Difference between various live versions


i understand from the parrot docs that live mode is running in memory instead of hard disk, and that forensics mode doesnt auto mount media or touch the swap partition

but what are the features of RAM mode ? and is it possible to run forensics mode with persistence ?

ram mode loads the entire content of the usb in ram. you can plug our the usb stick once the boot reaches the desktop.

of course you need enough ram to hold the entire usb stick and use the system.

8gb or ram is the bare minimum to use the ram mode

yes you can combine them. if you press TAB or E, you can see the boot parameters that are being passed to the kernel. we prepared some preconfigured set of parameters, but you can manually combine all the options you need and boot the kernel with custom parameters
