Re: Live Ubuntu for a Powerbook G4 1.33GHz 12"
Thanxx, I'll have a look at that thread.
I need to keep in mind that once booted to RAM any change made in the configuration, any new software installed will be lost at next reboot. At least that's what I understand from reading the BootToRAM page. IOW, Persistent and ToRam are kind of mutually exclusive.
I guess then that I'll need to have a fully operating Live Ubuntu (built over time, booting in Persistent mode to save changes) before wanting to switch to a ToRam boot, which only make sense if you don't want/have to modify your install.
I wonder though whether or not it would be possible to add a symbolic link in /usr/bin pointing to a folder in the USB "user partition" (created when building the Persistent Live USB install), such that even when booting to RAM it would be possible to add programs/software...
Also, from what I see, although Ubuntu is said to be more resource consuming than Lubuntu, the latter's distro is 715M (12.04) and no Open Office to strip off, while the Ubuntu distro is 652M and does include Open Office that I could then remove from it...
So, what is there in Lubuntu that I could remove to make the distro smaller, such that it could fit in my 768MB RAM Powerbook (including swap)...?
