Porteus Kernel Builder

I don think there will be any noticeable speed boost. As discussed long ago , Porteus boots to Desktop in 12 seconds(AUFS), and 10 seconds with Nekoś overlay and with application modules compressed with zstd. If you see dmesg, Kernel completes its main job in under 2 seconds further delay of 4-7 sec...

Memory usage

Normally,I don't have a look at the memory usage. Today, I was using Porteus-5.0rc2 and surprised to notice the following.. Vivaldi-3.2.1967.41 (Stable channel) (64-bit) - 1150.4 MB with one tab open; XFCE-4.16 - 454.2 MB Vivaldi has packed lots of " field trail handles" to help in their development...

Great Little Radio Player-1.5

I could get the latest GLRP-1.5 working in Porteus-5.0rc2-x86_64. The recent one has done away with KDE's Phonon framework. All required QT5 libraries are inbuilt. I have installed Gstreamer-1.18 with all required plugins. Comes with a new Stations list. An older version GLRP-1.6 with Phonon back en...

2020 Updated Nemesis Base Modules

In future please include Netsurf Browser in 'base' both in Nemisis and Porteus. I think no browser should be pre-selected for any of our OS, be it nemesis or Porteus, unlike e.g. lynx or links. *Besides, having the need to update a ISO to add ones choice in browser is a good learning experience for...

ffplay-gtk-1.9 for all porteus versions

ffplay even from the terminal uses 30 percent more cpu power, And for some reason, the program does not close on media end. Looks like it is not recognizing end of playing media. One has to use ctl+c to get back to prompt. Now if you close the app, CPU usage doesn't come down and you have a bunch of...

deploy a USM like package manager for Porteus-current

rava, I would request you to use night curfew in your place, to effectively deploy a USM like package manager for Porteus-current. Without one such program, Porteus- slackware becomes user unfriendly as individuals can not add their favourite programs. Otherwise it is time to step up main streaming ...
