    updates without caching

    Greetings to all.

    I want to create a USB key that installs updates, but does not use the USB for browser cache, etc.

    I know casper-rw allows a user to save files and preferences but, again, I do not want to use the USB for browser caching, nautilus caching, etc.

    Thanks in advance for you assistance.

    Go into the Firefox preferences and disable caching, there are hundreds of HOWTOs easily searchable on this.

    Re: updates without caching

    Eighteen months later, the answer to this question is to copy the files in /var/cache/apt/updates to a folder on your USB. Once you boot, copy them back to the mentioned folder. Run
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    and then copy to a new folder on USB. Redo as necessary, but I've found just copying the adobe and firefox updates does what i need.
