Therefore i fail to understand your reply. Could you please eloborate.
Does that mean adding commands by way of terminal?
Yes, you do have to make (rebuild) the liveusb.
When a livecd/usb is created, all the installed packages are "cast-in-stone" in a readonly, compressed filesystem using the squashfs tools. Therefore, when you run a live usb, the O/S etc is read from this filesystem and actually run from memory. When you install a new package, it is available during your current session and lost upon reboot because is not written back to the squashfs. Only your user data is saved in the persistent partition.
Therefore you have to install any new packages during the build process.
I'm sorry for confusing you because you are probably using the GUI (wrapper) tool to build the liveusb. I use the command line tools (livecd-creator
) and copy the desired "kickstart" (.ks) files to my own subdirectory to alter as per my requirements. Then I call the livecd-creator using my local copy of instead of the standard ones located in /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/custom
You may be able to get away with simply editing these (as root). Be sure to back any file that you edit up first!
Also, I'm still using modified kickstart files from Fedora 9, so I don't guarantee your results!
