What problema did you have with puppy? Helps to know to recommend you a new one
@wuwei No no, don't misunderstand me. I just searching for another one. Puppy Linux is great.
I got a problem with GCC. I installed GCC, but it didn't recognized as a command in Terminal.
I really appreciate your toot. Thank you. ❤
Well then Knoppix or MX are also some options
@wuwei Thanks a lot. ❤
@Tayo I'll try. Thank you. ❤
@optimuspnj Most Linux distros can be installed on a 16GB flash drive and be usable. What specifically are you looking for?
@matt I tried Ubuntu 19.10 with Persistent support. I liked it, but it caused some problems. Such as not detecting screen brightness, Not opening Chromium after installation etc.
Thank you so much for the reply. ❤ Can you suggest a distro? A Debian based one?
@optimuspnj well, you could always try Debian proper.
@optimuspnj A Debian install can't do that ?
@Apitronics It will do, But I don't know how to install Debian with persistent support. Is it possible?
Thank you for your reply. ❤
@Apitronics Thank you so much! ❤
@optimuspnj I have an arch install like this, not much needs changing beyond setting journalctl not to persist logs to disk, and using `libeatmydata`.
@adasauce Thank you, I will do some research.
@optimuspnj As other stated, it's hard to recommend something. Honestly I figured puppy would be awesome for this, as it's lightweight and I'm assuming install it to a flash drive. There is Tiny Core also, but not sure how portable that would be.
@jordan31 Thank you for the reply. ❤ I'll stick with Puppy then.
@optimuspnj you can take a look at my mkdebusb script which allows you to create an usb flash drive with persistance from a Debian live media. https://notabug.org/LiohMoeller/mkdebusb - It requires a Debian hosts system of the same version. Use it with the --install-dependencies parameter on the first run and then read the help with -h. It allows also restore of existing persistance to port it to another device. If you want to change the keyboard layout / locale, you have to do it in the script for now.
@optimuspnj and depending on your usb flash drive type, don't exect too much from anything. I recommend something like this, but I guess it's not what you have for the moment. Just give it a try. Maybe not with the GNOME ISOs. If you need Firmware, choose from here: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/10.1.0-live+nonfree/amd64/iso-hybrid/
@lioh Thank you again!
@optimuspnj if you face any issues, just let me know.
@lioh Thank you so much. ❤
@clacke Thank you so much. ❤
Why persistent? In my experience, persistent mode is slow. You can install any GNU/Linux distro to flash drive if you want. I recommend EXT2 filesystem for that. Just select bootloader to be installed in that drive and run the OS everywhere.
@ademalsasa I'm looking for persistent distro because...
My laptop was died two days ago, I was using an eight year old laptop. You know how it feels like when IT guy lost his machine. 😌
My cousin has a laptop but he is using Windows which I hate the most. Somehow, I have to do my studies and stuff. I was unable to buy a laptop so sooner, because I'm a student... So... I'm ended up like this.
Anyway thank you so much for the reply sir! ❤
@optimuspnj I wish you to have new laptop. Ah for mentioned problem, it's still better to install the OS to flash drive rather than persistence, as you can do it with a Windows laptop. Good luck.
@ademalsasa Thank you so much. ❤
@optimuspnj you're very welcome!
@optimuspnj I've used parrot with persistence before
@fubar Thank you!
@optimuspnj why not puppy?
@ajroach42 I had a problem with GCC on Puppy. 😐
@twee I didn't find a settings app in Slax. Is it normal?
I use Debian 10 persistent live on a daily basis for work, since I'm forced to use Win10 on that machine but I prefer to know what my computer is doing. Works great, just few minor issues, easily solvable.
I tried Puppy and it works great, also flashed into some USB for friends as a gift.
Xubuntu is quite OK but on some machines is not so snappy and gets very slow, same for Lubuntu.
@artrotrogus Thank you!
@optimuspnj I used Ubuntu 16.04 on a usb flash drive once, it worked pretty well. I would recommend Ubuntu MATE 16.04 though.
