Live usb installer (instonusb)

Post by djemos » 8. Mar 2019, 00:05

instonusb is a gui tool written in c to install Slackel, Salix 32 and 64 bit live iso's to usb stick.
binaries and source package for slackel can be found on slackel repos or can download it from here
There is no need for building the packages for salix. I tested in salixlive64-xfce-14.2.1 and the 64 bit package run fine. I suppose same will be for 32bit package.
translations are here in transifex having a few strings to translate
It was tested with slackellive-openbox-7.1 and salixlive64-xfce-14.2.1

Yes mimosa it is really useful first for me. The good thing is that i tried to make it work for both slackel and salix live isos 64 and 32 bit editions. Which has be done and has been tested as i mention above with a 32 bit slackellive iso and a 64bit salixlive iso.
I tried to make it work for all distributions iso but in this case it will be complicated because distro's use different approaches in live isos.
So i tried to make a tool specific for slackel, salix live isos and to develop in the future (maybe) another generic tool for all other distro's.

There is no need for building the packages for salix. I tested in salixlive64-xfce-14.2.1 and the 64 bit package run fine. I suppose same will be for 32bit package.

Will do Polish translation if you accept the request, since there isn't that language there right now.

live-usb-installer has been updated. After installing to usb can create a persistent file. Some strings need translation.

finished
by the way I think you've got a mistake in one of the english translation strings - it says "persistent" twice so I didn't translate that
