* Updated liveslak documentation for the upcoming 1.3.7 release Eric Hameleers2020-10-051-10/+27
* Expand the capabilities of the 'toram' boot parameter Eric Hameleers2020-09-051-0/+5
| | | | | | | | toram=all Prevent writes to disk since we are supposed to run from RAM; equivalent to parameter "toram". toram=os Load OS modules into RAM, but write persistent data to USB.
* Allow a custom domain name for the live host Eric Hameleers2020-09-051-0/+3
| | | | | New boot parameter: "domain=your_custom_domain", The domain component defaults to ''.
* README.txt - some small corrections Eric Hameleers2020-06-251-2/+5
* README.txt small updates Eric Hameleers2020-05-131-2/+9
* README.txt updated Eric Hameleers2018-09-041-5/+9
* Add support for on-disk OS configuration file Eric Hameleers2018-06-151-0/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The configuration file must be in the liveslak main directory ('/liveslak' by default) and be called 'DISTRO_os.cfg' where DISTRO is the lower-case name of the distro ('slackware' by default). The following variables can be defined in the configuration file, one per line, in the format VAR=value: BLACKLIST, INIT, KEYMAP, LIVE_HOSTNAME, LOAD, LOCALE, LUKSVOL, NOLOAD, RUNLEVEL, TWEAKS, TZ, XKB. Since the configuration file is sourced by the live init script, it is OK to have comments in it that are prefixed with '#'.
* README.txt needed an update Eric Hameleers2018-03-091-14/+27
| | | | | | | - Explanation of the partition layout of a USB stick when created with - Updated URLS - Many small fixes, mostly typos
* README: small updates and polishing to align with the Wiki text Eric Hameleers2017-12-231-5/+5
* README.txt: mention dlackware and studioware in the 'ISO variants' section Eric Hameleers2017-09-231-3/+5
* liveslak: update the README with new upslak functionality Eric Hameleers2017-09-191-3/+94
* Allow syntax 'livemedia=scandev:/path/to/live.iso' Eric Hameleers2017-07-191-0/+3
| | | | | | | Use the 'scandev' keyword instead of specifying an actual partition name if you want liveslak to scan all partitions for the ISO. Use this if you are not sure of the devicename and have no means of figuring it out.
* Document the 'debug=<number>' boot parameter Eric Hameleers2017-07-181-0/+3
| | | | | '2' enables verbose script execution; '4' dumps you into a debug shell right before the switch_root.
* Add boot-time tweak 'nsh' to disable new sub-pixel hinting in freetype Eric Hameleers2017-04-301-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | Freetype has enabled a 'new style' of sub-pixel hinting, based on the Infinality patch but simplified for speed. Some people feel that this new type of hinting is resulting in worse font rendering than with the old auto-hinter built into Freetype. The new tweak 'nsh' effectively disables the new type of sub-pixel hinting and makes Freetype fall back to the old behaviour. Usage: add "tweaks=nsh" to the boot commandline of the Live OS.
* README: put some more emphasis in the ISO developer section. Eric Hameleers2017-02-021-1/+1
| | | | | | | Specifically, stress the fact that generating an ISO requires that you create a local Slackware mirror prior to running '', since the script will not download official Slackware packages, only 3rd party packages.
* README.txt: fix the URL of the Porteus web site. Eric Hameleers2016-12-081-1/+1
* README.txt: mention harddisk installation option in the Preface. Eric Hameleers2016-11-291-1/+1
* Make the name 'min' of the minimal package list customizable. Eric Hameleers2016-11-091-0/+5
| | | | | | | | The 'min' package list contains the generic kernel. This package list is special because the '' script will also take care of the ISO boot configuration while processing it. A custom Live OS may want to use a custom filename instead of "min.lst", so the variable $MINLIST was created for that purpose.
* README.txt has been updated. Eric Hameleers2016-07-311-0/+17
* README: move the syslinux/grub information to the beginning and add a header. Eric Hameleers2016-07-081-32/+35
| | | | | | This allows people to find the instructions on how to edit the boot commandline in syslinux or grub more easily. Now it is here:
* README.txt: document the new options in liveslak. Eric Hameleers2016-06-171-0/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | * added '-r' parameter to refresh an existing USB Live stick with data from a new Live ISO. * boot: added 'nop=wipe' parameter which will cause all persistent data (in the persistence directory or a persistent data container) to be erased. This allows you to repair a case of corrupted persistent data which can occur after you modified files that are part of a squashfs module. Note that this boot option will leave an encrypted /home un-touched!
* Some cosmetic cleanups. Eric Hameleers2016-05-291-1/+1
* add "-X" switch to generate the ISO with xorriso. Eric Hameleers2016-05-291-0/+1
| | | | | | For some people, an ISO generated with xorriso instead of using mkisofs/isohybrid is more compatible with other tools or hardware. You need to install xorriso separately, it is not included with Slackware.
* README.txt: the git repository is no longer hosted on taper but on bear. Eric Hameleers2016-05-181-2/+2
* README.txt: small fixes to sync this document with the Wiki version. Eric Hameleers2016-05-181-5/+7

| | | | Allows the user to start the SSH server, now that it is disabled by default.
* README.txt: added 'tweaks' boot parameter and deprecated 'nga' boot parameter. Eric Hameleers2016-05-131-2/+4

| | | | Provided by GigglesUK, thanks.
* README.txt: fixes and updates. Eric Hameleers2016-05-061-12/+19

* README.txt: update the documentation for the new PXE server functionality. Eric Hameleers2016-05-051-0/+52
* liveinit: make the DHCP wait time configurable and set a longer default. Eric Hameleers2016-04-221-1/+4
| | | | | | | New boot parameter: dhcpwait=<numseconds> Maximum wait time for the DHCP client to configure a network interface (new default: 20 seconds, was 10 seconds).
* README.txt updated for the network boot (NFS root) functionality. Eric Hameleers2016-04-131-0/+41
* Changed layout of README.txt slightly for better match with Wiki version. Eric Hameleers2016-03-231-138/+201
| | | | | | When changes need to be made to README.txt and its Wiki version at I want to be able to diff the two easily.
