What is your porteus.cfg default?

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

You guys are so advanced! I'm using no cheatcodes at all!

@ wead...
initrd=boot\syslinux\initrd.xz
What does it do?
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

A cold boot is similar to booting after the machine has been turned off, all the RAM is initialized. Not sure when I started using it or who suggested it to solve what problem I was having but I've been using for some time.

@n0ctilucient
initrd.xz is the first boot step. It will be read, decompressed and stored in ram, building a skeleton of folder "/" and directing the computer to load the necessary minimal working application.

You can decompress it and take a look at it.

How does your /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg file compare with the /porteus/porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file? Do you put any cheatcodes in there too?
