Porteus using Debian

I have been having problens with Porteus reading my memory and using it, I have been having problems with crashes I never had before upgrading to Ver.4. I tried Slax
but it is just a Web-based distribution right now no better that my chromebook. This morning I found Debiandog and gave it a try the first thing I noticed was how familiar the bootup script look, it was Porteus, I then wen to my HD to try to activate some modules and my surprise the will all activate also it will read the whole installed memory.
Also run in memory and comes with a lot of applications.
If porteus ever wanted to use Debian as a base Stretchdog is the answer.

If this is Porteus, or based on Porteus why is there ZERO mention or credit given? Have they used Porteus as a base to create this?

They do mention it as a matter of fact.

two boot methods available:

1. DebianDog 'boot style Porteus' - porteus initrd1.xz made for debian kernel and firmware. + encrypted save file option.
(recommended if you are familiar with puppy or porteus boot options)
2. DebianDog live-boot-3x - debian initrd.img created with initramfs-tools-v3.x. + encrypted save file/partition option.

Well that means you are doing something good and is worth copiyin,g they even have activate and deactivate for xzm modules using your image., the reason I was shopping around is that when I updated to V4 Porteus will only read 1/2 of my system memory and it will crash no messages or anything, I was so worried I ordered a new memory module.
I installed the debian and all of a sudden I have my memory back.

You should at least look at it before you put it down, Slax is doing Debian,which I didn't like, this one have even more apps running in 254 mb.
I still be using Porteus because all my 3D printer stuff is in there.

I'd need a system information dump to troubleshoot your problem.
