Ubuntu: What changes in a live environment carry over to a install? [closed]



Question:

Well, I loaded up the latest version of Ubuntu and made a MAC address change before installing it and noticed the changed MAC address carried over to a new install I made. Are there any other changes like this that can carry over?


Solution:1

MAC address changes write the new MAC address to the network card. It's kept there so it will apply at moment 0 of power-up. Other changes you make to hardware that is staying behind will stay behind. You can mount the disks rw, and change anything. You cannot expect changes made to software (installs, configuration, removal, etc) while running in Live mode to persist (as the system keeps it's config on the USBstick/CD).
