Adding a user to a group

You need to add the groups and users as root.
You need to check the groups as guest.

05-devel.xzm

You're right, I didn't look close enough at your list. ncmprhnsbl is right, all header files are removed from the base modules and put into the 05_devel module. Why aren't you just using the official 05_devel module?

Connection failed: xmms2d is not running.
Your problem is xmms2d is not running. Do you have xmms installed?
Can you start the daemon manually?

FlashPlayer

When you log in as guest, the file /etc/profile is run and the following environment variable from the script is locked and loaded. PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts" Now because you are logged in as guest, guest has access to this path. Root doesn't have this path b...

Intel processors with a security bug

Yes this is the correct output. The previous was: date = 2017-01-xx You'll now be protected against one vector of spectre2. Keep a close eye on updates because we still need to mitigate other areas. IBRS support or retpoline options in the kernel should be coming soon. The latter will require a new ...

virtual reality accessible: google cardboard

I have the gearvr which is a much nicer experience than the cardboard vr. cardboard vr has quite a narrow field of vision and the tracking is not as smooth as gearvr.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

The wrong files are located at /usr/share/GConf/gsettings in 003-cinnamon. These files are read at activation time by /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas to build caches at /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, resulting in wrong caches that lead to the black screen at start. I don't think this is the culprit eit...

Porteus came and (almost) kicked Windows

I have a propensity to break things by trying stuff, so porteus suits me also.
I also don't like to clean up and I don't like browsers tracking me so fresh mode is my choice always.
