I have remastered the lupulibre-528.005-1.iso and burned it to CD. It runs nicely but it doesn't ask for the creation of a lupsave file at shutdown.
how can I make the system to ask for savefile creation at the end of the session?

thanks in advance

1. Mount the partition that you want for your savefile. I will assume it will be your /dev/sda2 and it is mounted as /mnt/sda2; change all references in the next few steps to your chosen partition mount point.
2. Open terminal.
3. Type this in terminal, changing /mnt/sda2 to your correct mount point, and changing 1000 to the size of the savefile you want to create (in megabytes).
Code:
cd /mnt/sda2
dd if=/dev/zero of=./lupusave.3fs count=0 bs=1M seek=1000
mkfs.ext3 -F ./lupusave.3fs

4. Reboot.

PS: backup your data first in case you make a typo. "dd" and "mkfs" commands are especially dangerous if you type them wrongly.

Good luck.
