Porteus unintentially truncates files

looks like leafpad needs to be built with this patch: https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=2a58c0bbe20e4e31e68f826fa0197deb7ea91f9a edit: and looking at the source of l3afpad, something similiar might be relevant there too.. i'm guessing the remaining data is physically still on the ...

I'll take a look at that thread. Maybe it will lead me to a bin file that I can just drop in to /modules. Thanks. with linux, hardware drivers and the like are mostly in the kernel.. the good news is: changing a kernel in porteus is relatively simple. 1. choose a kernel form this topic: Porteus Ker...

bash script coding question

that or a different aproach: use an array: g=(one two three) echo echo 1. ${g[0]} echo echo 2. ${g[1]} echo echo 3. ${g[2]} echo read -p "Select 1, 2 or 3: " Nbr echo Game=${g[$Nbr-1]} output: 1. one 2. two 3. three Select 1, 2 or 3: 3 Game=three or to avoid the -1 part, have a 'dummy' first array e...

Midori instead of Lynx for faqs

i think the trick with midori seems to be building webkit2gtk without a bunch of functions.. eg. here's an idea of the stuff to turn off: https://github.com/kisslinux/community/blob/master/community/webkit2gtk/build probly streaming being the main one, so as not to pull in gstreamer.. looking at sli...

Update: WEIRD - I can run fsck after the boot on mmc devices, but get no warning about needing a newer version of e2fsck! yeah, when run at boot time, e2fsck in initrd is used (/mnt/live/usr/bin/e2fsck) , after boot, it's /sbin/e2fsck or fsck ... there was an update of the bins in initrd (all 32bit...

Porteus 5.0 RC2 bug reports

Very nice! That seemed to have fixed the problem, albeit the option doesn't seem to get written to the porteus.cfg file at the very end, and the util doesn't bring up an editor to check it, like leafpad or whatever. I also checked the porteus-5.0-x86_64cfg file too just in case it was placed there,...

Live-System invitation from AntiX

Is this a call for a nemesis upgrade and collaboration? Would we get some help to refine brokenman's pman module manager with artix enthusiasts? AntiX (with an 'n') is not artix(with an 'r') :D and certainly, one day, when time permits, AntiX could be part of a possible pathway to a debian (ish) ba...

.txt files - prompt - bug?

Text files are not executable in my world. well, nemo doesn't go by file extensions when it comes to executability(even if there's nothing in it to execute).. it only has the file permission to go by.. do ls -l <your_text_file> see any x 's ? of course, if the file is on(or comes from) a non POSIX ...
