 You might have noticed that the "​-P"​ parameter does not accept a size parameter. ​ This is because the unencrypted container file is created as a '​sparse'​ file that starts at zero size and is allowed to grow dynmically to a maximum of 90% of the initial free space on the Linux partition of the USB stick. You might have noticed that the "​-P"​ parameter does not accept a size parameter. ​ This is because the unencrypted container file is created as a '​sparse'​ file that starts at zero size and is allowed to grow dynmically to a maximum of 90% of the initial free space on the Linux partition of the USB stick.

 +All variants of Slackware Live Edition with the exception of the XFCE variant contain a script "​setup2hd",​ a tweaked version of the regular Slackware setup program.\\ The "​setup2hd"​ script allows you to install the Slackware release on which the Live OS is based, to the computer'​s local hard disk.  You must boot the Live OS first, and then start "​setup2hd"​ either in an X Terminal in your graphical Desktop Environment (aka Runlevel 4), or from the console in Runlevel 3.  The fact that you can start "​setup2hd"​ from a graphical terminal means that during installation,​ you can continue browsing, listening to music, watching video, reading an e-book or whatever else makes you pass the time.

-The "​setup2hd"​ script ​enables you to install the running Live OS to the computer'​s local hard disk.  The "​setup2hd" ​is a modified Slackware installer, so you will be comfortable with the process. ​ There is no '​SOURCE'​ selection because the script knows where to find the squashfs modules. ​ After you select the target partition(s),​ every active module of the Live OS variant (SLACKWARE, PLASMA5, MATE, ...) is extracted to the hard drive. ​ After extraction has completed, the script summarizes how many modules have been extracted. ​ It will also show an example command to extract any remaining inactive or disabled modules manually. ​ The final step in the installation is again the stock Slackware installer which kicks off the Slackware configuration scripts.+The "​setup2hd"​ script is a modified Slackware installer, so you will be comfortable with the process. ​ There is no '​SOURCE'​ selection because the script knows where to find the squashfs modules. ​ After you select the target partition(s),​ every active module of the Live OS variant (SLACKWARE, PLASMA5, MATE, ...) is extracted to the hard drive. ​ After extraction has completed, the script summarizes how many modules have been extracted. ​ It will also show an example command to extract any remaining inactive or disabled modules manually. ​ The final step in the installation is again the stock Slackware installer which kicks off the Slackware configuration scripts.
