I have a 2gb USB flash memory stick which will take all of the Slackware files so the link informs me.
Can Slackware be made into an actual desktop Operating System? If so, what types and, if poss, the names of download packages that would best suit the job?
Many thanks and Cheers?
If you REALLY just have to have Linux USB bootable flash drive. Here is the ABSOLUTE most easy way.
Download Mepis 6.5 -----7.0--- will not workhttp://ftp.uwsg.indiana.edu/linux/me..._6.5.02_32.iso
Burn it to a cd.
Login as user:= root password:= root
Click the KDE menu and select
Mepis system assistant
On the second tab it says Mepis USB Key.
Insert your flash drive and click CANCEL when the window pops up asking to open it.
select your unmounted usb key from the drop down and click format and apply.
2 or 3 min later you will have a bootable linux OS on your flash drive.
Not to mention you will find Mepis to be a VERY VERY nice distro.
One more thing.
If your flash drive is a U3 you may have to remove the U3 software via the Mfg tool on their website.
U3 can keep a bootable flash drive from working correctly.
