How to install Exton-Slack current on a USB stick and save all system changes on the stick

First of all you have to format a USB-stick of at least 2 GB with the filesystem ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, fat32 or... Suit yourself. I suggest that you use a USB stick of at least 4 GB. That way you can install many new programs.

Then do it like
this - run the following 10 commands:

1. Boot up a Linux system (Ubuntu or...) and start a terminal. Login as root or become root with sudo su
2. Download exton-slack-x32-kde480-1720mb-120222.iso
3. mkdir mnt
4. mount -o loop exton-slack-x32-kde480-1720mb-120222.iso mnt
5. mkdir /mnt/sdc1 (your stick - can obviously have a different name - check it!)
6. mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1
7. cp -av mnt / * /mnt/sdc1
8. umount mnt
9. cd /mnt/sdc1/boot
10. bash

This is how it looks when the latter command bash runs.


And this is how it looks when the USB stick is ready to go.


Note that a folder named slackchanges is created on the USB stick during the installation. So you can see three folders in the root of the stick - boot, slack and slackchanges.

Now you are ready to restart your computer and enjoy Exton-Slack running from USB. Be sure to change your BIOS settings so that the computer primarily boots from the USB stick.

Good luck!
