Using on Vista pc

Good start,but not verbose enough.
try:
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
to get the textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)

It may be that only a certain firmware is missing
grep -i firm /var/log/dmesg
Look for the usual suspects like "failed to load.." etc.

lspci -knn will show which driver is used.

Trouble with deb2xzm

guest@porteus:/tmp$ deb2xzm skypeforlinux-64.deb

slpkg & tar2xzm > txz2xzm

What about ...the other two pydoc files? Are they corrupt or does it serve a purpose? Some quotes from the i-net (personally, I know next to nothing about python) .py - Regular script .pyc - compiled script (Bytecode) .pyo - optimized pyc file (As of Python3.5, Python will only use pyc rather than ...

However, if you want to run falkon with XFCE you can do it. First, we need QT5 guest@porteus:~$ falkon falkon: /usr/lib64/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt...
