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? Quick Ubuntu based Porteus (x64) - UPortabilizer ;) According to tome and to brokenman, it would be...

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...

slpkg : package builder (manager) linux

Anyone has some bundles for slpkg for porteus version 4.0 and 5.0? It would be real handy. It seems that I have it all wrong. root@porteus:~# slpkg update Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/slpkg", line 35, in <module> from slpkg.main import main ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '...

@beny: There must be a way to remove slacky from the code. Isn´t it? I have looked the error messages and they are not present in the /usr/bin/usm script file.

@minions: Maybe you could have a look at a porteus lover thread: Donated after day two of honeymoon Porteus might simply be not for you. Though I am usually very nice with newcomers on this forum, I really don't feel like it when I read your comments. Read the reviews on distrowatch, you might recon...
