Install Fedora 14 directly on USB thumb drive
I was wondering if it was possible to install Fedora 14 directly to a USB thumb drive. I want to use an 8gb thumb drive as a hard drive with Fedora 14 on it. The "Live USB" feature is nice but it doesn't keep kernel updates. Also, I find that the Fedora USB install as well and the Pendrive Installer waste a lot of space on the thumb drive by allocating too much to /tmp and other directories.
When I attempt to install directly on the USB, I receive the message "Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough space for LVM requests." Any solutions?
I know it's possible to install Linux to a CF card and have it boot like a hard drive. My company at work does this for their customers. Can I do the same thing for a USB drive?
Thank you in advance!!
If the above confuses you, search on "prepare usb stick linux" or similar
And, if you do not use the dd command, try
There are other methods like using the commands fdisk or cfdisk
(see CrunchBang forum how2's and/or the manual for aptosid)
