    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    Okay, I can see why you'd think that. And there are certain things about something like a liveUSB that loads into RAM and never writes to disk that are handy, like for utility purposes. A gparted.iso (which is a lightweight debian good for little else than running a fully-equipped version of...

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    I'm just going to agree. It is time for me to blast into the future where people respond to the title of a thread without reading any of it or knowing anything about the topic. I thank you @bob466 for showing me the light!! I will immediately stop reading and trying to learn things. My...

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    You're fine bud, no need to cuss. I might get mad when the 20th person talks about their live USB and has no idea what the thread is about. You're only the 5th or 6th.

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    I think what I used to frugal install MXLinux came from Anti-X and it's awesome!! Everything I was thinking about they had already set up and easy to use.

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    Well, we're talking about loading into RAM and being able to save, not how you use your live session of Mint.

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    @dos2unix Okay, there's a lot of bad information and flat-out wrong things in your post. There's many different options when it comes to loading into RAM and how and when you save. It's not the same as a liveUSB. 1. booting slower - not that noticeable on frugal installs I've worked with...

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    Well, that's the thing. RAM is still way faster. My gen3 machine I upped from 550 mb/s 2.5" SSD to 3,000mb/s+ nvme, (gen 4 nvme is 7,000mb/s+). But look at RAM speed by comparison. DDR4 data transfer rates: DDR4 2133: 17,000mb/s DDR4 2400: 19,200mb/s DDR4 2666: 21,300mb/s DDR4 3200: 25,600mb/s...

    Linux usb ISO's rarely compatible. Fix it ?

    Have you examined your BIOS settings? Mine, for example, has one setting that toggles either "Windows UEFI" or "Other OS". But there are many BIOS settings which can affect whether .iso's will boot or not. Another option, if you can install Ubuntu then you can do sudo apt install...

    What Linux distros load entirely into RAM?

    EDIT - This is not about liveUSB's. Although, you can use them and make saves (i.e.-write to disk) if you want. This is more about frugal install or typical file directory install which loads to RAM and also saves (writes to disk), and the options for how and when you do that. Hello, I've been...

    NVIDIA install guide

    As of 02-11-2024 there is a bug with the 6.1.0-18 kernel. If you try to install the nvidia driver on that kernel and get errors, I suggest the following. Reboot your computer, and use the Advanced Options in the grub menu (below the usual Debian option you use), selecting 6.1.0-15 (or whatever...

    Partion related query.

    It's fine. If you don't have a seperate partition for /home it just lives happily in the same partition as / , 50G will probably be plenty unless you start saving lots of videos, getting large programs like modern games or something. But if it starts to fill up, that's what flash drives are for...

    EasyOS: An Experimental Distro With Unique Qualities

    easy-5.7-amd64 is released. download_link I've been fascinated with Puppy Linux and related distros so I'm taking a look at it. I actually really like JWM, it has tons of options for such a lightweight desktop. In EasyOS I found a selector between JWM and ROX, when I did JWM my taskbar turned...

    Deepin 23: 7 Features to Look Out For

    It's fantastic!! I have Deepin v23 beta3 and I can't get over how it is somehow simplified (like I'd put it up against any distro for someone to switch straight from Windows) but at the same time powerful. I get administrative permissions as a sudo user easier than w/ Debian. I had some...

    Fresh Installation Of MX 23

    Desktop, nvme gen3 SSD, UEFI-only. I only regret I did not spend adequate time using MX Linux. I distro-hop alot and have a keen interest on BIOS settings, multi-booting, installations, nvidia driver, difference between desktops, included software, and so forth. I was very impressed by MX Linux...

    Fresh Installation Of MX 23

    Agreed, MX 23 is an excellent light-weight/mid-weight distro (depending on your perspective) and the installion is a snap! If I understand correctly, there is a strong connection between MX Linux and Anti-X, but the Anti-X installer is the opposite. It's very confusing.

    NVIDIA install guide

    This is thorough, current (as of 01/26/2024), and hopefully newb-friendly. If a newb follows my guide step-by-step, they will succeed in getting their NVIDIA working (and working well) on Debian 12, but also learn many valuable things about Linux while doing it. There is a lot of information...
