roadie, do you use grub or grub2?
Please, look at this post grub2 menu entry (Пост Blaze #59969)
I've been using Grub 2 for the last 2-3 years, though I never use update-grub....things get messy with it. When the bootloader is working, I don't play with it, learned my lessons in that.

Why grub? is this a customized mate?


You may disregard, turns out it is customized to the extent of changing kernels to 4.15.2.....the stock kernel is working fine.

runit as init with Porteus

You can check ruinit out at http://www.smarden.org/runit which also has links to methods for various distros including Slackware. Porteus is a bit different because of the live system and needs tweaking to get going. But Void linux would show you the layout and how things work, better than I can ex...

runit as init with Porteus

Any tests of BSD-style startup scripts Vs Runit? I've never tried BSD, so don't know how it's set up. As far as startup, I found little difference between Porteus SysVinit and runit, Porteus startup times are hard to improve on. I have noticed a difference in times to get from a login prompt to the...

runit as init with Porteus

And, I'm thinking this is completely off topic for this thread. no it is not. now that I moved the posts. :D There ya go, that's fixed. As to changing inits in Porteus, I found the easiest way was to unpack 001-core.xzm and install the needed files, then repack. I've also chrooted into the unpacked...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

And you combined that with Port? How? Did you hack the initrd? Yes, it replaces the Porteus init and I found after a few attempts that hacking the initrd is not necessary. Though it's not terribly complex to convert to runit, when compared to the stock Porteus init, runit really offers little apart...

low on RAM PCs / alternatives to Porteus

I really don't see problems with using current Porteus on what are now considered low spec machines. Of course your needs dictate the specs required, but for everyday browsing, email, building xzm's, these old dinosaurs still work fine for me. Tasks like gaming and rendering animations will shut the...

Mind telling us what kind of init you use.

I use runit, not because it's a lot better than SysVinit, though it does manage services after starting them.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Ed_P, Probably completely unrelated, but I had a similar problem with installing my Porteus-Runit build to an Acer laptop. It turned out to be permissions for /home/guest. As I recall, the problem was in permissions for /home/guest/.dconf. I haven't yet tracked down what file is changing permissions...

Re: What would you use if Porteus was not available?

If Porteus was not available, Void Linux would take it's place on my machines. Void runs very well when set up under the Porteus module format, some work required to do it but it responds well. The Void install, setup like a Porteus frugal install, takes up around 215 mb with Xfce. I think that's a ...

Re: Porteus Live Mate : no browser? no package manager?

Timmi, Using USM, I searched for "midori", got a result instantly, and downloaded it. I was also prompted to download webkitgtk, which is a dependency. It then prompts you to choose whether or not you want to make a module, and in this case, merge the modules into one. Choose both options, it will d...

Re: Replacing Deleted Porteus Start-up File/Files

Is the porteus.cfg file pointing to the right kernel and initrd.xz?

I've had that error if the wrong initrd.xz was set on the command line.
