Every boots up of Porteus on the init step - X does not started, I see this error and I start X manually.
I always start Porteus is text mode (cheatcode "3") and start it manually from a guest virtual terminal, I presume that's the reason why I did not get any errors running the 5.4.19 kernel.

[HOWTO] figure out if you have a pure x86_64 system

presumably, if another 5.0* built module is subsequently activated, it would then overwrite it with a symlink again... the reverse is true for a module built for 5.0* activated in 4.0* .. So, when the path got got overwritten by a symlink… what happens to the files in path? Are they gone/invisible ...

Porteus Kernel Builder

The kernel difference of yours and mine is "5.4.18 built with NVidia driver" and "5.4.18 built without NVidia driver". Excuse me for analyzing no more deep. I have no knowledge on NVidia. As you can see here Porteus 5.0rc1 NVidia 340.108 driver for older hardware (Post by Rava #75952) the NVidia dr...

[HOWTO] figure out if you have a pure x86_64 system

Please look into the module that contains flashplayer-plugin-32.0.0.303-x86_64-1 if that is the one that overwrote the symlink of /var/log/packages to /var/lib/pkgtools/packages .

[HOWTO] figure out if you have a pure x86_64 system

:hmmm: In my system, /var/log/packages is a symlink: # file /var/log/packages /var/log/packages: symbolic link to ../lib/pkgtools/packages Maybe one module or another overwrote that symlink and created /var/log/packages as folder? Then we can consider that module as broken. Just check what /var/lib...

The problem is not an iso file it's a tar file neko created, I suspect using the new zstd standard. 64bit-ALL-kernel5.4.18.tar
Indeed, you need to have xz-64bit-ALL-kernel5.4.18.tar when you use xz compressed modules.

Porteus Kernel Builder

Hi neko, with the correct xz compressed modules and the 5.4.18 kernel the 340.108 Nvidia driver compiled and ran okay. Still, for now I cannot use it since only after compiling and testing the NVidia driver I realized that the kernel and/or 000-kernel failed to initialize the sound card. Any sound p...

[Solved] Include mini-browser Netsurf in the future

Netsurf looks small and quite nice. I am trying out netsurf-3.9-x86_64-1alien right now. It is small and looks okay, but… My main issue: I prefer a dark GUI, in Palemoon I love using the AdvancedNightMode AddOn. Any ideas how such dark display can be accomplished with Netsurf? In its settings, there...

Porteus 5.0 NVidia driver for older hardware

Managed to get a newer kernel running, with these NVidia compile modules. I all gave them a prefix of XXX so that I can use load=XXX for loading the needed modules. I also noload=000-kernel to not load the standard 5.0rc1 kernel 000-kernel.xzm module. The kernel used was 5.4.18_x86_64 from neko's t...
