Is there some other way than unetbootin to create a persistent live-usb? (from a mint12 machine)
Linux Mint Debian is not the same as the main Linux Mint based on Ubuntu. This includes how to make it persistent among many other things.
grml is a live system based on Debian, and I have found many of the cheatcodes and methods to work with LMDE also, please try something from this page and let us know. First you add the cheatcode persistent to your menu entry; http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=persistency
and cheatcodes http://git.grml.org/?p=grml-live.git;a= ... tcodes.txt
I guess you would add it near the end of the linux line
- Code: Select all
linux /casper/vmlinuz boot=live live-media-path=/casper persistent noeject nopromt --
Maybe? I'll try soon too....
EDIT: I didn't give you Syslinux format, but since Unetbootin uses Syslinux, you will of course need to use that format when you edit the Syslinux menu to add the entry for persistence. Again, I need to try it myself.
