That answers my questions. Thank you! I have another question about installing VL light for packaging (or installing it for packaging so that I could then make a live cd for packaging from). How much extra packages should I install? None? Default? Some?
Daniel, I take it back. There is some changes I would make to vl-light just before making it into a live cd. I would set up opera so that it automatically, loads a tab for sourceforge, a tab for slackbuild.org, I would set up all wireless configurations so they don't have to be messed with everytime, I would turn off the screensaver and I would update the repositories and enable testing.
I'm saying this in hindsight. I made the live cd and I built gramps using it. Everything worked fine. Exept for 2 things.
1. My live editition would not mount a flash-drive. Tried both HAL and VL-Hot set-ups. I was able to save my build to the virtual harddrive, I have for my regular virtual machine. So my build was not lost.
2. The second problem was for somereason launching the live-cd causes a change in lilo. I have to put in the install cd and run the lilo configuration option inorder to boot into my regular virtual machine again.
Other than that it worked like a charm. It was a time saver even with having to reconfigure lilo, it's still a lot faster than a fresh install, each new build.
