Welcome to this forum, Marlon701.

Quoting the excellent document from Eric Hameleers, under Using the Customization Feature of the Live OS
Quote:
you can define a function “custom_config()” where you can add all your custom post-installation steps that are not covered in the “make_slackware_live.sh” script itself
However, it is probably easier and more flexible to transfer the ISO content to an USB stick and set a 'persistence' file or directory that will record the changes you make, not to loose them across reboots: see under Transfering ISO content to USB stick. This can't be done using an optical media like a CD or DVD because an ISO 9660 file system is read-only by design.

Well, in that case you will need to write a custom_config() function then build an ISO that you will distribute.

Alms, I never heard before about wifislack. I am downloading the current ISO, just out of curiosity and will have a look at the live scripts in www.downloadwireless.net.

However a quick look at the Basic Guide and the forum gave me no clue on how include customized settings in the ISO with wifislack. Maybe that's because I don't read Spanish so well (although Google Translate helped me). Could you provide a link to a document explaining how it can be done?

I installed wifislack64 in a VM, that led me to discover the QTGZMnager package manager I had never heard of, although it be available on slackbuilds.org. I see a lot of overlay modules (wifislax64.txt is an output of "df -h"). I will have a look at the initramfs later.

I understand that this satisfies my curiosity but doesn't answer you help request, sorry.
