Btw I found out that the problem with the installation of Porteus on the USB was the usb itself. I had to format the USB with dd and now it works.

I'm giving up on porteus

I tried to put Electrum to run, but as a Python based program, it's a total pain in the ass. After around 20 dependencies converted to xzm modules, the program simply returns a generic 'Segmentation fault' error. Sorry, man. I don't know how to solve this. At which point it gives you error? When I ...

I'm giving up on porteus

No need to worry, man! Your English is just fine. Some misunderstanding is natural :) You're a lucky guy because Opera is my main browser, so I know exactly how it works. First things first: Opera runs out of the box in Porteus 3.2.2, so you don't need to worry about dependencies. Second: all setti...

I'm giving up on porteus

Could you provide a link to this xzm module you've created so we can check what's wrong? If the program stores all its settings/data inside its own folder, then you can try to do some changes, then copy the folder manually to a persistent unit, reboot, install the program again, overwrite this fold...

It might also help to get UNetbootin from the USM. For me it made the process of installation easier. I tried to use unetbootin from linux mint to install to USB, but it didn't work. Tried to use the porteus installer from porteus live, it didn't work. The only that worked for me was manually copyi...

I'm giving up on porteus

@overkill22, you can try to figure out which folder this program stores its settings/data (usually inside /home/guest/.config), and then copying this folder to your usbStick/porteus/rootcopy though the script /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown (which is automatically called during reboot/shutdown). I can ...

I'm giving up on porteus

It has been 3 days now I'm trying to work out and understand how Porteus works, but it seems to be impossible to me to make it works. I read the guides, followed every step and had every time different results. I have now one bootable USB that I've created via copying the files into the formatted US...

Saving changes doesn't work

Maybe I can ask here without opening another topic: I need to have a live OS with one program installed, and no network connection. It means that I have to uninstall anything that could possibly recognise the wifi and bluetooth. I managed to have a "dirty" version of the OS with the program installe...

Saving changes doesn't work

Hi guys, I discovered this distro recently and I'm trying to see if it fits my need. I need to have a distro that runs live where I can save some files and install a couple of programs. I followed the tutorials to install Porteus on a USB flash drive. Using my laptop with another linux distro, I cop...
