How to cause a program to look into a specific folder for its own libraries

I did not mention "libreoffice" in the subject because this is a general question that applies to any situation similar to this one and its answer can benefit many Porteus users who are facing a similar question. I am sure one of you experienced developers has an easy solution for this problem. Spec...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

UPDATE: Downloaded, compiled and installed latest version of gargantuan gdb as required by libreoffice's error output. Now, make has happily resumed compiling and libreoffice is cumbersomely approaching its 51st hour of compilation :shock: EDIT 20201118: Nope, it did not work after all. Subsequent, ...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

@ncmprhnsbl Thanks so much for your suggestions and input! Very much appreciated, and yes, the trick is to experiment with it until satisfactory ... I'll get to it once I'm done with libreoffice. Which brings me to: I know that installing libreoffice on a minimalistic system does not make any sense ...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

@neko How do I upload my basic kernel .config file, so that you can take a look at it (if you are still interested)? Maybe I am way too old-fashioned, but I don't like automated processes where you are detached from what is going on. In order to get it to the point where I was satisfied with it, I m...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

@cad Would you upload your minimum Porteus 4.0 ISO for us? It would be a lot of work to do so because when making my minimalistic Porteus 4.0 i586 LXDE did not have in mind sharing it, so it is highly personalized with data that would be inappropriate to share. But I can tell you exactly how it was...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

libldap.so and liblber.so symlinks (to /usr/lib/libldap-2.4.so.2.10.8 and /usr/lib/liblber-2.4.so.2.10.8) missing in Porteus 4.0 32-bit 001-core.xzm. I downloaded Porteus 4.0 LXDE i586 from dl.porteus.org about ten days ago and while compiling them in it, both claws-mail and libetpan came to a halt ...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

I have one last question before I permanently wrap my shrunken system all up and call it good. I am so grateful for the knowledge given me here over the past couple of days. Thanks so much, ncmprhnsbl, for all your input! So, the question is: in the past, each time I modified a Porteus module (such ...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

@ncmprhnsbl Thanks for the link to mtpaint-3.50! I had looked at his old webpage on sourceforge which indicated development ending in 2011. That, plus the fact mtpaint was not present in Porteus 3.2 (at least not in the XFCE flavor of it) made me assume it was gone for good. But then again, why has ...

How to properly uninstall packages from uncompressed .xzm modules

Hello everyone, this is my first post on this board, though I have used Porteus since ver. 3.2. This is a great distro and I am truly thankful to all of you who with all your work have made it possible! I have recently re-compiled the 4.16.3 kernel for Porteus 4.0 XFCE (for a couple of older P4 lapt...
