If from= and changes= worked I probably wouldn't be here asking dumb questions. I do see an edit stating that persistence is auto enabled; is there a cheat to disable changes when you want to boot without, for example when it is causing a kernel panic?

TIA for any help.
Salix is not slax. Slax seems to be dead, whereas Salix is very much alive. So cheatcodes are different.

Look at the salixlive/modules directory of the iso to find the modules.
Howto : see in this forum http://www.salixos.org/forum/viewtopic. ... 9&start=20

Don't know much about "changes=" . Do not use it. Might try one day.

As root:

Code: Select all

# mkdir loop tmp
# unxz initrd.xz
# mount -o loop initrd loop
# cd tmp
# tar xf ../loop/lib.tar.xz
# patch -p0 -i salt-ext4.patch
# tar caf ../loop/lib.tar.xz .
# cd ..
# umount loop
# rm -rf tmp && rmdir loop
# xz -C crc32 initrd
salt-ext4.patch
Followed scrupuleusement your instructions. Think there is a small error in your patchfile. Guess that line 316 of 'lib/SaLT' should be 'fi' to close what you have added. Kindly have a look and confirm.

Once more : thank you very much. Without your help ...

Regards,
JRD,

Could you please upload that "salt-ext4.patch" again. It is no longer there.

Think I need it for the latest Slackel Live.

Merci beaucoup!

Regards,

Kindly have a look at the following post : http://www.salixos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4033.

It appears that for some people this patch is a bug. I can't live without it! It would be nice if people with more knowledge than I would have a look.

For me the problem is solved now.

Waiting for th new Saliix LiveCd ...
