If You Were Going To Make A Live Slackware Rescue DVD/USB What Programs Would You Have On It?


I know about fsarchiver, testdisk, etc what else is there?

Thanks

I mean programs from SlackBuilds sorry for not being clear.
I know slackware has dd, and alot of other stuff in default slackware you know
So I figure you'd need it to have option to boot just like a install iso with huge.s kernel etc plus a live booting option to 3 or runlevel4 gui plus lots of utilities you know

The Slackware iso makes a pretty good rescue suite. fdisk, gdisk, and cfdisk to examine drives, lsblk and blkid, cryptsetup, dosfsutils... there are more on there, but those few I use routinely. It's really well stocked IMO.

I like having some networking tools too - like wpa_supplicant.
