Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

Generally a virus mutates into a slightly weaker form. A virus doesn't want to kill it's host. It needs the host to survive. I certainly hope the mutation will be less deadly. In any case there will certainly be a second wave. A virus of this magnitude is unheard of. Brazil is quite relaxed about it...

Porteus v5.0rc1 problems

@Ed_P don't do that. You uncommented slackware-13.37 which was even before slackware-14. Find another current mirror. @nanZor you can invoke a su GUI by using pkexec. Even better use our own script. /opt/porteus-scripts/org/psu /usr/bin/gparted (psu is porteus su) Please be aware that the kernel and...

Porteus to Micro-SD-CARD boot - easy!

A few of the Intel Computesticks allow for booting from the micro-sd-card slot, (they actually show up as hard drives in the bios), and this little adapter trick made doing a bootable sd-card very easy.
Thanks. I have one of these and I hadn't thought of that.
