this how to?
I'm using the "How to" setup a usb stick to save changes.I downloaded BT3 for usb and burnt CD. I formatted my 4GB usb stick with fdisk using the +1024M command for sda1 partition size.Everything looks OK .When I run the command;
"cp -r /mnt/live/mnt/hdb/* /mnt/sda1"
I recieive a litany of complaints such as:
cp cannot create directory ........invalid arguement
cp cannot open permission denied
cp cannot create symbolic link...........operation not permitted
cp cannot create special file..............operation not permitted
cp cannot create directory...............no space left on device
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'm using the Howto posted by Ktzqbp on 12-04-2008 "how to-setup a usb stick to save changes"
If so I do not believe that this is the official wiki.
Try the tutorial barry posted other wise here is the official wiki
Or the older one
to save in backtrack its quite easy just type
dir2lzm /mnt/live/memory/changes changes.lzm and then move teh changes.lzm to the module folder in the usb stick at the bt4 folder
but remember this saves only the current session after the save if you do other changes tou must make the same procedure with changes2.lzm
if you reboot then do changes and save again and delete the first file the saves will undo.
it actually saves teh memory in a file and load them at the boot
I wil post in newbies, because i'm not that freak but i'm learning ...
I did the howto on making the persistant usb drive.
And that worked out i hope. i'm running on it.
What means persistant here.
if i configure the languages on BT4B and reboot, the US keyb index returns.
Even if i have set it to BE.
Is it also like that that when i fix some bugs ( for example: ettercap-gtk not starting in gui) That this is non persistant ?
Or did i do something wrong ?
