OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE Live persistent USB hangs

I’ve created a live and persistent USB boot of OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE according to the howto. It boots and works fine for about 5 minutes and then hangs. Only the mouse will move but I can’t click on anything and it never comes back. Any ideas?

Check the space if you are filling root it can just lock things up.

I’ve checked the spaces. It has plenty of room to grow on my 2GByte stick. I haven’t installed anything on it aside from the original .iso and the only modification that I’ve been able to make is setting the homepage on the browser. It hangs too quickly.

How much do you think is enough. Also the question where does the file system reside? If on the USB then all the temp stuff gets written there and there can be a lot. If in a RAM disk then how much memory is on the machine you boot from.

Also a note USB memory stick though they appear like drives are not! They use flash memory and do not even have the abilities of SSD drives. So they ware out quickly with constant writing.
