restarting USM??

Ed There is nothing wrong. This MESSAGE [Usm is already active..and so on] is/was always there after an usm -u all update. No action like rm /var/lock/usm required. Simply rerun the search <package> command. [ usm -g thunder in your example ] EDIT If you have created the 4 empty files in /var/usm/sl...

restarting USM??

apparently not in the right format. The files in /var/usm/slacky should be readable like txt files not *.gz etc. [ compare them with the files in e.g. /var/usm/slackware/ ] I know how to unzip the .gz files but what do I do with the .bz2 one? bzip2 -d MANIFEST.bz2 but you want an OPTIFEST file in t...

restarting USM??

Yup, seems I can't get packages which are flagged "from slackwarepatches".. Tried with random packages from the /var/usm/slackwarepatches/PACKAGES.TXT file. ( not sure if i ever got one in the past) Everything else does work. Databases are updated - no stop because of usm errors - download,fetching ...

restarting USM??

You're doing it wrong. :) -- just kidding. :) You will only get this error if you have never updated Slacky before - when it was still working. Now what? a) remove slacky from the DISTROS line [/etc/usm/usm.conf] to update the other databases with usm -u all b) Add Slacky back to the DISTROS line c)...

usm error

Yep, forget the slacky crap, the mirrors [etc/usm/mirrors-slacky.txt] do not work at all or deliver wrong files. example: [ slackware.org.uk/slacky chosen in mirrors-slacky.txt ] check the file (copied from /var/usm/slacky/) guest@porteus:~/Test$ file CHECKSUMS.md5.gz CHECKSUMS.md5.gz: HTML document...

usm error

There must be a way to remove slacky from the code. Hi francois remove slacky from the DISTROS line: DISTROS="slackware slackwarepatches salix alien ponce slackonly" in /etc/usm/usm.conf root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -u all Starting slackware database update Downloading: vercheck.txt DONE Downloadi...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

^ Thanks for the info. I created a zstd-1.3.0-i586-1_slonly.xzm but even when activated I still get the same error: Yep, scripts [rpm2xzm] do not work. but you can try to build your module by hand. if you have the redshift-1.12-7.1.i586.cpio.zstd file + zstd, uncompress it: zstd -d <file> (you may ...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

@Rava
I've read they changed the compression format.
Unpacking the rpm [p7zip GUI] gives a redshift-1.12-7.1.i586.cpio.zstd file.

zstd was not on my system [3.2.2], but there is a zstd-1.3.0-i586-1_slonly.txz

[Info] ffmpeg encoding

Hi Rava....may I? ffmpeg If you just want to copy the audio stream without re-encoding just do: [Example] ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -vn -acodec copy audio_out.aac -vn is no video. -acodec copy says use the same audio stream that's already in there. ffmpeg -i video.mp4 will give you the audio/video format ...

Xfce 4.12 (for Porteus 5 RC2)

Hmm..mediafire says
Uploaded: 2021-01-12 22:16:30

I got this one: [md5sum]
f8494554c2ac62b72a8257aefb581f1c 003-xfce-4.12-20210112.xzm

Is this the new module?

Providing md5 sums would be really helpful. ;)

Cinnamon v5.0rc2 64-bit not working for me unless in always fresh mode

Are additional modules being loaded? -- remove them.

Boot in "always fresh" mode > rename the changes folder and create a new/empty one > reboot.
Does it work now?

ffplay-gtk-1.9 for all porteus versions

Hi Rava Nice script. B) I have only mp4 or webm videos and every Title has its own folder with the parts in it. [ named 01-title.mp4, 02- ,03 etc.] So if I'm really too lazy to click one after the other I could do something like this: find /mnt/sda4/Professor-T/ -type f -name "*.mp4" | sort | while ...
