Porteus 5.0 Keeps Freezing

With your changes= cheatcode try adding the EXIT option to see if it helps. For example changes=EXIT:/porteussave.dat.

Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1

I'm not sure I can. :( I don't use 5 all the time, I spend most of my time with 4. But I'm reasonably sure the right click problem has been there but have I mentioned the problem before, probably but not sure where. Apparently you don't have the problem. :o

Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1

It's more than renaming. I'm experiencing the problem in highlighting text to copy in Firefox and working with text in xed.

Problem loading porteussave.dat file

Have you tried changes=/porteussave.dat? Not sure I understand what you mean...are you suggesting to try APPEND changes=porteussave.dat instead of APPEND changes=/mnt/sda1/porteussave.dat in porteus.cfg?

Problem loading porteussave.dat file

Have you tried changes=/porteussave.dat?

Should you have multiple save.dat files present, as in 2 flash drives plugged in at the same time or one on the hard drive, you can use the changes=UUID: command to ensure the right drive's file gets used.

how to backup restore

I'm not aware of Porteus having a GUI backup/restore app, but USM can create an rdiff-backup module for you. I think backing up the changes folder is adequate for system changes but if you loose the partition you will have to reinstall Porteus before doing the restore. You should also backup the mod...
