Porteus Kernel Builder

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

@babam
I don't know about Paragon.
I will study it. (Maybe it will take enough time.)

If you have available time to fix the probrem,
please try to build kernel by yourself.
I am happy that you make me know the result. I will update "Kernel Builder" by your result report.


Thanks.

@Ed_P But NTFS-3G ( FUSE based ) is very slow ( write speed ).

I have to wait a long time when copying large files ( .iso, .mp4 )

My experiences with ntfs-3g are that writing files is more than speedy enough, it is creating the files that is slow. So copying from ntfs-3g via usb 3.0 to ntfs-3g my 131G backup directory with relatively large and hence relatively few files takes 14 mins, but doing the same for a 125G documents directory with many smaller files grinds to a halt.

Part of your problem babam is using NTFS on a USB drive. NTFS is for hard drives. For flash drives use FAT, or exFAT if larger than 32 GB. NTFS is a journaling file system which creates extra IO when writing files. USB ports also aren't as fast as hard drives which doesn't help.

@neko

Maybe this is the cause of failure when building Paragon

Code: Select all

 conftest.c:9:28: fatal error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory
conftest.c:9:28: fatal error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory
conftest.c:55:29: fatal error: 1/radix-tree.h: No such file or directory

1. "Porteus Kernel Builder" was updated.
2. Most recent versions of build examples were updated.

Please refer to the top article of this thread.

This is simply not true.

NTFS can be used on portable units like USB sticks without any problem. And, contrary to what happens with FAT units, NTFS has full support to symlinks :good:

Yes, symlinks are supported in NTFS, but not in FAT filesystem.

FAT supports EFI, but you can't boot EFI witih NTFS.

And this is where the journey begins with laptops and secure boot and BIOS updates...

Cheers!

P.S.: I asked in another thread if anyone knows how to create a USB stick with a FAT boot partition and another (NTFS) partition for data / modules (with symbolic links, etc.)

@neko san,

The last kernel version working well for me in Nemesis/Aporteus is 5.1.15.

Thenceforth, I'm experiencing sloooow boot times. (I think you too). :%)

Thank you.

Cheers!

I would think GParted could do that but why not make the 2nd partition ext4 or some other Linux flavor which supports symlinks? NTFS doesn't buy you anything since Windows only accesses the 1st partition on removable drives.

Yes, I guess you're right.

The question is, NTFS is readable for many devices out there. Think of using the USB stick to a wide range of multimedia files, videos, music, epubs...

I'm on my way to find the perfect mobility solution on my pocket ;)

Also, would I be able to load my custom modules from there?

Thanks

:)

May be but not necessarily as a 2nd partition. FAT32 on a 1st partition is read by everything.
