I find this "loosing settings&FireWall"-stuff almost to be a dealbreaker now for Porteus.
Can we help to fix that?
It is not ok when they "forgets" the language and a lot worse is that the firewall can suddenly be off, and no real warning about that.
We should have an indicator?
(and why not default it to "block all" instead of "open" ? )
It was a fresh LXQT32 bit from the ISO-configurator,
I lost the download link but have the iso on disk, i dont think it is needed, as I have seen this before with other isos too. It is a common problem.
This iso was with LXQt32bit, firefox and libreoffice,
standad videodriver, no printing, no skype,
keyboard = se, , timezone stockholm(sweden)
user and rootpassw
I added noauto (is that a problem for the psc and changes-modules at boot..? I think it should not be a problem as it is mounted during the "copy 2ram" boot process)
In PSC The Firewall was set to ON, and "Block all" ,
a new rootpassw was also set at the same time in PSC,
I Saved this session to Module
I Saved PSC at exit from the tool
Now I Rebooted.. = I get an us-keyboard... and:
OBS, that the NEW passwd DID work this time! NOT forgotten, strange.
Code: Select all
root@porteus:/home/guest# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
That could maybe be a clue for you?
But in 3.01 the new passwd have also been lost sometimes, and then it defaulted back to "toor" .. :-/ ,
But it does forget other things also now, like the alsamixer that was saved in terminal (and I did remove the volume % level in the bootconfig file) but it did not work, the headphone and other things did not stay up at 100% after reboot.
So some things DO work ..and some did not , now after reboot
I assume it is 2-3 files involved here, the 0099 settings in base folder, and the changes-module and psc from modules-folder,
So They all seems loaded but something dont work ok,
( they seems to load OK when I check the log and look at startup screen, .. )
Are the Passwd in the PSC-module AND ALSO in the 0099settings?
(It seems to fall back to settings from the isoconfigurator. (where languages and volume dont work)
Are language, firewall and sound in the "changes"-module? If so that is the module that dont always work, even if it is loaded.
Thanks, I Hope this helps
