    Default writing changes to BT3 USB intall ?

    Hi guys

    I've searched the forum however haven't been able to locate an answer to my question...

    I have a 2Gig USB stick onto which i have installed BT3 using the boostinst.sh script. However I find that any changes I make are not kept the next time I boot.

    df -h gives :

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    aufs 2.1G 13M 2.0G 1% /
    /dev/sda1 94G 60G 35G 64% /mnt/sda1
    /dev/sdb1 2.0G 980M 968M 51% /mnt/sdb1

    where sda1 is my windoze partition and sdb1 is the USB stick.

    I have a 2nd laptop onto which i've installed BT3 onto the hard drive and this works perfectly.

    Is there any way to install onto a USB so any changes which are made to the OS are saved for next time... I'm thinking in terms of keyboard layouts, scripts, changes to firefox layout and extensions etc...

    Thank you
    A

    This works for me....

    /usr/bin/dir2lzm /mnt/live/memory/changes /mnt/sda1/BT3/modules/changes1.lzm

    The things to remember are
    1. sda1 may change depending on usb devices being used
    2. If you use changes1.lzm and then changes2.lzm, changes3 etc, etc then you can add to your changes. If you keep overwriting changes1 it will only save changes made that time and not keep your previous ones.

    Hope this makes sense. ;-)
