Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

BTW Vaccinations are free to all. No $$ involved. "Free cheese has only in a mouse trap" Eastern adage Does free mean not good for your health? "Free v@cc!ne has only in a trap of laboratory mice" Porteus is free, slackware is free, linux is free. Does that mean that the linux OS has no value? Wate...

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

Here in Québec, we have more than 70% with a first dose, and over 50% with their second dose. And they are now going with an incentive with lottery prizes of good value to encourage the younger and recalcitrant persons. This summer we are regaining almost normal life.

And cheers to mr Pasteur. :beer:

crashed save.dat again

Hello Bob1414:
Why don't you simply work with linux file system. This way no need for save.dat container and the saved information will expand at will. :)

usm error

@beny:
Thanks for the follow-up. I am attracted to Aporteus. Will surely do at some point. Porteus 4.2 is quite stable for my use. And I might try nemesis too. I like the speed of nemesis.

@Ed:
Donald's trick is the solution for me.

Thanks.

copy2ram: is it for every distribution or livecd

Hello raja, I have followed the development of debiandog. You seem to have done it too. You see a lot more possibilities than I do. Thanks for the tip. Have you seen tome's ubuntu version of porteus?

copy2ram: is it for every distribution or livecd

I understand that copy2ram will boost a system speed, the main disadvantage being the llonger time needed to boot into RAM. Some distributions like debian do not have a copy2ram option. Is there a turnaround. For example, while I would be happy to provide an openplotter porteus adaptation of this ma...
