Can I save programs downloaded on a Live CD?
Question : Can I save programs downloaded on a Live CD?
Answer : The answer is no because Live CD is read-only, you may not be able to write on it.
But there is always a solution to save a file into an existing volume like hardrive or pen drive .
First you must have a formatted volume, hard disk or usb thumb. Then, while running Linux on a live cd you mount the volume.
Second, you may now create a folder on the mounted volume and copy files into it. To find out whether the copied files are saved reboot the live cd, remount the volume and browse check if the saved file in the previous session is still there.
If you copy files from the internet be sure to browse into the mounted /mnt/volume/folder/ and there save the file.
