Gonna share with everyone how I have finally learned how to make a bootable
persistent livecd/usb from your installed-to-hard-drive 13 or current system.
Its not very hard and is very useful for making a Rescue cd, or maybe even a kiosk-like usb-browser.
1) A installed Slackware 13 (prefer current) system
2) Quax's 188.8.131.52 aufs,squashfs,lzma patched kernel with gobs
of extra drivers
3) Linux Live Scripts 6.3.0
1) Install a minimal or full Slackware current system to a hard drive partition
with at least 4-5GB of space.
( Install can be no more than 2.6-2.7GB for a ~700MB CD; anything bigger
will be a DVD size!)
2) Grab Quax's kernel source and compile it as you wish
I just changed 486 to 686 and you can make both aufs and squashfs as built-in to kernel (*) or as modules (M).
See link above at slax forum for more info
If using aufs/squashfs as built-in, you must edit LinuxLiveScripts as at slax link above.
After compiling kernel, install it and boot off of new kernel.
3) Grab LinuxLiveScripts 6.3.0 and untar it into /tmp
edit .config and build if need be, also edit linux-live-6.3.0/initrd/initrd_create
if you made aufs/squashfs as built-in!(see slax link above for kernel)
4) empty /var/cache/sbopkg, /var/cache/slackpkg, /var/slapt-get, /var/log/removed_pkgs, /var/log/removed_scripts, /var/log/sbopkg, and /var/lib/slackpkg
as these files are unnecessary.
also delete or mksquashfs /usr/doc folder.
5) after cleaning system, configure everything as you want, bookmarks,etc
6) goto /tmp and run the build script in /tmp/linux-live-6.3.0.
Takes about 3 hrs for a 2.7GB install
Read all about slax's boot cheatcodes as most apply
Any questions or if I left something out please post
I figured this would be a continuing thread!
