Adding Modules to SCLive Manually

The previous video highlighted how one could add modules using provided scripts. In this next video we will add modules manually from the http://www.slax.org

Essentially SCLive allows the dynamic addition and removal of modules. To do so, you will have to use the “activate <module_file_name>” and “deactivate <module_file_name>” .

If you are running SCLive in a persistant mode the modules added dynamically will be kept after the powering off SCLive.

    I’ve been running SCLive3.0 and I like it much. You have a nice small Linux system. So I added FireFox manually from the http://www.slax.org site and I used the ‘activate’ command. Everything went smoothly and I used FireFox. But after a powerdown and re-boot the FireFox module was not installed. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hi Dave,

      I’m glad you like it. If you want to keep you modules from one boot to the next, you need something called “a persistant install”.
      To create a persistent installation, you need a USB stick (1 or 2 GB are more than enough). If you follow the video tutorial on creating a persistant installation, you should be able to do that in less than 10 minutes.

      Another option is to create a virtual machine with VMware or VirtualBox or Qemu. once done instead of logging off when you want to quit SCLive, you choose to sustpend (pause) the virtual machine. All you changes are then preserved.

      I hope that helps, there are more infromation on virtual machine in the SCLive user guide.
