In the Audio CDs section, change the Command to:

parole --device=% cdda://

It's a pity I am not able to do a frugal install as before. When booting the '/boot/modules' directory is not found and there seems to be no way to tell the system where to look for it.

mount your iso image to /tmp/iso

Code: Select all

mkdir -p /tmp/iso
sudo mount -o loop  /path_to_iso_image/salixlive-xfce-14.2-beta2.iso /tmp/iso 
cd /tmp/iso/boot
sudo sh install_on_usb.sh --usb /path_to_iso_image/salixlive-xfce-14.2-beta2.iso /dev/sdb 
Followed your good advice and installed Salix Live Xfce 14.2 beta2 on a stick. Got some problems because some 'syslinux'-files where not found. Finally I installed from your Slackel openbox 607 distribution and then everything was OK. Nice!

So : thank you for providing this "install_on_usb.sh" script.

One question remains. I prefer making modules instead of persistent. Which is the best way to make modules for this Salix Live Xfce 14.2 beta2 distribution?

Thank you,

You need syslinux installed in your system to use install_on_usb.sh. If you run a different distro than slackware, salix, slackel then also you need syslinux installed.

Thank you,
create a directory install all the packages you like in this directory with sudo spkg -i --root=ROOT package_name
and then create an squashfs module from this directory. sudo mksquashfs directory_name module_name.slm -noappend -comp xz -b 1M

You are right.

Thank you for this recipe. I hope I won't forget it!
Thank you very much.
