sudoers.d Not Working

Yes that is its job, but does it work once you enter the password? If so then we can move to the sudo without password problem.

Where rpm2xzm Output?

It means I had no trouble converting your RPM file from a root console with no 05-devel.xzm module loaded. It works with a standard porteus install.

Slim Isn't Minimal

It's the biggest program running on my Porteus. Doesn't seem minimal
Not sure what you mean by this. You can boot into runlevel 3 and then run startx if you don't want to run slim.

How to auto mount all partitions?

Yes that script should mount all partitions in Porteus. Strange that they are not already mounted though. Can you provide logs?
You may also want to try running simply: mount -a

Now, provide the tune that you would play or are playing

There was Floyd. There was Queen, and there was Frank Zappa. Absolute musical genius. Not for everyone, but no denying the musical prowess.

A Google ad on the webpage, similar to https://portableapps.com/forums/general ... discussion
I quite like this idea but with a banner style ad so it doesn't push the forum to one side. Now I just need someone that has the time to research how this is done.

Duckduck go

It would be nice to automatically set duckduckgo as default search engine when installing a browser using the update tool shipped with porteus. This is currently the case. It's just that people may not know they can get the browsers through this tool. In any case the number of searches has dropped ...

Quick Ubuntu based Porteus (x64) - UPortabilizer ;)

As i've already explained, it is possible with ANY linux. There is nothing different about alpine linux. All linux like operating systems use the same source, just packaged in different ways. Example, ssl is required by slackware, ubuntu and alpine. They all get it from the same place, they just pac...

Duckduck go

We need a way to promote the use of duckduck go within our browsers. It's use is slowly declining and it is one of the ways in which users can support Porteus.

IDEAS:
  • Include a browser in Porteus
    We could have a day where all users search for 20 items using duckduckgo
Any other ideas?
