Switching major Linux distros to boot read-only

Post#1 by tome » 09 Jan 2016, 18:04

Read-only boot mode is useful if you want:
- make some potentially harmful changes in system, test these changes and configuration
- protect the flash-drive (limited number of write operations)
- use high secure/non-invasive environment
- decide when your changes/staff will be saved

An example how to do it (Ubuntu - aufs, overlayfs) is here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/aufsR ... OnUsbFlash

No intelligence, no life and no information can exist without prior intelligence, life or information (in place where things change and time is running).
