Have you tried your USB stick in a non-UEFI machine? Is it still bootable/readable?

Re: limits on save.dat file

a format that worked with multiple OSs needed to be used and it was agreed upon by all to be FAT. Linux, Windows, Apple all supported FAT formatted drives. I don't think anything was agreed upon. Linux can read and write to FAT drives can't it. And Apple. Trust me it was agreed upon to support read...

Oh yeah. But some newer USB drives are seen as Fixed drives rather than Removable so things are still a changing.

Re: limits on save.dat file

Well,I see this save.dat File as a Gift to the Windows Users. (as a temporary solution) So they can try and explore Porteus for a while without losing their Changes. I look at it as more a portability feature. Years ago OSs were installed on hard drives which were built into pc machines. So once th...

Re: USM Unified Slackware Package Manager

I often get up stuck with usm with the following message: Cannot execute command ' /usr/bin/usmgui' Have you tried using just usmgui? That's what I have been using the past couple of days. Could there be a simple command that could clean the hole usm installation and restore to usm? That would be h...

Re: Porteus 3.0 final feedback

and works it in always fresh mode? A valid question. And yes it does. Clicking on the taskbar USM link brings up a Porteus password window asking for the ROOT password. I then get a Message window saying Missing database files. On the USM window I click on Updates then the Update USM option and am ...

Re: Porteus 3.0 final feedback

Didn't work.

I booted Always Fresh, mlooped the save.dat file, renamed the /etc/usm and /var/usm folders, safer than deleting IMO, there was no /tmp/usm folder, ulooped the file and rebooted with the changes=EXIT cheatcode. usm still doesn't work.

Re: limits on save.dat file

@Ed_P Always Fresh mode is the key, right? I would like to fix this free space: 0bytes problem. I will read it and try to solve this matter. Thank you very much! If the save.dat file proves to be full it can be expanded via the Porteus Settings Centre options. Just be sure the file isn't in use via...

I know. :cry:
Try Always Fresh Mode, update usm, relaunch usm, update databases, relaunch usm -> should work :good: .
But.... what happens when I then reboot with my save.dat file? Do note that I boot from an ISO not an install.

Re: limits on save.dat file

To find out how full your save.dat file is see this posting:

http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... =15#p13272

Do note it must be run in an Always Fresh mode.
