crashed save.dat again

Hello Bob1414:
Why don't you simply work with linux file system. This way no need for save.dat container and the saved information will expand at will. :)

@beny:
Thanks for the follow-up. I am attracted to Aporteus. Will surely do at some point. Porteus 4.2 is quite stable for my use. And I might try nemesis too. I like the speed of nemesis.

@Ed:
Donald's trick is the solution for me.

Thanks.

copy2ram: is it for every distribution or livecd

I understand that copy2ram will boost a system speed, the main disadvantage being the llonger time needed to boot into RAM. Some distributions like debian do not have a copy2ram option. Is there a turnaround. For example, while I would be happy to provide an openplotter porteus adaptation of this ma...
