Re: What Makes save.dat File Grow? There A "Prune" App For I

Happy New Year to you also Jim. My save.dat file is 128MB and I watch it's size by doing these steps (from my Notes file): # View space usage of porteussave.dat file ** With changes= cheatcode not used su toor mloop /mnt/sda6/porteussave.dat du -sh /mnt/loop # Show the amount used - OR - df -h /mnt/...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

X - Have a look at http://www.x.org/archive/X11R6.8.0/doc/Xorg.1.html to refresh your mem ?? I looked and it sounds like a Linux server system. How does it relate to Porteus?? Logs: most standards compliant systems would put them under /var/log Ok. Thank you. CDs: what's wrong with them? Believe it...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

Pressing CTLT-ALT-F2 while already running a full desktop env simply tells the system to open a new instance. You are NOT exiting, but switching. In simple words: you are effectively running two more or less independent sessions. There's literally no limit to the number of sessions one can start, o...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

@phhpro While I am sure you know much more about Linux than I do, I do know what works, or not, on my system. I boot to the RazorQT desktop. I press ctrl+alt+f7 and nothing happens. I press ctrl+alt+f2 and I exit the desktop and enter a terminal window. I enter root, toor and startx and I am back at...

Just following the advice given here: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=2212&start=15#p18076

And startx closes it also. :)

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

1) Boot into text mode (with changes= cheatcode functioning). Ok. I suspect the noauto cheatcode will do that for me. 2) type: startx 2> /home/guest/mylog.log And I have found that once booted ctrl+alt+F2 will allow me to resignon as guest and issue the startx command you showed. My next terminal m...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

At the menu screen select the 'textmode' and then hit the TAB button. You can add your changes=/path/to/changes in there. Or edit the porteus.cfg file if you are not botting from an ISO. I don't have a menu when I boot Porteus, I go directly to startx with 2.1 regardless of which boot option I choo...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

Actually the msgs I'm more concerned about are the ones shown in this blurry photo. http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/5353/5df8.jpg It seems that Porteus is erring out constantly. 1) Boot into text mode (with changes= cheatcode functioning). Is there a cheatcode to do that? I'll check myself later ...

Re: How to see terminal screen msgs

Wow!! Thanks guys for all the suggestions. :good: While I am somewhat concerned about the Fatal error msg I'm also concerned why there are so many other msgs seemingly related to what I have been doing in GUI mode. All this text msg writing has got to have an impact on performance. I don't recall th...

How to see terminal screen msgs

When I shutdown the screen is always full of text. How do I view this text prior to shutting down?? The only way I've found is with a camera and as you can see it's not a good option. http://img845.imageshack.us/img845/7678/xjei.jpg I can see some kind of a Fatal error msg near the bottom which I wo...

Re: Cannot boot to original OS from HDD

I think I recall this problem on a link awhile back, the solution was to remove the "/" at the end of the URL The URL works fine with or without the "/" at the end but the url tags function doesn't like it.
