Moolux linux save file


Create moolux save
how to make a 1Gb mooluxsave.

This makes a file filled with zero’s called “mooluxsave” in
/mnt/sdb1/MooLux/save

dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/hdb1/Moolux/save/mooluxsave bs=1k count=1000000

Now we put a filesystem on it with

mkfs.xfs /mnt/sdb1/MooLux/save/mooluxsave

That’s all there is to it! A note regarding mkfs.xfs might be useful. This command has lots of possible arguements to tailor the filesystem but I find the default works best – i.e. without any arguements. Now just add the “changes=” line and everything should work!


can anyone translate this into english for me? I have tried this in a lot of places but I havent messed around with linux in over 10 years so I feel kinda dumb. This is a USB distro I tried installing it on the usb as a hard drive but that just gives me errors when loading and the live system only has up to 512k for save space.

Welcome to LQ maddmike71!

Now, can you give more info?
I checked out moolux, seems ok

what exact problem are you having?
the instructions above create a xfs formatted "save" or "persistent"
"container", like a qemu-img, similar

and you can save settings, apps back to it

so, but, there seems to be a discrepency

it should be one or the other i would think?

Something with the way it mounts the system makes it come out this way. I did finally realize that I forgot the capitol letters in MooLux. The first command works perfectly from the console but the other one i had to run as a command in the start menu.
