    Default setup bt3 on usb persistant

    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

    any advice?

    Are you using this how to?
    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

    That tutorial comes from here correct?
    http://backtrack.wikidot.com/main-page
    If so I do not believe that this is the official wiki.
    Try the tutorial barry posted other wise here is the official wiki
    https://wiki.remote-exploit.org/backtrack/
    Or the older one
    http://backtrack.offensive-security.....php/Main_Page

    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

    Default persistant ?

    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 ?
