Porteus-CINNAMON-v5.0-x86_64 does not detect wifi

sharo boot your Porteus 5.0rc3 ISO, then run my wifi script I posted above for the wifi ucode that works, take the resulting xzm module and put it in the USB's /porteus/modules folder, reboot.

Support for Intel(R) Iris(R) Xe Graphics?

Your setup looks strange. Why didn't you simply copy all the ISO files to the USB drive? No renaming necessary. And are you using grub or grub2? These are the grub2 menus for my USB drive. menuentry " Porteus 5.0 USB - AF'" --class slackware --class icon-porteus { set porteus_parms="volume=33 reboot...

Installation failed with error code '2'

do I need to add this line "from=/mnt/sdb2" to the to the porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file? No. What OS are you running the install from? I seem to remember getting the code 2 error when I installed 5.0 to a new USB drive but when I reran it it worked. I think I was running it from a bash script I use ...

should I go for EFI method or BIOS method, if I have UEFI
EFI

I use USB drives 32 GB, or smaller, and format the whole drive as FAT32, copy all the ISO folders and files to the drive then run the Porteus-installer for the system I am running.

Porteus-v5.0x86_64_bugs reports

The browser window always opening to full screen is annoying, and clicking to minimize it results in a screen size and position I have never set which is equally annoying.

I still don't quite understand the principle of the dat container.
It's an easy approach for users who want to save their changes on non-Ext drives, like exFAT USB drives, and don't know how to make modules.

Porteus menu's Reboot option doesn't work. /EFI/boot/ missing reboot.c32. And the boot menu's TimeOut value doesn't give new users time to review the new menu options. 90 should be changed to 300, or at least 200. :)

the current version of mksquashfs has the -no-strip parameter which preserves the full path. So we can run it on the actual mounted union directory we're trying to preserve in the module
And do the current Porteus 5.0 ISOs have this version of mksquashfs? :%)
