M. Eerie, I use this configuration + cheat code kmap=us,ru in /mnt/sdb1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg
BTW, I prefer us for keyboard layout by default. Probably it help you to fix your issue.
Blaze, where did you get the ru_RU.utf8 or ru_RU.UTF8 from?

When I ask my rc4 4.0 XFCE system about it I get this:

Code: Select all

# locale -a
C
C.utf8
POSIX
en_US
en.US.utf8
No de_DE.utf8. Brokenman told me some weeks ago that I have to wait for the final version, but I presume you get the needed locales somewhere... But How to get these?

Tried to find these myself since I can be online right now and download all I want (until the 90 minutes time limit is up, that is) but seems my search-fu fails... Image <-- I am just kidding there. :D
I tried https://duckduckgo.com/?q=de_DE.utf8+ge ... are&ia=web but got explanations how to set it up like https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:localization or https://www.shellhacks.com/linux-define ... -settings/ ... but I wanted to get the needed files for locale de_DE.utf8...

and another bug:
youtube-dl gives an error with 4.0rc4 (x86-64 XFCE)

I know, it is a very dirty trick to just replace #!/usr/bin/python3 with #!/usr/bin/python… could currently not check if youtube-dl is really working as it should due to lack of internet where my porteus pcs are....

Your link was not accessible... but https://packages.slackware.com/?r=slack ... i586-1.txz worked okay. Thanks.

...
And silly me downloaded the i586 version by mistake. *facedesk*

Update
This time the x86_64 version as of link of Blaze downloaded just fine.

Cinnamon

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ keepassx
keepassx: error while loading shared libraries: libQtCore.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/live/memory/images/ | grep keep
keepassx-2.0.3-x86_64-1alien.xzm/
guest@porteus:~$ 
keepassx downloaded via USM, no errors during the download or when creating the module.


-update-

Found a solution: keepassx error (Post by Ed_P #57800) :good:

Anyhow. .. how does one figure out which font Definitions in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps I need to keep for de_DE.utf8?
I try just keeping ISO-8859-1 and DIN_66003 ... but have to restart to see if that works okay (together with the changes in rc.d/lang.csh & lang.sh)

I Stripped down the glibc Module for de_DE to just 220kB for now.
Cheers!

KDE
As you say, I normally cook my own version of KDE.....This time I have done it again, but I did it trying to conserve as much as possible the official version. That meant not to touch -if possible- 000, 001 and 002.

Many features I had in 003 are now built in 002- good!

I had to add the "hostname" command, that was not present and one or other missing file I have now forgotten. I bumped NetworkManager (or was it ModemManager? -one of both for sure) to current, they were not paired, and chasing for the bold points (one on the left corner, proxy for an icon and three on the right corner, proxies for inverted ^, ^ and x, I actually found the missing file and added it to 003.

I lost the piece of paper where I wrote down changes I did. But I am posting this link to the actual changed modules, for the case the developer of this version wants to examine it.

Cheers!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

When doing a usm -u all it shows as a separate update. Can be misleading to some users.

As the Porteus-4.x released, I had tried to run on Mac notebook pro with retina. But it always halted with a blackscreen; only text-mode worked. However, Porteus-3.2 works with X. Is it caused by the absent of boardcom driver or something else missed?

Thanks in advance,

cch

Can you try booting into text mode aka runlevel 3, and if you not use changes folder to save the logs, do the below to log the Info to your harddrive. Make sure the target folder and target partition exists. I use /mnt/sda1/backup/ as the main partition and target folder. Adjust it to your own system.

To log /var/log/messages Do this:

Code: Select all

#log into a virtual terminal (VT) as root and type this (adjust the path if needed)
 tail -fn 10 /var/log/messages|tee -a /mnt/sda1/backup/var_log_messages_INSERT.DATE.HERE 
Log into another VT as root and Do the same for the /home/guest/ xsession log File. For XFCE that would be .xfce4-xsession.verbose-log

Could be that the x session log file not exists.

Then log into an VT as guest and create an empty file using "touch" command. (At least I hope the first X session uses that very same log file. .. I use a different approach using a script of mine that is able to copy the text ouput of an VT. But you need my script for that)

Anyhow when both log files are also copied to your hard disk log in as guest (if you are not already logged in as guest) and start X.
I do so via "startxfce4 --with-ck-launch" but that only works for Xfce.

Then look into both log files if any significent error got logged. Post these errors here.


I hope my above tips are not too complicated.
Cheers!

I have the same specs in my laptops, apart from the network card and have not seen the display and sound problems you're having.

I have tried the 586 RC4 Cinnamon and Mate ISO's and they both have a very long waiting time to get to the desktop. When they open to the desktop, they run well, speed being a relative thing due to the machine specs, but I certainly have no problems doing what I want.

I have an idea what may be causing this, but I haven't looked into it as I run a different init with Porteus and that will effect things as compared to the standard Porteus init. But, booting from the ISO showed the same problems when I last tested them. Looking into it is on my todo list, but I'm easily led astray with my current playing. However, I don't believe your machine specs are the problem, it's a software issue causing it.

I'm not sure, but I think in the language module

Code: Select all

de-core_locales.xzm
for XFCE 64bit the

Code: Select all

/usr/lib
directory should be renamed to

Code: Select all

/usr/lib64
.
Don't hang me, if I'm wrong.

Anyway great piece of work.
