Re: Why can't I see $1?

Ed_P,

I know absolutely nothing about what you are doing, however, on the first "echo" line of the script, the second PRESENTER has only one "S".

That's about the extent of my knowledge :-)

Re: USM Unified Slackware Package Manager

@brokenman, You know the fella that did the review perhaps was in a hurry or something. francois has made a good point about an activation probe. Most distro's do an automatic install after a download, but we don't. I would suggest giving a day or so of thought to how you wish to word any instructio...

Re: DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 575, 8 September 2014 - Porteu

FYI +

Allow some time for a stroll through the comments (at the bottom) of this DistroWatch Weekly and find some additional praise for Porteus.

In addition the "comments" are full of "systemd" arguments and links.

Re: Porteus Pantheon Edition

@ donald,

Right on, I agree 100% about "systemd"!

Red Hat's effort to become the de facto "Microsoft" of "Linux"

As far as Pantheon goes, it looks like "wread" and "brokenman" have the correct idea.

Re: Abiword = 315 MB ?

Please allow me to reply to myself :-) It occurred to me that my initial post in this thread may be misinterpreted as being facetious or ill intended. It most certainly was not posted to be taken that way. I was indeed making a Porteus flash drive for a friend, and I was downloading some packages vi...

Abiword = 315 MB ?

I'm working on a usb stick for a friend. Using Porteus 3 LXDE 32 bit. Have updated USM and all databases therein. In trying to install Abiword the search returned 3 package options (slacky, salix, and ponce) in varying sizes. The search also returned an Abiword-docs pkg. I selected the pkg from ponc...

Boot a USB Porteus flash drive in a VirtualBox

I understand Oracle does not allow USB boots with VirtualBox. (Y/N?) Has anyone booted a USB Porteus flash drive in a VirtualBox?

Re: USM for Slackware 14.1 proper

roadie, I'm sure you're correct about the psu & gnsu. I just remember the recent ssh problem and him directing folks to the PSU mirror for the immediate patch. The space was most likely an accident. I'll look into psu & gnsu sometime soon. Right now I'm beat and sleepy. Thanks for your kind words, S...
