Kingston usb disk locked

I have access to the files. It is just that gparted will not modify the read only status, neither fdisk or dd usual procedure or even hdparm. https://www.thegeekdiary.com/how-to-disable-write-access-to-usb-devices-using-hdparm-tool/ This seems to be a dead end for some usb keys brand, and not only k...

Kingston usb disk locked

I have a kingston usb disk locked. No dd or fdisk command will restore read-write function. Do you have any suggestion? I have read that the palimpsest utility or gnome-disk-utility might enable me to overcome the problem. Permitting me at least to erase the whole key and restoring read-write functi...

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

As there is no known vaccine, the prime minister of Québec sait on the radio waves that they estimate that about 60 to 70% of the people will be infected. Trying to understand what is going on, it seems that mostly elderly are dying from the disease, but not all of them. Roughly the estimate is that...

Some storytelling

We need software, just drop in. People will be happy to work with you or to use your work. There is porteus kiosk, but there is porteus, two different distributions forks based respectively on gentoo and slackware. There is also nemesis based on archlinux.

Welcome to porteus forum! :)

Porteus 5 + Virtualbox - after some time running it stops for unknown reason, any ideas?

I confirm that it is not a rolling distro. However, as a rolling distro you have nemesis wich is based on porteus and operates over artix, a clone of archlinux. The advantage of nemesis is that it offers a wider variety of packages.

Have fun!
