Antix Live with persistence


Hello everyone!

I'm using an Antix 19 Live on my USB flash with persistence and it works well. But I have a question -> For example, I have a notebook with windows on it and want to boot from my USB stick. Is there any chance that when I'll remove USB stick with Antix windows will not boot?

Meh, forgot to ask. How does Persistence work? I understand that it stores all changes in RAM, so basically if I'm choosing a 2GiB space for rootfs, does that mean that I have only 2 GB of RAM available(If I have 4 GB only)? Every time I boot from live USB it will immediately using 2GB RAM for rootfs?

Persistence allows for you to reuse files/programs, they get stored on your disk/pendrive & are linked to on booting up again.

But they still will be loaded in RAM every time I boot, right?

There is AntiX documentation on persistence here: https://download.tuxfamily.org/antix...rsistence.html

Based on those docs, persistent Home is stored on disk (not in RAM), whilst persistent Root is read to RAM at startup and written from RAM on shutdown.
