Subject description: For MintPup DebianDog
 

http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/multisystem

Comprehensive instructions to install MultiSystem are taken from a french Ubuntu forum (i didn't find such comprehensive instructions in english).

To start with, MultiSystem helps you try multiple Linux distros, even Windows, on a single USB flash drive. It is what makes it apart from other similar apps.

I did install it on MintPup, but it didn't work out- of- the -box. I had to do some configuration.

Here is what i did :

Download this:

http://liveusb.info/multisystem/install-depot-multisystem.sh.tar.bz2

In a terminal:

./install-depot-multisystem.sh
A downloading process will start with this command line, installing dependencies.

OR :

In a terminal:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://liveusb.info/multisystem/depot all main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/multisystem.list'
wget -q http://liveusb.info/multisystem/depot/multisystem.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install multisystem -y

Post-installation:

In a termina :

sudo usermod -a -G adm "$USER"

Edit this file:

/usr/local/share/multisystem/gui_multisystem.sh

You comment all lines :

#stop si root!
#if [ "$(id -u)" == "0" ]; then
#zenity --error --text "$(eval_gettext "Erreur: pas en root!")"
#nohup "$dossier"/kill.sh&
#exit 0
#fi

Conclusion :

I did follow above instructions for MintPup, and i installed successfully MultiSystem.

You may not use this app often, but it's nice to have it available as a tool.

Hey, labbe5, does this produce the same sort of multiple image pen drive as Yumi, or does it genuinely install with persistence, etc.? Also, as you've got MintPup working, I've tried DebianDog and can't get it to do anything but a Porteus save. Several of the startup options also seem broken. I use antiX and MX happily, but I would like a Puppy-like, smaller and portable full-Debian OS. Are all the options included in these distros so you can find one that works for you, or are they all supposed to work OOTB? Any advice would be appreciated.
