Is it possible to install porteus on eMMC ?

If using EFI you need not use the installer. Just copy the porteus iso contents to the mmc drive. You need to disable secure boot though. If non-efi, copy the iso contents onto the mmc drive and follow the instructions in the USB_INSTALLATION.txt file. If still does not work, you might have to use t...

Is it possible to install porteus on eMMC ?

I see, so it is booting from mmc, but the problem is that the card is mounted at mmcblkxxx and the installer does not think that is a valid external drive, could you verify?

Is it possible to install porteus on eMMC ?

Maybe the eMMC driver or firmware for your hardware is not built in the kernel.

Provide the output of these commands:
lscpi -knn
dmesg

Realtek 8723DE wifi on Porteus?

If you share us the documented solutions and the instructions from the vendor that you got for the other distros, we might be able to better help you.

For git, get and activate the 05-devel module from here - http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/Porteus-v5.0/kernel/

Knowing your Changes and Save.dat file size and usage

Any way to see Porteus save file size? Guessing you mean usage. Size is a simple matter of performing ls -lh on the .dat file. Assuming save file not in use, has a filesystem on it and not encrypted, mkdir /mnt/tmp mount -o loop path-to-savefile.dat /mnt/tmp df -h /mnt/tmp If your savefile does not...

porteus/modules not activating module

As far as I remember, Porteus deactivates the vbox module once the drivers are loaded. Try this: Move the vbox xzm to base directory (for you that is /mnt/sda1/porteus/base) and rename it to 000-virtbox.xzm If still unable to resize: - Ensure 000-virtbox.xzm is still present in /mnt/live/memory/imag...

Start-up lag on KDE

Do they mean that my CPU clock is running 329 minutes behind? 329 (330) minutes is 5 hours 30 minutes. GMT + 5.30 is Indian Standard Time (IST) ;) If I were to assume, whatever way you fixed your time here [Solved] Date and Time setting not working gets set after cron is activated. See how the time...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

There's a difference between what is over-written (overlayed) on the aufs mounts vs what has been already loaded onto the ram. For example, if you replace the kernel or the initrd on your file system, it does not automatically replace the running kernel, or the initrd that have been already loaded o...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

At this point it has been proven that the 3.0.1 vmlinuz and 000-kernel files are not the fix to getting 3.2.2 or 4.0 to signon to the wifi connections. Not so sure, that be the case. The initrd loads the extramods much later in the boot process. By then the original kernel and its drivers would hav...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

You know the goal is to un-/reload the driver after changes have been made (firmware),do you? ;) Kinda pointless question, seeing who suspected and confirmed the firmware was missing and suggested the un/reloading of the driver in the first place :) Here you have another one :D #!/bin/bash if lsmod...

Maybe better to remaster the ISO - add the 3.0.1 vmlinuz and 000-kernel into the 4.0 one and recreate the iso.

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

Small problem here, if ipw2200 is not loaded the first command fails and hence the second command of actual modprobe wont work.... That's right, but based on the previous posts, you can almost certainly say that ipw2200 was always loaded. ;) If you were certain, then just the second command would'v...

Ed, use root@porteus:/home/guest# modprobe -r ipw2200 && modprobe ipw2200 (without any path) while 3.2.2 is running. This should un-/reload the driver.It may or may not help. [There will be no output > when done check the wifi.] I see 4.19.113 in the port-4 output, where does this come from? Please...
