Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

As for sharing files att store them in a folder on a FAT32 drive, or NTFS. Porteus and Windows will both be able to access them with a whole lot less overhead, and effort. I want to share something from "computer-1" to "computer-2" OVER THE NETWORK. Thus I wanted windows network shares (if WINE cou...

Re: Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

OK now that I got WINE to run thanks to the "wine-1.9.16-x64-3.2-GeckoMono-2.xzm" file .... I wonder if I can get network shares right. I wanted to share one/several directories so my windows machine in the same local network would copy files over wine, but it seems I don't get this right. I tried t...

Getting WINE to run on latest Porteus 4 / 64bit?

Hello, I know it sounds odd, but somehow I am not sure how to get WINE (Windows Emulator) to run correctly when using the latest Porteus 4 / 64bit. I used "usm" to search for Wine. -> I found the package -> I installed it and made a module, using "usm" -> it does not work, it is not a 64-bit ELF. Th...

32bit "ghost" executable with porteus 3.2.2 64bit?

Hello, I have a very old but good backup software called "Norton Ghost 11.5/Linux" which I would like to use with Porteus 3.2.2/64 bit on an old PC (Intel Q6600, 8GB Ram, MSI Neo3-FR Mobo). Do you know what libraries or addons I need to get this old 32bit-executable to start? It did work fine with p...

Re: suspected timezone mismatch in /etc mouting on boot

You guys are very off topic.
Now, is this a confirmed bug in Porteus 3.0/64bit or not?
Has anyone noticed this timezone bug or not ?
And how to fix this bug?

suspected timezone mismatch in /etc mouting on boot

Hi, I have a weird problem with my Porteus USB stick. I notice that in /var/log/messages, the time is wrong, especially at booting. For example: root@rechner:/var/log# less messages Aug 1 09:37:13 rechner syslogd 1.5.0: restart. Aug 1 09:37:14 rechner kernel: klogd 1.5.0, log source = /proc/kmsg sta...

Re: running screen in rc.d/rc.local cannot be resumed

I found the solution !!!!! At startup, the "HOME" Variable is not properly defined! I had to add to my rc.local script the following line: export HOME="/root" and then it worked, beautifully!!!! Hint: If you have a directory called /.screen instead of /root/.screen you have a clue that you need to s...

running screen in rc.d/rc.local cannot be resumed

Hello, I have modded my porteus a bit so my startscript suits my needs. Thus: In /mnt/sdh1/porteus/rootcopy/etc/rc.d/rc.local I have my own commands: /usr/bin/chmod 777 /root/VPNS/test.sh /usr/bin/screen -dmS startup-openvpn /root/VPNS/test.sh So it starts a VPN connection at every reboot automatica...

Re: LAzarus 1.0.10 + FreePascal 2.6.2 + FPC Source 2.6.2

Can you make an update to Lazarus 1.6rc2 and FPC 3.0.0 + FPC src 3.0.0 ?
By the way, your files are already gone - they cannot be downloaded anymore.

Hello, I just got to know that the company Paragon just released NTFS+HFS for Linux 9.0. It installs like a charm. However, now I want to use it when booting up and when mounting all NTFS-drives at bootup. The compiling/install script produces some files, most notably 2 kernel modules and one .so fi...
