Cheatcodes: interesting to see under the hood.

Cheatcodes in porteus are really handy when you boot up your system:

I just used guiexec to start with dual display at bootup.

Great! :D

Nemesis Mate

@all:
I think that we never had nemesis systemd. We moved to artix when archlinux became systemd. So the artix version is what we are looking for.

@jack:
artix or archlinux is a rolling distribution. There is no way to work with an old version of one or the other.

Eastern day time in north america

Follow-up:
It did fixed the problem. I had to boot into win 10 after correcting the bios time setting. And then adjusting the clock for the right time zone under porteus 4.x, it displays the right time on my xfce time icon.

Thanks to all.

Eastern day time in north america

Hello beny. Thanks for the suggestion. I realised that my bios was set at the wrong hour.

But this for now does not fix the problem.

But also we are still washing our hands an wearing the masks and keeping a 1 m distance. The exception is outdoor. The numbers are really good in the hospitals. Please everyone, stop ...

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:
