Re: ?possible to install "live w/ persistence" on an existing partition of a USB flash drive w/o having to erase any dat
The frugal install is very clever. The first time you boot with the "frugal" option, it will do the frugal install to a formatted partition of your choice. After that, the same "frugal" option will cause us to boot into the frugal install you created on the first boot. You need a recent version of l...

I would try using the whole disk for the install, and 'root static' to store user & root data on the USB (if that's incorrect someone will enlighten us. :). That allows more room for remasters. +1. Especially if you are using usb-3. I would suggest that you have another USB, maybe 32GB, formatted w...

I learned a lot from this article: What has to happen with Unix virtual memory when you have no swap space TL;DR: 1) Running out of memory with no swap will bring your system to its knees (or worse). 2) Swap is only used for memory that does not already have a copy on disk. Libraries and executables...
don't know if this will work but i have added this variable to etc/mx-live-usb-maker.conf make_md5sum=no as this is just a test machine I'll see if it does anything when the torrent finishes downloading. I think making a file /etc/live-usb-maker.conf that contains: FORCE=nomd5 should work if you ar...

I have only been here a short time and the community support is fantastic. However, if we had a "NEWBIE" section it would help newbies from getting answers that required and follow up "what does that mean" post. I have been a linux user for 3 years, ms free for over 2 and still get answers that are...

So i guess i will have to do that with the skript from BitJam, since the updater doesn't find my linuxfs in the expected directory. But he mentioned i should do that in the /home directory, if you could just let me know how that will work before i mark this thread as solved finally :) Yes, use it i...
Hmm, I can get something like that here in the Philippines for about the same price as a can of compressed air. It should be good for keyboard maintenance too. Oh yes. It's great for keyboards. Sometimes I will pop off one or two keys to have an easier exit for the debris it blows out. I'll still u...
I used to use lm_sensors combined with fancontrol to control my fans. This was fun and cool. I was able to set fan speeds and temperature levels and even hysteresis. Eventually I gave up and just used the built-in BIOS fan control which has been working fine for years across two systems. I don't ove...
