    Default Persistent Changes without additional Partition?

    Hi!

    Is there a possibility to get the persitent changes working, without the need to an additional partitions?

    I have a S10e with Boardcom 4315 :-( and all my 4 primary partitions are allready in use (XP, Boot, Swap, BT4).

    Any idea?

    If you didn't do a real install, why do you have a boot, BT4, and swap partition?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I have my backtrack on one partition with a boot folder, a bt4 folder, a bt3 folder and a persistent folder. in the persistent folder i have a changesbt4 folder and a changesbt3 folder and then in them i put a changes folder.
    for the appends line i have changes=/dev/sdax/persistent/changesbt4/ so bt4 can find the changes and it works well. I would imagine you can put the changes about anywhere as long as you point to where you have it properly.

    Why not just look in the "How to have bt3 and bt4 on the same drive" thread.

    Keule,

    Partition 1 = Primary {Boot}
    Partition 2 = Primary {Windows}
    Partition 3 = Primary {Swap}
    Partition 4 = Extended {Rest of free space}

    Inside Extended:
    Logical 1 = /
    Logical 2 = /usr
    Logical 3 = /var
    Logical 4 = /home
    Logical 5 = /tmp

    Take a look in the forum area Barry suggested, theres a few diffrent solutions to consider that are being added to and worked out.

    Part of the simplistic beauty of using mem sticks is low cost and you can make all the mistakes you want playing around and trying different ways.

    If you have questions there are a lot of good answers on the board
