First of all, BIG THANKS for all developers and supporters for Debian and Debian Live!
I have a USB flash disk with Debian Live (and other bootable tools) and live-rw persistence partition. Made from the downloaded hdd-usb image. All works well so far, a long-term Windows user (me) is learning a proper OS finally :-)
I want to update the Debian live on my USB disk to a daily build without touching the changes/settings/firmware added and stored on live-rw.
How stupid/brilliant/insane/dangerous is to to download the latest hdd-usb image, extract filesystem.squashfs and other files in /live directory and copy them to USB disk (overwriting the old ones)? Will all the hell break loose? Will it help if I delete some files in advance from live-rw in non-persistent run? Will it be perfectly OK? What problems can I expect?
I know I could try the regular update/dist-upgrade with apt-get/aptitude, but this will use more and more space on live-rw. Yes, I know, bigger disks are cheap nowadays, but... I just want to know.
All comments/warnings/suggestions/... are very welcome!
