Re: [HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

blacklist.xzm and nvidia.tar.bz2 are the same. Maybe merging the final driver nvidia.xzm and blacklist.xzm would be the best thing to do, thus blacklisting included in the driver. What do you think?

Re: [HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

In your howto you propose nvidia.tar.bz2 which include /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf but you do nothing with it (does it go with nvidia.sh?): Notice that /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf porteus stock is already set to: # generated by nvidia-installer bla...

porteus and windows 10: locked files ntfs and no fat32

I am more often on windows these days because of software availability. I was surprise to realize that windows 10 could not see fat32 partitions. Is it the end of fat32?
