Which shows how naive I am as a person. In my book a preview does save
or else it is not a preview of the real product. I mean it doesn't give a real
"show" of the final product if it doesn't save in frugal install. But that is cause
me had no idea that frugal install was so utterly unuque and alien to most X-ers. .
And it would be more fair to the tester to know that when one did the download?
Are you sure that the "Light" does save in frugal install. Have you tested?
What is the menu.lst cheat code I should use to accomplish both access
to the HDD and to be able to save to the HDD?
I don't mind that a preview is restricted in many ways. But the better way is to show
in a column way that this is what the preview can accomplish and this many features
does the real product have. So one knows this before one download and burn it to test.
Reading this post again I get a hunch where the problem might be.
I am the VL livecd developer.
I have done a "frugal" install of VL and saved changes with the "cheatcode" I gave you previously.
The major difference between what you are trying to do and what I have done is the filesystem. I used ext2 because I knew the kernel has R/W capability for that filesystem. It will require someone installing XP on a ntfs filesystem to try and help you further. I may have time to do this later next week.
As it is set up now it save to ext2 but it can write to ntfs too but it isn't activated
so most likely one only need to do that in a way that makes it possible. Either in
the cheatcode or through some konsole activating. I just guess. I don't read his answer
as if he has promised me to do it but he doesn't say he is definitively against it either.
And as I wrote to him. I am in no hurry. I can wait cause Vector SOHO is the best of all
distros I have tested so far.
