Quick small persistent linux iso for USB?


I've made persistent USB keys in the past,. im wondering if there is a distro pre-made for such a thing.

Ie: Burn the ISO to a USB, and its ready to rock with persistent settings/updates etc..

check out the latest iso of MX-14. It comes with many liveUSB features, including automatic persistence file creation.

Thanks for the pointers. Thats what i was looking for.

Additionally there is slax: http://www.slax.org/

But fedora seems to be the safer bet when it comes to working on various hardware. Slax immediately ignored my wlan, as did mepis. I assume this has to do with the non-free drivers it takes to do so. I do not consider that a bad thing, but in this case, i need something that will work on many systems so Fedora is the way to go.

Thanks!

fyi mx is not mepis. its actually antix under the hood. the non-free drivers should be included. there was a problem with broadcom, but there should be a fix out by july 1.

Upon reading the page more closely, i see that MX-14 is debian stable.

Ok. This is a broadcom something or other card. I don't mind trying again in a bit. Fedora will suit me fine until then.

Relying on the excellent upstream work by Linux, MX-14 deploys Xfce4 as Desktop Environment on top of a Debian Stable base. It also incorporates the independent and innovative development products Whisker Menu, smxi and inxi.

Thanks for reporting back it was a broadcom. There was a problem with the last iso in that the wl driver wasn't compiled correctly, so it isn't there to load. I've seen a test version of the next bugfix iso and that problem is now fixed. reinstalling the broadcom-sta-dkms package fixes the issue.
