All that it does is to show the user a console with some text to which a special key is to be entered. After that everything else is automatic and the user must only acknowledge the end of the process before rebooting the machine. This is a dedicated application, not a general Linux. It could turn out that it takes equal time to strip down a DSL or Puppy (or Slax...) to make it as bare as possible. Also, that USB key is already in service and works well, albeit without Perl.

While adding Perl, I though of doing a bit of generalization of the key and derive it from LFS instead. I already build LFS systems, of course. If not, then _that_ would take a lot of time ! ;-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
