Re: Disable console switching with ALT-Fn in Runlevel 3?

fanthom: You are obviously in Runlevel 5 (graphical mode, KDE or whatever) since you mention CTRL+ALT+Fn.
I am in TEXTMODE, runlevel *3*, no GUI, and I can "only" use ALT+Fn, which I don't want.
Yes, I changed the inittab, but still, Porteus will not ignore when the user presses ALT+F2, for example.

Re: Disable console switching with ALT-Fn in Runlevel 3?

I did edit the /etc/inittab and copied the new version into my rootcopy directory. However, Linux DOES NOT ignore the ALT-Fn keys. I can press ALT+F2, for example, and the text screen will change. Sure, I cannot login anymore. But the keypress "ALT+F2" is still recognized and not ignored. I want tha...

Disable console switching with ALT-Fn in Runlevel 3?

Hello,

Is there a way to disable the console switching with ALT+F1, ALT+F2..... ALT+F6 in porteus, when I have booted to runlevel 3?
Any boot parameters that I need, or something like that?

Re: Cannot get PPTP or VPN to "vpnbook.com" to work

Well, well, well... Meanwhile I am using Porteus v1.2 64bit KDE version and I am trying to use the Network-Manager to do the VPN connection. Thus, I download the "OpenVPN Cert Bundle" from http://www.vpnbook.com/free-openvpn-account/VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-Euro1.zip * I import the .ovpn file into Networ...

Re: 64bit porteus 2.1 tigervncserver?

a) I *have* created a password with "vncpasswd".
b) "x0vncserver" seems to be some special VNC server that is linked to the main screen.
This is not what I want.
I want multiple windows in :1 :2 :3 :4 :5 etc.etc. for multiple users etc.etc.

So, what to do?

64bit porteus 2.1 tigervncserver?

Hi, I am now running on a RazorQT-porteus2.1, 64bit and it looks neat! I noticed that the vncviewer is integrated into that version of Porteus. However, when I want to start a vncserver, I get: guest@porteus:/usr/bin$ vncserver vncserver: couldn't find "/usr/bin/Xvnc". guest@porteus:/usr/bin$ vnccon...

Re: Feedback and Bug Reports for Porteus v2.1 RC1

Thanks for the fontdir clue, I will try it out! In the meantime I can report another little quirk: When you use "copy2ram" as a boot parameter, it never counts down how many modules were loaded already. For example, it says "10 modules left" (to load) but it never counts down that number, unlike in ...

Re: Feedback and Bug Reports for Porteus v2.1 RC1

Now that the download works, I'm trying out Porteus 2.1 RC1 , 64bit, razor-qt version.
Wonderful!
I just have a minor hassle with the Desktop switcher. I need more than 2 desktops. I cannot find a configuration option anywhere where I could select the number of desktops.
Any help?

Re: Porteus Web Wizard

Hi everyone, I guess you fixed it already, but when I wanted to download the build, the download always stopped during the last 10-40 MB of data. My web browser was Opera, but I switched to Firefox and it seems to work better. One of the "completed" downloads (from yesterday) has an ISO where I cann...
