Porteus linux on the net or on the waves of the web

a bit not accurate though, porteus should branch off slax(which itself should show a rightangle turn into debian territory recently) IKR. I did not want to say so since I wanted someone else to spot that inaccuracy. :happy62: Maybe contact the ones who made it and tell them about it? Or… do we just...

Xorg distord desktop on VIA Technologies, Inc. VX900 Graphics

Is your machine capable of running a live OS from a CD or from a DVD? Due to the known capabilities in hardware debugging, I recommend you start your machine with a different Linux - with the most recent Knoppix. https://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html Hopefully this gives you more info about ...

Does irony translate well into email or forum posts?

Most people in the world understand what a smiling face means, whether in a forum posting or in person. You obviously don't. Not much more I can do to help you. :( A smiling face usually means "I am friendly towards you" , that is what almost all humans would agree on. It not translates for 100% ce...

trying to setup grub2 for Porteus Mate

Well, if you have only one /32bit_v30/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz file on your system you could replace your set root with: search -f /32bit_v30/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz --set=root But... that would mean the boot process would look in all partitions for /32bit_v30/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz, and not only on hd0,...

Howto. Copy disk as iso on hdd with k9copy and play with media player

Thank you for the informations. But I stopped the action. Creating k9copy for Xfce is too difficult for me; too many dependencies. Suggestion: Set up a Porteus KDE just for this task. You could leave out stuff you not need, Like the browser, or when it comes in extra module, games, but me thinks KD...
