WiFi Temporary Fix

You could download an old Porteus iso like 3.1 32bit / 64bit or an old 3.2rcX 32bit / 64bit . Links above use this mirror I use http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/porteus/ to avoid putting strain on Porteus main server. The WiFi bug is random with me but if you really need to use your internal W...

Re: Porteus donations - thank you for your support!

I started using DuckDuckGo to help donate and show appreciation for this os. :) Plus it's a lot lighter and friendlier than Google. :twisted: One thing I've noticed on old Opera in the v3.1 default search engine is "https://duckduckgo.com/?t=porteus&q=%s". Does it require "t=porteus" in the default ...

Re: Porteus -v3.2 final

Not a breaking bug but I thought I mention it. While I was testing on a guest account which required rebooting with some changes from fresh mode. I ran this: guest@porteus:~$ save-changes /mnt/sdb1/test.xzm Please enter your root password below Password: save-changes /path/to/resulting/module.xzm Yo...

Re: Porteus -v3.2 final

I've already mentioned this in the main chat but I thought I note it here if this is for bug reports. ffmpeg -i old.webm new.mp4 The current base version of ffmpeg returns an illegal operation error like unrar did in 3.2rc5. I got ffmpeg-3.1.1-i486-1alien.xzm update from usm and it works alright. Al...

Re: Couple of questions related to copy2RAM, persistence, LX

3- when I download an official release, it's build on-the-fly, but I would like to know which files I have to change if I want to make some modification on my own (for instance: make root as the default user, or change to EFI). 4- what's the difference between an EFI and non-EFI build? I don't real...

Porteus Application Data Backup Solution?

Is there any proper Porteus application data backup solution? I've been researching since I don't wanna keep making a new dat container and personalizing all the applications over and over again each update. I've found that folders with . prefix in guest directory have the stuff. But I thought I ask...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I've found if I try to activate a module in a file directory with spaces it causes this notification to appear. Also it reappears then says the module is already activated when it isn't. http://i.imgur.com/TbOoG7R.png

Still problems with getting WiFi applet to enable on start up. :( So far I've tried: * Loading dhcp-4.3.4-i586-1.xzm in module. Edited the 00-dhcp-client.conf by changing "dhcp=dhcpcd" to "# dhcp=dhcpcd" and changing "# dhcp=dhclient" to "dhcp=dhclient". * I've gone to my WiFi connection and set IPv...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I'm sure v3.1 was fine with the internet, but it been some time since I was on it so I can't guarantee it. The problem is probably rooted between v3.2rc1 and v3.2rc4 if it's true. I could try testing on other versions of XFCE but to make sure it okay probably take a week per version to make sure it ...

Re: Script to make Slackware Compliant package of xz, deb

I'm sorry. I thought my explanation was detailed enough to help. :( To explain it further. Try download v4.6.0 of Node JS LTS from here: https://nodejs.org/en/ Inside the node-v4.6.0-linux-x86.tar.xz package are these directories and contents.
