Sabayon 5.2 Live Free Extra Usable Disk Space

Postby donutyummyumm » Tue Apr 06, 2010 18:20

Hello, I installed Sabayon 5.2 on my Flash Drive as a live distro with unetbootin. Can anyone shed some light over whether or not I can free disk space or rather let my drive use more of it without having to install again (e.g. using terminal), or, in the least be able to increase the size of the tmp folder.

In the file /etc/fstab you can adjust the size of tmpfs partition, in percents from your actual RAM

I'll read it thank you very much. The reason I have it as a live on my flash drive is because I use it as a temp at school in my class to do my work off of since I hate using the computers that are infected with keyloggers. Coming home and seeing Eset remove is pleasing knowing its doing its job but why take the chance.

And what "Miniedition" would that be, pray tell?

^The Mini Edition is obsolete. It's out of date. history. In the 'old days', SL LiveDVDs grew to 4+ GB, and the Mini Edition was a reaction to that. With separate KDE and GNOME Editions, the LiveDVDs are now around 2GB, so they are, in effect, 'mini editions'. There is a Core Edition, which is a 'bare bones' SL without desktop environment, wireless and other things; it's intended for more-experienced Linux users who want to 'roll their own'.

TY for info, if equo is installed with Core Edition, then there is a big chance to get DE working :)

It is installed with the Core Edition. See SL Wiki for details (including illustrated walk-through). You can install a desktop environment on top of a Core Edition install quite easily, and it does not just have to be KDE or GNOME: E17, XFCE etc. can be installed - see various threads in the SL forums for details.
