irc chat for porteus #porteuslinux on freenode

Oh, missed this one... Actually IRC is a properly defined protocol. Any client understanding/talking such protocol would be of course preferred... One could think a client the equivalent of a ´app´. Advertising the existence of a IRC channel is a recommendable initiative. Thanks @ncmprhnsbl for the ...

setting hostname breaks X login in porteus4.0

A missing hostname binary prevents the system initialization scripts to ´properly set hostname´ for the system during the init phase. Proof? All the /var/log/* logs still are reporting ´porteus´ as their reporting hostname, even after /etc/HOSTNAME and /etc/hosts have been altered with a ´host-X´ ar...

it seem that whatever is listed in /etc/fstab
problem seems related to having /etc/fstab being ´recreated on the fly´
one cannot edit /etc/fstab (according to /etc/fstab itself)

Question: what is the rationale behind automounting swap/solaris, type 82 partition

Hello, I'm still new to Porteus, could not think of a better place to ask. QUESTION: Why ANY existing partitions on ANY existing devices marked as ´type 82´ should be automagically considered for automounting (normal boot, graphical, possibly also other boots). In graphical boot: a) I fail to see a ...

Android device connection via USB

I was interested in this topic, I'd like to ask also if anyone with an android phone could please plug it and tell what happens on your Porteus 4.0? I can't believe it's not plug-n-play already in 2019. I just grabbed an USB cable and plugged phone into my freshly installed Porteus-4.0 system... I d...

Ok. Will investigate what that means, ncmprhnsbl , . I will say this against my own interest to discuss further, since this was something of a ´new to porteus´ issue. For every question, expect an answer that will spawn a new question This can be considered as ´closed/solved' from a strict ´topic´ p...
