Bake things into ubuntu live

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have computers in my school (a class) for about 80 mins a day. It’s kind of like free time , well my problem was that the pc's in schools were too slow, especially when there were 100+ students on the network. I made a thread in the ssd forum here, to see if I could run windows off an ssd via usb and boot that way, but the members here told me it was not worth it (usb 2.0 speeds limitations). I came to the conclusion that I was going to install ubuntu on a live usb, and since I could not get internet from the server, I would tether from wifi my phone via a mini wifi dongle on the pc.

Now my question is there a way to install programs and drivers into ubuntu, then make it a iso and then install it to my usb drive? Things like the wifi drivers, chrome (if it’s available on Linux), ECT. ??


Sorry for the long post guys and thanks
+rep will be distributed to those who deserve it

well id vote for crunchbang its not exactly light weight on the install size (about average id say, 2.2g once stuff is configured) but as far as performance goes, openbox will smash an over bloated gnome set up

Are you using a USB drive or a SSD?

If its a SSD just do a normal install. You should be able to just plug into your school computers and boot it with minimal difficulty.

If its just a regular flash drive then you'd be better off with a live CD, since the normal read/write cycle of a full OS will wear your flash drive out. You can actually create a persistent live CD that will retain any settings and installed programs:

Puppy Linux doesn't use Gnome

And it's persistant, by default (just save the sfs file to the USB drive when shutting down)

Have you checked that USB boot is enabled on those PCs? Have you checked that you can boot from anything other than the HDD?
