/root/porteus/make_iso.sh run this script and you can have an iso of your system ,only not run the browser when you run the script because the browser fill the cache every time and change the size.

to simply clone one usb-flash onto another usb-flash you could use the
dd command:
dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdY
replace sdX/sdY with your devices..fdisk -l will show you which are the right ones
be very careful..double check that you have choosen the correct devices,
otherwise you will be in serious trouble..
If you're not sure,don't do it.
btw:you can not clone a device while it is in use.Boot porteus with the
copy to ram option or use a live-cd.

another option is to use a clonezilla live-cd for this task

Thanks, I have tried both...

Approach 1
the make.sh file did nothing at all I was in root and executed it but nothing happened

Approach 2

Great did work but there was no progress indication so waited and waited. Also the usb I want the clone to go to is smaller 4gb that the source one 8gb

Since squashfs is being used regularly with Porteus, I would just squash (mksquashfs) the 8GB usb filesystem. (Then you also have a backup :) ) Unsquash (unsquashfs ) to 4GB usb. Providing of course there is enough space on hd or alternative media to hold the squashed fs. Unfortunately not been able to find my notes on how it was done, so cannot provide step by step description.

hi well you have to choose a media device that allow you the copy of your system when you run the script , you have to have space enough,the dd software make a 1:1 copy of your device in my system i have used always dd.

Hi linuxtothebone,

You have to be very sure of what you are trying to do if you are using dd.
It is a 1 to 1 copy tools. It is able to be used to backup as well.
Your backup location must be bigger than the source. There is no progress showing while it is copying.
It is very destructive so USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

There is another program, called unison. It can be used to make exact backup copy as well.
You can download the txz here and convert it to xzm:-
https://slackonly.com/pub/packages/14.1 ... em/unison/

If the backup usb need to be booted then you will need to re-run the boot/Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com on that usb.

If one want progress indication while copying with dd,use pv (pipe viewer)
if available for slackware/porteus
dd if=/path/|pv|dd of=/path/

I have already mentioned Clonezilla?

Clone an entire device/partition .... dd. (disk destroyer)

Clone Porteus. Like Beny said ... sh /mnt/sdX1/porteus/make_iso.sh
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

we seem to be overlooking the simplist way
a porteus 'installation' is two folders(or three if its uefi boot) -- "/boot" and "/porteus"
copy these(as root) to your target device(i use a file manager)
navigate to the /boot folder in that device
run 'sh Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com' to make it bootable.
