restarting USM??

You will only get this error if you have never updated Slacky before - when it was still working. I've used USM for years with Porteus 4.0 so pretty sure the files are there. However guest@porteus:~$ ls -l /var/usm/slacky total 40 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12680 Mar 8 13:22 CHECKSUMS.md5.gz -rw-r--r--...

PORTEUS DESKTOP 4. not found my HDD

Hello pedro,

Try FAT32 or exFAT.

no WIFI

I think a new Porteus version (e.g. v5.0rc3 or v5.1) is long overdue. :D PS: Why does the Porteus website still guide new users to download Porteus v4.0? :(( Because that is the current production version of Porteus. 5.0 is still in development. And yes, long overdue. The pandemic hasn't helped and...
