Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

Another nit: There is no linux executable for syslinux in /boot/syslinux, so you can't boot the iso and use it to make a bootable FAT drive. In the past, I have used Slax to unpack the iso, and I have run Porteus extlinux from Slax to make a bootable flash drive; making this 32 bit executables was a...

Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

Thanks for help with this fanthom, I think I get it now, I was surprised that I seemed to create a shutdown order problem, now I'm only surprised that I've been a bit slow... :%) I've been using rc2 extensively without trouble, here's the only other nits I've seen: Network manager never remembers th...

Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

i think you are refering to a padlock_sha.ko (...) syslog is not started yet Yes, that's it. Thanks for info. the filesystem reports the free space of the container's filesystem rather than the free space of the container. Here I misspoke, what I am seeing is the free space of the file system of th...

Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

I've been doing a bunch of testing of the LUKS encrypted container, with bad results. The luks mount in rc.S has some scary messages, the mount actually seems to work but though I see the decrypted contents of the luks container, the filesystem reports the free space of the container's filesystem ra...

Re: Thinking about a universal UUID mount

Fanthom, your idea looks good, right on. (I'm deleting a mistaken bug report here regarding apparent size of a LUKS container...) Posted after 2 hours 40 minutes 39 seconds: Here's a shell dump of how I moved a user's directory from /home to an encrypted LUKS container: # NOTE: my /tmp is a big plac...

Thinking about a universal UUID mount

I'm looking at the implementation of magic folders with LUKS container introduced in rc2. What I want is to mount a container on (UUID identified media) in folders.cfg But the device is mounted in different locations on different computers, it could be /mnt/sdb1, /mnt/sdc1. If I run porteus as copy2...

Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

I just did some testing, the "W520 Ricoh firewire bug filling syslog" was fixed with rc2. In rc1, syslog filled at 1.5 MB/s with endless May 17 10:18:04 (none) kernel: [ 31.377357] D0] fault addr fffff000 May 17 10:18:04 (none) kernel: [ 31.377366] DMAR:[fault r0] fault addr fffff000 May 17 10:18:04...

Re: Porteus v1.2 rc2 x86_64 is ready for testing!

These RC's have been excellent. Useful and really good, totally stable. My Porteus environment is almost the same as my Kubuntu environment, I find this amazing but it's really easy for a Slax user. I appreciate the current software stack and device support, the design is right and the details are i...

Re: tmpfs for /tmp and /var/tmp folders with 'changes=' chea

I hope I'm not beating a dead thread with obvious info but... I think the concept of /var/tmp is a bit odd on a live CD; most of the time I want all new state gone after a reboot. In a normal distro, you can expect that /var/tmp is cleaned sanely by a cron job rather than a reboot event, but I doubt...

Thanks to porteus developers

I have been awaiting the 1.0 release with the details sorted out, and my first impression is that porteus developers continue to get things right. The devs have done so much excellent work, y'all get my nomination for most inspired linux tool. I think you guys hit a home run.

Thank you!

Re: Forum bugs

Forum page is
http://www.forum.porteus.org/
but would be cleaner as:
http://forum.porteus.org/

And DNS is the same.

I just noticed that after posting I am surfing around on:
http://forum.porteus.org/index.php

Cool that it works, but funky that it requires DNS transmutation.

You guys are the best.

Re: Just To Say Hi

Hi all, happy to join you all here. Slax style architecture is clearly a wave of the future and I'm glad to be here and hopefully will be able to contribute to the utility of this project. I'm glad this project has been moved to its own site, we all love Slax but the prodigal daughter is her own bei...
