Jack's version of Porteus 4.0 x86-64 - 3 Desktop's

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...

These are my version of Porteus 4.0 Desktop there are problems so you can try them if you want.

You will have to change the Customize Look and Feel and Wallpaper.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

INfO Changed the thread title since "My [whatever]" way is less informative than "jack's [whatever]"

Downloaded them all... but currently I am on a 32 bit machine, so it will at least take some hours until I can check these out and give you some heads up...

I presume just using 000-kernel.xzm 001-core.xzm 002-xorg.xzm from the "official" iso, e.g. from the Porteus-XFCE-v4.0rc4-x86_64.iso is working as well?
Cheers!

The thread title change is OK with me. I should have did that but I didn't think.

I don't have a 32bit Computer or I would have built that version to.

I just rebuilt brokenman ISO with out a Desktop to make the ISO a little smaller to try and help for download time.

You can run and create 32 bit Porteus or any other Linux on a x86-64 machine just fine... just the other way round, trying to run a x86-64 bit Linux on a 32 bit only machine will not work... *nudge nudge* :D

When I get time and download the needed files I will build them. That way I can help both 32 and 64 bits Porteus 4.0 OS.

I just thought I will need to build a 32 bit Porteus 4.0 USB to use brokenman script file.

I hope my Porteus 4.0 project Desktop builds work because I won't be able to help much. I am not that smart but I will try to help.

Sorry I can't remember but I need to start taking notes. I know the last thing was the wallpaper. I all ready delete the old xfce4 module.

I am losing my short term memory.

At least creating XZM modules works fine, I created lots of 32 bit modules running x86-64 Porteus, and also created 64 bit modules when running a 32 bit machine / running on 32 bit Porteus.

When it comes to compiling, not just creating modules out of, say, slackware packages (that are pre-compiled), you would need to add the 32 bit dependencies libraries to your x86-64 System...
At least I think so, I was acting like the devil avoiding holy water. In my case it was: keep my Porteus on x86-64 machines pure 64 bit, and not use any software that would need the puny 32 compatibility libraries...
So far, that worked out okay. Sometimes it is annoying when a certain library a program needs seems to be only available in 32 bit…
Cheers!

Hello jack. Thanks for the work. Does your xfce4 version comes with plank stock?

System: 8 Core "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz", 4GB of RAM, 2824 of swap (zram and swapfile)
Should be sufficient in running Porteus/Lxde...

Sadly, lxde fails loading:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ startlxde
** Message: main.vala:102: Session is LXDE
** Message: main.vala:103: DE is LXDE

(lxsession:1236): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Code: Select all

000-kernel.xzm
001-core.xzm
002-xorg.xzm
003-lxde-x86_64-2018-02-14.xzm
00[0-2]*xzm are all from Porteus-XFCE-v4.0rc4-x86_64.iso
Cheers!

When I ran LXDE I did it in Graphics mode and Always fresh but I didn't try Text mode. Sorry but I do not know how to fix it. I am not that smart.

EDIT

I just thought of something to start LXDE in Text mode is type slim. I think that will work.
