i want to install a linux distro, on my 7.3Gb usb stick, i searched for lightweight distros, all i got is "live" distros, i want a full distro that is lightweight and can save my files on it and .files
what do you recommand?
better a 32bit, also im comfortable with cli, so no X needed.

There are many options but my "top three" is Puppy Linux http://puppylinux.com/ Porteus Linux http://www.porteus.org/distro-download/download-64-bit/64.html very easy to install and antiX Linux https://antixlinux.com/ which I happen to run from a usb stick with persistence enabled and it woks just great. Since you said you're confortable with cli, antiX has a core .iso image which is around 300mb and it ships with quite a few handy tools to start using from the first boot; newsbeuter, Links, rtorrent, wordgrinder among others as well as its own cli tools; live-usb-maker, cli-aptiX, antiX-cli-cc – command line control centre. I use Arch myself as my main system but antiX has earned a special place here. In fact, I say go with antiX and you won't regret it, install it or run it with persistance enabled.

Hope this helps! :)
