some storytelling

Post#1 by dimaria » 11 Dec 2017, 14:39


I just registered here. Last weekend I found about Porteus, the afterlife of Slax. I'v heared about the previous name Slax Remix, but didn't follow the discussion.

Anyway, I'm a Slax user since about 5 years. I'm using it for my home server, came across it in search for a distro that runs from a CF card, or in my case a DOM, and normally won't write to it, to save wear.
I made a number of modules for Slax, the bigger ones being Squeezebox+Twonky Server. Meanwhile there's a lot of stuff, the details and dependencies would make it hard to migrate to something else. All was running well through the years, no need to change.

The purchase of a 3TB data disk pressed me to do some updating, since I needed GPT support. I made a kernel update following fanthom's instructions (many thanks!):

A link to those instructions might be useful to others looking to do the same thing. ;)
