Yep I reckon you would. You persisted to the point of having a bootable CD so that demonstrates a good understanding. And a lot of the refinements in banksy resulted from your comments and queries in the first place. Even if you don't know the sizes of the nuts and bolts you've definitely swung the spanner.

I still have some open questions that you asked a couple of years ago - like for example - can a swap partition retain information that is a security risk? My gut feeling is yes but I just haven't proved it yet.

It's on the list for future testing.

Rainy winter days on the way so hopefully more time ahead...

RC8 is uploaded and ready to go
(no need to upgrade - it only adds the new impersonator script you just tried and also a new Grub4Dos which improves frugal install that you don't need because you use CD boots)

Hi Greengeek,

Mucho gracias on this latest version.

Can you post what the md5/sha1/sha256 or sha512 should be or provide a download of it?

Where is that?
I'm unable to find an existing file with the name "b3burnimp".


All the files in /opt/b3user get burnt on to a cd or dvd when you make a new one with the b3personator button on the desktop.
If you want to use the palemoon browser, have pupzip put the files in that directory

I am using Banksy 3 with the Palemoon browser. Every time I start Banksy, I have to link the ,moonchild productions and palemoon directories from /opt/b3user to /root. Is there a way to automate this? I have successfully made a script to link .lastpass to root but have had no success with the other 2

Hi Rick - i will look into this. Can you tell me which pet you use to install Palemoon? Do you know where I can find it for testing? cheers

I just got the bzipped tarball from http://linux.palemoon.org/ and had pupzip unzip it into /opt/b3user directory then I copied the .moonchild productions directory over as well. It gets created when you run Pale Moon.
One issue is that the .moonchild productions directory has a space in its name and I don't know what grammar to use when dealing with such a file

Do you create any menu entries or desktop files, or do you run Palemoon by just clicking the Palemoon file in /opt/b3user ?

Also - can you post the grammar you would use if no spaces existed? That grammar is probably fine except that it may need quotes around part of it. If I see the syntax you have been using we may be able to spot why the symlinks didn't work (I think they should once that issue is sorted...)

Here is the new revised (several times) version of link.sh and it now actually works. Here it is
Code:
ln -s /opt/b3user/.lastpass /root/.lastpass
ln -s /opt/b3user/.moonchild\ productions /root/.moonchild\ productions
ln -s /opt/b3user/palemoon /root/palemoon[


The trick for the space in the filename is a \ followed by a space.
Now I will link the file into /root/Startup and hopefully it will work automatically next time.

Update: the links now load automatically but now I have get page load errors when I try and load any webpage. Typical computing - solve one problem and create another. I will take the links file out of Startup and do it manually - maybe put a link on the desktop. Foiled

I dragged the palemoon executable onto the desktop from /opt/b3user so I have an icon on the desktop. I haven't figured out how to get the pretty icon to stick though. I am going to keep playing with that

That backslash trick is a good find. I struggle to know how to beat spaces in filenames. They can be quite problematic.

Do you have any idea what .lastpass actually does? I have not spotted that file when I have been using Palemoon. When does it get created?

LastPass is a password manager. Its an add-on. You can get it here

Is there a more elegant way of having numlock on by default than the script I am currently using?
