Porteus-v5.0x86_64_bugs reports

@AcnapyxoB Good news. You solved it for me. I inserted the xml file into the module and now VB works as root and as guest. I am very glad. Thanks very much again. :thumbsup: Have been slowly adding more work to my Porteus installation ( Win11 Pro is primary OS ) and decided today to see if I could ...

Running smooth & had 1rst Updater

My Porteus 5.0 Cinnamon has worked flawlessly. Had my first Porteus Updater work this morning.... think it was my first (??). Updated the 001-core & 002-xorg. Got brave last night 'n tried to create that 515.57 Nvidia module - [HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card - that ncmprhnsbl ...

slapt-get: slapt-get is an APT like system for Slackware package management.

OK...I've been trying to figure out how to get packages easier than lots of searching 'n asking. Apparently I just got slapt-get working, installed 'n updated. Thanks ! Then got a gimp that actually works ( newer version didn't work ), but I can't find where the module is!? OK...guess the slapt-get...

Which Desktop for daily student use

I'm a 76 year old man who has no clue what an "engineering student" needs. ;) Win11 Pro is my primary OS, so I like the Cinnamon DE, but use the KDE on some Linux OSes that don't offer the Cinnamon. KDE requires more work to setup, usually , IMHO. I use Porteus 5.0 Cinnamon as my main ' Working ' Li...

Distrowatch Hit Ranking

Distrowatch hit rankings are totally irrelevant and have been for many years. Best to ignore the rankings either pro or con. I use it to see what new Distros are out. They were caught cheating on their ranking by hits a few years back, and then blamed their users for cheating. :ROFL: MX Linux, Ende...

ext4 or xfs? Nvidia module/s?

yeah, the blacklist nouveau is included in the 08-nvidia* modules (which is why you end up with the 640x480 framebuffer driver if the nvidia driver fails for some reason) so, at least two possibilities: 1. that it's not possible to build the driver/kernel module without the correct hardware (it tel...

Can't figure out how to exit X server for the 515 driver...will probably need to disable nouveau driver permanently (?). Installing then would probably require Ctrl+Alt+F1 back to TTY console, then login 'n cd to Downloads 'n enter - sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-515.57.run - something like I use to do ...
