I am not sure how to get that issue over here.
So, if you want to pursue things, provide me with that ISO.
Hi burdi01,
Here's another ISO with this bug.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/scc7zzll6 ... 4.iso/file
Apparently this bug occurs with all Porteus versions based on arch.

This ISO does not boot under VirtualBox (hangs on "Live system is ready now - starting Porteus") nor when dd'ed to a USB stick (asis not at all, after hybridization fails to mount /dev/sdc1).
Actually I was interested in the LinuxWelt ISO, not in a "random" APorteus one.
:D

Have you tried extracting the iso and put the kernel initrd and modules on the drive itself?
Cheers!

No, I have not. Partly because I think creating a bootable USB stick from an ISO should be like as I mentioned, and partly because I do not have the time right now. Adding this to my todo list ...

I am not surprised at all. Great catch!

Maybe experienced user could go and comment the last review that was posted on distrowatch:

Very interesting review about porteus. The author goes into details concerning the installation. A good pros and cons as a conclusion. :D

Porteus with the position 8º as best USB distro for this year 2021
https://www.techradar.com/uk/best/best-linux-distros
I checked, and in 2022 (as in: right now) it seems the same, 8th position and "Best Linux distro for USB"
Does anyone have a screenshot (e.g. via archive.org) of https://www.techradar.com/uk/best/best-linux-distros as it was in 2021 - my question is, did they update the position or description of any other distros? Is it just a coincidence that Port is in the very same position with the very same description?

Added in 4 minutes 57 seconds:
The 2022 page claims " By Mayank Sharma last updated 8 May 22 " but the ranking is the very same than in Jan 2021:
https://web.archive.org/web/20210107125 ... ux-distros
Quite fishy if you ask me… with a ranking of 18 entries, how can the ranking be the very same than 1 1/2 years ago?
Cheers!
Yours Rava

Very good reviews on distrowatch about porteus 5.0. They are worth to be read except the the outlying porteus hater or misundertanding occasional user.

[ s strike-through above by me]

Is is in lieu with their review policy to write a review praising Port in objective way, but also reviewing the most glaring incorrect review of others
"some points have been brought up that are most probably due to misunderstandings like:
point A * explanation
point B * other explanation
etcetera pp"

Calling all "most probably due to misunderstandings" should be objective, correct?
Even when someone is obviously a hater who makes illogical claims - calling someone a hater is very less objective and is not helping when handling trolls or haters anyway.
Cheers!

Hi rava,

About negative comments of users:
Let's state that both affirmation are judgments. Facts would be reporting what he wrote about his porteus experience. But I agree that hater is a more extreme judgment than misunderstanding occasional user.
About positive comments of users:
It is good to read what they see in porteus as a distribution. Some comments describe really well my own experience and I suppose the shared experience of the porteus lovers and regular users. But sometimes, they are revealing some aspects of porteus that I did not think about.

Cordiallement,

B)
