from_dir=/port32 I try to learn how to use this properly but my poor brain is very dense.
So would be cool to have friendly suggestions on what to try.
Reading about Porteus I found that you guys accept that one do frugal installs. Very happy about that.
But a problem happens when one have several Linux distros that all of them use boot as name on a dir or folder.
Now I try to solve it by writing name of distro and boot. like this.
and so on. Example
Code: Select all
title Porteus OS rootnoverify (hd0,2) kernel /porteusboot/vmlinuz rw changes=/porteus/slaxsave.dat initrd /porteusboot/initrd.lz
multilple porteus os on the same partition
http://porteus.org/forum/viewtopic.php? ... D%2Fport32
Now I don't have several Porteus but instead several linux distros that all of them want the boot dirunpack porteus ISO's to subfolders ie, /mnt/sda2/port32 and /mnt/sda2/port64
c) use "from_dir=/port32" and "from_dir=/port64" cheatcodes respectively
read /boot/docs/cheatcodes.txt for more info and additional improvements.
to be named just that. So should I change my current code then to this ?
Code: Select all
title Porteus OS rootnoverify (hd0,2) kernel /port32/boot/vmlinuz rw from_dir=/port32 changes=/port32/slaxsave.dat initrd /port32/boot/initrd.lz
What about other Slax like variations of Slackware like Vector, Slabix, Wolvix, Goblin, NimbleX
Parted Magic, Compact Disk Linux, CDLinux, others that I don't know of or remember now.
My current solution is to separate them with renaming boot to porteusboot and renaming boot to pmagicboot
would this from_dir=/port32 be a better solution and how do I make use of it?
Don't tell me to read some manual or FAQ or Wikka or such because due to severe reading difficulty
such text only makes me totally lost having not a clue what to do after reading them. I am very dense but love
computers. Have booted some 75 distros and have currently at least 5 different frugal installs on my ntfs hdd
So only need some basic examples how the code should look like.
I log out and test to see if I can boot with that later code.

Nope that did not work I had to place the porteus dir outside of
the port32 dir. then it booted. And all seems to work.
But I fail to understand that code from_dir=/port32 is it only needed
if one have two Porteus? None of the other Slax varieties are close
enough to get in trouble?
