The update script is using the command ping and ip. Please run the following command from a root console (The little black TV thingy --> type: su --> type toor)

Code: Select all

ping -q -w 1 -c 1 `ip r | awk '/default/{print$3}'|head -n1`
If this fails you will need to open a file and comment out some code.

Added in 3 minutes 17 seconds:
The file is: /usr/share/porteus/porteus-functions
The line is: 178

Once you edit it. Copy it to the following location of your Poreus install like so:

Code: Select all

cp -a --parents /usr/share/porteus/porteus-functions /mnt/sdXY/porteus/rootcopy
where sdXY is the partition of your Porteus install. Hope that helped a little.
