If you're trying to make a live-USB, similar to a live-CD, the system will always boot into read-only. There are ways around that using a second partition for persistence. If that's what you want, you should take a look at the debian-live documentation. You could build your own live system using live-build, and create either an iso image or a usb-hdd image.
http://live.debian.net/

Another option is to use Refracta Snapshot. You could install the deb files in your virtualbox installation and create a bootable iso that's a copy of your system, with all your customizations and settings. And you could use refracta2usb to put that iso onto a bootable usb thumb drive. You'll probably need to install some dependencies, like squashfs-tools, live-boot, live-config, live-config-sysvinit, and live-boot-initramfs-tools. See comments in the config file (/etc/refractasnapshot.conf) for using a custom iso directory. (You probably want the boot menu to say "Debian" instead of "Refracta".)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/refracta/files/tools/

If you don't want a live-media system, you could just install debian to the usb stick the way you'd install to a hard drive. Then it will boot read/write. Since the system isn't compressed into a squashfs, it'll take up more space on the stick.

That's a 5 year old post.

I'm not sure why you posted it here?

Obviously, Saintless and Fred have come up with several different (much better??) ways than the ways suggested in that 5 year old post than using a persistence partition or Refracta (whatever that is).

Who are you replying to and what are you trying to say??????

also, delete (square brackets deleted by me) from your message

Code:

It is messing up the spacing.

Some post just anything hereabouts in Puppy Projects ... and leave it for John Murga to decide whether it should be pulled or not (personally I suspect he has far better things to be doing). Some of us find non "Puppy Projects" posts to be annoying - most boards disallow such off topic posts, but as that's widely abused here might as well jump in and .... this might be of interest to some ...

Oh, so you are intentionally being a jerk. Got it. Carry on.

Can you at least delete the link to the image file that is messing up the margins?

Hi All, some news and updates:

- New kernel package version available from Debian repo: 4.9.88-1+deb9u1 (linux-image-4.9.0-6), upgrading can be done on a frugal install by running "upgrade-kernel"
The mklive-stretch script doesn't need to be updated for that because the kernel version number is still 4.9.0-6.

- New peasywifi package (v4.6-1), rcrsn51 changed the button "Connect" (at the dialog that appears after "Scan") to "OTC".
This means "One time connect" (wpa2 only) to be able to connect without having to make a Profile first.
(it will probably avoid some confusion there was earlier)

- New package I made for display of detailed system information: "inxi-gui", taken from antiX, original by Misko_2083, modified a little for StretchDog, Stretch-live. (see screenshot)
Install inxi-gui with synapic or apt-get (first update the packages lists; apt-get update)
After install, run from Menu > System > System Info (inxi-gui).
The "inxi" commandline script is included in /usr/local/bin, which is a perl script, so the package has perl as dependency.

EDIT: Also updated in repos the "hplip-print-scan" packages (32 and 64 bit) to version 3.18.3, thanks again rcrsn51 !

Hi Fred - simple question (I hope!? Laughing ) -

Running my (nearly perfect!) modified/remastered Xfce StretchDog, Porteus boot w/changes.dat -

I'd really like to change the shutdown script to;

1) Default shutdown without saving (with no further user input), and...

2) Shorten the timeout to something closer to 6-8 seconds.

Possible? Can you (or anybody else) point me to the script where I could play around with modifying these settings?

The idea is to shutdown from the menu, quickly, and just walk away... ending up with a "pristine", bug-free boot next time around.
Running a small savefile just for minor changes only (themes, wallpaper, etc.).

Is this doable without too much trouble?

Thanks!

Bob

Hi Bob,

Yes, it's doable rather easy, edit /usr/bin/wmreboot and /usr/bin/wmpoweroff, replace lines 23-41 with this (default is NoSave and timeout is 6 seconds):
Code:
    yad --title="Save changes" --center --text="   Do you want to save your changes?\n   If so, click the 'Save' button within 6 seconds   " \
    --window-icon="preferences-system" --timeout=6 --timeout-indicator bottom --buttons-layout=spread  --button="Save:2" --button="NoSave:0" --button="Cancel:1"
    ret=$?

case $ret in
1|252)
exit
;;
0|70)
touch /mnt/live/tmp/changesx
gtkdialog-splash -timeout 4 -bg "dark red" -fg yellow -text "Session not saved" -close never
;;
2)
touch /mnt/live/tmp/changesx
alsactl store 0
touch /mnt/live/tmp/sessionsaved
save2flash
;;
esac


Change --timeout=6 to whatever you like.
Don't forget to save the session after this edit Wink

Good luck,

EDIT: BTW, it's sometime ago that I made a build choosing this minimal XFCE (I think you are using), so out of curiosity I did again and I'm very pleased with it, it's very fast and... hey!! it's full XFCE4 ! ISO size only 244MB Very Happy
I'd recommended it ! "Super Duper" as @sneekylinux probably would say Smile

Fred

I've been running Slitaz frequently these days and I like the rounded corners of the gtk2 windows.
The openbox included in Slitaz is patched, I guess, found patched openbox packages that work on Stretch, Xenial, Bionic, here:

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?pid=46678#p46678

Hosted these also here now (32 and 64 bit):
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/openbox_3.6.1-4.3_i386.deb
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/openbox_3.6.1-4.3_amd64.deb

Install by right-click > Install deb, or from terminal e.g.:
Code:
dpkg -i openbox_3.6.1-4.3_i386.deb


Edit ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml, around line 55 ,for example just under "<keepBorder>yes</keepBorder>"
So becomes:
Code:
    <keepBorder>yes</keepBorder>
    <cornerRadius>4</cornerRadius>
    <cornerRadius menu="yes">4</cornerRadius>


Restart X and you should have rounded corners
It's not perfect though, depends on which openbox theme used also, some may find it ugly.

The value for <cornerRadius> 4 above can be anything, e.g. 8, but it may not look very well.

Wow !! Looks great Bob !

You've been creative in adding/modyfing stuff, is this done initially with the XFCE option from mklive-stretch ? Hard to recognize.

Any chance that you'd share your creation ? Would be a nice addition to the Dog kennels Smile

Fred

I will try that.
In my search for a very light and simple web server (to avoid always using xampp) I ended up with
Hiawatha. It is very light.
If anyone is interested I have made a squashfs file for it.
Link is here :
hiawatha_10.6_amd64.deb_webserver_v02.squashfs (64bit): https://1fichier.com/?9u4o4w2xo9
hiawatha_10.8.3_i386.deb_webserver_v03.squashfs (NEW 32bit) : https://1fichier.com/?iazevg3ls3cqdl2mtcxh

The modifications I made are that the web folder is in /opt/lampp/htdocs ( this is the default xampp web folder)


An alternative full webserver option is xampp (which I use in all my OSes cause it's portable)
xampp link : xampp-linux-x64-7.1.7-0_170730a_ok.squashfs https://1fichier.com/?mzhw5ccyg7

Sorry if it's a silly question, It's possible to build a 64 bit version with the script?

Time ago i did it for the 32bit version, and I've been using it as my main system since then, the machine it's 64bit capable, so wanted to try the 64b to see how it goes.

Thanks.

Saludos.

Yes, but only if you run the script from a 64-bit OS, then it will automatically build a 64 bit version.
Preferably from a Debian or Ubuntu based OS, but it's tested to work also from Puppy or Fatdog.
Running it from e.g. the "Debian-Stretch-Live Starter Kit" 64-bit from rcrsn51 will guarantee that it works.
