I really like the new alphaos based on linux-live scripts.
Just a few options I miss comparing to the puppy-setup style.
One of them is the "save on exit" option (as pupmode=13 in puppy)
So, modifying initrfs.img I edited init and lib/livekitlib.
It was easier than I thought it would be, (never had the courage to edit init from puppy) but it probably needs some polishing.
To use this,add "chexit" (without quotes) to your boot options in grub(4dos) or syslinux config.
And more; See info in the README.
EDIT: made correction, new upload:
Hope more cheatcodes gonna come (copy2ram maybe?)
