Thread: Suse 11.1 USB

    Default Suse 11.1 USB

    hi,

    I was wondering if there is anyway to putting open suse 11.1 onto a usb that has a persistent install, and to boot it off any other computer that saves your settings.

    Would this also work for external hard drives.

    A friend here forwarded me these to links only shortly ago. I would suppose they will help you too, in order to get an answer to your question. Cheers.

    SuSE install from USB drive - openSUSE

    Installing SuSE on External USB Drive - openSUSE
    Just "clicking away" security warnings about a change in repo signature ? Not able to control?

    openSUSE should have an efficient web of trust.

    It looks like creating a USB appliance on SUSE Studio now makes a persistent stick. I used imagewriter to write the .raw file to the USB flash drive, booted it, made changes,created a file, rebooted, and those changes stuck.

    I am wondering if this is new. I don't think it did this as of two weeks ago, but maybe I was doing something different / wrong at that time.

    Hi
    I've only recently started using the raw imager so not sure if it's new
    or not.

    I normally just use dd to image the raw file across, have noted
    though after you boot and running fdisk on the usb device the
    partitions are in the incorrect order which is easy fixed with x and f
    commands.
