If you want persistence (the ability to have things saved across reboots), you can't use dd. You'd need to use Eric's (Alien Bob) iso2usb.sh script with the Slackware Live ISO.

See the slackdocs page on it for more info.

If you don't need persistence, you can just dd the Slackware Live ISO to a usb device, but it will be like a fresh install every time you boot up the device.

Hi,

You can get the iso2usb.sh

Or use http://bear.alienbase.nl/cgit/liveslak/tree

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

All 64bit Slackware Live ISOs (those are the ones with "slackware64" in their filename... the others are 32bit) are EFI-bootable. All of the ISOs are hybrid and can be copied to a USB stick using 'dd', making the USB Stick bootable.

you mean running isohybrid , possible with the uefi option, is not a requirement anymore?

All Live ISO files have already been 'treated' with "isohybrid --uefi'. You do not have to repeat that command.
The same is true for all official Slackware ISOs as well as for my "slackware-current install DVD ISO" images which are re-generated after every update of the -current ChangeLog.txt.
