I just made a new USB boot device using the newly released Slax 6.1.1
I downloaded the USB version, extracted it to my USB, ran the /boot/bootinst.sh to make it bootable.
I added the new Slax USB to my USB hub along with keyboard and mouse, and second USB drive containing quotaholics Slacware IceWM.img file. I then connected it to the WebDT.
When booting the Slax USB hit the esc key to get a boot prompt. At the prompt enter
This will get you a text login, where you can enter root for user name an toor for the password.
You now have a fully functional terminal which when running
reads the internal /dev/hda properly. Wahoo.......No more 15min boot of Ubuntu 7.04/7.10
I did try to run startx in the terminal to see what the graphical environment had to offer. I waited nearly twenty minutes but never got a desktop, all the while my Slax USB stick showed activity by flashing light.
Enjoy the 3minute terminal all you dd hounds.
This method will work for transferring in a linux image or backing up any current images on the internal flash. One must manipulate the dd command to reflect source and target. A command that backs up an existing image may may look like this:
Code: Select all
dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/sda1/oem-operating-system.DT366.dd
