I am not sure how to get that issue over here.
So, if you want to pursue things, provide me with that ISO.
Hi burdi01,
Here's another ISO with this bug.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/scc7zzll6 ... 4.iso/file
Apparently this bug occurs with all Porteus versions based on arch.

This ISO does not boot under VirtualBox (hangs on "Live system is ready now - starting Porteus") nor when dd'ed to a USB stick (asis not at all, after hybridization fails to mount /dev/sdc1).
Actually I was interested in the LinuxWelt ISO, not in a "random" APorteus one.
:D

Have you tried extracting the iso and put the kernel initrd and modules on the drive itself?
Cheers!

No, I have not. Partly because I think creating a bootable USB stick from an ISO should be like as I mentioned, and partly because I do not have the time right now. Adding this to my todo list ...

I am not surprised at all. Great catch!

Maybe experienced user could go and comment the last review that was posted on distrowatch:
