Slackware :: ClutchOS V12.2 A Pure 12.2 Live CD / USB With Persistence

Feb 27, 2010

why another slackish distro? Mine (will be) better than most Please try it before you criticize it It is quite unique in many ways I really did it to show how easily one can make their own 12.2 install into a live distro So, it is a proof-of-concept thing Desktop: My own JWM creation heavily based off Vector's JWM Display manager: Slim from Slackbuilds Packages: All pkg's are 12.2 slack, sbopkg's, and slapt-get/gslapt from Slacky, some others converted from absolute/salixos/source. I custom built the JWM desktop, systray-volume-control, and many from-scratch scripts.

Heres some of the pkg's Games: Xgalaga sbopkg Graphics: Gimp, Imagemagick Office: Abiword, Gaiksaurus, Xcalc Multimedia: Mplayer, XMMS, Audacious, Alsamixergui, Pulsaudio Alsaplayer, Isomaster Misc: Roxterm,rox-filer, PCMANFM, lxterminal, lxtask, leafpad xarchiver, catfish, lxappearance, nitrogen System: Gparted, ddrescue, testdisk, Gnome net tools, WICD wifi-radar, Gslapt, Network: Firefox, dillo, xchat, gftp, grsync

Debian Installation :: Live USB With Persistence

Oct 19, 2014

I copy the debian-live-7.6.0-i386-standard.iso to the usb. Now i can live boot into the usb.

I also follow the guide "10.3.1 The persistence.conf file" to make /dev/sda2 my persistence partition. When it boot up and i add the parameter "persistence" it will works. But i want to know how to make it automatically boot with the parameter?

My guess is that i have to make my own live cd then copy to the usb again. If that is it, any tutorial how to make live cd from the live cd i already downloaded?

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Live USB - Login Persistence

Jan 8, 2010

I've completed the creation of a Live USB 9.10 install/configuration. I'm booting from a 16GB Flash USB now, with just about everything working, audio, video, wireless, etc. I'd like to remove some of the "live" features of the OS now, to make it more a bootable 9.10 full install. The first step, is to remove the auto-login feature of the live setup. I tried setting a password on the ubuntu user, but it still auto-logins.

I have created a Fedora 15 live usb using LiLi-Usb with a persistence file of 2048mb, on a 4gb flash drive. What I would like to know is two things, will this allow me to update Fedora 15 on the flash drive?, and later, if I chose to install to the hard drive, will the updates cross over?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Create A Live USB With Or Without Persistence For Mac And Pc?

Jun 7, 2010

First things first, you will need:1GB or larger flash drive rEFIt (Link at the bottom) A linux installation, virtual machine, or live cdA Mac OS X installation/installation disk Administrator permissions gparted (comes on most linux live cd's) hfsplus/hfsprogs for hfs+ support in linux Alright Step one (in linux):Format your USB key with an MBR partiton table. Add an 8MB ext3 partition named "GRUB" for simplicity. Add a 16MB hfs+ partiton. Use the rest of your disk as FAT32. Step two (also in linux):Mount your ext3 GRUB partiton Open terminal and do "sudo grub-install --root-directory=<mountpoint> /dev/myusb", of couse replacing <mountpoint> with the mount point and myusb with the correct sdX. If you get an error saying that there is no bios boot partition (which you shouldn't), open gparted and select the grub partition and select the flag "bios_grub". Close GParted if it is open and reopen it.

Set the boot flag on the GRUB partition. Copy all of the contents of your live cd iso or cd (including the hidden folder ".disk") to your fat partiton. Skip the following steps in the step two if you don't want persistence In terminal create a zero'd out file called casper-rw in the fat partiton with "dd if=/dev/zero of=/media/LIVE/casper-rw". Replace the /media/LIVE with the mountpoint again.

Now type "mkfs.ext4 /path/to/casper-rw" and follow the instructions if there are any Step three (in mac):Open the rEFIt dmg and copy the "efi" folder to the hfs+ partiton. Locate the file called "" in the efi folder Open a terminal and type "sudo " and then the path to the (You can find it by dragging the file into the terminal) Step four:Reboot your computer holding the option key Select rEFIt on your USB drive (If it doesn't appear take it out and plug it back in or boot all the way up and then reboot again) Select "Linux on HD" that has a picture of a flash drive on it. You will now be at the GRUB prompt, so type the following:


root (hd0,3)
linux /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper persistent
initrd /casper/initrd.lz

Of course take out the persistent part if you didn't use the persistence file. [URL]

Ubuntu :: Create Live USB With Persistence Without Usb-creator?

Jun 16, 2011

I've tried using usb-creator to create a persistent live USB of Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, but the program is useless. There's a bug in the program that greys out the options to enable persistence (see here for bug info). I tried workaround #4 listed in that link, but that didn't work either. When I selected another .iso which I moved to the /tmp directory as stated, the "Make Startup Disk" option then became greyed out as well. It'll make a bootable live USB but I need persistence. Is there a good way to do this without using that program And I tried Unetbootin twice, and it wouldn't boot the live system at all. After seeing the Ubuntu splash screen it just stalled at a black screen forever.

Debian Installation :: Live System Working With Encrypted Persistence

Oct 28, 2014

I tried a while getting a live system working with encrypted persistence. The command

Code: Select alllive-persistence activate /dev/sdx2

works perfect, but boot time persistence works only for unencrypted storage. 'Cause I can not append the boot-log as file the most important part here:

Code: Select all+ tailpid=123
+ tail -f boot.log
+ cat /proc/cmdline
+ LIVE_BOOT_CMDLINE=BOOT_IMAGE=/live/vmlinuz boot=live noeject keyboard-layouts=de components persistence persistence-encryption=luks,none initrd=/live/initrd.img debug=true
+ Cmdline_old

[Code] ....

The most confusing line is "Warning: cryptsetup is unavailable" - I took a look into the scripts, it checks if cryptsetup and askpass is executable if not this message. But:

I mounted the hdd-img file local and took a look: all binaries there.

So I tried a lot getting it working on boot time. I tried it with live-tools from testing, from wheezy and last but not least installed and pinned live-tools to unstable. Always the same. askpass isn't executable on boot time before mounting the persistence.

Config is
Code: Select alllb config noauto
    --apt apt
    --bootstrap debootstrap
    --binary-images iso-hybrid
    --distribution testing

[Code] .....

(tried with binary-images=hdd, too)

and yes, cryptsetup is inside package-list (otherwise live-persistence from within running machine with crypted partitions would not work). Live tools I used for last run is 4.0.3-1 from unstable, before tried with 4.0.2-1 from testing.

Whats going wrong in boot system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Live Disc On The SD Card With Persistence Options?

Jun 18, 2010

I have an Eee PC with a dead Hdd. I brought it back to life by installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a 16GB SD card. It works 100% but is sluggish.Now I am wondering, from the standpoint of reducing SD card access and writes, would it have been better to create a Live Disc on the SD card with persistence options? What I am thinking is that a Live Disc is designed to run out of RAM, and would thus reduce the activity on the SD card. The only thing this netbook will get used for is the internet. It is a netbook, so the performance is limited, but as far as netbooks go, it is top of the line with dual core and discrete nvidia graphics.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Pure-ftpd Pure Admin - Getting A 530 Authentication Error

Mar 24, 2011

I am having problems troubleshooting my pure-ftpd setup. I am always getting a 530 authentication error. I attempted to correct the problem by doing the following:

# pure-pw mkdb
# ln -s /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/PureDB /etc/pure-ftpd/auth/PureDB
# gedit /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/PAMAuthentication


This create a new error. 421 Unable to read the indexed puredb file (or old format detected) - Try pure-pw mkdb I am getting a feeling this is getting from bad to worse. I attempted to remove pure-ftpd and pureadmin to start over again. However, it appears I cannot remove everything. I attempted the following:

apt-get remove pure-ftpd pureadmin I am not sure what this really does because I can still see the folder /etc/pure-ftpd and I cannot remove it. I could not use rm /etc/pure-ftpd because the system said it was not empty. I also tried sudo aptitude remove pure-ftpd pureadmin . Again I cannot completely remove the folder. How do I completely remove pure-ftpd and pure admin and all databases, files and folders so I have a fresh system ready to start the install again?

Software :: Pure-authd Not Passing Variables To Pure-ftpd

Feb 9, 2011

I have set up pure-authd and pure-ftpd. They are both running, I have created the socket etc.

In my authentication module (a php script) for testing purposes I have done a vardump in to a file, and have realised that pure-authd is not passing on any variables (username, password of the current person trying to log in via ftp) to the PHP script.

I am sure the authentication module is working (have tested it vigorously on the command line), but after 10 hours wondering why it wouldnt work and messing about with the script, I have realised that the variables were never even getting in to the script in the first place!

I am running the processes such as this:

Everything seems as if it is working other than this. For instance, when testing the setup with a very basic auth module which doesnt require a username or password (the basic module just passes "auth_ok:1" to pure-ftpd and the user is then logged in), I can log in to the FTP server fine.

But like I say, a vardump ($argv) on my proper PHP authentication script would suggest that no username or password are being passed to it.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 On USB Stick - Persistence Feature

Jun 18, 2010

The Pendrive Linux site states the following in regards to a USB Flash Install using their Universal USB Installer:
"Once finished, you should have a Live USB Ubuntu 10.0 that can be run directly from your Flash Drive, just as it does from a Live CD. Ubuntu's casper-rw feature IS ALSO utilized for persistently saving and restoring your changes on subsequent boots."

The part that confuses me is the second statement that the Casper-RW feature is utilized. Isn't that incorrect for the case of a Live Install using their Universal USB Installer? I later discovered that a Persistent Install can be created by downloading and using Version 2.5 of the Linux Live USB Creator. In this case, a second partition is created on the Flash drive for the casper rw feature. Is my understanding correct, or can the Pendrive Linux Universal Installer somehow create a persistent USB drive that will save data and settings?

Debian :: How To Get Persistence - No Grub On Install Drive

Apr 5, 2010

I am using this image of Debian: [URL]. But it doesn't matter what I do I fail to make it persistent.
I have tried this: [URL] But there is no "grub" on my "install" drive, apparently is an outdated notion.
I have tried this: [URL] (with conflicting info regarding the previous link). By booting with a knoppix USB with gparted. Doesn't matter if I leave the NTFS partition unnamed or call it home_rw, I get no persistence, even writing persistent while booting.
I have tried also changing this (while in knoppix): [URL]. Basically adding the word "persistent" after "live" but it does not work. All changes I make disappear. What it the current way of getting persistence with this package?

i made a persistent Live USB from the Ubuntu Maverick option Startup Disk Creator in the live cd distro. It works really good, i've installed the apps and changes i wanted, but now i'd like to lock persistency so no new changes or any data whatsoever may be stored.

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveUSB Persistence Error

Jun 1, 2011

I have a USB with two partitions, one FAT32 with Ubuntu 10.04 on it, and one ext4 partition labelled casper-rw. According to the docs this should do to create a persistence installation, but I still get the "can't find persistence medium" error when booting.

Did I do something wrong or is this a bug?

I installed with unetbootin on the FAT32 partition and created the partitions using GParted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading LiveUSB While Retaining Persistence

Jan 6, 2011

I presently have a Karmc LiveUSB with a casper-rw partition, but am thinking of changing the LiveUSB image to Maverick, while still using the existing casper-rw partition and its data (mostly settings for Ubuntu itself, haven't installed any programmes). Using usb-creator, by the way. Are the config files for Karmic and Maverick significantly different that this will cause any major problems? [Separately, I think this will have implications for my existing Karmic install, because I'm planning to clone my Karmic /home partition to a fresh Maverick install.

Ubuntu :: Persistence In Maverick Flash Install VERY Slow

Jan 15, 2011

I've been butting heads with a problem for about a week now. For a while I've been running a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) off a 4 GB Kingston DataTraveller Flash Drive. Using partimage, I've managed to install this Maverick Ubuntu and load it with Audio Stuff from wineasio and some Windohs audio software, then save the images of the partition usb stick (win32 livecd partition and casper-rw persistence partition).I've also done the same thing with a linuxaudio distro called pure:dyne. I restore and use either according to my needs. Obviously 4GB isn't a lot of over the holidays I went out and bought the 8GB version of the DataTraveller. Two weeks later I'm still trying to get things to work right.

The problem is that when I create the casper-rw partition and boot into Ubuntu things slow to a snail's pace. Ubuntu takes over 5 minutes to boot up. Installing anything with Synaptic or whatever takes 5x as long as with the 4GB version of the flash drive. Everything works rather well....although multitasking is laborious, if possible at all. At first I thought it was the usb-key itself. After returning it (twice) I realised this just wasn't the case. 3 different flash drives had performed exactly the same way. Googling around over the last few days I found I'm not the only one to come across this problem...but still no solution.

What makes things weirder is that today I installed pure:dyne on that same stick and it works perfectly...running as smoothly (almost) as from a normal harddrive. Weirder still is the fact that pure:dyne is built from ubuntu itself...the only difference (as far as the whole usb-creation business goes) is that the persistence file/partition is named "live-rw" instead of "casper-rw".

I'd settle for pure:dyne...except it's built on "lucid" not "maverick"....two of my 3 computers have graphics driver issues with pure:dyne and the soundcard support is spotty (which is strange for a distro specialising in audio production) and wine (and therefore vst/i support) is not nearly as good. If anyone has any clue what goes on here I'd be very interested. In the meantime I'll run pure:dyne on the one computer that likes it.

Slackware :: No FSCK When Booting 13.0 As Live DVD?

Mar 7, 2010

Well, I noticed this by accident while trying to use dash for the rc.d scripts. I messed up and forgot to link it to /bin, and as such, the system failed to boot properly and would not respond. I rebooted (forcefully), but this messed up the filesystem. I booted the sw64 install DVD and tried to mount it, and it would not mount.

I tried to run fsck on it, but it said that fsck.jfs in NOT available. Eventually I booted my old slamd64 12.1 DVD and it had fsck.jfs. Any reason why this rather useful program was removed ? Or is it a bug, or is my DVD messed up? I guess I should just keep around another live CD, I do keep knoppix, but it boots so slow and I don't understand it at all, it's so hard to do anything with it.

Ubuntu :: Persistence Space Worthless And Cripples LiveUSB Drives

Aug 29, 2010

It only takes a few uses of a LiveUSB drive with a persistence file to fully saturate and generate "0 bytes remaining" messages. When this happens, you can no longer use the drive to install Ubuntu until casper-rw is resized or deleted or the USB device is reformatted. I think persistence shouldn't even be an option and that storing files temporarily in RAM is a better solution.
