Where is data on a nonpersistant Live CD stored?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 10, 2013
When I boot up Linux Mint from a Live CD, I am able to save files to the "File System". But where are these files being saved to? Can't be the disc, since it's a CDR. I don't think it's stored in the RAM, because it can only hold so much data and isn't really intended to be used as a "hard drive". The only other option is the hard drive... but it's certainly not saving to any partition on the hard drive I know about, since none of them are mounted. Then where are my files being saved to??

Where is crontab stored?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2010
Just had to replace by boot disk which is on a USB stick. Fortunately I had a backup that isn't too far out of date. I have recently created some root cron tasks by running crontab -e.
I can still read the corrubt usb stick - but where do I fund the cron entries?
Where is Hostname Stored?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2007
I've used the DNS tab of the Network Configuration dialog to change the host name for my F8 box. After reboot, command "hostname" shows the new host name, but I can't find the file that has been updated with the new host name.
What file does F8's Network Configuration dialog update when I change the host name?
[SOLVED] Environment Variables. Where are they stored?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2008
Does anyone know where, in what file or files, the environment variables are stored? I need to restore them because I messed up my system and they are now gone. I can't log on anymore because my home directory is on another drive. I loaded a LiveCD so I can get to the filesystem. /etc/fstab is correct but, for some reason, it can't find /home on the other drive. So, I am concluding that the environment has been overwritten, or destroyed, and needs to be reset.
Where are drivers stored?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 27, 2004
Ok, what I'm trying to do is find out where, in this case my video drivers are located. Why? Cause depending on the distro I get better or worse support for my radeon320m. Suse9.1 so far have done the best job. But don't want to use suse, rather slackware which performance is terrible. Both distros recognise the card and load appropriate drivers however suse drivers outperform the slackware ones by far.
If I could copy over the drivers (form suse) to a fresh slackware install it should work right?
Ok the perfomance of the slack drivers is bad enough not to be able to watch a video clip larger than two inches square!
What do you all recommend?

Where are Cookies stored?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 21, 2010
I have been looking all over for this answer. I know how to delete cookies, I actually want to open the cookie files and read them. I can do it on Window's IE but I am not sure if Firefox even saves cookies to an open file like that. Any ideas on what to do or how Firefox is holding cookies? I've looked under firefox's folder in the root directory, but still nothing. Windows had them in a hidden file, maybe there is a hidden file for this too or something else?
Where are executables stored ???
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2004
Aaah my first day with Linux. I have installed several programs but they do not appear in the list of "known" programs and I have no clue which directory they are stored in. I just need a path to the executables please. Strange operating system that installs something then doesn't so much as leave you a shortcut or tell you where it installed it to or how to find it...
