Configuration for a Debian live system. With this configuration it should be possible to create a Debian live ISO-image on a Debian 8 (Jessie) system.

You need the live-build tools. You can install them by this command:

In the directory where you have this configuration, you can build the image by this commands:

Or simply by calling make .

The resulting ISO can be dumped on a USB thumb drive. Be careful when doing this, if you give to of= the wrong device you may destroy data.

Persistence is enabled by default. Whenever you want to boot with persistence disabled, you have to remove persistence of the commandline in the boot menu.

For persistence to work you need an persistence partition with an persistence.conf file. For example, if you want a persistent /home folder you can create in the remaining space of the USB thumb drive an extra partition with the label persistence . Add to this partition a file persistence.conf with the following content.

There is also a small script that will create a persistence partition for you. In addition it will create one data partition that is also accessible by Windows PCs. You can use the script like this:

User and password

Name: user Password: live

Speeding up successive builds

If you want/need to build the image more than once, you can speed things up by installing approx. Here is what my /etc/approx/approx.conf looks like:

And in /etc/live/build.conf I have added this line:

More and much better configurations can be found at the git repository of the live-build project itself.

On a standard desktop installation, I created my administrative and user login. Further with some applications, the system ask for the root password.

So my question is: What will be the default password for the root login when I never created it during the installation process?

By default root does not have a password and the root account is locked until you give it a password.

When you installed Ubuntu you were asked to create a user with a password. If you gave this user a password as requested then this is the password you need. If not, or you have forgotten it, then you need to set a password.

Once you have an administration password you can use sudo to run commands that would otherwise require you to be root and enter your password.

If you want to set a root password see this question How to enable root login?

However, read all the answers carefully first to make sure you want to do this. It’s not recommended and many of the answers explain why.

I am trying to use Debian live from an USB, however I do not succeed in logging in…

What is the standard user and password to get access?

I have tried searching this question on the internet and used combinations of standard user credentials that I found such as live/live, root/root, root/live, and combinations without a password. None of them worked.

This problem applies to Gnome, KDE, Xfce for me.
