That is why I use a .dat savefile and run in readonly mode.

Resize Porteus?

I have had that same problem searching Porteus forums. Try searching with your favorite search engine. Type "site:" without the quotes just before the main website text.
Like so for debian pkgs --- https://packages.site:debian.org/jessie/allpackages SEARCH-TERM
It works for me.

Try Linux distros via distrotest.net

OnWorks does similar and has networking. Distrotest indicated people used internet access for nefarious purposes. So far OnWorks has not been abused.

Useful (hidden) tools

I like to go through the /bin and /sbin folders and click away! Sometimes I open a terminal and copy/paste/execute the file name just to see what happens. It's fun.

Windows 7 PE Builder

On the Puppy Linux forum I casually mentioned Gandalf's PEs and everyone pointed their cursors at me and said DO NOT talk about illegal stuff !

Is it cool on this forum? I hope...

Evan was before my time and I have seen posts from him without any content besides <deleted>. I am curious as to what happened.

Re: How to transfer files from unbootable PC over the network?

Anyone still interested in Qshare? I have a module that works on my 3.1 32 bit kde. I also have Dukto and a couple java apps called p300 and lanxchange that work really well. All four programs are available for ms windows too. Before I found Qshare I was using a Puppy Linux called Pupserver 435. If ...

Re: Are posts in other languages translated to english?

Cool. I have not used google for quite some time, so I forgot about that feature.

If only DDG did that.

Thanks, Ed_P

Are posts in other languages translated to english?

I am just curious whether the posts in other languages are integrated (translated) into the english only section or is that possibly relevant information never to be read by english only readers, like me.

Re: DuckDuckGo and other Porteus support

I like being able to manually enter the "t=porteus" . if I am on a library computer, for instance.

On my home computers I save the url as a bookmark, which enables the "t=porteus" automagically.

Thanks for the info.

Re: DuckDuckGo and other Porteus support

If I insert "t=porteus" into the DDG url when I am on another operating system, like MS Windows using internet exploder, does Porteus get anything from it?

That would be funny. And cool.

Re: Virtualbox and Windows 7

Vbox builder is cool. When it is done you will have a module that can be put in the modules folder, which will activate on boot.

In Vbox you will need to create a new VM and point it to the downloaded image I mentioned earlier.

Vbox works GREAT on my Porteus 3.1 KDE.
