    Hello persistent USB.

    On this link, step 7, you say "set about doing the persistant USB". Can you post that please?

    Hello persistent USB.


    It is very simple actually. Here is how I did.

    1) Download Mint 6 Live iso.

    2) Burn the same iso onto a CD.

    3) Boot with Mint Live CD that you just burned.

    4) Go to Synaptic Package Manager and search for usb-creator

    5) Install it.

    6) Connect the USB stick and launch the just installed USB-creator.

    7) Set about doing the persistent USB, give the entire space as persistent. However only 2GB possible no matter however big the USB stick is.

    8) Once it finishes, reboot with the USB.

    9) Hit [Tab] at the Mint boot menu and add "persistent" to the kernel line

    10) Boot it, change some settings, like changing wallpaper, fonts etc and reboot again adding the same "persistent" word to the kernel. Also check /home to make sure it has spanned the entire space of the assigned perisitent storage.

    Hello persistent USB.


    I'm trying to get this working with mint 6. I have the mint 6 live cd on USB drive working all fine, but I'm having issues with the persistent mode. I tried numerous posts which edit intrd. I also tried adding persistent option but no luck. Is there something I'm doing wrong or can you elaborate?

    I've done this but no luck:

    append initrd=/ubninit file=/cdrom/preseed/mint.seed boot=casper persistent quiet splash --
