carcassonne has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I'd like to install perl on a bootable USB key (512 MB). The directory where it'll reside will be, once the USB key has booted and is mounted, /usr/lib/perl5/. The files will be on the USB key, not inside the initrd. The initrd will mount the USB key and /usr/lib/perl5/ will be linked to the files on the key.

What's the best way to do that ? I thought of copying that perl5 directory off SuSE 10.0 to the USB key, and then using the same SuSE 10.0 kernel.

Any suggestions/ideas appreciated.
