Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

The delta variant is rapidly spreading. Even vaccinated people are getting infected, although the symptoms are milder. The incidence is very high (more than doubles the one reached in the 3rd wave). Let's hope the full vaccination dose reaches soon to the younger population, the main focus of expans...

My Acer Aspire One 722 is not an EFI system
The real challenge is getting a USB drive that boots in all scenarios.

As for saving changes, there's no need to create a separate partition. In Porteus you can store your changes by creating a container file

Porteus on UEFI-ONLY: rock solid boot!

an interesting experiment is to try exFAT Then you'll need a UEFI exFAT driver Have a look at the main page for other drivers. I'm having 2 USB sticks too. One for my HP desktop which supports BIOS legacy/UEFI, and one for a laptop EFI only system. If I'm not mistaken, a default EFI system which in...

Nemesis Porteus System Clock from RTC and UTC vs. Local

Hi rych I found out that you have to be careful when setting the system time and maybe hardware clock because you may end changing the host hardware clock. (Are you dualbooting ?) My setup is like this: In $BOOTDEV/config/time I have this line commented #HWCLOCK=yes Only TIMEZONE, NTP_SERVERS and EN...

2021 Updated Nemesis Base Modules

mousepad (0.5.5-2) was resizing the window unexpectedly Ok, fixed with the usual: $ glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas Note: Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like recent ffmpeg versions depends on zimg and libgomp (from gcc-libs package). Since I was explicitly deleting that library in t...

Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

Anyhow, what kind of file is "runtime"? Is that created by mksquashfs ? I presume runtime is the binary AppRun injected by appimagetool in order to make the package executable. As stated, it is a deprecated method. You can find it here above the building section. Just follow the Packaging Guide inc...

With recent update, mousepad (0.5.5-2) was resizing the window unexpectedly, so I've been able to fixit by installing the previous version (0.5.4-1). Just download and downgrade: pacman -U m...

NNN terminal file-manager

From the same author of buku (terminal bookmark manager) , comes nnn terminal file-manager . At first glance, it seems pretty similar to ranger , lf and the like, but nnn is just a 125Kb binary (1,5 Mb if you want pretty icons) written in C that you can compile by yourself in no time because it has ...

Hi Ed. Bashtop only depends on coreutils and sed packages already in Porteus. ( Depends: bash (>= 4.4),curl (>= 7.16.2), coreutils, sed, awk, grep ) Some other Prerequisites include UTF8 locale set, unicode font and 24bit capable terminal. Since it only needs standard tools, I'm pretty sure you only...
