TERM=xterm-256color

I can't find the script setting "TERM=xterm-256color" on my system. And it seems to break wine related programs (complains: 'xterm-256color': unknown terminal type.) Setting it back to TERM=xterm seems to solve it. I say "back to" because on my previous USB with LXDE it is indeed TERM=xterm -- I've ...

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

neko , I successfully boot after a few restarts always. This problem only happens on the new Dell computers with /dev/nvme host system disk drives which do not claim the names /dev/sda. So, /dev/sda become partitions of my USB drive. That's unusual. I'm used to seeing my USB disk to be sdb etc. I t...

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

francois , bootloader? You mean `porteus.cfg`? The relevant entry looks like this, and I think I only added login=root to APPEND: LABEL GRAPHICAL MENU LABEL Graphics mode KERNEL /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz INITRD /boot/syslinux/initrd.xz APPEND changes=/porteus login=root When successfully booted, the o...

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

In my case it's just a thumb drive: I reboot the whole computer and it (the porteus partition) gets eventually recognized. I'm thinking of trying a different USB brand, not SanDisk.

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

Code: Select all

from=/dev/sda2
also didn't work, complaining that from= cheatcode is incorrect, press enter for the list of devices or something.

Reboot and pray is my only solution so far

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

Thanks @Ed I've added literally without double quotes: from=UUID:04defda4-a423-4e51-8485-8b65e657213e and the boot didn't go through complaining about the "from" cheatcode and no such device It's always /dev/sda2 for me, so I'm going to try adding simply from=/dev/sda2 Will report tomorrow. Although...

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

I increased the SLEEP to 15 in two places where previously it specified 6 in `finit`, which made it even worse: couldn't go past the 15 sec wait at all no matter how many restarts -- had to fall back to the original `initrd.xz`

LXDE: PCManFM freezes all the time

mbos , yes, Leafpad would crash on me too sometimes. The problem is upstream, or the way they work with GTK2. The solution is as follows: switch to the OpenBox porteus -- it's very similar to LXDE anyway, even better. Its native file manager (and desktop manager?) is SpaceFM. Now, very important: g...

QtFM for OpenBox

Works well and is quite pleasant and light. I already use the Qt5 module(s) for other things anyway, so didn't have to activate anything else. Thank you once again, @ncmprhnsbl!

searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

I suspect that the problem is on the level of partition, before file system. Besides, the first partition regardless it containing NTFS or FAT32, is not the one marked as a boot partition: # parted -l Model: SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 30.8GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B...

update-firefox proxy authorization

I've ended up using a wrapper script `lynx` which reads the credentials off the environment proxy variable and feeds them to the actual lynx: https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... horization

(NVMe?) searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

Booting from my new USB, after the initial menu, the screen shows searching for porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file device not ready yet? delaying 6 seconds At this moment when lucky it just goes through. But usually it times out and displays: searching for porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file device not ready yet...
