Does puppy save on a Flash Drive?


I installed puppy on a flash drive over the LFS distro because I heard puppy has all the packages, and it saves itself when it is on a flash drive, and I can save stuff to it myself. Is that correct? How do I save stuff to the drive? IS there any documentation about puppy 4.1.2 on a flash drive? I think the feature is called "persistance".

Hi -

You're actually asking a bunch of different questions here ... and the answer to all of them is "Yes".

The easiest way to proceed:

1. Download the Puppy Linux .iso and burn it to a bootable CD
2. Start Puppy (Live CD or install to HD: doesn't matter. You'll probably start off with "Live CD")
3. Go into system, Install and select "Universal installer"
4. Puppy Universal Installer guides you through everything you need to do to make a bootable Puppy Linux flash drive (including some/all of a) create a partition, b) format the partition - with your choice of any number of filesystems, including FAT or ext2), c) Copy the Puppy Linux executables/packages, and d) insure your Flash drive's partition is marked "bootable"

It's actually very, very easy!

Good luck .. PSM

Artie's 4.1.1 setup and tips

Sorry for late answer. I'm not quite sure how you have installed Puppy on a memory stick but if you follow the procedure above everything you do with Puppy will be automatically saved on the pen drive at certain intervals and you can decide how often yourself.
