Get version 3.9 from this link, https://slackware.uk/people/alien/sbrepos/current/x86/netsurf/netsurf-3.9-i586-1alien.tgz as I wrote, I already did: downloaded netsurf-3.9-i586-1alien.tgz but that needs libssl.so.1.1 and libcrypto.so.1.1, so also downloaded openssl-1.1.1j-i586-1.txz and inserted th...

memusage via free -k test - uxterm vs xfce4-terminal

Since in older Porteus versions uxterm was called a light-on-resources terminal emulator, I put it to the test: uxterm vs xfce4-terminal. System: Porteus 5.0rc XFCE with Xfce v4.12. I created a variant of my fx alias (fx runs free -m) called fX that runs free -k. No other programs have been started ...

Porteus 5.0rc1 and rc2 NVidia 340.108 driver for older hardware for kernel 5.4.30

Any chance to get this for kernel 5.4.50? Like I wrote Finally managed to create it: the NVidia 340.108 driver for older hardware for kernel 5.4.30, compiled under Porteus 5.0rc1. Kernel 5.4.30 is already newer than what is officially supported by the driver. I would love to compile the needed NV d...

netsurf for Porteus 4.0

Anyone up to the task? I tried manually creating netsurf but that failed due to GLIBC issues: downloaded netsurf-3.9-i586-1alien.tgz but that needs libssl.so.1.1 and libcrypto.so.1.1, so also downloaded openssl-1.1.1j-i586-1.txz and inserted the libs and symlinks. Resulted in this: $ netsurf-gtk net...

[Suggestion] man-pages modules for all base modules

A good suggestion Rava . Normally when I need help with a question or problem about a command I use Google. For offline scenarios your suggestion is perfect. Might even be a quicker solution to problems without using Google. :happy62: It depends, duckduckgo gives you solutions as well… but your lea...

Today I made another inspirational spontaneous dish that resulted in yummy. I had fresh curcuma roots (as in the ground spice) and added white cabbage, green mild pepper and red hot pepper (only a bit since that one had seeds and the seeds are the ones that make them very hot) Since I was too lazy f...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Back to redshift: putting the needed command e.g. redshift -O 3700K into /etc/rc.d/rc.local not works, since at the time of executing /etc/rc.d/rc.local XWindows is not yet started. But for some weird reason putting guiexec=redshift~-O~3700K not works, either. When executing the same command with 37...
