Re: Porteus -v3.2 final

I assume this is the bug report thread for porteus 3.2 final - since it is in the bug reports section, although the thread title does not say so. If not, sudoers please move this to the appropriate section. On kernel 4.8.6, broadcom wl crashes the kernel. Based on this link https://bbs.archlinux.org...

Re: Porteus clock. How it works.

A few months back, at work we needed a Linux environment. So, I used porteus on a mac book pro which already had OSX and Windows on it. Although system time was shown wrong on porteus, this was not an issue until clock skew was detected while compiling software. So, I did the logical thing: used the...

Re: Porteus clock. How it works.

Thank you for the detailed explaination brokenman. Thank you also for answering my question from the other thread: Does the hardware clock also set the timezone? The hardware clock is dumb. It has no concept of time zones or the natural drift in time that all clocks suffer. It just holds a number. I...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

Does the hardware clock also set the timezone? This is the output from my system: [root:/home/guest]# hwclock --show Tue 08 Nov 2016 07:01:42 AM CET .088982 seconds [root:/home/guest]# date Tue Nov 8 06:01:46 CET 2016 Strangely, the system time (output of date) is the correct actual time here. This ...

Re: Eastern day time in north america

Earlier today, something like 2hr 20' ahead, but now just 20' ahead. :Search: I think the difference in time happens if you are logged in or not. When I log-in the time is 1:20' ahead (Me based out of CET compared to your London time I guess). Also, the time when a particular user has mde a post ch...

[Solved] kmap=x cheatcode also in textonly console

Hi, I have a Swiss German keyboard and hence use the kmap=ch cheatcode. However, in textonly mode (init = 3), the layout still defaults to US and I have to manually change the keyboard layout using the loadkeys command. Is it possible to change the keyboard layout in both textonly as well as graphic...

Re: Trade Off between Memory and Looping

What I meant was, a reasonably fast storage controller, (maybe in conjunction with a fast CPU), can be good enough that it masks the performance benefits of a copy2ram. For me, copy2ram is useful: When the storage controller is slower (slower eMMC), When the storage controller does undue power savin...

Re: Trade Off between Memory and Looping

Surprised to find hardly any difference in performance between running Porteus Base Modules in RAM, and running them from an ISO file. Hi Bogomips, Is the iso mounted from a USB? (USB Flash drive/USB harddisk). USB controllers are quite fast. I too have not seen much performance difference between ...

Re: Need Help

What command will tell me the com port or is there one? Because it is a USB to UART driver I guess the port would be /dev/ttyUSB0. If you are lucky maybe the cp210x is kind enough to output some message when a device is connected/disconnected. Check dmesg if the driver says anything about where the...

Re: Need Help

Hi Jack, Newer linux kernels already have the cp210x by default. On 3.2rc5 I checked it is already present. uest@porteus:~$ find /lib/modules/4.7.2-porteus/kernel/ -name cp210x.ko /lib/modules/4.7.2-porteus/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/cp210x.ko The driver should be loaded automatically as soon as you ...

Re: Porteus module activation status

Hi ncmprhnsbl, Some interesting food for thought :) . With the noauto cheatcode, the porteus-livedbg file does mention where the porteus data was found (Eg: /mnt/sdb1/porteus) , but of course the drive itself will not be available (since it has been unmounted). I guess it would be dangerous to assum...
