Am a n00B to Porteus, but not at all to Linux or Slackware http://www.slackware.com/
Have a complicated question (at least for me ) regarding using one of the latest Porteus 5.x on three computers:
- This desktop tower x86_64 PC running Slackware 14.2 using the XFCE desktop environment (DE) -- also has the Fluxbox Window Manager.
- A memory-constrained laptop PC with a flaky DVD-drive running x86_64 Debian GNU/Linux Stable using the LXQt DE - also has the LX DE.
- An older 2007-model, memory-constrained, dual-core 64bit Apple iMac upgraded to Mac OS X 10.6.x Snow Leopard with its own unique DE https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2009/08/ ... August-28/
Wish to run Porteus from a CD as opposed to a DVD or USB becuz ...
- both liveDVDs and bootable liveUSBs bootup way too slowly on machines b. and c.
- an iMac-compatible-formatted USB drive can be used to transfer files between both b. and c. and the same USB drive can be ideally suited to store and use Porteus's /porteus save folder for the iMac machine c., booted off the Porteus liveCD
All three computers a., b., and c. can successfully CD-boot from most of the 64bit Porteus DE versions listed at <mirror-name>/porteus/x86_64/Porteus-v5.0/ as well as super slowly from an older KNOPPIX 7.2 liveCD <mirror-name>/KNOPPIX_V7.2.0CD-2013-06-16-EN.iso on the latter two machines b. and c. :|
to those who can best help out here or at least point this Slackware user in the right direction
