How can you localize an old version of porteus?

Let's suppose that I want to install Italian locales on my old copy of porteus 2.0, is there a way to rebuild the Italian module manually by using the ones inside the archive directory at http://dl.porteus.org/ ?

Re: Unable to reboot

Ladies and Gentlemen I did it! I found a fix to the problem without changing kernel! :Yahoo!: You can use the "reboot" boot parameter to teach the kernel how to reboot the system! the default value in some machines does not work, but there are others that possibly will. to use this boot parameter ty...

Re: Running a Porteus Virtual Machine from USB in a limited

You just have to set the bios of the computer you use to boot the usb key first with the f11, f12 or whatever key of the box. Porteus is perfectly well suited to hop from one computer to the other. But my suggestion is not about using a virtual machine. :wink: you know what happens if a professor c...

Re: Community module bundle project

Wouldn't be better if this script downloaded each dependence as a module? the program should check for the existence of a module in the modules folder and then download needed deps and activate them..what do you think?
