Try this.

Get a blank cdr. Make sure you have a cd writer.

Boot up DSL with the toram cheatcode (dsl toram) and leave the CD in.

edit /home/dsl/.xinitrc to where it looks like this.

Code Sample

# put X windows programs that you want started here.
# Be sure to add at the end of each command the &
if egrep -qv noicons /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null; then
 enhance &>/dev/null &
fluxbox 2>/dev/null

Open up /home/dsl/.filetool.lst with an editor, and add the following text, on a new line.

Code Sample

and run the backup (System >> Backup/restore) to a hard disk (not ntfs), usb, or even a floppy, if the default + this is all you are backing up.

rename the created file to "mybackup.tar.gz"

If you have a lot of ram (256mb or more should be enough) create a new directory in /home/dsl called work, and 2 sub-directories in it called extensions and iso.

If you don't have enough ram, you can use a hard disk partition (not ntfs), or even a usb pendrive. Just make the work folder and its subdirectories. I'll assume from here that it is in /home/dsl, but if it's not, use the appropriate path to there you put the work dir.

move/copy mybackup.tar.gz to /home/dsl/work/extensions.

In the menu, go Apps >> Tools >> Make myDSL CD Remaster

Enter /home/dsl/work/extensions as the extension directory

Enter /home/dsl/work/iso as the directory to hold the new myDSL iso.

Enter nofstab when it says "Enter optional boot time options:".

Follow the remaining instructions, and insert your blank CDR when it tells you to.

When it's done burning, you should have a CD that a normal user, even with sudo powers, cannot mount a partition unless he knows how to do it without fstab, and most people don't.


They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~

in order to close applications that are currently running, you'll need to find out what the application's command is (you can probably guess easily enough from looking at the output of 'top'), and then "killall <command>".  You can probably also use the xkill command to destroy apps by clicking on them, but i haven't tried it.

If you want to prevent certain apps from starting automatically, edit /home/dsl/.xinitrc in DSL 1.5, or /usr/bin/enhance in 1.4 and earlier.

If you're going to ask a question, *please* 1) try the search button first, 2) post in an appropriate forum, and 3) read a thread before you decide to post a question in it.
