This is going to be a generic how to for creating a persistent Antix 11 usb drive. For this how to. I am going to use my Antix 11 i686 Full Iso Unetbootin Live USB and boot it up on my IBM m57 Desktop

Code:
[email protected]:~$ inxi -F
System:    Host antiX1 Kernel 2.6.36-1-mepis-smp i686 (32 bit) Distro antiX-M11-686 Jayaben Desai 01 May 2011
CPU:       Dual core AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (-MCP-) cache 1024 KB flags (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 svm) bmips 8798.54
           Clock Speeds: (1) 2199.635 MHz (2) 2199.635 MHz
Graphics:  Card: nVidia G71 [GeForce 7900 GS] bus-ID: 01:00.0 X.Org 1.9.5 Res: [email protected]
           GLX Renderer Software Rasterizer GLX Version 2.1 Mesa 7.10 Direct Rendering Yes
Audio:     Card ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) driver HDA Intel bus-ID: 00:14.2
           Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Version 1.0.23

Disks:     HDD Total Size: 322.1GB (0.2% used) 1: /dev/sda WDC_WD3200AAKS 320.1GB
           2: USB /dev/sdb DataTraveler_2.0 2.0GB
Partition: ID:/ size: 16M used: 101K (1%) fs: rootfs ID:swap-1 size: 6.17GB used: 0.00GB (0%) fs: swap
Info:      Processes 96 Uptime 34 min Memory 145.3/2023.5MB Runlevel 5 Client Shell inxi 1.4.95


This procedure can be done on any laptop/Desktop. Either booting from cdrom or pendrive with AntiX 11 with a control center.

Either download AntiX 11 from http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/mepi ... sed/antix/ or use Transmission and download torrent from http://antix.mepis.org/index.php?title= ... #Downloads to demo folder. I always md5sum check my downloads for integrity reasons.

Code:
[email protected]:~$ md5sum antiX-M11-base-686.iso
8e6075a96c640bdc1218a7e85bab3808  antiX-M11-base-686.iso
[email protected]:~$


Now on to making the pendrive.

Insert your pendrive that you are going to make the persistent Pendrive with. I will show you later on how to identify it in Gparted and make sure it is unmounted.

Your thunar file manager should look like so. Click the crossed wrenches in tool bar (icewm) or in Flux box right click on Desktop and pick controlcenter from menu.

Next open Gparted to get drive identity. I'm am doing this the gui way for new users instead of command line.

As you can see. My pendrive is /dev/sdc and is formatted as fat32. Just a stock pendrive. You will also see that it is unmounted. If your is mounted. Just right click on the drive in gparted and pick unmount.

Close gparted when done.

Now in drives section of antix control center hit the antix2usb box and a window should open like so.

Now we know that /dev/sdc is the usb drive that I wish to make my persistent usb on. I pick that from the drop down menu. I also find my antix 11 .iso in demo also. I am using ext2 file system on my usb. ext3 file system choice is also available from drop down menu box for file system.

After hitting OK. You will get a prompt that it is safe to remove the pendrive. I just shutdown and am going to enjoy the new Pendrive I just made. Enjoy yours also. Happy Trails, Rok 8)
