250mb seems about right for the large ISOs.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -s /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus*.iso
258348 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v3.2rc3-x86_64.iso*
258004 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v3.2rc3x-x86_64.iso*
189884 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-LXQT-v3.1-x86_64-nu.iso*
190728 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-LXQT-v3.1-x86_64.iso*
186292 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-RazorQT-v3.0.1-i486-nu.iso*
219276 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-RazorQT-v3.0.1-i486.iso*
194332 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-RazorQT-v3.0.1-x86_64-nu.iso*
228072 /mnt/sda5/ISOs/Porteus-RazorQT-v3.0.1-x86_64.iso*

Try the LXQT iso.

No, not broken. That sounds right.

so what to do???
Use the xfce4 release which is the lightweight one.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
