Thats exactly what its for, to make your installed system into persistent livecd/usb!

how "big" is your install?
KDE, etc??
right now im running a full-installed slackware, i was guided by some forum back then.. i think its 3gig+.. im planning on trimming my system so that it would fit better in my usb and i can utilize most of its space..

hmmm.. actually im searching for a minimum installation of slackware with xfce as its DE.. im not really familiar with the packages to install so im searching for packages to install..

do, as root
Code:
slackpkg search xfce
also, install sbopkg, update it and search for xfce

3GB or less makes a 700MB livecd
best to be under 3GB if possible...

when i run slackpkg search xfce it returned me this.

Code:
[ installed ] - aaa_terminfo-5.7-noarch-1
[ installed ] - kdebase-workspace-4.2.4-i486-1
[ installed ] - ncurses-5.7-i486-1
[ installed ] - xfce-4.6.1-i486-5
[ installed ] - xfce4-power-manager-0.6.6-i486-1
why did it returned kdebas-workspace?

i'll try to experiment by installing a minimal slackware with xfce in a virtual box then remaster it so that i would come up with a clean system..

yes you should include those...

make sure you install the xf86-input and xf86-video drivers fo your setup + whatever else

slackpkg search xf86-input
slackpkg search xf86-video

then try startx....

you can use "xconf" script included in kernel-kit pkg
just do as root
xconf

I found the following fonts were the bare minimum for getting X up and running: font-alias, font-bitstream-type1, font-cursor-misc, font-misc-misc. I just add dejafu-fonts-ttf and I'm good to go. I also use the minimum drivers for my system: xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse, xf86-video-intel. I haven't tried stripping X down any further than removing un-necessary fonts and drivers, I'm sure there is a lot more I have installed that I don't need.
