Re: JAVA on Porteus How Installing it ?????

This post is interesting for me because the mind mapping software I use requires Java. Papa, I am also new, and I got nice help from Porteus people, and solved the issue, nothing wrong with Porteus, it is a matter of try to understand how it works, and also Linux. And in the worst case, if something...

Re: Unable to save files & configuration same Porteus DVD-RW

Hello and thanks Bogomips. Nice article, I did not know Puppy can do all that stuff. Since a year and half and when I have to work outside my home-office or enter into bank or my hosting accounts, I use Slacko Puppy running from a mini DVD-RW (1.4GB) it is pretty reliable and very handy, but I was n...

Re: Unable to save files & configuration same Porteus DVD-RW

Hello everybody and thanks a lot for your suggestions and time to respond. This is getting too technical for my little knowledge. I do not pretend to compare Porteus with Puppy, they are different. I love the way Porteus ISO is being created and how it looks when running. I would like Porteus has th...

Re: FAA Unable to save files & configuration same Porteus DV

Hello,
Thank you for the data Francois, I have the USB key, but here I will use only the DVD-RW when going out of my home-office. It is very difficult to explain our reality to people in other countries, where human rights are taken for granted.
Best regards

Re: FAA Unable to save files & configuration same Porteus DV

Hello, Yes brokenman I used that Puppy feature every time I use it in a small DVD RW 1,4GB. Puppy has some nice features, but I was not able to run some programs like Skype. And frankly, after using Porteus, well I feel more comfortable with it, hope the developers can find pretty soon an easy way t...

Re: FAA Unable to save files & configuration same Porteus DV

The gui is as good as the cli. Though you should try the cli, you will get to know all there is to be known about the cli: usm -h Where h is for help. 8) And keep telling us about the qualities and problems of porteus. This is refreshing. :D Hello Francois, well probably I made a mistake with the G...

Hello Bogomips and thank you. I though I could use the GUI installer, so it has to be done using command line, I hope it takes care of all dependencies. I come from Windows world and I am not very proficient with command line, I will try those commands once I know how to storage the session data in ...
