Had 6 modules in base, one in modules, and one on Live System. As a result, now have processes loop0 to loop7.Copy to RAM
Porteus has a boot option (implemented by a cheatcode) called copy2ram. Selecting this boot option means that all of the files inside your modules will be copied into your system's RAM. This slows down your boot process and uses up more of your RAM, but it also produces an incredibly fast, responsive system because all of the files are already loaded and available for use.
- Does this mean that despite modules being on loops, the base modules have all been copied to ram?
- And if this be the case, is my nvidia driver in modules also copied to ram?
- And what about optional?
Now have:Case Number 1: wrote:Now, let's move our slack package to our workspace and convert it into a module:
mv ~/Downloads/ ~/temp/modwork/
txz2xzm aterm-1.0.1-i486-6sl.txz aterm-1.0.1-i486-6sl.xzm
Use tab autocompletion for the package name (i.e., enter mv ~/Downloads/aterm, then press TAB and the rest of the filename will autocomplete), and the module name can be anything you want, but it's easier to keep your modules oganized if you use a specific name that includes the version number.
Now, you have an .xzm file next to your .txz file in ~/temp/modwork/. This module is ready to use, as it has no dependencies. You can't activate a module from within your live filesystem --if you try to activate it, the system will relocate it to /mnt/live/memory/modules and then activate it (and it will disappear from your 'modwork' directory). Let's copy this to some place permanent instead:

- Is there somewhere a complete list of useful Porteus CLI statements/scripts, in particular for Porteus Module Tools?
- Any way of getting sudo?
