    Exclamation Persistent Changes Solution

    if you want to use persistent changes mode .....


    you can'T DO IT ON A FAT 32 ONE YOU MUST WIPE YOUR USB & FORMAT IT EXT2, EXTRACT YOUR ISO .....

    CD ONTO THE BOOT DIR / usb

    BOOTINST.SH WILL NOT WORK WITH EXT2 BUT ONLY WITH FAT32

    YOU MUST USE BOOTLILO.SH

    RUN IT

    THIS ONE CAN INSTALL ON ALL TYPE OF PARTITIONS AND CREATE A FOLDER CALLED SLAXCHANGES UNDER YOUR /BOOT DIRECTORY

    DON'T TOUCH THIS FOLDER EVEN IF EMPTY

    REBOOT ON YOUR NEW INSTALL

    SELECT SAVE CHANGES MODE AND YOU're DONE
    ##########################################"

    OR HERE IS THE METHOD I USED (RECOMENDED) THIS ONE IS BETTER BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT ON FAT32 SO NO NEED TO WIPE THE DRIVE & REINSTALL ..........

    BOOT YOUR USB

    CD /mnt/XXXXXXX (THE USB WHERE IS THE BOOT DIR)

    CD ./boot/syslinux

    chmod +Xx lilo

    chmod +Xx syslinux


    OPEN syslinux.cfg

    SELECT THE MODE YOU WANT TO ADD CHANGES & all options you want like rename modes , remove unused modes

    EDIT APPEND LINE

    ADD changes=/dev/XXX (AN EXT2 PRIMARY PARTITION SOMEWHERE IE ON A HD)

    SAVE SYSLINUX.CFG

    syslinux -s -f /dev/xxx1 (the partition where you extract iso and run bootlilo.sh)

    reboot /select the mode where you added the changes mod

    THAT's ALL !!!! 100 % PROOF OF CONCEPT !!!

    ENJOY !!!

    you can also save changes on the USB itself in FAT32, using a loop file (available on slax mirror). I was looking at a solution of using a loop-aes file just like in Knoppix, where the changes are changed on an encrypted file.

    yep remember that ...

    nifty future ... when you say encrypted it's aes 256 ?

    maybe the crypting process in real time will be too much ressource consuming...........

    Ok, tried creating a ext2 partition on my 2gb stick, and put the same mods in place, but i'm still getting the same error.

    read through all the BT2 save changes threads, still think i'm doing it right..

    I'm gonna try formatting with ext2 now the trying to use the bootlilo.sh and see what that does for me.

    Tried all of the above and still no joy :-/
