Re: Boot-Up Run Of Of Space - Porteus3.0

Ahau, thanks for your suggestions! Everything I'm doing with Porteus is being closely watched and spread bu students and members of our home school who want to ditch all their "Gatesmobile" machines! I did as you directed and opened the file and did some pruning but it was probably too corrupted as ...

Re: Save.dat container

It is important to note (thanks phhpro) that you must save the module (save session) onto a linux filesystem otherwise you may mess up important permissions.. Seasons Greetings! I'm just guessing, but is there any way to directly save a session as a image file or a zip file? According my reads thos...

Re: Christmas wishes for Porteus-3.0

Seasons Greetings! Two non-critical BUT very newbie attracting requests: 1. Include or adapt Porteus for "wmctrl" to create multiple desktop-specific wallpapers and such with. 2.

Re: Transferring Personal Configs & Mail From Puppy To Porte

I imagine that someone will come back to help you. However, between you and me, recognize that you saved on the price of the linux box. Mac attract their fans because their boxes look fancy. However, you almost have to double the cost of the box. We are trying to make porteus as attractive as possi...

Transferring Personal Configs & Mail From Puppy To Porteus

Seasons Greetings! I haven't totally made the switch yet till Porteus passes its shakedown cruise (Puppy's nice but eats up flash space with irreducible memory for one), but one way that can help draw converts from other Linux and Macs and Windows is to make it painless and easy to totally transfer ...

Re: Christmas wishes for Porteus-3.0

I concur everyone's suggestions on this topic on top of the time-stamp fix!

What is the ETA for 3.0 or the beta which I'd be happy to test?
