Exclamation Persistence problem on USB key


My first post here

I've installed FEISTY, on USB key, by copying the LIVE CD onto the key.

When I boot, I always select PERSISTENT mode.

Correct me if I'm WRONG, but doesn't this mode allow you to make change to UBUNTU (cofiguration) and they get save on your key. So the NEXT time you BOOT, your changes will be there?

Well, doesn't work for me, CHANGES are lost from one time to the other.

Pleas HELP.

Thanks in advance.

Note the part about the persistence not working if the partition name is in uppercase.

Thanks Nishtya,

I've done the same steps, but in linux using the LIVE CD (Feisty). But no luck :-(

It won't save my changes in PERSISTENT mode.

Persistence is broken in feisty. It hasn't worked since herd3.
