I am using CentOS 5.3 iso image file and using it on VmWare 1.0.6(running on xp) to learn linux.The problem is that whenever i try to install a software and when the server is rebooted everything is gone.Also i am not able to delete any thingh as it give permission error like " cannot remove read only file sysytem.i did some basic googling and found out that my disk is read only.
Please find o/p of some commands.
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5 #1 SMP Wed Apr 1 09:19:18 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
If i need to make persistent image on usb and mount it on vmware,can you please guide me through this.
Now i have already Live cd so please let me know all the alternatives so that i can continue with this setup only untill its not possible at all to work on this setup.As i am new to linux,please help me out guys.
CentOS LiveCD does not support persistence. So It'll require a little work to get it working.
Even if you make this work, you won't be able to get full functionality out of it.
The CentOS LiveCD also does not have a working installer yet. So you can't even install CentOS with it.
Since you are running this on VMWare, why not just download the install DVD & install it into the VM? That way, you have a fully functional CentOS installation.
