Nokia-M$ Strategic Alliance

Posted 09-19-2011 at 12:29 PM by archtoad6
Updated 09-19-2011 at 12:33 PM by archtoad6 (finally post)

Edit 2011-09-19:
This was written shortly after the 1 Febuary 2011 press release; but got left, unfinished, in "drafts".
Although I don't remember what else I was going to say, I am posting it now.
Needless to say, it deserves some updating about the last 9 months developments.

Thoughts on cross-posting & reporting it.

Posted 09-19-2011 at 12:08 PM by archtoad6

This was inspired by a recent triple post, & was originally going to be posted in the unclosed duplicate thread. As I got to the end of writing it, I realized that I was becoming guilty of "piling on" & decided to place this here in my blog instead.

<New User>,

Back to the drawing board

Posted 09-18-2011 at 02:26 PM by Thor_2.0

Okay, so, this approach failed. And...I think I know why.
Starting a Live CD (any Live CD) creates a file system...in memory. Installing anything makes that install in ... memory. I tried to persist that to disk by copying, but to no avail.
For example:

Quote:
grub-install /dev/sda
did'nt work, could'nt stat rootfs, so

Quote:
grub-install --root-directory=/boot
failed too, as it installed in memory.

Back to the drawing board......
