P.S. I attempted to start the script from the terminal with

You first have to do this.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: toor
root@porteus:/home/guest#
root@porteus:/home/guest# cd /mnt/sdb3/boot
root@porteus:/mnt/sdb3/boot# sh Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com 
root@porteus:/mnt/sdb3/boot#
That how I do it.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

KDE5 32 bit

On the way to making nvidia driver, noticed while in text mode, had lost all swap space. Through elimination found culptit to be rootcopy parameter, and rc.local is a subset of the cinnamon rc.local that is used. So turned on swap with swapon -a

After making the driver, entered GUI with init 4. Although nvidia driver was in charge, found KDE to be a bit sluggish.

Disk was being thrashed, and top showed baloo_file peaking at 98% cpu. Shortly thereafter it was a case of REISUB.

Was having trouble trying to get append working on a dvd-rw. After quite a bit of research, opted for xorriso. On 3.1 managed to make a xorriso module, and after some meticulous manual reading, was able to get append working on a dvd-rw. However there was an unexpected spin off. :) Previously on Mint, Brassero managed to make coasters of quite a few of my dvd-rw media. Here on kde K3 Burn could use some of them, but was pleasantly surprised to find that xorriso was able to resurrect almost all the dvd-rw, written off as coasters, except for a couple. :good:

7z could simply ignore the block addresses of all files which have a byte count of 0.
This is kind of the way I see it too. It wasn't broken before.

Bogomips, I too foud KDE5 on 32bit a disappointment. I did not observe the runaway baloo process. Will check it out.

Jack, thanks. I am not very familiar with Linux; I found some reference to running a script just by entering its name. I've managed to install Porteus to sdb3. My understanding of the problem has been complicated by some weird fault with my IDE controller such that it will boot from a hard drive only if it is on IDE 0; Plop cannot boot OSs on another hard drive attached via IDE either, but can boot from USB.

kde 32 bit

Need to retract previous comments. It appears the nvidia installer was responsible for the runaway baloo process, which in turn made kde seem sluggish. However having now made a nvidia driver module and tweaked the boot process, kde response is fine and am no longer writing off kde. Will be quite usable if only could find a lightweight browser, which does not gulp up memory the way vivaldi did, Far worse than PaleMoon in that respect.

Files present in directory do not show up.

Another thing was that the screenshot routine claims to save as png, but in reality saves as webp, Eventually found online converter to transform to png, This was necessary as neither postimage,org nor cinnamon image viewer capable of handling this format.

On my old Satellite (which seemed to run 3.1 well), Porteus 3.2rc3 x86_64 XFCE booted in graphics mode says "Failed to start message bus ... error reading from ...system.conf", proceeds to load wallpaper, then stop; it doesn't respond to the keyboard, but shuts down within three seconds (with success messages replacing the wallpaper) upon pressing the power button.

P.S. Sorry -- just realized that A) the existing installation no longer has access to the taskbar or whisker menu and B) I was trying to boot the new image with that defective Porteus installation in place.

Bogomips I remember you mentioning a problem with pulseaudio applet using too much CPU. I just reproduced this tonight. I noticed slackware-current has just recompiled the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin to fix a problem with the panel icon where it did not honour the gtk3 theme.

I installed the package and I don't get the cpu problem but I DO get the opposite of what they intended to fix. Now I have a white square background on the panel icon. Grrrrr. No doubt this will be blamed on the gtk3 theme but I have so far not found a theme that has light widgets and a dark panel and correctly puts a transparent background on the pulseaudio plugin icon. Looks like I will be patching themes tonight. :wall:

Got that sorted. The new porteus xfce4 will embrace material design.

Maybe leafpad could be better - another Linuxes have the same.

Why slim? Isn't lxdm better - easy to switch DE.

I was originally using lxdm but came across a showstopper that made the change inevitable. Can't recall what it was right now. Are you having a problem with slim?

Thanks.
I don't have problem with slim, but from my point of view lxdm was nicer.

@ brokenman... material design... way to go :good: perhaps I will attempt it with Pek window manager and Bar (by Lemonboy) possibly Xfe also.

In regard to slim... perhaps you could take Qingy for a drive around the block?
