I just found Slax after installation and testing under virtualbox / ubuntu.
Now I want to install on a usb bootable.
I unzipped the file on the usb slax.tar
Then I tried to make a bootable but I failed.
What is the solution?
here is the result ...
bootinst.bat dos liloinst.sh slax.cfg vesamenu.c32
bootinst.sh initrd.gz mt86p slax.png vmlinuz
chain.c32 isolinux pxelinux.cfg syslinux

Welcome to Slax boot installer
This installer will setup disk /dev/sdc1 to boot only Slax.
Warning! Master boot record (MBR) of /dev/sdc will be overwritten.
If you use /dev/sdc to boot any existing operating system, it will not work
anymore. Only Slax will boot from this device. Be careful!
Press any key to continue, or Ctrl+C to abort...
Flushing filesystem buffers, this may take a while...
Setting up MBR on /dev/sdc...
bootinst.sh: line 53: ./boot/syslinux/lilo: Permission denied
and give some of those methods a try, and search the board for ubuntu bootinst.sh.
Also, is your device mounted? I believe bootinst.sh needs to be run oun a mounted drive:
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1
sudo bash /mnt/sdc1/boot/bootinst.sh
Also, you may have to be the root user (su) rather than just sudo to make changes to a device's mbr. Try logging in as su.
If mounting the device and trying whatever else you can find on the forum doesn't work, then you can download the slax .iso file, burn it to a disk, boot into it, mount your drive, and go from there. That should get you around the permissions issue.
