Snapshot and Live USB Maker

#1 Post by Redacted » Mon Aug 13, 2018 2:20 pm

If I burn my snapshot to a flashdrive with Live USB Maker, and choose the writable option, will I still be able to boot and restore my snapshot with it?

You would just install right from the stick, same as an Official Iso release.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Thanks D.O. for the info.
I'm writing this on a live USB session from a snapshot I created this morning.
I had no idea it could be so smooth and fast.

once you learn the ins and outs of the antiX live-USB system, its tough to use anything else.

I often run live w/ persistence, install all my apps and such, then install a fresh system when I'm ready.

In preparation to maybe do the same, I'm checking out your videos about live usb.
Love the Dalek on your MX machine.
