    Hi
    Have you tried the 'hard way' here using dd_rescue?
    SDB:Live USB stick - openSUSE

    But is it 11.2, 11.3, SLED? :-)

    You'll want to change your password - I did not ask for you to send that
    over to me, and I don't intend to use it. Having worked in IT for many
    years, I would never ask anyone to send me their password. :-)

    As I go in and look at the formats available, though, there is an option
    for a USB or Hard Drive image, and that's bootable - is there a reason
    you cannot use that?

    I had forgotten that option existed, but that's how I did this with my
    setup.

    Yes there is an option for a USB or Hard Drive image, and that's bootable.
    And yes there is a reason I dont want to use it.

    USB raw image is not a live system image.
    It just installs the distro into the usb and extremely slow because of USB is slower than HDD.
    It also takes so much space than live images.(600MB iso/2400MB raw)

    But read-only live images are so much faster.
    Live image with usb boots 20 seconds, programs respond very fast.
    Raw usb boots 70 seconds and programs respond very slow.

    USB is not suitable for installing, it is more suitable for live images.
    I just dont want to use persistance, it makes everything slower for saving my options.
    But hey anyway I dont want to save my options, I want to use my live iso as playground.
    If I wanted to save my options i dont bother to create live cd, i make installer cd instead of.
    And the usb raw image is not live.
    I think I am starting to repeat myself.

    Thanks for trying to help me Jim.
    You are a real administrator.

    Well, OK, I've deleted your PM and didn't read what the password was, but
    if anything odd happens with your account, change your password.

    OK - I had missed that on my first read. It may be, though, that for the
    time being using the disk image is the best option available until
    support for LiveUSB devices is added. Did you open a feature request for
    this in openFATE? If not, I suggest you do, that way others can vote for
    it as well (I know I would, I'd really like to see that feature myself).

    Note, too, that the performance you see with LiveCD media is because the
    compressed filesystem is cached in memory - so you would need to offset
    the slower performance with additional memory - that's why you see the
    difference in performance.

    Thanks for your suggestion Jim.
    I requested the feature on openFATE.
    I suppose there is nothing we can do but wait now.

    No problem - you've got my vote for it. :-)

    [QUOTE=tremere51;2292105]Thanks for your suggestion Jim.
    I requested the feature on openFATE.
    I suppose there is nothing we can do but wait now.
    Thanks for all your helping and answers.

    I can help you get it going.. its a bit messy, but it works.
    1) Use unetbootin on your live iso image
    2) Make a temp folder on your disk and extract the initrd from the newly created usb stick. Eg.
    mkdir /tmp/INITRD
    cd /tmp/INITRD
    zcat /media/USBNAME/boot/i386/loader/initrd | cpio -icudv

    3) Edit the include file and change the function CDDevice..
    I have ..

    Code:
    function CDDevice {
            # /.../
            # detect CD/DVD/USB device(s). The function use the information
            # from hwinfo --cdrom to search for the block device
            # ----
            IFS=$IFS_ORIG
            local count=0
            local h=/usr/sbin/hwinfo
            if [ $HAVE_MODULES_ORDER = 0 ];then
                    for module in sg sd_mod sr_mod cdrom ide-cd BusLogic vfat; do
                            /sbin/modprobe $module
                    done
            fi
    #       Echo -n "Waiting for CD/DVD device(s) to appear..."
    #       while true;do
    #               cddevs=`$h --cdrom | grep "Device File:"|sed -e"s@(.*)@@" | cut -f2 -d:`
    #               cddevs=`echo $cddevs`
    #               for i in $cddevs;do
    #                       if [ -b $i ];then
    #                               test -z $cddev && cddev=$i || cddev=$cddev:$i
    #                       fi
    #               done
    #               if [ ! -z "$cddev" ] || [ $count -eq 12 ]; then
    #                       break
    #               else
    #                       echo -n .
    #                       sleep 1
    #               fi
    #               count=`expr $count + 1`
    #               udevPending
    #       done
    #       echo
    #       if [ -z "$cddev" ];then
                    USBStickDevice
    #               if [ $stickFound = 0 ];then
    #                       systemException \
    #                               "Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drive !" \
    #                       "reboot"
    #               fi
                    cddev=$stickDevice
    #       fi
            if [ $stickFound = 0 ];then
                    if grep -i -q "stick=[a-zA-Z0-9/]" /proc/cmdline; then
                            cddev=`sed 's/.*stick=\([^ ]*\).*/\1/' /proc/cmdline`
                    else
                            cddev=/dev/disk/by-label/USBNAME
                    fi
            fi
    }
    4) Recreate the initrd Eg.

    find . | cpio -oc | gzip -9 > /media/USBNAME/boot/i386/loader/initrd

    It should now work. Btw USBNAME is the volume name of the stick. I have not tested the commandline stuff, and I boot the suse distro not the unetbootin, you can change the menu on the stick to suit your needs.

    Hope this helps !

    Cheers Ross
