Hi Bogomips,

Just for my understanding (and learning) could you give an example for this? I thought anything could be run as root.

Thanks!

Re: Mate 3.2 x86_64

Thank you for easytag Jack!

I had tried to build it once but was unsuccessful.

It works on porteus cinnamon as well. I just needed to install libid3tag from slackware/l.

Re: usm-3.2

In usmgui, there is a duplicate entry for "Edit ponce mirror" in the Settings menu. The duplicate entry also points to the slackonly mirror.

Re: [Solved] dir2xzm with a top level directory

Hi Jack, I downloaded http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/porteus/x86_64/Porteus-v3.2rc5/Porteus-MATE-v3.2rc5-x86_64.iso and looked in the 001-core.xzm/opt/porteus-scripts/dir2xzm and saw that the fix is present. However, I would wait until the rc5 release is officially announced and then download...

Re: dir2xzm with a top level directory

Thank you for the fix brokenman, it now works fine.

I also read the egrep manual for the -w option and understood what it now does in the script.

Just out of curiosity, why was it not reproducible with you and wread?

Re: dir2xzm with a top level directory

Hi wread, I give you an example: # mkdir -p binder/usr binder/var # touch binder/usr/file1.txt # touch binder/var/file2.txt So the contents of the binder directory is: [root:~]# ls -R binder binder: usr var binder/usr: file1.txt binder/var: file2.txt [root:~]# Now, I duplicate the binder directory a...

[Solved] dir2xzm with a top level directory

Hello, I always used the command dir2xzm <directory> <module.xzm> But today, I noticed that dir2xzm creates a top level directory if the <directory> starts with the names of the top level file system directories. (Saw it also implemented that way in the dir2xzm script). I have a directory called lib...
