Porteus Updater - ERROR An internet connection is required

Thats good, but then I'd have to manually patch it somehow. Or find/make a Porteus module to resolve the problem. Porteus is a modular system. Yes, maybe I could have used dd to do that, No dd rather a gui file manager and copy & paste. I'm not sure I would be able to make it bootable. The Install ...

Porteus Updater - ERROR An internet connection is required

Ok. :) There are no patches that are not included in the ISO. The Porteus Update error could be a server error, or a future required patch. :D The USM update refers to the USM databases and they are updated via the Update option on the USM menu bar. They do require an Internet connection. If you are...

Kernel Panic on older hardware?

It's possible your flash drive is too fast for the hardware. Try adding a delay cheatcode. Something like delay=8.

hackin' on an Atom z8350 mini pc

If for some reason you power down, and remove the Porteus boot usb stick to do something else with it, when you reinsert the stick into this computer, pull the dc power jack and re-insert the dc jack before booting up. No need to do this if you didn't remove the usb boot stick. Adding the cheatcode...

I will say that the link at the bottom of your Home page is broken - that address no longer exists.
Which link would that be, the Download It link or the Install It link? Both work for me.

Strange bug in USM 3.2.0

:%) What happens if you create the module without the p symlink? What happens if you mkdir y instead?

If your USB stick is mounted I don't see the need for the symlink. :unknown:

Releases

If you check the release dates of 3.1 and 3.2.2 and 4.0 here: Announcements you will see that Porteus is not an annual system and only based on the current release of Slackware at the time of the Porteus release.

Savefile resizing suggestion

What happens if you use your USB drive in a system with another flash drive or no hard drive? sdb1 won't work. Personally I think the ext2-4 formats were fine when flash drives were 2 GB, 4GB and even 8GB but allocating 60GB or 120GB to ext4 that is unreadable by TVs, car stereos, Windows systems, c...
