Running Tinycore / Mircrocore completely in RAM
« on: March 17, 2018, 12:20:03 AM »
Hi , is it possible to run Tinycore / Microcore completely in RAM (rootfs, kernel, libs, etc.), i mean if i boot from an usb storeage device (which cotains one partion and and on it the whole microcore system) a microcore system, first read MBR(masterboot record), copy content from usb storage into RAM,  and then boot the microcore system... is that possible?

Thanks
Halma

I believe you're refering to copy2fs.flg

Code: [Select]
touch /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/copy2fs.flg

Hi halma
As polikuo pointed out, creating a  copy2fs.flg  file will do what you want. In addition, make sure you do not have persistent
/home  or  /opt  directories on the drive. You should then be able to use the  umount  command on the drive and unplug it
if you wish.
