Hey Guys, total LFS newbie here...
As the topic suggests, can I get help installing the LFS live cd onto my usb drive?
Yes, I read the website.
Please don't post a link to it.
I'd like just a simple, plain English version of how to do it...
As I'm VERY confused, and new to ISOs, and Live cds in general.
Well, I tried using several different tools to set it up. It WILL boot, however, neither of the two options (Linux, or Linux_64) will work, saying something along the lines of what it needs to boot cannot be found. :/ I read the LFS Live Cd website, and they have instructions on how to do it, however, they're EXTREMELY foggy on key details, in my opinion.
Well, My issue is I'm constantly traveling, so I don't always have access to my box, and it's inconvenient to telnet or SSH. I'm just looking for instructions on how to put the bootable LFS live CD on a USB drive...
I tried putting the ISO image I downloaded through Unetbootin, and it did start, though it started putting the same message Cannot find /lib/(There's more to it) repeatedly onto the screen, followed by a kernel panic
I tried a Ctrl-C, with no results.
I'm guessing the ISO was put together in an odd way; And because of that the filesystem isn't mounting properly.
I've got about 3 years of Linux under my belt, but this is beyond me.
