What can I do and not do on a persistent system?

You have to keep in mind that a persistent system is a Live system on which there is an overlay that is writable.

This means that core files are in read-only mode while other files are in read/write mode.

What you cannot do on a persistent system:

  • updates core files (kernel, etc...) = no full system updates
  • install drivers

What you can do on this kind of system :

  • install some software
  • do some software updates
  • create some files/folders
  • install Linux (from you USB key) on your PC's hard drive
