Re: How To Get Syslinux To Boot OS On Another Partition (Sol

menu.lst not menu1.lst. I thought you purposely change it to menu1.lst instead of menu.lst. I tried with both, but if it work for you must be my syntax or typing error. Yes, I have a menu.lst taken from my usual grub installation. @ Francois. Yes I saw you link for the grub extra sometime ago. The ...

Re: How To Get Syslinux To Boot OS On Another Partition (Sol

Grub> Seem it can't find the menu1.lst, Maybe I got some of the syntax wrong? (b) Plop Boot Manager +Grub 0.97 (Worked) All the while I'm aware that Plop can boo...

Re: How To Get Syslinux To Boot OS On Another Partition

Thanks. "Syslinux cannot access files from partitions other than its own." I had a suspicion is something like this. Not a big issue as the spare os is mainly to save the trouble of digging for my livecd for any rescue. Anyway I will try with grub4dos as you suggested. It sound to be the easiest as ...

How To Get Syslinux To Boot OS On Another Partition (Solved)

I installed Porteus 3,1 KDE 32 bit on my laptop's hard disk in /mnt/sda2 using Porteus Installer, which I gather is using syslinux. Installation went well. I edit porteus.cfg to add slaxremixv09 also in /mnt/sda2. I'm not familiar with syslinux as I usually use Grub or Grub4dos. How do I get syslinu...

Re: VLC 2.x for Porteus 2.1

"Nice to see you drop by jcosh."
I drop by quite often (sometimes to look for modules to pinch) but since I don't really use Porteus beyond testing , I don;t post or log in.

Re: VLC 2.x for Porteus 2.1

"vlc is able to start but cannot play videos, says " codecs are missing "" I am taking a blind shot here as I am a slax remix 9 / slax 7 user rather than Porteus. I had made slax 7 module for vlc from 2.05 to 2.08 using alienbob txz. (http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/vlc/pkg/14.0/) All wi...

Re: Scanning and recognition documents

I saw your thread on simple scan and I think I tried to make a slax 6 or slax 7 , but failed some where along the line ?. Perhaps I will try again. Xsane is not really that complex if you ignored all the options and sticks to a few basic and just accept the default for most options. Most of the time...

Re: Scanning and recognition documents

Thanks for the module . I am not using it directly as I am using Slax 7 (actually Porteus xzm usually works with Slax 7 just by renaming the extension to sb). I never heard of Cuneiform or Yagf before. Since I already have Xsane+Sane and Poppler , I just need Yagf ,Cuneiform and I seem to need Image...

Re: drag N drop uncompress files GUI

The 1st version works with Slax 7 . I haven't tried the second version yet , but I would expect it to work as well. Its good to be able to " borrow" stuffs from Porteus as the is a dearth of "user friendly modules" in Slax 7. :) Think of the Giant Porteus Logo as advertising in lieu of payment / con...
