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...
I think that not bad if brokenman replace kernel and all stuff (vmlinuz, 000-kernel.xzm, 06-crippled_sources.xzm) for him to current 5.1.xx kernel by neko in all ISO files and sync updated ISO files in the all Porteus mirrors.
I think that would be even better. +2
But will also put workload on brokenman.
And we might call it 5.0rc2 then cause - you know - users might otherwise get confused when Porteus 5.0rc1 differs to Porteus 5.0rc1. Just my 2 cents.
Thanks I Check these out but first I need the official 5.0rc1 running - see my failure wird startx when using older kernel. Porteus-5.0rc1 (Post by Rava #72791) Hopefully nekos newer kernel and 000-kernel and *devel helps and I can start the system.
AFAIK this is a working version for recent hardware, but for older hardware, older versions are needed, e.g. 340.107 (unless there is now a newer 340 version) or even 304.37 (unless there is now a newer 304, blabla).
My most recent hardware is in a Laptop - GeForce GT330M - and it never worked with any version with a larger main version number than 340. Not even 390.87.
Current was last I checked 340.107 - and is GeForce GT330M now included in "GeForce up to 300", cause 300 < 330. But for me, the 340.107 always worked. (I presume you meant up to 3xx, aka up to 399)
Now the newest seems to be "340.1070"
At least the Nvidia.com site said so, seems they are either incompetent or practical jokers, since I got only redirected to the download of the "340.107" version, and sure the md5sum of the new download is the same as the one from "340.107".
Now I had a support chat - and he or she told me that "340.107" is indeed the newest version.
it's working out of the box -- no patch needed; it simply works
Current version is 430.34
I belive in it.
Just I use at my job old NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 video card and if look at official website of NVIDIA - the latest driver version for this card is 340.107 from 2018.6.6 and seems for Rava too.
Seems too that NVIDIA does not support by a new drivers for these old video cards
Probaly need to apply some Arch Linux pathes that share ncmprhnsbl, but this PC is use Porteus v4.0 x86_64 + kernel 4.15.0-rc7 and I have no reason to check it. It was just a sporting interest.
