Possible to install from an USB?
I thought I would have a sneek peek on Puppy Linux today. I happily downloaded the image and tried to create a bootable usb stick. Followed the same scenario as I did when I tried Lubuntu, but no... I got a surprise!
It looks like it's not possible to use the "startup disk creator" in Ubuntu.
So here I stand, haven't used my dvd drive for almost four years, it's even not assembled on my stationary computer, non of my laptops have a dvd either.
I think my curiosity runs out in the empty space...
Anyone knows if there is an easy way to create a installer on a usb stick (without to first burn a dvd)?
If someone in the puppy team reads this, I hope you take this as an feedback. Easy to try will hopefully get more users. Would be nice with the same functionality as Ubuntu/Lubuntu have, "run from usb stick without the need to make an installation".
Hi, you'll need root access to do this, su or sudo...
you may read more about this here.
I seem to recall I have used unetbootin to create a bootable Puppy USB in the past though the dd method above should work fine.
Thanks! I tried unetbootin and I created a bootable USB drive successful (both Slacko 5.6 and Lucid 5.2.8).
However, the computer an Acer Aspire One did not won't to boot, I only got a black screen with a blinking cursor :(
Tried the USB drive on another computer and it could run puppy successful.
Let see if I have the curiosity to continue an another day :)
(At least I have read about people that run puppy on an Aspire one.)
