexec. Even better use our own script. /opt/porteus-scripts/org/psu /usr/bin/gparted (psu is porteus su) Please be aware that the kernel and...

Porteus to Micro-SD-CARD boot - easy!

A few of the Intel Computesticks allow for booting from the micro-sd-card slot, (they actually show up as hard drives in the bios), and this little adapter trick made doing a bootable sd-card very easy.
Thanks. I have one of these and I hadn't thought of that.

Re: porteus and windows 10: locked files ntfs and no fat32

Also, from porteus root mode all the windows 10 files are locked. I've also seen this. Shouldn't be too hard to overcome. No doubt it is because of fast boot or essentially a hibernation file. If mount finds a hibernation file it will not mount rw. I recall a force option worked when I faced this is...

Re: [SOLVED]Can't find wifi on Qualcomm Atheros Device

I just checked after running my kernel firmware strip and the firmware for /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0 is still present. Should be OK for next release. Please report any firmwares that are missing during bug reports. I can always add them back in. Thanks.
