Have you tried USB boot of Slackware Live Edition? slackware-live/ or other versions?

Hello, I am wondering how many people have had success or failure with using to write slackware-live/ to a USB.

If you recall which options you used, please share.

I've used Slackware Live Edition in the recent past (but not to try PLASMA 5 before upgrading my machine to Slackware64 current + PLASMA 5.
I created a USB live Slackware with persistent directory using:

$./ -i /path_to_iso/slackware64-live-plasma5-current.iso -p myhome -o /dev/sdX
Replace /dev/sdX with your own device name for USB.

Subsequently when a new version of the iso file was released, I updated the USB key after I downloaded the new iso with:

$./ -i /path_to_iso/slackware64-live-plasma5-current.iso -r -o /dev/sdX
Never had any issue.

Yes, I tried it with the options you used from your other thread in uefi and legacy mode and it booted without any problems. Do you have secure boot and fast boot disable in the bios?


live boot, slackware, usb, usb drive
