Re: Porteus on the net

We need more external references for the wikipedia article, or else it might be deleted! I already mentioned one in the discussion page of the article asking where to put in that link, but at least one more external reference is needed!

Re: [HOWTO] boot from hard disk image file

Since I made an error resizing the current notebook's internal harddisk, this technique is tempting. But I ran Porteus 1.0 alpha and it seems it has at least one bug that the old Slax Remix (V08 or V09) also had: running LXDE there was one icon from the quickstart icons (at the panel, just right bes...

Re: [IMPORTANT] Boot loader for next release.

BTW - switching to Porteus-v09 is obligatory as slax-remix is unsupported now - officially :) Ohhhh... kay, then I do that as fast as I manage (which means: it takes a bit since I highly tweaked Slax 6.1.2 and Slax remix and will do so with Porteus as well... and so it takes a bit of time... Anyway...

Re: Forum bugs

One question on the "thanks"... why can I thank on posts... like in this thread, but not on others, like in the "non-root-user" thread?

Re: [IMPORTANT] Boot loader for next release.

Speaking about the boot loader... should I post an article of how to install Porteus on a Win7 PC (you know, the Windoze system using a hidden from windoze boot partition at the very beginning...) using NeoGrub, since that means you have to solve some minor issues, and the menu.lst looks different a...

Re: Non-Root-User

for module activation and similar you can write a script using sudo and configure /etc/sudoers to not ask password at all user user=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/activate *.lzm this is a smaller security issue than run everything as root... You could also open just one TAB or one terminal as root and use activ...

Non-Root-User

What with the idea of having a generic "non-root" user, and that that one is the one starting X with KDE / XFCe / whatever, including a tutorial how to "su" into root via shell... like when one wants to use konqueror to activate modules... My approach is: even when I run a Linux, and with the "alway...

Re: Forum bugs

When you choose the language it should say "Deutsch DE" instead of "Deutsch Du"

Or is the "Du" meant as "informal language / German" instead of the short for "Deutsch"

Then... tell me so and I am off for some :wall:
