Installation of Kodachi 3.3

I recently tested the Kodachi 3.3 distro in a live USB environment. I was impressed and would like to permanently install the system on my laptop SSD. However, there is no Install option anywhere in the menus. The developers state that for security reasons it is best not to permanently install it, yet they also state that it CAN be installed. If anyone has knowledge of how to do this installation, I would greatly appreciate any information to help me with the installation.
Thank you,
Richard Mockler

Im doing what your asking about. Right now
Im using dd command to copy from usb to hd
Ex. dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sda

The sda is my hd and the sdb is my usb
Check either fdisk -l or gparted to find out how your drives are assigned

Good luck
P.s. im doing it from kodachi

Hi. Another way to use 'dd' or 'tar'.
Create a partition and filesystem on your HD.
Then use dd or tar like this:
dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/mnt/hda5/OS-Kodachi.dd
mkdir /mnt/OS-Kodachi-tmp ; mkdir /mnt/OS-Kodachi
mount -o loop /mnt/hda5/OS-Kodachi.dd /mnt/OS-Kodachi-tmp
cp -vR /mnt/OS-Kodachi-dir /mnt/OS-Kodachi
and then, change all configure files (like /etc/fstab, /etc/mtab, /etc/lilo, /etc/grub) with new partitions and mount points.

Or you can use tar (better way, because it preserve permissions and users/group):
tar -cv /mnt/sda1 > /mnt/hda5/OS-Kodachi.tar
then create partitions, filesystems, mount them, and create directories and change to mount point of new partition (for example, mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/OS-Kodachi):

cd /mnt/OS-Kodachi
tar -xvf /mnt/hda5/OS-Kodachi.tar

Now you have all files with there permissions and users/group.
And now you can modified configs files.

Have a nice day
