It turns out you can easily load this release from an ext hard drive with grub4dos.
I wrote:
grub4dos loads vmlinuz and initrd.img just fine, and then debian is unable to find a medium containing a live filesystem.

I kept renaming the "live" folder for the sake of organization (other variants of debian allow this), which led to the errors. Solved.

Toni; Made a few mods to the scripts, so be sure to scrape the page for them again.

session; Saintless posted a work-around for that. Put /live in a sub dir.

Use: /(Deb-Live_Sq)/live
.

I didn't know how to install firefox this way.

Fixing dependencies is much easier this way.
Just after installing firefox use:
Code:
apt-get -f install

This will do the job.

Cheers, Toni


I think I earlier tried apt-get -f install and it for some reason didn't find the dependencies, but maybe I forgot the -f.

Problem I have had since is that I can't get adobe flash to work, with firefox or with iceweasel (any versions I've tried), even after I put libflashplayer.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Anyone managed to get flash working with this distribution and how?

Have you tried this one?
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/flashplugin-nonfree
According to debian it works with iceweasel:
https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer
I'm sure it can be solved. I will focus on this in a few days.

Hi, Jesudia,

this is the easiest way I know. It works with any type of bootable CD:
Creating bootable USB from Windows:
http://foxyroxylinux.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=110&p=114#p114
Creating bootable USB from linux:
http://foxyroxylinux.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=133
The only problem from linux is to get working Unetbootin.

Cheers, Toni

1 Gb save file in archive uploaded - 1Gb-persistence-or-live-rw.zip
Old file with live-rw removed.
The new extracted file is named persistence and is a save file for Debian Wheezy with persistence.conf file inside.
To use it with squeeze just rename it to live-rw. The config file inside will not make troubles.
First post updated.

Cheers, Toni

Just been having a play with this.
wifi > had to copy b43 firmware from puppy to debain live to get working wifi connection - managed to connect and get online ok.

Any idea what package i need to install to get laptop touchpad / double tap working?

I see there is now a Wheezy version - i should probably move over to testing that version.

I'm not sure how to configure it with the current driver. I guess installing this package will help:

Sorry, Jesuida, I don't have wifi hardware. I asked if someone can give proper instructions to do it here. Since it creates problems I will upload WICD separate sfs file tomorrow. You will only have to download and move it in /live folder and reboot. It should set your wifi automatic on boot. I will write here when it is uploaded.

Save file - download 1Gb-persistence-or-live-rw.zip from here:
http://www.smokey01.com/saintless/
extract it on top of any Fat32 or Ext2,3,4 partition and rename the file persistence to live-rw
Then add the word persistent in your boot menu code. Reboot the computer.
Cheers, Toni

Rather than use my crude method, it might be better to include a something like pns_tool.
It is CLI, but can work quite well.

Well for reference, what I did was copy wpa_supplicant.conf that was already configured (from a running Puppy). It can be found in etc/, but may be in another directory in etc depending on the network tool used.
I have used several variations of scripts, but as they are on another HDD somewhere, I just got one from tempestuous's
thread
and altered it slightly:
Code:
#! /bin/sh
ifconfig wlan0 up
 rm /var/run/wpa_supplicant/*
 wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
 sleep 15
 rm -f /var/lib/dhcpcd/*.info
 rm -f /var/run/*.pid
 dhcpcd -t 30 -h `hostname` -d wlan0


The interface may need changing. On my current laptop it is 'eth1' rather than 'wlan0'.

Oh, and it will throw up an error first time it is run as
Code:
rm /var/run/wpa_supplicant/*
is trying to remove a file that does not exist yet. It can be ignored.

Thank you for this information, Keef,
I will search for debian version of pns_tool ore something similar to include.

Cheers, Toni

pns-tool is just a couple of scripts. 01Micko adapted them from a Porteus tool. It does work for me on L-D-C. Just extract the pet and make a deb out of it. Don't know how to do it myself.
