Re: Best format option?

Porteus Non Kiosk version LXQT I don't know if your question got fully answered elsewhere but, I try to explain best I can. Okay, first thing. Porteus cannot save changes on a FAT32 or NTFS formatted drive directly I'm afraid since Linux isn't designed for them. Your only choice is using the save d...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

I managed to get it to work. I re-did everything to make sure I didn't make an error somewhere, it possible I did. It helped me learn new stuff too. I wrote down // notes down as I did this for TLDR people viewing this thread. // If making changes to a dat container that is accessed through the chan...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

-b size=4096. Sorry, it's this one. Should have copied and pasted from my script. happens if one just reads it and types it out. :( I ran all the terminal commands successfully. Only issue is that the new container didn't contain the saved data like it's a fresh new run. I double checked by creatin...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

I kinda figured spaces were syntax sensitive to the config file. I named it save_ext4.dat. I used underscore for the space and added ext4 so I know which storage format I used. FURRY I was referring to the mp3 file on your desktop not the save.dat file. Sorry about that. I got mixed up, mate. dd if...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

Please try to manually create anew save.dat file with your preferred size. Then mount both old and new save.dat file and copy over the files from the old one into the new one. This will confirm if the problem is in the upsize script although it essentially does the same thing. dd if=/dev/null of=/p...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

I know it saves on shutdown but it seemed to cause issues not allowing a file to ever be fully perm deleted even though I try re-delete the file and shut down. When I reboot, the file still appears even though it just a mp3 file on my desktop. changes=/path/file.dat seems more stable so far. I thin...

Re: Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

changes=EXIT:/path/file.dat writes all changes one time when Porteus is shutting down. changes=/path/file.dat writes changes as they occur. I know it saves on shutdown but it seemed to cause issues not allowing a file to ever be fully perm deleted even though I try re-delete the file and shut down....

[Solved] Issues Resizing savefile.dat in Savefile Manager

Hi, I recently just started using Porteus and slowly getting a feel for using the new OS. I checked forums for this issue but none solved my issue so I registered here to report it. I'm currently using XFCE (recommended by a friend) 32bit v3.1, running from a pen drive. I'm using a 512mb, formatted ...
