* add a new parameter "-C" for encrypted persistence file. Eric Hameleers2016-02-151-10/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | Syntax of the new parameter: -C|--cryptpersistfile size|perc Explanation: Use a LUKS-encrypted 'persistence' file instead of a directory or an un-encrypted file (which is created using the "-P" parameter). The filename will be 'persistence.img' just like the unencrypted version. A numerical size in K,M,G or a percentage of available free space is needed as input value with the "-C" parameter.

* Add support for persistence using a loop-mounted container file. Eric Hameleers2016-01-291-37/+82
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This adds an option to store persistent data in a container file instead of a directory in the USB stick's Linux filesystem. Theoretically, this would allow the Slackware Live files to be copied to a VFAT partition on a stick without erasing it, as long as the stick is made bootable and the Live kernel & initrd are added to the boot menu. To create a USB stick from the Live ISO which uses a persistence file instead of a persistence directory, run the '' script with a new parameter: -P|--persistfile Use a 'persistence' container file instead of a directory (for use on FAT filesystem). The following example creates a 750 MB LUKS-encrypted container file 'slhome.img' which will contain /home ; as well as a file '/persistence.img' in the root of the USB's Linux partition which will be used to store the Live OS' persistent data: ./ -i slackware64-live-current.iso -o /dev/sdX -c 750M -P NOTE: The persistence container file will be created as a 'sparse' file which starts as an empty file not using up any disk space, but is allowed to grow dynamically to consume a maximum value of 90% of the free disk space on the Linux partition of the USB stick.
* Add support for a LUKS-encrypted /home in the USB Live version. Eric Hameleers2016-01-221-33/+172
| | | | | | | | | | | | | Using script's new '-c' parameter, you can define the size for a container file in the root of the USB stick's Linux partition. - The container file will be loop-mounted and LUKS-encrypted and the Live OS will mount the filesystem inside the container on /home/. - The LUKS passphrase will be defined when executing the '' script. - The original /home content of the ISO will be copied into the LUKS-encrypted container during execution of the '' script. - If for whatever reason you do not want to unlock & mount the LUKS container during boot, you must add the boot parameter " luksvol= " to the syslinux or grub commandline.
* Add 2016 in the copyright line. Eric Hameleers2016-01-151-1/+1
* Much enhanced iso2usb script. Eric Hameleers2015-12-241-37/+88
| | | | | | | | | Two new parameters '--force' and '--persistence'. Read " --help". Size of the EFI partition was reduced from 200 to 100 MB. The wait-for-root time in the initrd.img file is changed for both BIOS and UEFI boot; this should make boot work out of the box for most computers. More robustness was added in handling race conditions. Only make the USB stick UEFI-bootable if the ISO file is capable of the same.
