cannot multiboot ISOs: only LMDE2? or also LMDE1?

Monsta wrote:From release notes:
do not use Yumi or multiboot technologies with LMDE as it won't install properly.
<sigh/> When did LMDE start doing that? Is this new to LMDE2?

Note there are several Mint tutorials claiming to produce multiboot Live media: can only the Ubuntu-based Mints multiboot?

@Monsta: done. I'd point to the request, but can't see how.

@everyone else: if you have further comments, complaints, or questions regarding installing LMDE with encryption or resizeability, please go to the follow-on LMDE2 tutorial thread.

I.e., make it read-only, since its manual procedure is referenced from the new tutorial--works for me.

LMDE install with encrypted partitions or resizable volumes

Unfortunately the LMDE installers do not currently (as of early 2015) directly support either encrypted (with, e.g., LUKS ) or resizeable (with, e.g., LVM ) filesystems. This seems especially unfortunate since the Debian installer does directly support LUKS and LVM2 currently (and has for some time)...

thanks again

Actually, when I tried another install on the same hardware the install seemed to complete correctly. I did get the "CP: cannot stat '/lib/live/boot" blurp again but I cannot find any problems at all with the install. Everything seems to be working as it should after several days of usage. Perhaps ...

Re: LMDE Betsy issue

I encountered no provision in Betsy's installer that allowed me to do FDE through it, therefore I reverted to your script. I guessed :-) As previously noted, it's "out there" until such time as the LMDE installer provides options (like the Debian installer) for LUKS and LVM2 (or equivalents): the L...

password manager for LMDE and iOS?

A friend runs an LMDE desktop, and has been considering using a password manager for awhile. Now she also has an iOS iTouch. What password managers would you recommend that can
  1. run on both LMDE and iOS?
  2. share the same password database easily between devices?
