Description: "The Live team is proud to present the final release of Salix OS Live Xfce 13.37. After some months developing, testing and improving a lot of little details, this version is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants. It will serve as a base for all other editions of Salix Live, namely KDE, LXDE and Fluxbox. This version is build using SaLT (Salix Live Technology), a new system of live tools for Slackware-based distributions, developed in-house, to build live CDs in a more dynamic fashion with very little modifications from the host system. This includes the same applications and packages as the regular Salix OS Xfce 13.37.
Keywords: Slackware-based SaLT

Pros: The same reliable distro with an easier installer and live option
Cons:



Salix live includes the same applications as the regular Salix Xfce, with the addition of gparted (instead of cfdisk), grub2, lilosetup, liveclone, persistence-wizard, and salix-live-installer. The default root password is live.

The disk image can be used both to burn a CD and to create a live usb stick. For the latter, do not use unetbootin (it won't work); just unzip the iso file onto the usb memory (which should have any Windows filing system) and run install-on-USB.sh (or install-on-USB.cmd in Windows).

The live clone tool enables you to create a disk or usb installer, customised if required, from the running system. The process can take over an hour, as it has to create a squashfs, but it works.

The persistance wizard enables data to be stored on a hard drive or usb memory.

To install: run the live system; read the Salix manual; run gparted to set up the HD; run the new graphical installer. Simple!
